It’s funny how a phrase, title or random thought can work in a number of contexts.
For example, upon his return home on Saturday, Bryan plopped himself in front of the TV to check what had been recording. The conversation went as follows:
Him: What in the world are you watching?
Me: What the heck are you talking about?
Him: The XXX Summer Olympics????
Me: *confused look followed by lightbulb moment* The XXX stands for “30th”
Him: Oh. Well that’s stupid, because I totally thought you had 10 hours of some “special” olympics recorded.
Life is always more entertaining when he is around. (Though when he isn’t I’m more inspired to try to be “productive” and still spend as much time on the couch as possible, and so then inspires blog theme changes and my own personalized header thanks to these instructions but I digress….)
Today I received an email with my tentative IVF calendar:
Friday August 10th: mock transfer and hand over all of my money
Monday August 13th: baseline ultrasound leading to
Tuesday August 14th: begin Lupron injections. Time to start shooting up, a phrase I would normally have saved for a reference to “Intervention” but am now using to describe myself.
Thursday August 23: ultrasound and stims injection “lesson”. Additional shooting up to begin August 25th.
Tentatively, egg retrieval scheduled for September 5, but of course that all depends on how my body responds to all the lovely needles.
Here’s to shooting up legal, non hallucinogenic (at least I hope not) drugs and getting this show on the road.

Hahaha, my husband totally thought the same thing when he saw the triple X. Best wishes with your IVF cycle!

Thanks! I has fun making my own header. Feels more personal now.

Thanks for the support on my blog. 🙂 That’s exciting to get your calendar, to know that everything is moving forward. Hope things go well this cycle!! I also love your new header – I just might be sending you an email. I’m like 85% sure I’m going to move to wordpress…something I know nothing about!

Please do! I’m no expert but happy to help where I can! I’m not sure how WordPress compares to blogger but I don’t have any major complaints about WordPress.

Haha, you and your hubs sound cute. Goid luck on your cycle!!!! It was exciting and nerve wracking starting the injections but it will go by fast… And at least you feel like you are “doing something” …. 🙂
August 6, 2012 at 8:55 am
Excited for you! It felt so good to get my calendar and feel like I was moving forward!!! Best wishes to you!!!

I agree that it is far more entertaining to have hubs around but like you, I do get a lot more done! 🙂 Love the new blog look and I’m so excited for you and this calendar of events!
August 6, 2012 at 11:41 pm
Oh my, what kind of “events” would be in the “XXX” Olympics…
Good luck with starting IVF! I’m hopefully going to be getting started with it soon too!

I’m hoping your husband is less of a coward than mine. Mine saw the kit they gave me and said ” I will throw up if I have to do that to you” and walked out of the room.
Its not as awful as it seems. I promise.

Mine won’t even be in town so I’m on my own anyway :). Good thing I’m not scared of needles.

I have talked about shooting up. 🙂 The first time I said it my hubby spit out his drink and said “Do you think that’s actually appropriate?” Yes..yes I do. And it lightens my mood. HA
