Craptastic Week of the Sinking Puffer

Well, let’s see what can happen in one week:

  • I’m 10K less in insurance
  • All my pants are too tight
  • I’ve had the shortest period ever
  • Followed by my period making periodic (no pun intended) appearances
  • I have a box of drugs sitting on my floor that I won’t be using
  • My IVF cycle was canceled
  • The $3,000 in sperm we submitted to our flex spending account was accepted…before they rejected it. Which means we may have just lost three grand.
  • I lost my one-of-a-kind ring and I know someone in D.itmas P.ark is wearing it and I’m pissed
  • Due to a re-org, I’m moving cubicles at work to the worst space in the entire office where I might as well write a sign in Chinese and Spanish announcing that I am not the receptionist and I’m not delivering any food.
  • I was punched in the head by a bitter teenage mother wielding a baby stroller as a WMD during rush hour when I accidentally bumped her stroller while she BLOCKED THE DOOR.
  • My insurance company is sending me in circles over whether or not donor egg is covered. Yes. No. Yes. No. Yes, but you pay out of pocket and then we decide if we’ll reimburse and how much…for 20K out of pocket I want a better answer than that.
  • It’s been nothing but cold and on the one day we had ‘warmish’ weather, I neglected to move from my desk to the outside.
I think that’s all the suckage I can take in one week’s time.

But hey, we have a new President! No more Southern accents in the White House!
Woot Woot.

Good News is that I’m running! My goal is to stay as healthy as possible during this forced break and get my abs back before I go stick some more needles in them.
K is taking me here tonight for a belated Christmas dinner with her brother. Lobster. Yum.
I have a baby shower tomorrow night for 2 gay guy friends who are having twins and I couldn’t be more Thrilled for them!!! We’ll go out dancing with the ladies afterwards and hopefully it will be a better experience than the last time I was in a lesbian bar. I really don’t like this club at all, but since this place has mysteriously closed, we don’t have many options.
My BFF from uni is in town all weekend and I am really looking forward to spending time with her. She cracks me up non-stop and right now I need crack.

Puffer is treading water but Puffer starts to swim.
