funky friday

I'm not pregnant. Not that this is incredibly shocking news or anything, but it's still no fun. Today I've officially moved on to cycle #28.

Le sigh.

Being as it's Friday and I'm hormonal as hell, I just don't have it in me to write a post. I'm in a I've-been-trying-to-have-a-baby-for-way-too-long funk. Instead, I thought I'd jump in on the "follow Friday" trend and share a few blogs I follow that have nothing to do with infertility:

Girl, Boy, Dog & Food: This is a great food and travel blog written by my college buddy, Madeline. She's posted some great summer recipes lately. Go check them out! 

Matt, Liz and Madeline: This blog is indescribable. Really, I can't explain how amazing it is. For the back story, click here. But fair warning: you'll need tissues. 

Kitchen Little: My coworker and office partner in crime, Shannon, recently started this food blog. I know from experience that her recipe for chocolate cupcakes is to. die. for. 

Shit My Kid Ruined: I just discovered this blog recently, and I must say that I visit it whenever I feel depressed about not having a child. Heh.

That's all from this cranky infertile today. I hope everyone has a great weekend, and maybe I'll be more enthusiastic about my uterus next week.

Ugh, that sucks Katie. Sorry you're feeling the effects of it all more this cycle. :( Hang in there!

Rebecca said...

Sorry for the sucky day. :(

Will definitely have to check those out. My BIL and nephew were featured on Shit My Kid Ruined a while ago. It is amazing how much puke can come out of one kid...

Just Me...C said...

I hope you have a great weekend! Also, that site (shitmykidsruined) is birth control for the stupid fertiles that need it! :)

chocolate cupcakes? ::drools:: a coworker just bought me a red velvet one, and I'm trying to be good and not eat it...yet.

Lemme eat some real food before I check these out, lol.

Sorry about cycle 28 :(

Alex said...

I'm so sorry about not being pregnant - again...

Thanks for sharing the blogs. There's a part of my screwed up brain that said, "blogs NOT about IF???? Weird!" And so I must expand my blog reading...

Kim said...

Thanks for sharing the blogs...I love to check out new ones, especially non IF related.

Doesn't AF know weekend visits are so not cool?! Sorry hun. xoxoxoxox

I always find a margarita to help with the CD1 funk =) I'm so sorry, this journey is SO long and unfair!

Dawn said...

That sucks! I'm sorry that she showed up.

I need to check out that food blog! I have been wanting cupcakes for a while now.

Amaprincess said...

AL said...

sorry about the AF showing up :-(

A lil bit of non IF reading is good once in awhile - I'll have to drop by those blogs when I have some time.

have a great weekend Katie!

Stephanie said...

Can you pass some AF dust over to me please?! Hopefully you stayed home today for a super deserved long weekend :-D Give D a kiss and she'll make it all better!!

S said...

Katie, I am in your debt for directing me to "Shit My Kids Ruined" and its sister site "Shit My Pets Ruined." Good times.

Hope you are feeling less funk-y soon.

Kakunaa said...

Stupid red-headed stepchild. Blah. Sorry you are down in the dumps. I am scared to look at new blogs ... I read so many already! And you certainly don't need to be perky for US all the time. We get it. HUGS.

S.I.F. said...

Wait... you mean their are people in this world who DON'T deal with infertility and the bitch who just won't stay away (sorry about that by the way)???

I'm going to have to investigate this immediately! See how the other half lives!

Thanks for the recommendations lady!

Adele said...

Growl to the start of another cycle (though, I AM thinking good thoughts for it). I love the idea of "Shit My Kid Ruined":)

Madeline said...

Thanks Katie for the suggestions! I'm sorry for the crappy day. Reading your blog is almost therapeutic for Ryan and me, we can relate so much. You'er able to express yourself so clearly and beautifully. You're in our thoughts.

PS. My "word verification" is "pubebag". really?? lol
