Again with the ketchup!

There are times when I feel like I am constantly behind. I know I have a good excuse, what with traveling to NoVa, and all of that. But I still do not like it.

I finally have a day to catch up on all the stuff I wanted to do over the weekend. I doubt I will get it all done. But I will at least make a dent in my to do list, and hopefully it will be enough to keep me sane. I just finished taking care of personal paperwork, and I am taking a break before I start to put the house back together. All Hubby did this weekend was clean the kitchen and vacuum the floors. I guess that is better than nothing, and I appreciate the fact that he did it. (Hey always encourage hubbies when they do house work. They may be willing to do it again!) But I still am staring at all of the clutter. The sheets on our bed were not changed, and the bathrooms were not clean. Apparently, those are always my jobs, no matter what I did that weekend. Despite the fact that I work full time, and I am the one who gets to deal with all the IF appointments. Oh Yeah, and I traveled to NoVa to deal with my crazy family. I wish he could have cut me more a break. Just this once. But because I did not ask him to do it, he did not. I guess he finds it hard to think for himself. (Soon I will be able to let this go. Really. I just needed a rant a bit about it here.)

I am trying to get up the gumption to call my RE in Richmond. Murgdan over at Conceive This! wrote about being too chicken to call her RE. It really resonated with me. I think because I have been putting it off, too. I can make all sorts of excuses, but the bottom line is that I think I am freaked about about doing IVF. Hubby spoke with his dad the other night. Apparently he is willing to pay for IVF. (The full $20,000 for the shared risk program!) That excuse is gone. I could use my schedule as an excuse to put it off another week. I should get my schedule for February next week, though. So that excuse will be gone soon. I will likely need to coordinate any appointment I have with my days off, so knowing my schedule is important. I am also in the middle of an IUI cycle. So I guess there is not really any hurry. On the other hand, I do not want to put it off too long because I am getting older.

All right, I hereby resolve to call my Richmond RE by the end of January. I am more likely to make an appointment I can keep if I wait until next week. Who else is with me? I know there are others out there who are nervous about it. As you make your appointments, I would love to know that you have done it.

That's great news about IVF, should you need it. I TOTALLY hear you about wanting to put off the calls to the dr.'s office. I know we're going to need Clo.mid next cycle, but I haven't called.

Followed you back from The Young and Infertile...

I am impressed that you husband will clean the kitchen and husband will vacuum only on serious request, and only if he recognizes how overwhelmed I am at a given time.

I am also in VA and wondering which RE in Richmond you used. Found out this weekend that IVF is much closer than I was thinking/hoping.
