  1. I'm wearing a side pony today.  Not because I thought I would look cute but because my hair on the left side of my head has a lot of layers and makes it nearly impossible to pull back and this is the only solution.
  2. I realized yesterday that I need to pack my hospital bag.  I'll be writing a post about this because it'll be a little different than last time.
  3. Just a minute ago, I thought I was starting to feel Braxton hicks again, so I'm increasing my water intake, stat.
  4. I hated the lunch that I packed for today, not to mention the fact that I ate 1/2 of it for breakfast.  So I went to the store and got canned soup, a bagel, an apple and two chocolate chunk cookies.  It was a delicious meal.  My frozen will have to wait for another day.
  5. Yesterday, I went to a concert at our state fair.  It was Colbie Caillat who opened for Gavin DeGraw.  It was enjoyable, but not one I would add to the top of my list.  Gavin was a lot more theatrical and interactive with the audience than I was expecting.  It's my mom's birthday weekend, so we did a lot this weekend to celebrate, this being one additional thing.
  6. I have a mole, in my armpit (basically) that Coen is obsessed with.  If he sees it from a distance, he will come over to me and poked at it until I tell him "enough" or hide it from him.
  7. There is a balloon at my desk that has been here for 3 weeks and it hasn't really moved since then.  Strange.
  8. My husband is having his tonsils out on Friday.  He needs a lot of encouragement about the surgery and while I try, he's not buying what I'm saying.  Send us some positive thoughts.
  9. There are 3 weeks left in my pregnancy.  3 weeks, folks.  That's insane.
  10. I've been using the crap out of my 35mm lens.  It's been awesome and I cannot wait to load the pictures I have taken to share with you. I think you're going to love them.
  11. Work is going well, but I start to get anxiety about what's going to happen while I'm out.  I also worry about "wrapping things up before I leave"... just fearing that I'm forgetting something.  I have a list that keeps growing and I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing.  Either way, it's happening in 3 weeks.
  12. Have I mentioned that I'm taking a class this quarter?  I am.  I'm in college taking a class for my associates.  It ends in 2 weeks and has really been a lighter class, but I'm still doing it.  
  13. My sister was here this weekend with her husband and cat.  We spent a lot of time with them which was nice and we took one last picture together before my baby arrives.  She's 24 weeks pregnant and I'm 35... so it's getting really close to the end for me!  She's planning on coming to help with Coen while we are in the hospital, which is going to be a HUGE help.

Happy Monday!

    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.
