To Do Tomorrow
Wash Sheets Light some candles, it smells musty! Put away everything in suitcase Put sleeping bag outside Run dishwasher Scrub toilet Vacuum couch, floors Wipe down kitchen surfaces Grocery store Butcher shop
Well, I’m here. Alone. In our house. Ours. The television is turned on, though I’m only watching out of the corner of my eye. The lights are dimmed. The dog is sleeping next to me. The only thing missing is my husband. We talked on the phone for an entire hour, planning tomorrow and the rest of our week. We got excited about trying to make a baby. We laughed. He yawned. I...
I'm here, finally...
After five and a half hours of driving I’m finally back home. It didn’t take as long as I thought it would, the most annoying part was the L.A. traffic. (As I type this an ice cream truck is driving by, playing “Do Your Ears Hang Low” and kids are screaming!) It feels so good to be home. To know that he’ll be home very soon. The house is an odd combination of...
The next time I blog it will be from my own computer! :)
motor-t asked: We did a bit more than that.
I still haven’t packed. I’ll do it in the morning.
Attention all Californians! →
The California State Controller’s Office has a list of all of the unclaimed property (Read: Money) for all of it’s residents online. Check and see if you, any family members or friends, have any unclaimed money. I found $3000 for an aunt today. $125 for a friend, too. $40 for my parents. Sadly, none for me.
Tonight: We had sushi. It was delicious. Then we had ice cream. It was phenomenal. I didn’t get to talk to my husband. I need to finish packing, but I probably won’t. Is my last night in my hometown. I’m so tired. I’m excited to go home in the morning.
An Important TTC Revelation
It took my husband and I a long time to wrap our heads around the fact that yes, indeed, we do want children and we’d like to start trying now. Some night while laying in bed we would picture our future life together and children were always present. Though we never said it outright, “We want kids.”Sometimes it even involved us chasing each other around the house and screaming...
Have I mentioned that I should be packing?
Yes, yes. I should be gathering all of my belongings together for the long, long, long drive home. Six hours in a car with only a dog as a companion is considered torture by my standards. Here’s my list of things to remember: Suitcase Makeup, toiletries Perfume, hair dyes All sewing stuff Shoes Dog bed, dog toys, leash Phone charger Teapot lamp Pillow That list might look...
Drinking wine and dieting don’t go very well together, in my opinion. I went out with my best friend last night and had four glasses of wine, which is a bit much. Though usually I’m fine because I have a lot of food in my belly. Well, last night I didn’t. This morning I’m paying for it. I’ve got to go eat something, clean out my purse and then go check on my...

This is a bit too much information, but I have...
I’m going to post this just for my own records. The OPK I’m doing has yet to show any signs of a jackpot. But, about an hour ago when I went to the restroom my CM was the consistency of egg whites. I only find it when I wipe, never in my underwear. Have I ovulated? Maybe. Am I still going to continue with the OPK? Yes. Do I still hope there’s a shot for us this month?...
To Do Today (T-2 days until I leave)
Laundry Fold laundry Eat Breakfast, get ready Continue packing Finish Addressing all of the birthday party invitations Work on my penny rug pillow Talk to my husband on the phone Say goodbye to some family Go to the farmer’s market: buy fruit! DRINK BEER! Hang out with my best friend. Have a great night!
nothing tastes as good as skinny feels– my new daily affirmation (via jennafamous)
bullymommy2012 asked: Hey! I'm sure you've been over it with someone at some point, but if the docs haven't brought it up, I just wanted to say that I know my step-mom and I are both actually on a 42-day cycle instead of the more common 28-day cycle, which throws off ovulation dates. Of course, I don't know your exact dates, but it's something you may wanna consider looking into if the...
todayandforeverever-deactivated asked: okay! good luck w. alone time. & i am VERY interested, i've seen things you've made, i love them. you literally made me happy w. that post about your etsy store :D
Still no pink line
I’m continuing with the OPK I bought. It’s CD 15 and still no dark pink line signaling my LH surge. Of only the line signaling ovulation could hold out three more days, then we would have a good chance of making a baby this month. I just hope it shows I ovulate at all… Have any of you ttc ladies done an OPK and come up empty handed?

My First Week Back on the Wagon
So, I completed my first official week back on Weight Watchers. I dieted and exercise alone for the two weeks before that and lost six pounds during that time. The first week back on the wagon is always a hard one for me. I was stressed due to family drama, went to two parties, had some problems with tracking and really slowed down the exercise. And I still lost 3 pounds! Congratulations to...
todayandforeverever-deactivated asked: when do you start selling? :)
Not so many nights until I’m sleeping next to my husband again…
My Etsy Store
So, being the voracious crafter that I am, I decided to start an Etsy store. I took the first step of signing myself up as a seller on Etsy six weeks ago. I chose a name, which I now regret. Don’t judge me, I settled on How Cute Couture. How Cute was already taken. Those two little words are spoken from my lips so often, I just had to use them. I wish I would have done something not so...
Well, according to the OPK kit, I don’t ovulate on CD 14. That’s fine by me, I’d really like to hold out for another five or so days. I just hope that I do ovulate at some point during the month.
