Now, we’re getting some where

Every since the move back to Illinois, I have been a bouncing ball of joy! I wake up every morning with the sun on my face, and a clear blue sky. You’d think I’m exaggerating, but I’m not, and that is why I love it so very much here!


Anyway, I had a job interview yesterday for this really awesome position at the local library! I think the interview went so well! I wasn’t as qualified educationally for the position (they wanted someone with a masters), but they liked my experience, so I am hoping that will be enough to carry me through…..I mean, they knew I only had a bachelor’s going into the interview, so it wasn’t a surprise, right? So I will find out next week. I really really really really really want this job, and the interview did go so well! Fingers crossed!

I have another interview tomorrow. It’s not so much as an interview, as it is a proposal pitch. I don’t know how I feel about it yet. It looks like its going to be a lot of hard work and extensive sales, and I am just not in the mood to do that at this point in my life. My goal is to reduce stress, but in this economy, I’ll do what I have to. So I am putting together a marketing plan on how to make this office grow, and pitch it to them tomorrow. ……Still hoping for that Library job!

So exciting news, although I have been busy, its been with all good things! I’ve been taking OPKs ( I think all of us are, lol) and its been very negative the past three weeks….yes, three, so I am running a little behind schedule, but in my defense, I have moved back to IL and had my dog go through surgery last week, two job interviews, and unpacking my house, so really, a week behind isn’t too bad!

Well, today I peed and got my positive OPK! Bright lines! I even did it on a different test, just incase it was a bad one, and there it was! I was so excited, I called the husband up at work and told him not to be to late or to tired!  I am really excited.

My last positive OPK I believe was in October, when I was on vacation. We did the deed (I really should call it something more romantic), but were unsuccessful, and I think its because I was still working all three shifts in that horrible, awful, nightmarish city! The positives before that, I was hopeful, but again, with my schedule, I missed it. Now December, by counting, we did the deed on the perfect day, and I still missed it. A little disheartening. Now that I am back home, I think I’m very positive.

I’m also excited, because if nothing else, in two weeks I’ll start fertility treatment, and be working with an awesome Dr, who is going to be with me every step of the way.

My heart is so full of positive joy, I’ve forgotten what it’s felt like to be this at peace. Have I mentioned how much I love being in my home?! It’s such a perfect and beautiful home. I have been on Pinterest getting ideas how I am going to transform one of the rooms into the perfect babies room. I know I’m getting a head of myself, and I don’t want to be too disheartened, but I want to stay positive!

I told my husband that I have to keep my eye on the goal! I have to do believe that I can get pregnant! So I changed my desktop background to a picture to sperm attacking an egg. Ha, if nothing more, I get a good giggle every time I log in.


So. Here is to hoping that being back home, the acupuncture, and Karma are on my side this month!


Till then,
Mrs. M
