Wow, I really sucked at blogging for the last two months. I'd like to say that it's because exciting and magical things are happening, but that is not the case. I think it's a combination of being too busy, lazy, and overall blah to do any blogging.
My life is boring at the moment. Work is the same, although in October, I secured myself a monthly performance-based bonus, then starting this month, I also scored a little hourly bump as well, so that was nice. It definitely makes you feel appreciated and important when co-workers complain to management that they need a raise and are handed a print-out of job listings... yes, that happened.
Ducky is doing amazingly well. She says so many words and almost full sentences. She loves coloring and painting and all things art. She is very demanding about pre-bedtime cuddles and gets more opinionated and yet adorable every day.
Hubbs started a new job, it's night shift, and long hours, so I only see him for a few minutes before I go to work, when he gets home to go to bed. We do usually have time to have dinner together as a family though before he heads out, so that's nice. He wanted to complain about the hours, but getting a paycheck for one week's work that is the equivalent of mine for 2 weeks makes it worth it in his eyes.
I was going to go back to school, but there's a small snafu with my grant and I'm not sure that's going to happen anymore. I'm registered for classes, they start in about 2 weeks, but the powers that be are still deciding. Hopefully I should hear by next week.
Now that it's been the medically recommended time-frame, we are TTC again. It's surprisingly difficult timing things appropriately when you don't see each other that often. Coming up on CD 30 now. Somewhere in the next 2-5 days AF will probably show up and shatter my dreams until next cycle when we start all over again. I haven't been temping regularly, but will try to be more diligent. I'd forgotten how frustrating everything was. Trying to guess when the big O happens and was that twinge possibly something good? My cycles and everything definitely seem different from having my C-Section. I'm not sure if that's common or not, but things definitely seem out of whack. It'll take a few more months I'm sure before I know what's normal and what's not.
