The road less traveled…

My partner and I were attempting to become pregnant. For many reasons – including my sanity – we have put that on the back burner for now and are just working on walking down the road less traveled. We've been through Katrina – moved to Colorado – and our next adventure is headed to California.

It’s amazing how I can feel absolutely hopeless, write a little post, and get tons of positive response and encouragement.  Thank you all very much for those little words – they really mean so much.

Today I called to report the beginning of my cycle.  Since we dcided to get a little more aggressive, I start Clomid today for the next 5 days and go in for bloodwork.  I start OPK on the 18th and go in for an ultrasound on the 20th.  Hopefully all this extra monitoring will help with our timing and this is the last time that we have to do this!

I watched Extreme Couponing last night and I have to say that I am completely fascinated by these ladies!  The first one in the show got 2K worth of groceries for LESS THAN $100 DOLLARS!  How on EARTH do you do that???

Finally, I’m really interested in doing this new 30 day challenge – the cool thing is it’s a PHOTO challenge.  You may already be aware, but I LOVE photography.  Hopefully this one will keep me occupied and not bore me!

  2. Flight – anything in flight (animal, machine, etc.)
  3. Fire – Please don’t burn anything down just to take a photo!

    I hope the extra stuff you are doing for this cycle pays off with the timing. hope hope hope!!!
    my sis in law used to do the couponing thing. eventually she quit cause most of the coupons are for “junk” food.

    Sadly, the answer to that is that she committed fraud to do that: But! I’ve had some pretty nifty legit deals where I got tons of stuff for $2. It’s kind of a fun hobby if you want something other than babies to think about for a while…
