Yeah defintely and I saw him being interviewed his voice is soo sexy! So do you reckon Lennon is better and do you think it goes with our surname Gladstone or do the styles of those two names clash? Possible middle name Xavier as this is the surname of all of my spanish ancestors so it has meaning plus it's cool! So it would be Lennon Xavier Gladstone (Leni for a nn) x
ps See your temp still isn't up bet you're glad you had a rest last night! If I was you I'd just do it tonight and every other night now until it rises but I know I would struggle! Good luck x x
So nice to hear from you! We were about to send out a search party lol! I just figured you were really busy with new house business, and hoping you werenít in depression mode due to those stupid stupid people that let you go.
I think the intention is to move over permanently to this thread now.
Iím sorry to hear of all the stress with your new house., but Iím sure it will all be worth it when all is said and done!! Iím so excited for you. FX that it closes next week!
I know what you mean of stress and arguing. DH has been kind of grumpy this last week alsoÖ.but I know itís due to the money heís spending on the front yard and shutters. Heís kind of, hummmm, how shall I say it? TIGHT! And thatís a lot of cash to spend all at onceÖI totally understand and just let him vent, I let things slide, SS and I just look at each other and give each other ďthe lookĒ LOL!
I hope your DH is successful in quitting smoking-the ecigs are a step in the right direction!!
I know it was hard to hear all that DH said, but Iím glad he shared his feelings with you. My DH is the same way (open, honest, speaks his mind even when its inappropriate sometimes, although I wonder if sometimes I am just too sensitive?) but heís not that way in regards to his feelings..I have to yank those out of him sometimes, I try not to because then I cry and I hate crying!!!
FX that you will get pg soon and DH will find his motivation again to be a better person. Motivation is a strong driver of behaviors, thatís for sure! As a matter of fact, now I'm remembering that when my brother had his first child, he stopped smoking too! He was a social smoker, but quit when my nephew was born.
That stinks about the wasted time, energy, and fuel! FX that you get this work at home position, because like you said, it would be even better WHEN you get your rainbow!! I think last night was the babymaker.......
You and vegas motivated to buy some ICís from ebay this week, 50 opkís and 20 hptís for $9.99. They should arrive by tomorrow, a few days before Iíll need them. I still have about 15-20 Dollar Store opkís but will use them along with the ICís when they start getting darker.
Good news! DH just texted me pix of our front yard--concrete has been poured, just waiting for it to set a lil more, then the colored concrete stamping will begin!! SO excited to get home and see results in person. We are going to the mountains this weekend so I prob wont be able to respond until Monday, but Iíll def be stalking the thread until then!
I'm hoping it closes ASAP too. I'm so ready to move! I want to get packing out of the way but I just know whatever I pack I'm going to end up needing, even if it's something I never use. Things always seem to work out that way!
My OH is stressing about money, too, along with everything else. He's been having to take more time off from work than he likes because of all the house stuff, he had some problems with his car, I missed some work (unpaid booooo) because of renovations in the office... Plus the house stuff... little things are getting to him pretty bad! He was in a good mood yesterday, though, so maybe things are looking up (FX!)
OH is better at expressing his feelings when they're anger, frustration, or happy rather than sad. He doesn't want to upset me with his sadness, I think. I was glad he was comfortable doing it this past time, I think he really needed to get it out, January is a tough month for him between it being a new year, taxes, the day his dad died (and his dad's bday), throw in the house stuff, etc.
I was so glad I got the cheapies from eBay... saved so much money! Especially since I have a POAS addiction. Technically these aren't POAS strips... more like PIAC&DSI (pee in a cup & dip stick in, lol), but still.
Hope the concrete comes out as you wanted! No more muddy shoes!
I understand your reasoning for wanting to donate to your uncle, I can't imagine having to make that decision myself. I would find it hard enough donating to someone who was grateful and not... well, a jerk. You're an amazing person for putting so much thought into it, even after how he has treated you and your family.

Make sure to get in a couple more of those sessions to seal the deal for this month! If you caught the start of your surge today you still have a couple more days of fun!
I'm absolutely shattered tonight, coming down with a cold, luckily I have the day off tomorrow so I can have a lazy morning
Stef, good luck with getting your house closed off. We move on the 28th February, slightly later date than planned but the main thing is, the house is ours now! It's off the market and just sitting there waiting for us! So exciting! x
Hehe. Special kisses still makes me giggle! I love his name too, he hates it. I'm feeling a little miserable today, too, but I think it's just allergies. I came down with what I think was the flu a couple weeks ago, it was horrible! With all the vitamins and stuff I'm taking I got over it a lot more quickly than everyone else I know that have gotten it, though! I'm so happy for you with the house!
On the names, I love both Flynn and Lennon. I can see Flynn turning into a Flinstone reference though - a combo of it and your surname - Flynnstone.

