"What's the Scoop?"

Today, I'm on CD26, 15DPO, and... I'm afraid to check. No kidding. I don't even want to go to the bathroom. How long can I hold it I wonder? Seriously though, if this month worked, I gotta say, I'll be totally shocked. I did everything WRONG this month. Heavy lifting? Check. Drinking wine AND cider on two separate occasions? Check. Indulging in rich foods? Check. Forgot my progesterone one night? Check. Crazy hours and insane stress? Check. Travelling out of the country and flying by the seat of your pants? Check. Oh yeah. I did it all. H*ll, I think I even ate... *gasps* deli meats. Oh yes my friends. I am sure I've been the worst of the worst this month.

Regardless, I haven't had much time to dwell on it all. I got back from Minneapolis on Friday evening and I've been going non-stop all weekend. So has my washer for that matter. And hubby and I spent about three hours yesterday washing and waxing the car, doing the detailing, etc. Looks spectacular, but sheesh, I'm wiped!

I have a lot more yet to do before my folks and my two aunts arrive next Wednesday for a 10-day visit. My place has got to be smelling of Javex and so clean you could eat off the floors before I let them set foot in the door. Believe me. They're all in West Virginia right now, visiting my sister and her husband and Mom commented on how my sis smelled of Javex when they walked in the door. But oh how lovely and clean her house is! So I guess I gotta pick up the tumbleweeds of cat fur wafting around my place huh? Crap. Oh well. Life goes on.

Minneapolis was such a blast though! I learned so much, got tons of swag and software samples for our team; and I took pages and pages of notes. I met up with a guildmate of mine (from Everquest II) and he showed me his gorgeous city. We had fun hanging out together. I got to go shopping at the Mall of America. Oh wow! It's freakin' HUGE but so neat to see. While there, I splurged on some clothing; two pretty blouses and a new pair of much-needed jeans. Actually, my sister bought me one of the blouses and the jeans for my birthday. I spent a couple of days with my sister and we had a meal or two out. She gave me the BEST birthday card ever (yes, my birthday is next week); we laughed like schoolgirls for about 10 minutes over that one. Seriously, I laughed til I cried. I haven't laughed like that in ages! It was great to see and spend time with her. I miss my sis. I don't think I realized just how much. Just so you know G, I do miss you. Tons.

And as for the scoop? Thanks for asking Shlomit sweetie. But I don't have much hope. I usually go to 26 days and then BLAM, CD27 comes and so does the old hag. So don't hold your breath; you'll die before I POAS!

Sounds like a great trip! Maybe doing everything WRONG will turn out to be just RIGHT.
