Another Storm of the Century
We got to leave work early today. Our department left at 1. The department we used to be a part of had to wait until 3 to leave.
I drove to the drug store before going home. Bob had an RX that needed to be picked up. On the way home, I stopped and picked up some sandwiches, bird seed, and suet. The sandwiches were for us. The bird seed and suet for the birds of course. Finding food is hard for the little critters when everything is covered in a cold white frosting.
Today is the perfect day to stay home and read. I've been reading a book called Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. It's very interesting. Why isn't this information passed on in Health classes and doctor's offices? Weschler teaches the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM) which looks at a woman's vaginal discharge as well as her morning waking temp to gauge her fertility. Her frustration with the medical profession is that the 28 day cycle with ovulation on day 14 is universally accepted and rarely challenged. I'm not very far into the book and already I'm feeling hopeful about what I'm learning. It's a giant thick book and I got it from the library, but I'm thinking I might have to actually break down and actually buy a copy of the book to have on hand.
I realized something this weekend. I know what I want to be when I grow up. I want to be a photographer. I want to record memories for people. I want to stop time in little flashes of light. I don't know when or how but that's what I want to do.
