Today’s challenge was to barter for something. I had prepared another response to this barter challenge, but was negligent in getting it written up… and then yesterday something happened that was really quite possibly the biggest offer of a barter to the Universe I may have ever offered.
So here goes….
Today I offer you one used IUD. In addition to my used IUD I will provide daily temp readings and diligently record my fertile periods in the hopes of carefully tracking my luteal phase. In return I ask one very small thing. Please do not let me get pregnant any time in the next 8 months. May 1, 2011 sounds good to me. A perfect day to get knocked up. I haven’t really asked a lot of you, Universe. For the most part I try to take responsibility for myself. But for this one small thing…. I know I need you behind me, if you’re out there. Please, forgive me, Uterus, whom I have scraped with creepy copper arms for the last four and a half years. I am giving you almost eight months to get back in fighting shape. I promise I will feed you good food, and probiotics and folic acid and everything you could possibly ask for … if you’ll give me just one more chance. To grow just one more…. but not yet. Please.. ..
