You could read a birdman book. Just saying.

Corban, has anyone ever told you that you resemble the youngest Stark daughter from GoT?

Recruited reached out.  He has a job that would be a promotion and a 50% raise for me if I get it.  It would involve moving halfway across the country though.

 

Fellow SFs (@MrG, @LawrenceMD, etc) who have taken jobs a long distance away, what advice do you have?  Are there things I should be asking for?  The recruiter told me the job has 100% relocation and a "substantial signing bonus."  Feel free to PM if you prefer.

Starting four years ago, my ex wife and I attempted to increased our chances of having a child through in vitro fertilization. Over the course of a year and a half we did it four times, costing us $33,000 each time with the end result being four pregnancies that terminated at 13 weeks at the longest (once at twelve weeks, then at eight weeks, then at twelve and she was in an auto accident and the baby died, and then at thirteen weeks) and a total of 99 embryos produced. She was a prolific egg producer with each stimulation.

This ended up destroying our marriage and we got a divorce two years ago this month. But we have kept it very amicable and had been friends thereafter. So when February of 2015 we got a notification from the fertility center that we still had two embryos left over in cryogenic storage we had a discussion on what to do with them and decided that we should go to our graves knowing that we tried to the very end, and thus implanted the embryos instead of tossing them or donating them for research. And now, after the 99th embryo took and survived, we have a beautiful baby boy.

We are not getting back together but have been successfully co-parenting with us respectively having him every other night.

It's 4:30 of a long weekend for me and I'm pretty much drunk already. Yay.

Not to make light of this but I have some friends that tried for a long time as well (and a lot of $)  They joked about naming the kid Ken(more), Sam(sung), or Maytag because they spent the money on conception instead of the home/kitchen remodel.

 

Glad you are happy with where you are now and happy for your baby boy.

I hope it's at least a little while before this gets cross-posted to the hibbeldy-jibbeldy thread.
