Oh it's Friday. And a three day weekend. How fantastic is that? (Despite the fact that McCain went with Sarah Palin. I mean really? Pander much? And I am really uncomfortable with her super anti-abortion stance. I admire that she had her fifth child despite it having Down's, but don't tell me what I can do with my body. And don't tell me that a victim of rape or incest has to carry a child they don't want. And if she is as anti-abortion as it seems, I bet big money she is against IVF.)
OK, ok, enough politics.
Nothing doing on the clinic front, but I did get an email from a woman looking for an independent donor. I seriously doubt that I'll end up being a good match for her - while we have similar coloring and I think intelligence is important to her, she's taller than I am and thin. But she has written several times and each time she has just said the nicest things. I think it's partially just getting to talk to somebody real, instead of reading silly answers to those cheesy questions they ask on donor forms.
She seems discouraged by the agencies she's looked at and I feel so sad for her. I think about if IVF doesn't work and we move on to DI - will we end up looking and looking, never able to find somebody whose genes we're comfortable with?
And then I think about trying to do this stuff without you guys - and I just can't imagine it.
Gack. All this politics nonsense has rotted my brain and made me all gushy.
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! I am going to try and tackle the floor, so if you're (ha - if *I'm* actually) really lucky my Show and Tell on Sunday will be of flooring miracles.
