#Microblog Monday

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.

Las Vegas

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 payday:

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 face up.  

Till next time…

Just Plain Weird

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.

I will post separately about my vacation J

Till next time

Paid Time Off

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.

Till next time…
