Laying Low

A couple of you have asked when my betas are. Without being too specific, since I have family and friends who read my blog and I really don't want everyone calling me asking about my results, I will say that my betas are coming up. For right now I am trying to just lay low and concentrate on happy, pleasant, positive things.

When I was a little girl I remember having nightmares every once in a while. I would wake up in the middle of the night and run to my parents room in tears. After letting me lay down in their bed with them until I was calmed down my mom would always bring me back to my own bed to fall back asleep. As I tried to fall back to sleep she would rub my back to soothe me and talk about happy things. I remember her saying to me, "think about eating an ice cream cone on a hot summer day". When I was 7-8 years old, that was the best thing to think of, really. I remember smiling as I drifted back to sleep thinking about ice cream cones. Maybe this is why I like ice cream so much as an adult? Anyway, I digress. Whenever I need to think good thoughts I always think about an ice cream cone on a hot summer day.

Today I am thinking of eating an ice cream cone on a hot summer day. Only pleasant, happy thoughts for me.

And if you don't hear from me for a few days, I am just laying low. DH and I will need some time to absorb the news of our beta, regardless of the outcome.

Totally understandable. This is big news and your news. Whenever you are ready, we are ready. I really hope I get to jump up and down with excitement!

Thanks for being so excited about my journey, I've enjoyed your comments. =)

Here for you when you are ready.

I am an icecreamaholic, so I can totally relate to the imagery.

Take care!
