Bits and Bobs

Our vacation to our IF relatives was fun.  We didn't have a big long emotional conversation about IF or anything, but it was always there as an undercurrent.  They are going back to Taiwan to try IVF #2 at the end of March.

One thing I found really dissapointing was their nutrition.  DH said his cousin ate really poorly while she was in University - I think like instant noodles every night type of thing.  Could this have contributed to her tubes being blocked?  I would never say such a thing though.

On the way home (we drove) we stopped at a Per.kins and Cr.acker Barr.el.  I mean - this is fun sometimes food.  Cr.acker Ba.rrel is espeically fun for us since we just don't have that type of food here.  And I know it is mostly older people that frequent these restaurants - but - everyone just looked so unhealthy and doughy.  It was pretty sad.

And we ate ridiculously on the trip, since we were on vacation.  There was a day were our only vegetables were a bit of lettuce and tomato on a fat sandwich.  Yikes.

Which brings me to - man, I got sick.  Sunday night the fever/chills came on.  The day long drive home I was in the back of the car being uncomfortable.  But yesterday - woah, yesterday was rough.  I am the type that had a lot of body pain with a fever.  It hurt to move, so I spent yesterday lying in one spot as much as possible.  Thankfully, I think I sweat it out last night.  Today I am just a normal sort of sick.

I looked up my lenten prayer buddy today - she is me, but 1 year ago.  Sort of breaks the heart.  I hope she doesn't have to go through another year of this!


  1. That is nice that you guys have people to talk to in real life! I hope things work out for all of you. Oh yeah, it's always fun to eat what you want on vacation! Hope you feel better!

  2. Food is so tough when you're on vacation, especially when you're staying with people.

    Feel better soon!

  3. feel better soon!
    Miss you.
