Monkeying around

I learned a few things this weekend...

1. You can't drown out sad thoughts with opera on the car stereo. The Barber of Seville will not push unwanted memories of your baby shower from your brain, no matter how loud you crank the volume.

2. Miraculously, sometimes Clomid gives you a grace period and you have two or three very, very, very happy days in a row. Well, not counting the brief opera fiasco.

3. I can make a monkey in a weekend. And I can fall ridiculously in love with said monkey who I somehow find oddly comforting.

4. I can overlook the tiny flaws in a crocheted monkey but I can't overlook flaws in myself.

5. The monkey is lucky.

hehehe...he is cute!

Might I suggest some sort of loud rock and roll to drown out the memories? My favorite these days is Rob Thomas, "I'm not real anymore...I am an illusion."

I like the sound of "very, very, very happy" even it is only for a few days.

Monkey reminds me a bit of Tigger--is he balancing on his tail? :-)
