A Day Away
We invited my sister with us. Wait I have a sister? Not a biological sister but I did upgrade my bestie, S, to sister as of yesterday. We are a family, an Army family. Her husband deployed recently and I'm still waiting for mine to get his orders to go.
So S, J, the 2 redheaded boys and I headed out to Port Townsend for the day. It was spur of the moment but that is the way things sometimes end up being. I did some Christmas shopping while in town and I'm quite pleased with the purchases I made.
J took the above photo while on the beach at Fort Townsend with the boys. S and I walked the beach together toeing up pretty rocks. I brought home two of the rocks.
Some of you are probably curious right now as to the results of the HPT I said I would be taking this weekend. I did take one yesterday morning and this morning. This morning's was negative and that means that yesterday's line was only an evaporation line. Its now 12DPO. I still have another 4 days to go until my next cycle is likely to start. Usually my cycle is 24-27 days, and like I've said before I'm an early ovulator so I usually have about 16 days to wait in the two week wait. I still have time for a positive to show up but its highly unlikely with my egg quality issue.
One bad sign, the box of endometrin I just opened, not one of the tablets has been whole. Each one has been broken so far. Maybe an omen? No damage to the outer box, inner box or packaging covering each tablet. Go figure.
Another bit of bad...If J isn't getting deployed he will most likely be pushed out of the Army when his contract is up next year. Not fair, but what can we do about it? I'll find out more in the days to come.
