- I'm scaling back a lot of my concentration on infertility. While my mood recently has not been all roses and rainbows, I do find that moving on emotionally is a better way to live. I'm seeing infertility like any other disability and it helps to frame it that way. It's not going away so I'd better not dwell on it.
- I have many things to be thankful for, work, finances, health (in all the other body systems.) My work is very important to me. I don't see any reason why I can't rise to the very top of my profession and I concentrate on doing the things I need to prepare for that. This is not without it's problems like potentially seeing my salary rise about my husband's in the next several years. It's really an inevitability as my husband will be long retired when I hit my professional peak.
- We live in an exurb and I've invited my friends, my close friends from the Big City to visit us at our home and have dinner. Really, my cooking has become quite superb. :) Mind you the drive would take them all but 45-50 minutes but nearly all of them quietly refuse. It's finally upset me when Afina said she'd meet us in Mal.ibu for lunch when that's over an hour away from us and and about a half hour from her, both in opposite directions from our homes. I sent her an email which she has yet to respond to saying how important it is for me to host her family in my home. I can't help but feel slighted in this regard.
- My husband and I are taking Spani.sh lessons. It gives us something to do that might turn out to be very helpful. This will be my fourth language!
- I've got some spiritual goals that I should have been working on during Lent but hey, starting now is as good a time as any. I'm working on gentleness, not being judgmental, not complaining, looking on the sunny side of things.
- I just spoke to Jack (first boyfriend, close friend at one time.) I had to get a straight answer as to why we were dropped. He claimed that his wife did not ask him to do that although he could understand the issues with communicating with an ex-girlfriend. I didn't argue with him but explained that his lack of communication hurt me a lot. That felt good to say. Jack said it wasn't intentional and said he was a bad friend. I know I walked straight into this so I'm not at all upset but his wife is nine weeks pregnant and she's having constant morning sickness. I told him we were very happy for them. We're trying to get together, all four of us, for brunch this Sunday. I'm not taking it to heart so much, I guess I just needed to say it.
