A needle in the ....

Do you ever have one of those days that you get up when your alarm goes off, go downstairs and make coffee and then get back into bed for just a minute to cuddle the super cute dog and husband and then all of a sudden you wake up and the clock is telling you it is 8:30. It makes your heart beat in your throat just thinking about it, doesn't it. That was how my day started and I have yet to recover. I did manage to shower, put some semi-matching clothes on, blow dry my hair, add a touch of make-up and still make it to work by 9:10. Other than that, I have got little together.

Add to the chaos that my acupuncturist, who has all of a sudden become everyones acupuncturist, was booked until late next week when I called on Monday. She is really good and focuses on infertility and apparently there is a new batch of ladies all destined to go to acupuncture and get knocked up before me that are currently taking up all the appointments. Me bitter? No, I am just not ready to share and also am a bit determined to do EVERYTHING right for this last IVF so I can not find any reason to play the "what if I..." game when it fails. Sorry for the mini rant - I will continue. Acu lady e-mailed me at 4 asking if I wanted to take her cancellation this evening at 7. I was elated so I picked up dinner on the way home and headed over there all excited and thinking only about me. Little did I remember that I told a certain someone that I would be home this evening if she needed to call after a potential turned to actual stressful appointment. When I called after acu to tell the man I was heading to the gym he mentioned she called and she sounded down. As soon as I got home, I checked out her site and realized why she may be a tad stressed. Please visit dear Alexa and give her a little support - she needs it right now.

Well... I'm glad you got in to see the acupuncturist. Otherwise, I just hope tomorrow's a better day. For everyone.

I hate it when that happens. You wake up looking at the time and your heart rate shoots up and instead of caffeine, you've got adrenaline waking you up. Well at least, you still got your acu appointment.
I do hope Alexa is feeling better.

I hate mornings like that.

I just hate that panic feeling. I had it many times in college when I nearly slept through an early morning exam. Yikes! I don't have it that much anymore. I tend to wake up before the alarm since I am so freaked out about over sleeping.
