Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

I first would like to give thanks for three days off after Thanksgiving. I began cooking on Thursday at 9 am and the last guests left at 9 pm. It was a blast, but I needed all the time to slowly recover (and do some heavy duty cleaning).

Dinner went off without a hitch, and everything turned out pretty darn good. Whew.

Above all, though, it was great to get to welcome our families into our home. It was the first time both my fam and DH's fam had seen each other since the wedding 1.5 years ago, and everyone got along so well. I am so blessed to have such an amazing husband, loving parents, hilarious brothers, great in-laws, and a nice home to welcome them all into.

My parents, the pup, my bro, me, Nana, the hubs, and the other bro.

The "damn good" turkey.

The aftermath ... well, part of it.

In other news, if you direct your attention to my ticker, you'll see that according to FF, I've O'ed! Yet another thing to be thankful for. My chart is a disaster area between the one BBT breaking and the new one seeming to show temps slightly lower, but it's looking like I can trust the crosshairs. Whew.

I don't know what kind of hopes I have for this cycle, though. I partially simply don't want to get my hopes up, but the cysts have me a little worried. I know it's totally possible to still conceive with them, but I have read they can prohibit a "normal" ovulation. Then again, when have I ever been normal when it comes to TTC?

Eh, I'm just chilling and going with it this time. Even if my negativity is unfounded, at least it will allow me a 2ww without the "normal" paranoia and phantom symptoms. Well worth it.
