What a week! It's amazing how much can change in just seven days. Last week at this time, I was hoping to be pregnant and now, I am hoping to for my period to start - still no sign of it.
What a whiner I have been this week. Sure, I probably have justifiable cause for a bit of whining her and there, but I have been boring myself this week with my "poor, pitiful ol' me" attitude. Sure, it kind of sucks that our last IUI didn't work, but a lot of really great things happened this week, and I am thankful for the fact that so many people are working together to make this whole IVF thing come together at such last minute notice.
The latest in the "it's all coming to together" is that I talked to my boss about everything yesterday. She knows all about our issues and has been incredibly supportive in the past. Even so, I was a little concerned that she might not like me taking so much time off during December. I had drawn up a calendar and a proposal for my time off, including asking a colleague to cover for me on the days when I would be truly out of commission. I even rehearsed my speech and then called her. She ended up being relieved because she thought that I was quitting!
Anyway, she couldn't have been more excited for us or more supportive. She told me to do whatever I needed and we would work out the time off/work from home days as needed. I was so thankful for her support and it seems as if this is all truly coming together.
Now, for the weekend!
We are off to Leavenworth, which is a cute little resort town about two hours from our house. It is a "Bavarian Style" village in the mountains and is so pretty at this time of year. A couple of years ago, a lot of wineries opened up tasting rooms in the little town area. I think there are a total of 16. We got a hotel within walking distance and plan to do a lot of wine tasting and have a great dinner. We are going with one of my husband's friends and his girlfriend that we really like. When we planned this weekend, I wasn't sure that I would be able to partake in the wine tasting. Of course, that would have been an easy sacrifice, but since I am not pregnant, there's no reason why I can't wine this weekend instead of the whining that I have been doing!
