Now the Waiting Begins

We actually had "relations" last night, can you believe it? And don't you just love how we IF girls spew the most private of details out where everyone can read about it? So now we wait. And since I ovulated on CD10 I have a bit longer than 2 weeks. I'm going to try and stay positive that we weren't too late or too early and maybe the power of positive thinking will get me somewhere. You know, like off this seemingly never ending road of disappointment and failure.

This morning it was twice as warm outside as yesterday morning. However, it was still only 30 degrees. I'm so done with Winter and cold weather. I'm a warm weather kind of girl, for sure. Living in Southern California for 4 years when I was a kid spoiled me to no end. We actually got some flurries last night that coated the grass and driveway. I'm over the snow. There are still piles of it all up and down the road and in parking lots...it just won't melt. And it's only early January. Yay.

We have been invited to join our friends (one of which will be celebrating his 50th b-day) in Atlantic City later this month. I need to check to see if we can get a comp room because if we can't, then we aren't going. We had fun with them the last time we went...last January...so if we go, I'm sure it will be a good time. Of course, this all makes me think about the last time we went to A.C. and I was stimming and getting ready for ER. Seems like a lifetime ago but at the same time it seems like just yesterday. I guess the emotions are still pretty raw from all of that. That was our last get away that the 2 of us took so we are due for one. We usually go away in September but we were saving for the house so we didn't go anywhere. It's time.

I don't want to use our real names on this blog but I highly doubt that anyone IRL reads it. If they did, I'm sure they would know who we are by what I write, anyway. I'm going to post some pictures of us pretty soon. And I think I might post some pictures of my scrapbooking work. I'm going to make what's called a Paper Album for BJ for Valentine's Day. It's a small paper album (as the name suggests) that has 12 or 16 pages in it. And it comes with paper and stickers for you to do with as you see fit. It's like a greeting card but it's full of pictures. He has framed photos on his desk of us and the Little Guy that are 3 years old. They were professionally taken pictures so they are nice...but they are old. And the people in his office recently said that they are tired of looking at them. :-) So I'm going to select and print some of my favorite group and couple shots of us for this paper album and he can set it on his desk and people can just come by and flip through it. Or he can stand it up and sort of fan it out to let folks see inside. I figure it's better than buying a store bought card and what do you get a guy for Valentine's Day? So that being said, I will have the pictures on a flash drive here at work so I may as well post them, right? I need to get cracking because the best day for me to work on this is MLK, Jr. day and I need to get the pictures printed soon! That way you guys can put a face to the blog.

I SO hope you caught that eggie! I'll be keeping everything crossed over the next 2 weeks for you!

The private details are funny. My DH always asks if I tell you guys private stuff and I honestly say no because I think my TTC and IF filters are totally skewed. It's not private to tell you guys every day that we had sex for the past month, is it? ;)

Can't wait to see the pix!

Yay for "relations"!

Haha, it is funny sharing all of these intimate details with relative strangers (I've only met a few bloggers), but it feels so normal too.
Me and DH were watching a blue-ray the other night and the "BDLive" option came up and I started laughing. I had to explain what BD meant to Hubby :). Then, later on he actually USED it as a reference to sex and I almost died laughing. And then asked him never to say that again. Haha.
I'm so excited to see some pics :).

I hope that you timed everything perfectly! I will be crossing my fingers & toes for you!

It was funny - I was telling someone in the south today that we were having a heat wave as it was in the low 30s too. I too was spoiled with the nice weather when I lived in Nashville. I hope to move back to the South some day.

I hope that you are able to go to AC and have a nice get-away. I can not wait to see pictures -- and your scrapbooking project sounds neat! I keep telling myself I need to start scrapbooking again. I love it but have not found much time for it lately.
