What a Monday

I definitely have a case of the Monday’s. (I think that is the 2nd time I’ve quoted this movie in the same week…please tell me you all know it)

I woke up at 5 this morning with crazy night sweats (not sure if that’s considered morning sweats). And I usually get those the day before AF shows up so of course I wasn’t able to go back to sleep. I laid there thinking about every single thing I’d done over the last 2 weeks and ever little twinge I’ve had.

I managed to fall back asleep after my alarm went off and just went in a little late to work. Get to work and what is the very first thing I do, spill my entire coffee over my desk…and myself. At least my first thought was ‘Save the Laptop!’ but I’m all sticky now and everything else that was on my desk was ruined. Thankfully I had cleaned and organized Friday afternoon, usually my desk is a disaster area. Of course, I was so tired that I splurged for a half-caff this morning and it just got wasted! I’ve got a bunch of meetings that I forgot about and I forgot that Mr H’s friend is crashing with us the next 2 nights. Uggg….

Today is 12dpiui. I managed to stay strong and not test the last 2 mornings. For me, getting AF is somehow easier that seeing those white screens staring back at me. At the same time, after today, I’d really love to pop open a bottle of wine tonight and NOT share it with anyone else. But I won’t, because you never know. (Or I’ll cave and test…and then pop open my bottle). I know I’ll have to test Thursday morning before my beta. I need to know so I can brace myself for the phone call. This is the worst part of the 2ww, I can always make it through the beginning no problem. And this one is even worse since I can’t help but think that it is the first time we’ve had a fighting chance.

To end on a positive, I had a fantastic time at the DC Metro bloggers Cookie Exchange yesterday. Thanks so much for hosting Leah. It was wonderful to see everyone!

    I am sorry about the sweats..anf coffee.. and houseguests.. all sounds not so fantastic. That bottle of wine sounds tempting

  2. JJ replied:

    Here’s hoping that you DO have a fighting chance=)

  3. Jenna replied:

    Oh geesh! This waiting for confirmation is killing me. I’m hoping that it will pay off soon though!

  4. Jen replied:

    Office Space. Monday’s and Bob’s. That is one of my husband’s favorite movies. We get the quote “from the crippled children?” quite a lot. Actually, we get a lot of the quotes quite a lot. Did you know that you can put an unplugged keyboard in the dishwasher after your dog spills an entire can of Dr. Pepper on it? Doesn’t work on laptops though. (And of course it has to be unplugged, there are no plugs in the dishwasher!) I am with you on just waiting instead of staring at the negatives. Plus I kept thinking of how expensive they were when used ALL the time. My fingers are crossed for you.

    sending you hugs after a terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad day. and sending well-wishes for Thursday

    Hated those night sweats!! They happened to me when I was doing Clomid, too. Fingers are crossed for you!!

  7. deanna replied:

    It was so great to meet you (and the other DC girls) yesterday! Thinking of you, and hoping for the best!

  8. Frenchie replied:

    First of all, I’m totally jealous about the cookie get together with the DC gang. I wish I had a gaggle of IFers to get together with out here. Second, OFFICE SPACE of course. And, I often have a case of the Mondays, even when it’s not Monday! :0)Lastly, I hate the evil pee sticks. But here’s hoping you get a surprise from your beta and you actually are knocked up!

  9. watitng for His time replied:

    I hope that you do have a fighting chance. This will be our first cycle of a chance.Heres to your BFP!

  10. Lea Bee replied:

    good luck!

  11. Debby replied:

    I LOVE Office Space!! I’m a little late on this suggestion, but my cure for the case of the Monday’s would be to come home, pop open that wine, and watch Office Space for some good laughs. Fingers still crossed for this cycle!! And I am so impressed with your self-control and not POAS the past 2 days! You are stronger than I.

  12. Yoka replied:

    As long as AF is not here, there is still hope. I will be praying for you and still hold my fingers crossed. And I am really sorry I missed the cookie exchange. Hopefully, I will have a chance to get to know all the D.C. Stirrup Queens soon…

  13. Maria replied:

    Wow, that’s one hell of a Monday.The second week of the 2ww is always my Everest.So cool that all the DC’ers get together. So lonely here in MA.PS- Love Office Space!

  14. LJ replied:

    Good luck sweetie! I missed you on Sunday!

  15. jenna sais quoi replied:

    When AF hasn’t shown up, there’s still hope. Thinking of you, and hoping she doesn’t come and crash the party!

  16. Geohde replied:

    I always react like it’s a super major tragedy if I waste any precious coffee, so how yuk to have lost your java AND have it all over your desk.Good luck with the very last days of your tww.xxJ
