As I sit at my desk, that faces a well traveled pathway, I find that I watch almost everyon that walks by and observe them in different ways.  Clearly I don't do this all day long, but it's something that I occassionally catch myself doing. 

I look at people and thin a lot of different things... I like her shirt... Oh!  I love that together... Dang, where is he headed?... Why are there so many people headed that way?... Boy, she must have hurt herself, poor thing... She must have been a gymnist when she was younger... I didn't know they made pants like that... Man, she walks slow... I love her glasses (and wish I wore them sometimes)... She looks sad, wonder what's wrong... He's still talking... She's got great style... I love that nail polish color... I have that sweater...I need a bag like that... I miss my long hair... My husband has that same shirt... Gosh he's tall... Etc...

I know this is silly, but I can't help myself sometimes.  Of all of those things, the one that drives me the most crazy lately are the people that just don't walk with purpose.  When I get out of my chair, I have a little mental list of what I need to do, where I need to go and about how long I hope that it will take me.  Some people just don't have that same drive.  Maybe it's a wacky thought but those that walk my desk with no motivation or pep in their step drive me a little nutty.

I mean, we are a big company with a lot of busy people and we all have stuff to do and things to get done.  Why wouldn't you want to have a little push behind you to get you moving when you're walking around?  The last thing I want someone thinking is boy... she moves slow... what is she doing? 

Maybe that's not for everyone and that's okay, but I guess I have to blame or thank this one on my dad.  When our feet hit the ground as kids, when we were with him at the zoo or the pizza hut or the beach or whatever... You better bet that he would want us to be moving.  And my dad, he walks with purpose.  Maybe not the right purpose or any real focused purpose but he walks and he reaches his goal, quick.  As kids we were always like 20 steps behind, but that's because he walked fast and with "purpose".  So now, when I see people who don't have that same drive, I just take notice and I also pass them at on the left at high speed because I don't have time to sit around and wait...

So at work, when I get up... I walk with a purpose.  I don't lotty-da around, I walk.  And I walk quickly. So.... Step to the side if you see me coming...

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.
