Another great weekend, well for the most part. Friday I stopped by the grocery store before heading home to get some one on one time with DH before picking the kids up. We then headed to the corn maze which was a lot of fun. We had a tractor ride out to the corn maze and then we let B lead the way. The little turkey led us right to the exit and since we hadn’t found any of the 5 questions we went back in. It was a big maze and a lot of fun but after an hour and a half and only finding 3 clues we threw the towel in and headed home for dinner. It was a late night for all of us and by the time the kids were in bed we were exhausted. We decided to not do Yoga and then I decided to not clean so we watched an I Survived and then I went to bed.
B was up at 6:30 and went to the bathroom then I got him to go back to bed. He was up again at 7:15 and I told DH since he wanted to be up at 7 so they jumped in the shower and I kept sleeping. I did get up shortly before 8 only after DH said L was up. I whipped breakfast together and DH prepped for the football game and then L and I went to get ready for the day while DH and B left for Msla. L and I went to a park in Bzmn for about an hour and then we went to Vera Fare for lunch. It was delicious, especially their avocado muffins, mmm. Once we got home I laid down with L and then cleaned everything but the floors while she napped. I had to wake her a little early so we could go to N’s for the Jewelry party. I apparently am a loud mouth because I walked in the door and the next thing I know I’m babbling and everyone is staring at me. I hope it was all in a good way, at least it’s never quiet when I’m around. L was shy at first and then she was a little terd. She did not want to share anything and I had to put her in TO before she started playing nice. The jewelry was really nice and my sucker arse signed up to throw a party in November, it will be fun. After the party L and I put up the spider web and spider on the front porch and then we ate dinner and cuddled on the big chair while watching Blue’s Clues. It was so nice to cuddle with my love. She then went to bed and I cleaned the floors. DH and B came home while I was in the middle of this and once B was in bed DH and I did our P90X. It was after 10 once we finished so we skipped Ab Ripper and I went to bed.
Sunday I was able to get the kids to watch Tom & Jerry while I slept longer, it was 7:45 before I got out of bed. DH was up shortly after me and I made breakfast then was surprised by a phone call at 8:30. It was my SIL W and I let it go to voice mail, thank God I did. I checked the message and she said, “C please call me when you have time there are some things I need to talk to you about.” It didn’t sound friendly at all so I called my mom to see if she had any info. My BP is going up just typing this, ugh! She didn’t know what was going on and then received a call from W so she hung up with me. Once she called me back she said W had e-mailed me a letter and that she was wanting to make amends. I then went to the computer to read the letter and it basically stated how horrible I was and in no way came across as wanting to make amends. I was furious and hurt, back to the drama and BS! Half of what she accused me of (not apologizing for getting mad last Christmas and giving her kids pink eye and hand, foot, & mouth disease) was a lie. I did apologize (sent her a copy of the e-mail to prove it) and we didn’t give her kids pink eye or HF&M because all L had was a sinus infection. She was mean as always in the e-mail and I was mad. Once I cried and calmed down we got ready for the day then headed to Target. When we first got to Target I heard a woman say to her kids “when she walks by we’ll boo”. It was in reference to my UM sweatshirt I was wearing because we do live in Bobcat country and they’re rivals. I gave her a look that let her know I wasn’t impressed and I told DH what they were planning. I told him I will throw out a FTC because I’m not in the mood. Thankfully they didn’t say a thing but it still made my BP rise, not that it was too hard with the spike W gave it. We bought most everything we need for the Halloween party and got B his light saber. It was then back home for lunch and naps. I was able to get tons of laundry done, do DH’s books, and prep dinner before we woke B up and headed to the Hay Bale Maze. I wanted to get a run in but it didn’t happen. The maze was a lot of fun and the kids had a great time, easier than the corn maze and smaller. We also let the kids ride a train around the area and then they played in a corn box, they loved it. Once home it was dinner and bed. DH and I did our P90X and then I voted and organized paperwork before calling it a night.
This morning was great with cuddles and the day has gone fast at least. I responded to W’s e-mail and politely stated my case on each issue and added that she needs to forget and move on like the rest of us have. I also let her know she’s hurt me also, she’s not innocent in this charade. Whatever comes from it comes from it, no matter what I do I lose so I was respectful and took the high road. I think that’s part of why she’s so pissed off. I did copy my brother and BCC’d my parents so time will tell. Tonight I don’t have much to do around the house and after my P90X I plan to go to bed. I at least have the stress of my response off my back. Food has been great today and I plan to keep it that way, I’m feeling slim today and I want to keep that going.
