Wowie wow wow! You people came out of the woodwork with comments on my last post! Many of you popped over here from Erin's blog after she gave me a shout out, so welcome (!) to any new readers or followers. I promise I don’t normally post about my vagina, or anyone else’s for that matter. And for anyone who doesn’t know Erin, you should definitely check her out, you will love her!
As far as the removal of the IUD goes… I was thinking maybe the fate of the IUD was in your hands, and I was going to say “majority rules!” However, the more I looked at the comments, the more I saw that there was no true consensus. You were split almost evenly into these three groups:
- Have a drink, and yank that puppy out!
- If you think you can do it, then go for it, but I sure wouldn’t!
- You’re crazy, don’t do it!
I was pleased that regardless of your opinion, no one was mean, and there were no anonymous trolls who commented! Whew. I did also get an email from one of my bff’s who emailed an OB/GYN nurse practitioner/midwife to ask for advice for me. Here is the midwife’s response:
“There is no harm and in fact I've had a couple of people do that/ have a partner do it-- but it's kind of hard to grab the strings because they are really fine.”
So, there you have it. I’m sure you’re dying to know what I decided, right? (Probably not.) Well, you’re going to hate me, but I didn’t decide yet. Do you want me to let you know what I decide to do? I’m hoping the title of that post won’t be “Don’t try this at home.”
Since you were all so helpful with this, I thought I’d ask you for your opinion on one more thing. This will be easier, and won’t make you queasy, pinky swear.
We’ve been looking for a sectional couch for, well for forever. Last weekend I finally found exactly what I wanted! It smaller, just 2 pieces, with one end being a chaise. The color is exactly what I wanted, and then I’m going to custom order a small chair, and the couch pillows will coordinate with the chair.
Since Shawn’s opinion is the only one I have (and he doesn’t really count), I thought I’d ask you. Here is the cushion with the fabric draped over it:
I thought we would need to paint the walls, but after we saw the cushion against the wall, we thought it looked pretty good! Here are two of the curtains I’m considering:
So, what do you think? Do you love it? Do you hate it? Do you want to leave me an anonymous comment telling me I have horrible taste?
P.S. If you are new to my blog, I apologize that I haven’t gotten over to check out your blog yet. I promise I will. It has been a crazy week here…everything from my 4 year old actually pooping her pants the same day I had my poop stain to my older daughter’s school getting locked down because there was a crazy guy with a knife running around the neighborhood!
