This is a picture of us in a sculpture garden in Saugatuck, MI. I think Steve blinked just as the picture was taken.

We went away this past weekend for a couple days. My birthday was yesterday, and I have been feeling so down lately. I didn't want to be home for my b-day. I guess I didn't feel up for much celebrating. So I had asked Steve if we could go somewhere overnight. He booked one night at a hotel not too far from Saugatuck, MI. I ended up adding on an additional night this past week. It worked out well.

I didn't forget our stresses, but it was nice to have something to distract myself a bit.

I go in tomorrow morning for our beta. I'm going to try to get there at 6:30am, so I can be one of the first patients seen. Tomorrow is also my first day back to school -- perfect timing,huh? Nothing like stress upon more stress!

We're going to have them call our house phone with the news. If it's bad news, I don't want to get it and then have to finish working the rest of the day. If it's good news, then we will find out together.

I wish all of this didn't have to be so hard.

Wendy, I'm sorry it's so hard. Planning how we get the news is one of the only things we have control over in all of this. Your plan sounds like a wise one. I'm wishing you luck on your first day back and luck with the beta. I am rooting for you!
