It's unusual…

..what started out as an IVF journey and ended up being about life

Happy Belated Birthday to Me! October 10, 2008

It wasn’t a bad birthday at all. The age factor kind of sucks, but other than that it was a good day.

My darling hubby got me tickets to see Metallica in January – very exciting stuff.

And we went to Cheeburger Cheeburger for dinner – I live on the edge, don’t I? But with the economy and all, I figure low key is better. Besides, they have the most awesomest shakes ever!! Snickers is my poison of choice.

I haven’t lost any weight, nor have I gained any…so stable is where we are at. I’m just dealing with it for now. If I can get up the gumption to do more weight loss stuff then great, if not – I refuse to stress about it with everything else going on.

I did give myself the birthday present of piercing the top of my ear. I’ve been wanting to do it forever (well, ever since it closed up in a day), so I decided to get it done and over with. Now, of course, I want to do the inside of my ear…..maybe for Christmas!!! 😉

Still on BCP, but I think I finally stopped spotting, so I might actually be able to have real, live sex before I start stimming.

Tomorrow and Saturday are set aside for Pumpkin Carving!! Yeah, I’m a loser – gotta love it.


Geez – I’m old! October 8, 2008

Yowzah is all I can say….43 😛

Never thought I’d get to this old….but here I am.

And the workout log is done for now…haven’t worked out in two whole days. Although I did go for a two mile hike on Sunday with the hound and spent Monday afternoon doing a ton of yardwork…but that’s not really working out.

Of course, there’s no news on the IVF front since I’m still taking BCP’s – oh, and spotting/staining constantly. How much do I hate Birth Control Pills…that is the real question. I feel like I’ve had some version of a period for months now, even though it’s only been around 8 days.

No weight loss to report either and I’m sure there won’t be any today – what with the cakes, cookies etc. that will be at work today!!

Anyway – Happy Birthday to me and there’s only one thing I really want for my birthday this year…all I can do is pray I get it.
