We went on a road trip to visit my family this weekend, and the trip ushered in some little milestones for me and M:
-- I actually managed to give myself my own Lupron shots twice this weekend, once in a moving car! Now, granted, the car was mostly stopped in traffic, but still. For a girl who until a few years ago was deathly afraid of needles, it's a big deal.
-- M has somehow learned to control her bladder. Twice this trip, she told us she needed to go potty, then actually held on (for as much as 6-8 minutes), while we found a place to get off the highway and get to a bathroom. I know that this is both TMI and not really a big deal, but The Boy and I were impressed.
-- M also watched The Little Mermaid for the first time this trip. Also for the second, third, fourth and fifth times. Frankly, the Boy and I both hated the idea of TV in the car, but for a trip that totaled 18 hours (round trip), we were willing to compromise our principles.
That's all for now. As usual, I have a lot of thoughts about the trip, my family and other things, all of which I will attempt to marshal into a coherent post once I've caught up on my sleep a little.
