If you're not familiar with the Creighton model, yellow stamps help deal with continuous CM, which is a problem of mine. My chart was all white babies (the stickers used for CM). I've almost been charting for a year, but there were some delays in the process. Luckily, things finally came together and we've got these! I'm a little nervous, but I think this is going to help my charts make more sense, so yay!
The Laudate app (for android)(for itunes)! As it is advertised, its the #1 free catholic app. I've had it for at least a year now, and I absolutely love it! Its got everything a catholic needs: prayers, readings, the daily office, rosary and chaplet (with multiple audio choices), a confession guide, and much more! Seriously, look at the menu (stolen from the app page):
Since my car has bluetooth connectivity, I can set up the audio and get some prayers in on the way to work! Its so helpful and great! Seriously, if you don't have the app, you need to download it now!
The paleo/primal diet. Like I've mentioned, a week ago I started easing into the paleo/primal diet. I fit somewhere between the two I think, I'm not exactly sure what all the differences are yet. Anyways, its going well and I've already felt a difference! I feel so much more clear headed and energetic. This weekend I finally had enough energy to do the work my garden needed (I have no idea how any of it stays alive). I've got a ways to go, but its looking much better! So yay for being healthy! Now to buy a scale and see if its making a difference there.
Good friends! With my infertility and the side effects from the meds, it can be hard to be around babies and pregnant women at times. However, one of my good friends is pregnant, and I don't really want to avoid her. Luckily, she's super sweet and could not be better about being delicate about it all with me. I don't feel uncomfortable around her, and I'm so happy that I can spend time with her and be there for her through this.
Bachelorette party! No not mine, that was a while ago. Another good friend's bachelorette party is coming up this weekend, which I've been helping to plan, and I'm excited! I went to the swapmeet this weekend and picked up the cutest flasks for everyone at less than $10 each! They all have this on them:
I love it!
Hope everyone has a good week!
