this blog is becoming an infertility blog, and I do not offer any apologies.  As I have said before, writing is my catharsis.  Also, if I provide one person who is going through what I am going through some type of comfort then I am beyond satisfied. My original plan for this blog was nowhere near as personal as it has become, and if you know me in real life and do not feel comfortable reading or feel reading this blog will change the way we interact in real life, then please do not continue reading.

Alas, I am trying to focus on sustaining a "normalcy" in my life because I know in my heart that is the right thing to do, but nowhere near as easy as one would think.  It's very easy to be consumed and I am aware of it, so I need to work hard to maintain some level of normalcy.

So what has been going on?

So bullets.
  • We have no carpet on our stairs as we are waiting to schedule a day for carpet installation because NO TIME.  We are starting to like the industrial look.
  • Busy season at work is keeping me busy, but the end is quickly approaching which I have very mixed feelings about.
  • The juice/smoothie I drink every morning is doing wonders for my morning energy levels. You can find the recipe below.
  • I am currently reading "Smart Women" by Judy Blume.  It was given to me by my dear and fabulous friend Tiffany.  I am realizing reading fiction will be a good addition to my bad TV obsession.  It keeps my mind elsewhere, which is just what I need.
  • While looking for an age appropriate night out at a club outfit for my sister's 21st birthday I decided to check out asos. I have heard fabulous things about this website and ordered a couple of tops.  I love the selection, free shipping and return shipping when you spend $40, quality and prices.
Wheat Grass & Maca Juice
1 scoop dried wheat grass juice powder (equivalent of 13 shots of wheat grass)
1tablespoon maca powder
1/2 cup coconut water or plain H20
splash of natural pineapple juice
drop of vitamin D3
handful of Cascadian Farms Organic Antioxidant Blend Harvest Berries. I love the convenience of these berries and they are quite reasonable at Costco.
I also add my liquid fish oil to the mix which has no taste.  I prefer to drink it in something rather than take it from a spoon like cough medicine.
If I am in a smoothie mood I usually add a banana, spinach and a couple of cubes of ice.  Usually I prefer to just chug the juice.  Its not bad, but its nowhere near fabulous.
