The other week I was craving Trix cereal. I decided on the fruity cheerios because I thought it might be less unhealthy. Not too bad. I'll have to check out the chocolate ones. DH would probably love them - his favorite cereal is Cocca Pebbles.
My lunch was alright. Grabbed a quick sandwich out. I'm feeling pretty icky physically but I'm chalking it up to the trigger shot and the follicles. Just a couple more hours of work then home to take a nap :) Although I wonder if anyone would notice if I just slipped under my desk here...
Mimi got me thinking - how did everyone met their DH? Chris and I met our freshman year of college at the campus ministry for Methodists. I attended an all women's college and he attended the State university down the street. We didn't start 'dating' until more than a year later. We started hanging out as friends then we both wanted more but neither one of us could get up the nerve the talk about it. One night that Dec we were hanging out and he was acting so strange. He walks me out to the parking lot of his dorm, leans up against a green pick-up truck and says, "I don't think we can hang out anymore." Broke my heart. I fled out of there. When I got back to my dorm room I IM'd him (isn't technology great?) and asked him why. He said that he was developing feelings for me and didn't want to get hurt. I then asked him if he had ever thought that maybe I felt the same way. Then I said "Ask me out and see." 11 years later, here we are.
Awwww, Jenni that is very sweet story! Here is how I met DH:
My best friend (at the time) and I went out for a diner and this cute guy (DH) took care of our check. I was dating someone at the time so I encouraged my girlfriend to talk to him. She did but it led nowhere. Three months later (not dating anyone) I was early for a job interview so I went to Starbucks to kill some time. While waiting in line someone patted me on the shoulder. I turned around and it was him. We talked for about 30 min, exchanged phone numbers and I left for my interview. He called me later that day to see how my interview went and we made plans to meet for dinner. We have been together since, celebrated our 10th anniversary in August :)
While I was typing this my RE's office called to tell me that my E2 level was 560 today!!!! Woooooooohoooooooooo!!!!!!
I'll write more later tonight or tomorrow when DH is at work. I hate to spend all the time with him on my computer.
Mimi...:yahoo: about great numbers!!!!
That's an incredible story Mimi. 3 months later and he was there? Meant to be indeed! And you mentioned earlier that he has a similar background? What are the odds!!
And those numbers!!!!!!! :yahoo: I'm so overjoyed for you!!! This protocol is the ticket for you. Keep on doing whatever you are doing!
Hey ladies - wow y'all chat a lot! ;) Of course, I haven't been around much either but it's been busy and we've been waiting for IVF since Feb 15....
Now we don't have to wait any longer b/c I got the call this afternoon to set up the IVF treatment!!! I'm so happy we can finally proceed! Anyways, I have a separate post on that if you want to see and comment about it. :)
Mimi - that's a beautiful love story. :) also beautiful are those numbers!!
Nancy - that's a cute story about how you guys got together.
My "how we met" story....DH and I were in the same ballroom dance class. According to him (and a good friend of ours, also in the same class), he looked across the room, saw me, and it was love at first sight....for him. I thought he was a nice guy but didn't really think of dating him or anything, esp when I found out he was 5 years younger than me!! So we just danced in class and stuff, and he then asked me out to the ballroom dance club's year end party. I said yes. All was well until he told me the very next week he had to jam out b/c he had some kind of sailing test and would be out of town. I said, ok whatever. Instead he asked to go to the Opera with him as well as dinner before.
We've been in love for 14 years and married 8.5 years. Been and still is awesome.
I love hearing real life love stories!
DH and I met at the hospital be both worked at. I was a med/surg nurse and he was an ER physician. I had been working at the hospital for 8 months and "knew" him. I was always so scared of him because I was told by other nurses that when he got angry he threw charts. Now I know that when he gets angry at the nurses they deserve it and no, he does not throw charts. I heard his side of that story. Anyways, the hospital has an annual Foundation Ball. The ER nurses were bugging him to go since no docs go to it. He said he'd go but he didn't have a date so they told him to ask me. His wife had just passed away 2 months before so I'm sure he wasn't looking to date yet. I remember when he came up to ask me, all the staff scattered. I could tell he was so nervous. He told me to think about it and call him. I didn't have to think too long about it. I was so nervous to call him. I didn't know if I should call Doctor, Dave, David when I talked to him. We had a great time at the ball. It was a 50's-60's theme. I even rented a dress for it and he went and got his hair styled for it. We hit things off great that night and began dating. We got engaged about 13 months later and married about 5 months after that. In August we'll be celebrating our 5 year anniversary. At the time I was still married but he DID NOT know that. I had been separated from my DH for 6 months but just hadn't filed for divorce since I didn't have the money and at that time there was really nothing making me file. A week after we started dating I filed for divorce. He really was my night in shining armor. He saved me from the bad road I was going down at the time. Idk where I'd if he hadn't come into my life.
Here is a pic of us on our first date. We look so different even though it was only 6 years ago.
Sophia - I commented on your other post, but I just wanted to wish you luck with your cycle. And your love story is great. When its meant to be its meant to be :D
Meg - I love your story! Sophia's story and yours remind me a little bit of Cinderella :D
I am feeling little blah today. There is this grocery store commercial on tv that has brought me to tears this morning (big sister is going away to college, big dinner in her honor, little brother acting tough, then the sister catches him looking longingly at the picture of them and she tells him "I'll miss you too.") I felt like such an idiot, DH tried to make me feel better but nothing worked. 45 min later I was driving to work singing with the radio. Now that is a mood swing! Funny thing is, last night DH took me to my favorite fish restaurant and I was telling him how all that stuff about mood swings seems to be passing me by. Spoke too soon :)
Sorry you are feeling blah Mimi. I hope your day gets better.
I've been cleaning more today. I've gotten all the bathrooms in the house cleaned. Tomorrow I need to clean the floors and make one last bed, then I think I'll be ready for ppl to come. That's been my exciting day.
I LOVE these stories! Thanks for sharing them. I'm such a sap even w/o meds. I'm sorry for the mood swing Mimi. Not too much longer!! Just tell DH that the stronger the mood swing, the better the meds are working ;) Good luck cleaning Meg. Enjoy your company! Sophia - :yahoo: Congrats!!! Hope everyone else is doing well.
I'll be back tomorrow hopefully with an update.
How are you feeling this morning Jenni? I can't wait to hear your update!
I almost would've missed church today. I was thinking it was at noon today. My mom checked since she is going with me and it's actually at 11. That would've been an oops! I'm going to make a coconut cream pie, rhubarb pie, deviled eggs and bread for Easter dinner on Sunday. DH's family comes later today.
What is everyone else up to on this fine Friday?
