We spent the remainder of transfer day on the couch watching movies about pregnant women. It just seemed like the right thing to do. The RE got delayed in surgery and our transfer was pushed back from 12:30 to 2:30 to 3:30 to 4:30 and at 5:00 it was finally time. Happily, we live close to the office so we were able to take care of things like walking the dog and paying some bills and returning phone calls while we waited. It was also great that neither of us had to get back to work. All of these delays would have been a nightmare of class cancellations and case shuffling in previous transfers. Another "whew". During all of this back and forth, we decided that watching silly baby movies would be the perfect way to spend the evening. It was a good call. Both of these movies are hilarious and it felt good to snuggle together on the couch and laugh and eat gingerbread cookies. Hoping all of that calm and happiness felt welcoming to our two new little possibilities. Hang in there guys!
