small favors

to try to change yesterday's mood,

3 things I'm thankful for:

1) having a great boss that lets me work from home sometimes. I woke up feeling like I'm coming down with a cold (the perils of working in a school) and I really want to try to stay nice and healthy for this IUI. So I've worked from home today, got more done than I ever would have at work, and managed to take a nice little nap with my kitty snuggling me. It is amazing what a mental health day can do. I feel like a new woman! (well, a new woman with PMS and a snotty nose but a new woman nonetheless)

2) my HSG in August seems to have cured my spotting problem!!! I used to start spotting at 3-5 DPO and would straight up until my period came. I hated it, it was horrible to know 3 days into my 2ww that the cycle was a bust and then have to wait it out anyway. Now last month I had one little day of spotting at 7 dpo (isn't that a tease) and this month...nothing! I'm either 11 or 12 dpo and haven't had to wear a pantiliner yet! Now of course, that evil little bitch Hope did sneak in this morning and I'll admit to breaking open my HPT stash to POAS this morning to no avail but I'm Ok with it. Just glad one problem got solved. Guess I just needed a good power washing ;)

3) We met with our kitchen guy this morning to finalize everything and write him a nasty big check and as he was leaving he offered to do one of the things we had decided was too expensive and cut from the contract. He said if the rest of the project goes according to schedule and he has the time, he'll knock down 1/2 the wall between our kitchen and dining room to make a breakfast bar. He says he just likes doing that stuff and he thinks it'll look really nice. So here's hoping that everything else goes nice and speedy!

Off to see what else can get done today!!

Free Breakfast Bar??? WA-HOOOO!

Get yourself to Costco and stock up on cereal to celebrate. It's not every day that a man gives you a free breakfast bar.

It is always nice to hear about procedures helping people.

And having a great boss and being able to work from home... I am so jealous!
