Catching Up!

Wow, I didn't realize I hadn't been here in so long. Well, I guess I have been here doing technical stuff but not posting. One of my 101 things is to blog everyday for a month so I am going to start that today (08.22.05)

TTC- We are still waiting. My chart was looking really good two days ago and now its just so-so. I think today is day 9 so I will test on day 12 or so if my temp has plumeted.

Crochet- I have been working on my halloween table topper. It's working up slowly now, but I am still very interested in completing it. I also need to finish up my squares for the swap. I don't want to have to be doing them the last minute.

Christmas- Yes, I am already thinking about Christmas. I think I have an idea for Trevor's collegues and some of our friends, so I am going to order some things and try to get organized ahead of time this year and not panic two days before.

Trevor- Well, Trevor was on call most of the weekend so I stayed with mom. And get this. He is on call today, friday and sunday and then he will be at camp wednesday and thursday. So I will get to see him tuesday night for a couple hours and then saturday night for a couple hours. Yuck! He promised next month will be better.

Misc.- I am reading a really good book called "The Great Influenza"...its about the influenza epidemic of 1912. I saw a short documentary on it and thought that I would enjoy reading it. I also got a book called "The Hot Zone" about ebola and "Hitler's Scientist" about the Nazi scientist and their experiments (should be interesting and horrible).

Hoping to work on some craft stuff tonight when I get home since I have the house to myself.



Happy Monday!

Ok, not sure that its so happy, but it is Monday :) Spent the weekend with my mom as Trevor went up north with one of his buddies from med school. It was a nice, quiet weekend. I still have a cold from a week ago and my mom just got sick this weekend so we laid low. I started working on a new crochet project. Its a holiday table topper for Halloween. I'm hoping get it done before the end of October, but we will see. I really like working with thread. I didn't think I would, but it seems to work up pretty quickly. Promise to post pics of my progress soon.

On the TTC front- think I may have ovulated this weekend on saturday. I'm so tired of this whole thing I try not to think about it. So if I did O I will be testing on the 27th..ugh, the 2 week wait is horrible.

Ok, must get back to work, but I'm planning on shopping for my SP today!!




We got a call tonight from my mom saying that some called her and said that they had Joey!!! We went over and it was him....!!! He's so skinny, but other than he is just wonderful!! I can't believe that he made it home. I never thought we would see him again. I'm going to be taking some pictures of him tomorrow so I can make a scrapbook page of this horrible event. Ok, off to spend some more time with him!



Secret Pal Surprise

I got home from work today and had a surprise waiting for me!! I was having a ho-hum day and it was so wonderful to have something waiting for me. My SP is the best!! I received homespun yarn, tea, "tickle" yarn (thinking of a project to use this for already), a beautiful butterfly pen, a cute turtle washcloth, a kitty that looks just like Pede and a turtle change purse that I am going to beg my SP for the pattern for...it is SO cute!! And then when I came to post a thank-you I had an email too!!! I can't wait to find out who my SP is!!! Thank you SP if you read this!!

Kailani's Sweater

Here is the sweater that I finished for my neice Kailani. It worked up really quick and I was very pleased with it.


Happy Hump Day!

Not too much to report today. Had a good night with Trevor last night which was nice since he is on call tonight and won't be home until sometime tomorrow. I'm planning on going out to eat with my mom tonight.

Spent some time working on a couple squares last night for the swap. I found a pattern that I really like. I will see if I can find the link.

Other than that I spent the night working on my 101 things in 1001 day list. That will be coming soon. I think I'm up to 70 things.

I also spent some time making something for my secret pal. I would like to post it, but that would give it away. I will post the pics of everything at the end of the swap.



Secret Pal

Almost forgot...I got my assigned secret pal today!! And I received an e-card from the person that has me. I'm so excited!



Here is the ripple that I sent to my good friend Andrea. I really enjoyed making it...definitely worked up fast.


Happy Monday!

Things are starting to look up! I had a nice long weekend with my mom to kind of reflect on my life and see where I want to go from here. My reflection kind of started when I came upon a blog that 101 things to do in 1001 days. Its just what is sound like...you come up with 101 things you would like to complete in 1001 days. I have started my list, but still have a ways to go. I will be posting it when its done.

TTC- On the TTC front we are out this month, but I have a doctor's appointment on Friday so hopefully he will have some suggestions.

Joey- Joey, our wonderful cat is still missing. We had a call last night from someone that found a cat, but it wasn't him. I am going to go to the Animal control Office and the Humane Society today just to check again.

Crochet- Didn't get hardly anything done this weekend. I still only have 4 squares done for the swap, but I still have some time. I am also starting a cute dress for a baby. Not sure who its going to, just coulnd't resist it.

Other than that, not much is going on! Going to post a pic of my ripple in the next post!
