There is no way to really recap the last two weeks (or more!) since my last post. Just busyness. Craziness. Scattered. Unable to catch my breath. Recovering from a bad holiday. I need to lighten up. I can be too intense...serious...full of myself...too much in my head. I'm either giving every bit of energy I have to something or giving nothing at all. Most times, there is no a balance. My one New Year's resolution is simple - lighten my mental load so that my heart has more of an opportunity to be heard.
So in the spirit of lightening up...I have had this on my mind since about a week after our BFN. It came about while I was trying to figure out how we could finance our adoption process or further treatment. I was thinking of "fundraisers" of sorts...and as twisted as it is, this is an image that came to mind -
Ha! I know, I'm crazy. And I'll send an apology out early to anyone I may have offended by making light of the situation, but what else is there to do? I'm done sitting here being angry and bitter about it all. I'm a fun, free-spirited person...at least I use to be. I miss her. This intense, serious, obsessed, super-negative chick is really a drag to be around.
Anyway, anyone want to go into business making a line of t-shirts for us infertiles? Then we can prance around Target midday and make all those lucky ones feel like asses for wearing their highly offensive "I can grow people!" shirts...see Ashley's post at planetdavila.blogspot.com for the story on that one!
Here's to a lighter 2009...
Revision: Great idea, Jill! Here is an update. I added the pink and baseball style to make it a little more interesting...as well as a warning and invitation (depending on the circumstance) on the back :-)
