what's up?

I haven't really been up to anything too exciting lately, just migraines and baby-sitting. That's about it. I think I might finally be getting over the cold I got clear back at the beginning of February. . . I wonder if the constant coughing could be a trigger to the migraines? I hadn't had a migraine (a really nasty one) for about a year, but at the beginning of March I started getting them about once a week. Weird. Anyway, that's about as exciting as my life is right now. John is good. He dropped out of school because the DATC was stupid and decided not to offer the associates program like they had been telling him for the past 1.5 years. They made him very angry so he left class and withdrew from school and now he has to enroll in a real college and hopefully we'll be able to get him through school before it's time to retire.

Its been a while

I haven't blogged here for a little while. I'm not exactly sure I can explain why.
I have had a lot of opportunities to play with my newest niece, Kira, lately, and I have decided that I absolutely love her. Rachel (john's sister) has been really supportive too. I'm a little surprised by that because she's usually the one pointing out the "I have this ...  and you don't" but since she had had Kira she has slacked off a little. She knows how much I want to be a mommy and aside from some comments she's made she's been great.
We were all out to dinner last week and I was cooing at my little Kira and she was so smiley and happy and Rachel said "I can't wait until you and John have a baby." On one hand that was a really sweet comment that holds a little hope, but on the other hand it just made me ache for my baby that I don't have.
One thing is nice though, Rachel lets me baby-sit. This is something that I have really missed out on with Lari and Lucy because Lari and Scott moan and complain about my cats and wont bring Lucy over because they don't want her covered in cat hair ... all I say to that is that they should just suck it up. I understand that Scott is allergic, but its not like I'm going to let the cats roll all over Lucy's things. So in the past if we were asked to watch Lucy we were asked to go to their house. Ugh! But Rachel and Devin have a dog so Kira is usually covered in dog hair anyway. 
I had her for a few hours on the 16th of March, just me and John and Kira hanging out at my house, and it was really nice. That day happened to be our 7th un-anniversary because that was the day we wanted to be married, but it also marked another month of no baby since Aunt Flo stopped by just a few days before... so I was a little sad anyway.
But with Kira there I could just hold her and love her and I was so happy just snuggling with her. John, even though he wanted to hold her too, just let me hold my beautiful niece and didn't want to take her away from me. I appreciated that.
So I haven't been so sad about my lack-o-baby this past month and the one day that I was sad I just couldn't make myself write anything so all the blog got was a chart.
-- By-the-way - M.O.M., the chart logs my Basal Body Temperature, that allows me to see exactly what day I ovulate and I can track the different symptoms and signs that help to know when ovulation is coming. It's quite helpful. --
Another reason why I may not be updating this blog lately is that last month when I ovulated my FertilityFriend.com page told me that my due date would be 11/21/2009. Thus falling into the Forbidden Months  November - February where everything happens and if we can avoid it then we would prefer not to have a baby during this time period. Though we're not preventing, we're not actively trying to conceive.  That way if it happens it happens and we'll welcome a baby any day it decides to come. However, if it doesn't happen in the next 3 months I wont be as devastated as I have been.
I got a letter in the mail from my doctors office a few weeks ago reminding me that it has been a year since my last appointment and its time to come in... I haven't made an appointment yet. I think I'm anxious about going to a new doctor. I will be switching from my CNM to an actual OB/Gyn because she will be able to do tests that the CNM doesn't have the ability to do, but what happens when the OB has done all she can?? I don't know.
My visiting teacher - Jane - has been trying to conceive as long as I have, and she has recently been going to a Reproductive Endocrinologist. These types of providers are not covered by most insurance companies, but the office she has been going to doesn't bill through insurance and only charge $30 per visit and $100 for minor procedures. That's not bad... not like I have a few hundred dollars to throw into the wind if nothing works, but its nice to know that somewhere in the world a Reproductive Clinic is being mindful of us with stupid insurance. I figure I'll give it another 6 months (ack!) and I'll ask Jane what the name of the office is again. Most physicians refer you to a specialist after 1 year of TTC if you're under 35 and after 6 months if you're over. But here I am 2.5 years into it, and I've had my CNM involved since ... well ... officially February 2008. But I had really stopped taking Birth Control back in July of 2006.
I remember back when Lariann was in the hospital with her brain tumor (9/19/06) my period was late... really late. And I thought for sure I was pregnant. I was scared to death because we weren't really trying or ready, but we got ourselves all psyched up about it, but the HPT's were always only kinda + the faint second pink line mocking me in its unsureness, even the pee test at the doctors office was a faint pink + but since they couldn't tell they sent me down to the Lab for a blood test. Well that was negative... and it still took another month and a half for my period to come back. How utterly frustrating. 
Fine, whatever, my body doesn't want to function right. What could I do about it... CNM put me back on BC and told me to lose 50+ pounds during 2007. I tried,  and I got fed up with BC so I stopped when I was finally regular again and have been trying ever since. 
Then there was what I'm pretty sure was a miscarriage back in May of 2003, right around the same time when our friends gave birth to their little Logan... He's almost 6 now. I mark what I could have had by him and think "I could have had one of those" but I really try to not follow that train of thought most days.
- Big Sigh - This is a tiring game. I grow weary of playing. . .
Anyway, like I said, it's time for a new appointment with the doctor and I'm sad to leave Vivian behind, but I'm sure that which ever doctor I choose will be just as helpful (if not more-so) I just hate change, that's all.

