The Afternoon is Looking a Bit Lighter.

I think this weekend was a culmination of things.

I am so happy for my friend Jenn for getting her 'egg roll' after 20 cycles. But as with any +, it too is bittersweet. I am now the only one left of the bat girls who has not had that blessed + under happy circumstances. Unfortunately, Jewels had had to hop back in my boat but I hope she gets to hop out again really soon.

Top that off with two weddings and one of the most childish fights; it made for a very bad, bad weekend.

Things will calm down but I can't say that I will not be a heck of a lot more gun shy over making any plans. The situation would have have worked out just fine but I must admit I was not going back down this weekend. I dug my heals in a little too hard and maybe overreacted some but I proved a point to myself and that is all that matters.

What I have learned from this weekend: Passion over something can be great or it can be foolish. It is how we choose our battles that is the most important; we need to decide what in life is worth the fight. Should every little bump in life be a capital jury trial or are we willing to let some of them just go into arbitration?

I'm sorry your weekend was bad. I think you point out a very thought provoking take home from it all though. I hope this 2ww passes quickly, preferably with a happy ending.

I am sorry you are feeling bad right now. I hope it gets better soon. Letting go of things sounds so easy and so wonderful, but it is really very difficult. Letting go of things is one of the most difficult things I ever do.

I definitely thought about that. I'm so sorry. Here's hoping your 2ww isn't killing you.

[[[hugs]]] Thank you for the shout out & I am sorry about the bittersweet. I still (always) keep you in my heart & thoughts that you will get that blessed + soon.

I'm sorry it was a rough weekend- it's a shame when Monday's are a relief! I hope things start looking a lot brighter soon!

hey, what about me? I'm not pregnant.

I know I haven't been around lately and technically I'm not a "batcave" girl anymore...but still, I have "empty womb" syndrome too.
