Our staycation celebration was lovely. A. and I arrived at the hotel around 5 (I was in class all day so we couldn't leave earlier) and we just chilled in the room for the next few hours. Have I mentioned lately that I am loving red wine?
We went for a delicious dinner at a trendy little resto in the area. A. had elk carpaccio and risotto (two kinds - goat and lobster) while I enjoyed a simple arugula salad and homemade gnocci - yummy. Of course there was wine, lots of wine!
After dinner, I took A. to my favourite dessert place in the city and we had these:
(LC, I used to LOVE diet coke, but have decided to continue not drinking it, but don't worry, I am more than making up for it with the amount of coffee and speciality lattes I am consuming.)
(Seriously, this is quite possibly the creamiest milk chocolate fondu I have ever tasted.)
After dessert, we took our time walking back through one of my favourite streets with trendy shops all ready with their holiday windows and then hit the sheets for some much needed rest.
It was so nice to escape our heads for the night, go out and have fun. We both really needed it.
This coming week is filled with craziness for me. I am hoping to finally connect with NN tomorrow to work out a plan and then have my WTF with Sch.oolcraft on Tuesday where I will be grilling him on his thoughts about testing the remaining embryos (your thoughts on this are so welcome)j followed by Parent Teacher Conferences at the end of the week. I'm exhausted just saying all that. Needless to say, its going to be an emotional roller coaster of a week.
This morning I reached out to two IRL IF sisters. One suffered a devastating pre-term loss of a DE IVF with no remaining embryos. The other, new to the tribe. It was not easy for me to put myself out there, but I have received so much love and support from all of you, that I wanted to do the same for these women.
