Super Sushi Tuesday.....

Can you believe it's that time again? SUPER SUSHI TUESDAY (echo of tuesday...)

Once again - Super Sushi Tuesday is dedicated to ALL things "Fertility Forbidden"

For instance....as I am writing this post, I am sipping away at my favorite hot beverage - my Dunkin Donuts coffee (which by the way -really IS better than Starbucks!)

Please leave a comment with all the things you have given up, quit, cut down on, long for, miss dearly, wish you could have, etc.

This is where I step in for you! Since hubby and I are on the road to adoption and not actively TTC anymore.....I will GLADLY be your "sushi surrogate"

In other words - I will selflessly indulge all your "fertility forbidden fantasies" for you!

It's just the kind of gal I am - wink, wink, nudge nudge!

In other news:

We WON!!!! Hell yeah we did!!!! It was a sweep!!!
Gotta gear up for the next round- WE CAN DO IT!!!

Let me try and paint you all a picture of what basically transpired last night:
(let me also qualify this by saying I am NOT entirely proud of this)

Hubby and I did our speed-eating of dinner and rushing out of the house in order to get to Adoption Pre-service class on time.
Realized in the car that the Cavs game started an hour earlier than usual - SHIT SHIT SHIT!
Frantically tried to decide who to text about said game.
Sent off urgent messages to a couple of friends begging for text score updates during class.
Thank you KIM and JENNY for getting roped in!!! YOU ROCK!!!
Attempted several undercover text reads during class...done on the down low so as not to piss off our trainer (already been chastised once for a purse incident!)
Finished up class - literally raced out to the car, fumbled with radio dial and found game.
Listened on way home - dashed into house and flopped into recliner to watch the CAVS totally sweep this part of the series! LOVE IT!

Now this morning looking back on that run of events I had several thoughts:
1. My ability to multi-task is amazing
2. That reading text messages in adoption class is probably equivalent to passing notes in school
3. That I used to get in trouble for passing notes all the time in school.
4. That some habits are just HARD to break - adult or not!
5. The Cleveland Cavaliers ROCK!

Just for the record:
I did listen, participate and take in the information we discussed at class last night. It was all about abuse/neglect and the effects it has on children.
Sobering information to say the least.

Not much on the agenda today - will probably try to catch up on some sleep as it seems my good friend INSOMNIA has decided to come for a visit.

Will also be heading out for another healthy walk which by the way has done my mind a world of good. I forgot just how much it truly helps me to put on my headphones and walk.
It is "ME TIME" - My mind and body get into their own little zone.

I am aiming to try and walk daily although I am not going to go bananas if I miss a day.
I figure start off slow and see where it leads.
Sunday I walked 25 min. Monday I walked 30 min. So far so good!
We shall see..................

Congrats on your Cavs! I was SO excited and thought of you when I saw that they swept. So awesome! Glad you're enjoying your walks. Keep it up, I love mine!

Sweet Jenn,
Thank you so much for the hugs and encouragement- you are such a sweetheart.
And what I have given up and miss?
I miss hiking
and eating wheat and eggs and dairy
I miss having sex for fun (or at all actually I guess now that I think about it), I miss the innocence of body-unawareness, of not charting, temping, imagining, fearing. Oh what I miss most is innocent hopefulness.
BUT with all of that said, I would happily give it all up for another shot at being fully heathily pregnant.
But since I am decidedly not pregnant right now, forgive me if I scarf down a crab rangoon next time one is in my neighborhood.

So for me, sushi surrogate, a piece of cake perhaps, a cookie, bread and cheese (yum), some lovin just for the fun of it, a big dose of hopefulness and a heart pounding walk.
Thanks so much!
Warmly, Kate
