Feeling like the Seven Dwarfs

... well, some of the originals and some of their mates. After only two (rhinoceros) doses of Gonal-F, I am now Sleepy, Grumpy, Spotty, Bloated, Sweaty, Weepy and Psycho.

And here's our schedule for the next few days.

Today I have to get to the clinic by 8:15 for a scan, then drop DH off for his first driving lesson (in a simulator so he can get used to the controls before having to worry about dealing with other traffic - I'm so excited that he's finally got round to booking it), do a whole load of shopping, pick DH up again, spend the afternoon peeling, chopping, slicing and dicing, make DH's birthday cake, wrap his presents, cook a meal for the six people who are coming round for dinner this evening, and then collapse into bed hopefully some time before midnight.

Tomorrow is DH's actual birthday, so I'll make him breakfast in the morning and give him his presents. Then we'll go to Mass and go straight from there to pick his parents up (20-odd miles away) and take them out to a restaurant for lunch. Back to their house for tea and cake (must remember to take the cake with us), then home in time to do my jab and collapse for the evening.

Monday - scan very early in the morning, followed by acupuncture, then a two hour drive to go to my best friend's mother-in-law's funeral, go to the wake afterwards and try to speak wise words to my goddaughter, who is apparently distraught at the loss of her grandmother, then two hour drive home in time to do my jab and collapse for the evening.

And then five days' work in four days over the rest of the week, as I don't have enough holiday left to take Monday as holiday.

And all this in the company of the New Improved Seven Dwarfs.

Well, at least I won't have time to sit around obsessing about whether this treatment's going to work...


  1. Yawn, just reading it makes me sleepy... And I'm unaccompanied by any dwarfs :-)

  2. Psycho Dwarf! Hehe. Love all your Improved Dwarf names. Sounds like you have a lot on your plate ... doesn't it just figure that everytime you cycle a million other things have to get done, too? It always seems like that.

    I hope you get some rest in there somewhere.

  3. I'm exhausted just looking at your schedule! But what a great distraction. And yeah for DH getting driving lessons! Woohoo!!