DH wasn’t feeling well Monday and went home early so he picked the kids up from DC as I was heading home. I didn’t have anything to do, it’s amazing how no kids around means boredom, so I went to the garden to pick all of my tomatoes and pumpkins. I have a lot of green tomatoes but they’ll ripen and my pumpkins produced 1 decent size, 1 baby (this is L’s), and 4 small. The kids came back to help me clean the mud off and then I put them in the house. Good thing too because the temp was 25 degrees this morning. My mom then called me and I went over what I said in the letter to W, she was BCC’d so she can read it herself, and then I started making dinner. It was skillet lasagna and the kids wolfed it down but I had to use shell pasta and it took forever to cook. Actually some of the shells were still a little hard so not a great dinner. The kids played for a bit while I cleaned up the kitchen and prepped lunches and breakfast. L didn’t fall asleep quickly and was still up when we put B to bed. B then got in trouble (light sabers taken away for the night) because he crawled in her bed. The tears flowed over his light sabers. He was watching Star Wars before bed and as he watched Vader and Luke duel he fought DH, it was pretty cute even though I don’t like Star Wars. DH and I did our P90X and overall I had a great day with food and water so no complaints.
L was up early Tuesday so I got her settled with a show while I finished getting ready. The kids and I got some great cuddles and we had a wonderful morning. It was hard for me to get up but once I did I was full of energy. I didn’t even have my normal cup of coffee once I got to work, what’s going on with me? I have to swing by the grocery store on my way home and there are a few things to do around the house tonight but nothing pressing. The day has been chilly and lunch was high 30’s but the warm sun felt great and C and I took a decent walk. Things were great until I went to my car after work. Someone backed into my car and drove off, a hit and run is just what I needed! My paint is scratched and there’s a dent causing my headlight to protrude a little bit, awesome! Campus police came so I could have a report in case insurance needed it and then I was on my way home. After the grocery store I met the family at home and we played with the neighbors before heading in to make pancakes. I think being off the pill is helping with my hunger because I haven’t been near as hungry as normal the past couple days and it’s been great. I folded laundry and made granola bars while DH and B watched Star Wars, our typical wait for L to fall asleep, then DH and I did Plyo once B was in bed. We had some time before bed so I made the guest bed and then hit the hay.
Today DH went to the cabin to cut and collect firewood. I’ve been busy and C walked the parking lot with me at lunch looking for a bumper wearing my red paint. Didn’t find it but at least I tried. I hope to have time after exercising to start on my weekly chores because the weekend is fast approaching and I want most everything taken care of by the time I go to bed on Friday. It doesn’t help that the weekend is fairly busy, just how I like it even if I complain.
I am on the ball this week, it’s almost scary really but a relief in a no stress kind of way. I deserve it after my stressful SIL encounter. I dropped the Halloween party invitations off at DC when I picked the kids up. I’ve been meaning to do this all week but DH has been picking them up. We then headed home and DH was piling firewood so we all helped until the neighbors came over and then we played until it was past time to get dinner started. Both kids ate all the quesadillas, first time, and then it was the bed time routine. L was really cute while we laid in bed for a bit. She counted to 9 and then sang her ABC’s, of course messing up on the standard l m n o p. I love that time because she tells me what’s on her mind, usually about not looking at her privates or underwear or of course S & C, and she has my full attention. I hope this lasts for years. Last night she talked about how biting was no-no’s, let’s hope she remembers that the next time she wants to chomp on someone. B was watching Star Wars when I came out to the living room, he states he’s Bobafet, so I dusted and cleaned the windows. I also had to do a quick load of laundry because the jacket I wanted to wear had gum on it, luckily it came out easily. Once B was in bed we did our P90X and I upped my weights to 10’s for most of it. I was burning. I then watched a little bit of TV before heading to bed.
We have a presentation from noon-2 that I’ve organized and we get free lunch. I asked the rep to get me a GF crust and since we know each other well I’m sure it will be there. If not I’m going hungry because I didn’t bring a back up. Since I’m working through lunch for this I’ll leave early today and hit Costco. If I have enough time I may even stop at the house to clean a bit before getting the kids. We have Yoga tonight so 1.5 hours will be spent doing that and I need to get the kids to bed early. I want to get the bathroom cleaned tonight and maybe get a load of laundry done.
