Mother Nature has a sense of humor

Today is the first official day of spring. Everything is blooming a turning green, it's beautiful. That is why it was such a surprise to wake up to snow this morning. It was 70 degrees 2 days ago. It snowed most of the day, but the ground was still too warm for it to really stick. It's funny that we haven't seen snow around these parts for 5 or 6 years and now we've had it 3 times so far. Hopefully that's the end of it.

In ttc news I am on cd 12. I will be entering my fertile window this coming week and I am just praying that I ovulate. I have started temping again this cycle and I will be starting opk's tomorrow because I don't want to miss anything. I have a really good feeling about this cycle, but we'll see if I still feel the same by this time next week. I will either be upset if I don't O or anxious in the 2ww. Either way, I will just take it how it comes.

On the work front things are getting stressful. The work itself is fine as always, but the only other woman in the office is driving everyone else crazy.  The main part of it is that she is going through menopause and is always having hot flashes. She doesn't care if everyone else in the building is freezing she will keep turning the air down til she is comfortable. I got tired of freezing so I put a little space heater in my area. Keep in mind that we sit in different rooms and where I sit is kind of like a cubicle, I have counters on 3 sides of me. The heater is at my feet and it has a thermostat so it runs for maybe a minute every 4-5 minutes and it only heats up my little area. She never says anything directly to me, but every time she hears my heater kick on she grumbles under her breath about it being a sauna in there and turns the thermostat down again.  All that does is make my heater turn on more often which just pisses her off more. It's a no win situation. Since I don't work on Fridays she has gotten into the habit of complaining about me when I am not there, but she knows I am going to hear about it since DH works there too.  There is so much more to it, but that is just what starts everything off. Then she makes comments on facebook on Friday's about being tired of the "mean" people at work. I can feel her gearing up for a blow up. She is famous for them and the boss always sticks up for her over everyone else so there is not even any point making complaints to him about any of the things she does because he always sticks up for her.

Sorry this has turned into a rant. I just start to get tense on Sunday evenings because I don't want to deal with this crap all week. I don't want the stress to affect my chances of conceiving, but I just don't know how to deal with this. All I can say is that when I do get pregnant my husband will not sit quietly by and watch me go through this, he will get very vocal at that point.

Any suggestions on how to deal with a difficult co-worker?
