Adventures Part 24: From Black Cats to Magpies

We have a magpie camping out in our garden! Now, I know that usually magpies travel in groups, in the very least pairs, but this one is quite happy hanging out on his own. I’ve been waving at him for days, but he’s still there, marching around the place, picking at the grass. I don’t know what he’s hoping to find, but I wish he’d just go away! I’m tired of looking for the 2nd one who’s usually around.

A couple of months ago, I wrote about the good luck sign of a black cat. Just when I was starting to think things might be going well, along comes Mr Magpie. I’m not really a superstitious person, but as it’s getting close to the deadline for my resolutions, I’m looking for signs.

All in all it’s looking good for next month. I’m really making a big effort on the vag and dilator front. I’ve even roped Wonder Boy into helping me with the exercises to try and help me get over my fear. It’s a little weird, but we’ll see.   🙂    I’m going to try some relaxation techniques and get as much help as I can from my gyn appointment in a couple of weeks.

Unfortunately, there’s been a casualty in my plan…..I’ve given up on running!!! I just really hate it. I always have and I always will. I can honestly say I gave it my best shot. I got as far as being able to run for 4 minute blocks, but I thought I was going to have a heart attack when I got home. Now I’m trying 1 minute running, 1 minute walking and it’s working out much better. I have to face the fact that I’m never going to be able to run 3 miles in 30 minutes-that was my goal. I can run/walk it in about 40 and that’s just going to have to do!

Right…I’m off to get that magpie!   😀
