We have been so extremely busy that we haven't been able to BD! GGRRR....So we bought a 2008 GMC Envoy this weekend! It is a really nice vehicle. Reliable, a bit more fuel efficient too.

We are putting the house up for sale today so that's nice. It is nerve wracking from our stand point though.

I'm really sorry that you had to put the house up for sale, Ashley. I hope that you are able to find one you like just as much or even better. I know that moving can be very stressful. I am here for you if you need to talk.

Thanks ladies! Sam we are short selling the house. It is a fixed rate but they don't take enough money out for escrow so every year we see a huge jump in payments! We just can't afford it unfortunately. Joe and I both cried yesterday in front of the realtor. We started our life in that house, joe proposed to me in that house, carried me through that front door.... It's hard for me to leave it.

Not much in the TTC side though.

Hey ladies, today is a better day. Elle, we have no clue where we are going to be moving. The realtors told us that with the current mortgage holder that we have their shortsales have been taking between 6-8 months. So the good news is we still have some breathing room to save up some cash.

Having you ladies has literally been my rock lately. I feel like its the world against me, even though I know its not! Good news is that I have been able to pick up alot more hours at work so it has been nice.

I went for my first run yesterday in a couple of weeks! It felt so amazing! Riley had a blast. We got home and she was so tired! I have also lost about 4 pounds this last week! It is insane! A lot of water weight to lose!

Thank you so much ladies! I am forever grateful for you all. This weekend went ok for showings. We already have about 6 offers off the house. One of the realtors hugged me because he could tell I was upset and I lost it. I am very much a touch person so when he hugged me, BOOM! Full on water works... : /

There were only about 4 couples that we really liked enough for our home though. Oh well, we shall see. On the TTC side, I am pretty sure that we missed my O. So I am sad about that too. Everything happens for a reason though.

I'm sorry about the house sweetie. I cannot imagine how you are feeling right now.

Hopefully you'll be able to figure things out quickly! *hugs*

Just thought I would add that ever since the DH and I have taken the Au Naturale approach to TTC, I feel off about it. I don't feel as excited or anything like that. Instead, I feel very angry towards my friends that are getting pregnant and jealous.
With the house, I don't know how to deal with it. If feel like I don't know how to handle my emotions that I have. I walk into my house now and all I feel is sad. Maybe (more than likely) that is the cause for feelings I have towards TTC... DH is trying to be strong for us. But it's like he just has an emotion switch that he can turn off. HE shows no emotion at all and it makes me feel weak so I am always apologizing. When I asked him about it he says that he needs to be my rock right now. I don't get it. But then again I am a woman and he is a man. ; )

My sister told me yesterday that she didn't feel pregnant so it wouldn't matter when she got an abortion.....

I am ready for this streak of bad luck or whatever to stop...

I think it's perfectly normal to have times where you don't feel super excited about TTC. My feelings about it change by the day or sometimes even by the hour. Sometimes I'm really excited, sometimes I'm frustrated, sometimes I'm sad or angry, etc.

Is your sister planning to have an abortion? Or did she just mean for that comment to be some kind of a sick joke? Either way, would you feel comfortable asking her not to talk about her pregnancy with you right now?

Thanks ladies! Reba, my sister is getting an abortion now. I feel bad for doing this, but I told her if she couldnt afford to get pregnant and didn't want to in the first place to keep her legs closed or use a f*****g condom....Really got under my skin there!

I feel bad for saying it and now I am not speaking with her at the moment. I can't even bare for her to bring up my niece. We have 6 official offers on the house at the moment. Joe and I will sit down tonight and accept 1 offer. Something else, for the past couple years when I go out in the sun I break out in what seems like eczema. Long story short I finally went to the doctors office today (dermatologist) and he said that I am allergic to the sun! This is the technical term for it Polymorphous light eruption. Good news is, it should hopefully go away within the next few years! Yay! In the meantime, topical steroid cream hand in hand with SPF 90 sunscreen. I should avoid prolonged and over exposure to sunlight. Which is fine with me because I actually get sun poisoning, full vomiting and all!

I'm sorry about your sister. I wouldn't be able to speak to her at the moment either. Honestly, I probably would have said the same thing. I don't think you should feel guilty or badly about it.

I avoid the sunlight just because I have really fair skin.
