A quick post today with some updates on what’s new and groovy in my life.
I’m recovering well from post-op. Cramping has basically all but gone away (and it was pretty mild to begin with) and now just some very faint bleeding; it could be withdrawal bleeding triggered by the surgery.
It’s Keiko’s sexy TMI time! Can’t have sex until Thursday. Probably should have better prepared for this because we didn’t um, satiate ourselves before I had surgery last week so I’m running up against nearly a 3-week dry spell. No magic will be happening until I’m done bleeding, either. Have I been on edge lately? A bit.
I’m nesting… BAD. Apparently once they removed that uterine septum to make it nice and roomy for a future child(ren – because let’s be honest: twins are a scary possibility) I want to fill that space with decorations for my home. Specifically linens. I’m mad for new bed and bath linens right now. G-d help me if you dropped me off at IKEA right now? I’d max out our savings right now. Seriously, my surgery triggered a nesting instinct like whoa.
Game of Thrones: I’m finally on board. I get it, I get the hype now. Larry explained the first season and the first half of this season to me with the help of 2 recap videos last night, and as someone who’s a devotee of Skyrim and still refuses to continue the main quest to end game – I don’t know why I haven’t been watching this for months now. It’s like, an epic fantasy orgy of awesome (quite literally, actually).
I have a weird crush on Benedict Cumberbatch. The BBC reboot of Sherlock Holmes is amazing. We’ve been watching it non-stop for the last couple of weeks. On one hand, Benedict Cumberbatch (playing the titular character) is kind of weird-looking. Like, if I passed him on the street, I don’t think I’d pay him much mind. But his portrayal of Sherlock Holmes? HOTT. That’s right, with two T’s. There’s just something about his mannerisms, speech and affectations that make his brainpower incredibly sexy.
Mad Men is the best show on TV right now. There, I said it. This season has been incredible. Am I biased because it’s understood in our house that John Hamm is my freebie? Totally. But seriously – everything about this season, from Don’s new marriage to even Betty’s seeming maturity to Peggy climbing as hard as she can to the top – oh, and don’t get me started about the new post LDS Roger – he just might be my new favorite character on this show – it’s just so good. I can’t wait to watch it each weekend.
We’re going to Turks & Caicos in July! My in-laws are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary in the Turks and Caicos and have invited Larry and I along for the fun. This is huge for several reasons. 1) I have always dreamed of visiting Caicos, the island that is a homonym of my own name. 2) I’m buying a Universal Life Church credential so I can “marry” them again and renew their vows for them Also? It’s the Caribbean. I fucking love the Caribbean. Bummer. Trip canceled b/c we need the money to make babies.
I’m building my first online workshop for The Infertility Voice. It’ll be an 8-week online course that I’m getting really excited to announce soon. It’s going to be really neat: discussions, journals, videos – it’s going to have the works and I think will open up a whole new avenue of support and empowerment in the infertility community. Stay tuned for updates !
I hope to G-d we don’t have a hornets’ nest in our house. I killed one yesterday in our bedroom, after great trepidation and full-on panic attack. There was another one in our skylight on the top floor a couple of weeks ago. Now, I know our house is hella old, but they shouldn’t be getting in like this. Because I swear, if there’s a hornet’s nest somewhere INSIDE my house? I’ll be staying at a hotel until it’s gone. I cannot even put into words how much hornets and wasps terrify me.
Chocolate and cheese. If I could eat these exclusively as my diet? I totally would. #TRUTH

I turn 30 in 10 days. Hubby’s already booked our reservation at Craigie on Main for the evening, at the Chef’s Counter. I cannot wait for this dinner. My birthday wish list is kind of lame (jeans, linens, a natal chart reading) but there’s one thing that always remains constant: takin’ me out to a fancy effin’ dinner. Because if there’s one thing I love, it’s fancy effin’ dinners.
That’s pretty much it up in my world. What’s new with you?
