I Declare War...

... against my body. Apparently, it has already begun fighting me.

What now, you may ask. My body has always been really messed up; at least fertility wise. I know you are thinking, but you have a baby. Yes, I do. Obviously, my body works like it should from time to time. At this point, I'm just grateful that the breasts got the whole producing milk memo, and made good on it.

I have had irregular cycles my entire life. Well, ever since I started having cycles. I was hoping that having a baby would give it a good kick in the arse, and it would realize that there should be some pattern to its madness. Apparently, that pattern is no pattern. That is a pattern, right? Granted, I am still breastfeeding, so that probably has some to do with this whole "where is Aunt Flo" thing, but seriously. Body you suck!

Dear Body/Brain/Hormones,

I detest you. Can all three of you get together and squash whatever it is that is obviously causing a rift in your relationship? Seriously. Enough of all of this.

Body and Brain keep gearing up to ovulate, but hormones where are you? Obviously, you are not all there or Aunt Flo would be showing up from time to time. Here I am on day 68 or 69. I keep having horrible O pains, but no O. Heck, I don't care if I O or not this cycle; it isn't like we are trying to conceive right now. I just am tired of being bloated and the little pains that accompany all of that fun stuff.

So, please, all three of you... get together, have a good talking over, and figure it out. I would like for this situation to be remedied in the somewhat near future. Ideally, before we decide to try to have another baby. I would like all three of you on your best behavior, and working together before then. Then I would be so thankful and that in turn would make my life so much easier to try to pinpoint fertile/infertile days down the road.

Your Hostess

She Does Exist!

*Other possible title: At least one of us has a face!

So I'm at work, waiting on work to come in. I'm going through my computer, and I come across pictures of mini-me (aka Alice). Most of these are old (as in 3 or 4 months old...which is pretty old when talking about an 8 month old!). I am waiting on a few videos to come through in my email and then I may also post a few videos.

And yes, it is the same baby in all of the pictures. She is a camo-baby! Sometimes she looks like me, sometimes she looks like Sean, and other times she looks like a mixture of both of us! Yes, my baby is a clever multi-tasker already *wink*

Without further ado...the cuteness that is my baby!

Taking after her Daddy... working on her "lion".

Last Monday we were on a stroll in the yard to feed the animals. Right after this picture was taken, the hat came off!

Here we have the picture I took around Christmas time.

I wish I had skin like this! (I think this is the oldest picture)

Laughing at mommy doing some household chore!

Obviously, black is not slimming! Propped up pretty in her Christmas dress!

Walks are fun!

Yeah, that's right... I'm sitting all by myself. Well, almost.

Guess what I did?!

Well, I obviously haven't worked on getting my blog to look any better. I tried to do a new background, but I am html illiterate (apparently) and now my blog is about as boring as conceivably possible.

I also, have not posted any pictures. I promise, we do have faces and bodies. LOL! Those will be coming soon. Tomorrow, if I can get Lil' Bit down for a nap!

What I did do...ready? I went and auditioned for Wheel of Fortune!

It was a lot of fun (if you call standing around, barely moving for 5-6 hours; and then walking over a mile back to my car, but I am impatient and was tired of "waiting" so I hoofed it to my car instead of waiting for a shuttle bus. Oh and I almost did a face plant on the escalator! A Public Service Announcement: It is NOT a good idea to try to make a call while getting on the down escalator-my left heel caught the step behind me and I B.A.R.E.L.Y managed to not tumble all the way down! Plus I have a phobia of escalators, so I'm surprised myself that I even attempted such a ridiculous feat!!!), but alas, I was not chosen to go up on stage and do a mock round. I do still have a chance to get called back when they do the second auditions in about a month. So fingers crossed! I will, of course, let you all know when I am going back for the second round of auditions! Positive thinking!!!

First Steps!!!

Yep, Alice took her first steps tonight! I was picking her up at the sitters, and she was so excited to see me (I LOVE IT!) and to our amazement, took 2 (almost 3) steps towards me, before dropping down and making a mad dash crawling. I will attempt to get a video of her soon... it is just difficult to try to catch. I never know when she will do it! My baby is growing up too quickly!

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Today would be a good day to lay on the couch and watch movies. It is pretty nasty outside. Of course, this is typical April weather for Indiana, but I think I got spoiled from the 80+ degree weather the past few days (which were record setting-gotta love global warming!).

I really don't want to take Alice out in this,but we HAVE to go to the bank and run a few errands. And I really want to curl up on the couch and watch movies, but my house is a complete wreck... so I will be cleaning and doing laundry, since tomorrow is filled with traveling and family stuff.

Check back later. I plan to update on Alice and other goings on.

Just a Vent

*or Because I Can

I know I need to update on what has been going on (A LOT), but I just have a little vent I need to get out. And since I can't vent (apparently) on Facebook, without a bunch of "friends" ripping in to me, well here we are...

When you ask a question on Facebook (or another social networking site), wouldn't the appropriate response be to answer that question? You know... instead of ripping in to the person for asking it. I don't care whether you feel I'm right in asking the question or not; you may disregard my comment and make none of your own. I didn't ask my question and then ask if you thought I was the Devil's Spawn for asking it. I also didn't ask whether you thought I would get fired for posting that comment (and NO-I'm not that intellectually inept to keep my profile open for all to see... FB has settings you know).

Well, I suppose you are probably wondering what I asked (it has since been deleted-as well as a few "friends"). You will have to wait until I have more time (I'm on break at work) and I will explain more. Though I will say, that this vent is about two separate updates on my part and there corresponding comments.

Til then...
