If You Can't Say Something Nice.....Shut the %$#& Up!

Hope: Hey it’s 13 DPO.

Me: Yeah, so?

Hope: Just wanted to remind you again, in case you forgot.

Me: Yeah, thanks.

Hope: You sure are peeing a lot.

Me: I know, that’s because I have been drinking a lot of water.

Hope: That was kind of weird how you cleaned the entire house before bed this morning. It’s
almost like you are “nesting” or something.

Me: No, I just like a clean house before bed.

Hope: (Snort) Since when?

Me: Touché.

Hope: Hey, what’s with this craving for bologna, tartar sauce and grape juice?

Me: I dunno, sounds normal to me.

Hope: Right. You sure are tired a lot this week.

Me: Duh. I work graves.

Hope: Yeah, maybe. Hey, there is a HPT in the bathroom drawer, why don’t you use it.

Me: No.

Hope: Why not?

Me: Too early.

Hope: Maybe not, you know on the box it says—

Me: I know what it says, cut it out.

Hope: Cut what out? I’m just saying…

Me: I know what you are saying. Look, you need to leave; you are making this really hard on me.

Hope: Oh, you know me, I hang around till I see one line, then I disappear for a couple weeks.

Me: Yes I noticed that…Fine, stay, but for the love of God, shut up.

(Uncomfortable silence)

Hope: That really is an amazing vacuum you have…

Me: It really is isn’t it?

Hope: Especially great if you are pregnant, because it cleans so---


Hope: (Innocently) What?

I am so envious of your vaccum. And I'm not normally an envious person, but jeez. I've been trying to get Matt to buy a new vaccum for like 4 years and still...nada.

Are you charting anywhere? Will you post your chart link? I love to obsess over charts all over the world. I can't get enough of them. Also, would you like my key to the ovusoft software? You download it from ovusoft.com and I'll email you the key. it's really good software. But only if you're using software or want to use software, etc.

Will be crossing everything cross-able that this is it!!!

Best wishes!

You don't know me, I came to your blog through a search of those who listed "infertility" as an interest. *snort* That cracks me up. We seem to have a lot in common. I often hear the conversations that are going on between the people who live on either shoulder, one of them hopeful, the other a negative bitch. Check out my blog and feel free to read and post comments. I'll probably be checking yours out too from now on. We are even neighbors!!

I had the same conversation with her..... Of course with my own variations. She knows an amazing amount of pregnancy symptoms. Even more than I ..which says a whole lot. She is so annoying.

I just wrote a whole post about her because I evicted her from my house because she did not pay rent. I have not posted it yet but I thought I would just warn you that she does not pay her rent on time. She does not make a good tenant.
