So, the marching band has returned with great fanfare to my uterus, I was hoping that since it’s only been a month since my last period I wouldn’t get super vomit cramps – I am not so lucky.  I’m going to take the advice from the comments on my last post and call my RE this week – I’m going out of town tomorrow so it will have to wait till Tuesday.


Things have been a bit crazy the last week, I thought that upon returning from vacation and all the craziness that entailed things would calm down – I was wrong. We are leaving for Lincoln in the morning to go see Mumford & Son’s and celebrate my early b-day (I still refuse to believe I am turning 32).  We find out in a little over a week whether or not the MIL was able to get approved for the necessary loan so that we could move on with getting a HELOC for our house.  I’ve been a bit on pins and needles regarding this as we have sooooooooooo much riding on it.  I think the worry from that (I’m a worrier – it’s what I do) has completely fubar’d my sleeping schedule and it seems to be playing havoc on the hubs as well.  I’ve spent time every day at the post office mailing stuff I’ve been selling on amazon, and we’ve also had to play three rounds of “take the dogs to the vet” which is a production in and off itself and requires taking them one at a time because they all can’t be in the car at the same time.  I’ve had no motivation to cook so we’ve been living on crap food for the past week – I’m usually pretty anal about making a super duper menu and following that.  This week we have lived off of pizza, sandwiches and burger king – I hate myself :/ .   Well off I go to eat my tendergrill chicken sandwich and be self-loathing about it. 😛




the world keeps spinning on

8 Jul

Happy belated 4th of July!  We didn’t really do much to celebrate the holiday, neither the hubs nor myself are big fans of fireworks and since we are in the middle of a God awful heat wave having a cook out was pretty much not gonna happen either.  So, we celebrated by watching Sherlock on Netflix.  Seriously, if you haven’t watched that show – WATCH IT.  It’s brilliant.  I’m just bummed that Netflix doesn’t have the second season and we are gonna have to wait forever for our turn at the library (we are 27th in the queue…boo).

Hubs has been working a ton of overtime, we are hoping that by doing so we can get our credit cards paid off sooner (we still owe roughly 5k, which was mainly from the meds for our IUI cycles).  As soon as we get our cards paid off we can move on to IVF and I am incredibly antsy to start down that road.  I just want to feel like we are doing something because currently I feel like we are stuck in limbo.  I know logically we are doing stuff to help, i.e paying off debt, eating better, royal jelly, etc., but even with that it still feels like limbo.  I mean I haven’t been violated with the dildo wand in awhile, I’m starting to forget how much it sucks and we can’t have that, now can we?

We are preparing for our vacation (yes, I am the type of OCD nerd who needs a month to plan a vacation – sue me).  Again, if anyone has any suggestions for awesome things to do in the Northern California region & Las Vegas, let me know!!!! We have a pretty lenient itinerary so I’m looking for some activities to round out the trip.  A lot of people had recommended some winery tours to us, but neither the hubs or I drink wine, so that’s out.

In other “fun” news, we managed to snag tickets to a Mumford & Sons concert about 3hrs from where we live for late August.  I’m jazzed, I’ve wanted to see them in concert for awhile and my husband has never actually been to a concert (sad, I know).  So we are both excited.  I turn 32 *shudder* like 8 days after the concert so we are going to spend the night in a hotel and call it a birthday celebration!

Lots of fun stuff on the horizon, now if I can just keep myself from worrying about every little detail it will be a Hanukkah miracle!

weekly roundup

16 Jun

Here are some tidbits from my week:

* I placed an order for Royal Jelly (as per one of my posts earlier this week) and supposedly it was delivered according to UPS but it and the present we ordered for my father magically went missing.  We are pretty sure the issue was on UPS’s end and not that one of our shady neighbors stole them.  According to the tracking they both happened to be delivered at the same time (even though they were shipped from different companies with different shipping methods).  Luckily the vitamin shoppe agreed to replace the order, haven’t been able to get in contact with the other company as they are closed for the weekend, hopefully they will do the same.  Very frustrating – and I have to try to figure out something else to get my dad for fathers day.

*Haven’t heard back from the state regarding our Dog Foster application, hopefully it won’t be much longer! I had hoped since I’m in the same city as the state department of Agriculture (who processes the application) it would be done in a more timely fashion – apparently not.

*The husband & I gave up cable awhile back to save money (a.k.a I’m cheap) – but to replace it we did opt for netflix and we are able to get HBOGO (thanks mom & her direct tv) on our XBOX.  So I’ve constantly been on the look out for shows to watch from these two sources, the hubs and I have been watching “Psych” together.  I have a harder time finding stuff to watch by myself as most of the stuff I would want to watch he also would want to watch.  I recently finished “Mad Men” (which seriously if you haven’t watched yet then get to it!).  Today I decided to start watching “Boardwalk Empire”, I’m only three episodes in so far but it looks pretty promising.  Anyone have any other shows they might recommend that would be available on Netflix or HBO?

So that’s about it in general type of news – I’ll be doing a post later today regarding some stuff that is infertility related!
