If any husbands of infertile women read this, here is a piece of advice, NEVER leave your wife home alone for a week while on Clomid...NEVER!
And not for the reasons you think. I imagine you are all picturing me being a weepy mess of hormones and every time Keith calls, or calls late I burst out into an emotional break down. Ok yes this is happening, but this is not the true danger of being left alone.
I don't like being bored. And when I'm alone, that can happen quickly. So I stay busy, with projects and with the increased hormone levels, I may become a tad bit more controlled by these emotions.
The projects I decided to embark upon are the following...
With this whole soon to be adopting thing, Keith and I have been trying to plan the development of our basement, so that the children will have a place to play, cause they can't spend all winter outside! We have been S.L.O.W.L.Y making these plans, and really not much has happened. So to surprise Keith I thought I would do all the research and get some contractors to come and look at the place. I was given one quote of $27 000!!! For drywall, carpet and ceiling tiles. Yaaa right. My dear friend Nate came over to give me a better quote and some much needed advice. The quote is still high. Much higher then I was expecting, cause freak people I did all the renos and bought all new furniture for $23 000! THE WHOLE HOUSE, 23 grand, so why would a basement cost almost the same price! AHHH. Nate is going to talk to his people and get a real estimate put together for me. Presenting this amazing bill to Keith, will be a fun experience in deed.
Because the idea of spending 427 000 on a basement wasn't enough money wasting for me, I went mattress shopping. We DESPERATELY need a new mattress, all this timed baby making has taken a toll on our poor old mattress. We both sleep terribly, wake up tired and are grumpy. You spend 1/3 of your life sleeping, I think we deserve to sleep on something comfortable. I know Keith hates shopping so I went with the sole purpose of research. I had one on one attention from the sales guy. He filled my head with so much info on sleeping. I tried TONS of beds, and then he showed me the one. It is even beautiful to look at, with black piping and black threaded appliqués on the quilted top. I lied upon the heavenly surface and all the tension, stress and awakeness left. It stroked me with its amazingness and I was in love. The sales man quickly noticed my love affair with the mattress and went on a 10 minute speal about how FREAKIN PERFECT THIS BED IS. And it is only the small price of $4000! Then I passed out on the heavenly bed. When I awoke sales dude asked how much was I planning on spending, I thought a max of $2000, this doubles the already high budget that I had not convinced Keith of at all. He did some research. A new store was opening up at our neighbor province, they were having a sale on all mattresses. They had just received the same bed in but the factory made a mistake and the black beautiful piping is a wrong color, but who gives a crap when SHEETS will be covering it. The price for this beauty......$2400! Holy crap that is almost half off, so I put a totally refundable 10% down payment on the sucker. Won't Keith be thrilled!
AND seriously cause that was NOT ENOUGH MONEY.....our window was keyed. The punk kids that hang out at the bus stop across the street from us, have recently silly stringed our car, shot fire works at our house and have smashed the glass bus stop up so many times we can't even count. But they went to far this time. They took some kind of sharp instrument to my passenger side, front window. There is a massive zig zag across it which, terribly impairs visibility. There is no special glass scratch remover product that will take this off. I did the research, on normal glass there is some products, but on tempered, car, window glass, you are hooped. This is a leased car, it has to be returned in pristine condition, this has to be fixed. Which means replacing the window, cheapest quote.....$279. Ohhh I can feel the love Keith is going to be giving.
I also want to buy some new plants for the front garden, and strip the paint off our porch and re paint it annnd paint that refrigerator storage unit thing red already, cause freak I have been meaning to do that for so long. So there’s another couple hundred, not to mention the amount of money I have spend on my ridiculous Clomid induced food cravings. I rock at being single!
So the grand total of this week that Keith has been away will probably be something like....$31 000! That is not to excessive right?? RIGHT? It’s sooo the clomids fault honey, so clomid, not me.
