So...what's been going on in AmyLand? I shall summarize:
I had a birthday! Yay! I'm 33.
So I'm Jesus' age now :-) My brother's response to this hilarious assertion was, "But you're so much less accomplished than him." Tru dat. But here's a picture of me at my birthday party:
Jesus could, however, have commissioned a less Wrecktastic Birthday Cake. There are SOOOOOOO many things wrong with this cake (which was supposed to be a spectacular geeky confection)...so many ways in which this was NOT what we ordered...that I am devoid of comment at the moment:
I also started classes last week, in my ongoing (never-ending?) pursuit of my bachelor's degree (bah - who needs it?). I am taking Cell Biology, Calculus, and Practical Criticism (writing about literature). It's going well. Should be adding 9 hours of "A"s to my transcript in 14 weeks or so...
In Uterus Occupation News, today I had a phone consultation with the new RE and I was very pleased. In telling him about the 25 immature follicles retrieved during IVF #1 I said, "So, I don't know if we triggered too early, maybe?" and he said, "I would say that's exactly what happened." So, you know, INSTANT LOVE. We are going to commence the customary testing as soon as my next cycle starts!
Needless to say, I'm all hopeful and excited and stuff.
