I'm not the only one who sees this every month, right? ūüėČ

It made me laugh. ¬†Especially after the older lady at the hair salon told me I looked like a young Doris Day… It’s been one of those weird days… ¬†‚̧

I applied to graduate school yesterday. ¬†Yikes! ¬†I wasn’t planning on getting my master’s so soon, but hey, why not?

Square One

3 Jan

Did you know that sperm take around 90 days to develop completely? ¬†Did you also know that illness or high fevers can dramatically alter a man’s sperm count? ¬†Neither did we.

A week or two before Jeremy’s first test, we both had a horrendous flu. ¬†High fevers, body aches.. the works.

Sooooo, Dr. R wants Jeremy’s test repeated the first week of April. ¬†Which means, we’re back to square one. ¬†We have no idea what’s wrong and we’re back to waiting. ¬†I am thankful that there’s a good possibility Jeremy is fine. ¬†He didn’t need that hanging over him.

Two weeks from tomorrow, I’ll see my doctor and hopefully we’ll get more answers.

I’m taking my Christmas decorations down today. ¬†I planned out my garden the other night. ¬†I’m working on some stranded socks. ¬†I finished Might Be Our Power last night. ¬†Focus.

Meanwhile, Bella has to visit the vet in the morning. ¬†She’s got a urinary tract infection. ūüė¶ Poor kitty.



Urology, Socks, and Books.

2 Jan

I’m so nervous about tomorrow. ¬†We have an appointment with the urologist at 8:40 am. ¬†I’m nervous about meeting someone new and letting him into this intimate situation, about what he’ll have to tell us, and I am terrified about what he won’t be able to tell us, that after everything we’ll still be in the dark. ¬†I don’t like not having a plan. ¬†At the very least, I’m hoping we leave his office with some kind of plan in mind.

I’m trying to focus on other things though.

I’ve been occupying myself today with finishing Jeremy’s Christmas socks:

Don't you love my fluffy prop? ūüėČ

They were mostly done, I just needed to add the heels.

I’ve also spent the past couple days reading. ¬†I finished Dawn by Octavia Butler. ¬†She’s the author of my all time favorite novel, Kindred, so I thought I would give her Xenogenesis series a try. ¬†Would I¬†recommend¬†¬†it? ¬†Welllll… Do you like really out there sci-fi? ¬†No? ¬†Don’t even think about picking it up then. ¬†I’m going to read the next to books in the series because I want to know what happens, but I’m really on the fence as to whether or not I liked it or just thought it was weird. ¬†I’ll keep you updated.

I’m also 3/4 of the way through Mighty Be Our Powers by Leymah Gbowee. ¬†It’s a memoir about the¬†Liberian¬†War and how Gbowee’s women’s groups helped bring peace to the country. ¬†I don’t normally care for memoirs, but this book is extremely well written. ¬†She really brings you into the story and has you both rooting for her and crying with her. ¬†I’d highly recommend it. ¬†It helps me keep my problems in perspective.

I’m nervous and scared. ¬†I’m both dreading and welcoming tomorrow. ¬†It’s a means to an end, the beginning of the end… etc… ¬†It’s going to get the ball we’ve been avoiding rolling. ¬†Whether we like or not, the ball is going to start rolling.
