Our life has been stressful in so many ways during the last few months. First there is the obvious infertility stress (duh, infertility blog). Then there is the job hunt stress. Mr. Husband graduates in May and is frantically trying to find math-oriented work somewhere in the U.S. that is in a large, progressive city with an acupuncture school so yours truly can finally pursue her dream of becoming an acupuncturist. Then there is the stress of sick family members and finally the never-ending home renovation madness.
Everything is piling up and the stress is reaching near unbearable levels.
Two weeks ago I was offered the chance to escape from everything and go to Las Vegas with two of my dearest Alabama girlfriends. The room is already paid for and the flight is less than $200. I realize that with all the expenses associated with IVF and a potential cross-country move I have NO BUSINESS taking a trip like this. I also realize that if I don’t escape soon we’ll be spending a large sum of money on counseling.
So this morning I booked one ticket to Vegas. I also ordered an incredibly hot $25 mini dress in gun metal gray and am hunting for some sassy red pumps. It is going to be a weekend of great escape and a chance for the three of us to unwind, kick back and enjoy one another’s company without husbands/boyfriends for the first time in years.
I. Can’t. Wait.
