My office had a firm retreat today. We all met at our CEO's lake house for some team building. His house was GORGEOUS! I could only dream of such a nice main house but this was his LAKE house! Crazy! The retreat was a great way to get to know people better and show off our competitive spirits. We had a catapult making contest and my team came in next to last. Those who know me know that this did NOT sit well with me. But I was a good sport. It was about 6,482 degrees outside so most of the people (including myself) didn't stick around after the competition to fish. I was sweating through my shirt after only being out there 30 minutes for the contest! He's also throwing a firm lake party on Aug 14th so the hunt is on to find a one piece swim suit. Any suggestions?
I'll finish off my fun day with the Supper Club girls at Heather's tonight. I can't wait to try some new recipes!
Fertility News: I received my FET calendar in the mail today! It shows a transfer date of Aug 5th so that's the day unless something bad happens at my appt next Friday... I also wanted to explain something about the snowbabies. There's about a 60-70 % chance that they'll both survive the thawing process. So there is a very real risk that one or both of the snowbabies may not survive. That will dictate how many I can transfer.
I told the three women I feel closest to in my office about the IVF. I've never been secretive about it but I don't want it to define me either. Well during lunch today one of them outed me in front of our whole table (about 5 other girls.) I couldn't believe it! She didn't know that I'm cool with talking about my struggles. For all she knew I could have been super emotional and started crying on the spot! But she is also the one who offered the "helpful" suggestion that I hold a baby for 48 straight hours. You know, because David Bowie's wife did it and it worked for her... problem solved.
Side note: I just noticed that the numbers I used for the degrees above (6,482) are all even numbers. My obsession with even numbers continues!
