Handing over large sums of money at once causes ass sweats.

by statia on February 26, 2006

My in laws came into town this weekend. I’ve only met my father in law and my step mother in law once before, which was Thanksgiving of 04. It was such a busy whirlwind weekend, but we all had fun. We took them to one of our favorite restaurants, Cetrella. A few years ago, my in laws decided to move out into the boondocks of Washington, therefore, they don’t get out much anymore. They enjoy the quiet, their horses, and their dogs. Since we’re the type that like the nightlife, love to boogie, we introduced them to the art of cheese (yes, Mac, even though I’ve become more of a cheese enthusiast than I was before, I’ll always have a special place in my heart for spray cheese. *cough*rememberyouroots*cough*) and they were completely ecstatic. They handled our cheese sophisticate like champs and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. My mother in law and I got the lamb shank, and since their menu changes on a daily basis, when they have the lamb shank, you get it, because it’s so damn good, it falls right off the bone. Like I said it, was pretty whirlwind, and we’re both exhausted.

This afternoon, we headed over to Dr. M’s to drop off the extremely large check for our upcoming IVF cycle. To part with that much money in one fell swoop is a little bit hard to swallow. I know it’s for a good cause, but christ, there’s barely enough room on the check to write such a large sum.

I also finally got my meds. My bathroom looks like a doctors office. The payment, the drugs, it’s finally all coming together and I’m down to less than a week left on the pill, and a week until I start lupron.

Hold on, it’s about to get really bumpy.

One week? Holy sh!t! I can’t believe it’s almost here!

Ladies and gentlemen please return your tray tables and seat backs to their original and stowed position. Please ensure all hand luggage that you have used during this flight is stowed back beneath the seat back in front of you.

On behalf of Infertile Airlines we’d like to thank you for flying us because even though you don’t really have a choice of Air Carriers as your hooches are bust, we try to treat you really well. And please-put the hormonal attacks down and we’ll supply you with chocolate until you clear the terminal building.


(We’re ready for ya’, sweets.)

Vanessa’s comment totally made me giggle. Awesome.

I’m glad it’s getting started. That pile will shrink relatively quickly, don’t forget to take the obligatory pre-cycle picture!

Holding on as tightly as I can…!

I didn’t know you had to take a pre IVF picture (thanks Thalia)!
I’m just waiting for AF so I can send off my cheque. I told my RE that outside of my house, this is my biggest purchase ever. I have no idea why he found that amusing? I guess because he owns a new BMW.

Sending good vibes…

Don’t ya just love it when the check amount is so big that you have to use your microscopic handwriting to get all the letters onto the line?

Holy crap, just a week left to go! Good luck!
