CD: 40....seriously??? *sigh*...
FEELING.... EMOTIONALLY: good! PHYSICALLY: also good! slight upset stomach from eating pizza last night..ugh..shouldn't of done that! lol! (i rarely eat anything greasy-so it kicks my butt when i do!!)

ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE DAY: its only 10:30 and my grocery shopping is already done!

STRUGGLE/FRUSTRATION OF THE DAY:when i woke up this morning i noticed my dog,jasmine, was upset about something..turns out she has in impacted anal gland and needs to go the vet today to get some antibiotics.....*sigh* ...shes had one before so i know its not a big deal to take care of it...but my poor girl is uncomfortable

TO END ON A POSITIVE NOTE.... a friend of mine is officially TTC at the same time as me!!! HOORAY!! our converstaions are hilarious now cause they usually start out with "this is probably TMI, but....." LOL!! we were talking about EWCM the other day and i just found it so hilarious that we sat there talking about it for probably 10 minutes, hahahah!

and thanks stefanie! ive signed up for FF ...havn't had a chance to do much on it yet, but im workin on it! lol!! ..and isn't acupuncture awesome? once the needles are in its so relaxing to just lay there with nothing to do...my acupuncturist has aromatherapy and soft music going and its just amazing...lol! ...and since it can help me with regulating my cycle and fertility-BONUS!

Hey Tara, I am so sorry your body is frustrating you!!
Sending you some AF
I hope she comes, so you can start brand new....

As for the cabbage rolls.. yummy!! one of my faves.. my parents make really good ones, I can't roll them up.. so I just go over to my parents house or they bring them to me
kudos to you for being able to make them.. and I wish my neighbour had a garden because he's generous too!! hahaha

Happy Tuesday!!!

How did the cabbage rolls go?? And how exciting that you have a friend TTC while you are! None of my friends were anywhere near that phase of life when we started!

And I hope you get some answers and/or an end to this cycle asap!! I know how frustrating they can be, for sure!

Here's some cycle ending dust for you!!

Thanks ladies!! i think im gonna gather up all that dust and sleep in it tonight! lol!! c'moooonnn AF!! lol!

the cabbage rolls turned out amazing! thanks for asking jackie!! it was my first time making them, so it was a little rough going...not so much cabbage 'rolls' but more of a little lump of beef rice and cabbage spun around it,hahahahaha!!!!!! so there yah go justyna! you dont need to learn how to roll them, its all in how they end up tasting! lol!!! we had a blast making them! andrew came out a couple times to see what the commotion was about cause we would be laughing away,hahah!
it was a nice end to the day for sure, and having my friend there was nice cause we got to vent about coming off BC.....and she also brought me chocolate cheesecake to help fix the crappy day i had!! (musta worked cause i dont feel like strangling anyone anymore,hahaha!)

annnnyways, yeah!! we're going to go swimming tonight (i hope murphys law doesn't bite me in the butt and send AF then!!! cause that would SO be my luck,hahah!) and yah! day off tomorrow, probably gonna go for a hike... and maybe some gardening too.....yuppers!!

What a great friend you have I had a ttc friend irl for 9 months, then she got pregnant and is due in October. The cabbage rolls sound good-- I haven't had those in a while...

I really really hope your PMS goers away soon and af comes-- tons of for af. However, I do hope you had a chance to go swimming.

I really need to get out of Florida because I am really starting to get jealous listening about everyone going hiking. I bet its GORGEOUS where you are. Enjoy your gardening and hike.

Are you going to add a FF ticker to the bottom of your siggy we we can stalk?? I know there is not much yet but in preparation for when there is?

lol sam! but im jealous of your beaches!!!

...ive tried to get my ticker started...but it just says chart not updated ??? the only info ive put in is the dates of my last period, so maybe it needs more info or something? in the calendar view it says today is CD 43, which is correct....but i can't see what else i could possibly enter cause i have nothing to report, lol! (i just put it in my signature-but it doesn't seem to be updating automatically or anything...)

*EDIT*....i may have just answered my own question.....just to test a theory i put today as starting my period and the ticker automatically updated to CD1..sooooo mine will sit as chart not updated untill AF shows! so stay tuned for it to read "CD1" lol!!

Yay! Glad you figured out your ticker! And glad that the cabbage rolls went well! I get so nervous trying something new! (see my journal for the debacle involving me and a whole chicken ).

I so hope that AF arrives asap (but, after your hike! )

Have a great day off!

Hi Tara, I think your absolutely right.. who cares how they look as long as they taste great!! I am glad yours turned out great whether they were lumps or not. Funny how we have been speaking about Cabbage rolls, my parents just made some and my mom is coming over tomorrow to bring me some!!! so I get to have some too!!!

Glad your Canada day has been productive!!
The bloating might have been from the cabbages .. I get like that too after eating cabbage rolls.

Your too funny, hope you enjoyed the bowl of ice cream!!! xoxoxo

Hooray for figuring our your chart!! I bet if you put something, like bloating, in for the day you have it, it'll update your ticker to the cycle day. I think if you don't have anything input after like 2 weeks, it says not updated, but if you update "something" in it, it'll act like it's active. Just a thought!

I hope you have a great weekend, Tara- and those cabbage rolls sound so yummy! One of my favorite meals!

hmm..interesting thought Juice!! ive had bloating a little for the past couple days...which would be the days i ate left overs of cabbage rolls!! who knows....but either way i hope you enjoy your cabbage rolls!

Thx Deb! and i did enjoy it....very much! lol!!

Thx for stopping by jen!! thx for the comment on my babies , i think theyre pretty cute too,hahaha! and awww, i love greyhounds!! sorry to hear about your oldest one though thats always so hard....but atleast they leave us with wonderfull memories and pawprints on our hearts

and thanks for the idea jackie!! i actually have everything written down in a book about how i felt that day...so ill transfer all that into FF tonight and see what happens




CD: 45

FEELING.... EMOTIONALLY: feeeeelin finnne,lolPHYSICALLY: good if this headache would go away!

ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THE DAY: i booked a doctor appointment for the end of the month for checking out why AF is still in hiding......my theory is if i have an appointment booked then shes bound to show up now and make me cancel my appointment! lol!!

STRUGGLE/FRUSTRATION OF THE DAY: warning i keep getting the feeling 'down there' that AF has shown up...only to run to the bathroom and fnid a little glob of CM...why do i have so much freakin CM!!! grrr!!!!! its only confusing me more!!

TO END ON A POSITIVE NOTE.... my day is almost over.....its been crazy at work so im looking forward to relaxing on the couch.....

EDIT: so ive been reading up on this CM that i have (kinda wet/mostly creamy) and from what i can tell that means fertile CM or just about to get AF...either way..hooray!! lol!!

Hi Tara!
re cabbage rolls - my parents are pro at making those!! If you have an eastern European deli near you, ask them for the pickled cabbage leaves and use those, YUM!! Or if you decide to use fresh leaves, cook the leaves first to soften them a bit and they will stay around the meat!

Hope you're having a great day!! oh and Happy HST Day!
