On a lighter note...

You may remember that I LOVE pop culture (read: trashy) magazines.  Since I was down about my cyst, etc. and dh was traveling this week, I woke up this morning to find these on my nightstand.

To cheer me up, my dh stopped at the airport newsstand at 1:00 a.m. to buy me every tabloid available before dragging his exhausted self home. Now THAT'S love!! (Nevermind that I subscribe to US's the thought).

And this is the conversation we had this morning while perusing them:

DH: So how long has 'Jon and Kate' been on?

Me: Um, I think this is the fifth season. 

DH: And they get paid $75K per every episode?!  

Me: Yep.  And last season there were 41 episodes!

DH: That's about about $3 million dollars!!! (He did the math in his head in about two seconds, so I don't know if it's accurate, but that's what he said).  

Me: I know.  And that's just ONE season!

DH: What?!  She wouldn't touch her bleeding child during a press thing?

Me: Apparently not. Isn't that messed up?

DH: And they're going to talk about all this infidelity crap on the show?

Me: That's what it looked like on the trailer!

DH: (Moving on to a different magazine, and then says earnestly)   

Wait.  Who are the Gosselins?  

Bahahahahaaaa!!!!!  I love my husband.  He is so disarmingly clueless, but brilliant.

That was really sweet of your dh. Mine is the same with pop culture...clueless!

Your DH is so sweet. I am sorry to hear about the return of your cyst. IF is so frustrating. Take care of yourself. x

Your hubby is awesome! I read that J&k+8 one and was gasping the whole time.

I just read your previous post, and I know all about those evil cysts. I had one that kept growing, despite Lupron (which is why I did an antagonist protocol after the canceled cycle). Those little SOB's sure know how to throw a monkey wrench into IVF, don't they? I am thinking cyst-shrinking thoughts for you.

Big hugs!
