Comme Ci, Comme Ca

Nothing much going on here. Just wanted to let y'all know that I'm still here and doing OK.

JD is also doing OK. A month into his new job, he's concerned that he doesn't really know what he's doing (the code is something that he's not familiar with), but he does think it's cool that he got paid to watch Mission Control launch Atlantis.

Hockey 'n' HeelsYesterday, my friend, BB, and I went to Hockey 'n' Heels, a Caps event for women. It was awesome! We got to go out on the Caps' practice ice with some players and try to score a goal, win a faceoff, and learn stickhandling. Then, we got to try on some equipment (pads and gloves and helmets, oh my), we spoke to 2 TV analysts, then we got time with Bruuuuce "Gabby" Boudreau, the head coach, who taught us about prescouting teams with game films. Will show pics as soon as BB sends them to me.

I'll be cooking and freezing some detox-allowed food for Thanksgiving this weekend. I'm planning to make: quinoa with dried fruits and nuts, whipped/mashed sweet potatoes with pumpkin and a butternut squash-brown rice pasta bake. I'll let you know how those turn out and provide recipes after the weekend.

In TTC news, I'm just waiting around for the ovulation thang, so we can get going with IUI #4, also known as There's No Place Like Nausea-town for the Holidays.

I love quinoa...it smells like corn, have you noticed? A co-worker pointed that out to me, once, when I was eating it at work, and now that's all I smell when I have it.

Hope you have a fabulous day of Thanks.

DUDE. They don't have any events like that with the Sharks!!! WTF?! That sounds pretty awesome. Kinda fun that both of our teams are doing so well!

Crossing my fingers that the fourth time is the charm.

Thinking lots of positive thoughts for IUI#4!

That sounds like an awesome time out!

And those dishes sound delicious!

Awesome! We haven't made it yet to our first Caps game this season. We always try to see them when they play Detroit, which I think might be in January this season...not sure. We've toyed with the idea of getting one of those 5 game packages, but always talk ourselves out of it at the last minute... Sounds like a great time! :)

Your recipes sound delish! Fingers crossed for IUI#4. Happy ICLQW.

That hockey thing sounds fun!

I have always wanted to try quinoa. Your menu sounds fabulous.

I am looking forward to hearing your details about the IUI. I will be doing that this month as well. I hope that it brings you your miracle!

Your detox meals sound pretty tasty -- I think it's great that you're able to come up with meals that are Thanksgiving-like so you can still enjoy the holiday.

Hope you get to do IUI #4 soon and all goes well!

I WANT TO GO! So jealous of you! I WANT TO GO! I love hockey. Sorry I have been a sucky bloggy friend lately, you can hit me the next time I am out there (or if you are ever in the State of Hockey).

Good luck with #4 know that I am PRAYING for you everyday.

Stopping by for an ICLW visit...

I wish we had something like that for my NHL team! That sounds like a lot of fun! Good luck with the next IUI!!

Lol at "No place like nausea-town for the holidays!" Hilarious!

The hockey in heels thing sounds fun. I've never been into hockey, but it's also not super big in my area.

I pray that IUI #4 will go smoothly for you and result in a sticky bfp! Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Happy ICLW!
