The wait sucks

I know we were probably way early trying this month, but since the DH is OOT for the month--that was our only time for a visit. My temps look good, but I think they are just playing mindtricks with me. No hope for this cycle based on when I O'd, but alas I must wait until March 2nd to test if I haven't started the next cycle by then. Oh, the wait. BLOWS!

Laissez les bon temps rouler!

I'm so ready for Mardi Gras! I'm going to the Spanish Town parade tomorrow, with some friends since DH is still OOT for work. He will be there in spirit though...

This was from the last parade we went to I guess a couple years ago. He's klassy, huh? Fortunately, he came to his senses about facial hair.

And this year's theme for the parade?....

Isn't it FANTASTIC!!!

Guess what I'm eating?


Because it's worth the shot, right?

Plus, I lurve fruit and trying to eat healthier anyway. Makes for a great snack. Nom nom nom.

Curbing the fever...

I'm so going to the hospital today--one of my best friends from school's little sis just had her baby this morning! She went in at 1am to be induced and popped out baby Adalyn at 8:38am.

I was so close to the whole family from 3rd grade until we graduated HS. Sadly, we went our separate ways in college, but now we've started getting to know each other again. Her and her DH were the ones we went to dinner with a few weeks ago that I posted about. Anyway, her lil sis was always like my sister, since I'm an only child, so I'm so excited for her!

Maybe I can steal a pic to post later!

Happy Valentine's Day

Still out of town visiting DH during the O time and conveniently V Day. Waiting for him to get back to the hotel from work today, bored out of my everloving mind, in the skimpies for a SURPRISE attack....which will not be so spontaneous since he will come in and then need to shower since he reeks after work. Picked up some rose petals to add a lil spice. I'm a dork!

It's very tempting to open my gift since it's in 2 bags sitting right in front of me for the past couple of days. Can you tell what it is? I can't.

I just got him some candy and a couple of DVDs. We're trying to save moola for future spawn. :)

Anyway, don't be surprised if I write yet another blog today since I'm so incredibly bored. Leaving here tomorrow.

So, TTCing...

With a few nights under our belt.....It's very strange to be going your whole sexually-active life of condoms, BCP and pull 'n pray to actually trying to get pg. Makes for an odd realization mid-romp.

I'm so nervous today.

I'm nervous that this week we'll actually be TTCing. I mean, it's actually come to fruition. We've waited 2 years to even try.

I'm nervous because we only have a window until July to conceive this year because of work. There's a great possibility that it won't happen in the 6 months. My patience may not make it another year!

I'm nervous that I haven't spent enough time charting, etc to be as best prepared for the long TTC haul.

I'm nervous that this year we could be parents.

My excitement is masked by my anxiety. Trust me--there's plenty of excitement there! But, I'm totally not looking forward to the 2ww. And yet, there I go again babbling about TTC when we haven't even completed the first cycle yet. This should be fun.

Perhaps this should be a good time to mention I am OCD about many areas in my life! Joy!

My Turn Day

Stop talking. Start doing.

A syndicated radio show that I listen to has started this campaign on volunteerism. February 10th they are calling for everyone to just announce what they are doing by your media sources (MySpace, Facebook, blog, etc). It can be big or small, just do hour's worth.

Here's some more details...

Need help with a volunteer move? Try this site:

I'm trying to figure out what I'm doing! You'll hear it on the 10th!
