Not a WWW

So I purposefully avoided doing a WWW. Don't get me wrong, I'm still watching my food intake and exercising, but the pounds on the scale still aren't going anywhere. However, I am leaner and more toned as far as how I look and people at work are even commenting on it. I'm not sure if they are trying to indicate that I look healthier or that my pants are now too baggy, but whatever, I'll take the compliment.

On another note, I did get AF on Monday and am now scheduled for the laparoscopy. It's next Wednesday. I go for my pre-op on Monday at the RE's office for the details on the surgery. I'm now more freaked out that I don't know the time of the surgery or what hospital it will be at more than I am about the surgery itself. Perhaps this is progress.

As a total aside, I think the husband has lost his mind. I'm only slightly joking when I say that.

It seems that a number of things that bother him have pushed him over the edge. I just don't understand what could be that aggravating to a person who is out of school for the summer and all he does during the day is go to the gym and play video games. He is in fact so bored the he usually requests that I make him a list of things to do while I am at work all day. I usually only put 3 or 4 things on the list so that doesn't end up turning this around on me and claiming that I am forcing slave labor on him. So his list typically includes 3 or 4 of the following: Do the dishes, Wash the laundry, Dust the furniture, Vacuum, Clean the bathrooms, Mow the lawn (all 10 square feet), Run a few errands. Now mind you that these are typically all things that I do (except the dishes, I refuse to wash them if I'm always the one who cooks) in addition to working 50-60 hours a week. Yet he still freaks out about the turtle tank not being clean, or the dogs misbehaving (like whining because they need to go out to the bathroom).

There is more to the story on the husband, but I'm not sure if it is quite appropriate for the space that I've created here, but the gist of it is that I've recommended he seek out a counselor for anger management/PTSD. I hope that he decides to make the call.


  1. Hey sweetie, sounds like you have a lot on your plate! You need a spa day or at least a mani pedi day...Hubby sounds like maybe something deeper is bugging him and he's taking it out on the "slave labor" my D does that sometimes and it takes a while for him to finally admit to something else being wrong, but eventually it comes out.
    I hope you hear soon about the lap...waiting is the worst..I get to do my 2nd one next right??
    thinking of you fondly,

  2. Dr does his surgeries at El Paso day surgery. It a nice facility. He did my hysteroscopy there, and everyone is friendly and professional. And since I have been so much lately for my Ivf, his staff is growing on me :)

  3. UGH, tell him to get a summer job with a landscaping company or something to burn off some of that negative energy to and give him some direction. How frustrating!!!

    How awesome that you're getting compliments! Have you ever taken measurements?

    Good luck with your lap!

  4. Congrats on getting toned! I always loved that even more than seeing the numbers on the scale. Good luck with your laparoscopy.

  5. Hope the surgery goes well and as planned. either way you will know if something is going on or not.

    I was thinking a summer job as well for your husband if he needs something to focus on. hope it solves itself out and you can talk about it.
