Welcome to Cube-Land

For the last 8 years, I worked for a company that was about 30 people when I started and grew to about 60 ish people when it was all said and done. It was a great company and I loved working with a lot of the people there.  But, as I reflect back, I see what ended up being a really great stepping stone in my professional career.

So now, I'm in cubical corporate America and I'm really enjoying it.  My other company was about 40 miles from my house and while it didn't seem far at first, after having two kids, it made it really seem too far from home.  In a given day, my round trip mileage would be about 107 miles, total.  Makes me a little sick.  No wonder I was filling up on gas every 3 days or so... My company now is only 19 miles from my house and on any given day, I drive a little less than 60 miles total.  It's amazing.

Corporate America is sort of entertaining, honestly.  They have these places under lock and key and it's a nightmare to just get hired externally... but once you're in, it's really strange the people that work here.  It's glamorous, don't get me wrong, but it's not visibly glamorous, if you catch my drift.

And don't get me started on technology because Lord knows I've been S.P.O.I.L.E.D. the last 8 years and NOTHING will compare to what they would do for us, there.  My current techy objectives are... get a second monitor, raise both monitors up with arms or a stand, buy a wireless mouse/keyboard combo, buy mouse pad and from there, I'll work on the rest of my needs.  But getting those things would make me a happy camper!

Lastly... attire in the corporate world is awesome in a different way.  Before I could literally roll in with leggings, a sweat shirt and flip flops, every day... here, I can't wear leggings (unless I camouflage them under a dress and boots to make them look like tights) and I have to wear makeup every day, too!

I really do love it here... Some people from my old company believe I have lost my mind, but it's honestly a really great move for me.  I'm so excited to get my job and tasks going to a point where things start to feel a little more natural.  It will take time and I know that but I hope it comes together soon!

More to come from "Cube-Land" soon...

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 webmd.com 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.
