March Photo Challenge: Day 14



Prompt: Design

About this photo: Shot with my old iPhone so pardon the low resolution. This is the view from my office window. It’s a terribly boring view most of the day until about 4 p.m. when the sun creeps around the side of my high-rise and those delightfully consistent slices of light start to spread in perfect unison across the very bland building exterior. I have spent a lot of afternoons watching as they expand. I find it meditative and reassuring.


It’s not too late to join the March Photo Challenge. Click here for the details. And click here to see a list of the current Photo Challenge participants!


In other news: THE RAGE seems to have tapered off and now I’m dealing with THE SAD. It’s hard. I feel that with every purchased round of IVF, you should receive 12 complimentary boxes of Puff’s Plus with Lotion for your poor raw nose and eyes.

    Pretty interesting building though! Sorry that IVF is giving you the blues. Why don’t they throw in tissues? Or at least chocolate?

    I think that’s a wonderful idea. I’m sorry you’re feeling down. As someone who’s typically very even keeled, I was not prepared at all for the range of emotions that overwhelmed me during our IVF cycle. I wish the doctors and nurses included a page on what to expect and how to deal with it all.

    Oh, and I’m going to send THE SAD a separate message telling her to leave you alone. She is an unwanted house guest, unless she can turn into THE CALM or THE HAPPY. Take care of yourself!

      For real! I think RE’s should require all first-timers go to a few days of pre-IVF counseling to learn how to deal with the crazy. I think I’ll suggest this to mine!

        I know The Sad and The Crazy well. In fact, I swear I just came over to your blog after hitting publish on my post entitled “The Crazy.” It should all be called The Crap, IMO… Because of how much it sucks! But atta girl for triggering the porn censors! Keep it up!

    I can no longer open your blog at work. It’s blocked as PORN! HA HA!!

    Does that scare THE SAD away a bit?

      Get out of town! I’m both humbled and appalled. I wonder if it is because of my potty mouth posts? I’ll have to comb through and see what might be flagging it!

    So true on the Puffs Plus!! That should totally be a staple item when your IVF meds ship!

    tissues? I vote wine!

    Oh wait you can’t drink.

    Chocolate then!

    I love the way the light looks like each window has a tick (check) next to it. That building gets full marks.

    Those windows are pretty cool! My psyc has those tissues and I don’t look quite as bad coming out of her office as I do when I am home.

    Sending you lots of hugs!!! Hope you find away around or over the sadness. Thinking of you
