Monthly Archives: August 2006

This has been a fairly good week. It has just flown by. I was busier than usual at work which was nice. The business made the days go by faster. Speaking of work, Christopher is placing himself in the job market again. He has a new general manager that he does not get along with at all, and the company he works for treats their employees like crap. My brother, Greg, desperately wants us to move to Little Rock near him and his family. I would love to live closer to my brother, but I would hate to leave my church. That would be hard.

Well, I have been taking Fertility Blend for almost two weeks now. It is too early to see any kind of improvement. I am on cycle day 15 with no sign of ovulating which really isn’t a good sign, but we shall see. My temperature went a little crazy this week, but I think it was because I did not sleep at all on Tuesday night. And my body is probably a little more out-of-wack than usual because I have been eating an insane amount of candy lately. I really have to stop. I have to break my sugar addiction. I admit I have a problem; now I need to deal with it.

Tonight, Christopher and I went to a poker party at a friend’s house. No real money was used which was great because both C and I got hammered. I mean we lost pretty badly. We didn’t get drunk. There was lots of pizza, chips, chocolate, and candy corn, and everyone was happy! After the loooong poker session, Christopher, Farris, and I played a few games of ping-pong. It had been quite a while since I last played ping-pong, but I didn’t perform as horribly as I thought I would. Yay me! Of course, I never won a game, but it was fun anyway.

Today is my SIL, Melody’s, birthday. Melody is great. I don’t know how she puts up with my brother, but she does a great job of it. She also does a great job raising her two beautiful children. I love my nephew and niece more than I can say. They are precious.

I don’t know if I’ll get around to posting this weekend or not. I probably will find a time. I am greatly looking forward to sleeping in and spending lots of time with my hubby! 🙂

Today has been a really good day. Great sermon by Pastor Lonn Oswalt on headship. I loved it. I also finally took my membership vows. I am part of the original group that started Immanuel Presbyterian, but I have not been considered a member because up until a year ago, I was still under my father’s headship and a member of New Hope Baptist Church in Choudrant, Louisiana. But I am now officially a member of Immanuel. Hooray!

Every couple of weeks we like to have people over after church for lunch. This week we had three friends over, and I forgot to remove my personal item of clothing from plain view on the handle of the door to the laundry room which is off of the kitchen which is open to plain view from the dining room. It was not until the two guys left that my husband noticed it. How embarrassed was I? Yeah. And what makes this whole situation worse is that THAT WAS NOT THE FIRST TIME I have done that! The gentlemen of our church are pretty well acquainted with my underthings by now. I make such a big deal about keeping the house clean and keeping everything in its assigned spot, but when we have people over, I can’t seem to remember that the proper spot for my underthings is upstairs in my dresser where no one can see them, not hanging on my laundry room door! Geeze. Will I never learn?

Well, I’m off to see a movie with my hubby. Happy Sabbath, all!

I have the best husband in the world. I know that he loves me more than anything and that he will love, protect, and cherish me for as long as God allows. I can’t thank God enough for him. 🙂

I dropped my sister off in Louisiana yesterday afternoon, and then came home and cleaned the upstairs. Christopher and I were able to spend the evening and today together. He just left for work a few minutes ago. While he is gone, I plan to do two loads of laundry and then clean the downstairs. It’s nice being able to clean every week instead of maybe once a month, which is what I did while I was in school and then when I had two jobs.

I’d better get to cleaning.

I am having a great week with my sister here. We have seen two movies, and we are going to see another tonight with Christopher, Aubrey, and Eric. I am looking forward to being with friends, but I don’t want to see “Snakes on a Plane.” Ugh. Oh well.

My dear friend Sarah Richey called me last night to tell me that she is pregnant. Yay! Congratulations Sarah and Jarrod! They are going to be such great parents. I can’t wait to see their little Richey.

I have to admit that I cried when Sarah told me she was preggo. I always do that. I’m just so happy that my friend is gonna be a mom. I know how much she wants this. But I also cried out of pity for me, I think. I’m not really sure what I was feeling. I, too, desperately want to have a baby. I feel like I was just made to be a wife and a mom, and I can’t wait for that to happen. I have to wait, though, because God is not ready for Christopher and me to be parents. I must ask for patience. I told Sarah that it is only fair that she got pregnant first because she was married first. Maybe in another month or two I will be pregnant. I began using my ovulation sticks today. 🙂 Hopefully they will help us out.

Well, I’m off! Christina and I are going to visit a friend and her week old little boy. 🙂 I just love babies.