Movie Day

Wednesday has become date night. Funny how it used to be nap night, when I'd get home from work at 4:10 and HAVE TO lay down and sleep for a few hours because the first three days of the week had taken so much out of me.
Last night for date night John took me out to a movie and dinner. We saw Race to Witch Mountain and I'll admit, I loved it. I'm a huge fan of the original Escape to Witch Mountain and Return to Witch Mountain (although these were on the list of movies I hardly ever got to watch because older siblings told me it was "dumb" just like Chitty-Chitty Bang Bang and Mary Poppins) Never-the-less, Race to Witch Mountain was amusing. It made me laugh, it almost made me sad, and it was full of adventure, which is something I love in movies. "The Rock" did not disappoint even though his name is Dwayne Johnson. The kids could have been better looking but I guess if you're an alien then you can be kinda funny looking. I recommend this movie to those who enjoy a good Disney adventure movie.
I've been told that next Wednesday is Monsters vs. Aliens which I think looks totally cute. I'll fill you all in on that one later.

How funny

I've stared to receive mail addressed "To the Parents of Chandler Mackenzie"  ... Which brings to mind a few questions:
1) What is my nephew signing up for that involves my address?
2) Does that make me Chandler's mom?
3) What on earth am I going to do with a 17 year-old?

Turn off the idiot box....

A few movies I have seen lately that I wanted to make note of.... It's been a while since I talked about movies, but I'm not going back into the archives of my mind to tell you what I have see in ... what... like the last 6 months. I have really slacked off on blogging here, I'll do better.
Watchmen - okay, this movie was one of the most violent movies I have ever seen. And yet, I thought it was awesome. I'd also like to say it's one of the most sex filled movies I'd ever seen, but I'm pretty sure that I have seen worse. But none-the-less, it was fascinating. The story was intriguing and the plot had me guessing for a little while. John had read the graphic novel previously so he knew what would happen, but I was blissfully unaware and just let the movie unfold before me. My brother-in-law also saw this movie recently and said that he didn't find it as violent and John and I did, and we think that perhaps seeing it in IMAX may have added to the carnage being like 60 ft tall and what-not. I would not recommend this movie to anyone, unless you really want to see it. It's not your average superhero movie where hero saves girl and all live happily ever after... in fact, it's not even close.
The Spiderwick Chronicles - This movie was a good cute adventure. I have often picked the Spiderwick books up off the shelf at the store and thought of buying them, but they always get put back and passed up for more mature fantasy reads. Finally I thought 'when the movie comes out I'll see it' and it took me a while, but I finally saw it. I liked it. (I love the little boy in the movie, the actors name is Freddie Highmore and has been in great films like Finding Neverland, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.) In this movie, he plays both the main character and his own twin brother which I always find fascinating. This is a movie I would recommend, it's a cute family show and even if you don't have a family to show it to it's a nice little adventure to pop in the player.
SpeedRacer - I had heard that this movie was not that good and like some had puked neon all over the screen... well, I disagree. I really liked it. The story was okay and the acting was fine (except for the stupid little brother and the monkey, I could have done without those.) I really enjoyed the movie. I think my one real complaint about it was that it was just a bit to long. It was cartoony and cheesy, but if you like that stuff then I think you'd like this movie.
The X-Files: Seasons 1-4 - These have probably been on my TV nearly non stop since Christmas and I had forgotten how much I absolutely love Mulder and Scully. These shows were genius. The story lines are intriguing. The smoking man is irritating and Assistant Director Skinner can't seem to decide who's side he's on.... I really missed watching these. The X-Files were such a huge part of me growing up in the 90's that watching them again is just like coming home... I can't wait until Season 5 arrives in my mail box, I'm dying to know if Mulder is really dead, and why is the government being so cruel to him...
StarGate SG-1: Seasons 1-3 - Finally! We have finished watching all 10 seasons of StarGate. It was fun to watch them all backwards and to see how different things have played out throughout the series. The first seasons we watched in order though and it did make a lot more sense. We have found it funny that almost all the actors that are featured in StarGate SG-1 have made at least one appearance (if not more) on the X-Files.

