I suppose, in the beginning, she was more sympathetic to this. But, she soon learned that I feel equal disappointment about not getting a promotion as I do about missing the season finale of “Bones” due to a DVR malfunction; or, Duncan not sleeping in bed with us anymore; or, a poorly made egg sandwich; or, maybe the ultimate cause for a crushed spirit, a Patriots loss.
Meredith’s brother and I still do not speak about the 2007 Super Bowl loss that kept us from finishing the season undefeated.
Let me get back on track. I suffered a blow of disappointment this week not because of football or television but because Meredith and I realized we’d needed to reschedule our “Inseminar” at the Fenway Health Center in Boston. We were meant to attend on Thursday night, a time that needed to be spent filling and stacking boxes. The orientation is offered every two months, which means we’ve been anticipating it for two months. But, it also means we don’t have to wait more than two months for another class to be offered. With the craziness of our move and all the house renovations, there really isn’t time for a trip into Boston to talk about baby-making.
So even though I did feel a little twinge of sadness when asking the orientation coordinator about rescheduling, I reminded myself that our plans for getting pregnant haven’t been deterred at all. And there are plenty of other things I can be doing to help us make our decision on a donor. Like shopping for celebrity look-a-likes:
First of all, I want to know who is honestly looking for a donor combo of Keanu Reeves, Taylor Lautner and some kid from “One Tree Hill?” (Micheal Copon)
or choosing someone that looks more like Meredith:
