I recently discovered nfpcharting.com and am loving it. It's designed for the Billings Ovulation Method of NFP (Natural Family Planning) charting, but it can easily be adapted for the Creighton Model. You get the first month for free, and it's $2.50 a month after that. I think we can afford that.
What I like about it? It doesn't require stickers or paper charts or FINDING A PENCIL. That alone is worth the price of admission. You can e-mail your chart to your instructor (or doctor) and print it off for your appointments. If you're lucky enough to own one, it's also available as an app for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch.
Somebody get me out of the homemade cherry butter and English muffins. Thank you.
A while ago I attempted to cut the budget down by turning off the A/C. Feeling perpetually sticky, wilted, and drained, I'd never had a grumpier week in my life. Sure we were saving money, but at what cost? (Sorry, I crack myself up sometimes). So we're cutting corners elsewhere (not sure where yet, actually... but we'll think of something) and turned it back down to a comfortable 74 degrees. This is livin'.
Well, this was livin'. Today the infernal thing broke and is leaving the infernal house in infernal temperatures. I can feel my mood souring as quickly as that milk I left out last night.
I have a black thumb. Every six months my husband gives me an indoor Azalea bush. Every six months I am deliriously happy. Every time, within three weeks, I'm crushed. I don't think my dried parsley shatters as much as those Azalea leaves do. Do I overwater them? Underwater? I just don't know! It's crispier than a potato chip now, though.
