My Retirement from Bowling and Other Weekend Happenings

I have to say that I am loving my new online friends. You guys make me smile. And you give me hope. You make me feel stronger. I am thankful for all of you. I can’t believe how many people I am rooting for, or sad for or just thinking and wondering about, in such a short period of time. Am I wierd or does anyone else feel that way? Anyway, talking to all of you is such a pleasant suprise for me. I started my blog with the intention of blah-ing out my feelings to get them off my chest. I figured I’d get a few views here and there. I supposed that I might connect with a person or two. I had no idea that I’d find such support. So thank you…

Let’s see. What went on over the weekend?

1) Friday night @ a friend’s house. Husband and his buddies played pool, while a friend and I (sadly both a bit cranky) sat and bitched about our weeks. It was nice. Sometimes you just gotta bitch and its nice when you meet up with a friend who just has to bitch too. =)

2) Saturday, a 1st birthday party. It was a lot of fun but it was also a bit sad for me. Several of the little ones there were conceived LONG after I started trying, including the birthday boy. But I see these babies frequently and I was okay with it. I was fine with it until the token pregnant girl at the party showed up. And then I just layed out a blanket on the grass, plopped myself down and took a nice little nap in the shade. Thats the nice thing about parties at parks, you CAN lay down on a blanket, because you’re not the only one doing it. It doesn’t seem at all wierd. Luckily we weren’t at, like, Chuck E Cheese or something. I cried on the way home. Friends over in the evening and a couple of glasses of wine. I secretly wanted to go to bed but still, it was nice seeing friends.

3) Sunday, laid in bed until 10am with husband and then bowling with the fam and a couple of friends. I can honestly say that I began and ended my bowling career with one game. I guess I enjoy bowling alley food and drinks much more than the actually playing…Hung with the neighbors in the afternoon. Seriously unhealthy dinner of frozen french fries smothered in home made chili WITH GROUND BEEF! EEEK! In bed by 7:30.

Ok, you may or may not have caught on to the fact that I have been either sleeping, or wanting to sleep quite a bit. As in, its all I think about. Yesterday was the absolute worst, as I bought a new pillow after we went bowling. That pillowed called to me all day, like nothing has ever called to me before. I think its a side effect of the new medication. While it is helping tremendously, I am tired a lot of the time. I can hardly stay up past 8pm. Some nights, like last night, I only  made it until 7:30. When I do stay up, 10pm is my absolute limit. I’m hoping that this is a side effect that lets up and will eventually go away. Anyone with any ideas on that?

Allright well I’m off to call the dentist and have this bite problem fixed before my jaw officially breaks!

  1. I feel exactly the same way. I started my blog almost a year ago, not expecting much of anything, and now I count some of my best friends amongst this community. I don’t know how I would have gotten through the last year without it.
    I absolutely HATE kid’s birthday parties. They depress me.
    But it sounds like you had a (tiring) but generally awesome weekend. Good!

  2. I feel the same way too! I didn’t realize until now that you started this blog only a few days before I started mine. Started with the same intentions, and never imagined that I would get to know such awesome folks!

    Sounds like a pretty good weekend. I think I’d have enjoyed Sunday the most.

    Definitely sounds like side effects to me. I did the same thing when I started on methyldopa. I hope you get through with it soon!

  3. I’m loving my online friends too!! Thanks for your support, advice and feedback. It’s nice to know we aren’t alone out there in the big, unfriendly infertility world!

  4. I could not agree more about the online friends! It is the best place to find other IF gals who really understand. Props to you for going to a first birthday party! Not sure I could handle that.
