It is now September. Time, when dealing with infertility, both goes incredibly quickly and incredibly slowly. Lately, things have been going pretty slowly, but it's still kind of crazy to think that it is September. Well, that it's September and I'm still not pregnant. But here it is, September, and I have a new temp job starting tomorrow. We'll see how this month goes.

Our day trip was lovely and was a great idea. We get so caught up in doing errands and taking care of things there is no time to do during the week that we forget to do things to entertain ourselves. We have to remember to do things like that more often. It was very refreshing. We walked around in a familiar town, though all of the changes and the young college students walking around made us feel pretty old. I showed T the old apartment that I used to live in, and we had some sushi in one of the new restaurants. I got a 15 minute chair massage that was just wonderful.

I spent about two hours in the yarn store and really stocked up. It was crazy, but T told me to buy whatever I wanted. He's such an enabler. So, I have yarn for a new vest for me and a new sweater for me. And a new purse for me. I bought a couple of other things to make some small things for others, but mostly I bought yarn to make things for me. I guess I'm selfish, but I like to make things for myself.

We also went to this great place called the Montague Book Mill. It's a book store (and other things) built in an old New England Mill. Its motto is "Books you don't need in a place you can't find." We sat in chairs by the stream while the breeze blew in the windows. It was lovely.

Last night we had a family cookout and I made 2 batches of rice krispie squares -- one covered in chocolate and one just plain. We ate ALL of them. Tonight we are going to our friends S&R's house for another cookout. I have to make the potato salad in a few minutes.

So, it was nice to get away. This week is bound to be a somewhat crazy one, so hopefully the relaxing long weekend will help.

I know what you mean about time moving both too slow and too fast. I'm glad you had a relaxing weekend and wish you the best of luck with the next dIUI and your temp job.

Sounds like a really fun (and tasty) weekend!

I hope September brings lots of good things your way.

I 'just' learned to knit but I can't stay away from the yarn store and already have a stash that looks like someone who has been knitting for years. I haven't selected a project yet; I'm still just practicing :)

Thinking of you and hoping this cycle is the one for you.
