Oh Bother.

Ah, a full pot of honey. Cool, summer day. Flower-filled meadow. Good friends. Melanie the Pooh. Or maybe Ee-yore without the "woe is me". I will admit this only to you, blog land, but I'm a girl without much drive this summer. Today for example I find myself longing for Friday because then Saturday will be the next day. And Saturday brings a good float in the pool, a nice spy trash novel, and later, a cocktail. I call it the Just Coastin' Cocktail, vodka, fresca and a splash of cranberry. Ahhh.

I haven't enjoyed summer this much in a long time.

E and I are going to San Juan, Puerto Rico next Wed. for a long weekend. It's his birthday and we wanted to get away somewhere relatively easy to get to. The place we're staying has a casino and a spa. And a bar. I doubt that I will lose the ten pounds I planned to lose before next Wed., so I go with a light heart and a slightly chubby physique. No worries. Those ten pounds will be around to lose after San Juan. And it's true, tan flab looks a lot better than pale flab.

And on the infertility front, I ordered my meds today. $2,800. Not quite the same event it was the first time around, but that's ok. Start sometime mid-August, so I've got a few weekends to go.

I'm going back to my meadow now.

Ordering the meds is a big step.

Glad to hear you're having a chilled summer. Hope the trip is fantastic. And 10 lbs can be easily hidden with a tan!!

Thank the gods someone is having a good summer! Seriously, take full advantage of it for me; my summer's totally cashed, dude.

Have fun in PR!

I have been as lazy as all getout this summer. And mostly, I am ok with that. It's been a rough year.

Ugh! IVF drugs are ridiculous! I am hoping mine is not as expensive this time, because I have lots of leftovers from my last flop.

Have a fantastic vacation! That sounds wonderful!

Enjoy your floating weekends, trip to PR, and a few weeks without meds! Wish I could come float in your pool with you...I'd probably sink to the bottom.

Glad you are enjoying your summer! Have a great trip to PR! My dh and I go there every November for our wedding anniversary. The break will be good before you start up again.
