(From a recent gmail journal entry awhile ago…)
My dear husband has been gone for 2 wks for business. Too, too long for me! I am such a baby for that man. I am awaiting seeing him now – just outside JFK. It is 6 am and he flew on a red-eye with next to no sleep. And, I am likely ovulating this second. Any baby making mama & papa knows what that means. And so we will need to get busy, before we miss the whole thing. I would want to anyway, of course. And right now I’m contemplating whether or not we might go to jail if we just park this Rover in long term parking and get busy in the back! (Note: I would do this. But I am certain I can’t talk him into it. 🙂
Oh man, I’ll see him in minutes and I can hardly stand the wait….I am about to go nuts.
So, in case my Rover fantasies don’t pan out (haha), it’s ok cause we’ll also be speeding to Manhattan to an infertility clinic, hopefully by 7:00 am, to have a very official IUI. And then, we’ll race back to Brooklyn, probably missing our friend’s baby blessing (boo), then my husband will dash to Staten Island to give a talk as a high councilman and I’ll stay at the clinic to finish things up. And then, off we’ll go to a huge picnic in the park after church with all our dearest Brooklyn friends. Whew! It will be one very, very long day with no sleep for my dear Danny, but I’m glad he’s up for the adventure. And despite the fact that I’m having trouble conceiving, I’m thankful every single day that he wants to have a baby with ME.
|Here we are at the clinic. I hope we don’t annoy people who are there. No one else seems as happy as we do.|
UPDATE, A FEW HOURS LATER: No romping in the Rover. But wouldn’t that have been fun? Instead we kissed – for a wonderful long time – and I’m surprised those security guys at the JFK curb did not have a fit. My husband smelled so delicious I could just melt. Best smell in the world. It reminded me of when we were dating and when I only saw him on the weekends. His cologne would just about knock me out every time I saw him. And what’s cool is my clothes still smell like him as I wait at the infertility clinic. Can’t wait to be by his side today!!!
