Mountain Reverts To Molehill

Smell that?
It's Christmas. Sneaking into our lives and wallets! This is our first Christmas in our new home. We built a house with a big front window. During construction I vividly recall thinking "Won't a Christmas tree look tree-mendous in that window!" And now I get to see if my vision was correct. I do love Christmas! I was sifting through our decorations and I found a tiny doll, dressed in a miniscule white rose embroidered dress. My mother gave me this doll in December 2003. A fortune teller had told her that my infertility woes could be cured if I placed a small doll in the right hand side of my loungeroom. Talk about specific. It was worth a shot. Clomid and sex weren't helping! Back then the hand side of my loungeroom was occupied by a Christmas tree so it seemed fitting to perch her atop a fake fir branch. Near an angel and a silver baubel. That little plastic gargoyle. My infertility woes did not abate. Nay. They quadrupuled. Now in 2005, without fallopian tubes I knew the fortune teller was on crack but, dolly got herself a low ranking branch to see out Christmas in the big window this year. Call me sentimental. Or just mental. Fa-la-la-la-la.

My first FSH results came back. Shazam! Down from 13 to a ravishing 7.9! Me Likes! This is great news & I was not particularly confident of receiving it. A surprise that made me leap, not weep. Maybe dolly was making up for her foolhardy promise?

Thank you for your kind words on my last post. I printed up all your messages and passed them onto Sammy. She was touched. Beyond good grammar. "I bawled my guts out" Sammy said after reading them. Then she recited one of our favourite little love tokens, "I love you all the much and even more and then some".
She clearly digs me, and you lot too.

Hi Mony! Thanks for the comment you left on my site - we could be twins! Thanks for adding me to your blogroll. That's really something I should get around to adding to my site... you know if I wasn't so busy with all the procrastination and stuff....

I can't wait to see some pics of that window with the tree in it.
7.9...not too shabby.

Everything is going well, but I'm totally absorbed by some real estate drama that's happening to us and the nausea was really getting to me this week. I'll write soon, no worries! Thanks for checking :-)

That's a great FSH level, and I hope it's the beginning of your good luck. :-)

Good one dolly! Now keep coming up with the good stuff or next year you'll be getting a view of the floor.

Yeah those fertility symbols suck! My fertility doll sits in the corner gathering dust. I was supposed to carry her around and rub her pregnant tummy. There's only so much of that you can do without feeling slightly freaky!!
