Ho Hum.... *Updated with blog give-away winner

First off, thank you so much for your prayers and support.

Thankfully we didn't any phone calls with bad news today.

Understandably I've been feeling really down. I stayed close to home and only left the house to attend mass. Mr. JB was running a movie afternoon with the K.nights of C.olumbus so I was home alone for most of the afternoon.

I took down the Christmas decorations today and the house is looking a little sad. Aside from all of the bad news, I always feel like I mourn the end of the Christmas season. Winter in Canada may be beautiful, but it is LONG and VERY cold and the end of Christmas usually means three or four more months of cold, cloudy days.

In cycle news: I finished my HCG injections last night. Today is Peak +10 (10DPO) and I finally have green stickers! Yay! My bbs started to feel sore yesterday and I'm EXHAUSTED! All par for the course at the end of my cycle.

I decided to fill my prescription for F.emara for the start of my next cycle. I'm also going to take the mucous enhancers that my Napro doctor prescribed for me before my surgeries. I don't want to have to wait until February 8th when I see her to hear that I can do both! I don't have time to waste!!!

Btw, I'm going to do the draw for my blog give-away this evening. I apologize again for the delay!

p.s. Not everything was completely sad yesterday. I found some delicious gluten-free breads at my local health food store. I got bagels, pizza crusts and a baguette! So tasty!

  1. I’m so sorry. You just sound so beat down and I know how hard it must be to have all this bad news surrounding you. Hugs and prayers, JB.

    Way to look on the bright side with the food finds. I hope they are tasty!

  2. I am glad you got a reprieve from sad news today. Sometimes you need to cling to the small things in life to just make it through the tough ones - (like not getting any more phone calls today). You will continue to be in my prayers. My grandpa was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer in October, so I have been feeling a bit helpless myself. But, I try to remember that God is above all of my fears and hopefully will bring much good out of this situation (and any awful situation for that matter). God Bless!

    P.S. I sent you an e-mail with my address. Wow, I am excited about the PWB...thank you so very much!!!! :)

  3. Ugh, so much sad news, right at the darkest, gloomiest time of the year.

    Maybe some winter decorating would help? You know, some new cozy sheets and a few new candles? Anything to up the warmth and light?

    At least you found the yummy gluten free stuff! That's an accomplishment!

    I've got my fingers crossed for you. And my hands folded...

  4. Ugh, I was gone for the weekend so I am just now getting caught up on the blogs. I'm so sorry to hear about all the sad news you've been getting! I pray that God's mercy and healing and peace will be upon all of your family members.

  5. Where do you get your gluten free stuff?

    It is a blah time of year. I think you need a spa afternoon or a massage.
