Loss for Words

I don't know what to say.

I'm benched, so no cycle news to obsess over or report. I'll probably start the OPKs this weekend, since I've already got a box of them. Why not...

I'm caught up on all of your blogs. I'm celebrating with you, crying with you, infuriated on your behalf and waiting right along with you. But I seem to have no words.

So I will leave you with the minor details that are pinging around in my skull for the moment:

Work is getting busier. Today was the first day in weeks that it took me until the very end of the day to get through my inbox. No time for wool gathering. This is a relief, as I have really been starting to worry that I'm missing/forgetting some big chunks of my job. I shouldn't be as caught up as I am. Not at this time of year. With our big board meeting coming up, this makes me VERY nervous.

The house plant is not doing well. I bought it some organic plant food, and have been feeding it and watering it (but not too much/often) and keeping it in the sunshine. And now it has only two leaves, one of which is dying. Oh, and the organic food seems to have given it flies. *sigh*

Last night after work, I went to a yoga class for the first time in more than ten years. It was not easy, but it felt incredible after the fact and I'm only a little sore today. My darling Professor even bought me some new yoga gear as an add-on birthday gift! I'm determined to ditch those 18 pounds that have hitched on since we pulled the goalie and I'm worried about my future health. My BMI is solidly in the "overweight" category and both of my parents have been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes after lifelong overindulgence and insufficient exercise. I DO NOT want to go there.

We made our last car payment this week. It feels awesome! We're going to redirect that payment to my student loans next and might get them paid off by the end of the year. That will also be awesome!

Happy Thoughts:

I got a pretty new necklace in the mail today.
My boss gave me a nice fat S*bux card for my B-day.
Professor has no immediate plans for travel.


  1. Doesn't it feel good to pay off a vehicle?

    And awe for your house plant. I kill everything but somehow have managed to keep three plants alive for a long time (knocks on wood).

    I wish I had some tips but I have a black thumb instead of a green one LOL.

  2. Yay for yoga!! I've been out of it for just a few months and have been getting the urge to go back to class. I've found a new school and hope to take a trial class on Monday. Maybe it'll help us to "just relax." ;)

  3. Happy Belated Birthday!
    Sorry your benched.
    You do have a lot of great things to feel good about, no car payment, yoga, coffee. Mmmmm.
    Hang in there :)

  4. It sounds like things are going well outside of the benched cycle. I'm truly sorry about the cyst. It's one thing to take a cycle off on your own, but it's another to have your body force you to the bench. Crossing my fingers that it clears soon so you can get back onto the playing field!

  5. So sorry you are benched. That totally sucks. Yea for getting pretty things in the mail, I always love that. Awesome job on going to yoga. I need to get back into exercising, but it is so hard to get the motivation.

  6. Yay for yoga and new clothes and a paid-off car and a sweet husband!

    I know how you feel about having nothing to say. I've felt that way so often lately. Speed up time, and bring me something happy!

  7. Don't you love the feeling of paying off your car!

  8. Must be so frustrating being benched but sounds like you're still having a pretty constructive phase - yoga, finances etc. Hope your happy thoughts stay with you and that the list gets longer with time x

  9. I know it feels like there's not much to say, but really everything you're talking about is LIFE! But, I also know just how you feel. Hang in there, darlin'.
