I am much relieved the world didn't end at 6pm today. As I lay there enjoying the gentle attentions of LaWanda (that came out weird but you know what I mean), I told Dr. Conceivable I would be really pissed off if the world ended just as things were looking so good for this cycle.
Today's scan showed:
Right: 19.3, 15.8, 11.1, 12.4
Left: 12.4, 12.9, 11.8
So, Tuesday is iui day, which as any IF struggling gal would agree, the world ending 3 days before would really screw up the plans!
A short chat with Dr. C about the potential ending of life as we know it brought up the subject of disaster preparedness. It sounds like the doctor has her disaster plans (and kits) fully organized and in place, ready to go in case of any emergency or natural disaster. I wish I could say the same for me!
I did at one time have a huge disaster preparedness supply in my shed in the backyard. Slowly, through the years, I raided it and barely anything remains. I have a rudimentary one in my car but it's nothing really that would keep me for more than two days (and that includes me digging under the seats for old french fries to keep me going).
As I live smack dab in earthquake country (with The Big One predicted to hit within the next 30 years or so) I realize I am being imprudent and naive.
What kind of person am I (mother will I be?). I have no water jugs stashed, no cash tucked into a safe place, no case of Cliff bars or bags of freeze dried food, no extra shoes, antiseptic, toilet paper, dental floss, band aids, matches, radio, batteries or even a flashlight stored anywhere on my premises.
What about you? How prepared are you?
PS. Here's a few sites which give comprehensive lists for building your own disaster kit. It will either make you feel very assured or send you straight into a panic (me).
