Not really back, as I have been pretty silent this year.

Not really away as I consider many of you true friends.

Not really aside. Not really in something…. I don’t know where I am stepping, however…

I restructured my google reader finally. I eliminated some infertility blogs that I have been stalking, added some Pit Bull blogs that caught my eye.

That’s because we are still busy with the house and just don’t know what our next steps with regards to the infertility stuff are yet. But for now, I don’t need to be dripping with talk of infertility. And don’t worry, if you know me from following your blog, even if I haven’t commented recently, I am still following your blog.

That’s about it. Oh, except for Mother’s Day is this weekend. So there’s that.

To all the Homies out there: we are still alive, still working in the new house and not spending a ton of time thinking about IF, except, we are thinking about fellow trenchers, Mo and Schmerson and their recently lost little boy. Ugh life sucks so bad sometimes.

Thats about it.

Getting There

We are starting to get settled in the new place, we got the living room almost set, still need a couple of pieces of furniture, but it’s looking awesome for now. The bathroom and 3-season room are all set, the kitchen, bedroom, my office and dining room are functional, but not polished. The hub’s office is a mountain of boxes. Plus we still have a room and a half worth of stuff to bring over from the other house. Yikes, maybe having the movers just bring over the big stuff was a mistake!! 🙂

The cycling stuff is on hold again, but I did get a new iPhone!! 🙂 not the same, I know!

Clearly, the Universe has swallowed me up!!

Or has it?!? Actually, it’s not been the Universe, but something else equally as vast… We bought a house!! My first house to be exact, so it has been a flurry of buying matching switches and doorknobs and trying to get the place in shape, oh and moving too.

Since our landlords wouldn’t let us out of our last months rent, we decided for money’s sake that we would move all of the small things ourselves and only have the movers do the large and extremely heavy items.

That happened Monday, so we are sleeping here now, but we still have a couple of rooms left at the old place. So… Off I go to get another load of stuff, it looks like not so much when it’s all put away… Oh well, last move for a very long time.

Post Holidays

So, we made it through… Mostly. We still haven’t been down to see the hubs family for Christmas, we have to be down there in the same town for his work this week, but they can’t/don’t want to do it then, sooooo… We will I suppose have to drive down a different time.

Anyway, a quick wrap-up on the last cycle, it was IUI #7, and lucky it was not. I was feeling really good about it, and then the first night we got to my parents and my progesterone was really late, and I saw red, I knew it was over. It got more prevalent as the Beta got closer (Wednesday, we got in on Saturday night), to the point where I emailed my nurse and said I would go to the beta, but she didn’t need to bother with calling me with the results.

But I think the major distraction of being with my family, being crazy busy with the Etsy shop, and it being the holidays in general kept me sane and distracted enough to be ok with the failed cycle.

Seeing the family was awesome!! I spent a ton of time with my mom, most of which she was helping me with the Etsy shipments, but we also went thrift storing, played cards, made Christmas cookies, set up my grandma’s Christmas decorations, and otherwise hung out.

I have been taking issue with my brother as of late, all of that is gone. The last time we were there he was pretty much a dick, but he is a totally different person now. He was polite, conversational, interesting and interested in our lives, too. His wife, still kind of a dick, but I can live with that, she’s not related to me.

And then, there is my nephew. He us a pretty cool little dude!! He knew who the hubs and I were, we let him warm up to us on his own time, but it didn’t take long. He is a trip. I know the next one probably is going to be the hellion, but neph-one is a keeper.

Also a keeper, the hubs. He was so great with my family, he was fun and went to all the silly little parties and dinners. He was awesome, and?? I think he liked it there. 🙂 I love you so much, my baby!!

Just wanted to update the blog to let my 3-4 readers 😉 know that this past IUI was also unsuccessful.  The hubs and I are visiting my parents right now, AF arrived a couple of days before my Beta, but my iPod hasn’t been able to get on the internet, so I haven’t been reading or posting (obviously).  I’m doing ok, we don’t have any plans yet for continuing or not, but just enjoying the holidays for now.

Hope everyone is having great holidays out there in bloggyland, and I will post more in the new year.  Until then… 🙂

That’s that (CD 14)

IUI was this morning, all went well, my awesome nurse had a very easy time of it, thankfully. The DS numbers were rockstar. Over 60 million total and 60% motility. CM was good as well.

Then we had lunch at my new favorite restaurant. The hubs had a butternut goat cheese pizza, it was sublime. It was fire roasted, so the crust was deliciously crispy, the “sauce” was a butternut squash purée, then there were cooked apples, bacon, and goat and mozzarella cheeses all topped off with fried sage. Unbelievably amazing! I had a sausage and meatball with spinach ricotta and mozzarella. Not quite as good, but still pretty damned good.

Anyway, the Endometrin starts tomorrow morning, along with the waiting.