No lunch for me yesterday. When the pizzas came in J was presenting so I couldn’t ask if one was GF and none looked GF so I just passed. Once it was all over I had ½ a Trio bar and a latte for lunch, I was hungry come dinner time. I did my Costco trip before getting the kids and found some ghost lights to put in the yard. I then got the kids and we played with the neighbors until it was past time to get dinner started. Luckily with just hamburgers it wasn’t too time consuming. I did clean out the fridge while dinner cooked, there was some gross stuff in there. L was over tired and fought sleep, I kept hoping she’d just fall asleep but nope. While B and DH watched the last of the Star Wars (original) I cleaned the bathroom and then B went to bed. It was Yoga night and this seems to be a theme but the kids kept bothering us. I only did about 40 min because I spent some time with them in the bathroom because they had to do. It was just frustrating and I couldn’t rightfully get into it. I did some blog picture e-mailing and then went to bed.
Both kids were up at 6 so we got some extra cuddles in and had a nice morning. My goal tonight is to get the house cleaned, exercise, and prep dinner and sides for tomorrow. We have a playgroup in the morning and then we’ll do McD’s for lunch. I’ll have a little bit of time to prep but our dinner guests will be over at 5. I really like N and hope our families mesh well together. Sunday I plan to stay home and work on baking. The kids have requested goldfish and I need to make muffins so that will keep me busy. And the basement needs some work, big surprise.
I was very disappointed to see a gain on the scale today after a great week with food. I’m hoping it’s a fluke but it sure isn’t encouraging. The panic of, I can’t lose any more weight, hit but I know that’s BS so I’ll keep pushing through.
I had a great weekend and was really productive, that’s a nice way to start a work week. Friday I was able to swing by Oak Street and I found some new goodies while I picked up chicken strips so we could have General Tao’s for dinner. I even had time to run home and clean the kitchen before picking the kids up, it was fantastic. The kids were tired and it was windy out so we didn’t play outside but the kids were happy to watch a movie and snack on chocolate and yogurt covered pretzels. I was able to make dinner and prep the ribs for Saturday. I gave the kids baths after dinner and then it was off to bed for them. DH and I got in our P90X workout and then I cleaned the floors and put together the corn on the cob and apple coleslaw dishes.
Saturday the kids were up at 6:30 and I got them settled in front of a movie so I could sneak another hour of sleep in. I was a bit crabby and got on DH a bit, which I apologized for and because he’s sweet he didn’t hold it against me. L and I were a bit surprised when we found the neighborhood bunny on our front porch looking in our window. We then watched it tool around the steps and it kept going under the porch, I think we may have a bunny living under there. That would explain why everyone says they keep seeing it in our yard. I would guess it’s because we don’t have pets unlike every other house in the neighborhood. We went to the Dino park for a playgroup and it was sprinkling a bit but the kids had fun. After 45 min we headed to McD’s with S & A for lunch and then home for naps. L went down quickly and after I prepped more for dinner B and I laid down for him to rest. We both fell asleep but I was able to sneak out without waking him once I woke up. Of course I thought I had time to myself but then L was up and at the door. We did get outside for a bit and I raked three leaf piles, still more to fall, while she helped. DH got home and met us with a freshly woken up B and since I needed to wrap things up for our guests I went inside. We had a great time with N & her family. Her husband is really nice and I hope he and DH got along, both are a bit more on the quiet side, but compared to me most people are on the quiet side. T and B got along great fighting with light sabers and her daughter seemed to enjoy L since she played with her for a bit. Quite a bit of an age difference but all in all a lot of fun. When we were eating B said he was still waiting for the cop to show up (M is a cop), we got a good chuckle out of it and explained to him that M is a cop he’s just not wearing his uniform. After the kids were in bed DH and I watched an I Survived then had some quality time. Afterwards I got a little nervous about our lack of preparedness, after all I “should” be ovulating around this time and we did want to wait a month before letting it happen. If it happens it happens. I’m hoping it doesn’t quite yet but it’s out of my hands now. It also doesn’t help that I haven’t taken my temp for a few days so I have no idea where I’m at.
