    Oh that's a shame Blizz - I was hoping to catch up - but I can see how busy you were - wow! I'd be really tired too!

    Hi Tarkine - hope the boys weekend is going a bit more smoothly.

    As for me - met my sister's new boyfriend. Very nice man, but a little quiet - then again meeting even half my family is fairly overwhelming.

    My youngest brother has lost so much weight - he is even more handsome now!

    My pregnant SIL and brother were up at my Nan's place having a break so I'll ring them up later tonight.

    I got a bit uncomfortable with everyone in my family being nervous and I disappeared outside for a while. DH didn't get the hint so we were there for a bit longer - which was good because I got to see my other brother and my nephews.

    DH is currently ringing his family while I'm watching 'Dance' and posting (which TBH I'm a little disappointed in - where's the DANCE???)

    Anyway, catch up with you all soon.

    I survived the boys weekend!! We had visits to the casino and plenty of BBQs and not much rabbit food.. sigh.. but I managed through it. We watched some DVDs as well as driving around the sights... it was a good weekend.. of course we had to do the drive everyone elses cars - and i got to drive a BMW MX5 (is that it - the 4wd, 2Tonne tank), which was great until I turned the windscreen wipers on (left hand side) instead of the indicator - then of course I didn't live that one down.

    Will definately join you guys in chat. I've got addicted to Heros (TV show).. Which is the first time in a very long time that I've absolutely had to watch a TV show.

    Our tabby cat is missing all the boy attention - she is such a [email protected] She will smooch anyone (particularly men).. I caught myself out the front the other night saying "Whose a good little tarty girl then" - I really need to watch my mouth - I didn't even look up to see if anyone was around!! ROFLOL!! The neighbours already think I'm mad!!

    Hooray for surviving the boys weekend!

    Hopefully your digestive system can return to normal shortly

    Cool how you got to drive different cars.

    I LOVE Heroes too - can't wait for it to come back on TV.

    My BFM used to call his landlord's cat a lap 'sl&t' - so probably very similar to your cat.

    My cat is extremely moody - sooky one minute and biting you the next - although the biting seems to have settled since we have bought water guns.

    Our neighbours think we're nuts too - so you're in with a good crowd.

    Blizz - excellent catching up with you - I hope you're not too tired now!

    As for me - went back to Mum and Dad's place today.

    And who should be there - my brother and SIL!

    I was perfectly fine - she didn't look that much different, except she was radiantly happy. So another hurdle over.

    I then watched a movie with Mum, Nan and DH - An Amercian in Paris.

    To explain - Dh and I decided about 3 years ago to watch the top 100 movies of all time from the AFI. We are down to the last ten, give or take.

    We bought some using ebay and mum also burned one to DVD from Foxtel.

    Unfortunately our TV was so old that it couldn't cope with the NTSC and burnt DVDs.

    So we decided to go to Mum and Dads to watch it.

    We'll probably go over again next weekend and watch another.

    Not long until we finish now!

    Hi Blizz - thinking of youunder your doona with Paige and your puppy, hiding from the storm.

    Hey Tarkine - you were absolutely correct about the exhaustion - I'll write about it in more detail in my blog!

    I'm popping in to say but will be away until after friday's meeting at the IVF clinic - have purposely planned a busy weekend to keep my mind off things and I'll just go with the flow and try to keep things in perspective (remind me I said this will you)

    :hugs: love to everyone!

    Good luck Tarkine.

    I hope the clinic looks after you as well as DH.

    Hi darling girls,

    Well the meeting this morning went extremely well. Despite the delay for the Rubella injection, it would appear, at this stage, that we can start the drugs in April with EPU in mid may (or something like that). Still have to hear from the FS to get the treatment plan written up. I will be hopping mad if he tries to delay things - as he could have easily done this while in the waiting period.

    Have already nominated DH to do the injections - ex dialysis patient, who always takes his own blood (despite having shaky hands) he will be wonderful at it.

