Home Sweet Home!

Got back into the USA this morning at 8am. The boarder patrolman told us "Welcome home." I thought it was a pretty cool thing to hear :D

Canada was amazing! I have some great pictures and even greater memories!!!

No other news on the baby yet.... Still have to wait until at least Thursday to see if I get my monthly gift or not.

I am going to go rest now! Will write more later!

And Today Just Gets Better!

We are leaving for Canada today! We were worried that we just hadn't saved up enough, but we are not worried now! We got part of our federal tax returns back (FINALLY!!!!).

And not to mention I got some of the COOLEST pictures of lightning last night!

Things are just coming together this week <3

Thanks for reading :)

PS- This will be probably my last post until we come back from Canada in a week and a few days!

Trying Not To Get Too Excited!!! (TMI)

Ok, SOOOOOOO........ Today was a great day at work! Went in at 11am and didn't have any potty breaks until 5:10pm. WELLLLLLL.... There, on my panties, was about a quarter sized spot of blood! I am on CD (cycle day) 15. So I am thinking that it could be implantation bleeding!!!! I'm trying not to get my hopes up because I don't want it to just be some fluke in my period... But I can't help but think "what if?"

I guess I will have to wait two weeks to see!!!! :D Crossing all my fingers!!!

Thanks for reading!

Thunderstorms Tuesday [[Three Days]]

SO I heard from the girl in Texas with the little one on the way. She has decided not to choose us as the couple for her son. I'm a little disappointed, but there is still Sue from NY! I have been talking with her a lot and its great to just be able to chat and have nice conversations.

We have some storms coming through with a few tornado watches! But it looks like everything is going to miss us; maybe just a few thunder claps and some rain.

Got 95% of everything packed for Canada!!! Can't wait! :D

Thanks for reading!!! Have a great night!

Only [[FOUR]] Days!

And I only have half days of work this week!! I can't WAIT!!!! We just finished packing all of our clothes for up there and only have a few more things to pack and we are ready to go!

Have been visiting a friend in the hospital a lot the past couple of days. She was in a car accident and is lucky to be alive (said the person who was first on the scene). She has a broken ankle, broken vertebrae in her neck, and a small spot bleeding in her brain (which has stopped, but because of that they want to monitor her closely and she is still in critical care). She has had one surgery on her ankle and will be having another one soon. I am just happy she is going to be ok!!!

Here is the article:

**WARNING!!!! The pictures are disturbing!**

Hard Day

A year ago today is when I had surgery for an ectopic pregnancy... Its hard to believe that its already been that long ago.

Not to mention I had a really bad migraine last night and normally I can sleep them off, but I woke up this morning and its still here. Plus I now have a sick to my stomach feeling along with the migraine...

Oh, and its storming out. So today is just not a good day at all.

Thursday [[8 Days]]

So I heard back from the girl in Texas (who is due in August) and she said she would rather work through an agency. Which is fine! So I told her that and that I hope she still considers us. Still don't know who the woman from New York is going to pick. But that's ok, its a big decision and I hope she takes her time to make the right choice!

On to the eight days thing! We will be heading to Canada on the 18th!!! I can't wait!!! I hope that next week goes by really fast!

Ugh... I have the worst headache right now!!!

I'm Back!

Sorry for the leave of absence! I have been super busy with work and other things!

Alex and I have been talking a lot about adoption lately. We have decided to do a private adoption on our own and not work with an agency. Through an agency, the costs would be $15k-$30k and we just can't afford that! Doing a private adoption on our own is about $3k-$7,500 which is a LOT more do-able! The most exciting part is that think I have found two possible candidates! One who is due in August (in Texas), and one who is due in November (in New York). Neither girls have picked a family yet that they believe is best, but I am keeping my fingers crossed!

If both of these fall through, we are probably going to work with CSSW to do a "foster to adopt" program. If we foster first, them they become available for adoption, the adoption is free. But I am so afraid of becoming attached to the children that we would be fostering, it would break my heart to see them go back! That's why we want to go straight to adoption...

We will see I guess. Everything normally has its own way of working things out.

Thanks for reading and have a great day :)

Blue Angels!!!!

I am SO stoked that I will be going to watch them today!!! I hope the rain holds out!!!

But I have to go and get ready, so I will post another update tonight!

Thursday, June 3, 2010

Today's Update (since I promised one)

So I after I posted last, is was about a hour before I let the kids get up so we could go out and watch the Blue Angels. By the time we got through bathroom, snack, and sunscreen and got outside, no more flying!!! AH! They were all upset. But another hour later, the Angels were back and flying right over the center!!! It was so much fun and the children loved it! A few were scared by the loudness, but we showed them how to cover their ears and that the planes weren't going to hurt them and they were fine!

Oh, and guess what I got about that time?! My damn monthly gift!!! UGH!!! I am so frustrated and depressed!!!!!! I kept myself from getting my hopes up about being pregnant until yesterday and as soon as I start thinking that its a possibility, I get AF! And this whole two week late shit is pissing me off!!! If I am going to get it, just freaking come on time so I don't go insane!!!!

But I went to the bridal shower and had some fun. I feel bad that I didn't stay longer, but I just didn't feel the greatest and didn't want to be a drag on the party...


Ok, so my first time EVER posting a blog at work. Feels really weird to be on the computer here... Anywhoo!

The Blue Angels are practicing and its nap time right now. Well, the kids are too excited to sleep!!! But we have promised them that if they lay nice for AT LEAST 30 minutes, then we are going to get up and go watch them fly. I think I am almost as excited as they are!!! Hahahaha. Sad, but oh so true! I just wish I would have brought my camera so I could take some pictures while we are out there. I would wait until tomorrow, but its supposed to rain, so I am afraid that I wont be able to get pictures...

Tonight I am supposed to go to a bridal shower. I am not feeling the greatest... I have a bad headache and my stomach is upset... Not to mention, its at my mother-in-law's house and she asked if I could come early to help her with a few things. Ugh... I will feel bad if I don't go, but I will be suffering through it...

Well, I will write an update later tonight.

Thanks for reading!

P.S. Still no aunt flow...

Super Excited!

I can't wait until the weekend! The Blue Angels are in town for the air show and they flew over today while we were outside with the kiddos. And of course their excitement transfered over to us teachers, which wound them up even more!

I even helped cook tonight! Granted, it was only hamburger helper, but hey I still helped! Tehehehe :D At least I didn't burn anything!!!

On another note, still no flow. It sucks! I hate being in limbo. I can't wait until next week! I am going in for a blood test so I know for sure!!!

Thanks for reading :)

Refreshed and Renewed!

After a nice three day weekend, I am ready to get back to work! Had a great day yesterday!!!!! We went over to the family BBQ and stayed there for a few hours. Then we went tubing down the river and that took about a hour and a half. After that we went horseback riding! We were there until 10PM!!! It was a lot of fun riding with Alex, since he has never been on a horse before! He even got to watch me fall off! Bahaha!!!! The saddle wants quite tight enough, and over the side I went! Oh well, it was funny :)

This picture is right after my fall, so my shirt and helmet are crooked! Hahaha!!!
