Feel Good Friday
(Link up. You know you want to.)
UGH! I have kind of been dreading this post all week long. Because I don't feel good. No one in my house has felt good for quite some time now. Nothing 'happy' has happened to us, and frankly, I'm really getting bored of crap, financial surprises (the bad kind), cars breaking down, children entering the terrible twos, sicknesses (2 kids with croup, 1 kid with an ear infection, 1 kid with strep throat, 1 kid with the stomach flu, and me with cramps.), and other maladies that I just don't care to list because I'm bored, lazy and cynical.
So here's my half-assed (OMG, did you just read my SWEAR word? Well, that's about how I feel right now.) attempt at finding some good in this dreary gray world.
1. It's Friday. That means we get to have our 'special night' where we eat a special treat, and watch a new movie as a family. SO FUN!
2. Our pretend money for doing chores and store full of toys and treats thing seems to be working.
3. Finally got our taxes done. (Not getting back as much as I hoped, but at least we don't owe.)
4.I might get to go to a Casual Blogger's Conference in May!
5. I bought 3 pregnancy tests for only 4 dollars. (Lets hope they work this time.)

Foursons

Dear My Uterus,
Let us start out by saying 'GOOD JOB'. You have housed, nurtured and birthed three beautiful, perfect, healthy and naked, wriggling little creatures without a single hitch. No problems. No pressure. Just smooth sailing. You are feminine, you are strong, and you have everything going for you.
So what's the deal? I mean, it's not like you're old or anything. You're only 27. It's not like you're a vast, dried up and shriveled old cavern full of cobwebs hanging from every corner. You're young! You're vital! You're in great shape, and the doc says that everything is normal and good! So what's wrong with you?
Buck up, honey. I need a baby, and I need one soon! (I already bought summer clothes back in December, when I'd already been trying for three months and just KNEW I'd be pregnant in the sweltering heat of a Utah summer.)
C'mon. We're old friends, right? Attached at the hip? Where I go, you go? So be a pal. Let go of your hostility over that old birth control and just bring back that lovin' feeling.
Thanks, much!
Signed
Don't Make Me Come In There.

Sounds like you feel how I was feeling last week. We've had cars breaking down, too, as well as all kinds of other stress. Hope things are looking up!

I hope things get better for you as well. We're kind of in the same situation. Only one truck in the shop. Thank you for stopping by my blog, I am now following you and grabbed a button to add to my rolling blog roll! God Bless:)

Too funny, you are. I hope your pregnancy tests tell you what you want to hear.

I'm with FGF, so far I don't know how to get on McLinky. XD

BJ_Mama said...

awww...sending preggo vibes your way. I felt the same thing for over 6 months....*virtual belly rub*

(I bought a bridesmaid dress 2 sizes too big for the same reason....now it might need to get taken in a bit, but not too much)

ROFL on the "....don't make me come in there!"

Brandi said...

If it gives you hope... I do have an old uterus (I'm 38) and I'm pregnant with our 4th. My uterus would probably like to write me a letter. LOL!

Good luck. :)

Christine said...

I tried for 2 1/2 yrs for a second baby and on my 46th b'day decided that was it! Don't give up. I had my one and only at 42. Lucky you having three, but it makes no difference how many you have, when you want a bub and it isn't happening it's downright disheartening.

At least you are keeping a sense of humour about it with this post :-) Good Luck.

Foursons said...

OK, these 2 lines- "(OMG- did you just read my swear word?)" and "Don't make me come in there." C.R.A.C.K.E.D. me up! Bawahahahaaha. Classic- truly classic.

OK uterus- you got the letter. Time to buck up and do what you're made to do. No more playing around, things are getting serious now.

Thanks for linking up, I hope everyone gets well quickly and stays well!

Best of luck with your endeavors. :o)
Really. I KNOW how hard it is to have trouble conceiving. I have four children, but needed fertility drugs each time. After the last baby, the docs cut me off and refused to prescribe any more fertility drugs because of some silly cancer risk.
Good luck.

Aging Mommy said...

Hey there - I am 46 too and had my daughter three years ago. I've more or less (OK, reality check here less is where I am at, still hoping for a miracle) resigned myself to not having a second baby but the wanting doesn't go away. It can become a very obsessive habit and a sad one too, so thank you for todays post as it made me laugh. I am going to try the letter to my uterus too, in the hopes there might just be life in there still. Keep blogging and bringing a smile to our faces.

Shmonae said...

haha!! you are awsome :) So funny, were you trying to be funny..well you were :)
Hey, I am going to the saturday session in May at the Casual Bloggers conference. I am meeting up with Hen Jen at some point and would love to meet you to if you will be there!!

Serene is my name, not my life! said...

Sorry about the rough week! Bleh!
And maybe if you give your uterus a piece of chocolate, it would put it in an extra good mood! Good luck!

The Girl Next Door Grows Up said...

Enjoy your family night! Rituals are super fun!

LOVE the letter to your uterus - so funny! Thank you for doing FGF!!!!

In the future tone down that potty mouth - bwa ha ha! I swear like a drunken sailor!!!

Rachel said...

OY! I am cracking up at the "don't make me come in there!"

And I am totally wishing that my husband was on-board for just ONE MORE! Cuz right now my uterus is yelling at me.

Hope for good news soon!

Lourie said...

Broken down cars and sickness are not happy combos. Get better soon...all of you. I tell my uterus to shut down all the time. It still seems to think I need a period.

the Spocks said...

The fact that you had guts to write this bravo. Too funny. Have a great weekend!!!

bigguysmama said...

I went through a long period of no baby when I thought for sure I had a "super" uterus! It took about 6 mos so I was shocked, but had a little boy 9 months later! Keep on keepin' on. Hope that you don't have to go "in" there! :)

Got a call from my estranged husband tonight and he borrowed my minivan for work today. Backed into someone and put a dent in the fender. NICE!! Sigh...don't need more car issues either.

I'm with ya!

I with you on taxes. My husband and I thank our lucky stars each time we owe nothing (getting back almost nothing is still no fun). Found you at mom bloggers. Nice blog. You have three very pretty children.

Sabreena said...

I am placing your button on my blog http://thematernalexperiment.blogspot.com
today. Come on over and if you like it you can grab mine. Hope to hear from you soon. Good luck with the pregnancy!!!

semicrunchymama said...

Your "Don't make me come in there" had me in stiTches! And oh, can I relate. We've been trying for months now to concieve our second, and still...nada. I've got such baby fever that I swear I spontaniously ovulate every time I see a tiny newborn. Send that letter by certified mail to your uterus, and while your at it, could you send a copy to mine as well?

hypermom said...

Hey! There's always something to be grateful for :)

P.S. Dear uterus, we believe in you. Work it!
