Morayo’s Mountain 47: We Can’t Afford It On Our Own


October 29th, 2012

I really hate Mondays at work.

They’re just full of meetings and people trying to look smart. I truly hate them…especially after I’ve spent all weekend longing for a baby.

I’m beginning to sound like a broken record…

I’m still feeling rubbish. Sooooo tired. So worn out with everything. I’m hoping it is just because AF is due tomorrow and I’ll pick up after that.

I mainly just want to hide under the duvet and stay there until the world ends…

Babs and I applied for a loan, so we can progress with our long-postponed IVF cycle. I’m so scared. Scared we won’t get the money…and scared we will. I’m mainly terrified that we will get it and it won’t work. This really will be our final chance. There’s no way we can afford it on our own.

Well, the paperwork for the loan is all completed. So now, it’s the waiting game. Fingers crossed for us!

One of my friends on maternity leave brought her baby to work this afternoon. I had to cuddle the baby because the mother dropped her on my lap. Then I had the whole team saying stuff like that, “You should have a baby, they like you!”
“How come you don’t have a baby. You’re a natural!”

I know they meant well, but it just took me to all the wrong places! I’m so tired of wanting and longing! When will it be me??!

I think I might need to quit my job until I actually get pregnant. Well, I wish I could afford to…

So, I mention to my colleagues there is a serious lack of alcohol in my bloodstream at the moment. It was just a joke, mainly because everyone has been busy, so we haven’t been out for a while. Only for me to start getting all the “Ooooh! Why is that then?”, and the not-so-discreet looks at my stomach.

When will I learn with this lot?! And why do they have to assume I’m pregnant just because every other woman in there is.

I’m actually quite fed up!

It’s amazing how quickly the year has sped by!

It was Babs’ birthday yesterday, so I was busy Wednesday night baking cupcakes for him to take to his office. Then, last night, we were out for a really nice meal.

Besides that, it’s all good here. It’s been busy at work but I’m looking forward to the weekend.

Tonight, I’m sneaking into my parents house (well, not breaking, as I have a key). It’s their 40th wedding anniversary at the end of the year, so I want to scan a load of pictures of them over the last 40 years and make a photobook. It’s been so hard getting access to their house to get the photo albums without them knowing. Especially with Dad being so ill. It feels like there is always someone home!! But they are going out for a meal tonight with their friends, so it will be perfect.

The rest of the weekend is all mine to do what I want with! I can hardly wait!

Well, the mission failed!

Dad’s friend got stuck at work late, so their dinner got called off.  I need to have a word with my parents about security when I’ve done what I need to though. I managed to stomp through their compound with laptops, scanners, etc. and open their door, rummage through the house, with no one noticing. That cant be good!

I’ve taken tomorrow afternoon off because my siblings have finally found a way to distract our parents. They were faffing around for so long, which is why I decided to do it on my own, but now that they are helping, I just could pull it off!

I registered for a new zumba class at the gym, and it was sooooo much fun. It’s really hard because this instructor obviously has her own dances, and I didn’t know any of them. I went with my friend from work who had her baby in June. I really felt sorry for her. None of the others from work have kept in touch with her apart from me, and yet she’d expected everyone but me to keep in touch. Na wa o! I tire for these my colleagues! If I can send the odd text asking how her and the baby are, I can’t see why the others haven’t.

I guess deep down inside, I’m not that much of a bad person…abi?
