I'm a slacker!

I know I know I know! A week without a post! In my defense we left for Mississippi on Friday and made it back home at 11pm on Monday with Devin in tow. It's been a whirlwind since then with day camp, work, cleaning up, unpacking,etc.

Joey and I had a blast on the way to Mississippi - we always enjoy the time we get to spend alone in the car on the way there since we know any semblance of normalcy will disappear for the next month once we get there.

I, of course , took some pictures on the way there...

Me - still smiling after 7 hours in the car!

We arrived in Mississippi at midnight Saturday and picked Devin up pretty early Saturday morning. We then stopped by his Aunt Peggy's house. I hadn't met her yet and thought she was just the sweetest thing ever. Her house was gorgeous too!

Aside from that, Joey did two tattoos, we had to put new back tires on his truck and then it was up bright and early Monday morning to drive Devin and his cousin Dawson back to FLA. The drive took forever and I was in a foul mood Tuesday after having my seat kicked for 13 hours straight!

Now in the baby dance news, unfortunately this month wasn't our month but everything did go exactly according to schedule. I O'd late but AF started exactly 15 days after I O'ed so I'm going to look at it as a positive thing rather than being disappointed that we didn't get a BFP. I'll keep taking my fertility blend and consult with the dr. on the 15th. In the mean time I guess we'll just keep practicing!

Now its time to head home, pick Dev up from camp and head over to my Mom and Dad's for dinner and swimming!

Rain Rain Go Away!

Tuesday 5/19/09
(My Daddy's 60th Birthday!!)

And then there was Wednesday 5/20/09

It's day 4 of pretty much continuous rain here. I know we need the rain so I'm not going to complain too much but my back is killing me from all this rain. My yard is a swamp. We can't walk the dog and Joey is being a grump from getting soaked at work everyday. I totally understand being miserable from being wet for 8 hours a day but its not my fault! Go complain to the rain gods!

For those following from sk, I'm still in the 2ww - hopefully it'll be a bfp but I'm just not thinking it will. The back pain is too close to what I get before AF. If thats the case then I'm going to go ahead and get the ball rolling on more tests when I go in for my followup us on the 8th.

Life will be crazy busy until then with my Dad's citizenship ceremony tomorrow. Then on Friday we leave for Mississippi to pick Devin up nd bring him back for 5 weeks. Joey is supposed to be handling getting eveything prepared for that and so far...he's put a shelf in Devin's room. Hasn't signed him up for Day Camp yet, pulled his stuff down from the attic, etc. I'm a total organization guru so ordinarily all that would be completed by now but I decided Joey really needs to step up and take care of things since he is Devin's father. He just gets use to me handling everything and doesn't really have the drive to do things himself. I have enough on my pplate already so I decided it was sink or swim time and at almost 31 yrs old - he was going to have to strap on his big boy pants and do things on his own. It really hasn't gone well so far but I'm not giving in!

Well that's my rant for today...I think the rain is making me a little crabby too!

I am finally, finally allowing myself to have a little hope. First things first – Joey had his procedures yesterday – an pandescopy and colonoscopy. Nothing on the colon and some irritation/redness in the pandescopy. The doctor took a biopsy but is pretty sure its just gastritis. Joey will continue on the Nexium and we’re just going to make sure we don’t eat things that will flare it up. Joey has actually been really great about this already. He’s been sticking to salads and other healthy choices when he eats so I’m really proud of him. We’re thinking it’s going to be lots of chicken and fish which we love both so it’s really a win win for us!

Now onto why I have hope. I worked a halfer at the office yesterday since I had to be there with Joey for his procedures. I drove home at lunch so we could be at the hospital at 1pm. On my way home I got to thinking about the tech saying that the dominant follicle meaning I had either just ovulated or I was about to. I still had a whole box of ovulation strips sitting at home so I figured why the hell not, I’ll take one when I get home. (Side note – I hadn’t gotten a positive opk in the past two months thanks to that damn cyst) So I got home, did my thing and expected to look at the strip see the lighter line and toss the test in the trash like I had done with every other one. I stared at it and holy smokes the test line actually looked as dark as the control line. I didn’t believe it so I took the test over to Joey and asked him. He said yep – they are the same color! Woo HOO!!! I’m actually ovulating. I then looked at my dear husband who has been on a liquid diet since the night before and is about to have tubes stuck in places they should never go and say to him – that means I get booty tonight! Aren’t we just the most romantic and thoughtful couple ever?

So even if this month isn’t our lucky month at least I am ovulating and we can be hopeful that it will happen eventually. In other news I have been bored out of my mind at work since most of my projects are either completed or I am waiting on the ok to start work on them. I don’t do bored well. I’ve read about 50 or so industry magazines and can tell you more about baking technology and innovation then you’ll ever need to know!

Sometimes it all just works out!

I have to say things seem to all be falling into place the way they should be. Joey and I celebrated our First Wedding Anniversary this past weekend. It was truly a wonderful time and the first time we've really relaxed in quite awhile.

Joey's mom Tonya came over Thursday night and brought us a roast she had made for dinner. It was delish and we enjoyed hanging out with her. She stayed the night and then it was off to work the next day for all of us. After work I spotted Joey at the car wash vacuuming out his truck so I went ahead and had him do my car too. Then it was off to the Chiropractor and a quick stop at Beall's Outlet for the cutest tube tops. That night we took Joey's mom out to dinner for Mother's Day, walked the dog and tucked in early so we could be at UNIVERSAL bright and early. Woo Hoo.

So we woke up around 7am and started getting ready. I packed all the essentials, walked the dog and we were off!

We got to Universal around 8:40 and the park opened at 9 so our timing was perfect. Joey and I really had a blast. The lines were short we managed to ride every ride we wanted to and spent some great quality time together. We didn't leave the park until around 7:30 and we were exhausted. In fact we were so tired we had to have a drink before we continued on.

So Sunday was our actual anniversary and we went over to my Mom and Dad's and spent the day with them and my sister's family. It was a day for lounging poolside and I for one thoroughly enjoyed it.

Now for the best news of all. I went back to the GYN today for a followup ultrasound concerning the HUGE cyst I had and..........the sucker is completely gone! My ovaries look completely healthy and normal with lots of healthy follicles and one dominant follicle on the left ovary so who knows? Maybe this will be our month after all! I go back on the 8th for one more follow up but she said it all looked great and was really pleased.

Joey also has his scopes this week but we already know from the CT scan that he has a hiatal hernia so we've started changing how we cook and eat in order to keep from aggravating it. It's going to be complete lifestyle change for him but for the better I'm sure.

Finally, Two weeks from today we will be on our way back from Mississippi with Devin. We are really looking forward to having him for the month and have started getting his room set up for him again.
