Today I was Happy

Today I visited my friend and fellow pg after IF blogger Ava in the city for some lunch and beach time. We had a great time just chatting about marriage, pg after IF, feminism, impending motherhood, and birth. Time flew by and before I knew it we had to say good bye but I wasn't really ready to go home.

So I stopped two exits short of home and took a walk from the Public transportation I had used to get into the city to the park. I bought a new book on the way there and sat in the shade and read, for two hours. For two hours I both read my book and people watched while drinking bottled water.

And when it was time to go home I did so but before I went home I realized it has been over a YEAR since I had a day like today. Sure I have enjoyed the beach, enjoyed friends, enjoyed the park during the last year but enjoyed a park by myself with children running around and be OKAY with it. It has been a long time since I have done that!

So today was a happy day, possibly the first true happy old me day I have had in a really LONG time. I am hopeful for lots more of them, and soon. It would be nice to get to know the old me again, before the mommy me tries to take over in January.

That sounds like my definition of a perfect day. I'm glad you enjoyed yourself. :)

P.S. RE your comment on my blog, all three measurements refer to the same follicle. There's just one, but I get 3D measurements, I guess.
