Happy Daylight Savings Day

Happy daylight savings day. Don't you love when the time changes? It is always so fun for me to get an extra hour of sleep in the fall and in the spring... well I hardly mind the change because it indicated that school is almost out for the summer! It is only 8:07 am and I have already said things like "omg... it is only 7:30??? wow." Tonight it will get dark earlier and that will be fun too. Here is a nice pic of the sunrise this AM at "only 6:30".

Last night Mr. D. and I took "our" first double dose of clomid. Yes... I know I technically am the one that takes it but he is the one that has to deal with me taking it... so I say "our". Then we can home and carved pumpkins for Halloween... I'll post pictures later. Mr. D. (following our 3 year old tradition) carved a wonderful Disney Princess pumpkin out of a real pumpkin. (His is the great Belle and mine were the cat in the window and one with our names in a very creepy font! Check out our October 20o5 & 2004 archives for more of our traditional pumpkin carvings! Cinderella is one of my favorites!!!) Last year I gave up on using real pumpkins and now use craft pumpkins and a hot wood carving tool to "carve" them. That way all my hours of work can last from year to year... and we now have a collection of 7 intricately carved pumpkins that can be used for years to come. I highly recommend using the craft pumpkins... but the woodcarving tools cost about $35... so the initial expense is higher than buying a real pumpkin.

Today I will try to make a 1:30 yoga class at the gym and then tonight Mr. D. is playing in a "theatre league" bowling tournament for a local theatre... it is a fundraiser. I think it will be fun to go hang out and meet new people since I am pretty "out of the theatre loop" since I haven't acted in a show for like... uhm... five years.

There is a new RESOLVE group forming in my area... the first meeting is on the 2nd. I am thinking about going. What do you girls think? It is sort of scary to put yourself out there as "infertile"... but after 4 years... yes... that "infertile" label fits here. Anyway... should I go? I think I need the "internets" to give me a push.

Gotta go... Mr. D. needs breakfast and is in a big hurry... not sure why.... it is only 8:23.

I too hope that the clomid does the trick! My husband and I are considering adoption, have you and Mr D considered it before? This after 3miscarriages for us, and 30 is approaching, I recieve my results in a 3 weeks from all the testing the obgyn finally did on me, so we are going to continue trying, but if not nothing by 30 we are considering we will be the application process for adoption.

I hope the Clomid does it for you, and that it's not too crazy-making.

As for the Resolve meeting--I would say go. I found that my local group was a good source of support, and a great source of information about local doctors and options. If you hate it, you don't have to go again! But you may be pleasantly surprised.

Those pumpkins are amazing! How cool that you get to keep them after Halloween.

I have to say that my Resolve group is the most incredible group of women. I don't know where I would be without them. We kept on meeting after the official time was up, and they are my lifeline. I would at least try to go. It may be a great thing, and if not at least you tried it out.

As for the RESOLVE...I say go for it. You may really enjoy it and what could it hurt to attend just one meeting?! I'm thinking about ya girl!

Love the pumpkins! My husband loves to carve pumpkins too and we started using the craft pumpkins a couple of years ago to keep all that work fresh. Seems like such a waste to put so much work into something that rots. And if you have coupons they really don't cost any more than a large, real pumpkin. He uses an exacto knife but I'm definitely going to tell him your recommendation about wood carving tools!

Love the pumpkins! We love carving pumpkins too but I have never considered using craft pumpkins...something to think about.

If you are lucky enough to have a local RESOLVE chapter, please take advantage of it. At least you will be able to determine if you want to go to a second, but I think you will gain from the additional networking possibilities.

I wish I had half the pumpkin carving skills you have! Wow!

Yes, go to the meeting. I'm sure you will at least gain something from it. Double dose of Clomid. Yummy!

GOOD LUCK with the clomid challenge, I will keep my fingers crossed for you.

Very cool pumpkins! Those look fantastic.

Regarding the Resolve meeting, I would say go. Joining a Resolve group has really helped me through this infertility rollercoaster. The internet is great because the blog community has helped me so much, but there is something to be said about talking to a real life person about this stuff.

Good luck with Clomid!

Good luck with the clomid. I told my husband about your pumpkins as we where still using fresh. He loved the idea but wondered exactly what kind of wood tools you used. If you wouldn't mind posting what you used I would appreciate it!

I used the craft pumpkins from Michaels... Do NOT use "Funkins" the are hard and don't melt with the tools as well. The tool we also got at Michaels (last year) It is called a CREATIVE VERSA-TOOL made by Walnut Hallow. I use the "hot knife cutting tip... but there are 9 other tips with the tool. Hope this help you with your pumpkins!!!

Thinking of you....

Hope I'm not too late to chime in on RESOLVE, but go. I was in a support group and loooved it. I don't know why more people don't take advantage of it. But it's totally awesome.
