19 Facts About Ovulation – According to BuzzFeed

I was going through my Facebook Newsfeed, and this article from BuzzFeed kept popping up: 19 Facts About Ovulation That May Surprise You. I generally like BuzzFeed’s “listicles” but this one annoyed me. Maybe it’s because I know too much about ovulation, or because some of the things near the bottom of the list are absurd.Uterus Continue reading

A new job already???

DH officially had his last day of work 3 days ago. He’s been loving his days off, and I’m very jealous that he gets to sleep in. At least I convinced him to cook me dinner…once.

After DH gave his notice at his last job, he met with one company through an intro by his sister’s friend. We’re very blessed to have people in our network who are so willing to help us out. DH just found out that he got the job!! We don’t know when he’s starting yet, but we think it will be near the end of September. That will give him some time to get some stuff done around the house! LOL. The base salary is minimum wage, but it is heavily incentivized. This is his first customer facing job. I know he will do well, I just hope he enjoys it.

Thank you so much for all of your prayers while we were going through this hard time. I feel so blessed right now! God is good!!

Things are looking up!

DH had his last day of work on Saturday. His demeanour is a complete 180! I’m so thankful for all of your prayers and support. I’m beyond relieved that he’s so much happier than he was a month ago, and he’s stopped taking his anti-depressants. I didn’t think such a simple (although drastic) change can help DH feel so much better. He’s back to his old happy self, making jokes, and bashing my Dallas Cowboys (I think I need a new team!).

Driving and Reflecting

When I visited my in-law’s vacation home last weekend, I had to drive about 4.5 hours to get there. I drove by myself because the timing just didn’t work out with my SIL. I wasn’t too excited about the drive because I hadn’t driven the route in a few years. DH usually does the driving. After I got out of the city, and horrific holiday weekend traffic, the drive was actually really nice.

DH’s Ultrasound Results

DH went for his scrotal ultrasound today. We waited over 3 months for this appointment. It’s good news, and bad, I guess.

He showed up an hour early by mistake, because he didn’t read his confirmation email. Usually, I handle all the appointments and I make a calendar reminder on his phone for him. But the clinic contacted him directly for the appointment, and he didn’t let me know the exact time. At least he wasn’t late. It just sucked for him because he thought his appointment was at 6:45 am instead of 7:45 am. Anyway, as much as I want to, I can’t control everything. Continue reading

End of Summer

NaramataHow was everyone’s long weekend? I was able to get up to DH’s family vacation home for the long weekend. DH had to work, so I was there with his sisters and parents. My 14 month old niece was also there. She is just so adorable. She’s just learning to walk now, so she wants someone to walk with her all the time. It’s so cute watching her trying to figure things out. You can just see the wheels turning in her head. It was a nice getaway. It’s a small town with not much to do, so I spent a lot of time relaxing at the house, and lying by the pool. The town is also wine country, so needless to say, I spent way too much money on wine, but I guess that’s a bonus for not being pregnant right? I get to drink as much wine as I want!! The picture is a view from one of the wineries nearby. This is also very close to where we got married last year. Continue reading
