One Year Ago… & Random Tuesday Thoughts

One year ago today, Monkey took his first steps.  And I caught the whole thing on camera.  Yes it was only technically 2 steps (or perhaps 1 1/2) but when your kid is just 10 months old, that is BIG SHIZZLE!

It AMAZES me how much time has changed.  Now he runs all over the place like he’s late for a hot date.  As much as I wish he would slow down and walk, he just loves to run.  And fall.  Run and fall.  In that order.

I can’t believe that one year ago today I had a 10 month old and now I have a 22 month old.  WOW.  Those are worlds apart!

We start the injections this month.  This cycle.  I am nervous.  Not sure why.  Well, I am pretty sure I will get pregnant (knock on wood) but I am scared if I will stay pregnant.  I hope I hope I hope.

I want this to work so baaaaaaad!

I am trying to get my Christmas cards done.  But I have 150 cards to prep and I am sure as hell not writing all them addresses by myself!  No sir-ee bob!  And guess who is probably not going to write them all his-self either?  LOL Yup, the Hubby.

Soooo… I am trying to get all of them printed on my fancy home printer.  *sigh*

I have had this fancy Canon photo printer for about a year and other than printing 12348972903857 recipes and other random bits of fun, I have yet to print a photo or envelope or anything else of substance.  So, if anyone knows how the hell to use it… please come over and clue the clueless in.  Nnnkay??

There is not enough time in the day to get all of the shit done that I need to get accomplished.  I am getting seriously irritated about it.  I need to give up something.  But what?

Maybe I am just a slacker.

My Starbucks addiction is getting out of hand.  Even Hubby is starting to make subtle hints.  *humph*

I was going to have a bunch of photos prepared for you today but it didn’t happen.  Sorry 😦

Tomorrow I plan to share pictures (plan being the oprative word) of Monkey’s new haircut!  Cut by the new salon in town “Mama does hair”.  They just opened.  And it’s super close!  All I have to do is drive through the master bedroom into the master bath and I am there.  Awesome deal.

ANNNND, he didn’t scream like a loon the whole time I was cutting his hair.  So.  Haircut WIN!  I did awesome too.  Sursly.

What’s new in your world?

*Love* vol 2

The lovely DC Princess does a weekly blog called I LOVE Fridays.  I was inspired by reading her posts each week to write one similar last week called *LOVE*.

I so enjoyed doing the *LOVE* post that I think I might make it a regular event.  Not sure yet but we shall see.  It won’t be on a specific day because, well I have too many days devoted.  And I just can’t commit to that kind of pressure.  HAHA

I won’t however be restricting myself to only “Things” today like I did last time.  Just whatever comes to mind.  Yay!  (say Yay, you know you want to) 🙂

Here goes….

I *LOVE* that my ass is all healed!! YAY!!!  (what a freakin’ nightmare that shit was!) SHEEZ!

I *LOVE* that I got soooo many comments, emails, phone calls and messages from people telling me how much I was missed last week!  I was shocked and honored.  And now I have a big head.  Yay!!

I *LOVE* my Jacuzzi bathtub.  Yay!

I *LOVE* that we got all of the shopping done for Thanksgiving today!  No more crazy crowds.  Yay!

I *LOVE* that I got awards from AMAZING bloggers this week.  Thank you Carma Sez!  Thank you Stuperhero Extraordinaire!  And a very belated thank you to MommyBrain and Rudy Family Rukus!   All are great, please check them out.  Yay!

I *LOVE* that someone rushed out of Wal-Mart with such hunger to getiton that they just whipped ripped their “Ecstasy” Trojans out of the box and left the box in the parking lot.  Yay!

I *LOVE* that I stopped to take a picture of the empty Trojan Box thinking ahead that I just had to share my jealousy excitement with all you poor, unsuspecting readers.  *grin* Yay!

I *LOVE* Entourage!! I just started watching it and have made it through to the middle of season 4.  I can’t believe I ever missed this show!!  It is sooooo good!  Yay!!

I *LOVE* that the weather is finally getting cooler.  Wearing long pants is much more socially acceptable when you go 4 weeks without shaving. Haha  Yay!!

I *LOVE* that December is so close now I can taste it!  Because it means TWO things that I *LOVE* are coming.  #1 The holidays!  (and my house gets uber awesome decos for the holidays) And #2 our next round of injections!!  Yay!

