Triple fast-forward

I wish life were like Tivo. You could triple fast forward through the boring parts. I'm not looking forward to the holidays. I'm not looking foward to anything except getting through the next two months as quickly as possible. If only I could hibernate! Instead, I'm plodding through each day just waiting for it to end so that I can get to the next one. And the one after that. Even though I do enjoy some of the things I do (like visiting a friend down in DC the past couple of days), the fact that I have to wait wait wait is always in the back of my mind.

Did I write this entry and post in on your blog by mistake?
Poor Nico--I know what you mean. At least we get to do nothing together...
I hope the time rushes by for you.

We are going to cycle together, I think. I'm waitin' with you sista. Am DREADING the holidays filled as they will be with symbols of the passing of time and friends with sweet little babies. Where is the time machine?

Yep, I think we all know that life-on-hold feeling, and I am totally with Fisher Queen on how the holidays are doubly cruel. Bad enough that you're counting the days, but baby nieces and nosy relatives and Christmas morning a deux don't help any at all.

Oh, Nico. Blah. I know what you mean. The holidays always suck. Waiting for a cycle is so hard. I hope you are able to find something to do to make it all go faster. Either that, or I wish I had a Tivo-LIFE for you to blip to January. :(

I completely commisserate! Although i am going through all the mock cycles right now, I won't be getting my donor until February. We're actually having to avoid one particular family event because we don't want to be present during all the ooohing and aahing over the pregnant neice. Infertility can be very lonely at times.

BTW! I live in the DC area!

I'm with the "Bah, humbug!" crowd. My husband's family is coming next week for Thanksgiving. Starting then my whole life will be dictated by the needs of other people's children - where we go, what we do, what time, blah, blah, blah. I hate to say it, but I'm happiest once it's all over.

Funny, too, that a lot of us seem to be on hold until after New Year's. Wouldn't it be nice, if we could all meet up in Hawaii or Tahiti or somewhere for the next six weeks and pass the time on the beach? That would make it more dealable for me.

Nico said...

Oh, if only we could! Hawaii for six weeks with people who really get it? I think at least I'll daydream about that when I'm feeling like beating someone up or driving my car into a tree.

I hear you. We are going off by ourselves for T-day and only spending one day with my in-laws for Christmas. Of course, we still haven't figured out what else we're doing and don't have the money for an extended vacation.

Can i come? I know i am new to posting and the blog-therapy, but please include me! I am waiting too! A trip to the tropics, drinking drinks that are legal during the wait, sunning our pin-pricked bellies.
I am thankful for people like all of you that share your journey!
thank you!
