Wow, it's been a year since my last blog...
To think, the things that have happened in a year.
First and foremost, of course, the thing that still pangs my heart, still makes me sad, still makes me jealous, bitter...
The lost of what had been our first 'real' pregnancy....god, d... Read more
Yesterday, I worked for 16 hours. Around 11am, the opportunity for an AA (leaving without pay but an authorized absence, coveted by nursing) was presented. Now, we have an AA list (people who want one), but when you're already at work, you're as... Read more
Well, I got wrapped
I've been on and off this weight loss journey for a while now, and it strikes me how much I still always want to instantly see a difference.
I know, it takes time.
Well my neighbor, who is (my) nurse practitioner, sells It Works produ... Read more
A year? Wow.
How dismaying to realize it has been over a year since we started trying to create our own mini-me.
A year slips by so quietly some times, but trust me...
I remember the first exciting feelings of finishing up the last pack of pills.

Ugh, this mood.
I am pretty sure I am past general sadness and just a little bit depressed, very minor. I say this because of my propensity to want to stay in bed and my lack of motivation.
It's not that an all consuming sadness has struck me, it's just a fee... Read more
Just can't stand another month of this.
Not sure what is wrong.
Hate the standards of medical care.
Just want to curl up in a ball and cry.
This long cycle is just really cruel.
At times I think I hate my life when I rea... Read more
...finally. Not three little letters, but 30 years, maybe.
We finally closed on a house yesterday.
Sparkworld is not aware of the circumstances of our currently dwelling. I kind of inherited it. And it's leaky roof, bad septic system, lack of siding, and multitude of other problems.
We had iss... Read more
Life's just peachy sometimes..
This is just a little cranky blog.
I am in this whole student teaching role for my Master's. I love teaching nursing. That's the great thing.
Here's the bummer...
Trying to conceive when you're also teaching contraception, fertili... Read more
Just a little more detail..
We are on cycle # 3 of actually, not even trying not to, but hey, purposefully trying.
I am excited to realize that I am indeed ovulating on a fairly regular schedule. Started tracking temps awhile back, kinda vaguely tracking CM, and BD'in... Read more
Using the OPK sticks for 2 reasons,
1. To see when I ovulate for baby making.
2. To better predict when AF will come back after quitting birth control.
So while I know my cycles may change after this first one, I am so blessedly e... Read more
So fingers crossed that I don't gain a ton of weight being off birth control. Really hoping for the opposite since starting the birth control made me gain weight.
At any rate...
The hubs and I have always had an awesome relationship, i... Read more
No longer trying not to...
So this little revelation came yesterday.
I still utilize Planned Parenthood for Gyn visits and birth control. I have a hectic schedule as a nurse, and my boss has been a jerkface lately about posting it in any useful time frame.

Suffered a sad loss this week. My great aunt died of a massive stroke....she was at home for 2 days before anyone found her.
Managed to stick with my workouts fairly decently this week. But I should know better than to trust the scale.

A little update
Just felt a need to blog.
Down to a morning average of about 172. Yippee-dee-doo, down about 2 pounds in about 2 weeks.
Still not at that danged ticker weight. Getting there though. Even with impending holidays, past holidays, and me b... Read more
Feeling better :)
I know we all have our turning point moments.
I had one earlier this year.
Oh, and then I had one at my birthday.
Who knows why I slid backwards earlier this year. Maybe I panicked when I saw 170.0. Who knows. What's past is past.... Read more
