We got approved for the loan on the mobile home we wanted to buy.


The best part is, barring any major issues we should have it paid off in less than three years and be able to look at purchasing land outside of the city....

Setting up a filter

In order to let those who actually care follow, I am setting up a filter for my attempts to procreate.

It you want to be included, let me know, otherwise I will leave you off.

-fair warning...I predict alot of overshares   :P

What to plant


I live in Zone 4a
I have a 5' by 16' strip alone the north side of my house between the house and the sidewalk/retaining wall (my yard is above the sidewalk)

I am considering


There is alot of foot traffic along the side walk, and a fairly busy 2 lane road on the other side..

Looking for thoughts,

Spring Clean out

So I'm cleaning out closets and getting rid of ALOT of stuff

The wearable (no stains or tears) stuff is going to Lupus Society

But I have alot of really worn, stained and torn clothing...

Does anybody know of anywhere that recycles such things?

I already have bushels of fabric scraps in my sewing room, so I really want it out of the house....just not in a landfill.....

Any ideas?

**warning**rant immenant**

I am SSSOOOOO sick of people who only look at things from one side of the issue.


And the way that the media, politics, a religious groups play on this side of human nature.

The whole pro-life vs. pro-choice/funding for Planned Parenthood argument is making me crazy.

People get so caught up in what is presented to them as the issue, they don't REALLY look at what is going on....

*on a side note-

I dont care if you are pro life or pro choice or somewhere in the midde (like me)...

No one should have to look at pictures of dead babies on the street..

No one should have to explain that to thier small children

No one who has recently suffered the loss of a pregnancy should be faced with the picture of a similarly aged fetus

No one who has had to make that choice

No one who has just eaten lunch for that matter

End rant...for now......

We adopted her wish us luck on surviving the puppy months!

First 'official fertility' visit

So I go Thursday for my first official fertility consult.

I'm lucky in the fact that my OB-GYN is also a fertiltiy specialist, so at least I'm not starting all over with a brand new Dr.

So ladies...what should I know, Ask, think about?

We already know I have PCOS, didn't respond to Metformin, and have super irregular cycles.  I attempted charting temp and CM, but both were classic PCOS...all over the place...

So lay it on me....any advice??
