lost motivation

After my thanksgiving guest left (4 children and 2 adults - neices/nephews/brother/sister in laws), I felt like I had the motivation that I'd been missing to continue through the day picking up the house and putting everything in order.  Once I had done my 5th load of sheets or towels, I threw in the towel.  We had brought up 6 of the 12 Christmas boxes in hopes that I would just dive right in.  I opened most of them and just started pulling things out and putting them on the kitchen table.  I had not motivation to put up "winter wonderland" like I had planned.  I took down all of my fall decorations and put them all away but then when it came to decorating again, I just lost it.

I'm bummed because today is December 2nd and I still don't have my tree up... but it is what it is...

I'll get it up, just have to get it going this weekend and just crank it out!  Saturday will be a little crazy, but I've got to start somewhere!

Where are you with decorating?  Started?  Not doing it?

Done last weekend! Our motivation was the fact that we are hosting a Christmas party this Saturday. We had to make some tough decisions about decorations being appropriate with a handsy toddler running around. Some of our favorite stuff had to get packed away for a long time.

I started, um only my tree is up. And it's only covered in lights, no ornaments. Sadly, it's been that way since Thanksgiving eve. And I'm thinking it won't be until NEXT weekend before I get around to the rest of the decorations.

Not started yet! I'm planning to decorate this weekend, but I like to wait until the first weekend of December anyway, so I feel good about it!

No worries my friend, I have half of my christmas things up, and I did not even do it myself, I bribed my little sis to do it on Thanksgiving... you would think a week long relaxing vacation would give me the energy to get stuff done... nope! I say, Sundays are for productivity! Enjoy the weekend!

Almost done! Tree's up and everything is decorated inside. We just need to get our decorations up outside but D can do that part. :)

We just put our house on the market last week, so we'll keep it simple this year. Just a few of my small trees and some wreaths, maybe. Can't wait to see pics of your decorations!
I hear you on this. Thanksgiving kicked my ass this year! And with both my husband and sister in school, we haven't had much time to decorate....which is a bummer. Right now we have about 7 boxes in our living room with Christmas decorations and a tree. It is so cluttered and annoying, but we just haven't had time to put everything up. I really want to start working on it this week so hopefully everything is up by this weekend - you know only 2 weeks before Christmas! GAH!! :)

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

clomid vs. follistim

(IUI #4)

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "letters, 1", stating:

"what are the statistics on follistim v. clomid or other oral egg-enhancing drugs?"

Before I responded, I went on just to make sure I knew what I was talking about.  {Nothing like going through a medical procedure, thinking you know everything and then letting an Anonymous comment send me off my track. ha!}

Disclaimer: I'm not a dr. nor do I want to be a dr.  This is what I understand to be the difference.  This isn't fact, other than the links I'm posting, it's just my understanding.  Please DO NOT take my words for fact.

This is what I knew before I did the research:

Both Clomid and Follistim are ovary stimulating drugs that tell your ovaries to produce eggs.  They are both in the same in that aspect of things.  The physical difference is that Clomid is in pill form and taken orally.  Follistim is powder to liquid that is administrated by a pen/shot.
