7 Quick Takes!



The Dental Work.

The epic, epic dental work.

3 root canals, 1 crown, and 10 fillings later.



You know what that means?

The 14 months of phase II abstinence are over.

And CD 1 is just around the corner.


I just started this book:

I’m watching season 8 of Biggest Loser on Netflix, and when Abby was introduced and told her story, I burst into sobs immediately.

If you follow BL, you probably remember Abby.

Her husband, 5 year old daughter, and 2 week old son were all killed in the same car crash.


That’s a story you have to read. How someone comes back from that. How does someone come back from that?

I’ll let you know.


This weekend is my SIL’s bridal shower and bachelorette party.

We’re having food from Whole Foods, Flying Cupckaes, and wine.

Then we’re going out on the town.

I even get to stay at hotel downtown with some of the girls.

I’m super excited for a night out. Gosh, I don’t even remember the last time I’ve gone out with girlfriends for drinks and dancing.


If you’re on Facebook, I need you to do two things.

1) Go to the Fumbling Toward Grace page and “like” it, please!

2) Go to the page for a great new website which is launching in May, iusenfp.com

It’s going to be a resource website on all types of NFP, going green, as well as using NFP to help treat medical conditions like PCOS and other disorders.

You can “like” I use NFP on Facebook now and be part of the conversation leading up to the launch.


Those people at PP do not have a monopoly on all things pink, fun, and appealing.

We need to replace this:

Nothing against babies, obviously, but this is not going to cause women to ditch their pills, patches, and potions to consider the possibility of NFP.

This might:

Thanks Katie, for making these awesome buttons.

Speaking of buttons, I’d like to wear this to my doctor’s office:

Can I get an AMEN?


Now I’m off to scrub my kitchen from top to bottom.

Lucky me.

Have a great weekend and stop by Jen‘s for more quick takes!

    2. Unfortunately, I use NFP and my body IS broken. But with my charts, my doctor is helping me figure out what’s wrong, and maybe even fix it. Yes, fix it– not put my on the Pill so that it doesn’t bother me. That’s something that most mainstream docs won’t do.

    I am so excited for you that your dental work is finished! And I’m totally praying that we are seeing an announcement from Maggie about being a big sister very soon!

    Have a great weekend!!!!

    (And if this is the second comment I’m leaving, feel free to delete it – WP made me log in and then didn’t tell me if it accepted my first comment or not.)

    I’m glad all that dental work is over! I can’t imagine!

    That book/story sounds horrific. I can’t imagine and pray I never have to find out. I don’t think I could read the book! I’d love to hear what you have to say when you’re finished!

    I “like” your page over on Facebook! Would you come over “like” mine? :)

    Good luck with the scrubbing of the kitchen! You are a better woman than I am! I did scrub all the bathrooms this week, though. :)

    Enjoy your night out with the girls. Sounds fabulous!

    Wow, that dental stuff does sound epic, I totally have missed out on the backstory though, but it sounds crazy. However, I am glad everything is going well now. Oh, and an announcement from Maggie in the near future would be nice too! :)

    The biggest loser is one of my favorite shows right now. I’ll definitely have to read that book!

  • Pat

    I would enjoy reading that book also. It could be a Christmas present. Thank you for sharing such a variety in the quick takes.
