Hurricane Irene, a BFN

So unless you've been hiding under a rock, you've been bombarded by the news about how Hurricane Irene is going to kill us all in NYC, or at least render us homeless and starving.

But really, in NYC it was a BFN, to borrow an expression...hahaha.

For some proof, check out this picture taken from my window at 9am this morning, the supposed peak of the hurricane.  Does that look dangerous to you?  It's barely raining, humph.

Now of course, no doubt it was pretty bad in other places, so maybe the hysteria was warranted.  But for us, it felt like a lot of build up/excitement/fear, and then....nothing.  Sound familiar?

Okay, I'm sounding a bit bitter these days.  I will admit to indulging in the kind of regret (why didn't we start earlier?) that everyone tells you not to do.  I KNOW it's completely pointless and not productive, but at 3 in the morning, it's impossible not to let those thoughts drift in. 

The good news is that I have a very busy couple of weeks coming up, and will have lots to distract me:
1) Appt with current RE tomorrow to get some closure on last IVF.  Not expecting to get much out of that except copy of my medical record and hopefully a prescription for some progesterone.
2) Appt with new potential RE in NY - a second choice to C.CRM in my mind, but I'm keeping my options open.
3) Trip to the City Clerk's office to apply for a marriage certificate.  In all of the craziness of work and trying to have a baby, we somehow pushed off actually getting married!  I think I have the record for longest engagement, was starting to become a private joke around the office.  So we're finally going to tie the knot, a happy thing...
4) Preparations for our upcoming trip to Venice & Paris!  We've gotten invited to the Venice Film Festival (a long story, for another time) and decided to tack on a few days in Paris afterwards.  I can't wait, will be wonderful and so nice to get out of here and my own head for a while.

And when I'm back, it will only be one week until the appt with C.CRM.  That sounds much more bearable then a MONTH, which is what I'm looking at right now.

At least Hurricane Irene is giving me an excuse to do nothing but lie around watching TV and eating.  Going to join the man on the couch now to snuggle and watch Discovery Channel.

  1. I love your comparison of Irene to TTC! My cousin who lives in NYC was complaining about the same thing on FB. I hope you have a good day relaxing. Your upcoming trip to Venice and Paris sounds wonderful!
