Today was a good day.
I took today off since I have a lot of personal time and vacation days. I had lunch with my sister-in-law and my nephew and got one of my favorite sandwiches: beef briskets with slaw and russian dressing on toasted onion roll. It felt so nice and relaxing with the warm sun on our backs while eating. We walked around a bit. I bought a pair of rainbow socks to add to my sock collection so I can have something fun to wear for my next retrieval.
I didn’t expect the fertilization report phone call to come earlier than 3pm. I was surprised that the nurse actually called at 1:30pm. Out of three eggs, two were mature, and both of them fertilized! Cue sigh of relief! I was anticipating one fertilized egg so I am thrilled to have two! When I got the phone call, I was about to start the car and go to my massage appointment. So I hung up, called Bob, and updated a bunch of my friends.
When I arrived at the spa, I parked on the street as usual. I was about to put coins in the meter and saw that it was free parking for a federal holiday since the spa was on federal grounds. Sweet! No need to rush my appointment.
You know what’s even sweeter? This was a complimentary massage. About two months ago, I had a less than stellar massage from this one particular massage therapist that I hadn’t used before. It was so NOT relaxing and at a few moments she was actually hurting me. My mother gave me money to get a nice massage and I was a bit upset that her money was wasted. This spa often sends out a survey for its services. I was very honest and provided constructive feedback to them about my visit. A week later, the spa manager emailed me to apologize for my disappointment, thanked me for my honesty, and offered to give me a complimentary deep tissue massage.
Today was the day! I booked the lady with whom I had a very good prior experience. She worked on all the problem areas and I didn’t have to tell her once to adjust the pressure. It was very relaxing and healing. All I had to pay was gratuity. 😀
Needless to say, I have had a wonderful Monday and am taking my infertile-no-longer-pregnant friend’s advice to relax. 😉 We’ll see if the embryos decide to become Ivan and Jenny.
