Mrs. Independent

I know I have not posted in awhile, but I have not had any extra time. Today is the first day since the first of the year that I have had some time to update my blog. I started my meds on January 9th and so far I have not had terrible reactions to them. I have had a little nausea and minor stomach pains. Tonight is going to be a test though; I bump up the patch that I am wearing to three patches. I hope that this doesn't make my emotions go crazy. I am sorry in advance if it does, it will only be for a short time.

Going into this transfer I am trying to get my house a little more organized. Being on bed rest is hard for me because I can't do anything and I have to rely on others. I am a very independent person and have a hard time with others cooking for me, doing my laundry and everything else that goes along with that. Last time I really didn't do anything for the first week and then started doing a little more the second week. I am going to try and do the same thing this time around. The hardest thing for me is I am not suppose to lift anything over 5 lbs and that is pretty much everything!!!!

On another note, we have decided that it is time to redo our bathroom. I am so excited because this is something that has needed to be done for awhile now. We only have one bathroom with a very small vanity and an even smaller medicine cabinet mirror above it. It is crazy in the mornings with us both trying to use the mirror at the same time. We have to stagger ourselves and whoever is spraying the hairspray always has to be in the back so we are constantly shifting positions. It is like we are dancing!!! The challenge for me is going to be staying within the budget that we have set (which isn't that much money....infertility treatments have taken it all), but I am up for the challenge!!!!!! The other problem is going to be doing the work ourselves and me being limited on what I can do. I am hoping that we will be able to get everything started and finished soon!!!

If anyone can get your bath redone on a small budget it's have so much talent and so much creativity and it's so incredible to watch you work. Whatever you do it will be great!!

I cannot believe that you hate Popsicle sticks too! You will forever be my sister in this very small/weird sorority- I'm so glad to know I'm not totally crazy :)

Ps- Good luck on the bathroom. We're getting ready to do some renovations and I'm excited but dreading it at the same time- if that makes any sense at all!
