Jam packed

This has to be one of the most dreaded weekends of my life.

We are still dealing with our grief, which is also stirring up memories of my grandmother for me, and we are expecting a houseful of guests.  The In-laws are descending upon us.  The Husband's parents, sister and two brothers.

On top of it, since I took Clomid, I'm expecting to ovulate sometime this weekend.  Fabulous. 

Everything seems to hit all at once, and at the most inopportune times.

I'm feeling a bit emotionally fried, and I am DREADING this weekend.  I am a bit miffed that my in-law's deemed their trip so important that they have to come during this emotionally charged time.  And they'll be here from today till Tuesday morning, effectively taking away any downtime that we could have had.

When we expressed our hesitance, we were bombarded with a guilt trip of how his sick sister wanted to come over.  I feel like we were backed into a corner with no way out.

Help me be positive.


  1. I wish I could say something clever or witty to help you through such a rough patch.

    Instead I'll keep you in my thoughts and hope that despite all that you have coming to you this weekend, that it will all go smoothly.

  2. That's very insensitive of them. Sorry you're going to have to deal with everything at once. But just remember...maybe a baby can happen soon! Yes? That's good, right?

  3. You don't need help from anyone to be positive. Just read your own words from your post on June 30th, and realize THIS is one of those times to value the time you have with those you love. It may not be convenient timing, but in the long run you'll be glad you have the memory of the whole family together.

    (On a side note: I'd stock up on some wine just in case :-)

  4. inlaws bring a entire new level of Stress !!
