9DPO - 3-day weekend!

I love 3-day weekends! I really hate Mondays so having one off is tremendous for me. I just wish this afternoon would move a little quicker. I'm not going to complain too much since we do have a 3-day weekend ahead of us. The schools around here and most other business (including BJ's) are open Monday so it's like having a regular weekday off. The roads will be empty of people that normally get a 3-day weekend leaving me plenty of room to run a bunch of "me" errands! Yay! Did I mention how much I love 3-day weekends?

Our contractor will be able to tell us in about a week and a half what our "delivery" date will be. I can't believe it! And he's very confident that it will be before Christmas. Holy moly...can you imagine trying to move just before Christmas? In order to help me get myself in the holiday mode, I like to decorate the house and put up the tree no later than the first weekend in December...usually Thanksgiving weekend. Yes, I'm one of those. I LIVE for holiday decorating. So this means I am going to be on pins and needles waiting to hear that date. We don't want to spend Christmas in the rental, however, I also don't want to move right before Christmas, either. That means no decorating the rental (because I'm not doing it to just take it right back down and put it up somewhere else), trying to pack and move and hide presents and figure out where furniture and tables are going to go and getting everything put away as quickly as possible so that I can make our new house feel like a home in time for Christmas. Whew! That is going to be a task. I'm not going to complain about getting in the house sooner than we planned, but it's just sort of bad timing. I guess I am complaining a bit...

As all of the Infertile community knows...IF puts your life on hold. Our entire Summer was run by our IVF. That meant no real vacation. Shoot, our Spring was run by our IUI's so we didn't even really do anything during that time, either. We have decided that we think we are going to take the Little Guy to Disney World/Universal Studios in February. We will not be doing any treatments, however...as we all know I will probably be in the 2ww and scared to death to ride anything. I know it's far away on the calendar, but I know how things work out. I'm trying not to think about it and I haven't worked it out on the calendar yet so I might be getting worked up for nothing. I will either be in the 2ww or I will miraculously get knocked up before we go. I am an avid roller coaster rider. BJ is not. The Little Guy is just now getting brave about them and tall enough. We took a trip 2 years ago to Busch Gardens. It killed me because I couldn't ride NOT 1 ROLLER COASTER. I might go into convulsions if I can't ride any at Disney World or Universal. I have never been there and I want to do as much as possible while I am there. Wish me luck...you have not heard the last of this.

I contacted my nurse and she said that there is a trial coming up in January or February (see what I mean about timing?) and that she would keep me in mind for it. I know that these things have strict rules and criteria to meet so we will see if it's even a possibility for us. She wishes us the best and to contact her any time. I thought that was very nice of her.

I'm not having any symptoms of anything right now. I figure if we got lucky that I should start to notice something early next week. I would be super thrilled to move into that house and KNOW that we are going to be able to turn that bedroom #4 into a nursery. Wishful thinking, but I can't help it.

I hope all of you out there have a wonderful weekend. If you are not off on Monday, I'm sorry. And if you are...enjoy!

Enjoy a Monday off -- I'm with you and love having a day to myself when everyone else is working. Unfortunately, I'll be at my desk!

Wait, What? said...

Moving around Christmas does sound tough. It's already a busy time of year. I'm glad to hear you wait at least until after Thanksgiving to put up decorations - around here people start right after Halloween!!
A Disney World vacation sounds like fun :). There are only a couple "fast" rollercoasters there - the rest are pretty kid-friendly, so you'd probably be okay riding most of them. Of course, I haven't been in a loooooong time...

Oh, I LOVE holiday decorating too! I have some fall lights that I'll break out to tide me over until Thankgiving! :)

I'm so happy your nurse might have a trial for you! Though I hope you wind up not even needing it...

And btw - I have an award for you at my blog!
