So, I survived my first round of Clomid and it wasn't as bad as everyone made it I was happy about that. I had some minor side effects from it, actually really only one that I noticed and that was hot glad I have at least 30 years until I have to deal with those every day and every night :) After I was done with the Clomid, Dr. Spencer had me taking estrogen and pretty much that made me emotional about everything! And to our surprise...I didn't even finish it before ovulating and going in for an IUI (sorry for all the confusing terms, I am becoming an expert at all this stuff) Anywho...after trying Clomid, estrogen, and getting an IUI we are hoping to find out some GOOD NEWS in two weeks and if no good news comes, then I guess my next post might be a "venting" post :) So while I have to go through the 2WW (two week wait) I am going to first work on being....

**PATIENT (I don't think this word is even in my vocabulary)

Second, I am going to work on being....

**OPTIMISTIC (optimistic that this will work, and optimistic that if it doesn't, it's not the end of the world. )

My sweet husband is being so positive and it's rubbing off on me just a little bit :) we want this to work so bad, and hope maybe, just maybe this could be the month.

Prayers are welcome... :)

How different would life be..

...if it worked out how you had it planned?

I had imagined life right now and in a couple of months being a little different then it is.

I'm having a hard day today and it certainly doesn't help that I am taking clomid and all of the sudden my emotions are EVERYWHERE...

Here is to an easier day tomorrow!

Many prayers for us would be greatly appreciated :) We are always in need!

Proud to be an American...

SEPTEMBER 11th, is only two days away...

This will be the ten year anniversary since the horrific event...

Whenever I think life is hard...I try to imagine what these people and their families had to endure on this day... and than I am HUMBLED.

I hope that on September 11th we can all remember those who have fought for our FREEDOMS... they will never be forgotten for their COURAGE AND STRENGTH that day.

Labor Day Weekend 2011

We sure had a fun holiday weekend! It started out with going to dinner at Cafe Rio and Bowling with Jeremy and Chelsea...we love these guys and even though we only live 5 seconds away from each other, we hardly ever hang out...So we are trying to be better at that.

We had so much fun at Boondocks. We went bowling and then the "boys" played a bunch of games. We won tickets, but gave them away to a boy that looked like he would enjoy them a lot more than us.

After our fun night with Jeremy and Chelsea, We headed home to get some sleep because at 5:45am we would be waking up to head to SWISS DAYS!!! I know this is crazy to admit, but this would be my first year going to Swiss Days and lets just most certainly won't be the last. I have already began making plans for next year :)

We went to Swiss Days with the Huston clan and shopped our little hearts out...LITERALLY! I have never seen so many booths in my life. I was able to walk away with Jewelry and more jewelry, flower hair clips and pins, some VERY cute wrapping paper for Christmas and these two adorable shirts...

I have a crazy obsession with owls and birds lately...

They are for those babies I will have one day...hopefully soon. Yeah...I am one of those people that has literally a dresser full of random things like this. My mom has even bought stuff here and there that is on clearance or if it's really cute. So...lets hope I have a girl first because I have a lot of girl stuff :) and if not that will be fine too! I'll take what I can get ha ha

After shopping our little hearts out, we shopped even more at the outlets and then headed home. I was so tired by the end of the day that I called it an early night and went to sleep.

On Sunday we went to church and then went out to visit my mom and dad. The weather was perfect, so we spent most of the time outside. Plus that is where Charlie likes to be. John did some service by helping my dad dig two holes for the trees he had bought a couple days before. What a good husband he is :) I love my parents and I don't get to see them near as much as I would like. But soon we will get to spend a whole week together on vacation.

Monday consisted of sleeping, doing a little more shopping (including the purchase of a Fall wreath for the front door, which I will probably hang up this next week), and homework.

All-in-all it was a great back to work and school :)
