‘The Antidote for Fifty Enemies is One Friend.’

Saturday I headed to Toronto to spend the night with my best girlfriend. She and I have shared a lot over the years, much of which we could use to blackmail one another. She was and still is there for me always. If I needed an ear to listen at 3 am she was the one I’d call, no hesitation. And when she answered that 3 am call never once did I feel like I was bothering her. When she would call me I hope she always felt the same way. Unconditional friendship and love, every girl should be so lucky.

I arrived at K’s just past lunch time with the most uncomfortably full bladder a woman could ever have. I hadn’t stopped to pee because I couldn’t wait to see her. After a mad dash up to the apartment I dropped everything and rushed into the washroom. I couldn’t even take a second to give her a much deserved hug. Finally relieved I hugged her tight and realized how much I miss seeing her everyday. We spent every day together for two years, she was my neighbour, we shared walls, our life stories and gallons of tea into the wee hours of the morning. What I could also share with her was silence. Comfortable silence that did not need to be filled with idle chatter. She came into my life when Sgt. was still a Cpl. and overseas in Bosnia on a UN tour. I was all alone and my wee soldiers were both under 2 years of age. Overwhelmed and exhausted, missing my lover and best-friend she was just what I needed. It’s been years since we moved away from one another. I have come close to having friendships with other women like I have with K but have never felt I could share everything about myself and still be loved warts and all.

K and I spent the afternoon shopping like wild women, catching up on each others live. I dropped a bit of moola on some much needed  desperately needed  just because I have no other items of clothing  irresistible pants and tops and of course could not resist had to have a lovely pair of shoes at Pay*less that were begging me to take them home. We had a nice meal and headed back to her apartment to jump into some cozy jammies and watch the movie Duplex with Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore. I love a movie where I don’t need to think to hard and if I miss 10 minutes of it I have not lost the plot line.


K came with me to my Re appointment this morning. The crazy bloodthirsty vampire was working again,however she refrained from poking me more then once to get what she needed. The ultrasound showed my lining to be at 6.9 today. I guess the ba*by asp*rin is helping. I have one follicle on the right at 10 and one at 12, two follicles on the left at 12 and 13 respectively. Not to shabby. Rx continues to be 50 iu of Pure*gon until I head back to the big city on Tuesday to measure again.

    Not related to the post, but to your “miracle wait”. Have you tried talking to the master of miracles, the Lord Jesus Christ? Whoever came to him, he’d tell them:
    “What would you like me to do for you?”
    “They that call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved”
    “He who camoes to me i shall not turn down”

    Whenever you are in dire need (even if you do not know him) all you need to do is just say:
    “Jesus Christ help me”

Who’s that girl?

Me: 36, army wife and mother of two boys. Hoping for "one more miracle". We have tried the adoption route for almost 7 years and have recently changed directions. We are now down this road travelled by many, IF Blvd. 3 diui's, one BFN, two BFP and two heatbreaking miscarriages later we are at a crossroad ... do we try just one more time? Come along for the ride, be sure to have your tables in the upright position and your seatbelt firmly secured ... it is sure to be a bumpy ride.
