. . . and that's where we were staying when we lost Ethan.
My parents are going away until Monday (some destination wedding). My twin brothers are only 16 and are irresponsible - they need to be micromanaged. So DH and I will be staying with them, at my parents house. We've done it hundreds of times.
But the last time we stayed here, it was because we lost Ethan and I needed to be taken care of.
I didn't realize that would upset me until I got here. And tonight, because my parents don't leave until 4AM, we are staying in THE SAME ROOM we stayed in last time, and I am SOOO depressed.
Since my parents have actually left, we are staying in their room and hanging in their study, and there are less memories there. Even though the room we stayed in last night is nice and has a queen size bed, I think when I stay over at Christmas I stay in one of the twin beds in the spare bedroom upstairs!
lol Jenn. Yeah, I guess TTC at your fols' house could seem weird.
I have negative, negative thingzs associated with OUR bedroom and my husband had to suffer on the sofabed from the time we had Roald in November...Until just last weekend! We bought a used dresser set for me, redecorated the room and changed the layout of all the furniture to make it look as different as possible. I like it now...but I would not sleep there or especially hang out in there until he changed it to look different.
So I can imagine how being at your parents' house again could feel like a nightmare.
It was way better last night staying in my parent's bedroom. So I'm glad that the negativity is confined to the guest bedroom (where we stayed) and the kitchen (but only when doing my insulin, because that's where I first treated my diabetes). The rest of the house is fine.
