Keyser Snowsze

The title was my favorite name in the running for the current snowstorms.  I think it was beaten out by Snowpacolypse or Snowmageddon, but I like the goth feel of Keyser Snowsze.
I'm in my office today for the first time since last Wednesday.  It was really nice to have a break, but I had to get out of the house to get away from JD (who is still home from work).

We got a little over 29 inches by us, which I (90% me, 10% JD) shoveled off of my car and parking spot pretty quickly.  I went out for about 30 minutes on Saturday and then did another 45 minutes on Sunday and I was done!  I was motivated for bagels and also because BFF's dog had surgery last Thursday and was not doing well.  (She is since doing better - major thanks to SIL who thought to have us give the dog some Pepcid!).

JD did 5 minutes of shovelling on his own car (he wouldn't let me do anything).  So far, you can see the back of his car, but cannot get into the car.  (Apparently, bagels are not motivating factor for JD).  This car, currently encased in 29" of snow, is about to get another 20" thrown at it.  We may see JD's car moving again around April.
This 2ww really hasn't been all that bad, basically because I think it's not gonna work.  Right now, I'm just going through the motions of the wait and waiting for my period/negative beta so we can get to another cycle and then hopefully, one that will work.

I am really dizzy right now.  The reason for this is:

A) I'm pregnant. (Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.  Excuse me while I die laughing)
B) My body is fucking with me.
C) Differentials in air pressure in my office.
D) Not enough caffeine in the hot chocolate this morning.
E) Any of or a combination thereof of B, C and/or D, but certainly not A.
My unfulfilled due date is coming up soon - Saturday, to be exact.  I've been feeling pretty down about it, but I'm trying to hide it from JD.  If I remind him of it, he'll go all Sarah Bernhardt on me and I just can't deal with his DRAMA right now.

BFF and I came up with a plan to light candles for Shabbat on Friday night and to use that ritual internally as a memorial.
Since I worked on MLK Day, I get to take off for President's Day.  Getting inspiration from Mel, JD and I will be spending the 3-day weekend in Hershey, PA (assuming Keyser Snowsze doesn't blow it for us).  I will hopefully be getting a chocolate massage, going to a chocolate brunch and will definitely be going to a hockey game on Valentine's Day.  Yay, chocolate!

I kind of love shoveling and am oddly excited that we will be getting our own foot of snow today. Of course, that's easier to say after I've spent a week in Hawaii.

I'll be thinking of you as your unfulfilled due date approaches. I think that you and your BFF have a good plan to remember and mark the occasion.

Wishing you the best, always.

Bagels will motivate me to do just about anything. ;)
Thinking of you in this 2ww/due date time.
Have a great time at Hershey! I Love it there.

Sounds like you have an awesome weekend planned! Make sure you go to Hershey World and get a sundae afterward.

I'm thinking about you guys....*hugS*

~Jess said...

Yea, that Where Quilters Gather is me :-)

Trace said...

The snow is out of control. We're getting another storm starting tonight (Tuesday). I assume it's hitting your area also? Hershey is AWESOME! Enjoy! My husband proposed to me at the Hershey Hotel.

LOVE LOVE LOVE "Keyser Snowsze". That totally just cracked me up.

Will be demanding, er, I mean asking nicely, for some photos of your weekend in chocolate city. mmmmmmmmmm!

Will also be thinking of you. and hoping like a mofo. Like a hardcore mofo.

I love the task completion of shoveling, seeing it all disappear. But the 28 inches took AWHILE to disappear, it definitely sucked.

Thinking of you this weekend, glad you and BFF are doing something in remembrance. And of course, hoping like crazy that this will be it for you.

I hope you love Hershey to pieces and get good relaxation there.

Can I light my candles Friday night thinking about you too? I think that's a beautiful idea.

I'm still rooting for you this 2WW. I know how hard it is to keep the spirits up. Have a great time in Hershey!

Photogrl said...

The amount of snow is unbelievable!

Still hoping, wishing, and praying for you in this 2WW.

Enjoy Hershey!

Noelle said...

I am hopeful for you in this tww! I am sorry that your due date is coming up. I dreaded it for such a long time. It is understandable to be sad during this time. I hope that this cycle will be the magical one!

theclam said...

Thinking of you honey as your unfulfilled due date approaches, may this sadness be over taken by joy when you find out you have a BFP after this 2ww.

We got a ton of snow here, too. My friend in NYC didn't get any though. Sort of the opposite of what I'd have expected. Your trip to Hershey sounds like a lot of fun. I have always wondered if a chocolate massage would be cool -- let me know how it goes! The chocolate brunch sounds amazing. Yummm.

You will be in my thoughts this week and especially Saturday. *hugs*

Quiet Dreams said...

I also love the Keyser Snowsze. Brilliant.

I'm holding you in my heart for this anniversary and this 2ww. Hugs.

(Um, my verification word is "quack." Not sure what that means. Do you know?)

Thinking about you today...

biojen said...

I'm here from LFCA, abiding with you during your wait. I'll be thinking of you tomorrow.

LJ said...

Glad I got to see you today - even for a brief moment. Enjoy hershey, and I'll be thinking of you tomorrow.

SassyCupcakes said...

It's Saturday here and my thoughts are with you. I hope it's a dramaless day for you, I'm sure it's hard enough already without that.

The chocolate stuff sounds awesome. I hope you get very spoilt and have a great time. And I'm hoping your 2ww wait has a happy ending.

Thinking of you today... I hope you are having a very nice day!!

A chocolate massage??? That sounds dirty!

Kelly said...

I don't know how I missed this! How was your trip to Hershey? I live about 50 minutes from there. I love the town, the chocolate tour and have been to the spa several times. What did you do?
