highs and lows

on September 6, 2011

Life’s been a series of peaks and valleys here lately.  I’d say last night was a valley, although valleys are lush and beautiful, and last nigh was depressing and scary.  Tom got home from work at about 5:40, he walked in the room and immediately said, “what’s wrong?”  I talked a little b.s. about other stuff, and when we both got quiet again he said, “I can’t tell if this is your worried face or your peaceful face.”  I asked him how he knew, and he just said, “you’re my wife.”

It’s kind of nice to have someone in my corner.  So, I told him everything I was thinking, and how scared I was about spotting.  You have to understand this ALWAYS happens.  Every other month for 3 years I’ve thought we might be pregnant and my period always comes 2 – 4 weeks late.  I ALWAYS get my hopes up and it NEVER pans out for us.

After I told him, though, all of the anxiety went away.  We read some stuff that has lead us both to believe it was probably just because we made sweet love the other day, and decided to just hope for the best.  We’ll see the doctor this afternoon and ask her.  If it turns out we’re not pregnant, at least visiting the doctor is a step in the right direction.

Tom went to wushu last night from 7 to 9 pm in Rock Hill.  We were really hungry when he left.  We hadn’t had anything since dim sum around noon.  (So you know we started being hungry around 1.)  He said he’d bring home dinner, and I think we were both on Asian time, which is when we completely underestimate how long things acually take, and figured alright, he’ll be home around 9 with dinner.  Well, he probably got back to our neighborhood between 9:30 and 9:45, went to Target to get groceries, came home and cooked dinner.  He woke me up from a sound sleep (for real – I was SOUND asleep) at 11:30 to eat dinner.  I love food way more than sleep, so I was really thrilled until 3 am when I was up tossing and turning.  Anyway… the whole point of this paragraph was to remind myself how good we’re doing.  We had turkey burgers on some kind of delicious whole grain bread, big dark leafy green salads and bowls of strawberries.

We went to Zaxby’s and Chickfila over the weekend, but at least we are getting back into the swing of things for the week.