    So just need to sit around and wait for AF now - finally starting to feel a little excited about the process commencing. I had a reiki session last tuesday, and I came away feeling that I had been sitting at the bus station for a very long time and was feeling that the bus would arrive at any minute now, so my journey could continue.

    I'm looking at the IVF, trying to be pragmatic in that if it doesn't work then we will sponsor some young buddhist monks (as our defacto children) and it won't be the end of the world... very difficult to maintain my detachment and at the same time feel a sense of hope and joy and all the emotions that you feel when commencing IVF.

    You girls have been wonderful.. I felt like I went into today's meeting totally prepared - knowing what questions to ask and what needed to be considered along the way. I probably asked 100 dumb questions, but at least I feel very confident that these questions led to a satisfactory answer from the counsellor and a feeling of contentment in me,

    thank you.

    PS hope you all have a great weekend.. love to you all

    yay Tarkine, I am truely happy that things are moving forwards for you I wish you a speedy journey to your BFP!!!!
    Gargy when do you get your test results back???
    as for me putting in a couple of quiet days with DH for the last of my holidays and we start DH's reunion stuff tonight kicking off with a counter meal at one of our local hotels, we are supposedly taking Paige but after the show she put on in town today I am a little aprehensive (due to over tiredness and hunger I think) Paige threw two major tanties lasting about 40mins in total got a disgusted look from a lady sitting at a table next to us at a local bakery but got her home and she is now sleeping peacefully and we will leave her for as long as possible
    feeling fine myself just tired (as always) talk to you all soon lots of love Allie xxxx

    looks like all has been quiet on the home front over the weekend, DH goes back to work tomorrow for night shift, as.....Sob!!...do I!!, shouldn't really complain as I have had 10 days off with having only used 4 annual leave days but I am sooooo tired I really don't think that I have scratched the surface on having a break. Probably because the last part of my weekend was fairly hectic with DH's school reunion stuff I am ready for a week end.
    I will be working till 6:30 this week so probably won't venture on too much as It will take me a bit to get organised but I will keep popping in to see how we are all going,
    talk soon Allie.B xx off to watch CSI

    Hi Tarkine,

    So glad that you are moving on from the station - snaps to you

    So get you on the balancing act between practicality and joy - however your plan to sponser monks sounds really interesting.

    Glad that I have met you online too - hope you had a brilliant weekend!

    Hi Blizz,

    Haven't asked the GP about the test results yet - will do so this week.

    Also - must have either had a gastro virus or having the herbal rememdy straight was a bad move on Tuesday as I have been taking the full herbal dosage from the Natropath over the weekend and there has only been twinges in my tummy. It's similar to how I felt when I first went on the Diabex so not too concerned.

    Hope the reunion went really well!

    I've updated my blog about the weekend - so have a read when you have time!

    Feeling VERY tired but ok - had a talk with the IVF counsellor today. She agreed that I may have some issues with depression at the moment.

    We also resolved a few things - the most important was that she was trying to be just as supportive to me as with DH. I feel better now I have voiced my concerns.

    Anyway, will see the GP about a referral to a counsellor that specialises in depression as well as getting the blood test results.

    Going to bed now - hope everyone is ok.

    that all sounds really positive Gargy, I have been really tired too, working to 6:30 doesn't leave much time or energy for anything else but it is only for the week.
    Feeling a little funky in the tummy tonight, hoping it is just stuff starting to move around in there, so I'm going to have an early night to try and have a good rest hope it eases over night
    (I don't think the niggling doubts I have are going to subside anytime soon having another scan on the 17th of April hopefully that will help me to relax a little)
    Hey Tarkine how's all with you?
    I'll try to pop in wednesday I actually got everything packed for tomorrow and watched NCIS on ten and also managed to cook myself a huge plate of steamed vegies so I'll try and emulate this again so I can be free a bit earlier in the evening it is not helping with the overall tired feeling now that it is getting dark so early (nor is it great for my enthusiasm to go for a walk with Paige and the dog past 6:30 either?????)
