The Red Wench Arrives

Aaaaannnnndddd... bingo. The arrival of the red wench. No, I don't mean Mrs. Claus. All of you in the IF world know exactly to whom I am referring don't you? Yes indeed. She's come to ruin my joy.

All that money this month for meds and donor samples and no luck. I really thought we had a chance. I'm out for this month. And I'm out for next month too; hubby and I will be away during this cycle so unable to do anything. I need a break anyway. We still have two donor samples on ice at the doc's. And I'll take a month away from all my meds and maybe from temping too. The meds I take are not required, and were I not trying to have children, I wouldn't be taking any of them.

Thank you all for your good wishes and hopes though. Knowing you are all there beside me gives me comfort. I know you understand when the tears start to flow.

In the meantime, I thought I'd post a few of those pics of Taffy Lane. The kids really enjoyed it and so did we.

Taffy Lane or Candy Cane Lane?
More candy canes!
Can you imagine the light bill?

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hannukah, etc. to all the folks in blogland. May your holidays be filled with friends, family, laughter and love. But most of all, love. Peace on Earth and goodwill to all.

P.S. I may get a chance to post from the beach in Florida; if not, I'll catch up with you all in the New Year.

I'm so sorry that this cycle didn't work out - that sucks! Have a blessed holiday, and enjoy your time away from the world of IF. We'll be here when you come back!

Oh no, Gil. I'm sorry, friend. IF sucks so freakin' hard. It's not fair.

If you have some rough spots during the holidays, know that your time IS coming.

Here's to that time- in the new year.
