I really need to blog more instead of just reading other people's blogs!! So it has been about a month since I last blogged I see! Things are going as well as can be expected with only having one solid income! I am SO EXCITED because C is going back to school in one month! He got school payed for through some Federal Trade Act, and we couldn't be happier! He has two years left to finish his Computer Information Systems degree. I am so hoping the economy has turned around by then and that he will have no trouble finding a job he loves! He is still able to collect unemployment for about another year, so we are putting that money into our savings account. We have a good little nest egg built up since he has been off work for the past 6 months. I am so thankful to be a nurse right now and have such great job security! That is one of the main reasons I went into nursing, along with the fact that I love helping people!
So the beginning of this month we moved into a smaller 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment and we really like it. It is the perfect size for us, even if we did have a child in the near future! Ever since I had the miscarriage in March & C lost his job, we put TTC on hold. Now that he is going back to school but still able to have a pretty good income * and savings account* we plan on TTC again! This past cycle we didn't use any birth control methods, but it did not end with a BFP! Today is CD1 (cycle day 1)! This cycle I plan on using OPK's again, that is how I got my last BFP! I charted my BBT for a few months, but I have to get up at 3:45am for work, and I only work 3 days a week (12.5 hour shifts) so I REALLY don't want to wake up that early on my days off just to take my temperature! We will see how this next cycle goes!
I am really looking forward to October 8-19th because I am going back to Indiana to visit with family and friends!! C's brother is getting married so it is a great excuse to go back home!! I CANNOT wait to see my 2 year old twin nephews, my mom, my BFF, and the rest of my family! my SIL keeps posting pictures on Facebook and I can't believe how much I am missing out on! I am going to spoil them rotten when I go back!!!!
Well this was a whole lot of rambling....what can I say, today was my 2nd out of 3 12 hour workdays and it was HELL. Pure craziness....I guess that is what you get when you are the ONLY nurse for an assisted living/alzheimers facility that houses roughly 100 people!
