the d&c is scheduled for tuesday. which happens to be june 28th. my wedding anniversary.
last year we planned a trip to the keys for our anniversary. we had just finished ivf #1. we had found out that it was a bust. and 2 days before we were to leave for our trip to the keys we found out that i needed a methotrexate shot. we had to come home early from our trip so that i could go to a doctors appointment.....it was great.
so obviously. i just knew i would start bleeding while we were on vacation. we didn't even make it to key west. half way there we stopped at our favorite restaurant in islamorada.....i went to the bathroom and found a massacre. we weren't even fucking there yet!! i half of our trip i spent self medicating. advil, scotch, and sun. the other half i spent in bed, with tears in my eyes.
Happy 2nd Anniversary.
so when they called on thursday to say the d&c would be tuesday....i wasn't even surprised. i texted dh to let him know. he responded with, "great. not like we have anything else going on." (holy sarcasm batman!)
dr. d is going away at the end of next week. and i know hey have a busy week. and i know they squeezed this in. because it is necessary. and i just didn't have it in me to ask for a different day.
we decided we would celebrate our anniversary today instead.
we planned to go kayaking. and then go to dinner. i was super excited!
we got up early, and dh called the place we were going to go kayak. they said the river was so low (it hasn't rained in a while.....until today, of course) that we would do more dragging a kayak than we would do paddling a kayak. so, no kayaking.
we decided to go to breakfast. i wanted eggs benedict.
we went to the seagate hotel. a local hotel. we know the executive chef and the sous chef, but we have never been. its a chic little boutique hotel in our downtown area. great reviews for both the restaurant and hotel. mostly busy with weddings and large out of town groups..... and GORGEOUS!! i was excited.
we sat and ordered breakfast.....dh didn't think either of our friends would be there, so we didn't even ask.
i got up to used the ladies room....and there was adam. the chef. the best part about dh and i being in the restaurant business is knowing people. everywhere. and the v.i.p. treatment when you know people :D
breakfast was awesome.... i had an eggs benedict trio. a crab, a lobster and a steak benedict. with fresh fruit. i also drank 3 cups of decaf coffee. possibly my favorite part. haven't had any coffee....not even decaf since may 14th ( i know sad that i know the date).
after when we finished the waitress said our check had been taken care of.... so awesome! we stopped at the kitchen to thank adam for breakfast and his hospitality. he asked if we had time, and offered us a tour.
we walked through the kitchen which was AMAZING and so big. i know restaurant kitchens not hotel kitchens.....it was a monster.
we went through the banquet areas, spa and pool area. then he took us up to see some of the rooms. the presidential suite and a couple other suites. soooo cool.
it was great to see adam and so fun to get a little behind the scenes tour.
when we were leaving adam asked when we were going to have some kids.... i said, "we are working on it. it's not so easy for some people"
he was a little shocked by my response but it made me feel good.... it made me feel good to say it. as nice as possible, not bitchy, but more of a hey, this is our struggle kind of thing.
after breakfast we stopped at a consignment shop....i am looking for a dresser and bureau for our bedroom that i can refinish and make my own....i was so excited dh was even interested in going with me.
we came home to relax, go for a swim and hang out with puppy.
later we went to an early dinner. i wanted lobster....
it was soooo good. i had a 3 pound lobster and dh had a 4 pound stuffed lobster. ridiculous and delicious. excited about the leftovers for a little lobster salad... yum!
when we got home i started laundry, and dh decided he was ready to clean out his closet. ( i know, it's crazy, but i have been begging him to clean his closet for months....i told him it would be the best part of our anniversary!). wow was he ready! i have never seen dh let go of so much stuff. i am a fan of purging..... clothes don't have a major shelf life with me. and dh is the type that just holds on. he filled 3 garbage bags with clothes he doesn't wear anymore! it was great.
today was a great day....
i'm so happy we had it.
because the next three days will probably be shitty.
next year....maybe we will go on a cruise, or hopefully a staycation (if i am preggers).... i just know it must be better than the last two anniversaries. (no more ivf in may for us, at this point we would be asking for another crappy anniversary)
