Happy Bookends

a few weeks ago, my therapist suggested that I “bookend” unpleasant activities with pleasant ones


i think this might be a useful strategy for managing the first two weeks of my ivf

which will likely be filled with early morning blood tests and ultrasounds (up to every other day!)

and lots of sticking myself with needles


so, let’s brainstorm happy activities!

here’s what i’ve got so far

get a haircut


go to my favorite cafe

max caffe in morningside heights

and get a nutella croissant


get a mani/pedi


go see a movie that the husband does not want to see

#sorrynotsorry this movie was GREAT

have breakfast with a friend


take a walk through central park


any other ideas???

    Knitting? Crocheting?? A good book? Maybe Skyping over coffee with a friend who lives in . . . say . . . the Denver area?? It’s not the same as breakfast but it’s something πŸ™‚
