Monday in the doldrums

I am trying not to think about the fact that my parts still don't feel quite right. They feel... sticky. I am trying to convince myself that's because AF is going to show up any minute so I'm dried out or something, and that it is NOT the YI lingering after EIGHT DAYS OF MEDS. My brain needs to just stop already.

I actually had quite a nice weekend. We went to the Reagan Library on Saturday, and that was fun. The Magna Carta was on display, and it was amazing. There were originally 30 copies of it made, back in 1215, and only 4 exist today. It was surprisingly small, maybe only 12" x 12", and written on a piece of sheepskin so thin it looks just like paper. And the writing was SO TINY - probably the equivalent of 5 or 6 point font - and perfectly straight. Crazy. We also got to walk through Air Force One which was really cool. It was in use for 20+ years, so several Presidents have flown on it.

After the Library, hubs and I went to visit my grandma. I felt so bad, she only lives 45 minutes away but I hadn't seen her in over a year, at my grandpa's funeral no less. She was very happy to see us, and didn't even lay on any guilt until we announced that it was time for us to go. Oh well. She is 84 years old and can't move around much anymore, so she gets bored sitting at home all day. My uncle lives with her, and she has a nurse too, so she's not all alone, but still. That has to suck. I get bored being at home for ONE day by myself.

The rest of the weekend was mellow, saw some friends, had dinner with my family yesterday, etc. I had to make sure to spend as much time out of the house as possible, since last weekend was spent entirely indoors feeling miserable! :P

Today is CD29. I don't really feel like AF is going to show up today. I hate it when she takes her time, but I suppose it doesn't really matter this month, since we're starting "summer vacation" as soon as she shows up. It really is kind of a relief, especially with all these YIs, maybe I won't feel as pressured and stressed every time I get one. And I can have some time to figure out what works for me to prevent them. I am trying to drink lots of water, avoid alcohol (especially beer), cut back on starchy and sugary foods, take lots of acidophilus and A.ZO Yeast pills, all cotton undies and loose clothing whenever possible... Ugh. Such a pain. But if it works it's completely worth it.

Anyway, yeah. Just waiting for AF to rear her ugly head! And hoping today speeds by!

Oh I love going and seeing historical things, sounds like a fun weekend! Glad you could reconnect with your Gma too.

I too am feeling mellow. Don't really have any feelings about TTC right now to be honest. Just blah! Maybe this is the calm before the storm of BFPs??? ;)
