This post will be a dump of random stuff. Enjoy.

~My parents have been here for the past 5 days and I have LOVED having them here.
I really don't want them to leave tomorrow morning. I'm going to be a mess.

~My job hunt still sucks. I never in a million years thought it was going to be this hard. 

~Tomorrow we are going to the car dealership and attempting to work out a deal 
to trade in my car. I know it's just a car, but it sucks. 

~My 18 pregnant friends have started having their babies. It's worse than watching 
them all announce their pregnancy. Here they are having their babies, and I'm still 
trying my hardest to get pregnant. It's so unfair.

~The pain of IF sucks, and while I would never wish it on anyone, I kinda wish some people 
knew the pain and frustration of struggling with IF. I have so many friends who take it for granted. 
Maybe I am naive because I've never been pregnant, but I just want to tell some of them 
to sit back and try to enjoy it. It's not that easy for everyone, and many people would LOVE to be in their position.

~I ventured out to Hobby Lobby for the millionth time today and bought some fabric. They have
the most adorable fabric. I could spend hundreds of dollars there. Thank goodness I don't have 
a steady income so that won't be a problem. 

~While this move has been anything close to fun, easy or remotely enjoyable, it has brought
Travis and I closer together and taught us to rely on each other more than we ever have before.
This situation has reminded me what an awesome guy I married.

~This is going to sound terrible, but I'm shocked how stupid some of my "friends" are when it comes 
to their own labor and delivery. It makes me sad they are so uneducated about it, but then I wonder 
why they don't research it and know what's really going on with their own body. 

~Maybe I am just crazy but I'm really surprised how many people are willing to drop $500+ on a 
crib for their child, but only spend $200 on a stroller/travel system/convertible car seat. REALLY?
Your child's car seat, that could essentially save their life, you are to be a cheap ass on, but there 
is no holding back on a piece of furniture that will sit there for maybe 2 years.
Please tell me if I am missing something, because I just don't get it.


  1. Love this post.

    And, I know who you are referring to on the clueless about delivery thing thanks to FB posting on my news feed. Has she had the baby yet?

    And totally agree on the crib/travel system thing. Blech and WTF.

    Glad you and Travis are bonding more. That's a good thing!!

  2. No, she hasn't had the baby yet. There are actually 2 of them, although I'm sure several more will be popping up in the coming weeks.

  3. 18 pregnant friends! Too bad we don't live closer... we could go out and get drinks.

    I feel and understand your pain. Wish there were magic words to make you feel better. Hugs!
