April Fools, Positive Day and All Things Inbetween

CD 20 - 3 DPO

I had a nice little post planned for Friday but things just got busy and I ran out of time to finish it. So just pretend that today is April Fools Day for this first part.....

We had a few cute little pranks at work today but I am not a big prankster so I did not plan or try anything. Boring, I know! But I can say this, I am myself an April Fool's joke (AFJ). You see my parents were only married about a year when my Dad called up his mother in law to tell her that my Mom was knocked up. She freaked out about how soon it was and did they have the money and would they be ok...etc. Well then he clued her in that it was just an AFJ. Few laughs later and they just moved on. Then about two weeks later my Mom of course found out that she was indeed expecting. So I am my Dad's AFJ and he has never played another joke again. Oh how I wish that joke would work now.....

Things were pretty interesting on the TV front with new IF stuff. If you watch Grey's Anatomy or Parenthood you know what I am talking about. I must say that while I cried extra hard while watching both of these shows I was so happy to see IF and the struggles on primetime. I hope they do not turn away from these story lines too quickly.

Positive Weekend!

Ok I'll make this short and sweet. Here are a few small things I'm positive about -

1. Today we worked really hard out in the yard to set up flower beds for my grandmother's birthday. She loves flowers and playing in the yard so of course she loved it.

2. I get to back a cake this weekend.

3. My couponing venture is going well so far. I saved over 50% on a trip to Walgreen's this week and got a few other deals. I also got a printer and hopefully I can get it hooked up soon to get even more savings.

4. Work is picking up and I am so glad to have more to do :)

5. I'm already a few days into the 2WW. There is nothing more I can do now but just hope.

And last a quick symptoms note. I'm not sure if it is a side affect from the Clomid or a symptoms but my boobs have been sore as heck since OV!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!


  1. Parenthood was a tear jerker! Sounds like your weekend is off to a great start.. I hope it ends just as wonderful :)

  2. i watched Parenthood initially when it was on, but then stopped for no good reason, I'll have to pick it back up.

    Hope your TWW goes quickly.

  3. I can't wait til Greys is back on here!!
    Hope you have a speedy 2ww (I know that sounds dumb cos you can't make it go any further). I absolutely dying for mine to hurry up and have a result either way so am hoping this week goes fast.
    Good luck...

  4. I didn't do any pranks either. Oh, how I wish the pregnancy AFJ would work, too! Love your positives lists, as always!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! Sore BBs is a great sign!

  5. Love your positives list and I'm a coupon/bargain girl too! Hope the 2WW goes by quickly for both of us! Good luck!

  6. Love the list of positives! I try to find one thing to be grateful for every day. It really helps provide some perspective during this difficult and frustrating process. Best of luck to you!

  7. I cried as well with Parenthood. Both shows have had such a great depiction of what we go through! 2 of my favorites on television right now.

    Good luck with your patience through your 2WW!

  8. Always love your positive list... and hoping that your sore boobs means a positive for you at the end of your 2WW xoxo
