Having a good day, started reading again, and I feel so much better when I do!

Business is going good, and my marriage is a happy one that makes me grateful we found each other.

Life would be perfect right now if I could just get knocked up, but it's just not in the cards. I am ok with that I guess.

I have stopped temping, using opk's and really paying attention to fertility days, it's too stressful. I would like to continue this blog though, because maybe I will end up getting pregnant, and when I do, and I am feeling sick and cursing the heavens, I will look back and remember what it took to get there.

I ended up cutting my own bangs. Yeah, I am impatient ;)

Like my attempt at guarding my identity? LOL.

I have been eating like a maniac (trust that I am not trying to pin this as a symptom, more as just an annoyance) and Nutella might be my stomach's worst enemy, but it's my mouth's best friend.

About to go enjoy some recorded Jersey Shore episodes. ttyl!

Bought B complex vitamins today.

Having a good day, I am going to get bangs tomorrow (if I don't attempt to cut them myself tonight... I probably will).

I think I felt myself ovulate yesterday (I get very pronounced/clear o pains) but I am usually certain, and I am not. LOL.

That's about it.

Woah, CD 10 snuck up on me for sure. Luckily I have been preoccupied with so many other things this week. Lots of reading, lots of studying (not for school, but religious paraphernalia) lots of everything.

We have an almost 4 day weekend coming up! We got a surprise day off tomorrow - never happens - because most of our kids will be out of town, and the ones that are in town are sick. Not that sick is a good thing, but I get an extra day off! We have MLK day of too. Though we promised a long-time client of ours that we would watch their son this Saturday from 3-6:30. No big.

I am feeling good today! An almost facebook-less week, until today I hadn't logged on to BBC, and I left all of my ttc groups. It's a lot of pressure being a part of them.

That's all for now.

I have been feeling down lately. I have cut out most of my Internet social networking time, to focus more on a possible spiritual journey. I feel that reading friend and family updates on who is expecting their next "surprise" baby and who is getting what is a little too much for me these days.

Let's start from the beginning. Raised Seventh Day Adventist, also baptized, I have long drifted away from church and worship. I just don't see god the way I used to. Not to get religious here - because I am currently non-religious - but this is what I've been going through.

I've also been dealing with the high possibility that both my parent's mental illness (dad's bipolar disorder, mom's bipolar disorder/seasonal depression, and once labeled schizophrenia (they have since gone back to bipolar disorder)) have been passed onto me. Lately I have been paying very close attention to my mood swings and really starting to keep an internal journal of what makes me feel the way I do. That's what got me started on the exercising and eating better lifestyle change.

I'm starting to think that my infertility may have been a blessing in disguise, I think I need to come to terms with what I may have (i have yet to be officially diagnosed with anything other than high anxiety and borderline ADD, but I see a lot of my mother's tendencies in me, and not just because she raised me and I've copied her ways, but just naturally so) and what I may one day pass on to my own children. Do I wantto knowingly bring a child into this world who will automatically be different and have a harder life?

I'm still TTC but I'm doing it with eyes wide open, and keeping an eye on myself and the way I treat those around me.

Back to the religious journey, well I've picked up some books on meditation, Buddhism, yoga, and Kabbalah. Though from what I'm reading, I don't think Kabbalah is for me.

Wish me luck :)

For now

Watching the biggest loser season 10, week 10. I really dislike Elizabeth, I think she should have been sent home LOONG ago.

Had Indian food for lunch like we always do on the weekends, it was amazing!

I have a bunch of books on order for the book review website I review for, I can't wait until next week.

We bought Turbo Tax for home and business and H has been working on that all morning.

I have been feeling really really grateful for what I do have today.

I have also been seriously considering adoption if we haven't had our own child by the time I turn 25, 2 years away.

What else... Oh! I lost 5 pounds in a week. SWEET. If I haven't gotten pregnant by the summer, I will at least have pretty hair and a smokin' bod ;)

Having a bleh day. CD3 is part of the snooze zone I mentioned yesterday...

I WILL use my wii fit today, I will I will I will I will...

Had eggs and bacon for breakfast today, just like I have had for the past 2 weeks, H makes THE BEST sunny-side up eggs, and we got some AWESOME bacon from Costco.

Currently it is nap time in the daycare, it was a WILD day today. Thinking about those eggs has me salivating. I am watching yesterday's modern family on Hulu+. Lily is so darn cute!

I don't have any deep thoughts to share today, but I am excited that my January review list has been put in for the book website I review for. Woo! Here's to new books.
