..Because my day has NOT gotten better. Just when things were looking up I had to go to the doctor to follow up on the mysterious disappearance of my IUD string. Turns out the whole damn thing has been gradually (over the past week) migrating south. So it needed to be removed. And then replaced. I'm sure I don't need to convince anyone how horrible it is to go to the obgyn. Nothing about cold metal down there, or the word SPECULUM is pleasant. But the one thing that can make that experience worse is definitely having an IUD removed and then replaced. Only one word remains. C R A M P. So now I'm eating Ben & Jerry's Mint Chocolate Cookie Ice Cream and watching my son eat a Plout (I'll be posting pictures of this later. So cute.) And contemplating digging a hole and climbing in with my pint of ice cream and my spoon.
