Almost perfect

The directionally wayward wank waste has been sent on his way.

For one reason or another, primarily shagging, no OPKs were used this month, so if we get knocked up all you 'just relaxers' can claim a mini moral victory.

Bear in mind if anyone says 'I told you so' I'll break your legs and rape your cats.

Funnily enough the indications now are of a slightly earlier than usual ovulation, so we'll see how that works out now that we're in the two week wait.

Anyway, my point. I honestly don't understand the psychology of this whole thing. Just weeks ago, and not exactly for the first time either, we were deflated again. Now, yet again, I'm quite hopeful.

Every month you need a hook to hang your hope on, sometimes it can be the same one as before, sometimes you need to find another one, something else that gives you the thought or the hope that this could be the one.

What was this it month? Not pills, potions, or propped pillows, it just feels right.

Very right.

Lying there, semi covered, spent and breathing heavy. Watching the slowing rise and fall of a breast, trailing fingertips along a thigh and hip, with evening having stolen most of the light from the room without you noticing.

This is how it should be, it should all begin from this very moment, a stirring, a bump, a healthy glow, and all the months and years that follow.

Everything just perfect.

Two years into this craziness, but better than ever, don't let anyone try to convince you that it has to be otherwise.

A tired smile, a happy smile, a cheeky smile, and more light stolen from the room.

At this moment, everything perfect.

Almost.

I have a lump in my throat.

I am a girl, remember...

You ever thought about writing chick lit? *snigger*

tiff said...

Wow.
So beautiful.
You are, of course, right. It should always be that way.

Ms. Moon said...

You know, I hope the experience was as beautiful as the written description.
Lovely.

iVegasFamily said...

It was the way it should be. I'm hopeful too.

Sarah said...

Dude....the cat thing. Not cool.

I sincerely doubt any of us, well...except maybe Kelley(and she would only say it jokingly)Would say I told you so.

WhatAboutNovember said...

lovely.

now that is a hook to hang hope on.

Chaos said...

There would be no I told you so, one because I'm pretty sure we're a nice bunch, but after the cat statement I'm just scared.

Sue said...

So glad you got that moment.

prayingtodarwin said...

I love starting off my morning with writer's envy.

The Social Frog said...

I have to agree, it SHOULD always be & happen that way. Great post, made me a little sad...

Tismee2 said...

You been eating poetry books?

If it's not one cat it's another!

Hope this one is 'right' for you.

womb for improvement said...

Whilst I sincerely hope that you are successful this time, if you are, for
the sake of all us others languishing in a non-conceivable funk you need to
go back and replace this post with something that starts with, "This month we have been more stressed than ever ..."

IrishNYC said...

There's always room for hope.

Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] said...

Like Barack says, "Hope."


*ducking flying potatoes*

whybother said...

That's a beautiful post. Where is your snide, sarcastic evil twin? Or did your beloved write that post? :)

Now, where's my husband???

bsouth said...

I have no cats, but then I never said to relax so I'm not qualified to say I told you so. Hmpf.

Hilary (Maya Papaya) said...

What an awesome post. I'm actually tearing up a bit here. I love this post.

And PS- you are more than welcome to rape any one of my three cats - they are super lazy and would probably enjoy the attention.

And PPS- in my experience, if it feels "right" then it is!

xo

Momo Fali said...

I think this may be my favorite post ever...and that's really saying something. I am thrilled that you are hopeful.

Amanda said...

Sounds like you've got a pretty solid hope-hook right there

Leslie Laine said...

Ahhh...yes, this is how it should be. It sounds so much better than the nerve-wrecking feeling of laying on a cold table in stirrups wondering if it's stupid to keep my socks on or take them off...

1sttimedad said...

A cat rape reference in a post about the joys of sex, now that's straddling a fine line!

Good luck this month!

Bonnie B. said...

NOT saying "I told you so"??? Oh hell to the no!!! I am SO saying those 4 little words if this is THE month!

Momma said...

No matter how hard you try to push it down, HOPE always floats back up again!

Here's hoping with you!

Paint it Black said...

umm my cats just crossed their legs and left the room, that may be a sign............

Quickroute said...

"directionally wayward wank waste"

beautiful poetry!

River said...

I'm as hopeful as everyone else. Not going to say I told you so either. Smug ain't my style.

P.S. Just because you're in the two week waiting period doesn't mean you can't keep trying. Lots more peaceful, non-stressed, sex may be just the thing.

