Trying to Stay Busy

I kept busy this weekend with outdoor activities. We had my stepchildren come over on Saturday for the day, and as always in the summer, they immediately changed and plunged in our pool. We had invited our friends and their children over as well and all four children loved the pool immensely. It was a beautiful hot day, sun high and bright, not a cloud to taint the blue skies and the water was lovely.

We sat in the backyard, sunning ourselves and watching the children, reading a book, having a drink now and then to cool off, dipping in the water to feel rejuvenated... a lovely day all in all. Hubby started the BBQ for supper and we all sat down to a nice meal.

Later, we dropped the kids home (as did our friends) and the four adults went out to a movie. We'd hope to attend the 9 p.m. showing of "Pirates of the Caribbean" but alas, that one was sold out. So we purchased tickets to the 10 p.m. show and killed time at a nearby restaurant with nibblies and drinks. I gotta tell you though, 10 p.m. START time? Eeesh! I'm old man! Scratch that, I'm obviously decrepit! By the time the (stupid!) commercials, previews, plugs and general nonsense was over, it was almost 10:40 by the time the movie started. Hubby and I enjoyed the film, but we never got home til almost 2 a.m.!! I was exhausted.

Lo and behold though, I was up at 7:30 on Sunday. Is that crazy or what? Anyway, the weekend is over, and so is one week of my 2ww. Thank God. I'm not feeling anything though and all hope is gone for this cycle. I'm just killing time until the haggard wench shows up on my doorstep. Next month, if we go straight to another IUI cycle, I have friends coming from the States to visit for a week and lo and behold, they will be with us right at the moment in my cycle when I'll be going back and forth to the doc's. Ugh. Course then again, the male of the couple has offered to "donate" to the cause as well. Theoretically we could do at-home ICIs to augment our chances. But for now, I'll just bide my time til AF gets here and ruins this month for me.

I'm still keeping up with you all, even if I've been quiet lately. My fingers are crossed for us all.

That sounds like a wonderful weekend! It makes me wish I had a pool :)

I'm sorry you're feeling so down about this cycle. I'm still hopeful for you.

Keeping busy is good and when you make such a nice time of it even better.

Oh I would have fallen asleep during the late movie session, I am old.

Stay away haggard wench !

I can't stay awake for a late movie either! Maybe if we are in the same town at some point, we can catch a matinee!!
