Turkey Day

Well, I guess everyone is preparing to stuff their faces tomorrow. I read recently that on average people gain 10 pounds during the holiday season. I believe it. Too much enticing good food. We will be going to my mom's for lunch and hubby's parents for dinner. I am getting hungry just thinking about it and I just finished dinner!

I meet with a doctor on December 6th to discuss my surgery. I have to have a special test done probably next week to check out things. Hopefully all will go well from there. Hopefully my fellow lep fan will have some news for us by Christmas. {{HUGS}}

We got some Christmas shopping done today. I am just about finished. I hate going into the stores after Thanksgiving, but I don't have a choice since I am not done yet. :(

Well, I am going to make that sweet pumpkin dip for tomorrow. Hope everyone has a great Turkey Day!

What a performance!

What has a laser show, fake snow, pyrotechnics, as well as some really damn good rock music??? The Transiberian Orchestra that's what!

I was blown away Wednesday night. I wasn't expecting the performance that I got. They gave you your money's worth and more. The first half of the show was Christmas oriented (if you've never heard Christmas in Sarajevo I highly recommend it) then the second half was pure rock. (Including a rendition of Layla by Eric Clapton!) I was kinda hoping they would break out into some PSSOM, but they didn't. Bummer!

The guy that lead the orchestra had his own custom electric violin in the shape of a flying V. How cool is that?? Then he had one where the edges of a violin and the bow glowed in the dark! It was way cool.

They all had real talent. If you have never seen them before, do. You will not be disappointed. Well worth the money.

We are hanging out at home for Thanksgiving. Trying to save some moulah since we are going to be dishing out a pretty penny in January for my surgery. Yes, we've made a final decision about it and we are going for it. I just hope it doesn't take too long. I'm anxious!! Who knows? Maybe me and my fellow lep fan Connie will be doing this together. You never know. (Still keeping my fingers crossed for ya babe).

Have a safe and wonderful weekend everyone!

Just a quick note

My mom's surgery was today and everything went well. She is back at home and resting nicely with the help of Percocet, lol! Thanks to everyone for thinking about her.

Happy hump day!

I need some advice

Okay everyone, I need some advice. My husband and I are seriously thinking about having another baby before I get too old. I'll be 38 in May. My kids are 16 and 13, so there would be a big age gap.

We will have to pay a lot of money to even try, since I had my tubes tied 13 years ago. I would need an operation to untie them essentially (put them back together), then there are no guarantees that it will work. I was very fertile in my 20's, but the older we get the less fertile we are.

Then I'm not sure I am even a candidate for the surgery. Only certain kinds of tubals can be reversed. I have to have a test done first to see if my tubes are still patent.

Insurance will probably not cover any of the tests or surgeries, so we are probably looking at a few grand (7-10,000).

I am really hoping you guys can help me decide on what to do. I know we both want another baby, but are we just being crazy?

Thanks for your help.
