A long 3 weeks

Today is the first day of three weeks of DH's family visiting. Two different sets are staying with us in our cozy 2 bed/2 bath apartment. Although our apartment is big by NYC standards, about 1,100 square feet, but when there are 5 people + a 70 lbs dog it doesn't seem so roomy. DH's aunt and uncle arrived today and their daughter arrives tomorrow. They are staying through next Tuesday.

Then we have 2 days of no visitors before another cousin and his wife arrive on Thursday. They are both our age and when DH and I lived in the UK we went out with them a few times to dinner and lots of drinks so they will be a lot of fun to have around. They leave on Easter Sunday and the aunt, uncle and cousin come back on the same day for another 3 days.


I am continuing to work on me (see previous post). Last Saturday, I treated myself to a very pricey facial at a spa in my neighborhood. It was the best facial I have ever had. Even today my eye doc complimented me on how nice my skin looked. I will be going back to get another facial in about 6-8 weeks as recommended. Since I was in the pampering mood and I have 3 weeks of relatives visiting... I booked a massage, manicure and pedicure for next Friday (Good Friday). I felt I was justified in spending the extra money since I will not be able to relax at home.

I have not been doing anything IF related except my weekly acupuncture. The new acu place is really nice and I feel really comfortable with them. I expect to be ovulating over Easter weekend and we are going to do au naturalle due to missing the cut off day for trying another IVF cycle at the clinic. We are planning to do another IVF cycle starting at the end of March. Until then, I will probably not be posting much on the IF front.

Good for you for treating yourself! My DH got me a spa package for Christmas, but I'm too chicken to go, as weird as that sounds. I'm so not the girly type. I had a manicure once in my life, on my wedding day!

That facial sounds wonderful. I am in awe of your coping skills with respect to the three weeks of "close family"!
Glad the acupuncture is going well, I pray the au naturalle brings good news and returning to the clinic becomes unnecessary.

Enjoy your much needed break! I am all for as many spa treatments you can get in!!

Facials. Manis. And Pedis. oh my!

How wonderful. And good for you to pamper yourself. Especially with such a demanding "visitor schedule" to keep. Holy moly. I'd go insane.

I have a massage myself tomorrow. I can't wait. (okay, so I get them weekly, but it's still okay to look forward to them, right?)
