We're officially off the TTC bandwagon for 4 months and I'm ok with that. To be honest, if I was younger I'd gladly take a break for the next year or two. But turning 39 this year I really don't feel like that's an option. I've been feeling pretty negative for awhile now about IVF including everyone and everything associated with it, so I'm hoping a few months off will give us some head space and normality for a bit. I've stopped taking the 50 million tablets I feel like I've been on taking for forever (thank goodness - soooo over them) and I've returned to drinking coffee and alcohol (yay!) and basically doing whatever I like without any regard for my fertility which has been, quite frankly, a relief. I've also returned to gardening and spent a lot of time cleaning up our neglected back yard and veggie patch. I've even completed a few projects around the house like installing a cat flap for Merkin and cutting a new anchor well in our tinnie which has made me feel a lot more like my old self. I'm just enjoying not thinking about any TTC crap for the first time in 16mths. Of course I'm still reading everyone's blogs but my blog won't have too much baby making content for a bit. Instead, I think I'll be blogging about other far more exciting things ... like fishing!
Scout and I are on a 2 week road trip at the moment while the girls are visiting their dad. We organised a pet nanny for our furry kin, packed up the car and boat and headed off on Monday with no real plans except to fish the eastern coastline of Victoria into NSW. We packed fairly light so we could sleep in the car if needed. So far we've fished both the Tambo and Snowy River and spent two nights in the car which was interesting. We cut out a foam mattress to fit the back of the car with the seats down and it's not too bad but it certainly doesn't leave much room to move! Have half expected a park ranger to come knocking on the window in the middle of the night to tell us to move along but so far so good! The fishing's been ok. Nothing too exciting but they're biting. Only caught small brim so far which we catch and release. Scout is still struggling to find her game and making me feel guilty each time I pull one in - but I think she'll be giving me a run for my money over the next couple of days! Will post some picks when I get my act together. Happy Easter!
