We decided to beat the heat and thunderstorms last night and go out on a real date to the movies. I can’t remember the last time we actually had a ‘date night’. I picked the newest B.ourne movie. Figured it would be something I wouldn’t have to think about and would be some good escapism. Turns out every other woman to walk into the theater was obviously pregnant. It’s like I was surrounded!! And I know it wasn’t just me because Mr H even mentioned it…and he is largely oblivious to things like that. I was even lucky enough to have someone who had to be 40+ weeks sit next to me. She was rubbing her stomach and wincing at pretty regular intervals and it would have just been fantastic if I could have birthed that baby right there in the theater for her!

Hope you all don’t drown in the sarcasm that is dripping off each word. I having a down day yesterday and my movie trip did not help. At least the movie was good, a few completely impossible to believe scenes but entertaining. Off to a jewelry party this afternoon (think tupperware party but with fun jewelry!). Nothing like shopping to fix a funk!

Another PITA

We got the letter today from our insurance company saying that they won’t approve an IUI with C.lomid and injectibles…they’ll only approve C.lomid. I need to double check our plan but they are saying that do not approve any injectible IUI cycles. Which makes no sense to me. Technically we hit their criteria to be able to go straight to IVF (2+ years trying) which would cost them a lot more money than this little IUI. Since we aren’t going to do the IUI until October we’ve got some time to fight with them. I’m not going to be holding my breath though.

We also got the car tax bill today too. yeah…

Aside from all that we had a great weekend. Met some friends in Georgetown and had a 3 hour lunch in the basement of Pizza P.aradiso. We were there with some beer lovers and they’ve got such an amazing selection of beer on tap. Needless to say neither of us could drive home after lunch. We ended up walking over to D.umbarton Oaks and walking through the gardens. I had never been but it was beautiful! I definitely want to go back there sometime. It was such a peaceful place.

Dinner tonight with the DC Stirrup Queens–I’m so excited about it!

Arg!!! I wondered what I was going to blog about once we decided not to start IF treatments until Oct…turns out I’ve got plenty of other things that annoy me!

I just had to move offices at work. Actually, somehow my promotion meant that I now had to share an office, when for the last 3 years I’ve had my own…not thrilled about that. For some crazy reason I had to change my phone extension. Here’s how I found out about this change. I went into my old office this morning, saw that the v-mail light was on, but my password didn’t work. I walk to my new office, check out the phone…it doesn’t even have my new extension on it. So I’ve got messages, plus all my saved messages, locked in one phone that they’ve cut me off from, but they haven’t told me what my new one is. A few feisty emails later, I get a call from our business manager who says she ordered it yesterday because it had to get done and she just hasn’t gotten around to telling me! WHAT!! How is someone supposed to work like that? I had no way of telling anyone in the outside world how to reach me. So freaking annoying. I love the people I work directly with but our business office drives me freaking crazy!!

Anyway, I can not believe I left someone off my crushmore list. This is a tie for #3 (and it gets pretty embarrassing here). I’ve been watching G.eneral Hospital since I was 3 years old (I asked to stay home from pre-school to watch Luke and Laura’s wedding) so I need Sonny and Jason on my mountain. It really is a need people. Trust me, I’m not proud right now
