feeling a little mia

I haven't been avoiding writing about pregnancy #3, I've just been waiting for the right moment to disclose all the weekly updates.  Being pregnant so closely to Coen's arrival has us running in 100 circles.  So much going on...
  • Do we buy a new car?  When?  Do we trade in my car that we own or my husband's car that is smaller and not feasible for two car seats?
  • Do we have them room share?  If so, do we repaint everything so that it looks like the same room in the "new" room or do we just leave it alone?
  • Of the bills we have, what do we pay off first?  Do we need to consult Dave Ramsey?
  • Do we need a new washer and dryer? Eco-friendly, save on our water bill, be more gentle on our clothes... safer?
  • When do we buy another crib?  Do we want to take the one from Sean's co-worker?
  • When do we finish the basement?  The moving idea will have to go on hold, but finishing the basement must become a priority.
  • Do we still go on a family vacation or do we hold off to save money? Or do we try to go somewhere closer and save money?  Or do we just go to Chicago for vacation?
  • What can we donate?  What can we get rid of? 
  • When can we get our house guests items out of our basement so that we can re-organize our items?  When will they make this a priority?
  • We need patio furniture, when do we buy this?  Do we live without for this summer and buy next year?  Or do we just wait for a big sale or to find it at a thrift store?
  • Where can we find extra money?  Do I start selling Pampered Chef again?  Do I sell something else?  Do I find another job?  Do I work from home part time on the weekends doing something totally different?  Doesn't money grow on trees SOMEWHERE?  If so, can someone tell me where? 
Just a lot going on.

When we calm down and figure some things out, I'll start formulating the updates.

Until then....

We understand!! Good luck with getting everything worked out. I've been thinking we should consult Ramsey too, but then again I'd rather just find those money trees :)

I feel that way and our babies are almost 3 years a part!! I think just bringing another child into the equation is stressful all onto itself.

Good luck! I know everything will work out fantastically :)

Oh my goodness. Holy crap! I totally missed that you were pregnant again! Happy Happy, Joy Joy! Congrats, Jill. I think this is so wonderful!

My younger sister and I are only 13 months apart and we all made it out alive (including my parents, hehe).
HUG. Take your time. And yes, I totally get it. It's a LOT.

We'll be here waiting. I hope you find some peace soon.

Yikes, you've got a lot rolling around in your brain. Everything will work out ... just remember that. It will all settle down and fall into place eventually!

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.