I had a lovely anniversary weekend with my husband. The only thing that marred a perfect weekend was the Red Sox losing an entire five game series to the YANKEES. Ugh. We were both very unhappy after the game on Sunday. The Red Sox were doing so well until the eighth inning!

I have the best husband in the world. I am so blessed to have him. God knew exactly what He was doing when He set up the events that led me to Christopher. My Dad and Sister were able to trace the process all the way back to my brother, Greg, going to high school at a boarding school away from home and meeting this guy, Steven, who convinced Greg to work at a camp in New York with him. Then Greg came home and convinced me to work there the next summer. I met Christopher at that camp. 🙂

You know, everyone told us that the first year would be the hardest. If that is true, then we must have a pretty awesome life in store for us because our first year was a breeze! We’ve loved every bit of it. We’ve never had a major fight (some disagreements, yes, but no real fights), and we just can’t seem to get enough of each other! I am so happy with this guy. I am so blessed. 🙂

No need to test today. I’m not pregnant. And I’m okay. I thought that I would cry or something, but by Thursday when I found out, I was just ready to move on with my life. I did go ahead and buy some ovulation predictor tests and some Fertility Blend pills which should arrive by Thursday. 🙂 I look forward to trying everything out. Maybe September will be our month!

The good thing about not being preggo now is that I can drink on my anniversary! Yay! Our actual anniversary day is tomorrow, but we begin the celebration tonight. Christopher got the whole day off so we are enjoying a nice lazy morning. He woke me up at 11:30 and we’ve just been hanging out and wasting time. 🙂 I love it.

Christina is supposed to come up on Monday and spend the week with us. I have no idea what we will do, but it will be fun having my sister with us for a while. 🙂

Heres to a great weekend! See you next week!

I am so exhausted. I have felt exhausted for the past two or three days. Actually, the mornings haven’t been any worse than usual for me, but after lunch I am really dragging. I had so much work to do yesterday and today, but I was so exhausted, I didn’t care about it. Yesterday I went home and took a nap, but today I decided that it is finally time to actively try to lose some weight. I exercised! But now I wish I could take a nap, but it’s almost time for me to get dinner started. I feel like I haven’t slept in days.

If I can just get through tomorrow (that shouldn’t be too difficult), then I will be fine. I have Friday through Monday off of work this week, and Christopher and I are going out of town to celebrate our anniversary on Saturday. 🙂 I look forward to that. I also look forward to sleeping in on Friday and Saturday. MMMM. Happy sleeping!

Oh wow. Am I ever exhausted. This has been a busy day, but that’s a good thing. I like busy days because they seem to go by so much faster. And I feel like I’m actually earning my money. I had lunch with Nicole today. That was nice. She and Lee have been really good friends for me and Christopher. God has really blessed us with several friend married couples: Sarah and Jarrod, Lee and Nicole, and Eric and Aubry. They’re all great. 🙂 It would be really fun, I think, to get all four couples together for something. Maybe one day.

I’m about to leave work, so I’m going to wrap this up. I may find more to write about tonight.

Today was a busy day at work. We had a special business lunch with a speaker at a fancy tennis club. The meal was fantastic. 🙂 MMMMM. And it was free for me since I was there to work. And I got paid to eat too! Yay! Gotta love that. 🙂

I went to see a friend’s baby tonight. He’s beautiful. As I held little Nathan, I looked at his perfect tiny face and thought about how amazing the creation of a baby is. A tiny little egg and sperm unite and multiply into cells which multiply into more cells that eventually form a baby. By the time that little baby has been growing in the womb for eight weeks, you can hear the heart beat! But I think the heart actually begins beating at 20 something DAYS! Unbelievable. This little being has a beating heart and brain waves before it has been in the womb an entire month and yet women will abort these little beings saying they are nothing more that a blob of cells. Well, I can’t believe how sick some people are, but this blog is not intended to be an abortion bash. God is so good, and He does an amazing thing when He forms a baby inside his mother’s womb. How can anyone doubt God’s existence?

This morning my temperature was still at 98 degrees. I wonder what my body is doing? I can’t wait to test on Saturday. I hope I get a positive although I can’t imagine what that would be like. I’ve gotten so many negatives in the past, it’s hard to believe that I’ll look at the pregnancy test and see the word “pregnant” there all by itself without the “not” in front of it. Well, four more days to go! We’ll see what tomorrow holds.

Well, goodnight all! 🙂 Sleep well.
