I'm back! I decided to stay off JM while we were in Arizona, so I'm trying to catch up now. We had a great trip. My grandparents really loved having us there. They live in a retirement community that is really pretty nice - lots of amenities/activities. After we got the tour on Wednesday, we took a scenic drive on the Apache Trail. My grandpa was a chemistry teacher and knows a lot about the geology and such of the area, so we had a great tour guide. On Thursday, we went to Tucson, where my aunt and uncle live. We went to Saguaro National Park and hung out on their amazing patio in the beautiful weather. On the way back to Phoenix on Friday, we stopped at a casino (Scott was the big winner). Later, we were able to meet up with a high school friend of mine that I haven't seen in years, so that was cool. After delicious grilled steaks for dinner, we played cards with grandma and grandpa. They taught us a game called 'hand and foot' that was really fun. The men won that night, but grandma and I won the rematch on Saturday night. Scott and I went to the zoo on Saturday morning. I've been to the San Diego and St. Louis zoos, so this one wasn't overly impressive for me. There was a neat exhibit where you were literally in the cage with the squirrel monkeys. Like, they could jump on your head if the keepers would let them. Pretty cool! Saturday afternoon was the surprise party for grandpa. Scott and I were in charge of getting him to the party, and it worked out really well. He was totally surprised! Before we left on Sunday, we had lunch at a really cool restaurant that has been featured on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives - Joe's Farm Grill. It's literally on a farm where they grow many of their ingredients. Great food and beautiful setting! Arrived back last night to snow and icy roads. Boo.

I didn't temp or anything while on our trip. I did take an hpt the day we left and still had a faint line, so I should still have at least another week or so before I ovulate. We will start the BDing right away though, just in case. I was supposed to get another blood draw on Friday, but we were gone. I should go today, but I don't really feel like leaving the house. Maybe I'll go before work tomorrow. Or maybe I'll just skip it. I'm sure I'm at zero, so why waste my time? We'll see.

Alright, I'm going to try to catch up on what's going on with everyone. Thanks for reading my way too long post!
