Money Sucks

Seriously. Money sucks. We had a big meeting today at work and found out that due to the fabulous economy, someone from our department was let go. She sucked and it's not a big shocker, but we'll have to spread her work out among the rest of us. And they're reducing salaries at least through September. Oh, and we all have to take two days off without pay over the next few months. The salary reductions are small, and I know I could stand a couple of three-day weekends.

But damn, it was crappy news to get on the same day that I received bills for more than $1,000 of IF bills that we'll be paying out of pocket. I expected one of them, but I thought the acupuncture was going to be covered. Wrong! Oh well, it will all be worth it if this works, right?

And we start the Ganerelix tonight. It's a shot in the thigh. I don't know why, but I'm super freaked out by this one. I know I shouldn't be. The needle is much smaller and we don't even have to mix it, but I'm still flipping out about it. E's definitely going to have to do it for me.

It's been a long week. All I can say is TGIF.


  1. Hope the shot goes well.. I wouldn't want one in my thigh either;)

    sorry about your work situation..

  2. That stinks! Hope it gets better at your job.

    Good luck tomorrow! Can't wait to hear how things are going.
