What is up with this cycle?

So, I mentioned last post that I had started for May's cycle. What I failed to mention was that I started on CD23??!!! WTF??!!! I have had a 28 day cycle for 3 months, since I started Acupuncture. While I was starting exactly 28 days from the time I had started the prior month, my surge was starting on CD10 or CD11. Four months ago, we actually had to send the swim team back to the bank because we had it delivered on CD12 and I had started my surge about 2 AM that morning. I could feel myself ovulating that morning at work and we had ordered two vials. I didn't want to waste using one of them and still have to send another back.
I had been a day 13 or 14 day surger basically every month. So, I thought the acupuncture had just sped up my surge and I've adjusted when I have the swimmers shipped to us each month and planned accordingly. 
Well, this month I had to have the swimmers delivered on day 7 because that was a Friday and Monday was going to be day 10 and I didn't want to risk it. So, here we are at CD11 or 12 (because I started very late on Saturday night, so not sure if Sat or Sun was actually cd1) and there is still NO SURGE showing up on the predictor stick. The swimmers should be fine until Saturday or Sunday, so that would be OK. But, I got a phone call Tuesday morning that my uncle had taken his life Monday night. The funeral will be about 4 to 5 hours away on Saturday morning. So, I'm leaving before lunch on Friday and Joy isn't going. This means we have to do two IUI's by Friday morning in order to get them in. I'll be checking before bed tonight to see if I've started to surge. If not, I'll get up extra early in the morning to check again. We'll fit them in somehow, but I'm hoping my surge starts because I hate to go thru aTWW feeling negative about our timing. That just makes the TWW seem to drag even more. Well, we'll see how it goes. I'll try to update on Sunday when I get home,
