    R/R: omg we made it to Friday. I had a little bit of a meltdown yesterday morning before going to work. I was about ready to take 3 days off next week due to how burnt out I felt. Probably going to take off Wednesday or Thursday though to save my soul and because I can afford it. I currently have 12 days of PTO banked so it's not like I need to make sure they're saved up for the holidays. I'm hoping we can go buy some pumpkins for our front stoop this weekend. Will they still look okay in 3 weeks when Halloween actually rolls around?

    CS/Q: I think yesterday was CD1?? I had very minimal cramping but there was a decent amount in my menstrual cup in the evening and this morning so... I guess? Idk, has anyone else had an endometrial biopsy and found the period following was fairly light in comparison to normal? I mean... They did take a massive sample.
