I had a lovely Thanksgiving and I hope you guys did too. We did a pot luck with Keith’s family. Everyone was in charge of bringing something and I had to bring sweet potato casserole. And when I need a dish to impress I always go to the one place that is full proof and never lets me down: Mom. Once again she delivered:
We also took some family pictures. My sweet little family. I love them!
And now I am enjoying my last day of relaxation before heading back to work tomorrow. I am SUPER excited to be going back to work. I have missed my kids! But I also loved this week of vacation. It felt so good to chill, hang out, not have any work responsibilities.
The other thing I did this week was I started seeing an acupuncturist. She is working on my fertility issues. I didn’t say anything but about a month ago I did my first round of clomid and it didn’t exactly work as well as we had hoped. As in it didn’t make me cycle. So I am trying an alternative method before I take any more synthetic drugs. I just want to try it. If it doesn’t help then I will do another (stronger) round of clomid. But acupuncture (as a whole) has an 80% success rate with fertility and it also can be used during pregnancy for preventative measures (which I obviously need). So I am trying it. Keith and I have also decided to start inquiring about adoption and start filling out paperwork. Just to get that process started because I know it can be lengthy. It feels good to have a plan. To be actively doing something, It makes me feel less broken.
I also did a lot of reading this week. Like for fun. One of my favorite authors is Joshilyn Jackson and I read her latest book, A Grown Up Kind Of Pretty.
As usual she did not disappoint. I loved it. I would always suggest any Joshilyn Jackson book if you ever need a good book to get lost in.
So that was my week. Lots of food, family, and books. P-E-R-F-E-C-T.
What did you do?
