Happy Earth Day!

What are YOU doing today?

Me, I took the bus in to work. I know, nothing terribly amazing about that, but it's something. I might even walk home if I feel energetic. Although it's a pretty long ass walk.

But, I guess walking home will give me time to ponder on the RE's suggestions for next cycle, which I should be learning at 5.30. I'm not expecting much, as actually I thought the protocol worked well. But I'll see what he has to say. I am not optimistic for the next cycle at all. "At all, at all" as I'm probably imagining Mrs. Doyle would have said in Father Ted. But I will go through the cycle just because I said I would, and I'm stubborn like that. "Ahh, go on! - Go on, go on, go on, go on, go on, go on..."

Sorry, but god, I loved Father Ted. I think it somes up the ethos of the series to learn that "Dermot Morgan, who played the title role, died in 1998, aged 45, from a heart attack he suffered during a celebratory party the day after filming the final episode." Now, if there isn't a man who was enjoying life, I don't know what to say.

Ohh, wait, I've rambled off topic. So, Earth Day. Did you do anything? Change a lightbulb to CFL? Start a compost pile? Hang your laundry out to dry instead of using a dryer?

I didn't even realize it was earth day. My DH changed most of the light bulbs in our house to CFL last week. Can I count that? :)

I hope your consult goes well tonight. I agree that the protocol seemed to work well so it might be just a matter of going with the same thing and hoping for the odds to fall in your favor next round. You figure there are women who don't succeed until after a large number of cycles so, in many cases, it probably is just a situation where they only had one normal embryo come along out of a bunch of cycles. I'm hoping that one (or more) will show up for you next time.

I'm a MASSIVE Father Ted fan. Another thing we have in common. Ahh, ya' will have another cycle, ya' will, ya' will!"

I mowed my lawn today. Does that count for Earth Day?

Good luck with your phone consult.

as for Earth day...my dog did some fertilizing in the yard and I turned off the tv and all lamps when GM was napping.