I didn’t sleep well Saturday night but the kids did sleep until 7:15 and then DH started a movie for them so we could sleep a bit more. They are so cute coming into the bedroom to whisper hi and good morning to me. We had a great Sunday with nowhere to go and nothing that needed to be done. Once we were all ready for the day we went for a walk then the kids played outside while I raked again and composted leaves. I also trimmed the trees and started digging up carrots but didn’t quite have the patience. We had a late lunch and then L went down for a nap and I started cleaning up the tree limbs. N and the girls stopped by and B came outside so they played until 4. I was planning to get a run in but since they were over it didn’t happen. Once inside L woke up and we made goldfish crackers, GF/DF and not too bad. I think they need some garlic powder to give them a kick but the kids couldn’t stop eating them so I think they were successful. I did learn they can’t be baked as long as my dairy filled recipe. The kids then played outside and I forced myself to sit for 20 min while I drank a latte and watched tv, it was nice. Dinner was leftovers turned into burritos then it was off for baths while I put laundry away. L sang songs to me while we were laying in bed, she’d then tell me what to sing and stop me part way through so she could finish it. B wanted attention but DH was tired so I had him help me make granola bars. He was tired and started crying when oatmeal was spilled, I made a joke and all was well, poor kid. Once he was in bed we did our Kenpo workout and then I shampooed the carpet in the living room area. It looks great and went faster than I expected so my goal is to hit a portion of the main living area each night this week. I would love for it to be cleaned by this weekend leaving only our room and the kids’ room.
Today has been decent and I have to do a couple stops before heading home. DH is getting off early so he’s going to pick the kids up. We have yoga tonight and then I plan to clean part of the carpet in the dining room, tomorrow night I’ll hit the other side of the table. Lots of little things to do around the house but I’m feeling great again this week so it should all be doable.
DH picked the kids up so I was able to pick up some Halloween things and then swing by the grocery store before heading home. I was high anxiety leaving work, due to some issues with a woman that includes her trying to outsource our work, I’m not happy with the conniving she’s doing. Then before I was in her “area” and my cubicle neighbor was let go, never a good feeling for anyone. The kids played outside for a bit with the neighbors then we headed in to make dinner. I was able to get part of the dining room carpet cleaned before B went to bed and then we did our P90X and it was bed time after that.
I put the dining room back together and dishes put away before the kids got up so this morning was rocking. My day has gone fast and I started counting calories again so I know what I can have the rest of the day, structure is my friend. The scale has been steady but I want it to go down so I need to focus. We have Core Synergistics tonight and I plan to clean the other half of the dining room carpet plus hopefully get some organizing done in the basement.
Productiveness is my middle name this week, which is good because I have a lot to do. DH said he’d pick the kids up so I ran to Costco to get gas and a few necessities. Once home I put things away and then joined the family outside while they played with the neighbors. We headed inside at our normal time and I made dinner then got the kids in the bath, they didn’t want DH to bathe them because he “hurts” them. I’m sure my yelling at them when they didn’t listen made them rethink their decision. I had been doing so well with not yelling and I wasn’t pleased with myself. Once L was in bed B played Mario Kart and I cleaned the remaining dining room carpet. B went to bed and we did our core workout then I went downstairs to clean. I organized and put things where they belong, flattened cardboard for recycling, cleaned the guest room and bathroom, and moved some of the furniture so movement is a bit easier down there. It was after 10 by the time I finished but at least it’s done. I was happy with everything I had accomplished.
I almost slept late this morning so I was hustling and wound up ready for the day earlier than I expected. I put the dining room back together and put dishes away before the kids were out of the room at 6:05. We had some great cuddles and L wanted to get dressed early, worked for me. I was able to put some of their toys and books away and water the plants before we sat down for breakfast. Tonight I have a Scentsy party for L at DC and I plan to leave at 8 so DH and I can still get our exercise in and I can continue my cleaning spree. I need to start cleaning and I want to finish shampooing the carpet so I have plenty to keep me busy tonight. Anything not done tonight will be done tomorrow so no procrastination!
I did terrible with food last night so my goal today is to stick with my food plan and stay on track. This may be hard with the Scentsy party since I don’t know what to expect there but I’ll do my best. My temps are still wonky so I have no idea what my body’s up to. At this point I’ll just wait for AF to show in 1.5 weeks.
Yeah for Thursday but boo for all the work I need to do the next couple of days. Last night I had the kids go inside right away because I wanted to get started on dinner and everything else. They watched some TV while I made dinner, prepped lunches, and dusted the house. S picked me up for the party and we had fun, I didn’t have anything to eat or drink so I was happy with that. I found a Griz Scentsy warmer that I got for K for Christmas and got myself a wall plug-in warmer. I was home by 8:10 surprising both B and DH. Once B was in bed we did our P90X workout then I shampooed the rest of the carpet in the living area. I’ll do the hallway and master Sunday or next week and the kids’ room will be done on the 2nd. I also folded a load of laundry and then went to bed.
