Happy New Years!

HAPPY NEW YEAR KIDS! Hope you are still out there somewhere...

I promise an update soon... but pretty much everything is still the same... I haven't tested yet but with the way my lower back is aching I would expect cd 1 tomorrow on New Years Eve... hopefully that is not a sign....

If you are still out there please post me a line... I am beginning to worry that my lack of posting has lost me some friend... or it may just be that I have started to run out of things to say... so many bloggers have disappeared this year... oh well that is another subject!

HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE... or to at least the two or three that still pop in...


1) Where did you begin 2007?
Hanging out with friends and of course my sweet husband... playing games and eating great food.

2) What was your status on New years day?
Married... teaching high school... excited to direct at "big fancy theatre"... unpregnant... about the same as now.

3) Were you in school (anytime this year)?
yes... every freaking day!!! But at least I get to decide what we do each day... It is good to be the queen.

4) How did you earn your money?
Teaching... directed 2 shows... and actually performed in a show at "big fancy theatre."

5) Did you have to go to the hospital?
Not the hospital... but I did spend a lot of time at the doctor... with my feet in the stirrups!

6) Did you have any encounters with the police?
no... I am pretty boring!

7) Where did you go on holidays?
Orlando and Seaside, Florida

8) What did you purchase that was over $1,000?
Well... my major fertility treatments were running about $800 a month... so there is that... we also went on a 16 day vacation, I got a great new car (a 2007 Hyundai Tucson), and most recently a new washer and dryer....

9) Did you know anybody who got married?
can't remember.. we didn't attend any weddings.

10) Did you know anybody who passed away?
Not besides Pavarotti & Robert Goulette... Mr. D. mourned for days.

12) Did you move anywhere?
no... thank goodness.. we love out home!

13) What concerts/shows did you go to?
We saw a good amount of theatre this year... I finally saw THE LION KING after avoiding it forever. I thought the 5 person Romeo and Juliet I saw was INCREDIBLE... I also really enjoyed The Pillow Man.

15) Are you registered to vote?
I will be when it counts.

16) Who did you want to win Big Brother?
First Eric... but when he got kicked off then the crazy dad with the bitchy daughter... and he did. (I know I am a nerd).

17) Where do you live now?
at my house :)

18) Describe your birthday?
36... on my ACTUAL birthday I was in rehearsals. I got a new supercool bluetooth radio for my car and some time at the Coldwater Creeek Spa!!!! .... Later I had a sweet party with some friends... played Mexican Train... ate cake... the usual.

19) What's one thing you thought you'd never do but did in 2007?
I rode THE HULK roller coaster at Universal Studios all by myself! I got to direct at the Casa Playhouse (that was a full circle kind of thing for me). And... not to be pathetic or depressing... but I did "offically" venture into the world of "assisted reproduction"... which sucks.

20) What has been your favorite moment?
Spending a long beach vacation with my husband... just the two of us!

21) What's something you learned about yourself?
That I am stronger that I thought I was... but that I sometimes need to ask for help.. and that is ok.

22) Any new additions to your family?
No (way to rub it in)... but my bff had her second baby in March.

23.) What was your best month?
June... out of school and on the road!

24.) Any surgeries, and if so, on what?
Not exactly surgeries... more like "proceedures"

25) Who has been your best drinking buddy?

26) Made new friends?

27) New best friend?

28) Favorite Night out?
there were several... hard to choose just one!

29) Did you find love?
More love than I can tell!

30) What was your proudest moment?
Realizing that I COULD direct people over 18! And that I COULD direct my husband!

cd 2...

Well (surprise!) AF arrived on cd 25 for some odd reason. I guess that is a good thing... it saved me 4-6 days of waiting and pushed my next cycle up so it would not mean and iui right at Christmas. Now I have 1 day to decided what I want to do... If we don't skip this month then I need to see my nurse tomorrow for an u/s and start clomid on Thursday... iui would be scheduled for around the 18th. I have to talk to Mr. D. about what he thinks we should do... but I feel like this will be our last iui until we decide what the next step is... possible lap... or moving on to adoption... or something else...

I didn't really feel like thinking of all this right now... but we can't ignore AF... now can we?

Well.. well.. well... look who decided to write a blog after over two weeks! I apologise for the time lapse... but I have been so incredibly busy with school and my moonlighting that I have barely found time to do anything else!

Would you believe that I am still sick??? I am still hacking away and taking cough medicine after a whooping 5 weeks! I started feeling this cold about a week before Halloween!!!!! have been to the doctor twice & done a round of antibiotics! This week I do seem at least to finally be getting a bit better. The doctor thinks it is all allergy related that turned into an upper respiratory and sinus infections since I never ran a fever. So hopefully I am at the tail end of this. I have never been sick for so long in my life!

We had a lovely thanksgiving with my brother, aunt and uncle at my house. I went to Market and got the entire turkey dinner there... all we had to do was cook it for 2 hours and warm all the sides! It was perfect! I felt so stressed about "warming" everything properly that I can't even imagine those of you that cook all this stuff from scratch... Kudos to you... for me it was a big accomplishment to warm up everything right!

On Friday after Thanksgiving (while most of you were shopping) I opened my big kids show of FROSTY THE SNOW.MAN at the theatre I moonlight for. The papers reviewed it and called it a "must see" and "adorable" so I am happy... it runs through December 23... but as for my part as the director I am done... I will see the show a couple more times before it closes (because my hubby is in it) but other than that I am on to the next project.

At school we open our next show on Wednesday... I am the technical director and my co-teacher directed. So I will be in rehearsals all weekend to make sure it is ready to go on Wednesday. So I have another crazy week ahead.

I have no idea when I will Christmas shop... I will probably do what I usually do... knock it all out in one 8 hours shopping and wrapping frenzy. I have no clue what anyone wants (including myself) and I just wish people would give out lists!!!

As for ttc.... basically we have not. I mean not even tried. We were supposed to try right at Thanksgiving but both of us were so busy or so tired or so sick that we didn't. So if there was an egg it was wasted. I am thinking about doing another clomid cycle as soon as AF comes (probably next week) and I am also thinking of skipping another cycle and waiting until January.

So that is it... my last two weeks in a nutshell. I will try to post more often. Thanks for being concerned about me! I still visit your blogs every day... even when I don't have the chance to post! Miss you all!