I *LOVE* these Suds.  If anyone knows how I can get in touch with them so that they can come to my shower and entertain cheer me on I would surely appreciate it!  Yay!

I *LOVE* Saying YAY!!!!!  🙂

Crazy Leg, Fugly Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

If you want to play along with Random Tuesday Thoughts, go here to get the widget and add your name to Mr. Linky.

This is one of the best blogs I have read in FOREVER.  GOOO read it and don’t forget to come back.  It’s a short read and I promise you will laugh so hard, you may pee yourself.  Just warning you.  🙂

Oscarelli: Gang Signs

Have you ever been sitting in traffic and had your foot on the brake so long that suddenly you are afraid you aren’t pushing hard enough?  And that at any minute your foot might fall asleep and you will crash into the car in front of you?  And all the sudden your leg starts to shake and you start to think “Oh my god I am going to cream the car in front of me and we aren’t even moving!” No?  Oh, ok, maybe it’s just me.

You know how some days you look in the mirror and you think “eh Christ, today I look like shit! Gah!” and then the rest of the day you feel like it’s totally your ‘Ugly’ Day?  Yeah, well I have been doing that every day for the last like 2 years.  I am thinking of removing the mirrors from my house.

That would be most rough on Monkey though, because that boy LOVES to look at himself.  He even flirts with himself.  It’s so hilarious.  And it’s not just mirrors, it’s ANY reflection.  He sees himself in the TV and he will run by staring at himself laughing.  And run back again.  Over and over.  He is nuts.

I had a dream Friday night that I was having an ultrasound performed and I said to the tech, “Hey! There are two babies!” and she said “oh well look at that! There sure is! Looks like twins!”

And that’s all I can remember.  That and that when I was looking at the ultrasound monitor, the babies looked like a drawing and not like a sonograph picture.  Very weird.

But I can’t get it out of my head.  Are twins in our future?   I am trying not to get my hopes up.  But we are going to try again, with our doctors go ahead, on my next cycle.  Which should be right about Christmas day if I am calculating right.  Actually, I would start injections Christmas eve.  IF of course my body does what it is supposed to do.  With the help of all the drugs they are giving me of course. *grin*

I don’t want to get my hopes up but my gut says that I will get pregnant.  That of course leads into the next question… will I stay pregnant this time.  PCOS is such a beast.  GRRR *Pout*.

Hubby was gone all weekend on a fishing trip and I took the opportunity to start redoing our house.  Since it appears that we are going to be here for a while and not heading home to Colorado like I had hoped, I have decided to make some changes around here.  For starters, I want to redo our living room.  Our furniture is old and it is starting to feel like you are sitting on marble, not on a soft squishy couch.  I am going to miss it but… not that much.  🙂

I am also going to start redecorating other parts of the house.  Like Monkey’s room and the master bedroom.  I can’t paint because we rent, but I am going to get some paint out and touch up some of the nicks and marks that we have put on the walls.  And by *we* I mean *the boys*!

This weekend I started reorganizing all over the house.  I am Queen of the Label Maker.  All Hail Label Maker.  Amen.

So I labeled the kitchen cupboards and some of my office stuff so far.

I also decided that I had enough of those damn ants.  So, I actually sprayed some bug spray. *gasp*  I know, I know.  They may move elsewhere, but I am going to take my chances!!  Those little nasty shits have spent enough time in my house!  I am fed UP!  And so far it seems to have worked.

I am seriously considering calling the Bug Killer Owner Guy and chewing him out.  I paid him $70 and all I got were bugs!  I went to Walmart and spent $3.95 and my ant problem is solved.  Ponder that!

For some reason I am addicted to 80’s music the last week or so.  I can’t get enough.  And as luck would have it, we have an 80’s radio station here.  Awesome!  And even MORE lucky is the fact that Monkey LOVES it!!  He dances all over the room.  It’s so cute!!  I am trying to get a video of him.

It’s weird though, because for a Photographers kid, he is oddly camera shy.  *shrug*

Well, I am ALLLLLL about the lame blogs lately, aren’t I?

Update Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

Sorry I have fallen off the grid.  The sinus infection bug attached our house!  UGH!  And so we have been doing a lot of sleeping and resting and just fun ole yucky stuff.  Snotty noses, sneezing, whining, chills, fever, aches, chocolate eating… wait, what?  Oh.  That was just me.  🙂  We are on the mend.  Sort of.  Getting there.

