Stig arrived today!!!

I received seriously the BEST.PACKAGE.EVER from Clara today via her owl Stig!!!!! It was heavy and there were lots of little packages jam packed in it! I can't even begin to describe it all and give the proper credit to Clara!

Here is Bella, my dark arts detector at work. She checked everything very well!

As you can see, it all must have been ok because now she's taking a nap!

Here is a picture of everything, I will detail what was in it at the end!

And a package for our baby!! How thoughtful!

This is the cute little package for our little one. Jackson will love them! I love the socks and the hat and can't wait to use them, but that owl bib is just something else! I just fell completely in love with it! I can't wait until he is here and can use these for him!

Busy week!!!!

Today my younger brother got married! We are so happy for him! I have been so busy the past 3 days! I left work early on Thursday to come homme and bake the cakes, I went through 18 cake mixes. Then yesterday I decorated 5 tiers of cake. 2 for the grooms cake served at the rehearsal, then a 3 tier that was served today at the wedding. And on top of all of this, we babysat our 8 month old niece overnight last night! I have never had a baby overnight before, that was fun, she's so snuggly when she's sleepy!!!!

Bad blogger!

I can't believe I haven't posted in 2 weeks, I'm such a bad blogger and student! My muggle school is winding down, so I have been extremely busy with graduations, finals and my younger brother getting married! I have also been working on something for my spoilee! Surprises around every corner!

As I sit here typing in my bed, my pups is looking at me but can barely keep her eyes open! She wants to watch, but she's had a busy day sniffing out Dark Arts. Not that we've seen anything, she's just always on the sniff-out! We are very lucky to have her.

Baby things happening!

Today Mr. McGonagall and I with the assistance of our Dark Arts detector, Bella, put together our crib for baby McGonagall! We hadn't planned on it, but we were cleaning house and decided to move the box into the baby room and when we did, we just decided to put it together! It's pretty cool, now we just can't wait to know what color of bedding to get for it.

Spell for allergies?!

I don't know about anywhere else in the wizarding world, but here where I'm at we are having a record setting year for pollen count. I have had a sinus headache for a week now. Unfortunately, the only thing that works is Tylenol combined with caffiene, which I am supposed to be limiting due to Baby McGonagall.

We had our first official doctor visit yesterday, I did get to see the baby! It was a very grainy picture, but it's still exciting! She said everything looked perfect and I don't have to go back for 4 weeks!

I am slowly working on projects for my spoilee, I have not been in the mood to work on ANYTHING, so it's going very slow!!!!

ok, stay out of fights!!!

So. Yesterday at school I was preparing for my morning before school and I hear in the hall some girls using some choice words. So I step out to see what the commotion was. It was a girl fight! So I step back in and call for administrators and then go back in the hall. When I got back out there another teacher had stepped up and was trying to intervene. Now, my general policy is that I don't get involved. Especially now that I'm 9 weeks pregnant after trying for so long. Anyway, she had one of the girls by the arms and asked me to help. Only a handfull of very close people know that I'm preggers. So this other teacher asked me for help, so I instictively grab the other girl by the arms. We did finally get them apart, but in the process I was hit in the arm. Not hard, in fact my husband and I play around like that!!!! But man, let me tell you, the hubs laid into me when he found out, then my mom did, then my sister did and one of the secretaries at school did!!!! And now, I have to file a workman's comp claim, I had to be examined by the school nurse and file a police report. Seriously, I was not injured at all!

HSKS10 1st homework assignment

Homework already?!?! The homework this week is to list our 3 favorite characters.
1. Hermione - I like Hermione for her intellect, her matter of factness and her trust in her friends. My husband says that I am a know it all liker Hermione.

2. Minerva McGonagall - she's a teacher, I'm a teacher in the muggle world. She has a sense for people when she first meets them that seems to be pretty accurate. I love that she is a animagus. She's one of the smartest witches ever!

3. I don't remember who else I chose!!!!

TTC day #660

So. We have been working on this project for almost 2 years now. We have not had much luck. In fact, it seems as if everything is working against us. We just completed our possibly last IUI. We were told that if it doesn't work, we may have to move to a much more aggressive therapy. This means much more money, which we don't have. I know that I was placed on Earth to do this. I know that this is my destiny, I just don't know how we are going to get their. I want so much to provide this to Ben, he would be so wonderful. I feel so lost, confused and hurt by this process. We are in another wait and see pattern hoping for the best.
