i'm not dead

Just swamped. I sincerely apologize for the lack of comments this week. Between off-site meetings at work and prepping for grad school classes, I'm spent. It's only Wednesday, and my mind and body feel like they do on a Friday evening. In short, I feel dead. Do you forgive me?

Obviously, I haven't had time to post, either. But here's the gist of what's going on:
  • I'm officially in the 2WW. Today is 5 DPO. It feels so weird to type that! My acupuncturist was excited to hear this news, as was my therapist. Both did a little happy dance for me. It was a good feeling. It still is.
  • Classes start on Monday. I am taking two courses: History of Reading and Foundations of the Information Professions. (My program is Library and Information Studies.) At the risk of sounding like a complete nerd, I'm both excited and nervous to start school again. My courses are on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 8 to 10 pm.
  • Joey is feeling much better. He went in for blood work this morning, but his upper GI and ultrasound are still scheduled for next Thursday. The medications and adjustments with his diet seem to help.
  • My neighbor still sucks, and we had to complain about him AGAIN to our HOA. This makes three months, about ten complaints, countless letters, and now three very hefty fines for the homeowner. We are at the point where, if nothing continues to change, we may seek legal representation. There are only so many sleepless nights (and driving to work after those sleepless nights) we can take.
There is one more thing going on that's a little more exciting, but I don't feel comfortable posting it yet. What I can say is that it's good, and it's happening on Friday morning. So if everyone could keep their fingers crossed about this "meeting," I would appreciate it. 

I promise to put up a real post at some point this week and catch up on all of my commenting. Pinky promise.

Very exciting stuff!! Good luck with everything this week! HUGS

Josey said...

Um, you officially are driving me nuts!!! Friday?!! Two whole days we need to wait? Can't wait to hear what it is!

Sucky about your neighbor. :( We're blessed with good ones now, but in the house I lived in for the last 6 years the neighbor BLEW. Good luck with that.

I miss school. I miss learning. I don't especially miss homework, though I suppose that goes hand in hand...

Gald to hear Joey's feeling better - that's awesome!

Last but not least - 5dpo - yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm 10dpo. Here's what I think - I think we should BOTH get our BFPs this cycle so that we can go through this together and commiserate together and meet up when the kiddos are born to tell them both how special they are. Deal?

Glad to hear that you have some positives going on. Between being in the 2WW, Joey feeling better, and your exciting news, it seems like this is a good week for you.

Sorry about your neighbor. That completely stinks!

Good luck at your meeting!

Trisha said...

Many prayers for your "meeting"! Can't wait to hear what it is. I went back to school too (6 years ago) and I felt the same way with being excited and nervous. It was a lot of work but it was so worth it!

waiting for baby said...

Wow! 8-10, that's late, my classes are like 5:30-8:30, and it's hard to keep my yes open! Library information sounds fun! Go ahead get your geek on. It's nice to have something else to occupy your time!

Sitting on edge to hear about your meeting.

Stefanie Blakely said...

So excited about school for you-- I still love shopping for new school supplies, even though I'm not in school.

Can't wait to hear the news on Friday and can't wait for the end of this 2ww!!

That is awesome that you're in your 2ww - I'm keeping my fingers crossed that this is it!!!

It's really exciting to start school up again, hopefully you'll get back in the swing of things soon.

Glad to hear Joey is doing well, I'm curious about what his u/s will reveal.

I cannot believe your neighbor! Hopefully it doesn't come to legal representation - like you need that on your plate too!

Lots of T&P being sent your way for Friday!
