Gaye, you are going to love that thing. I never thought myself the type to declare my love for an IUD, but I am here to say, Mirena is awesome.
MelW, your jam sounds truly delish, and pickles...sigh. On the farm, I had a wall of pickles in the basement.
Did I mention they updated the aerial maps on Google? Dh discovered that a view of our old place now includes a spring flock of mamas and babies. Double . How did he discover this? Why, monitoring real estate listings for farmettes back home, of course. (It will be a while.)
We are slowly working our way back to normal, with earlier and earlier bedtimes. Last night it was 9, and next I am going to steal a run before administering scantron tests to my kids. Dd was unhappy talking about it last night, but she loses her mind when she's tired. Kids also have their final TKD class and belt testing today, so it will be another long one.
sparkle, perhaps disturbingly, perhaps luckily, my brain chaos already seems to be responding to suppressing ovulation. I haven't settled fully on how I feel about it, except that I also don't have a week of the physical pain of the swelling/bloat of every organ south of my navel. Going to do this a few more months for sure.
