Well I just heard back that I will be getting an offer for the outside sales position this week!!! I'm so excited! It is almost like going out and interviewing has given me this new confidence like I can be more, and do more then what I am currently doing. I do have options!!! I haven't felt this good in ages. So that is my little secret and I will be keeping you posted as I hear more...and yes, I am in fact crazy for looking for new jobs while being so close to undergoing IVF. Quick update, approximately CD29 and expecting AF around Saturday unless my ovulation calculation was off. Either way I will probably be getting started very soon!
On to my weekend. I was a little apprehensive about the weekend. Another private thing I can finally share is that my in-laws do not know about our IVF plan. The reason is that they do not approve of any fertility treatments so we made a decision to keep our fertility plans private from them. I was so upset upon finding out of their disapproval I have not visited them in over 8 months (since June of last year). I have come to terms with it and know that we have so many others who are there to support us that while it is sad they aren't going to be there for us in this journey, we have plenty of others who will be...including all of you!
So instead of just dreading this visit I made a plan! A plan to make this trip more of a mini-vacation for myself and find things that I like to do rather than sitting around getting the third degree from the in-laws. Friday was also fun we went out for Dick's birthday for dinner and gambling! Here are some pictures and what I did:
|Saturday morning I got up and went to "town" (Platteville, WI) and had already found a coffee shop online that i wanted to stop in at. I had a chai tea latte and a poppy seed muffin (my favorite!) so I sat and read my book.|
|Next I went and got a manicure while I sipped on my latte!|
|My next big adventure was to climb the "M". It is difficult to see in winter, but here will give you an idea:|
|If you look close you can see the outline through the snow in this picture.|
|I made it but it was cold and windy!|
|...but the scenery was worth it.|
|Saturday night we went out on the "town"! The town consists of a bar and a church :). We chose the bar.|
|Lady got in a nap.|
|Sunday we went for a drive and had some fun with Instagram...|
|...it was beautiful.|
|Sunday we flip flopped our guest bedroom and office.|
|There is still a lot of work to do, but I love it!|
