Fortune cookies have odd ways of speaking to you.
Remember New Year's? Sure it did get better, but then it got a whole lot worse.
The other day I got one that told me, "No one can walk backwards into the future."
It was a nice reminder. Very true.
Of course, I was telling my mother how I collect fortune cookie fortunes. I always mean to incorporate them into a piece of art, but never do. Well, she points out two fortunes on the ground. I decide to not pick them up, but my husband makes a mad dash for one. He brings it over to me, and he says, "I think this was meant for you."
It says, "Some people never have anything except ideas. Go do it."
Also very true... always ideas, and never fullfilment. Yet I never give up.
Of course, isn't that the goal of the fortune? Make it work for any potential reader? Make it apply universally to as many people as possible? Oh well. I still like them.
In other news...
I talked to my primary care physician about my diet. He was concerned about my vitamins. A couple bloodtests later, I find out that my Vitamin D is low. Shouldn't have came as much of a surprise I guess... PCOSers, like me, tend to have lower Vitamin D levels. Not to mention the whole vegetarian/lactose intolerant/never goes out in sunlight thing... Darn. I thought my prenatal had it covered. Of course, a Vitamin D defieciency is bad for fertility... so let's just throw that up on my craptastic chalkboard.
Repeat loss consult coming up Monday. I wonder what Dr. BlowsSunshine will say... Probably something annoying optimistic even given the crappy purpose of the entire appointment. I have a feeling I'm going to pay $300 for this (not including the cost of the blood tests), and still get no answers. Hmmmmmmmm.
The husband and I are considering giving seafood a try. Just to see if it helps. If it doesn't, then we can just switch back to not eating any meat ever. I don't know if I can do it though... I really don't. The mere thought of it repulses me. Not to mention, vegetarians who start eating meat typically get sick from it, because their bodies aren't used to digesting it. If we do, it will be all sorts of unpleasant. My husband thinks it will be okay, his exact words, "I might throw up the first time, but eventually it would be okay." Yeah. I am still completely indecisive. In his mind, it's a done deal. In my mind, not only am I flip flopping, my stomach is churning in accordance.
For Show and Tell this Sunday I am going to share photos from my hiking expedition.
Stay tuned for more ramblings; coming to you soon, like, in the near future.
