A Drinking Game

The Holidays are here. Blast. 
Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas more than the next person. 
But, the holidays tend to be a constant reminder that another 
year has gone by and my uterus is still empty. 
I decided to create a little drinking game to get through Thanksgiving tomorrow.
Play along. 

Rules: Make sure you have plenty of alcohol on hand before starting.
 Drink = a hefty swig of the adult beverage of your choice, no sipping

  You are headed to your inlaws for the day - take a drink

The first post on your Facebook timeline is a picture of a  friends baby - take a drink

 Each additional baby picture post on Facebook - take a drink

 Every time someone refers to their baby as "little turkey" - take a drink

A family member asks when you are getting pregnant - take 2 drinks

Your sister/brother/cousin/family member has an "announcement" to make - drink a bottle

Every Facebook post referring to a child being who they are thankful for - take 2 drinks

 Your friend you would have shared a due date with had your last cycle worked
posts how she is 37 weeks and ready to have this baby - drink 2 bottles

At dinner when asked what you are thankful for this year you reply; Clomid, Gonal F, progesterone and the cam at your RE's office  - take 4 drinks

You are thankful for your Reproductive Endo and nurses - take 2 drinks

You find yourself in the bathroom with said adult beverage, crying because you swore 
by Thanksgiving this year you would be pregnant -  drink a bottle

Every pregnancy announcement the past year you replied "congrats" instead 
of "i-hate-you-why-you-and-not-me" - take a drink

You are thankful for the online community of friends you have never met but
offer more love and support than most IRL friends - take a drink

 You have to excuse yourself from the table to give yourself an injection -  take a drink

You are in the middle of the 2WW - take a drink

You had to reschedule when you are eating because T.I. fell right in the middle of dinner -  
take a drink

A family member "knows" your pain because they tried for 3 whole months - take 3 drinks

You have to work Black Friday, and you work at a baby store - drink a bottle

A family member gives you their baby so you can "get practice" - take two drinks

You are told: just relax/ get drunk/ it will happen when it's supposed to/take a vacation/
once you stop trying it will happen - take a drink per comment

Aunt SoandSo comments "if it was meant to happen, it would happen" - take 2 drinks

Your dad/FIL/brother/uncle/cousins hands your husband male en.hancement pills and says
"this should get her pregnant" - take 3 drinks

You get home and completely lose it emotionally because another year has gone by - 
drink another bottle

Well friends, by now you should be good and wasted. I know that's my plan for tomorrow.
Don't get me wrong, I have so much to be thankful for this year, and I really am. 
But I'd be lying if I acted like it's not  hard to keep things in perspective when the only thing in the world I want is to be a mom and it still hasn't happened. 

Happy Thanksgiving Friends!

1. I somehow got lucky and my Target still had a good selection of Halloween
stuff, and it was marked 90% off. SCORE!
Three pillows, 2 giant bags of candy, a wall hanging, 2 cupcake mixes,
2 set of cupcake liners, and I know there were a few other things. 
Grand total: $16.00

2. I made a headboard for our bedroom last week. It's just about finished...
as in it just needs to be hung. It was a huge pain in the ass, but I love it! 
(note to self, stop taking on projects with chevron prints)

3. My parents are coming to visit for a few days.
It's a very short visit, but I am so so so so so excited. 

4. I'm going to nanny again. For twins!
I should start at the first of the year. They are 2 weeks old right now.
I'm really excited and the family is awesome. 
They just moved and there are 4 sets of twins on their street. 
I'm thinking I just watch them all for a giant group rate! haha

5. Does anyone watch Revenge? 
I am obsessed. Completely obsessed. 
And, I'm pretty thrilled Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is back. 

6. I bought the most amazing candle yesterday at Market Street.
It's Roasted Espresso and heavenly. If you have a Market Street near you,
get yourself one stat.
