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.

Yesterday was CD1 – today was my first temperature!

Here we go again!

On another note – work pretty much drives me bananas every day lately.  I can’t stand some of the people I work with (mind you, most are fantastic, just a couple that get under my skin).  The problem is, I cannot seem to stop allowing those couple of people from digging under my skin.  I also had a problem with turning off my “give a shit” that I have for my job.  I really take what I do to heart.  I work very hard and care about the situation I’m in – my clients – and the way that I’m viewed by our management team.  It seems that no matter what I do, I can’t change their perception.  They seem to think that we stop selling at the end of the month when we hit quota (how they get that when I frequently double my quota is beyond me, but whatever).

Recently, I’ve found the off switch rather easy to flip.

Back to the wordle of the day:


And She arrives… September 29, 2010

3 Days till AF September 28, 2010

I know it is technically a bit premature, but I’m chalking this one up to getting experience.  I don’t feel pregnant at all and I got that BFN.  Right now, it feels like I’m just waiting for CD1 to begin again so we can start all over.  

At least I’m not completely obsessed with the waiting anymore…


BFN? September 27, 2010

So I took an early pregnancy test, and it gave me a BFN.  While I know that I was only 10dpo and 5 days before AF is scheduled to arrive…it was still quite disappointing.


Stress… September 23, 2010

So in my current situation, stress is not a good thing, right?  Yea, right.  Well, my mother’s fiance has been living with us for a while.  HE came up here initially to help with Lori, but also to get a job so that my mother can eventually move up here as well.  This week he’s going home to visit, so we brought him to the airport on Wednesday.  When we got home, there was an alarm going off in his room, so I went up to turn it off.  On the bed I find letters from some bitch that have been written to him and sent to MY house.  In these letters, this girl goes on and on about how she loves him and blah blah blah.  Now, this is MY mother that you are fucking around on.  You are in MY house.  You are giving out MY address.  UGHH

Needless to say, I called my mother and tell her what’s going on.  She calls him and he says that it’s a girl who wrote him but he told her not to write him again because he was only her friend and blah blah blah.  Of course, I don’t believe him.  And, of course, she does.  I get into his email and Facebook (quite the easy task) and find that not only is he receiving love letters….he is receiving pictures of all these women’s lady parts.  NOT ONLY is he receiving these pictures, he’s SENDING PICTURES OF HIMSELF, EXPOSED, to these women.  NOT ONLY is he sending those pictures, but they were taking IN MY OFFICE SITTING IN MY CHAIR ON MY COMPUTER AND MY CAMERA.  NOT ONLY is that the case, but he also has a profile on HORNYMATCHES.COM where he states that he is looking for women in our area for one on one sex.

I call my mother back and tell her this.  She is not near as upset as I want her to be.  Seems like she is not going to do anything about it.  WHAT THE FUCK EVER.  Lori and I decide he’s not coming back to our house.

Here’s where it gets complicated.  Obviously she’s going to stay with him.  The problem is not letting him come back here doesn’t hurt him – it hurts her.  He can’t get a job down there for ANYTHING.  Therefore, he’s coming back.  Back to my house.  And there’s not really anything I can do about it…




Still Waiting… September 22, 2010

So, of course, I’m still waiting.  I’m currently 6DPO, which may as well be the middle of hell as far as I’m concerned.  5 days before I can even BEGIN to do early (expensive) tests….which most likely will be negative….when I could wait 9 days and take the free tests that came with our swimmers…..UGH

I did notice today that I have an aversion to Diet Pepsi (trust me, I can drink me some Diet Pepsi normally) and a craving for Chocolate Milk.  Noticing this started a quite interesting conversation between my friend J and I (possibly the best bit of advice I’ve ever gotten).  She said that if I am pregnant, when I start getting morning sickness, do NOT drink Chocolate milk.  Instead, she suggests, drink Kool-Aid.  Why, might you ask?  Well, apparently Kool-Aid doesn’t taste as terrible coming back up as Chocolate milk. (Yum!)

I did find a new website to be obsessed with (  Can you believe that a bunch of TWWers would WANT to be obsessed about what “symptoms” everyone else has EVER had??  It’s completely consumed me!!

Although, I did find this quite amusing

So finally, the wordle of the day is.

Ok, I don’t FEEL pregnant…..but what does pregnant feel like at this stage?
I want to be pregnant so badly….ugh!
In the meantime, let’s do a stupid survey
This survey is a little bit different. Instead of using text answers, you have to answer each question with a picture you find. With each question, just type in your answer in the search field, and post the picture that answers it.  If you want to use your own pictures, you’re definitely more than welcome!
Have fun!
1. What’s your name?

2. How old are you?

3. What month were you born in?

 4. Where do you live?

5. Do you have a son or a daughter?

6. What is your favorite pasttime?

7. Favorite food?

8. Favorite drink?

9. Are you married, single, or in a relationship?

10. Any pets?

 11. Favorite season?

12. Favorite musical artist?

          Or at least I think so….OMG I COULD BE PREGNANT RIGHT NOW!  I know that the odds are that it didn’t happen on the first time, but I’m so very hopeful that it did!  I am so ready to share my life with a little one.  I can’t wait to bring him/her home and take pictures of his/her little feet!  I can’t wait to go shopping for all the fun baby stuff, bring my mom up here to be with me, experience a little life growing inside of me.

          For so long I didn’t think that having a child was going to be an option for me.  My partner is older and has kids of her own.  When it finally became a possibility, I’m just completely overwhelmed with emotions about it.  I’m finally at a place in my life where I feel like I’m able to take care of a child.  I’m a little anxious about the waiting, but I’m really not afraid at all! 

          Is it weird that I, randomly throughout the day, reach up to pinch my bbs?  I read that an early sign of pregnancy is sore bbs, so I am wishing wishing wishing them to be painful!  Of course, this early on there really aren’t any signs.  At this point, either I am or I’m not…..wait wait wait


#2 is complete! September 16, 2010

          So the second insemination is done!  I SOO hope that it works!  I’m so excited!  Now I just have to wait, and wait, and wait till I can take a test to see if it did!

So, what to do for the next 2 weeks?


#1 is complete! September 15, 2010

          So last night we did our first insemination.  It was quite the interesting and entertaining process.  Lori decided she wanted play doctor so she put on her eye protection and oven mits to get the specimen out of the cryo-tank (SOOO like a doctor lol).

20 minutes to defrost
3 minutes to inseminate
30 minutes of basically standing on my head!
Here are some photos for your enjoyment.
