Well hey there, Internetz! I hope that the start of the week has been treating you well. We are enjoying some unseasonably spring-like weather in my neck of the woods. The kind of weather that, were we all in high school, we'd probably be skipping class to sit outside and bask in the sunshine.
Wait, you did that too right? Back in high school I had a teacher whom I'll call Mr. M. who taught a lot of the business courses. God love him, the man was a complete pushover. At the sign of some good weather it just took a sugary sweet request to "Pleeeeeeeeeease let us have class outside" and the man would cave. He was also a firm believer in "mental health days" and actually encouraged us to miss a class if we needed to just to clear our heads. He was either ahead of his time or completely insane. Possibly both.
What's that? You're wondering how I'm doing with this two week wait deal? Oh, did I forget to mention that? SILLY ME. I must have completely forgotten that I was in the midst of one! (This is where you're to imagine me batting my eyelashes and telling you that in my syrupy sweet voice usually saved for teachers on warm, sunny days.)
Internetz, if I may be frank (why do I feel like all of you are going to address me as Frank in the comments now?), I am going bat shit crazy here.
Honestly, this is my worst two week wait. EVAH. I don't know if it's because I have been so filled with hope since this cycle seemed to come together so well or what, but the wait is killing me. KILLING. ME. You know that pregnancy test commercial where the woman says something along the lines of "Want to know the minute you conceived? Well science is getting close..."? Well let's just say I'd like to give science a good slap and tell them to get on it already! Bloody hell if I make it to the end of these two weeks, I may have gone just past the brink of insanity so it may not matter what happens!
So I survive with distractions! Fortunately work has kept me on my toes and will continue to do so this week. I have also spent a lot of time with this woman and this woman. I must say, I have a bit of a girl crush on them both. I'm cooking up a storm over here, hoping to try a new recipe every night, and baking in between! This however, has been a great distraction and reaping the rewards has been even better. I imagine that if in two weeks I see another negative appear (yet again), I will take myself to my happy place where the two of them will pat my head and tell me it will be okay while they each feed me their latest recipe to make it all better.
Moving on. So that's where I'm at. Tell me, what do you do when you need to be distracted? It's not just about the two week wait. There are many moments in life when distraction is not only needed but it can even help keep you going. How do you cope?
