Need a vacation??

Just schedule an unexpected surgery!

Seriously - I've been talking about needing a vacation for a while now, little did I know that surgery is how I would get one. Don't worry - it's not a big deal. Really!

I have the two children I was meant to have and Lord knows...there is no way that I could manage anymore. I have been taking a birth control shot for 8 years or so and the max is somewhere around 4 or 5 years. The reason the doctors don't want you to stay on it for longer than that is that it can cause osteoporosis.

Well after being forced to go have a bone density scan done, it turns out that i don't have very dense bones. No one can say for sure if it is from the shot or just my genetic makeup. Regardless, the shot is no longer an option for me. The pill...well...let's just say that I am not the best person to have to remember to do something every day. It's almost as if I have this mental block that refuses to take that stupid little pill. Next was the IUD...well my body decided that wasn't going to be an option either. GREAT. Last option...tying my tubes. So tomorrow, I'm going in and getting it taken care of. It's all happened pretty fast because I'm due (yesterday) for my next shot and he doesn't want me to go without birth control (probably a good idea).

So, I get a vacation for the rest of the week. Woo Hoo. Yeah me. Now...must figure out how to make the dog be quiet during the day...

OK, back to work for now - I have a lot that needs to get done before I go on a cruise later this week...well, that's what I'm going to tell myself is happening anyway. :)
