New Truck

I got a new truck Friday!!! I will take a picture and post for you tomorrow. It has been a crazy weekend and I just haven't done it yet and now it is too dark outside. We got a 2007 Toyota 4Runner. Is is Galactic Grey Metallic, which is like a Pewter color with a hint of blue in it. I love it!!! The local dealership who never deals much gave us a SUPER deal because it was the last 2007 on the lot and they really wanted to get rid of it. Plus, we qualified for 2.9% financing!! We traded in Burt's BIG Red Dodge Ram 1500 Quad Cab that got 12 miles to the gallon and we kept my Toyota Sequoia. That is what Burt is driving now.

Today is cd 8 so I have been taking the Letrozole for a few days now. So far not really any side effects. I did wake up this morning with some hot flashes but they were not nearly as bad as with the clomid. I pray this works. Even if I don't get pregnant. I just pray I ovulate. Even though I would rather get pregnant but I at least need to know this is working. Does that make sense?

My birthday is October 1st but Burt went ahead and gave me my birthday gift last night because he accidentally let it slip what it was. It was new watch, which I needed. I will post a pic of that tomorrow as well. My niece, Anna Kate, has a birthday coming up. Her 3rd will be Thursday and then Burt's 29th is Friday and then my 28th is the next Monday (1st). We are going home this weekend to celebrate all the birthday with a princess birthday (that is mainly for Anna Kate).

CD 1

Well, she came. Aunt Flo has been knocking on the door all day and finally came in this afternoon. Oh well, at least this cycle was finally over and I can start the new meds. Keep us in your prayers as we start this new medication this week. I am really nervous about it. I am so scared that I won't ovulate on it.

Bummer. I think AF will be here tomorrow. My temp dropped today. And I even had an implantation dip right when I should have. AF is due tomorrow so I am sure she will come right on time in the morning.

We have been so busy today. We never cleaned the stickers off of the windows when we moved in the new house. We borrowed some scaffolding and have been cleaning all day. We are not quite finished. we also cleaned out the garage and cleaned off the back porch. The front porch is filthy. But I don't know when we will get to finish it. We have church in the morning and then Burt has 2 tennis matches tomorrow afternoon/night. Monday I have a board meeting at the tennis club and Burt has to referee a junior high football game that got rained out Thursday night because of the monsoon that came from the remnants of the hurricane that hit Texas. Then Tuesday night we both have a tennis match. Wednesday night he has church and I have class. Thursday night he has to call a game and I have class and Bunko. And then we are back to Friday. We are way too busy. We need to slow down. We missed Burt's nieces sixth birthday party today. I feel really bad but her Mom waited until this week to plan it and we had plans around the house. Plus, I looked at the calendar and since March we have had 2 weekends at home with nothing to do. And between now and Thanksgiving, there won't be but a couple more.

I guess one positive will come this week from AF visiting. I will get to start the new fertility drug, Letrozole. Has anyone taken this? Any side effects? Anything I should expect? Anything you feel like telling me about it? Did it work for anyone?

We took the youth to the concert (VerticalFest) last night. It was ok. Not really my taste in music. There were 13 bands and some were really good. It was Heavy Metal Christian music. But two of the band would sometimes stop in the middle of the set and have a time of worship and sing praise songs. It was really nice when they did that. The kids had fun and it was all about Jesus so I really can't complain. We got home about 1 am. I am exhausted today. I had to sign for the deaf for both service in church today. I forgot to take my synthroid yesterday. i remembered it at 11 pm last night on the bus and then there was nothing I could do, so I feel AWFUL today. Hopefully, I can get some rest tonight though.

Another Long Week....

Working at USDA full-time and teaching two night classes on top of that is kicking my butt!!!!

I went home this past weekend to see Mom and the boys. We had a GREAT time. Eli and Noah spent the entire weekend with us. Amy and Todd even cooked barbecue for me, Mom, KK, Aunt Ann, Uncle Sonny, Nannie, and Papaw on Monday. I got home about 7:30 Monday night. I had hoped to be home sooner than that, but oh well, such is life.

Worked Tuesday. Played tennis Tuesday night.

Class Wednesday night and Thursday night.

Work today. It has been a crazy busy week at work. I helped Dr. Peterson with the fish at the hatchery in a study he is doing because Monica has not been there all week (she is his technician). She will probably not be in for at least another week. I am so worried about her. She hasn't left the house since Sunday. She's not taking calls or visitors either. She is in a serious state of depression. And rightly so. I am just so worried about her. And so many people have called her and they have no clue what to say and they end up making things worse.

We are going to Pine Bluff to an 8 hour contemporary Christian concert tomorrow. I think there are 7 artists performing. We are taking the youth from the church. I hope to get some sleep on Sunday between Morning services and evening services. I have so much to do around the house though.

And on top of that. I am on CD 23 and my BBT chart is showing no ovulation. My temps have not risen at all. I have all the classic signs of ovulation but my temp has not risen. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Has anyone else ever ovulated and the temp didn't rise? I didn't use an OPK this month because they usually don't work anyway (Dr. Isaacs said they only work for 85% of women anyway) and when I should have ovulated I was at Mom's house and Burt was here so there was no point anyway.

Check out my friends', Jeff and Abby, blog
They are on their way to Taiwan right now to get their precious little baby Reed that they adopted. He is 6 months old. They will be home next Friday.

Long Week

Last week was a very long week for me. Sorry I didn't get any posts done. Here is a breakdown of my week:

Monday - Dr. Isaacs - we all know how that went

Tuesday - Tired from Monday. It was a long day in Jackson at the doctor and didn't get home until 9:30. Went to bed Tuesday night when I got home from work.

Wednesday - Taught night class after my full-time job.

Thursday - Taught night class after my full-time job.

Friday - My friend Monica, the one who is pregnant and got married in June, lost her baby. They really don't know what happened. She was 24 weeks. They are going to run some tests. I have told you before that she wasn't using an OB. She was seeing a family practitioner and I didn't like some of the things he was telling her. I'm really worried about her. She is blaming herself. She had just told me last Thursday that she hated being pregnant. She said God took her baby because she was ungrateful and complained so much. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers. She and Jay have along road ahead of them. They had just ordered Lindey's nursery bedding and it came in over the weekend. I left here Friday and went and went to see Mom. Eli and Noah spent the night with us Friday night and then Saturday we met Amy and Todd and went shopping. Then to church on Sunday. Sunday afternoon Trey and Sidnette brought Essi for all of us to meet (the little girl they have adopted). She is 4 and is precious. Late Sunday afternoon Mom and I went to town shopping. Then yesterday we had lunch at Amy adn Todd's house (yes, they cooked). Then we spent the afternoon boxing up baby clothes and going through all of Eli's clothes. I brought back 8 of the BIG rubbermaids full of clothes. Now if only I have a boy. If we have a girl I don't know what I will do with all of this. Now I have to go home today and unpack it all. I'm not even pregnant and will have a closet full of clothes. I hope I don't lose it while I am unpacking.
