Friday afternoon, Sparky was interviewed by ZDF for the Heute program as an expert in his field. I’m very proud of him. I think it’ll be on sometime this week. I was put in as a background person and hopefully that part will be cut as I was not prepared for such a thing. I won’t go into the part where I totally embarrassed myself by having a feminine problem all over my gorgeous linen pants, walking around in front of the journalist, film crew and Darmstadt and not having a clue nor having a husband that might have let me know such things. Humiliating experience number 1,236,947.
In other somewhat obvious news, still not pregnant. I was going to skip a month and take off for California in August until I checked the airfares. Let’s just say i can pay for the fertility drugs AND a first year of diapers and still have cash left for a new pair of shoes with the money not spent in going to Cali this summer.
I usually pay anywhere from $750-950, round trip, non-stop. Uh, yeah. Has anyone heard of a gas price thing because my tickets went up to $3400 round trip with a layover in either Philly or DC or Atlanta. I am so not doing that. Not the price nor a layover in the US anywhere but Los Angeles because I have to go through customs and re-check my baggage when I touch down stateside and I would rather change in the EU and let them do it.
I miss my family terribly, but I can’t justify the cost.
So we’re purchasing our tickets now for Christmas. They are mildly better, but if I have to sell my blood to get to California in December, I will do it.
So given that I’m not flying to Cali, I’m doing the drugs again. I’ve kinda gotten hooked on giving myself daily injections. I can play out my junkie fantasy except I’m not 94 pounds and I have all my teeth. And even though there have been times I have sworn to give up my eye teeth to be 94 pounds, I wasn’t serious. I like my teeth.
Dude, is it hot and humid where you are? The cats are laid out on the bathroom floor as if they’d been shot. I think they’ve got the right idea.
