Moving on....

To our next month of TTC. This time I am going to take a more active approach. I am going to be temping this month to see if I am even ovulating. The fact that AF was 4 days late had my hopes up along with a very misleading pregnancy test.
I have never temped before. I am a little nervous about remembering to temp every morning before I get out of bed but since knowing this information is important I need to make it my number 1 priority. Maybe I'm a little scared too. 
What if I am not ovulating? Then what? I've never been in this position before. Hayley was conceived with out any trying at all. So that is my question for my few readers...What happens if I am not ovulating? What do I do? What is the next step??

Goodbye Summer!! =(

So for the last few days it has been cold here...I mean really cold. Wear pants and long sleeve cold. It makes me sad. I'm not ready for summer to be over. I already miss my shorts and tank tops. So...
Goodbye summer....Hello fall!!!

Hayley's Birthday Celebration

For Hayley's birthday we took her and 2 of her friends to a Bounce place near us. This is Hayley going down one of the first slides they conquered. Clearly, she is LOVING it!!!
 Boxing anyone!? I didn't think to ask any of the girls if those gloves were heavy or not, being that large and all....I'll ask Hayley in the morning!
 The Birthday girl having lots of fun!! She looks sooo much like me when I was her age! I should dig up a photo of me at 9 and post comparisons....Hmmm....lol
 Isn't this cake adorable? I thought so...
Best Friends

I didn't want to overwhelm anyone with TONS of pictures so I just chose a few out of over 70 to sum up what a great night we had. And that Spongebob hat? Handmade just for Hayley by someone my mom works with. The perfect gift for Hayley. I should have uploaded the picture of Hayley opening the hat it shows the look on her face perfect!!! Maybe another day!!! 
Until next time,

Happy 9th Birthday Hayley!!!!

Nine years ago today  Hayley was born at 9:29 a.m. by emergency c-section. She was 12 days late. I had been in labor for 12 hours when they made the call to do the c-section. Thankfully they did because her cord was wrapped around her neck...twice if I am not mistaken. I have spent 1/2 an hour searching for my newborn pictures of her but they are currently missing. =( I wanted to upload her newborn picture for ya'll to see.
3 yrs old (the youngest picture i could find)

Almost 9 yrs old

Gosh my baby has grown so much! I know, I know, they are suppose to do that! But darn it, I don't want her to! I'll be back later with pictures of her special day!!!!

1st day of School....

Today Hayley started 4th grade!

As you can tell she really doesn't look too excited...

Until of course Grandma got in the picture with her!!!

Crossing the street to get on the bus..

See her little wave?? 

So yes, my princess is officially a 4th grader now!!! She came home today and told us 4th grade is way better. And that in fourth grade they are taking a charter bus with a TV and a BATHROOM on a field trip. I just chuckled and let her ramble on. I don't want to want to disappoint her and tell her there is more to 4th grade than just fun and field trips....She will find that out soon enough!

Sweet Potatoes Anyone?

Published with Blogger-droid v1.7.4

So quiet......

Hayley left for her dad's today...wait since it's 3:30 in the morning I guess technically she left yesterday. For 10 whole days..Its so quiet with out her radio playing while she sleeps. I guess I really do enjoy hearing the music.
I'm going to miss her, but at the same time this is my last chance to get any major things done before school starts. Gosh I can't believe that. She comes home September 5th and goes back to school September 6th.  I can't believe my darling is going in to 4th grade!!! I wish I had a new picture of her to upload but I don't think I've taken many pics lately....I will have to check my cellphone and see what I can find...LOL
Okay okay so I looked but about all I found was some older pics of my garden (that part of lived and part of didn't live as well), the cats(being either stupid or really cute) and just random junk or people. Nothing really worth uploading tonite. Maybe later.
Anyways, it IS almost 4 a.m. and I have to be up at 9 so i better get to bed!

P.S. My period finally started on its own a few days ago, maybe my cycle is just a little bit longer than I thought...I think I better go back and do some counting to see if this has been normal all along...hmmm

One day....

One day I might get this daily blogging thing down but for now I think I'll aim for even just once or twice a week. LOL I meant to come back that same day after my last post but was too busy upset to really sit down and blog. All though now that I think about it maybe it would have made me feel a little better. Oh well.
However, the question still stands. Why does getting pregnant have to be so difficult? I should have known it wouldn't be easy and so far I am not wrong. Not only am I not pregnant but I am not even getting my period anymore. Go figure. Just my body's way of saying "screw you!"
I did talk to the dr at my yearly and she did mention that it can take 6 to 12 months to get pregnant after going off the pill so we will just wait and see. After 12 months she said then we start testing.I am afraid to even think about how much that is going to cost since I am sure our insurance isn't going to cover any of it. *sigh* 
Anyways, thats whats going on lately in our lives..Well of course there is other things too but you know what I mean....

Back Again :)

Maybe its cuz i dont have to be at my computer. This is easier. Took Hayley to the dr. for her asthma follow-up today. They said she is doing great. Turns out the bite on her face is a black fly bite. Weird. But he said to put hydrocortizone on it 2-3 times a day and it should clear up. Apparently she got it last week at her first softball game of the season.
Speaking of softball we were going to take her to the batting cages tonite but it decided to rain a little bit so we were bummed! Tonite was the only free nite I had so it will have to wait til next week. :(
In 2 days Hayley will be running her first 5k!! I am so proud of her!
Until later,

Gonna give this another shot.....

I know its been forever but I wanted all the drama to completely calm down and I wanted a chance to spend time with my family.
Thankfully, the drama is gone and the family is well. Busy right now preparing for our HUGE yard sale this weekend. Can't wait to get this over with!!!
Hayley is doing well but that is a post I need my computer for. So until then....

Not gonna miss a day...

I hope. LOL  Since my last post was at like 2 in the morning and this one is at 3 in the morning its considered 2 posts in a row. I am on a roll! Except I really don't have much to blog about!
I spent most of the day in bed. I think I might be getting sick. I sure hope not!  I ache all over and I am just so darn tired! Part of it I am sure is because I'm not working out like I'm suppose to (gotta get back on track!), and some might be my unusually low blood pressure. But other than that I just feel icky! So here is to feeling better!
And I will be back again soon!

Welcome to 2011

And where did 2010 go?? It seems like just yesterday I was writing this post right here. So because I failed at those I guess I better work harder to not fail this year. All though, I have to admit,  The number 1 resolution on that list I did manage to finally do! January 4th marked my 3 month quit date! So onto my 2011 resolutions.

  • Get healthier
    • This I can do! I have been slowly working on this and I know it's all ONE day at a time!
    • It's just a matter of healthy eating and doing my workouts like I am suppose to.
  • Scrapbook more
  • Spend more time doing fun things with Hayley
  • Start attending church with Hayley when she is home and even when she is not.
  • Read my entire Bible
    • I am actually following a plan that will allow me to read the whole Bible in 90 days. It is absolutely fasinating and I am ashamed to admit I have never read the whole Bible. 
  •  Be a nicer person to everyone, even those that don't deserve it!
  • Live more! Save more!
I think thats about it. OH and BLOG more! Since I haven't posted since August I think I might really have a problem here!! LOL
