This is my first official week of vacation (full week anyway) and I have been busier now that when at work! I have had my neice every day aside from today, and have thoroughly enjoyed every minute with her. Her parents both work, and her babysitter is on vacation this week so I offered to keep her. She is so happy and precious and brings such joy to everyone around her. After each of my m/c and surgeries, I always ask my mom to please pick up GiGi on her way so I could have those chubby sweet arms around my neck to console me.
Last week the town's garden club knocked on our door and asked if we would accept the yard of the month award. Are you kidding me!!!??? Gladly! I love that we have an older home we have been fixing up and not in the flashiest neighborhood in town. There are half a million dollar homes all over this town with landscape to boot, but the lady said she had been driving around town all day and loves that our house always has something in bloom and there was none that looked better this month. We are insanely proud. Yes, my DH has a lawn business but the flowers beds are all me :)We also got the award last August and so now we are batting 2 for 10 months! LOL!! We are remodeling bit by bit, and the house looks so great! I will post a finished pic as the door was just hung today and the sign is in the yard.
This week while G napped, I washed walls, doors, blinds, and baseboards. I cleaned out closets, got stuff together to give the the SHL Missions, have gotten up early every morning to work out (I have lost 10 lbs in 3 months :) We have played tea party every afternoon then walk to see what flowers have bloomed. G loves to water the plants. She is not quite 2 but already very well potty trained which posed a problem yesterday.
SEW and G and I went to pick blueberries at a local blueberry farm and it was insanely hot. It was only 10 in the morning, but I had sweat dripping in places I have never had drip before. I was worried about SEW, but she is one trooper of a pregnant gal. She didn't stop and she and G ate more than they picked I think! G had to go to the bathroom and all they had to use were port a johns. I did not want her to use that germ infested hole, so I put on her little swimmers and she kept walking around saying, "DD I go poo poo on potty", which means she needs to pee. I know the poor thing was confused and needed to sit on the toilet, but none where available. Her face was beet red and I didn't bring a sippy cup for her. We had to leave, and I felt bad b/c Sew only had a half a bucket picked! She was red as a beet and I was worried about her and baby Sew too. But we left, soaking wet, and went to my mom's to swim for the afternoon. Sew gave her some little colored rubber ducks, and she was trying to find them at our tea party later. I only found one - I think the others are in the pool still!
I asked Sew's opinion - honest opinion about what I should do this month. The docs gave us the go ahead to ttc, but I am nervous obviously. They basically described my losses as unexplained and I am just to blindly dive in again. She suggested seeing her Napro doc and getting total results of P tests and estrogen as well. Of course I am hard headed and ready, so we have been ttc this week. She said that telling me not to try is like telling rice not to be white! I am hoping like mad the herbal tea, acupuncture, yoga, and general relaxing will be our ticket this time. I used ovulation sticks and got an almost same color, but not quite reading on CD 12 then have gotten lighter from there. I have been taking my temp in the am too, and is has been rising this whole week. So....here we go, maybe.
Tomorrow, Blake and I are heading the Little Rock to see my best friendm her husband, and her son - our Godson! I can't wait. Then we are getting up early to head to a house on the White River with my entire family. 4 siblings, their spouses, mom and dad, and 6 neices and nephews. We were supposed to go the the beach, but with the oil spill, well, we had to cancel. This place is going to be awesome though! Trout fishing, laying on the dock reading and relaxing, playing with the kids, watching movies (the house has a 12 person mini theater!) and just being with family. I can't wait. Blake has to leave early :( due to work so half the week I will be without him which I hate, but the medical bills are rolling in including his $1000 bill for the ER when he was stung last week and swelled up like a puffer fish. I will post pics of the fam vacay next week, but until then, adios y hasta luego!!
