Trying to make a baby is supposed to be fun, and for a while it can be. But if you’ve been trying for some time, maybe even years, odds are it’s lost its luster.
What’s worse, the stress of infertility or the specter of a rapidly closing fertility window, plus the constant conversations of why you don’t have kids, can color your entire life. After a while, it’s easy to forget what you used to do for fun or even that you’re still supposed to have fun.
It’s been well over three years since Mr. Fab and I decided to get off the baby train, and let me tell you, it’s been hard to reignite our passion for the fun things in life.
We talked about it recently and realized it’s time to find that fun again. We made a list of things to do around town and we’re checking them off.
So far, we’ve taken a (rather exciting) canoe trip, been back to our favorite museum, and seen Gone With the Wind on the big screen. Here’s our list of what’s to come:
Go to an L.A. Galaxy Game
Play Mahjong at the Skirball Center
Have Dim Sum in Chinatown
Go to the Griffith Observatory
Take a Hop-On-Hop-Off Bus Tour of Hollywood
Go on a day sail
What about you? Are you remembering to have some fun? What’s on your list?
P.S. For those of you who get to be an auntie to nieces, nephews, and children of friends, happy Auntie’s Day for Sunday.
