Vote 2012

I don't post political posts.  However, this one will be the one and only that you'll ever see... and it's not me spatting off my views or anything.  Just facts about the day I voted for a President.

Going into vote for this election, I was still a little on the fence about who I was going to vote.  Honestly.  Strange, maybe, but I was.  My husband and I were feeling the same way, and we even took a few polls/quizzes online to see what our results would be, if we laid everything out.  All times, we would only be a few points off from one side to the other.  Basically, not helping us understand anything.

Yesterday morning, before I went to vote, I got a text from my husband asking what I had decided.  I gave him my response and while he was thinking about voting for the opposite of my response, he didn't sway me one way or the other.  He simply said that it was my choice.

As I stood in front of the voting booth, I still wasn't sure, so I stood there a moment.  I thought about my views, values, and then the candidates' views and values... And knew exactly what I needed to do.

All along this race, I thought all things aside, I'm voting for this candidate.  I had a list of reasons and it just met my needs for why I would vote for this person.  That morning, when asked by my husband, I responded (without even batting an eye) with the other candidate's name.  Why the change?  For a split second, I questioned my reasoning and buckled.

So, I'm at the booth and I stopped to think and read all the candidates' names.  I remembered why I had such strong opinions about one candidate vs. the other.  And then I voted.

I'm confident in my decision.  And I felt really good about how I ended up voting.

Now, we wait to see the results.

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.
