Weekending: casting workshop and date nights!
Monday, April 25, 2016
This weekend was filled with equal parts work and fun. As a PA I have to get a good amount of continuing education hours each year so I decided to attend a casting workshop about 2 hours from home. Since work was paying for everything including hotel and food, hubs and I decided to make a fun weekend out of it. We headed out of town Friday after work and stopped at our favorite mall for shopping and dinner at the spot we had our very first date. Our meal was amazing as always and I scored some cute pieces from Anthropolgie including this adorable kimono that I'm obsessed with. Because my shots for IVF must be given at the same time each night, I had no choice but to do Friday night's shot in the restaurant bathroom. That was interesting…
Saturday I had to be up early for the workshop. Though it isn't ideal to spend your entire weekend in a continuing ed course, it was actually really fun and informative. Most orthopedic PA's don't do their own casting but I want to put every cast on my patients by myself so it was great learning new techniques and tricks to make the most effective (and aesthetically pleasing) casts! While I was working, hubs met up with some of his former teammates and best friends that live in the area. I was so glad he got to catch up with them!
Saturday night we headed to a different mall for more shopping. I indulged a little too much buttttt I deserved it right?!? ;) We had dinner at the best steak house in the area (hello, my work was paying so I was treating myself to a darn good meal). It was SO yummy and I was in a serious food coma. Then it was back to the hotel for my first night of stims! More on this to come but basically I started 3 shots a night to grow my follicles/ovaries huge. We are really in the thick of IVF and I am equal parts excited and scared shitless (sorry for the language mom).
Sunday was spent at the workshop then driving 2 hours home and prepping for the week ahead. Why do weekends have to fly by?? I'm not ready for Monday!
