Catching Up After a Chaotic Week

Posted Apr 19 2013 1:33pm

Oh, hai there.

Um… bit of a crazy week. I’m all like “write for The Infertility Voice!” and then just kind of peaced out. I had no idea just how chaotic this week was going to become. I posted my call for contributors just hours before the Boston Marathon bombings and it’s really occupied a lot of my heart and head space the last 4 days.

And then Larry gets up this morning for work, I’m sleeping in for a few extra minutes, and he comes back into the bedroom:

“You should get up and watch the news with me. The shooting at MIT last night is connected to the bombings and the two guys are on the run, shooting up people in Watertown.”

What the actual fuck.

We’ve been glued to the TV since 8am this morning. Larry is working from home, his office downtown closed today. I’ve been stalking on Twitter, Facebook and Reddit for updates. Part of me can’t pull myself away from the screens because I need to see this remaining suspect get caught.

I need to know that this madness is ending.

Thank you to everyone who has submitted Contributor applications so far! The response has been wonderful and I can’t wait to read more. If you’ve already submitted something, please pardon my lack of response. This week has been a little nutty, so I’m hoping to start thoroughly reviewing applications beginning next week.

Still haven’t submitted your application? What are you waiting for? :)

They’re been no guest blog submissions yet. Thinking of just dipping your toes into The Infertility Voice rather than applying for a regular Contributor role? Have a piece that you just need to get off your chest and share with the community here? Submit your guest blog!

Looking to help the folks in Boston? Consider donating here to the Boston TUGG (Technology Underwriting Greater Good) Fund for programs supporting victims and their families. They’ve almost reached their $200,000 goal.


What a week. Stay safe, everyone.
