Roxi- That is super cool! I need to work on my genealogy. It's a pretty big thing to do in the LDS church. I am a convert so I have EXTRA work to do. :/ Beh. But I think it's super cool. My dad thinks I'm the perfect person to do the work.
Meg- having a reunion at a lake house sounds like so much fun! :) That's great that the appointment went well. I hope that nothing is going on too bad with your shoulder. Hmm. that would be interesting if it's the period starting causing the achy-ness.
She is about 6 months old. She's still really playful.. She'll attack Riley's toys even when they are just sitting there.
So I have been meaning to buy a swim suit and I realized that I don't know exactly how big I'm going to get this summer so it didn't make TOO much sense to buy a regular swimsuit so DH and I decided to get a cute maternity swim suit. It fits fine without being pregnant but will still be great while preggers.
Oh so today I've been married to my DH for THREE WHOLE months. HEHE
Maddie...Happy 3 month anniversary to you and DH! Sounds like you made a good decision on the swimsuit.
The whole joint pain with period and premature ovarian failure is that low estrogen levels can cause an inflammatory response, so in turn causes joint pain..or so I've read and been told by others with POF. I do notice that my hips and knees hurt right before my period. I need to start paying better attention or logging it to track it better.
Tomorrow my girls are going to a piano workshop. They will each play a solo and they each play a duet with eachother. There are also other learning stations where they can do different things related to music and piano and get ribbons. On Sunday we are going to go visit my cousin and her new baby boy. I saw them in the hospital on Wednesday but the girls haven't met him yet. He is such a precious baby.
DH just left for work. I'm sure he'll be gone all night. I'll probably sit and read before going to bed.

I don't sleep well if he's just out with "the boys".... and not because I don't trust him. I don't like the bed being empty, nor the house. It's a little easier to handle since we got our dog. She likes to snuggle me most of the night, and even sleeps with her head on my pillow :)

I caved tonight and pee'd on one of my digi tests so that I could tell DH only to find out I was supposed to wait for it to "switch on" before peeing and now it won't give a read-out. GRRRRR. I told my BFF today and that has made me want to tell DH now instead of waiting another week.
Thanks ladies. It is silly to be like OH YAY 3 months! But that's ok. We didn't celebrate or anything. Just acknowledged.
Meg- I agree with Roxi, sounds like you have a busy weekend ahead of you. I don't like to sleep alone either... well maybe. DH loves to hog our queen size bed. I pretty much get smushed against the wall.
DH and I have a problem with LOST. We get into phases where we watch it TONS. We are on season 3. I think we might be getting burnt out though because we haven't watched in a while. But for a while we didn't do much else but watch LOST. What is that show about Roxi?
Roxi- DANGIT. I hate when I screw that kinda thing up! I'm glad you decided to tell him. I just think that if you do have c/p you'll want his comfort and support. Let us know how it goes ok! :)
So today is my son's birthday! He's FIVE!! Holy cow, it's gone so fast... yet it's been forever in some ways. I was looking at his baby photos last night. I love him sooo much! While I can't stand his dad, he did give me the best little boy. Patrick and I are going to spend the day with him and do things he wants to do. And then next week we are going to have a party. My parents are outta town (as you already know) so I decided to wait. We don't have very many gifts for him right now but I figure we can give him what we have and then for his party give him a little more.
Pat and I started talking about names. It took us a couple months to decide on Kamdyn Carter so we figure we'll start early. We don't like the girl names we had picked out anymore either so we have to come up with things.
I keep getting the feeling I'm having twins... So I'm super anxious for May 1.
Game of Thrones is about these 3 noble families who live in what seems to be medieval times but it's like in a different version of earth. There are dragons and lots of fighting. I'm not doing it any justice but it is AWESOME! If you like fantasy stuff, that is. I have been wanting to watch LOST for ages!! All my friends say it loses the plot around season 3 tho. We also become obsessed with series and end up doing marathons of them. DH watched each season of 24 in about 30 hours. I got bored after season 3. I tend to watch series just to fill in the spaces of the days. I don't like silence in the house and I get annoyed with radio DJ's so I end up having Netflix on all the time. I also like to go back to the series I watched when I was younger (like Charmed, Buffy, Angel, I even went through a teen angst period of watching The Secret Life of an American Teenager and One Tree Hill) and watch them in the right order.

