It's amazing how quickly a week can go from amazing to questionable to downright heart breaking.
On Tuesday we left at 5am in the morning to drive up to Napa. Our friends were already there with our godson, Bronson. We wined, dined, and had an amazing time. While there we enjoyed (free!) tastings at Chappellet, Opus One, Flora Springs, Schramsburg, Frank Family, Silverado, Paraduxx, Grgich, Alpha Omega, and more.
My overall favorite was Chappellet. Love their reds and whites. Plus we served this at our Boston wedding. Alpha Omega had the most amazing Chardonnay. It tasted like caramel corn! Lastly, Schramsburg was very cool with caves dating back to the 1800's.
Leaving on Friday was not an easy thing to do, especially since Allen had to head off to work Friday night.
While in Napa we got a text from our friend/egg donor "We need to talk when you get back". Hmm.... And on the drive back we get a call from Allen's boss "We need to meet when you get back". Hmm....
Work ended up being a move to another restaurant location. I know I need to be supportive. I know I need to suck it up and be happy he has a great job. I just hate that he works long hours, we don't get 24 hour periods together, and now he'll be working farther from home. I used to pop in all the time to see him but with the new location across town and the addition of crazy LA traffic, "popping in" isn't going to be easy.
We met with our friend/egg donor today. She has been holding back the fact she has some hormonal issues that are now going to prevent her from taking the necessary drugs to donate eggs. She has tears in her eyes while telling us she can't move forward with helping us start a family. I'm holding my tears back as I'm devastated and wondering how we are going to proceed now.
As they say this too shall pass. Its just so frustrating. One minute you're flying high, enjoying your 16 month old godson in one hand, a glass of wine in the other, and dreaming about how this life will be yours soon -- very soon. And the next minute *BAM* your husband's job is moved across town and *BAM* you lose your egg donor.
Ugh. Here's to a happier post next time! In the meantime, some pics of our godson, Bronson!
