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.

The BEST Christmas Gift (Second only to a BFP)! December 17, 2010

I got a call last night from my mom.  It was about 9 pm my time, which is REALLY late for her.  She told me that she had sent our Christmas gifts and got the confirmation that they were delivered and didn’t want it left outside.  I checked the front door and there was nothing there.  I went back inside and she said that they had left it in front of the garage.  I let her know that when I got home from work there was nothing there, so she told me they had JUST delivered it.

Now, it’s VERY strange for FedEx to leave anything in front of the garage and it’s EVEN STRANGER for them to do it at 9 pm….but OK.

I went out into the garage and opened the door…..there stands my mom with a huge red bow on top of her head!

I was JUST COMPLAINING that I missed my family and was really sad that I wasn’t going to be able to be with them for Christmas this year.  I have no idea how she kept something this big a secret, but she was able to get a plane ticket and have them shuttle her to my house without Lori or I having A SINGLE CLUE that she was coming.  She’s going to be here for a whole two weeks!  I’m so excited that it won’t just be Lori and I here on Christmas day!

I also found out some news that was not so fun – apparently my little cousin is pregnant – the one that ran off with the 56 year old drug dealer.  Apparently she’s pregnant by him now.  Yay for more family drama!    I find it quite upsetting that she, at 19, got pregnant by a man with 56 year old swimmers by accident when Lori and I have been trying with PERFECT timing and PERFECT swimmers for 4 months now and have NOTHING!!

Anyway, MERRY CHRISTMAS TO US and our fabulous Christmas Gift!

 

Was that the weekend?? December 13, 2010

First things first, please jump on over to Marinating on life – Defining family and congratulate their BFP!!

Also, over at 2 Chicks 1 Hatchling the ladies just welcomed their baby girl into the world!

Congrats to both of you on making it to these milestones in your journeys!

Oh man do I feel like we didn’t even have a break! Saturday was spent getting ready for our Cajun Christmas Celebration (which, by the way, went WONDERFULLY! – pictures to come) and Sunday was spent cleaning up the mess. Now I find myself here on Monday morning wondering if that really was the weekend and now I have to wait 5 more days to get a real break!?!?!

Our therapy session for the doc is tomorrow at 8:30.  I’m not feeling near as nervous about it as I was previously.  It is what it is I suppose.  I love that it brings us one step closer to having our little one!

 

TGIF!! December 10, 2010

Oh how I love Fridays!!  Just have to make it through a few more hours and I’m FREE for the weekend! I’m even more excited this week because tomorrow is our 2nd Annual Cajun Christmas Celebration! So far there are about 15 people confirmed to be there, and I’m sure some who were invited who didn’t respond to our little event page on FB. I love having everyone over to our house, however I have a TON of stuff that I need to do before tomorrow afternoon

  • put the bedroom door back on its hinges – we had to remove it when we bought our new bed
  • steam clean the carpet (yay for having dogs!)
  • clean out the garage for the smokers
  • wrap our white elephant gifts
    • I’ll have pictures of them after the party!
  • cook a TON of food
    • Cajun Ham, Red Beans and Rice, Gumbo, Jambalaya
  • bring in our tables and set up the spread
  • hopefully have our Landlord come out to fix/replace our dryer that isn’t working – I’m down to the last of my good clothes and moving on to the ones that are in the back of my closet because I HATE them.
  • final touches for decorations
  • dress the pups in their little Christmas outfits!
  • have time to take a shower and get dressed???

I have NO IDEA how all of that is going to get done. ESPECIALLY when Lori’s FOOT IS BROKEN! Yes, you read that right.  She ran over her foot with her scooter and fractured it in 2 places.  There’s also a deep tissue contusion.  She’s got to wear a big boot now for the next 3-4 weeks.  I’m at least thankful that it will be off for Florida (would suck to be on the beach wearing a huge medical boot!).  This is the 4th time in 5 years that she’s broken her foot somehow.  She’s done everything from slip on ice to dropping a gallon of milk on them.

Anyway – time to get to work.
