I had an excellent weekend.
Saturday I awoke way too early because it was raining. A very foreign sound to me these days. Then I decided since I am up I am up and I will start cleaning. I vacuumed and shampooed the living room floor. Then went to drag Klay out of bed to help, but instead fell asleep until 11:30, when I was woke up by a telemarketer, we didn't answer but she left an entire message in Spanish on the machine. So then I was up, for good this time since my house was horribly dirty and my inlaws were coming over. Mother in law, Father in law, Sister in law, Brother in law, Grandmother in law. ..the whole gang! Yikes!! Not a day to sleep in!!
So we ate fried Spam and Mac and Cheese and began "the flight of the Bumblebee" as Klay likes to call our cleaning sprees! My house is now very neat and clean..floors mopped, bathroom scrubbed, stove moderately clean, kitchen table actually cleaned off to a useable state, counters clean...its rather nice. I'm going to see if I can keep it that way, for at least a week!
I cooked a dinner consisting of a salad, breadsticks, stuffed manicotti, and red velvet cake. It was very yummy if I might say so myself! We had a nice evening, the dog didn't even bark too much and the cat stayed off the countertops!
Sunday, we actually made it to Sunday School, only 15 minutes late! We then bummed food from Mother in law. Visited my parents a little bit, then I went to the movies with Mother and Grandmother in law. We went to see "September Dawn". It is about the Mountain Meadows Massacre. You can Google that for more information. To put it very basic, the Mormoms killed everyone in the wagon train that was from Arkansas/Missouri (with the exception of the very tiny children). It was a very good movie. Too bad it will be oppressed since it might offend someone. I'd like to blog some more on that whole thing , but I might later, my mind is not 100% here at the moment and it would be an incoherent mess of offenses and generalizations, I'm sure.
Sunday night we feasted on Arbys (their Italian Sub sandwiches are pretty good). And watched "The Hulk". It was awful. They ruined what could have been a semi-entertaining story. Yes, I know its been out for a while but I am behind the times and have never seen it. The CGI was awful. The weird camera angle, split screen shots was dumb. I was very disappointed.
Up early this AM, for a doctors appointment. For those of you who know whats going on...I am now on drugs that are guaranteed to make me an emotional wreck but hopefully will give the desired end result. So please have pity on me in the coming week. As well as have pity on Klay for putting up with me!
Now to catch up...its a full moon tomorrow and its starting early. You may find this an old wives tale but trust me, it DOES make a difference!

I am a hypocrite. Every time someone tells me they are pregnant I tell them how happy I am for them and give the complimentary congratulations. Then I go home and cry myself to sleep. I AM happy for these people, however it makes me sad at the same time. Why not me? What have I done wrong? Why do girls get pregnant by "accident" curse the fact they are pregnant, say that they "hope they lose it" but for the life of me I cant get pregnant. I know God's plan is the right plan and everything works to his infinite wisdom, but honestly I cant see the purpose of this plan. I cant see the point in Godly Christian women who long for a baby being denied that blessing. Granted, I haven't tried as long as many women. And hopefully I will get pregnant eventually. I cant imagine the pain of women who have tried (are trying) for years. My heart goes out to them because 5 months is taking a toll on me.
Another related issue, there are something that I tire of hearing. So for the record please try to refrain from telling me these things (and probably refrain from telling any trying to get pregnant woman, or any woman you aren't sure if is trying or not)
* Enjoy your life without a baby, a baby changes everything. Do you think I am not aware of this? Do you think I haven't thought about the changes and are ready to undertake them?
* Relax, when you aren't trying that's when it will happen. Really? 'Cause all those years I didn't try I didn't get pregnant. Just because all the teen mothers and unplanned pregnancies come from lack of trying. Yeah, you are right. I'm just going to start using birth control since according to this statement that'll get me pregnant.
* Oh, when you get to thinking you want a baby, come hang around my kids, it'll change your mind. Umm...no it wont. Those are your kids. And if they are wild and misbehaved it is YOUR fault. Besides, there is a good chance that I may actually LIKE kids, therefore any amount of hanging around them only makes me want it more.
* Oh, you'll get pregnant eventually. Oh I am so glad you can see into the future and know in your infinite wisdom that I will be able to have children. I really appreciate it.
* So when are you gonna have kids? Well I was planning to be 5 months pregnant by now. Hopefully, 9 months from now. Or do you really want me to say, oh, I thought I'd try for three years first....
I could go on but thats a good list. Please think before you speak. I want to say that I in no way want any of my pregnant friends or my friends with babies to think that I am downing them. I am truly happy for your blessings. I just hope for my own one day. It just seems sometimes like no one understands this. Then I feel bad in ways for even posting this because I know some women that will read this have tried lots longer than I have at this point. This is my battle. If you think of it pray for us.....

I got my glasses, well they are ordered.
Here is what they look like!
Okay, no not really, I'm not half that daring. But they are pink They are actually really cute. I cant find a pic of them online but they are rectangularish and metal No not frumpy weirdo pink, a cute pink. They are kinda two tone. Hard to describe, but the lady told me they looked really cute. They should be in in about a week.
Also, I am participating in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund (JDRF) walk. Our pastor's granddaughter as well as one of my good friends suffer from Type 1 diabetes. If you would like to donate you may do so online. You can check out my page HERE. And if you cant donate, your prayers are appreciated. One for all those afflicted with Type 1 diabetes and their families. And two, that at girl with a bum foot can walk!! :-)

I need advice....
Due to my lack of contact care and the desire to be "different" I am going to go back to glasses (until I get bored or want to do something very active). Any "tips" on how to pick some cool ones? Everyone who wears glasses have these nifty looking ones and I always look frumpy and geeky. Help me pick some cool ones.
Also...I love wearing sunglasses cause the sun hurts my eyes. How much do prescription sunglasses cost? Are they "worth it"? Or do I just suck it up? Maybe I am being swayed by the fact that its very sunny and 106degrees so I feel I must have sunglasses.
BTW..I have until Monday to decide. Feel free to post links of glasses that you think would look good on little ole me. I wonder if Klay would strangle me if I picked out pink ones???