1st Annual Ladies Night 2009

Last night was my first Ladies Night, and I must say it was a blast! I got together with my two friends Alesha and Ashley and had a great time.We had dinner at Applebee's in Bountiful and enjoyed each other's company. They both ordered Hamburgers, and I had my usual Oriental Chicken Wrap. Yumm. It was so nice to get out and just be with the girls, it has been so long since I have done that. I loved it!

It was fun to see Alesha she's always full of interesting news and I am glad she was able to make it. We caught up on the "family news" and discussed music and life and all the good things since last we met. . . And it is always fun when Ashley comes to play. Its been 2 years since I have seen her (and 5 years before that,) but I have realized that she is one of those friends that even if I don't see her for a long time we can get together and just pick up where we left off. I think I have 3 friends in the whole world I can do that with. It was fun to hear about her family and what changes she's had in her life. She's super great and she says she is looking forward to more of my Ladies Nights, which makes me look forward to introducing her to the other fantastic women in my life.

I'm sad that I forgot to take my camera last night, and that I even forgot that I had a camera on my phone or I'd post a picture. I just have to remind myself that I need to bring my camera next time. I drew a picture of us... see --->

I did miss all of you who didn't come, and I look forward to future nights where we can be together.

The next Ladies Night is set for April 15, 2009. I was thinking about going bowling.

I think I'll try and keep our venues in the Bountiful area since there are people coming from all over the valley and Bountiful seems like a good central location. More information to follow.

As always, if you have any questions you can email me or call me.

March Madness

Well March madness has begun here at work. For the first time ever I filled out a Bracket. Now I know that my pick for winning the whole thing is a stretch, but you got to stick with you team win or lose. Anyway, I Picked U of U as the big winner. I won’t bore you with the rest of the details unless someone asks. It’s been really entertaining to have all the guys give me a hard time about my chooses, but having never cared before I think I have done ok. Besides I really don’t care about the Prize at the end. One of my bosses family all fill out brackets. The winner gets $50, and a big trophy with a basketball player on it. They keep the trophy till next year. It’s funny because my dad loves sports, but March Madness wasn’t a big deal. I remember A woman I dated She and her family got so excited this time of year. There were fights and hard feelings about games. Wins and loses were such a huge deal. I would just laugh and make fun of them. Anyway, to everyone out there who cares may the best team win. LOL!

"What Color do Your Eyes Reflect?"

Your eyes reflect the color Black. You have deep, deep emotions that cause you to be a tad conceded and distant towards people. You have inner problems that have not yet been resolved and you want to feel excepted and loved by others. You are caring deep inside and you look out for others secertly. You have a heart that yearns to love and yet something holds you back....You tend to have low self-esteem and dont appreciate yourself at times. Even though your eyes reflect black you are the color that represents the most potential. You dont trust people as much as you could. Wait awhile and maybe you will be enlighted by the darkness in your eyes, Because where ever there is darkness there will always be a light waiting to be lit. In all you are the Awaiting One.

My new most favorite thing in the whole world.

