I really do not know what to say this week, so here are a few random thoughts… I apologize for the disjointed composition.

I just finished cleaning my house, and I have to say that I really like my Dyson Vacuum. We have a lot of animals, and this vacuum gets up a whole lot of pet hair. I love the fact that it is easy to use. The user manual shows you how to take the whole thing apart and clean it. Very cool. A vacuum that actually works.

Scrubbing ortho cases is very different than anything I have done before. You have to work differently and think differently. I am trying to get it, because I have to know it, but I think I am a general girl at heart, and miss general surgery. Then there are the power tools. I do not know what to think about that.

I started AF today. Just spotting right now, but I know the full flow is on its way. I may start the Midol tonight so that hopefully I can stay on top of the cramps. I just have a day or two of really bad cramping at the start of the period, but that is all. I did not get as depressed as I usually do around my period. I am not sure why. Maybe it is the fact that we are moving in a week, and that is more on my mind than my fertility, or lack thereof.

I just realized we are moving in a week. I think this means we need to start packing. I saved boxes from when we moved from Tappahannock, but I am afraid we may need more. I guess we will see. We hired movers this time. So all we have to do is pack everything, and they will do the rest. That should be really nice. I may take the dogs to playgroup in the morning so that the movers can get started, at least, without big dogs getting in the way. I am really excited to finally settle.

I realized this week that I love living in the mountains. I love looking up and seeing mountains around me. I think it makes me feel safe. I love the area we are living in. There is stuff to do, things to get involved in. I love it. I am happier out here than I ever was in Tappahannock. It feels good.

Thank you for your comment. I think we may be in a holding-state too, until DH can work through this whole thing. I'm leaving it all in his hands for right now.
The whole infertility thing sucks, I would rather that it's my "fault", than his.

Thanks again.

Hubby is dealing with it a lot better now. Give him time and space, and be as supportive as you can. We have both male and female factors. Mine was discovered first, and his was discovered within the past year. the male factor is still new for him.

I also am leaving it up to him as to what he wants to do. He is going to have to live with the option we choose.

Give it time, and things will get better. Sending big hugs your way.

Moving is so very exciting... And I totally hear you on the mountains. I lived in Houston for a while and we've visited family in Indiana. I feel so naked without my mountains around me. I'm so glad I've come home.
