Who doesn't love Pumpkin, that is what I want to know

I spent my weekend curled up around a box of cookies.



Thankfully, The Cookies of Love from Pumpkin arrived chez Roccie as I started my Crazy Meds.  The cookies were so good, I ate them in a matter of days (okay, I ate them in just one day) before yuck tummy kicked in.

So, I got this going for me: Crazy Meds kill the appetite.

Not in a fun sort of yessiriamgoingtostayupallnightandparty, but more of a what-if-i-just-barf-and-get-it-over kind of way.

Transfer planned for January 19. 

By then I will be A Thin Mint: impervious to the pain of a failed FET.




Talent.  There are some talented mother fuckers out there.

Thank you Pumpkin.

  3. You are such a lovely person. I adore you. I'd send you cookies again in a second--and will, should the occasion present itself. I'm sorry about the yuck-tummy. And January 19--that's a mere Christmas away! Thank you so much for singlehandedly warm-fuzzying my day. Livelivelove--a love millefeuille, if you will. ;)

  4. That was supposed to say "Lovelovelove," of course, but I noticed the mistake after Blogger had already sunk its claws in. But while you're at it? Livelivelove as well--can't hurt. <3

  5. I know *I* love Pumpkin. I wish these were cookies of love and celebration, but hey, at least you've got a fool-proof plan for the future. Mad love your way.

    Unfortunately I cannot see the video though...

  10. I love pumpkin too. And you. And while I'm glad she sent you the yummies, I'm sorry she had to.

    And I'm loving all the videos like that circulating. The fertility-lympics. Can't women stop competing on SOMETHING for once????

  11. What a pumpkin blessing. My thoughts are with you and hoping that you are feeling better. I find that there's very few things that a cookie can't make you feel a bit better about. January is just a short hop.

    Good luck with your FET!

  13. What a nice thing Pumpkin did for you. I am sure those cookies brightened up your dark day. I hate that you are in this place of grief, I so hope this next FET is it.

  17. That video was hilarious.
    Now i'm going to go do my downward facing dog on a bed of cactus, and wish I had pumpkin cookies.

    January 19th is 100 years away. But I'll be here waiting. <3

  18. Hey Roccie,

    Just gave you the Cherry on Top Award. Link back to my blog to pick it up. :-D

  19. Funny video-- and cookies of love? Priceless.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Tee-hee, it appears that you and I each got the Cherry on Top Award from two people today! Y'know what that means? Automatic baby! It's in the rule book; check for yourself.

  21. Those look like some seriously good cookies. I'd have inhaled them in one sitting. And that video made me laugh myself silly. Thank you. Whoever made it is genius.

    January 19. That's a good amount of time to treat yourself right, have a festive cocktail (or two), and get your mojo on. And when it rolls around, the good wishes of all we who love Roccie will be coming at you. That's got to mean something in the hands the universe deals.

  22. Hey Baby Girl, why oh why am I missing your blog posts?! You better lose that negative ass attitude or I'm going to find you out in the 'burbs and mess you up. I don't care if you're pregnant, I'll still do it. Girl, I'm hoping with all of my heart and soul that this FET works for you. Bucketloads of love to you. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

  23. I can't believe you left ONE cookie behind. HOw do you do that? I dont ever have the willpower to leave 1. If there is anything less than 5 left behind I think, well I may as well get this cleaned up good and proper....

    Of course I wish you didnt have to gear yourself up for another FET because I just wish my Roccie was off googling first trimester pregnancy symptoms instead... BUT this is the next best alternative and January 19 is going to be here so fast.

    Ba ha ha ha haaaaa! That video is first class. So true. And funny.

    Hope the Crazy Meds are treating you just fine.
    Love,
    Maddy

  27. That video could only have been written by an infertile. It made me smile.

    Thinking of you as you bravely stride through this painful holiday season.
