  • @gingermama29 I’m glad the service went well all things considered. The family time is always therapeutic for me when a loved one passes as well. Happy to have you back here this week! ❤️
    @featherheather gorgeous dresses!!! The weather sounds so perfect! What the heck was the DJ’s excuse though?!? I would have been livid!

    WAYDTGKU: going to try and be more consistent with temping and vitamins this cycle

    R/R: AF showed up an hour after I got to work this morning. What a B. I had been really really hoping that I would have baby news for hubby on Friday because that’s his birthday. I had literally woken up to nausea and vomiting at 5am on Sunday so that made me annoyingly hopeful. Must have been something I ate at the bonfire I went to.  
    Oh well. I am trying to look on the bright side - for one, my LP this cycle was 12 days where as last cycle it was only 10 and that was making me a little nervous since it was on the short side. Also was happy to see that my cycle length has been consistent so far since getting IUD removed so that’s something. And the other silver lining was that I had put on like 7 lbs over the holidays and now I have more time to get that back off (and hopefully more). 

    CS/Q: Nothing to see yet.

    @feather_heather I'm glad everything went well at the wedding aside from the DJ. But you and your husband saved the day! I'm loving the color scheme in that picture. The gold, white and dark green are gorgeous together. I'm sorry its CD2 for you.

    @gingermama29 I know I've said this but it's worth repeating: I'm so sorry for your loss. I am amazed by your strength to be able to sing at the funeral.

    @kpearse99 We are actually going to Orlando for MH bday this weekend so I  have that to look forward too! 😊 I’ve also decided that since AF is currently torturing me with cramps, I deserve to buy myself lunch. There’s this amazing salad place right by my office so now I’m looking forward to that also! Lol. 
    Where did you go to look for Vday decorations?? I feel like Kohl’s, Target, and Michael’s always have good stuff! I know I saw the stuff already out at Target and Michael’s this weekend.

  • @krystrist2014 - He said he had a meeting that ran late and then he had to go home to get all of the stuff. This is why you don't use friendors! 

    @kpearse99 - He was a friend of theirs and was already doing it for $750, and on the phone he said that he's going to give them a discount for being late. The groom handed me $500 at the end of the night (which I thought was still too much) to give to him. I walk over and he goes, "okay is this $650?" I said "no, it's $500 and that is all you're getting" and walked away.

    R/R: Happy Monday! We had a really good weekend and now I’m ready to get this week started (so we can get to the next weekend, of course)! ☺️ We are keeping up with the healthy habits this week, and I’m so excited about it! I just feel better and I’m looking forward to seeing more progress on the scale and just feeling more energetic! 

    CS/Q: None, haven’t starting temping yet.

    @gingermama29 So glad you were able to make the most of a very difficult situation by spending so much time with family! Still sending hugs your way! 💜

    @feather_heather that’s crazy about the DJ but kudos to you & YH for saving the day!! Beautiful dresses!! So glad the weather cooperated and it all went well (despite the DJ mishap)! 

    @bserena glad your wisdom teeth removal went well and you are already feeling better! Hopefully the soreness goes away quickly! 

    @krystrist2014 so sorry to see you back over here, but good for you for looking at the silver lining! Hope you enjoy the weekend celebrating YH’s birthday! 

    @kpearse99 so glad you had a good weekend, and that weather sounds amazing! It was rainy & windy here, but still way warmer than you’d expect in January! Hope you can find some Valentine’s decorations soon! 

    @legendairymomma sorry for CD1, but yay for hitting the reset button on your cycle...hope this one goes MUCH better than last cycle!

    R/R: I think I'm finally over the cramps and migraines and I'm feeling good today!  Plus I can have sex tonight so that's always a plus.  Got up and did my yoga (Yoga with Adriene on YouTube in case anyone needs a yoga recommendation - she's amazing!) so I feel like today started off on the right foot.  

    CS/Q: nope!

    @gingermama29 So sorry for your loss.  I admire your strength to be able to sing at a funeral like that.  I'm sure your grandma appreciated it.

    @feather_heather Those dresses are gorgeous.  And 2 1/2 hours late holy crap!   Glad it all worked out but how stressful.

