Who, huh, what, oh yeah I am here....

Well things are still tight here, meaning that work is basically not approving of me reading blogs during lunch (especially if they accidently splill over my lunch time). So that's the jist of why I haven't read or blogged much at all.

Moving is still stressing me out, at least I've stopped dreaming about being sold to a Russian prostitution ring by my co-worker and her husband! Our car is not here yet but our Simon is promising me that it will be here by the end of this week. I will believe it once I see the car for my very own. We are still trying to find a wine dealer who will ship our wine stock. Any old Germany based folks know of one? Lastly our broken chair, that was replaced by the wrong chair is actually going to be fixed. They have the broken chair and will replace the arm on it, then bring it to us and replace the cushion so it matches. At least one thing is resolved.

On a really happy note, I belong to a military spouse board. This month I participated in a Secret Santa type of exchange and got some really cool stuff! My SS gave me stickers for scrapbooking that included doggie ones, karate ones and military ones. I also got a mini-scrapbook that she HAND MADE in my favourite colour - blue. Lastly I got a book that I just read about called Taking Charge of Your Fertility. We apparently aren't getting the timing right on the whole conception thing and keep missing the "window." I was hoping reading on how to track the whole thing might make me think I can actually do something to lend a hand to having junior during our expected time frame.

So I get to finish my finals this week and then read about how to track my ovulation - oh boy biology. Sounds like oodles of fun!

"TCOYF" is an awesome book and I would recommend it to any woman - regardless of whether they are trying TO get pregnant or trying to AVOID getting pregnant. My fingers are still crossed!

As for moving...DON"T remind me! I"m still trying to get over nightmares of our move here and now I have to do it all again.

Hey there, you. I hear ya about eliminating the uh, *cough* stuff (mmmmmmmmmm coffee) in the name of trying to get preggo. I'm doing the same over here. We're in the 2-week waiting window, keep your fingers crossed. How you guys doing?

I started taking Vitex. Month 1. I am also charting at www.fertilityfriend.com.

Baby mojo!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A few weeks ago some guys in my bf's unit were talking about shipping wine back to the States, and one of them said he had done it himself last time, just wrapping every bottle in bubble wrap and shipping it with the household goods. And that everything arrived fine. So, you might want to consider that. Also lining the entire carton with a trash bag, just in case.

Good luck with the window!

I charted and used an ovulation detector (with a smiley face).
