Baby Boone#3 August 20, 2009
what a month! June 5, 2009
Well I know I am not updating here as much as I used to, but I do find that in a way its sort of a good thing. In our support group last month we did an exercise of how we felt right after our loss and how we feel now. I went back and read all of my blog posts and I really see my ups and downs. But I also see that as I start to feel better and I start to be able to get back into living life and looking forward, I haven’t blogged as much. I’ve felt good this last week. I hope that in the next few weeks things get a lot better.
Things have been crazy busy lately. Which is good. I like staying busy. Keeps my brain from thinking! We re-did my office and its amazing!! I will post pics later. We have re-done our flower bed, cleaned the house, gone to family events, military events, and tried to squeze one on one time in too. Who knew itd be so hard!
As for our trying for another beautiful baby boone, no luck last month. I was late and really bummed when “it” came. But hey. I do finally get to celebrate my bday this year. 16 days!!! Ill be 22! (Wow!)
Where did that number come from? Yeah I’m not sure either!
Alright well time to head home from work!!
ready.set.destress!! May 22, 2009
Alright. Yes I need to destress. You would think my vacation would of handled that for me but I managed to come home and get completely stressed out again. My anxiety is through the roof! I have officially accepted that I was born without the stress management skill. I don’t have it.
Every little thing and even people litterally make me so stress I don’t know what to do with myself at times. The littlest thinks erk me. The littlest disagree ment seems like the end of the world.
Not to mention I’m losing hair by the handful!! Make that…. Handful(s). I’m talking 4-6 handfuls after showering and another 1-2 throughout the day. Its a wonder I’m not bald yet!!!
I can proudly say that this month I have not let ttc consume me (and I still managed to get stressed out). But I haven’t charted temps/discharge and I only peed on a stick for about 7 days and to be honest unless I make an effort to look at my fertility monitor, I can’t tell you what cycle day I’m on. I generally know which week but that’s about it. And I like it this way. Charting ruins me. Too stressful. I do know that AF (my period – aunt flow as other ttc-ers call it) should arrive next weekend. And I have pledged to myself that I will not test unless I miss my period.
So I’m ready for the weekend which for me approx. Starts at 130am on fridays since I work nights. We do have a busy one tho… Sat is tailgating at the race and sunday is the race and we get to go with the guard recruiting team, check out the pits and al that fun jazz!!
Okay well I’m back to work for now- I’m sure everyone can hear my thumbs texting away!!
Carnival Cruise #5 May 8, 2009
Well, today was a relaxing day. We had a “fun day at sea”. I got up at 830am to go get some lounge chairs. We laid out until about 2pm and then went to take a nap, which turned into sleeping until dinner!! (more…)
Hello! We are finally on our cruise! It’s about 930pm and we are chillen in our room because the tops of my feet are very badly sunburnt. (more…)
Carnival Cruise – Day #1 May 4, 2009
Hello! We are finally on our cruise! It’s about 930pm and we are chillen in our room because the tops of my feet are very badly sunburnt. And my feet are actually starting to swell so 8am first thing I’ll be checking out the medical center. (figures right? lol). I can’ hardly walk it hurts so bad. But we had a good two days in florida before our cruise. We flew in around noon and went to west palm beach to stay with M’s family. We went out to eat and then to bed the first night. Then woke up around 10am and went to the beach at 11am. Stayed from 11am-4pm. During this time is when I got sooo burnt! Well, the only thing that is burnt is the tops of my feet….
The VIP is awesome too. When we got to the port at noon-thirty, we were taken to a VIP lounge while everyone else had to stand in snake/queue lines. It took from 1230-3 for everyone else to get on and we got on right away! We were able to go have a few drinks and enjoy the ship until our luggage got to the room. Only downside to VIP is that your luggage gets on first, and to your room last! Because they fill up the luggage in the bottom of the boat and then when they set said they go through and deliver it to you. *oh well, worth it :)*
now we are hanging out on the ship. It’s fabulous! Our room is awesome, we have a king size bed, couch, vanity, bathroom, two big closets, private balcony. with a AWESOME view! We se sail at 4pm and slowly said good-bye to Miami Florida!!! We are officially out of the country! We had dinner at 6pm and had some awesome steak, mac n cheese and veggies and then some AMAZING *Chocolate Melting Cake*. It was like a thin cake layer with chocolate fudge in the middle. It’s to die for!!!! We actually have a table for four for dinner. We were sat with another couple who is from Ontario Canada. They are 21 & 22 and really nice. We will probably hang out with them a little. It’s their 2nd and 5th cruise. Glad we were sat with someone, we were worried about finding another couple our age to hang with.
We are going to hit up the 1030pm Welcome Aboard show and the probably turn in for the night because we are exhausted!!! We will be up first thing to see a dr about my feet because of the swelling (hopefully it’s better in the morning) and then we are heading out to the pool to relax and lay out – don’t worry – i’ll be wearing socks!!!
We have taken alot of pictures already but the internet is satellite and it’s slow. I have to type out my blogs and then get on and post them. And net is expensive too. So I’ll try to get on Wednesday and post some pictures but no promises!!
Have fun wherever you are!!! 🙂 We are having fun in the middle of the beautiful ocean!!!! Talk to you tomorrow with more updates!!!
(don’t worry mom- i’m fine just a little sun burn….. 🙂 )
