Show and Tell: My Mother Gave me the World

My show and tell this week is a picture my mother gave me when I went to college. It has hung everywhere I lived since then. I have not hung it in this house, yet, but I think it is going to go in my yellow room.

When I left for college, my mother said she wanted to give me the world, and so she did. I really like it, and I think about why she gave it to me whenever I look at it.

My mom is supportive of my IF journey, and I really appreciate her support. Sometimes I do have to be careful about how much I tell her, but I can be mostly open about what I am going through. I recently sent her a link to the Stirrup Queens site because she wanted to know more about the treatment I will be doing. Stirrup Queens is probably one of the best sites I have found for info and support. Who knows, maybe she will stumble onto my blog. She knows I have one, though I am not sure if she has read it. (Just in case she found it...Hi, Mom!)


In other news, I sort of got the day off today. I was scheduled to work, but they had no cases for us to do, so they sent me home on call. I think that is really great, nice bonus to the weekend. So far, so good. I am only on call until 3 PM, so I do not have much time left. My aunt is in town this weekend, and wants to visit with me, so Hubby and I are having dinner with her this evening. I am looking forward to seeing her. It should be a nice time.

I am going up to Reston on the 4th of July for my Grandfather's birthday party. I need to get a present for him at some point this week. I also need to get my eyebrows done. They are looking sort of shaggy. I think I need to stop procrastinating and make an appointment for after work. I could use a pedicure, too. Maybe I should make a to-do list.

I think that is about it out here. Nice to have no news for a change.

That's an awesome gift! I really like that! It is great that you are able to share your IF journey with your mom too. I know I can't and there are lots of others who can't either. Great post!

What a wonderful gift! Your mom seems very thoughtful; great to have her in your corner.

Mine's up, too.

That is a very thoughtful gift. Maybe someday you will be able to pass it on to your son or daughter!

*fingers crossed* ;)
