My husband was singing in the shower this morning. I went into the bedroom to get my laptop and I smiled while I listened silently. I'm working from home today so I headed back to my "office" but I just thought...He's happy. That's such a wonderful thing. It's a wonderful thing to hear your husband happy enough to sing. It's a blessing to still be this much in love after almost a decade of marriage and I'm just so grateful for it.
Man is that a PARTY town!!
We had a blast though. I
especially enjoyed old vegas…I felt like I was in the movie casino. There were a couple of nights where payday
and I actually got up to go out at one or two in the morning…I don’t think I’ve
EVER done that in my life. I’ve never
been a club person even in my twenties but hanging out in the casino in the wee
hours is kind of awesome J The night of the Mayweather fight was
mayhem and greatness all around. Anyway, here are
a couple of pictures of our little place on the strip.
Oh…I am afraid of heights to the tenth degree so these were all taken by
We didn't lose any money so I guess that’s all you can
really hope for in that town. I loved it but...Our next
trip will hopefully be on a beach somewhere with the main adventure being lying
So today…a stunning four days early…AF shows. It is by far the weirdest cycle in my how
many ever years of... well...of watching my cycle. I
started getting what felt exactly like ovulation cramps around CD 8. I didn’t even log it because it was
just…unheard of…I just dismissed it as regular cramps still echoing from the
cycle that ended a day or two before but now it looks like, I actually did
ovulate around CD 9 or 10 (If what they say about your luteal phase staying the
same is true.) It is also weird that
though I am cramping and there is enough blood for me to know, there’s no
chance it’s a pregnancy…its nowhere near my usual horror show. It’s like my aunt flo sent her younger sister
aunt trickle lol. Nobody get up in arms...if it had been the littlest sister (I'll call her Aunt spot), I would have been ready to whip out a test already. Believe me, it's enough of a show to be the real thing. Also, I would call the cramps "regular" not light. My cramping is just normally like something you see in Alien so to me it's less. Oh well…maybe
something’s changing in there and my next cycle will be the lucky one.
So, vacation she’s a coming.
Next week Payday and I will take
us a trip to the adventurous desert of Las Vegas. Our first vacation alone…for five days…in the
middle of the two week wait. Yes momma
likes this! This week I feel like I
just want to have fun. Don’t worry, I’ve
been here before…the stress will return but right now…I’ve lost 30 pounds and I
want to just enjoy my marriage and my life.
I am hoping a vacation from infertility thoughts is coming too…at least
for a day of that week. Do the
infertile get vacations? Real ones? I mean…we should have some PTO…I’ve been at
the job of being infertile much longer than my current professional position J I don’t know if I get a day off but after 5
years…I’m going to try sneaking out the back.
Who knows maybe I’ll get promoted and the BRB will no longer be the boss
of me at all.