Cupcakes are one of my favorite things ever, lol. I hope you were able to get some sleep! You bribing Charlotte with pink ice cream made me giggle!

As for you oh, that is great that he is so open with you and was able to express those kinds of emotions and let you see him cry. Also, sorry the closing got delayed. Hopefully once the paper work is done things will go smoothly! Sorry about your wasted time with that interview, hopefully the one tomorrow will go well. Are you guys just moving houses in St. Louis or moving cities? Lastly, I love your cat's name, Capone!!
FX to your o'ing! Sometimes his openness is annoying, lol, because he says EVERYTHING that is on his mind. He's even said it bothers him sometimes that he can't keep certain things to himself. We're moving to the St. Charles area - the house is in St. Peters, about 3 minute from the O'Fallon line (and from the house OH grew up in with his dad before his dad died). OH chose Capone - he has a thing for mafia history, Al Capone is his favorite historical person, lol. It took us a good 3 weeks or so to choose a name, we kept playing with different ones and nothing fit until Capone!
I definitely o'd yesterday! If I hadn't had the OPKs I might not have known, I would have attributed it to gas cramps, but in combo with the positive OPK, I know it was o. Normally I can tell easily with the way the cramping feels (last time it was sharp pains in one side and I felt nauseous). Since the mc... everything still feels off! Wonder if it will ever be back to as it used to be, where I was in touch with everything going on.
So we definitely caught good timing, at least! BD'd late Wednesday night, o'd yesterday, BD'd late last night. FX! I soooo want to give OH a positive digi on vday. I also got him What I Love About You. It's a journal type book where you fill in the blanks on questions it asks about your relationship and love, etc. I got it in December with the intention of taking my time filling it out... fail! Now I'm down to 13 days, eek! I also got a sexy outfit for vday night
Oh yeah... the work at home job I was supposed to interview for today. I got an email from the woman yesterday saying she decided she needs to hire someone local to her (she's in CA), but wants to keep me in mind if she ever needs more help because she likes my experience. I'm upset about it, booooo. Was really looking forward to this one! I did quote that other company that interviewed me on redoing their website, so hopefully when the manager talks to the owner he'll agree.
Hey Stef, congratulations on perfectly timing the bd'ing! I've got a good feeling for you! Fx! Thanks for the input on the name too, I think the Flintstone thing would come up if I used the middle name Stephen especially with the st directly after the Flynn if you get me! Angel, I meant to say I think Carter and Kinsley and Carter and Lucas are both ADORABLE! I've never heard of that girl's name before but I love it! Loving Monroe too, very cool! I have also heard Monroe used on boy's too, a little boy called Reuben Monroe but I think it suits a girl better after Marilyn! Can't you just tell baby names are my favourite subject! Right I'm off for Friday night fish and chips! Nom nom! x
Stef~ I am sooo with you! I am a pee-stick-aholicic also!!! lol! I have been going in weekly to get my blood levels tested (paroniod) and I still want to test with a stick! lol! I have a thing going on with my hubby though... We have an old container (a costco size pretzel with peanut butter filling tub) that we are putting all of our change in and in the summer we are going to use to go on a family vacation... everytime I get an urge to test on a stick I have to put the $1 I would have spent at the dollar store in the container! Wow! There is at least $15 alone from me in there!!!!!

We never discussed names for this past baby. Well, we did after the mc, but I'm not sure if we ever really settled on anything as we didn't know the gender. I think all of the names y'all have come up with are great!
OK, so my celebrity crushes are as follows:
Ryan Reynolds (boy next door hot)
Christian Bale (dark and mysterious type)
Chris Cornell (singer for Soundgarden and Audioslave-am I dating myself with this one?)
Johnny Depp (quirky, but totally hot)
Also, I had a "dream" the other night about the character Dexter. Does anyone watch that? Anyone else have a crush more on a character than an actual actor?
Heading out to dinner with dh tonight. It will be nice to have a date night. We get so few of those these days. Hope everyone else is having a great weekend too!
Jasmine- I can't believe it has been 8 weeks also!!! It goes by fast and slow if that makes sense... Lol! Vegas- yes and I love Fred Meyer!!! I live by Olympia. I use to work at the one in tumwater I miss my discount!!!!
Vegas, too much Bding!!! Other than the character I listed I am not sure. I get really into movies and books, so I am sure there have been many!
Sweetmomma, your dad sounds like an amazing man! I also enjoy scrapbooking. I have so much for Carter, I have had to separate it into two books (really need a third) and I would say each book weighs as much as him!! Happy 8 weeks!!!
