the great infertilibinder

I was dismayed while shopping at Target yesterday to find the outdoor section has been replaced by the school supplies. It means that the time to go back to work is inching ever closer. But, I’ve always been a sucker for school supplies, so I walked through the section anyway.

Then, I had a brilliant idea. The Great InfertiliBinder. No longer will my charts, lab reports, and doctor’s notes float loosely in a folder. They will be organized! I bought a binder (I chose classic somber black) and dividers (colorful to reveal my real personality). Charts in one section, lab reports in another, et cetera, et cetera. My husband will think I have lost my mind. I probably have, but I don’t care.

D – why on earth would someone bring Kraft cheese to McDonald’s? I’ve been trying to figure that one out…

For those who are keeping track, today is CD1.

  1. Oh my god…you are my cyber twin. I am a teacher and find the school supplies section unavoidable. In fact, I do believe I am obsessed with office supplies. I even bought some even though I definitely don’t need my 30th box of crayons and 15th bottle of glue!

    Also, I have my own great InfertiliBinder — mine’s nice and green with many dividers —
    I finally put it together last month because I realized this journey wasn’t going to be over by summer’s end. Yes, my DH thought I was crazy, too, but I found that I had to get my insurance in order if nothing else!

    Yeah, CD1. Let’s hope this is your cycle!

  2. Hmm. I’m going to have to make an Infertiibinder.

  3. Oh Mrs. Hope,
    You’ve fallen prey to actually trying to *understand* my mother and her actions.
    Big mistake.
    The best I can do for you is tell you that she’s insane. If I recall correctly (being about 7 at the time), it was something about the cheese from home being “better” and “cheaper.”
    You’re right. No sense at all.
    Welcome to MY family.

    Good luck on this cycle. How can you go wrong with an infertilibinder????


  4. OMG – that is too funny! I have one of those! My RE would love me because I would print out my FF charts in color for her.

    Just came over from Dramalish’s blog to say hi. Hope you don’t mind me adding you to my bloglines list.


  5. Ha – I had one too, although now it’s more like a file box.

  6. I am totally jealous of this because I am so crap at organisation. I did try for about ten minutes to have an infertilibinder but it exploded into an infertili-drawer. I guess if I really wanted to I could drag it out of the shelving and carry it along to appointments…

    Also a lover of all stationery. Notebooks are my nemesis. Cannot resist!

  7. You must have been a dream student when you were a kid.
