Disclaimers.

For my HUGE audience of readers:
(hopefully my sarcasim has not offended my actual readers, as I love each and every two of you, shit there's that sarcasim again, seriously I do love ALL of you.)

ok now for the real stuff.

Disclaimer ONE: I was thinking about my blog this past weekend when I was in Dallas. I passed a billboard with completely offensive letter spacing. It hit me that being a graphic designer, I'm probably the minority in being offended by letters on a billboard. Not the words, but the s pa ci n g. Suddenly I was aware that I'm writing a blog. I am not a writer. I can't spell. I hate, for some unexplainable reason, to use spell check. I am constantly transposing letters. I worried my words, spelling, punctuation, or simple lack of grasp of the laws of the English language could possibly be offending some of you. (see right there I used 'of' waaaay too many times.) For that, not the 'ofs' but the stuff before, I am truly sorry. Really. I try, I do.

Disclaimer TWO: If you have recieved a TaTa blanket or if you do in the future, know this...I love love love making them. I love love love giving them even more. Yes, sometimes it's hard as I have wanted to sew MY babies blankets for so long...BUT I started sewing them out of love and I will continue. PLEASE don't feel guilty if your baby has one. Loads of love went into every stitch.

All the other disclaimers have evaporated from my brain thanks to the second glass of wine...shit. I know I should have listened to davispigeon's suggestion about typing posts up in Word to post later. argh.

Oh well, those are two pretty big ones. The second one is one I think of often. I've lost one friend because of my journey to have a baby. It's hard because I know I'm not the only one that has lost a friend because of infertility. I read your blogs, I know...but man it sucks. Really bad.

Stay tuned my gorgeous readers.
IVF #3 starts December 1.

Eternal optimist that I am (hah! Bitter sarcasm! Really!!), I prefer to think that I've made some amazing new friends through what started out as a ghastly, lonely journey through the abyss of infertility. For the longest time I only wanted to be friends with gay men and women who were beyond their child bearing years. They were the only people I was fairly certain weren't going to ambush me with "exciting news!!!" Sigh. Sigh. Sigh.

i feel so honored to have a TaTa original. or should I say, H feels honored? either way, it's remarkably lovely and i know a lot of love went into it. though i am still trying to work up some kind of marketing plan for you, i have to say, i am selfishly glad that there are only so many in existence.

ivf #3 = good news! third time's got to be a charm!!

thanks for the update and please do keep them coming. it's lonely when we don't hear from you.

Here's hoping that IVf#3 is the one.

By the way, I have a similar problem to you. I hate bad writing. So I struggle with blogs that have poor grammar and spelling, even though I know that's not the point.

So I can safely point out that yours is not one of those I avoid!

I have a bit of a twitch about bad grammer/spelling since I edit a lot of documents at work. That said, I never stop in the middle of your posts and go "ACK! How could she MISPELL that?" Really. I promise.
Heehee, the wine strikes again. Told ya so.
kiss.
