Hello Mr. Heating Pad

Well, I was right. My period decided to grace me with its presence today. I know I said in my last post that I wasn't feeling very optimistic about this cycle but I have to admit there was a part of me that was hopeful. It was there in the back of my mind and kept inching it's way forward. 

As luck would have it, I have a fairly busy afternoon and evening lined up. I really hope the Tylenol I took will kick in so these pesky cramps will subside. Right now I am sitting at my desk at work dreaming of my heating pad and the comfy chair in my living room (known to us as "the napping chair" because I tend to take lots of accidental naps while lounging there). I hope I will have a little chance to unwind there between work and my evening obligations. Even just fifteen minutes with that cozy heating pad would suffice. 

Sigh, I guess I should get my head out of the clouds and continue on with my day. I'm also planning a nice sob fest when I finally have a moment to myself. That hopeful part of me is feeling really crappy right now and I want to award her a moment to grieve the loss of another month without a pregnancy. I think she would also like some chocolate...and some wine...and definitely some time with Mr. Heating Pad.


  1. Awwww Ann, this blows. Sucky sucky sucky May.

  2. She deserves that chocolate and wine! Hugs.

  3. Have a good sob, I had one last night and I feel much better. The wine and chocolate wont hurt either!

    1. You know I never actually got around to my sob feat last night. I had a volunteer meeting that ran quite late and then I went out for ice cream with a friend (yes, there was lots of hot fudge sauce included!) This morning I'm off to watch my niece and nephew, then I have work, followed by evening plans with friends. Once again my busy bee attitude will keep the sobbing at bay. Maybe tomorrow I can crumple in a ball and unwind.

  4. Hopefully you were able to cry with chocolate and wine this weekend. It really does help to get it all out. Thinking of you!
