Boring Bloggers

So I agreed to the blogging for the "back up to my mental hard drive", remember? So why am I concerned with our mundane profile? Why am I not studying right now? Who really cares about our longing to have a baby, or a nacho cheese accident, or my thoughts on abortion? I am sooo overtired... but work and class tonight has left me wanting "me time". Carey is cross-stitching, watching a CSI type show. Ordinarily I would have a gnawing feeling eating at me because she is wasting her life watching tv...arrgh! But the cross-stitching somehow justifies her unproductiveness (I'm thinking this could be an actual word)- and I am okay to pursue countless youtube videos and google searches :). Last night I was watching beat boxing on youtube- who knew these talented people existed? One link led to another...I watched Ellen episodes of talented child prodigies, asian 13 yr olds beatboxing, wheel of fortune funnies, and one especially funny video called "what is a ho?" We laughed pretty good at that one... and I ticked my mom off when I posted it on her newly developed myspace page. "How do i get it off of there?"!!! She says, disappointed I have tarnished her online image...hehehe... Speaking of online image- i am trying to clean mine up a little. I heard that people get paid to do this- totally understandable if you ask me- I was so much more open about my sexuality before I had a real job to maintain and a family to protect... and I think those old personal ads on are finally deleted. Did I mention that I graciously deleted Carey's profile on there too? :) That girl is all mine xoxoxo.

Hayden and I have a new hobby...Letterboxing! I read about it on another blog and thought we would give it a try. The way it works is very simple. People hid letterboxes all over the country and we use clues to find the letterboxes. When we find them, we stamp with a rubberstamp in the book in the letterbox and then use the stamp in the letterbox to stamp our book. Stamping is a way to keep track of all the letterboxes that we find and to remember the experience. We found our first letterbox on Saturday. It took us a few hours and we got lost several times, but we finally found it by a tree in a park in Rock Hill. It is a fun activity that gives me a chance to spend some one on one time with Hayden. He is such a smart boy and I love his excitement over doing this together. We forgot the camera this time, but I will post pictures of our next find :)
Happy Monday everyone!!

Nacho Cheese???

Earlier today I noticed I had a voicemail on my cellphone. I called my voicemail and this is what I heard:

Mackenzie : "Carey, can you call Grandpop and tell him I need him to bring me an extra set of clothes up to the school? I spilt juice all over my pants and then some kid slung nacho cheese all over my shirt. I don't want to walk around like this the rest of the day. Thank you."

Plans For Baby

I haven't mentioned our TTC journey on our blog yet, so I guess now is as good a time as ever. I have felt kind of down about being on hold with it for so long, but I think that we are about to get started again.

We love our boys very much and would really like to have at least one (maybe 2..we go back and forth on that) more together to complete our family. We talk about it alot to and the boys are excited. They would love to have a brother (their dad has a daughter so they have a little sister already).

We have already done 6 IUIs with a Reproductive Endocrinologist in Charlotte, but no pregnancy yet. I have PCOS, which has made this a little tougher. I did one cycle with Clomid and 5 cycles with injectible fertility drugs. We have an appointment in December with a different doctor in Raleigh to get a second opinion and see if we should move on to IVF or try a few more IUIs.

Keep us in your prayers for good news in December!

5 Wonderful Years!

Janine and I have been together 5 years now! It seems like just yesterday that I met this amazing woman with cute freckles and hot legs LOL! She is one of the most driven, loving, selfless people that I know. I love the family that we have created and am so thankful to have found my soulmate!

Happy 5th Anniversary!

My soulmate... Always and forever

Our Furry Children

Since I shared pictures of the boy children, it is only fair to our four-legged children to post their pictures too. They are all 3 near and dear to us and we love to show them off :)
