I'm in a funk. The sunny weather isn't helping it, my cute puppy isn't fixing it, nothing seems to be making me happy right now. I'm dreading finishing my last week of BCP b/c I know i'm going to go back to the doc and still have a friggin' cyst waiting for me. I bought a super hot dress to wear to a friend's wedding in 2 weeks but i feel like returning it and saving the money towards our impending doom of IVF which we will never be able to afford (well we could afford it but my super cheap husband will likely never agree to it). I don't even feel like getting dressed up for the wedding and I feel far from hot enough to even put on such a sweet dress. My dog is acting out. He is tearing up anything he can get his paws on while we are at work. Not furniture (thank goodness) but his puppy training pads, papers, kleenex, toilet paper. It is really freakin' annoying and weird because he only started doing this a few weeks ago. My hubs is fine, but just fine. It's our anniversary coming up and neither one of us has brought up if we are going to do anything. I don't even care. My birthday is next week. Sucks. I am now officially in my 30's. Being just 30 sucked but 31...ugh...its disgusting. I'm super annoyed at work. I can't stand my boss and don't feel like i'm doing a good job. Plus, I have to see Fertile Myrtle everyday! I don't even know what I want right now. I'm just in a funk. Actually, I know exactly what I want...duh!
well, i'm off to walk this little rascal. Atleast its not snowing.
I am a 31 year old teacher with an awesome husband and an amazing Chihuahua pup. We are a happy family right now but we are excited that I am FINALLY pregnant after a year and a half of trying and fertility treatments. I am still nervous (ok...paranoid) that something is going to go wrong. I find this blog a great place to find support and relate to people who are going through similar struggles!
