dreams

Before I start with the post in my head, can I just say how much I LOVE the st.arbucks by work? First, they remembered me when I came back from my leave and made me feel like Norm from Cheers. And then today, after ordering my drink and realizing I forgot my wallet (oops), they told me not to worry about it. Now that is customer service!

Anywho, back to my dreams. Last night I dreamt that I was pregnant again. No worries, I highly doubt that I actually am but it still made me think. While I would love to be pregnant again sometime, now is definitely not that time. But this made me realize I need to be a good girl and make my doctors appt. I'm overdue for my annual (I really think I should get a pass on that...how many times was a doc up in my business already??) and while I'm there I'll talk to him about the testing for the BRCA gene and how that would effect future treatments. While he probably won't be as knowledgeable about it all as my RE, he does do some infertility treatments so it'll at least be a step in my info gathering phase. And it is a step that is covered by my insurance.

And for nightmares, a woman I work with just found out she is pregnant with her second girl. Apparently that is her worst nightmare. I honestly didn't even know what to say. I did say "I'm so glad the baby is healthy and fine" to which she replied, "Of course". But the best part of it all is that her husband is mad at her! I guess he missed the news that the sperm determines the sex. Ahh...ignorance at its finest.

Okay, that bottom paragraph is a nightmare. Sometimes I can't believe how stupid people are.

Our favorite restaurant recognizes my voice when I call for takeout. :)

He he he! Love that your Starbucks folks remembered you! OK, I had a dream Tues night that I was having TRIPLETS. It was nuts. Let's just say I'm not quite ready for that yet. :-)

I agree you should get a pass on your annual exam - enough poking and prodding already. Geesh!

First, Starbucks. That reminds me of a Starbucks walking distance to my house when my first daughter was a baby. I went so much they knew me well and when a new barrista asked my name all the rest shouted "Kim!" in that "you are soooo stupid" tone. To date that's the only time I've ever been famous.

And your last paragraph - good lord that is painfully stupid and you've got to feel a little sorry for the baby girl. I hope they get over it when they meet her.

Oh my, that husband should be sterilized!

That is cool about Starbucks - I doubt the random student workers at my campus dining hall will give me such a reception!

That is fantastic customer service for sure.

And wait, her husband is MAD at her that it's not a boy? WhatEVER. He clearly did not get the memo!
