I change shapes just to hide in this place

Big news of the day: AF has finally arrived. Of course she waits until after I buy some HPTs and use one, but whatever. I'm just happy she's here so I can start next cycle. Knowing she is on her way, but not here yet, is the worst. It's an even longer wait than the TWW (yes, it defies science! Or nature. Or Father Time.).

I called my RE and made my CD3 appointment for Thursday. This is the appointment where I'm going to force him to give me some injectibles. I really hope he complies. I might have to break out my bitch face, and I don't really want to have to resort to that.

Buster had an interview this morning! It went really well, and he is pretty sure the guy loved him. I am hoping (yes, understatement of the year) that this works out. It would be beyond wonderful. And it would be wonderful for lots of reasons, not just the money aspect. Buster has been feeling a little down and out, and I know his self-esteem has taken quite a hit these past couple of months. More than anything, I want him to be happy and to feel secure in all aspects of our life. This job would do that.

I had my Weight Watchers meeting today. I did not lose any weight, nor did I gain. I'm actually quite pleased with those results. I had pizza and beer this past weekend, and that can't be great for the waistline. I also had some chili and two (delicious) cornbread muffins on Sunday. So, with my not-so-healthy eating coupled with AF bloat, I expected to gain a pound or two.

I am also seriously considering taking a kickboxing class. Here at work we have a gym, and they sometimes offer classes, such as yoga, spinning, and zumba. Well, starting in a couple Mondays, they are offering a kickboxing class. I've never taken one, but I think it sounds fun, and also a great way to get rid of some frustrations. And some fat. :)

I thought I would post this again, in case there are any new followers who missed it last time. My friend Katie over at Removing Roadblocks has started an Etsy store to help fund their adoption. She makes some beautiful jewelry, and I'm pretty sure she can even make something a bit more custom for you, if you ask her nicely. She is an incredibly sweet woman, and I hope she doesn't have to wait long before her dreams come true.

  9. I'm sorry AF is here :(

    I've thought about kickboxing too because I used to love Tae-Bo back in the day, but I just can't bring myself to take a class in anything! Tell me how it is if you do it!

  10. Hoping your RE listens to you and gives you injectible meds. It does feel like time to start those.
    I hope your husband gets this new job. Fingers crossed for a new job and this cycle.

  13. I did the exact same thing on my last cycle-AF annoyingly late, bought a pack of HPTs and used one, 10 minutes later she was there!
    Hope you don't have to pull out the bitch face and you get your request!
    Ooh go for the kickboxing-you'll love it!It's fun to pound and kick out any frustrations :)

  14. Hi from ICLW--AF always shows up just as your peeing on the $10 stick. What a jerk. At least she has shown though and you can move on to CD3. Hope the appointment goes well!
