Monday Mind Dump, the third.

It’s Monday know what that means. Time to dump out my thoughts – random or otherwise.

1) I love how I can blog from my phone. I mean, it’s more of a pain, for sure, but I was just sitting here, being a slug on the couch, and decided to blog. All I had to do was pick up my phone. Of course, part of the problem is that I can’t get up, as Sadie is draped across my feet. This leads me to my second mind dump.

2) We’ve had a doggy injury! Yesterday, the husband was throwing a ball around the backyard with Riley, and as she was running, she obviously stepped on something sharp. My tough little rescue dog didn’t cry at all, but she picked up her front paw and hobbled to my husband, who scooped her up. He called out to me to grab paper towels, because she was dripping blood from her poor paw, all over our deck. It bled for a little while, and of course she kept licking it. We decided she probably cut her pad a little bit, and when the bleeding stopped, we waited it out. Plus, we would have to drive a while for a vet open on Sunday afternoons.

Anyway, to make a long story short, it wasn’t her pad, it was her outside nail. Something got between it and her pad, hence the blood. As Riley licked it all night, it started to come loose. We got her into the vet first thing this morning, and by then it was barely on – turned sideways, sticking out. Luckily, the vet did not have to put her under, which would’ve cost us hundreds. They did, however, take the nail off. She’s now licking it again, and it could be sore for 6 weeks, they said. She’s down a nail. Poor puppy. All I know is that she was the first thing I thought of when I woke up this morning, and I had to get up and make sure she was okay! My babies before babies.

3) Happy thoughts, Day 3. It’s going to work, I’m telling you. Well, I’m telling myself. I got these cheap OPK’s, the old-fashioned kind, because the digital ones were getting too expensive. Sure hope they work just as good! The only problem is they require the test stick to lay flat, not moved, for 4 minutes. How can I do that at work? I can’t always hold it until I get home. Yikes.

4) We have started the “games” today. I’m going all out here, people! His count is good, let’s do this! (Talk to me again in 12 days.) Hey, maybe I’ll ovulate earlier than CD 24 this time, that would be nice.

    I was going back through some old comments and saw that I had never come back and joined your site! I’m glad I did tonight! Looking forward to keeping in touch and following your journey!

    Ag shampies, just so glad it was not to bad for your baby. They are beautiful, love the pics.

    Good luck with this cycle. I have also used the cheaper OPK’s and just sat in the toilet at work until I got my results 🙂

    Really hope this is a good cycle for you

      That is so nice, thank you very much. This positivity thing is hard to keep up with sometimes, but I’m glad it’s helpful to people out there besides me! I just love the support that we all give and receive through these blogs.

    To echo everyone else, your dogs are absolutely adorable! They really are our kids before kids.

    Good luck with the positivity, it seems to get easier the more you practice it! I also just used “old-fashioned” ovulation strips, along with Clomid, so I’m hoping it works for both of us.

    Poor baby! Glad she was a trooper!

    Glad to hear that you are thinking positive and giving it your all. I know what it feels like to have refreshed confidence! Lots of luck this cycle!
