A Fun Few Days...

Hubby and I had a great time on our little trip to DL and San Diego.  We actually were gone til late Thursday and usually make shorter trips, so it was nice to feel like we had more time together.  Rode Star Tours this time and loved it! Made up for last time since I missed out.  Met up with my best friend and her family back at the Happiest place on Earth on Thursday.  Such a fun trip!

Sea World was a major sunburn and a great Cookie Monster puppet (I love puppets!)  I don't think I have ever been there.  The animal lover in me feels a bit sad for those huge majestic creatures in the small tanks (for their size) but I hope it inspires more people to take action and be kind(er) to our world and it's creatures.  But I must say, I always love the pet shows and the sea lion shows....amazing and fun to see!

With some performers after a show...neat!  

So Hubby left early this morning for New Jersey and is gone til Wednesday afternoon. It's time for the Halloween season to officially begin which means starting now I will see less and less of him over the next few months. He owns and operates Halloween stores (you know the one with the big, ugly skeleton guy) so he's really, really busy for a few months and then I get him back (hee hee).  This is the perfect child care situation for us....can't wait to make that part a reality.

Since our decision to do our next FET I am already feeling anxious as of this weekend. And since I have to go to my first consult alone  (ever) on Wednesday (only time available) I'm feeling nervous.  I have some questions and I am not sure if I need more tests done or not.  I mean I do think this is our last try unless our Dr. won't transfer the 3 embryos we have left.  I wish there was a book I could read that would just tell me what to do.....see if my twin should just try to surrogate, not try at all, try, hold off on all adoption stuff....blah! As of now I am going for it!! Meds are being ordered tomorrow.  I need to schedule acupuncture sessions again and start back on that diet. It's awful.....I am doubtful, but am still hopeful enough to try again.

For now, I need to go to bed. I always have some extra trouble falling asleep when Hubby isn't here.
Thank goodness for dog snuggles.  I'm up early to have breakfast with an old friend visiting from Idaho....can't wait!


  1. Aww...this post makes me miss home (I'm from So Cal and live in NJ where your hubby is now!). Kudos to you for taking Wednesday's appointment on by can totally do it. I, too, wish there was a manual for IF. I always went with my gut, and it seems to have worked (well....I never had a bio baby, but it feels AWESOME to move on to adoption). Much luck to you!

  2. should come check out all the fun changes at DL....fantastic...and then I'll join you. :o) I think if I just keep putting one foot in front of the other (and remember to breathe!) I'll be okay for now. There's such a part of me that is ready to move on past this craziness, but then I don't want the doubt hanging over my head.....will that ever go away!?! I forgot to mention we have our first homestudy on Wednesday...I'm excited! I'm so pleased with everything we have accomplished towards adoption already and it's only just begun!

  3. Glad you had a fun few days! I always love the animal shows too - but also feel sad for those beautiful creatures - that should be out in the wild enjoying all that life has to offer. We went to the zoo the other day and I felt sad for those animals! All I can do it blame it on hormones.
    I hope you get some answers from your Dr. appointment - I only had to go alone a time or two and I hated it but that was usually for and IUI. Hopefully you will be able to find peace with whatever your final decision is - and I agree with Maria...go with your gut, it usually is right. Good luck!!

  4. I'm jealous that you are having so much fun!!! Makes me miss my home state!!!

    I'm excited for you to start your next FET, Kelli!! Have faith in the works!! I'll be following your progress and hoping this cycle is THE ONE for you!!!!

  5. Glad you had a fun vacation!
    Good luck on your FET! I know what you mean about it being so hard to know what the right path to take is, but you sound pretty confident about your decision. And glad you still have some hope can be so hard to hold onto that hope...
    Fingers crossed this cycle is the one!

  6. Sorry that I've been so long in commenting... and sorry to hear that your cycle didn't work out. I know how hard it can be and wish that we all had a crystal ball to see what was ahead of us... it might make this roller-coaster a little more bearable. Love to you always xoxo

  7. Thanks ladies....hugs to you all!
