One step closer.

So my hubby and I finally made the trip to the lab that the fertility specialist recommended for a second semen analysis; we had our first appointment in September but had to cancel and since then between our cruise, work schedule and timing we were not able to get in until today... thank goodness because he leaves for work trip next week for 5 days! We now need to call our specialist to make a follow up appointment to get our lab results and see what lies ahead for us in our journey of TTC.

I am absolutely exhausted, I did not sleep well because I had a sick puppy...hubby siad when he came home for lunch yesterday she had gotten into our potatos and was jsut walking around with it in her mouth so proud. He took it away and told her that was bad and she came out with two more before he left.  She has never gotten into them before, guess we need to put them higher. I am thinking that the raw potato is behind her upset belly at 3 in the morning. Of course she continued to cry, growl, and whimper because she wanted back up on the bed, but I did not want to tak any chances of her getting sick on the bed. Hopefully I get better sleep tonight!

Busy, busy, busy....

I can't believe the weekend has came and went already.  We went to our friends' house Friday evening to play cards, got home around 10:30p and went to bed, I had to work a health fair Saturday morning,so I had to leave my house by 7:30a to get there on time to get set up and ready to start by 9a.  I left there around 12:30p and headed home. I ate a quick lunch and then I layed down for two hours before getting ready to go work my part time job at 4:30p.  I got home from that job at 10:00p and stayed up for a little while before going to bed because I had to be back at work at 9:30a.  I came home for my lunch break and went back till 5:00p.  I was wore out and hungry.  My hubby got our gutter fixed on Saturday with thehelp of his Dad, thank heavens, it has been falling for a while now.  Everything had to be taken down, new wood put in and then everything put back up.  He also got the new medicine cabinet and light fixture put in our bathroom, it looks so nice. I plan on going home today after work and loading all of our stuff back in it. Te only left ot do in our bathroom is to do the floor, I hope to get that started this week, once the floor is in then we can fasten the cabinet to the wall, right now it is jsut sitting in there, sink needs fastened also. So once that is all done, I can put in the new curtain, rugs, towels, accesories and pictures on the wall. I can't wait to see it all done.  My hunbby and I watched a movie while we drank some yummy red wine that we bought from the wine festival that we went to in May... and I ate some dark chocolate with my wine..goes well with red!

Where does the time go?

I cannot believe it is almost Halloween, thanksgiving is right around the corner and before I know it, it will be Christmas! I recently started a new part time job that so far I really like, it is a completely different pace from seasonal job and yet so different form my full time job...confused? I have worked at a jewelry store for the past ten years, when I first started I was full time, then I went to part time, and for the past 8 years I have been "seasonal", but I usually work year round when the hours are available. Well the hours have slowly been dropping the last two years and this year I have not worked since may, and that was only about 10 hours between 2 days. Needless to say I have been actively looking for other part time work and finally came across something that would work great with my full time hours, so I applied, interviewed twice, was offered the position....and accepted! I will get my first check next week and I can't wait. The plan was to quit the jewelry store, I do not need or want to work 3 jobs, but I am actually going to help out through the holidays, so November I am only working 3 days, no problem.
My hubby has been a huge help already while I am working 2 jobs. He has been doing some cleaning and cooking. Yesterday, he painted our garage door, still needs another coat or two, he painted 2 of our 6 shutters, and he weeded the front flower beds and put new mulch in. Looks great. I finally had him take down the old medicine cabinet wednesday so I could finish painting above, behind, and around where it was haning on the wall, so all the painting is completely done in our bathroom. I am hoping that when he gets home from work we can hang the new cabinet and light fixture. I am anxious to have a mirrow and better light in the bathroom, plus all of our medicaine cabinet supplies are in a box waiting to be returned to their home.
I would love if we could have all of our projects done before the holidays so that maybe we could have something at our house, but right now no way do I want guests coming over for a big holiday dinner with the way everything looks right now. Besides we still have not put up our brand new kitchen table, waiting for the floor to get done...may have to put it up regardless, we can not leave it in the garage through winter, it could get ruined. One project at a time, the kitchen will get done eventually. TGIF.