    @bserena Wisdom teeth removal can be brutal.  When I had mine out, I was more sick from the anesthesia than in pain from the actual procedure though.  Glad you're feeling better and you have that behind you!

    @krystrist2014 Sorry for CD1.  :( But yay for a longer LP this time around!

    @kpearse99 60's in January!?  I'm super jealous.  We've got snow in our forecast all week and I'm not a fan.  Hope you were able to enjoy the weather.

    @legendairymomma Happy new year!!!  

    @bluetickgal What are you doing in terms of healthy habits?  I started doing yoga at the beginning of the month and I'm loving it.  I'm glad you had a good weekend and that you're seeing some progress from your healthy habits.

    R/R: I have had a pounding headache for 3 straight days and I don’t know why!! It needs to go away. Caffeine, ibuprofen, nothing is getting rid of it. I’m annoyed because I was planning on cutting back on caffeine starting this week just in case I get KU soon, but I’m not about to try that when I already have a headache.

    @gingermama29 I am so sorry for your loss. How incredible that you were able to sing at her service! 
    @feather_heather beautiful dresses!! Wow, that DJ really had the nerve to expect $650 after being that late?? You’re right, even $500 was too much! 
    @krystrist2014 sorry about AF!! What a witch. 
    @bluetickgal Good luck with the healthy habits!! MH and I have been trying to do the same and it’s hard but hopefully worth it!

    @kitkatz1990  Headaches really suck. Sorry yours has lasted so long. Personally, smoking a little pot is the only thing I have ever found that gets rid of a persistent headache quickly. It's not for everyone though. Good luck on the caffeine front- I'm trying to cut back as well. 
    linzrunzkitkatz1990
  • @linzrunz glad you are feeling better...sorry AF showed back up and ruined your plans! Good job on doing yoga, glad you are liking it! It’s so much easier to continue an exercise if you enjoy it! We are eating healthier...we do salads for lunch almost everyday and I track everything in MyFitnessPal to make sure I’m in my calorie range to lose weight. Also trying to do something active everyday whether it’s walking when the weather is nice, doing the elliptical, and/or strength training.  
    @kitkatz1990 thanks! Yes, it can be so hard, but should be worth it! So sorry for your headache...I hope it goes away soon, a persistent headache is so awful! 
    @kpearse99 thanks friend! ☺️
    @dancingtreepose sorry for the bloat, hopefully it goes away soon!

  • Thank you all for your kind words. This past week has definitely been difficult.

    @feather_heather congratulations to your sister! How exciting!! And omg to the DJ! I'm glad you were able to cover for him. That's so crazy though.

    @bserena glad your surgery went well. I had mine out this summer so I feel your pain.

    @krystrist2014 ugh sorry for AF. I'm happy for your silver lining though. We have to find those wherever we can in this process.

    @NamelessAria thank you friend 💕. Honestly, my mom giving me a Xanax the morning of the funeral for me anxiety helped immensely. That and not looking at anyone in the church until after I was done singing.

    @kpearse99 glad you had a nice weekend! I've never considered decorating for Valentine's day before.

    @legendairymomma glad your seemingly never ending cycle is finally over. Those are so frustrating.

    @bluetickgal glad you had a great weekend! All the kudos to you for keeping up with the healthy habits! That's awesome and has to feel great.

    @linzrunz thank you. It was difficult but I'm glad I was able to do that for her and for my Grandpa. Glad you're feeling better but booo to AF reappearing.

    @kitkatz1990 sorry about the headache. I hope it went away and you're feeling better!

    @dancingtreepose so sorry for your loss. I hope the bloat goes away quickly for you.

  • @kpearse99 Thanks for the idea, currently soaking in the tub with some wine!! It definitely could be work stress. Come to think of it, it did start on Friday after a particularly bad day. I also think it could be the after effects of having Mirena removed last month, I tend to get hormonal headaches. Stupid Mirena. Never again! 

    @dancingtreepose if only it were legal in my state! With it being illegal it’s not worth losing my teaching license over. Maybe one day. Also, I’m on CD5 too and also SO bloated in my belly!! What’s that all about?? 

    @bluetickgal thanks!! Actually, going to the gym and working out seemed to help my headache a little bit. I was tempted to skip but I want to start the week out right! 

    @gingermama29 thank you, it’s feeling a little better, hope it stays away!