OH OH OH OH!!!!!!!!!!!!   Some fantabulous news to report!  Monday we had another ultrasound and blood work and it appears that my follicles have finally done their thing!  The injections did their job!  We got the green light and will have the IUI in the morning!  Say a prayer that we get pregnant!  I think we will!!

And I also have some bad news to report.  Dan woke up from his Coma last week.  And seemed to be semi-responsive.  But then fell back into a coma on Saturday and has been unresponsive since.  The doctors say this isn’t good.  He is breathing on his own.  However, it appears at this point that he will have to be institutionalized.  It makes me sick to think that he is going through this pain.  I feel almost guilty being happy about the injections being a success.  However, I know Dan and I know he would want us to be happy.  He watched from front row seats for several years of our fertility slumps.  I am trying to keep all of my prayers and happy thoughts up.

It is so weird think how life can change in an instant.  It is scary really.

That is all I have for this tiny post.  I am going to go nap while the baby naps.  Trying to kick this sinus infection and all be darned if I don’t want to sleep 24/7.

Please leave a comment to let me know you stopped by. Thank you!

Hugs!!

My Foggy Brain Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

Make sure you check out Keely to get your RTT button.

We went on a super quick trip to Houston this weekend to visit family.  It was rushed but fun.  Wish I could do it more often.  It was nice to relax and drink beer and just talk.  I missed it.

I know I am SUPER behind on everyone’s blogs, be patient, I will catch up as soon as I can.  J

Yesterday I got my first injection of Follistim.  I made chuck stab the needle into my thigh because I freaked out and couldn’t do it.  But then I didn’t even feel it so I thought he chickened out.  I opened my eyes and there it was sticking out of my leg.  So that was a relief.  But I am nervous and so excited.  And wildly irritated at the side effects so far.  I feel loopy, tired, irritable, lacking motivation to get anything done around here and worst of all, I feel like my brain is only half working.  It’s an adjustment, but I am keeping my eye on the prize!  Even if I do want to smack every single member of my medical team.  GRRR!  Seriously, losing patience with that crap.

It’s been raining for days.  I am sooo loving the drop in temperature, but it’s starting to feel a little drab.  Ready for some sunshine already.

Tomorrow we get new carpet.  Yay!!  Our carpet looks like hell.  Because of the rain, it should be interesting trying to corral two nutty dogs and one toddler into the kitchen for as many hours as it takes them to replace the carpet.  Pray for me.  Lol

I had the “sea of babies” dream again last night.  I keep having the same dream where I am sitting on the floor of a huge room.  Spread out in front of me is a sea of pink and blue blanket swaddled babies.  They are all crying and I know they are all mine.  And I am crying because they are crying and I am (clearly) overwhelmed.  There must be millions of them.  Babies for as far as the eye can see.  If I had any artistic ability, I would paint a picture of the crazy scene.  I keep having the same dream. *shrug*

Bachelorette was HEEELARIOUS last night!!  Reid coming back and making Jillian all… “uhh uhhh uhhh” just made me laugh.  I don’t like her so I guess that made it easy for me to laugh at her issue.  I feel like your heart should know if you are sure.  But that is just me.  Who knows.  I loved how Chris Harrison handled her.  He was like “HELLLLLO Captain Obvious!!”.  It was great.

I need to take a nap or I am going to fall over.  So I might as well take the chance while Monkey naps.  I can’t believe how weird this medicine is making me feel.

Sorry about my terrible blog today, I seriously can’t put together a coherent sentence in my brain right now.  *sigh*

What is random about your Tuesday?

Please don’t forget to comment!!  Love love love Comments!! 😀

about moi…

Hi, my name is Cass. I am married to an amazing man who loves me unconditionally. I’m a stay at home mom to a rockin’ 2 year old boy who I call Monkey. I have an 12 year old step-daughter who lives in another state. We miss her daily. We also have two fur babies, Daisy and Jazz, who keep us on our toes. They are awesome!

I am a complete goofball, a photographer and a constant out loud thinker. I am a grammar challenged, vulgar, cursing, sex obsessed Big Mama fumbling through life. Among other things, I battle PCOS causing infertility, Bi Polar, Anxiety and OCD.

Currently I am riding the fertility roller coaster in an attempt to make Monkey #2. This blog is about a little of everything. I hope you enjoy. Read at your own risk!
