Phew…okay, sorry I’ve been a little scatterbrained and all over the place lately. A lot has been happening that I wasn’t able to talk about yet, but I think now I can at least give you a quick overview of what’s going on.
*This is CD7. No meds. Just acupuncture & herbs. We’ll see how that goes. For some reason I’ve reached a point where I don’t really ever expect to see a BFP. I guess I’m just numb? Has anyone else felt this way?
*I’m back to counting calories and trying to work out 6x/week. I need to get back on the horse and get to my goal weight, sooner rather than later!
*We went to a GORGEOUS wedding this past weekend (pics coming soon) out at the Do.ubl.e R.L. Ranch (owned by Ra.lph & Ri.cki. Lau.ren). It is an absolutely stunning ranch, and it was a great wedding. The bride is one of my very best friends in town here, and she was absolutely stunning on her wedding day. I love weddings. 🙂
*My parents are coming to visit this week! They live in MN and we live 1,100 miles away in southwest Colorado. I cannot wait to have them here. 🙂 Sadly, they’re delaying their trip for a day because of the crazy flooding going on in their area right now. They’re farmers and many of their (beautiful, gorgeous) crops are already underwater with almost another 1,000 in danger of flooding out in the next day or so.
That’s my Grandparent’s Home Farm in the back left.
This road is just to the west of my parent’s house. 🙁
It’s a crappy situation, but there’s really nothing you can do but wait and see if the river quits rising. It’s amazing how much rain they’re received this year… for awhile it was a great thing, but at this point, it really needs to QUIT RAINING. *sigh*
*Our household is about to drastically change, in more ways than one. This weekend our younger dog (Kasey) is going to go to a new home in MN (on my parent’s farm!). We just can’t handle him anymore – he’s a border collie / rottweiler mix, and he is a JUMPER. No matter what we do, he just wants to jump our fence & run… so it was finally decided that he might have a better home in MN at my parent’s place where he can run for miles and not bother the neighbors. I don’t think I’ve really wrapped my head around the fact that he’s leaving yet, but it will be real when he drives away with my parents this weekend. At least I don’t feel like we’re totally abandoning him since I know he’ll be going to a great home!
*My husband’s job is still in flux… he’s been out of work the past three weeks (scrambling for little side jobs – thank God he’s been able find a few!) and we’re hoping he gets back to work full time asap, because…
*I put in my 2 weeks notice last Wednesday. Well, not even two weeks, but my “hey, I’ve been waiting for nearly a month to discuss the issues I raised in my review and nothing has happened so it’s time for me to move on” notice. I’m petrified that this is an awful time to quit my job. I was the only solid income and the mortgage is a scary thing to face,but I needed to find a job where I’m happier and more content.
*That being said, as of (hopefully) this Friday, I’ll be running the bar at a new bar & restaurant that’s opening just a few blocks from our house. I’m not sure if I’m totally ready to work nights & weekends again, but some sort of change needed to happen, and this is a great opportunity for me. The owner of the building is opening the restaurant – she’s a great cook and will be running the restaurant side, but she knows nothing about the bar side, so that will be my responsibility. We’re still negotiating a few things, but for the most part we’re all set. I’m so excited to be doing a job where I’m not sitting in front of a computer every day!
*…so where does that leave this blog? I have no idea. I don’t want to leave this world at all – you ladies have been so wonderful to me. I definitely won’t be in front of a computer much at all (though thanks to my first ever Blackberry it will be a little easier to keep in touch)…but we’ll have to see how my blog reading goes. I follow a lot of you b/c I connect to you all in different ways – I hope I can continue that! It just might be a quiet month or so for me while this whole transition takes place.
I hope every else’s weeks are going well! It’s 80 degrees and beautiful today, which makes me happy. 🙂
