Good things come to those who wait...

Have you ever seen the email, subject entitled: Why men shouldn't take phone messages? The email opens up to a picture of a note on a fridge that says: Someone from Gyna Colleges called. They said the Pabst Beer is normal. HA! Funny right? Well sometimes I wonder if when we're praying we are actually leaving a message for God's answering service. Maybe my prayers are getting to him but not in the correct order, are being misinterpreted or God's secretary happens to be male? (just kidding boys) I have prayed for the last 30-something months that Aunt Flo please not visit yet she arrives, like clockwork, every 28 days. Then, the one month I pray that she comes on the 28th day and she shows up 2 days late. Such is life...

I will be leaving for Minnesota on June 8th and will be gone until the 17th. If Aunt Flo would have arrived when she was supposed to, we would have been able to start the monitoring (ultrasound) in preparation for insemination on Monday June 4th. The trigger shot (HCG/hormone) would then occur on the 6th or 7th and insemination would occur on the 7th or 8th. Due to her tardiness, we will now have to wait until July's cycle.

On the bright side, I am a little relieved we will be waiting. I know they say flying doesn't necessarily adversely affect an impending pregnancy but, I'd rather not take my chances. Not to mention, my trip to Minnesota isn't with the intention of getting some R&R, kicking my feet up with nothing to do but take in the beautiful Minnesota summer weather. I will be helping with and attending a graduation party for my youngest brother and the wedding of my 2nd youngest brother. I would rather spend the week following insemination in my normal routine, not worrying that my brothers' 2 very important, life impacting days go off without a hitch.

With that being said, perhaps God DID get my message and I'm, once again, misinterpreting his blessings. Hmmm...?

On a side note: I have added a FOLLOW BY EMAIL box to the bottom of this page (scroll all the way to the bottom). Some of you have commented on the web address not working or wanting notification when I have posted a new blog entry. Well now you can get just that. All you have to do is enter your email address and hit SUBMIT. It will take you to another page where you have to enter a few lines of information (nothing more than your name, a login and password). They will then send you a confirmation email with a link to click to confirm. (be sure to check your junk mail to ensure it didn't get dumped there instead of your inbox) Then you're done! You will then receive all new blog entries via email. If you don't want more email sent to your ever expanding inbox, you can also click on Join This Site box to the right of the page. This will enable you to post comments but I don't believe it sends notifications when I post updates.

Thanks for reading!!!