We had a nice morning and I’m making the favorite casserole for dinner so I’ll have some happy campers on my hands. We’re doing core again tonight, we had to rearrange the workouts to remove stretch since Friday and Saturday we’ll get nothing done with my parents here. I will finish cleaning the house and fold the load of laundry I washed and dried this morning. All I’ll have left to do for the weekend is meals and that will be easy. I am going to try a peanut butter krispies bar, hopefully it’s as good as it sounds.
It was a beautiful day so the kids played outside for a bit with the neighbors then we headed in to get dinner going. I felt completely overwhelmed as I was running a bit late, dropped my favorite spatula behind the oven, over cooked the macaroni, and had the kids demanding things from me left and right. I stated I was not in the mood and everyone was tip toeing for a bit. After dinner DH rushed the kids to their baths and I cleaned things up from dinner and got clothes out. I was able to get the kitchen cleaned before B went to bed and he helped me a bit here and there. DH asked him if he could have any toy what would he get. His answer “a toy machine that can make any toy in the world”. Nice answer. DH wasn’t feeling well so he decided to skip exercise and I wanted to finish cleaning so I skipped too, not the best decision. I finished cleaning the house and decided to go to bed but DH asked if I’d watch an I Survived in the bedroom so that’s how we ended the night.
My alarm didn’t go off this morning, I’m tired of both alarms not being reliable, so I woke up 20 min late. DH had been awake for an hour so he got up with me and my hair is in a pony tail since I didn’t have time to do it. L was happy to have her daddy wake her this morning and he got big hugs compared to my normal pouts with “no touch me”. B and I cuddled and DH and L cuddled so it was a great start to the day. My parents are supposed to get here by 4 and DH and my dad will start working on the basement. I hope the drywall can be finished for good after this weekend. I’ll be home at my normal time and then we’ll have salmon cakes for dinner and just hang out. Saturday we plan to do the pumpkin patch and take my parents to Vera Fare. Other than that nothing major planned. I do need to spend time on Sunday prepping for the Halloween party. I’ll make the cupcakes and possibly start the pumpkin pies. I also need to finalize my food and drink list and get shopping. It should be a nice weekend.
I don’t remember if I mentioned this but MIL said Thanksgiving dinner will be a buffet at a hotel in BT. I hate buffets on holiday’s and of course my first worry is what the hell will we eat. I e-mailed the hotel stating our food issues and asked what they serve to see if we can safely eat. I finally got a response today and they didn’t get it all. She stated what they’d have but highlighted the many breads they offer and described the size of the dessert table. Really? I can’t have either one safely so why highlight those? It’s frustrating. I e-mailed again with more specific questions and apologize for the trouble but stated situations like this are really hard for us. We’ll see what the response is, at $27 per adult I hate to spend that much and be able to eat 10% of the food. This whole thing has given me a bad feeling in my stomach but I’m letting DH decide how to proceed. We both already agreed I’d make a GF Thanksgiving dinner at home that weekend so we don’t feel deprived. DH is obviously concerned about the buffet because he said we’d do it on Thanksgiving and go up to the cabin that weekend. I told him I thought we’d do the dinner on Saturday so we can still see all his family on Thanksgiving and we can just bypass the buffet portion and have a dinner with just the 4 of us in our hotel room. Turkey sandwiches could work. He’s going to think about it, I want this to be his decision because it’s his family. I feel bad but I’m also put off that MIL didn’t stop to consider the issues a buffet brings up for us. Normal holiday meals bring concerns but at least we can ask family what things contain and I can make our own safe foods to bring so we aren’t left out. Even if we do the buffet I’ll just have to limit the food and pray we don’t get hit. After B’s glutening last Thanksgiving, by MIL, I’m a little gun shy.
It’s been a long time since I’ve updated and it’s because I’ve been busy and also too lazy to rehash everything that’s gone on, but I’ll do my best. I left off right before my parents came up for the weekend. We had a great visit with them and hit the pumpkin patch. It was laid back and not busy, guess that’s due to it being so close to Halloween, and we all had fun. My dad even went on the tractor ride with us and B drove the tractor the whole way there. L wanted nothing to do with it once she got up there, next year I think she’ll be cool with it. Other than hanging out that weekend DH and my dad finished framing the closet downstairs and dry walling, woot! Now we need to get someone to tape and texture.
