I usually can't get it together enough on Sunday night/Monday mornings to do a weekend recap post, but since I'm enjoying day 3 of 5 days off, I have plenty of time to write a post. It seems like my days off are flying by & the weekend was no exception, it went by so fast!
Friday night we stayed in. We watched a movie & had a few cocktails. Did you guys know that the best seasonal beer of the year is finally out here in Illinois? If you've never had Shiner Holiday Cheer, then I urge you to stop what you're doing and go to your nearest liquor store and get some. It's a Dunkelweizen (dark wheat ale) brewed with peaches and pecans and it is sooo yummy! It's definitely our favorite seasonal beer of the year and definitely helps brings out the Christmas spirit in us! I finished off my Friday night with a bottle of merlot, perfect for a chilly fall night.
Saturday night we celebrated my friend Jessica's birthday. We had game night and pizza at her house, it was a blast! We played Clue, which seriously took us over an hour to play 1 game, I swear that we were not following the rules properly. We also made it into a drinking game, if you were accused of the murder you had to drink and if you didn't have any of the cards that a player guessed, you had to drink. We also played Cards Against Humanity, if you haven't played I highly suggest it, and Spot It. I'm pretty certain that we cashed about 5 bottles of wine and a shit ton of beer. So fun!
Sunday was a day to relax. I laid around with Frankie catching up on the DVR and tried to sooth my sore butt on the heating pad. The PIO injections are hurting worse than ever this time. It basically feels like I did 1 million crunches, but I didn't. Later in the day I went out to the house to clean up the garage since our appliances will be delivered sometime next week! I ended up vacuuming the entire house up and hardcore organizing things the best that I could. There was so much stuff scattered everywhere it was giving me anxiety every time I saw it, I felt 100% better about it after I put my magic touch on it. Joe got a couple of the gables sided with the cedar shake and it looks so good! I'm so happy with how all of our choice are coming together!
I can't believe that our transfer is tomorrow! This cycle seriously went by so fast, I was so preoccupied with everything else going on in our lives that I didn't have much time dwell on things like I have in the past. I will undoubtedly be a nervous wreck during my 2ww know that if it doesn't work this time, that we need to take a break for a while. I'm hoping to be just as preoccupied during that time to help keep the negativity at bay.
