Hi everybody! :)
Sorry for the long absence-I was visiting my family for a week while Boomz was in Rome. Thank you all so much for the prayers for his safe travels! He got back around midnight last night. :)
My sister's wedding was...insane. The whole day was just full of craziness. I felt out of place the whole day because most of the bridal party were people I didn't know and they were all getting really drunk. My little brother was also in the bridal party and I kept getting angry that they were all being such horrible influences on the young people there (one of the bridesmaids was 13 or 14 and she was drinking). I went all Mama Bear on one of the groomsmen at one point, because I heard him yell, "Somebody Ice (insert brother's name here)". There was no way I was going to let them give my brother a Smir.noff, so I yelled, "NOBODY is going to Ice my brother!" My sister quickly whispered to me that there was another member of the bridal party with my brother's name, and I felt like a bit of an idiot. lol Later, I found out that one of the groomsmen gave my brother a rum and coke, and I was pretty upset. Thankfully, my dad took it away from him.
I felt very odd the entire day. The Mass was irreverently celebrated, which broke my heart. There were liturgical abuses galore. There was a fight at the reception, and everybody was wasted. It was really sad. I even had a little too much to drink, myself, but that was because I didn't eat enough and I couldn't taste the alcohol in my drink, which is always dangerous. lol I felt horrible the next morning, but mostly I was disappointed in myself. I haven't let myself get like that for years. Ugh.
On the up side: My sister looked gorgeous and the reception hall was beautifully decorated! And I got to see relatives that I only get to see about once a year, so that was great! :)
In other news, I'm having a really wonky cycle this month. I usually take estro.dial and prome.trium every month to mimic a normal woman's cycle, but this month I wanted to see if I could cycle on my own (plus, I needed to get my prescription refilled and it just never happened. lol). Well, on the 3rd (4 days early) I started having VL bleeding, which has continued almost this entire month. I had one or two moments when "making observations" after going to the bathroom where it was M-H, but it wasn't red. It was this weird pink-brown color. It's also very...thick. Like, I can pick it up and stretch it thick. I'm starting to get a little concerned, and I can't make it in to my NaPro doctor because she works far away. Do you have any idea what could be going on? I would really appreciate some help! :)
P.S. Is anybody else having issues with their Goo.gle Read.er with the blogs that have recently gone private? Their new posts aren't showing up!