Jane G said...

I'm locking up my cats as a precautionary measure :o)

Daisy said...

So wonderful that it still feels so right- that's so much in itself. Great post, lots to be hopeful about.

Angel said...

Beautiful. If you could just hold onto this feeling for every month, you might get through this sane.

B said...

shortlisted!
looks like you are a specialist.

"Bear in mind if anyone says 'I told you so' I'll break your legs and rape your cats."
I highly doubt the missus approves of that

Ed (zoesdad) said...

Nice come back from the wayward wank waste. I'm not all weepy---because I'm a dude, and it's forbidden. But this was nice.

Tiny Tyrant said...

Good luck.

I bounced here from Fear and Parenting in Las Vegas.

TT - year four, ivf round 2 coming up.

hotmamamia said...

Dare I say that your comments were beautiful? Damn man, I didn't know you had THAT in you...other stuff, yes, but lovely warm manly mush!!! This is sounding good...fingers and toes crossed.

darcie said...

I'm just glad I don't have a cat! Here's to hoping this is your month!

Xbox4NappyRash said...

@Kelley - this is ALL chick lit isn't it?

@tiff - Yes, it should. But...

@Ms. Moon - The written description doesn't even come close.

@iVegasFamily - Cheers

@Sarah - Tis cool, Im not a fan.

@WhatAboutNovember - You could hang yer coat on it sometimes ;0P

@Chaos - Just so you know, :-)

@Sue - Not just one though, always, like it should be.

@prayingtodarwin - If only you said 'Penis'

@The Social Frog - It shouldn't do, it's a hopeful thing. I think.

@Tismee2 - Poetry sucks...

@womb for improvement - I can not tell a lie!

@whybother - I can be nice. sometimes.

@bsouth - watching you...

@Hilary (Maya Papaya) - Thank you. Honestly.

@Momo Fali - It may very well be mine too. Thousands of unwritten words are in there.

@Amanda - Not bad, for now!

@Leslie Laine - Ideal world eh?

@1sttimedad - straddling, hee hee hee....

@Bonnie B. - Cats beware.

@Momma - SO true.

@Paint it Black - wise move moggies....

@Quickroute - akin to yeats, I thought myself

@River - Oh alright then, we'll go again, just for you....:0)

@Jane G - if ONLY you lived in Kilkenny...

@Daisy - There is, thank you.

@Angel - One at a time, that'll do for now.

@B - So I see, curiouser and curiouser!
She's no cat fan

@Ed (zoesdad) - had to try and pull that one out of the bag

@Tiny Tyrant - Thats a long long time, a hard road. Best of luck, and thanks.

@hotmamamia - Thanks.

@darcie - filthy animals anyway!

Kim said...

"Wayward wank waste" and "rape your cats" seamlessly to "Two years into this craziness, but better than ever, don't let anyone try to convince you that it has to be otherwise." Well done, sir.

James said...

Here's hoping you attain perfection soon.

Tanya said...

I have never held this much hope for someone else, ever.

I am a 'just relaxer' I suppose.

I had a fantastic 21st birthday, showered with love and affection from the significant other. 3 weeks later a confirmed positive test with the conception dated to my birthday.

Maybe spencer operates on love, appreciation and passion as well as luck.

Amy said...

Oh wow, that was lovely. Even makes me feel like "just relaxing" and enjoying an intimate evening.

Almost.

Jill said...

As always - I'm thinking of you guys and am so hopeful. Keeping fingers and legs crossed...

Cindy (and Brian) said...

Nice post.
I hate those "just relax" people too.
So glad I don't have a cat.

Xbox4NappyRash said...

@Kim - Thank you, appreciate that.

@James - I'm aiming for sainthood

@Tanya - he better operate on something!

@Amy - hee hee, still laughing at the walk of shame.

@Jill - Thank you.

@Cindy (and Brian) - I don't understand their lure myself.

geeksinrome said...

at least THAT should always be that way :)

instead of Carpe Diem, dude, you have discovered Carpe Coitus! keep the love.

Jenni said...

love this post, love your hope.

Xbox4NappyRash said...

@geeksinrome - it sure should! gotta do what we can.

@Jenni - I think its my own favourite actually.

Irish Mammy said...

The post is almost perfect, except for the cat raping reference. Lock up your cats and let's keep our fingers crossed xx

Xbox4NappyRash said...

@Irish Mammy - Thanks.
