Roast the Pig! Bring on the Year of the Rat!

video
Little Miss Positive and I were right on the same page today. It's all about renewal. Ring in the lunar new year and be gone you rotten year of the pig. That's right. "Abidia Abidia Abidia, Th Th Thats All Folks!" Now don't get me wrong, I am in fact born in the pig year (1971) so last year I was elated with the thought of giving birth in 2007. How full circle that would be - the red fire pig year being the auspicious year for child-bearing. Well, I missed that boat. 

But then Little Miss Positive reminded me that perhaps that was the wrong boat to begin with. The pig year was one of general misery and frustration for me. So Little Miss Positive said, "Book 'Em, Dano!" See ya in 2019 porker. Now the year of the rat brings change. Starting off my next IVF in this new lunar year feels good. So we spent the day getting to know our little rat friends and celebrating a great new zodiac cycle. The pig being the last of the 12 animals, we are now back to the beginning with the rat. It's truly a fresh start.

To quote from the wonders of the internet: "A Rat Year is a time of hard work, activity, and renewal. This is a good year to begin a new job, get married, launch a product or make a fresh start"; "Babies born under this sign are intelligent and hard working. They are intelligent, curious, sociable born leaders who do well in any group, but value ties with family and close friends more than social contacts."

So Little Miss Positive and I had a good adventure today, in fact a great one. We were reminded of all the potential good change there is out there in this world. All of us IVFers will continue to work hard and should expect new beginnings. So I wish you all a very Happy Lunar New Year!

Stay tuned for more adventures of Little Miss Positive. Posted weekly here on Channel IVF, The Art of Being Infertile.
