And the title is about as joyful as I'm going to get in this post. Don't say I didn't warn you!
Welcome to anyone stumbling upon my blog via ICLW. In brief summary about me, I am a 29-year-old graphic designer (wannabe chef and entrepreneur) who is happily married to my best friend, Buster. We have been trying to conceive since 2007. We have never been even semi-successful. I have been diagnosed with the dreaded "unexplained infertility". Buster's boys are in great shape, so it is likely that the "problem" lies within me. Oh, joy! (There's some joy for ya!)
2010 has not been our year. Really, it was just ok. Another year of failed cycles and BFN's for me, while Buster got his Electrician's license and was on the hunt for a job. Apparently a good job is hard to find! But then, in the first week of November, our luck changed. Buster got a call from a great local employer. He had been applying at this place for 10 years. He was hired, and things were really looking up.
Fast-forward to last week. Buster gets called in to HR and questioned regarding my father, his father-in-law. Apparently "immediate family" includes in-laws, which we did not realize. Because my father works at the company, Buster was terminated. A week and a half before Christmas.
So now, we are ready for this shitfuck of a year to be over. In January I will be taking Femara (for the first time) and doing an IUI (for the second time). That is about all I am looking forward to at this point.
And just because the universe wasn't done shitting on us, Buster's car didn't start yesterday. He thinks it is because the battery is too cold, but who knows. We will find out more today.
On Sunday we drove an hour and forty minutes each way to pick up a Golden Retriever pup that we are giving to MIL for Christmas. The puppy, Lulu, is adorable. However, her and Kelsey together are little nightmares! I don't know how people have more than one puppy! I didn't think I would feel this way, but I am so ready for Christmas to get here so we can give the puppy to MIL and regain a little peace and quiet around my house!
