Entry #51: Two Plus One

It’s been an interesting weekend even though technically I’ve not done much. The exhaustion has gone from a vague shadow to this strange, heavy weight on my shoulders since beginning the progesterone shots…and it was almost instantaneous. I suppose I just put this memory behind me, as the nausea seemed to be overshadowing that during the first two IVF cycles.…

Eco-licious

Well for many the holidays are in full swing. Being pretty minimalist, we’re pretty chill over at our place. The husband and I decided along with going to see Star Wars, that we’d get each other one nice eco-friendly gift. While I know what I got him will make him giddy, when it comes to gift giving, after one special…

Eco-licious

Well we got some gorgeous wonderful awesome cooler temps last week including about a 1/2″ of much-needed rain but then the heat wave came back. 103 yesterday with the same expected today. The (Energy Star) window A/C in our bedroom running at night almost doubled our electricity bill last month from $40 to $70 but I’m rationalizing this by considering…

Entry Number Four: Two Plus One

My FSH appears to be dropping significantly as we had hoped due to getting my thyroid medication levels (TSH) down closer to what they should be…but it doesn’t…

Clare lives in Mauritius (pull out your atlases, kids, that’s off the coast of Africa) after growing up in Ireland.  After following her on Twitter and enjoying her website, I just had to ask her to participate!  She’s got SO many awesome ideas for living simply,…

Tuesday Go Ponder: An Apology to Elephants

“You know … they say an elephant never forgets. What they don’t tell you is, you never forget an elephant.” I can’t say much more than please take 30 minutes to watch this documentary,  An Apology to Elephants, below, and please think about the reality that elephants face before you go to a circus. Then support the Performing Animal Wildlife…
