I Feel Like A HEN!!!!!

Rene' and I have recently started TTC again and so far, so GOOD. We got an Ovulation Predictor Kit and we FINALLY got a smiley face : ) So, in the next 48 hours I should ovulate and we are SO excited. I told Rene' it's pretty ridiculous how excited I was to get the smiley on the OPK, just imagine how I will be if I ever get a positive pregnancy test!!!! Just a little background, I was diagnosed with PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) a few years ago and basically what this means is that I am NOT supposed to ovulate. However, over the past year or so I have had perfect cycles but never got a positive "LH Surge" on an ovulation test. But something just told me that this is going to be the year. I have actually felt my body changing through my ovulation cycle and just thought we would give it another shot. So hopefully we will have some good news to report soon! Keep us in your prayers!

Where has all the time gone?

Tonight Rene' and I went to eat with Melanie (pictured above) and Shane to celebrate Melanie's 30th birthday. We have been friends since I was 12 and she was 16. Now I am 26 and she is 30!!!! What???? I feel like the time has flown by so fast, I mean it seems like yesterday we were riding around in her old car listening to the radio without a care in the world. Now we have jobs, husbands, she has 2 small boys, and all sorts of other "grown up" responsibilities. When did this happen? When did we grow up? I was just sitting at the table tonight thinking about how much our lives have changed in the last 14 years. Sometimes it is still hard for me to believe that we're not teenagers anymore. Does anyone else ever feel that way? Like you went to sleep one night as a kid and woke up the next morning as an adult? I feel like Tom Hanks' character in "Big"! I wouldn't trade anything I have now to go back to childhood though. I kind of like being a grown up. I guess.

Happy 30th Birthday Moosie!

A Little Introduction....

I am new to the blog world and thought I should start off with a little "About Me" post. I am not sure what I am actually doing, so bear with me as I try to figure this all out! I keep asking myself am I really interesting enough to be a blogger? I live an everyday ordinary life with my hubby and fur babies and for some strange reason seem to spend the majority of my life working! How can we change that?? I live in a place I can now appreciate as being one of the most beautiful places on earth and try everyday to appreciate my beautiful surroundings. (Even if I am only seeing the sites through my windshield on my way to work!) My husband and I have been trying for children for a few years now, so far without any luck. I was diagnosed with PCOS a few years ago and have had to face the infertility issues caused by this disease. We want children more than anything, but we are learning to accept that we may not be parents. My husband would be the most wonderful father and I want so much to be able to fulfill that dream for him. However, we are not Mr. and Mrs. Mopey, we are happy in our life together and if God so wishes to answer our prayer one day with a child we would be ecstatic. It is His will, not ours. We have placed this in His hands and can only pray that He chooses us to be parents one day...
