Some reflections

Soooo its day 2 for AF and thank God she's here! She has sealed the deal for me with IVF numero cinco! The final slap in the face, if you will, but you know it feels good!

I have decided, again, to put this "one" behind me. (LOL...Sorry I am laughing as I type this... it just seems to get old doesnt it?) Every few months I am typing this same type of post. No more I tell you! (yeah right) Give me a few months and come back to read about round 6!!!

But seriously we are okay. It hurt again, but as I always say, it wasn't meant for us to be parents yet. For whatever reason, it just was not our time, now.

So today i was counting, AF stays around waaay too long each month, 8 days for me , I know. But anyway this month is our 12 year anniversary and of course I think we will travel to our favorite destination... DAHAB! AF will be gone by then, and the Red Sea awaits me!

I am a fish, been swimming since age 2 (mom threw my sister and I into the pool with one of those strap on styrofoam bubble floats, and no i don't think they are around anymore, remember I am 30 something) and that was all she wrote. Since then I LOVE the water and swim anytime I can! And what could be better than swimming in the Red Sea, in June, one of the hottest months here in Egypt, nothing at all.

But in the midst of this failure I completely forgot to blog about the accident. The day before my final and third beta, a huge bus hit my husband. Smashed him into the curb, he is fine, thank God, but our car...well thats another story.

Gone are the days of police reports and insurance claims, here neither exist. If you get hit here, you get our of your car, argue a bit, get tired, tell the ahole who hit you to leave before you....
and the damage comes out of your pocket, love it!

We were suppose to hear something yesterday about our car, no call. So maybe today or tomorrow, or maybe not ever. Here time is one of those things that is not important. Frustrating, but you sort of get used to it. Well we can't actually and it drives us crazy!

So yet another expense we could have done without, but thank God DH was not hurt, thats all that matters.

Its gonna be a scorcher today, 109 my igoogle forcasts for Cairo, so indoors all day and we'll see what the evening brings.


  1. As much as I hate to admit it. I will do what ever it takes to get pregnant. So IVF #5 sounds pretty reasonable to me.

    Sorry to hear about your car. Glad no one was hurt, just your wallet.

  2. I admire how you take it all in stride. It's amazing. I'm glad to know you.

  3. I am so glad your hubby is OK!

    The Red Sea sounds wonderful. We are dying to plan a trip to Egypt. I really want to SCUBA dive in the Red Sea. Please post about your trip! :)

  4. That's awful about your husband's accident. Glad he's ok. And 109 degrees! That's a scorcher. It's only 95 here and it's felt so hot!

  5. The same acceptance you have seems to be the same mindset my intended parents are on.

    So sorry to hear of the terrible wreck, but thank goodness your husband is okay!

  6. I think you have a wonderful outlook...I admire you for that. I would be a mess! But, I do believe that all things happen in time...(sometimes easier to say than believe, I admit).

    Swimming in the Red Sea! I am cool is that? I think it would be so neat to live in Egypt (or another foreign place) for some time. But, it does suck that there is no such thing as insurance! I hope your husband got some good cursing in at least....glad he wasn't hurt!

    Take care :)
