Piano Hamster, Pageant Fail and Pure Inspiration

To the untrained human, trying to get pregnant simply involves gettin’busy, knockin’ boots, makin’ bacon, the lust and thrust, the bump and grind, havin’ a bedroom rodeo, some hanky panky, gettin’ lucky, a roll in the hay, a good old fashioned shag…..

……but for those of us in the infertility trenches, we know getting pregnant means trying to hone your body into a perfectly balanced eco-system of hormones and chemicals you never knew you had while aligning the planets during a mystical creatures convention where a unicorn nods approvingly at you and The Cubs win The World Series.

It can be daunting.

For me, it boils down to having a constant stream of distractions, shiny objects and things to occupy my brain.  I share some here each week.


It’s a hamster.  It’s a hamster eating popcorn.  It’s a hamster eating popcorn on a piano.  And the tune’s stuck in my head.


In honor of last night’s Miss America…..which I only partially watched…..I give you a classic, regrettable, sadly captured on film moment from a Miss Teen 2007


And here’s a beautiful piece on Richie Parker – a guy with a great outlook on life and he’s amazing. Watching this made my day.


Have the best week ever everybody.
