V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N

I gave what will no doubt be the first of many viles of blood this morning. As I was sitting in the waiting room a male co-worker walked in with his sample. He didn't see me and I have to admit that I hid my face a little bit. Besides the fact that I'm not "out" to anyone at work and barely any of my friends, I'm sure the last person he wants to see at 7:00am in the RE's office is his HR rep!

I will be getting on a plane today to go to Iowa. My dad's family is all there and I love going. It's a tiny town and we rent cabins next to the local lake. If M and I could find a way to make a living we would move there in a second. The best part is, there won't be a heat index of 105. Imagine that.

I love that so many people are playing the Google game. Some of the answers are really cracking me up! Everyone take care and I hope to see even more BFPs when I return!

That is too funny about seeing a co-worker at the doc's office! It is such a small, small world (both good and bad). Have a wonderful time in Iowa, and enjoy the break from the Texas heat!!!

I live in fear of running into someone I know at the RE's. Good for you for avoiding contact!

Enjoy your trip! (And glad you dodged the awkward work conversation! One of my biggest fears is running into someone from work at the RE's office!)

I saw a co-worker of sorts at my RE's office the day of IUI. We sorta smiled at each other, then didn't say anything. I live in a big town, for crying out loud! It never occured to me that I would see someone I know at this office.

Have a great vacation!

Have a great vacation! A cabin by the lake sounds just lovely, I'm jealous.

I've had similar experiences with friends and co-workers at the RE office. It's always worse when it's a man, though, because they are typically freaked out about being there in the first place. You were kind to be nonchalant instead of jumping up and squealing, "Hi, Tom! Whatcha doin here?!"
