Back to Reality

We're home!  
The trip was great, but really...I'm not sure how we ended up in Cabo San Lucas!  It is SO not 'us'.  I had no idea it was the playground for the rich and famous.  Who knew?  Cindy C. was there, George C., Leonardo, etc etc.  I didn't see them, but we were told....
My idea of paradise was getting out on the East Cape road and driving 3 hours up the wild coastline on a dirt road that threatened to crumble off the edges and throw you down the craggy cliff, all while you dodged cows in the 'road' with your economy car that really isn't meant for this road.  Now that's FUN!
We claimed miles of beaches as our own since we didn't see a soul on them and had a great time snorkeling and eating fish tacos on the beach.
The gray whales were out and we could watch them swim by while laying on our bed.  The view was amazing.
We did manage to take a boat out for whale watching and got to see them up close, as well as some dolphins, sea lions, and pelicans.  
It's a very beautiful place and we are so lucky and blessed to have the opportunity/miles/points to take such a wonderful trip.

Now, I'm back to NYC and the drab, cold greyness of it all.  It does makes us consider moving to California...again.

But for now, back to the TTC game.
Next up:  IVF.  I got my protocol today and in one week I start the estrogen patches.
One week.  Wow.  That's fast.  It's beginning again.

You and that Third World Country rock you live under.....you crack me up! I was well-aware that it was the playground of the rich and famous (and I suppose that's why we haven't been there ~ can't afford it!). I thought of you on NY eve. Love ya!

Oh I missed you! The trip sounds great and I can imagine it all now as I sit in my grey cubicle in rainy grew Seattle. Thanks for the visual.