That week at work flew by especially since I stayed home for two days with B because he had a fever that was on and off of 102+. Figured it’d happen right before Halloween. The Halloween party at DC was Friday afternoon and MIL met us to see L dance. They danced to the Monster Mash and she did really well for being such a little squirt. At one point she had a look on her face that made me think she was going to bolt but she held strong and finished the routine. She was so short she needed Jen (the teacher) to help her use the trampoline. The kids then decorated pumpkins and we headed home so they could get their treats from MIL. We spent the evening carving pumpkins, I again cleaned them all out for everyone, not the most enjoyable job ever. Both kids did great drawing decorations and B used one of the carving tools for the first time, I was proud but nervous. That Saturday we had the Halloween party with 10 kids that showed up. They are all so well behaved it didn’t seem like that many at all. It was great fun and the adults seemed to appreciate the adult beverages I had available. The kids played outside for quite a bit then played inside before we decorated cupcakes and did the pumpkin hunt. Everyone left shortly after that but A was up with S & C so they stayed the night with us. I had a horrible headache from the beginning of the party and it stuck with me through Sunday morning, boo! We had a relaxed morning with A and the kids then had a quick lunch after more cupcakes before they headed out.
The week after that I had Election Day off and it was productive. The kids went to day care and I shampooed their carpet, ran, got the oil changed, had my ring checked, started Christmas shopping, enjoyed a quiet lunch, went grocery shopping, and got a massage. The day was fantastic but wore me out. That weekend we did a play group at Arts on Fire and the kids had a great time painting plates for the grandparents and bowls for DH. Once home L took a nap and B and I were in the living room zoning when the city came by to flush out the fire hydrant. B ran grabbed his rain boots and was loving the excitement. I worked on raking, one of the 4 times I raked the yard this year, until S and A showed up for a play date. The boys played with S and I drank wine and ate snacks before we all had stew and called it a night.
Last week I had Veteran’s Day off and decided to stay home for the day. I spent my morning making GF/DF kringla and was cleaning/baking more when S called to see if I wanted to do lunch. I rushed to get showered and dressed so I could pick her up from work. We had a nice lunch at Over the Tapas and then I was back home to clean the house and do laundry. It’s a glamorous life I lead. It was a nice day though and very productive.
Last weekend I had my jewelry party and had a great turnout. The kids played the Wii while we did the party and chatted. I was exhausted by the time it was over and DH and I watched Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, it was an entertaining flick. Sunday was errands and chores so nothing too exciting to report. Other than I’ve eaten way too much the past two weeks and my arse has bloated to a number I’m not happy with. I’m back to counting calories and trying to keep my protein uptake high in hopes that I can drop this weight and keep the cravings at bay.
Tomorrow we’re heading to Msla for the Built to Spill Concert. I’m really excited, can’t beat seeing my favorites. We’re staying at J’s and they’re watching the kids for us so it should be nice. Thursday we’ll come back home and I plan to do laundry and clean the house. Friday I have a wine tasting I’m going to with the Wine Club ladies and then Saturday B has N’s b-day party to attend. L and I will hang out also, I told his mom I’d be happy to help with anything if needed. After that it will be home for naps and I’ll watch what I can of the Cat/Griz game while probably getting some baking in. Other than errands and organizing closets and the pantry my weekend won’t consist of too much.
L has been taking baby steps with the potty training. I'm not pushing her at all since her personality is one to be in charge and she'll do this when she wants to. She did her first poop on the potty the weekend my parents were up and we celebrated. B even gives her hugs and says how proud he is of her. A little over a week ago she told me she had to poop so we sat on the potty and she produced and she'll do it now and then with pee also. I'd love for her to be trained but I'm not in a hurry on this so I'm letting her run the show. One of these weekends we'll give the full on training a try but it won't be until after the holiday season.
On the off BC front my hormones are going crazy, I have the zits to prove it. I can’t get sex off my mind, not that DH is complaining, but then I’m a crabby patty for no reason what so ever. Oh the fun! I’ve been charting my temps and it seems that I o’d on Friday. This should be good timing as we DTD the day before and after. The thing that really threw me for a loop is that on Friday I was spotting all day long. I think/hope it was ovulation spotting but that’s never happened to me before so I’m really unsure. So I’m planning to test the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This was the same time I tested for L’s pregnancy but I’m really wanting an August baby, 3 birthday’s in July would be a bit much.
