Vajayjay / Festivus

I posted this on the board, but you know how it is, when something's bugging you it helps to let it out wherever you can, right? (BTW, thanks to Jen & M for responding, you really did make me feel better!)

I'm still a little nervous about this weird spotting. I shouldn't even call it spotting, it was just 2 little tiny drops of blood when I wiped first thing this morning and since then my CM has been all clear. I'm hoping it was just caused by our marathon BD session 2 days ago, which left me sore and a little inflamed, followed by more BD last night despite my still being a little sore. Of course I googled it, found out that HPV can cause cervicitis, and subsequently freaked out.

But, I decided to be logical (and not like the doorknobs on the GYN board) and made an appt with my doctor this afternoon. I don't want to end up ruining my weekend by worrying for days. And you know I will!


Tomorrow is Beer Fest! Well, officially, VD Beer Festivus for the Rest of Us Invitational. (VD is for our last name, not an advertisement of our STD status!) I'm not sure if I've told you why we're doing this. Ya see, there's a big beer tasting festival in Avila Beach, about 2 hours north of where we live, every Memorial Day weekend. It is a HUGE hit (mostly because it's right next to a college town) and tickets sell out immediately after they go on sale. Last year we bought ours on cra.ig.slist for twice the face value, plus we got a hotel room, so we ended up spending around $300. BUT, it was a GREAT time, and we would definitely have gone again. Except this year ticket prices went up - way up - to almost twice as much as last year. And they're also limiting attendees to 14 tastings. That sounds like a lot, but it ends up being about 4 or 5 beers in a 5 hour timeframe, which to us is not worth $100+ per ticket. Turns out our friends felt the same way, and none of them are going either.

Well, we thought, we love entertaining, and although we have a tiny house, we do have a BIG backyard... Thus, Beer Festivus for the Rest of Us was born! Apparently there has been quite a buzz about it among hubs' friends, but you wouldn't know it by the RSVPs! I'm trying to train everyone in hubs' world to RSVP to stuff, but they're slow to catch on. I think we're expecting about 20 people, but who knows? I hope it's more, but I'll be happy as long as everyone has a good time.

I still have room on my disposable camera from our anniversary trip, so I'll take some pics and post them all together when I get them developed. Stupid old-fashioned technology!! (Or stupid me for forgetting my camera... Yeah, that's probably more accurate.)

OMG, I'm so busy laughing at "VD Beer Festivus" that I can't read the rest of your post... LMAO!!!!!!

I hope the spotting was just a result of gettin' it on. I love Google and I hate Google.
