So as most of you know, I am in limbo-land, STILL without a positive test since the original one at 6 DPO (which I look at daily because it, at least, is definitely positive--I might even see if it will come out in a pic so I can prove to all of you that I'm not crazy).
Anyway, AF is due on Monday, and I've just been spending my days on i-village, trying to pass the time until I FINALLY get a positive test or she is FINALLY late (or, ideally, both!).
This weekend, DH will be working Sat and Sun, so I was sort of like damn, two more days of waiting around.
BUT, last night one of our friends invited me to take a trip with him this weekend to Canada. (He had asked a few other people, but no one else can go).
His plan is to go to bed early, sleep for a couple hours, and then leave around midnight, drive over night and so arrive in Quebec City for sunrise. I guess this weekend there is like an ice-sculpture festival type thing. My friend is a photographer so he wants to take pics of the sculptures. He already has a hotel booked with two double beds and everything. On our way home, he wants to stop in Montreal and go to the Art Museum there. I think we'd be getting back on Monday.
So, on the one hand, it sounds really fun (albeit a bit cold, LOL), and I feel like it would be a really nice distraction from FREAKING out (like I temp in the morning and my heart starts pounding at the thought of a low temp--maybe that's why it is even that high! LOL). It sure sounds nice to go into a frozen world and come out three days later with (ideally) no hint of AF and surely, by then, a positive pregnancy test.
Also (this is sort of stupid but oh well), this would be my first major trip since I got my GPS, and it would be fun to go to different vegan restaurants or hit spots along the way without any worry of getting lost or whatever. My Dad has been grooming my navigator skills since I could read a map so navigating Canada with a GPS holds some weird excitement for me, LOL.
On the other hand, this friend is sort of an intense person. I worry about getting annoyed with him (especially since I've felt like I've had a MONSTER case of PMSy/PGcy crankiness for the last week), and I worry about getting tired and being ready to eat/sleep/relax while he still wants to go go go. In general I have always felt like it is slightly annoying/stressful to travel with anyone other than DH.
So those are the pros and cons, I have until midnight (LOL) to decide. If you were in my position, would you go on the trip, or stay home?
