No rest for the weary these days. I’m in the middle of my busy season at work, juggling multiple events and just trying to keep my head above water. We had a big event last week, another fundraiser next Friday, and the final big one of the season in June. Not to mention a few small ones scattered in there. I’m daydreaming about this summer and the great plans we’re making.
For Memorial Weekend, I’m taking a quick break from work and we’re heading up to Mendocino. There’s a tiny little cabin there we like to rent that’s tucked away in the middle of the redwoods. 4 days of reading, napping, hiking, and cooking. It can’t come soon enough.
In July, my best friend is getting married on Cape Cod. They’re renting a house on the beach and having a few people spend the week there, with a very low key ceremony taking place at some point. Can’t wait to celebrate with them.
And then at the end of July, my sister and her family are visiting for 2 weeks. Already planning lots of fun San Francisco things to do with them!
When things get hectic, I just keep my eye on the prize and remember all the awesome things coming up. Not that work isn’t awesome. I love what I do. I just find that if I’m working long hours and starting to feel exhausted, making fun plans helps keep me motivated.
On the TTC front, I think I may have finally ovulated? My temp has been high the last 9 days – hovering around 98. Problem is, I stopped peeing on sticks on CD18 and my temp spiked on CD22 (I’m now on CD31). My body seems to have just been sluggish this month. I blame it on all the travel in March. I’m not going in for another progesterone test though. I’m just gonna see how it plays out in May. Once AF shows up, I have to call the radiology department to schedule my HSG. They’ve already called me twice to remind me of this! I’m like, “Dude, back off! I’ll call you. You don’t have to call me.” The last thing I need right now is pressure to start a new cycle. Geez. So until then, I’m just going to concentrate on my work, make my summer plans, and try to carve out some time for relaxing in the middle of all this.
