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.

Here for you when you are ready.

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

Take care!