We made it through the Keyboard Kapers. The girls had a really fun time and are already asking if they can do it next year. There was a room full of theory games. They each played a solo and two duets and were "judged" on them. The judges gave them some really nice critiquing on how to improve their songs. They all got the same color ribbons for completing each center so it wasn't competitive. I took them out for lunch after. When we got home DD2 and 3 completed the experimenting for their Science Fair project. They are testing the absorbancy and durability/strength of different brands of paper towels. Tonight DD1 is a mass server at mass.
DH has really strange hours. He is "on-call" in the ER. Since we live only 3 minutes from the hospital he can be home with us when he doesn't have a patient in the ER. If he has a patient there, he needs to stay there. His call shifts vary anywhere from 12hrs up to 120 hrs. He's usually on-call about 350-400 hrs/month. I've gotten used to sleeping alone. If he gets called out after 9pm, he just stays at the hospital and sleeps there so he doesn't have to go back out in the middle of the night. There are even sometimes where I'm so used to having the bed to myself that I have a hard time sleeping when he's here.
I have a hard time believing I've known the girls for 7 years. I've known them for over half of their life. I always tease people that I got them at the perfect age...they were sleeping through the night and were potty trained.
Meg: It sounds like the girls had a blast at the Keyboard Kapers. That is definitely something DH would like to send our kid/s to. He started learning to play the piano when he was 5 and also plays the guitar. I only started learning the piano at age 12 and didn't get very far. I sitll like to play the songs I know though.
I wasn't disappointed at his reaction, really. His reaction to the previous pregnancy was "oh! that was easy" :P because I'd made a huge deal about how it could take months/years because of my endometriosis. And he usually takes a while to wake up. I debated just leaving the test next to his phone while I went out to the dog park....
:ROFL: at your last paragraph!!
I have once again had the least productive Saturday ever. Even though (or maybe because) I get up at 7.30/8am the weekends to take the dog to the park I never seem to get anything else done. I always get so tired after lunch.
I really wanted my girls to play the piano. This is their 5th year of lessons. I started taking lessons when I was in 4th grade and kept taking lessons until I graduated high school. I still enjoy sitting down and playing the piano. It's a good stress reliever. I also play violin. I started lessons 4 years ago. It was something I had always wanted to do. The same person that teaches me violin teaches the girls piano. She kind of lives at our house on Mondays since she comes here to do lessons. She starts mine at 2pm and leaves sometimes at 7pm when she is done with all the lessons.
Usually my weekends are not as productive as they are this weekend. We are pretty boring usually. With the end of the school year coming up things get busier.
DH is still crabby. Idk if it's still from our arguement on Thursday night of if he's just really tired. He went to bed at 2am this morning and was up again at 6am and has had a fairly busy day in the ER. So it's probably better that me and the girls are on the go most of this weekend.
Meg - welcome to our club haha. Sorry I have been missing in action! I have no internet at home so only get on during the week! DBF and I were fine when I got home on Friday, he was just being a typical man. I go to work fretting over it and he acts like nothing happened grrrr.
I'm sorry to hear of your infertility, how did you handle that? Kudos to you for taking on DHs daughters! That must have been so hard on them losing their Mum, how did they take to you? Sorry to be so nosy but it genuinely interests me.
Maddie - I have an 8 month old kitty - I love her too bits but DBF can't stand her so it looks like I will need to find her a new home. DD will be devastated!
MIL is over at the moment so we've been entertaining her - it is so difficult, she moans about everything. Must be where DBF gets it from! haha.
