Maia- hugs sweetie. I hope everyone is ok. Especially you. Hang in there!
DoK- must be the universe... we're doing pizza too!
minivan land- since we're currently a one car family, and since we live rurally, I've been spending a lot of time in the car getting people to work/school/activities/home. To the tune of 5-6 HOURS a day. And I hate driving. I'm just about done with this whole car thing I think! No driving... that's my goal!
charting/temping- I was a sort of kind of fertility tracker. My cycles are not and have never been regular, so a lot of the traditional fertility signs go right out the window. And I haven't had a so-called full night's sleep in nearly 5 years so temping was never really reliable. My salvation, so to speak, was one of those ferning microscopes (you put a drop of saliva on the lens, when fertile the pattern the saliva makes under the microscope looks like a fern... not fertile it looks like blobs) and a general tracking of cervical mucus and prolapse symptoms.
I'd been wondering about my cycle "re-booting" for the past few months since I was getting more cyclical CM and POP symptoms. I got my first pp AF at about 6 months with dd1, around 9mo with dd2 (while tandem nursing!), so I've been expecting this for a while now. And then a few days ago I was craving salt/grease (not my usual crave) and I wondered even more. It was still a bit of a shock though!
rain- dear lords yes! It's been wild! But right now we have blue skies and puffy clouds. I kind of hope it rains more.
