I saw my acupuncture doctor yesterday and much to my surprise, she read my BBT chart much differently than I expected. she said I'd just ovulated on Wednesday, which explained why my temperature had dropped rather low and then popped up on Thursday. she said it looked very good.
here I'd thought it was hopeless already, because my temperature wasn't staying up around 98 degrees and was dropping down. so that was pretty exciting. and sweet, too, as it meant I ovulated on the 17th day again. I did that in January when I got pregnant.
however, my temperature didnt stay up as it should, today it dropped down to 97.74. sigh.
so it goes. here I had hopes I was pregnant, or we might have had a chance for impact, but now I guess that's not likely. alrighty. I'll keep up with the Chinese herbs and such and see what happens.
it was super chilly last night, I was even getting shivers. I climbed into bed wearing my fleece pants (woo!) which usually keep me quite warm, and put on our super warm fuzzy blanket, then K folded it over me so it was doubled up on me. toasty warm. it's amazing. so at least I did everything I could to be warm.
the weather here has been quite miserably and unseasonably cold. for example, today's predicted high is going to be 60 degrees. it's officially summer. sigh. hopefully it will warm up.
Have you discovered the tv show, Steven and Chris? we dont have cable, so K and I discovered this show is played at 9pm on one of our free channels. woohoo. they discuss interior design a lot (my obsession), and have even had little segments that are full of useful tips. and interesting recipes. I think we've tried one already. yeah, we're unabashed fans.
we found a gorgeous mahogany desk on craigslist, it's big but it looks so perfect for our living room. It closes up, which I'm really excited about. so we can keep our living room looking formal and pretty.
I'm hoping it works out. it's pretty big so we need friends who can help us pick it up. (she let me know there are 2 people behind me for the desk).
but if it doesnt work out, I'll be fine. I need to remember that. :)
we just bought an ikea ektorp couch. a full sized couch!! so exciting. we have the loveseat and the ektorp jennylund chair, so we know they are fabulous, last a long time, and incredibly comfortable. as well as a great style. it's sitting in a box in the living room. (there was a special sale where you get 15% back in a gift card - perfect since we need a few more things at ikea. yippee).
we're a bit overwhelmed with all the shopping lately. we're about to get cedar lining for the master bedroom closet, as well as a closet system.
but we realize once we get all these things, we dont need anything else for a good long time. at least I sure hope that is true! they are all good investment pieces, at least. so we're not wasting money on things that will break anytime soon. but it's good to step back and make sure these are the right purchases for us.
oy, I've got to run this morning. tons of errands to do plus work. woot.
which reminds me, my acupuncture doctor thinks I'm too stressed out and doing too much. sigh. too true, unfortunately.
when I try to talk to K about it, he just cant wrap his head around slowing down and doing things that are relaxing. he'll say, "well, let's do something fun on Sunday."
which I dont think he realizes is really not enough if we're only having fun one day a week. it's hard for both of us to slow down and relax. somehow we must find a way to stop the constant work on the home and jobs. sigh. I'm hoping for help from angels or something.
we're going to need it (and I think angels are incredibly compassionate on ridiculous requests like this!)
