It's safe to say that Spring has must definitely sprung... at least around here anyway. Rumor has it that the high was dangerously close to 90 degrees yesterday, which sort of makes me want to throw up. Last I checked, we've only made it to March, and if I am calculating temperature variances correctly (who says that?), then it should be somewhere around 120 degrees in August (I just made that up) (But it's still a terrifying thought, isn't it?).
Anyway, let's focus on happier thoughts- flowers! In particular, this pretty arrangement that Brian brought to me at work last week:
While I certainly still credit him for giving me the flowers, in the interest of full disclosure, I should let you know that they were leftover centerpieces from a work luncheon he attended. Still, they are pretty and it was thoughtful of him to bring them to me. So props to him!
And while we're on the topic of things sitting on my desk at work, you all might be
slightly disturbed amused to see what else is keeping me company throughout the week:
The somewhat frightening bendy robot woman with the headset and spider hands has been there for a couple of years. The creepy (naked) babies are a recent addition.
My office always receives a lot of king cakes during Mardi Gras season, and as tradition dictates, they always come with a baby. Unfortunately, I was not lucky enough to eat the piece with the baby in it for either of the two cakes I sampled. However, you all probably won't be surprised to learn that a lot of my co-workers are aware of the fact that I am sub-fertile (and probably know far too much about my ovaries), and as a result, the two babies pictured above were gifted to me in hopes that a real baby would follow.
So if this scene is a sign of things to come, then I should expect the following any day now:
1. Twin babies (very obviously fraternal), one of which has inherited my pasty white skin
2. Blue skin and hair
3. A stalker in the form of a cupcake that wears glasses
So there you have it. Speaking of babies, my hysteroscopy has been scheduled. Sadly, there was no availability this week, so I won't be going in until Wednesday, the 4th. As of right now, the procedure is booked for 11 am. Ugh. Thankfully the nurse said the time is not set in stone and will hopefully be bumped up earlier in the morning. Fingers crossed that this happens, or else I will be going out for a DQ blizzard at 11:59 pm the night before.
By the way, I'm thinking of arranging a live stream of the procedure for my readers and calling it UteTube. With a name like that, it's guaranteed to go viral, don't you think?
Have a great week, and feel free to share what's sitting on your desk at the moment!
PS- Happy birthday to my brother-in-law, Wade (the other half of the blogivers)!
