Well there was really no way to type that in the title that mimicked the way it sounded in my head, but it was from "Over the Moon" from RENT...right before Maureen moos. And gets you to moo right along with her. I always do, and proudly!
We booked our flights tonight.
As in, to Colorado. For the transfer.
I wasn't sure if I should--I've seen ladies get canceled right up at the last minute. But then again--if we waited to book them at the last minute what if there weren't any flights left? I'm so nervous about doing things early--we got a great rate but of course that means if we have to cancel/move things we pay a hefty fee.
A hefty fee. There's a novel concept.
Over at my 'other place' (do ya think anyone could figure me out? I mean, really, what are the odds someone just happened to find this blog and put two and two together? OK really I mean my mother.) I mentioned how much Mr. LastChance and I want to go to NYC at Christmastime this year. Christmas is our most favorite favorite time of the year and anyone who knows me knows I adore NYC.
Because of family issues this year we'll celebrate Christmas before the actual date, which could potentially leave us 'family-less' on the real holidays. What a better place to be than New York?
And let's face it--if things don't work out in November well, we'll need a little something to pick us up. What's a couple of thousand more spent to console ourselves at that point? Of course, if it does work the mighty CC.R.M. doesn't want anyone who is pregnant flying in the first trimester. I really don't get this. Some women work and work involves travel. I don't know--it seems a little over-cautious to me.
I always like to have something to look forward to...the transfer only sorta counts because it's fraught with a lot of crazy emotions...but a trip....ahhhhhh, a trip. That would be nothing but pure pleasure. I mentioned the idea to my Mom and she said "well, you know your finances." She's referring to another costly venture we're involved in (which I promise to share with you, my lovely readers, very very soon!) and doesn't even know about the IVF costs. I wanted to scream: "Yes mother! I do know my finances! I'm 35 years old and have managed to finance 5 IVF cycles out of pocket in 2 years without going into any debt. So yes indeedio--I know my finances." But I didn't. I just nodded at the phone and bit my tongue.
If only I could score one of those credit cards with those awesome 'earn two free airline tickets if you spent 1,000!' Seriously--Amer. Exp. extended that offer to us three different times--we took them up on it, spent the money, earned the tickets, used the tickets, then canceled the cards. And then we'd get another offer! Seriously. But in today's economy I don't think they're being as generous--or else our names are on a 'no more offers' list somewhere.
But I could spend the 1,000 like *that* (snaps finger) on a few multi-celled little beings currently being held in a frosty chamber in Colorado.
At any rate, the tickets for the one trip are bought.
Now we just hope the lining cooperates and doesn't decide to pull a skinny on me and we actually use them.
