I didn't join in last week because things were a little rough. Luckily, things have turned around a bit since then, and I'm happy to say I have some things to be happy about! :)
For about two weeks after I started taking Clomid this cycle, the side effects were awful. I was a moody mess that felt like crying everyday. Luckily, mid last week the Clomid side effects finally subsided! And I feel awesome! Seriously, I feel like I'm walking on sunshine!
|Yep, that's about right|
My energy is back, I'm happy not weepy, and I don't feel like snapping at everyone all the time! So I'm sure everyone around me is happier too. Luckily, this also came in time for...
Our third anniversary! As I mentioned before, last Wednesday was our anniversary! And we truly had a great time! The hubs sent me a beautiful bouquet of roses at work (even though we had agreed on no presents, haha), we went to a nice restaurant that a friend had recommended that turned out to be great, and after dinner we had some of our favorite wine (that I bought at sprouts of course) and had two little bundt cakes that were the same flavors as our wedding cake! It was a perfect night for us. I forgot to take any pictures, so I'll just share another wedding picture :)
We're getting closer on the new car front! This weekend we finally got out to some dealerships and checked out my top two cars. Though I didn't love the Jeep Cherokee, which I thought was my favorite, I liked the other a lot more than I thought I would. So it looks like our finalist will be the Mazda CX-5.
|isn't it pretty?|
Its the perfect size, great fuel economy, great safety ratings, and the bonus of having technology from this decade :). I'm a little nervous because my family has a history of buying domestic cars, but due to my current car issues I'm a little disenchanted with ford. I still might check our a couple other cars, and maybe give ford a change, just to make extra sure I don't end up with buyers remorse. We also have to figure out what to do with my current car. Unfortunately the offers we've gotten on it for a trade in value have been really low :(. Hopefully it'll work out!
This one isn't as fun as the others, but it was a bright spot of my weekend. So last week I figured out I was going to have to get a blood test on Sunday. No fun, right? Not only did this mean I would have too get a blood test on the weekend, this also meant all the labs around me would be closed. My only option was to go to the inpatient lab at a nearby hospital. I wasn't loving the idea, and was warned that there might be a long wait. All the worry was for nothing though, it turned out to be the best blood draw experience I've had. Though it took me a while to find my way through the hospital, once I made it to the lab, it took a few minutes for them to get my information, then I got my blood drawn and was on my way! So much better than the long lines, waits, and slowness in general from my regular labs. Plus I always get myself a treat (usually a fancy coffee) after any medical tests, so that's always fun. Hey, positive reinforcement is important!
That's all I have for now! See you at the next link up.
