Ahhh, Sunday, I love you!

Finally. One day to just relax and do nothing, not go anywhere and see no one. After the week I've had, I welcome this day! Normally, I would be going insane not doing anything, but ot today.

Last week I ran like crazy (paying bills, helping with the new house, working). Friday night I had a party, what we like to call a "Ladies Night Out." There was a consultant from Premiere Jewelry, Mary Kay, and me with Pampered Chef. It was a very interesting and fun experience! Saturday, I worked a booth to promote my business at a community event (lots of vendor booths, food, music and games for kids), then Curtis and I walked around and enjoyed the event afterwards. We had a lot of fun and it was great business opportunity for me! I managed to book 5 Cooking Shows and I have 1 possible recruit!

Everything is going really well and I'm loving it. I'm also loving one day to spend with just my husband, who has been working so hard!

TTC: I have no idea what my body is doing. Apparently I've ovulated (9dpo today) but for some reason I just have this feeling... I'm sure it is all in my head and wishful thinking, but I guess we will find out in the next couple days. I'm ready to travel a new road...

That's pretty much how I'm feeling right now. I have 9 days til my trip to Texas and 14 days until we move into our house. The house is a disaster, I haven't packed a thing and I have a ton of work to do. I'm excited to actually have something to do but I've just overbooked myself this month, between Cooking Shows and all the stuff in my personal life. I think I just need to better manage my time over the next couple weeks!

TTC Update: I had my annual exam yesterday and the doc suggested that we try Clomid for a few cycles to see if that helps. I am a little leery about this because since it's an OB office, they don't do any monitoring for Clomid cycles and that worries me a little bit, with the risks of Clomid. However, it's our only option for help since our new insurance covers NO IF treatments or meds. If we don't do this, we just keep trying on our own, charting and the trusty CBEFM. I haven't decided yet what to do... I'm going to think it over through this cycle and do some more research.

Everything is going pretty well... much more smoothly these days. I'm just ready to get through these next 2 weeks so I don't feel so overwhelmed!

What a weekend!

This weekend has been insane and it's only Saturday night. We have had a lot of fun but everyone is worn out. Yesterday Curtis and I ran some errands and went birthday shopping for Clay (who turns 8 tomorrow) then we picked the boys up from their mom. From there, we went straight to the County Fair... 5 hours and a small fortune later, we were all faired out.

Today was Clay's birthday party so again, lots more running. He had a great party, got a lot of new toys and clothes (which he wasn't real thrilled about lol).

Curtis has to go back to work tomorrow and the kids go back to their moms, which means it's time for me to clean house and start packing. Big fun!
Here are a few pics from the weekend:

Well, that looks much better!

First, I owe a HUGE thank-you to the ladies who helped me with blog remodel. It looks so much better!! Maybe, just maybe, this revamp will help me be a better poster! Be sure to check out all the new features and grab my button!

So... here's what's new with us. I have been VERY busy with my new business (that's the way I like it!) and I still say I LOVE The Pampered Chef! I am gettings tons of free products and having a blast meeting new people. Tomorrow, I will be working a booth at the county fair so hopefully I can get some new contacts and fill in some more dates on my already full calendar!

We move into our new house on October 5th and I am sooo excited! If only I could find the time to pack between birthday parties, Cooking Shows, and a trip to Texas coming up. I should be fine though... after this week, I'll be packing during the week and working weekends.

Clay turns 8 on Sunday, which just seems insane to me. He was 3 when Curtis and I met and has grown so much. We are having his party on Saturday so that should be fun :)

Curtis is still enjoying his job, though he's exhausted! We are getting in a pretty good routine and things are going really well. The company even paid for us to have dinner at a Hibachi grill tonight! It was us, about 12 other roughnecks, 1 other woman and a baby... I'm glad I didn't have to pick up that tab! lol

Ok well it's bedtime! Early day tomorrow... sorry this was so long! Once I become a better blogger, I will have less to update at once! Much love!
