Outdoorsy, my temp has zigzagged the past 3 days too! I thought maybe I had missed my surge. I hate it when signs aren't clear!
AFM, the past two days have been crazy, I'm glad that I can come here to share...
Most recent first -I called my sister tonight to find out where her boyfriend took her on their surprise getaway which she had told me about on Tuesday. Turns out, she knew where she was going, she was going to Hawaii to elope. They decided to because they didn't want a big wedding, wanted a ceremony on the beach, but didn't want to miss out on my dad walking her down the aisle. So, they "last minute" decided to go to Hawaii where my mom and dad were on vacation for 2 weeks. She has been married for about 20 minutes now I guess... Excited for her and all, yes, but quite hurt. When we were younger, high school age, she had told me she would make me her maid/matron of honor. I hadn't given it much thought at that time, but I was touched and decided that she would be mine too. When I got married, I asked her to be, she said yes, and flew to Connecticut for the ceremony. Now, my only sister (and only sibling) is getting married, I don't get to be her matron of honor, or able to be there at all, and was lied to about the whole thing. AND, my dad didn't walk me down the aisle (because I wasn't marrying a man) though he did attend. I knew that he would probably walk my sister down aisle, but it is still a little jab now that it has actually come time for that. I feel like the LEAST she could have done was asked me and DD to come, even if she thought it was too last minute or we couldn't have afforded it (I'm just guessing that is the reason). I would have found SOME way to get there.
Next, I went to buy a car today at an auction during their "Buy Now" program, bypassing the bidding wars. I found a car, it looked great, was in my (cheap) price range, test drove great. I bought it, was waiting on my proof of insurance to be faxed over, and got curious about what exactly this "Odometer Disclosure Statement" meant and using my phone, paid the outrageous amount for a CarFax report. They said the car was True Miles Unknown. From what the auction place said, it seemed like AutoCheck.com just couldn't find enough records to prove the mileage that it was listed as. Come to find out, there is such thing as a True Miles Unknown title, where if there is a report of a mileage discrepancy, they mark the title with this. The Car Fax report shows the last known mileage, before the discrepancy report, to be 214,000 aprx. in December! The mileage on the odometer? 107,000 aprx. I was so sick to my stomach! I asked the auction what I could do about it, cuz I did NOT want a car with 214,000 miles, I need something reliable! They said, I couldn't do anything, I bought the thing. They asked the dealership who sold it if we could just void out the whole transaction, and of course they did not want to. The auction did offer me a deal, where they would run the car through next week's auction and Buy Now program to see if I can get back the money I put into it. They would waive the seller's fee for me, reinburse me for the taxes and title fee, and if I found a car at next week's auction, they would deduct the buyer's fee that I paid. On the way out, they flagged me down saying that there was someone who had wanted the buy the car while I was in the process of making my offer. They called that person back to see if they wanted to buy it, they had already went to work, but would come back tomorrow morning. SO, here's to hoping they will buy it or it will go for enough at auction next week... In the mean time, I'm getting a hold of my consumer rights lawyer and getting some advice. It is my fault for not being aware of what TMU meant, but it is misrepresentive to post the 107,000 that the odometer reads when you KNOW mileage is DOUBLE, but just using a loophole of a TMU title and a disclosure statement. Augh, I still feel sick to my stomach about it for being completely duped!
Last thing -My temps have zigzagging! I got a temp rise Tuesday CD 15, I thought I had missed OV because I did my first OPK Monday. CM was mostly EW, but mixed with white. Temp back down on Wednesday CD 16, I had hope (but scant CM)! Temp back up this morning CD 17. I was worried again and making plans to schedule an RE appointment to store our shipped swim team for a month and just start doing office insems. for next cycle. But then, I got 2 smiley OPKs today! So, we will be insem-ing soon! (Guess it's a good thing that my sister didn't invite me to her Hawaii wedding...)
I am emotionally EXHAUSTED from today! Night all! Here's some baby dust to all of you!
