Welcome to Work is for Suckers. I'm super excited to be participating in International Comment Leaving Week. I started this blog nine years ago, back when I was a law clerk out in New Jersey. The name of the blog was from a joke I had with my BFF Kate. It seemed apropos because I would frequently blog at work. I don't get to blog at work anymore, thus further proving that work is for suckers.
Anyway, I blogged for a couple of years, then stopped, and this year I started again because my husband Jeeves and I are dealing with infertility and miscarriage. It seemed like a good, healthy outlet for me. I do blog about other things, but right now I mostly blog about infertility.
The long version of my infertility story is here. The short version is that we have been trying since May 2012 (I realize that is a drop in the bucket compared to the amount of time some of you have been at this). So far it looks like our only problem is poor morphology. I am in the middle of IUI #4 right now. I had a chemical pregnancy with IUI #1, and I had a missed miscarriage with IUI #3, back in June. It sucked.
Other important things about me. My husband is Jeeves. That is a nickname, not his actual real name - he's not a butler, I swear. We're both lawyers. I don't like being a lawyer, so I got a degree in library science, and I hope to be a law librarian in the not too distant future. We have a fat cat named Abbott. My dad and I are very close. He has stage 4 colon cancer, but he was diagnosed over four years ago, so while it's serious, we've been managing. I read a lot. I basically like everything when it comes to books, but I do tend to read a lot of science fiction, fantasy, YA, and historical fiction. I love television. Most of what I watch is age appropriate, but I will say that Netflix has invented a category for me called "Teen television shows with a strong female lead." I listen to a lot of NPR. And my other hobby is cooking. I love food, I love eating food, I love thinking about food, I love talking about food.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm looking forward to discovering some new blogs.
