This weekend is Father’s Day, as you may know. Along with buying Greg his ice tea maker, I’ve bought 2 tickets to the Orioles for Sunday!! The seats are in Section 98 Row B and on the end. That’s as close to the field as I could get. Greg doesn’t know that I’ve bought the tickets, so they are a surprise. Sssshhhhh!! LOL I am also planning on treating him to all food and drinks as well. I did confirm that I can bring my own water for Amelia’s bottles and that I don’t have to buy a ticket for her. This should be interesting; Amelia’s first game. I am going to see if I can Nick Markakis or Tejada to ‘sign my baby’. If I could get one of their autographs for Greg, I bet that would make his day!
A surprise that I learned from Greg was that he was telling/showing a co-worker of his, Brooke, of where we, as in Greg and I, are going for a honeymoon! This leads me to believe that Greg, 1. is sharing personal information with his co-workers, such as feelings for me and our future, and 2. he is looking forward to marrying me; even so that he’s sharing the honeymoon plans with co-workers! This amazed me last night because Greg is one of those people that likes to keep family, friends, and co-workers separate from each other. I learned that a long time ago. But, after last night’s discussion, he’s changing and integrating everyone! This makes me happy. Besides, Brooke told Greg that we are perfect for each other because we’re both smart asses. Oh, that silly Brooke!
Ok, there are about 2 weeks left until the move. I am getting more and more excited! Unfortunately, these next two weekends are already busy. On Saturday, Greg and I are going to open the new checking accounts at Wachovia and Sunday is the Baseball game. Next Saturday is my cousin April’s baby shower down in Waldorf. So, I am thinking that after Greg and I go to the bank on Saturday, we’re going to start bagging, boxing, and tubing things. There really isn’t all that much to move since we’ve both moved in the last 12 months. Thankfully, I don’t have to worry about my 1200lb couch and Greg isn’t taking his couch-like things because Pat, Greg’s other brother, is giving us his couches! So, out of the townhouse, I am moving my bedroom stuff and the dining room table and chairs as well as a few kitchen items (plates, pots/pans, microwave, etc). We should be able to do it all in the afternoon.
Last night, I moved all my private posts from my Y! 360 blog to my ‘secret garden’ as I’m calling it, and re-opened the Y! 360 blog. It was interesting to read all the stuff I wrote about in March and April. My god, was I emotionally nuts back then. I feel, that with each month/cycle, my emotions are becoming a little more stable. So far, *knock on wood* I don’t feel as insecure about some things that I did last month, but at the same time, I haven’t started my cycle, yet (and I know it’s on the way because my appetite has increased significantly, my lower back hurts, especially on the left side, I am feeling a little crampy, etc). So, we shall see how the week goes. At least my cycle will be over in time for moving; I hope. I didn’t take my active pill on Sunday and I still haven’t started. But, no matter what, I am going to start my new pack this coming Sunday.
Yesterday, at work, I ran across a very fascinating blog about infertility. The lady has an amazing writing and story telling style! I was completely engulfed in her blog and was reading from the very beginning. I plan on finishing up today (thankfully, we’re fully staffed and the calls have died down some).
For a while, after the doctor told me that it would be nearly impossible for me to conceive on my own due to PCOS, I researched infertility treatments and Adam and I even talked about seeing a specialist just to get an idea of what our options would be when we were ready. Obviously, something changed from 2002 to 2006. It’s ‘weird’ to think, but Adam and I were together for nearly 8 years and we never became pregnant; Greg and I were ‘together’ for 8 months and I become pregnant. Hmm, makes one think … guess we’ll never know… Anyway, there is hope for those out there that have been told ‘you can not conceive naturally.’
