Busy Weekend

We had friends over for dinner on Friday, and Saturday my dad came to drop off the stuff we are getting while they are overseas. Some of the things they gave us included their fridge, a stand mixer, tools, a mattress and a dining table. I spent Saturday morning (late morning...I was up late Friday night) going to the farmer's market. The farmer's market was ok. There wasn't any fruit when I got there toward the end, but I did get tomatoes. Afterwards I went to W (the boy that I nanny for)'s second birthday party. I did some cleaning before my dad got in town, and then we spent the rest of the night getting stuff unloaded and put in the house.

A lot of the weekend was spent cooking. I made yogurt in my crockpot, homemade chicken stock, and tomato sauce (all for the first time). Since we were switching out the fridge, I couldn't go grocery shopping until Sunday morning, so it was late last night when I finished up and went to bed. The good news is that I don't have to make tomato sauce or broth again for a while since I made really big batches.

I really haven't been thinking about IF/TTC that much lately. I don't know without looking at my chart when my cycle started or what cycle day I'm on. I'm pretty sure that we have no chance until at least after my surgery, so I've pretty much put it out of my head except when I'm around pregnant women or things like that.

I haven't had any more heavy bleeding, and I think since it was so heavy, it actually caused my period to be lighter than usual.


  1. You did have a busy weekend! I've heard of making yogurt, but am way too chicken to try it. Did it turn out good?

    Not having IF on your mind 24-7 is a blessing, isn't it. Doesn't happen often, I know, but it's great.

  2. Wow! I've never heard of anyone making their own yogurt! Was it difficult?

    Taking your mind off of TTC is a good thing. I wish that I could force myself to not think about it more often!

  3. I hear ya about putting IF/TTC on the back burner...that is totally how I feel. Maybe a "break" is good so after the surgery you'll feel rejuvenated and can feel hopeful again. :) God Bless.
