I've also taken other immediate actions: on Thursday I called three eye doctors until I found one who would see me the next day (no less, on his lunch hour). He was cute to boot and smelled of soap - I was smitten. Then yesterday I raced to Target's pharmacy before it closed to fill a much-need prescription because I had three coupons - fill a prescription, get a $10 Target gift card. With two $10 gift cards in hand, I feel like I'm rolling in the dough.
I'm also going through IVF and yesterday had our egg retrieval. There's not much to tell: it went fine, we had lunch afterwards, and I ate a gyro. Well, come to think of it, that was a really slammin' afternoon. But things, on a whole, have been hard. My neighborhood has a horrible rush hour traffic problem and I want to move, which is idiotic on many levels, except that I feel like a prisoner in my own home. The shades are down and loud music is often on so I can go about my business without having to hear the stop and go of all the vehicles. It sounds silly, but it's driving me crazy and I longingly look at houses online that we cannot afford (especially now). I don't want a big house (smaller would be fine!). I just want it...removed. This morning I was beeped at several times for going the speed limit in my neighborhood. I find this particularly noxious: here are drivers who are cutting through a quiet, suburban street and they have the gull to beep. So I gave them the finger. That's pretty much how I take matters into my own hands.
