Test Results

Yesterday I went in to get my b/w done for this round of clomid. I'm waiting by the phone, hoping they'll call soon. They said that the results are coming in today, possibly tomorrow morning. So here's to it being today.

On a side note: The tape from the bandage to cover the inside of my elbow has left a HUGE red mark on my skin. And it itches a lot! I've never had a reaction like this before.

Still waiting...

That Kitchen Sink Thing

I've heard of that flylady thing. I've read the book, the blog, and the website. I can do the 27 things in a bag to get rid of without looking back. She talks about the kitchen sink and how one day she decides that she's going to make sure that every night the kitchen sink is cleared. And when she had a handle on that she moved onto the "kitchen sink" for each room. It seems simple enough so I'm going to try. Now seeing as how I HATE doing the dishes I decided to start with the "kitchen sink" in the living room. That's right, the coffee table. So last night, I'll took a before and after picture and then each day I'll take another picture to show you all my progress.



*Yes, that discoloration was caused by me. I was painting my nails when I tipped over the bottle of nail polish remover and then tried to mop up the spill with a napkin. As you can see, not a good idea. Oops!

For the Dogs!

Today Kevin and I ventured out to a Bark Farm so that we could help out by walking the dogs. Apparently people come out to help clean, feed and water the dogs, but they forget about exercising the dogs. Kevin and I spent two hours walking various dogs. We would have stayed longer but as Kevin was putting one dog away who didn't want to get put away, the dog managed to put the gate between him and Kevin. Kevin's solution was to pull the dog back extra hard. The dog came flying back as well as the gate. It (the gate not the dog) ended up hitting Kevin in the face, knocking the lens of his glasses free. But just the left one and yes he was wearing the new ones. We spent the next 45 minutes sifting through poo and peed wood shavings looking for the lens but it had disappeared into the ether. We went to the vision place to get it fixed, but it was closed so we had lunch instead and Kevin is headed back sometime during the week.

Lone Charger

I have a iPhone and Kevin has my old iPod. We have one lone charger that came with my iPhone. So last night when I got back from agility class, my phone was dead. I went to charge it and found Kevin's iPod plugged in. So I asked him if I could charge my phone and I got an unqualified NO. So I waited till right before we went to bed. He checked the iPod and then said "It's not finished yet," and put it back down and walked away. So needless to say I had to wait till I got to work to charge up my phone. My point? iPhone vs. iPod. Cell phone vs. MP3 player. The choice should have been obvious. Come on Kev!

Total Brain Fart!

I was being so exact this month with when I should take provera, clomid, etc. My only concern was that CD21 fell on a Saturday and so which day should I go in to do my b/w. Well it turns out that CD21 is actually Friday! Which I didn't realize till tonight. It's too late too call and reschedule my b/w and so now I have to wait till Monday, which will be CD24. I'm not sure why I kept thinking that CD21 was on Saturday. Arg!

Happy Birthday Chicken!

So today is Chicken’s Birthday. They went for a picnic in a Bok Tower (kid friendly) and then out to a bar (not kid friendly) to celebrate. And I’m not there :( This feels like the first time since 1996 that I’ve not been around for her birthday (yes I know it's not!) and I’m really sad. However, we’re planning a trip to NYC for Pita’s 30th b-day so Chicken, I’ll make it up then! Also, I did buy you a card and a gift, but of course I didn’t mail it on time (or at all actually as of right now). I intended to, but you know how that goes. Anyways, I’ll bring it with me to NYC. Hope you had fun and again, stay away from those vodka-cranberry thingys (more a note to self than to her)!