Friday, March 13, 2009

No work today

Hey there. It's Friday the 13th. Did you know that 13 is my favorite # and Friday the 13th is my favorite day and that Friday the 13th is among my favorite horror movies, and if I could I would live on the 13th floor and I would have 13 cats and Drive a VW Bug with a 13 painted on the hood and I would own 13 pairs of shoes and be able to read 13 books a day and remember the plot lines, I would make 13 Billion dollars a year and own 13 private islands. I would also have 13 private jets and 13 various sports cars. I would always drive 13 miles over the speed limit and some day I'd get pulled over by 13 cops and be sentenced to 13 years in jail but I'd get 13 years of probation for good behavior but then I'd skip the country in one of my 13 private jets and spend 13 wonderful decades in the south of France where my only decision would be which of my 13 bikinis would I wear because of course I would only weigh 113 pounds. But then after adopting my 13 German babies I'd take them to one of my 13 islands and teach them that red is blue and blue is orange and that there is only one number that counts and that is 13. But since that wont happen for another 13 years I'll just stay here and enjoy the fact that it is Friday the 13th.

I have fingers! (taken 3/4/09)

The Mormon Message for the Day



Today is March 12. Today is a Thursday. Today the sun is shining. Today I woke up in a bad mood. Today I can't remember what it feels like to breathe through my nose. Today I'm wondering if Zombification is covered by workers comp. Today I don't feel like doing anything. Today I am reminded to enjoy every moment because it may not come again. Today I'm letting go of regrets because you can never go back. Today I am missing the women who have vanished from my life. Today my soul is heavy. Today I cried. Today is the one year anniversary of my Michelle passing away.

There are so many words that are in my head that want to express how I feel today, but my fingers and this paltry keyboard are insufficient for my needs. It's a jumble of letters and feelings that fill my thoughts that all come out sounding like this when I try to write: iehrjkhsekfhy owiaeyf ifhiyetu iohyf jdfhkjheuih fr;s yhfuhs;eifhdjff h jkdh (#%&@&#%&@RUI FH UIEUr89uiehf 8 uieru48  5y%&*& *%  597u iut thjdslejtiy ghn!!  Or there is the more primal urge in me that just wants to smash something.

It's strange to me how one family has effected my life so much even though I only lived with one member of that family for 6 weeks in this long expanse of life. I have never felt such joy or sorrow as I have with being associated with the Huppi family. I think that when Mel died it was my first "real" experience with death. I say this because even though I have dealt with death and even had my own grandfather pass away not to long before I left on my mission, they were mostly old people who it was okay if they passed on and I was detached from the situation. But I remember the day President and Sister Robinson came to the door and informed Michelle of her loss. I felt it too. The days and weeks that passed were painful to me. The work was hard and I think that is also my first real brush with depression. Michelle put on a brave face, and together we did our best.

Since that day I have dealt with the deaths of many close friends that have brought me to a new low in life. Where I now understand the word Tragedy and how it can affect one so deeply.

When I was told last year that Michelle was in a coma I wanted to not believe it, I wanted so badly for the information I received to be wrong. How could something so terrible happen to someone so wonderful. I had received an email from her just days before, bragging about how great things were going and how happy she was… how could this be true!? Three days I waited all while trying to contact those from the Mission who also knew and loved her. Each day I cried, each day I prayed... and in the end Michelle was taken away.

It's been a struggle, to say the least, for me to understand why a beautiful person such as her would be taken from her family so suddenly and at such a young age. She was only a little older then me. She was so full of life and love and hope.

I just don't see the plan. I know that our Heavenly Father loves us, and that there is a plan and that for some reason unbeknownst to us it was her time to go. I know there is a lesson in there for me to learn about the eternal nature of families, and of temple work and of being faithful… That doesn't change the fact that there is a hole left in my heart where Michelle used to be.

It's like my poor heart is made of swiss cheese with this hole over here belonging to michelle - and this hole over here belonging to susan - and this other hole over here belonging to valerie - and that whole over there belonging to my sisters - and that other one belongs to rugburn - and that one belongs to my dreams of being a mommy - and do you see these little holes over here, they get bigger as time goes by, they belong to my little "wyatt" or "michelle" that I long to hold in my arms and the hear them call me mommy - then there is that other one that is missing something that I can't decide if I found and lost, or if I have never found it at all.

Today is a day of mourning and a day to reflect on my goals and reassess my priorities in life. Today is especially hard because it is a reminder of things that I don't have that I may never possess. Today I want to remember and be comforted in the promises that death is only the beginning.

I guess the whole point of this is that today I am feeling depressed and that sunny side of life has slipped into twilight. But never fear, the sun comes up every morning, or so I've been told.

Today's Capricorn Horoscope:

Mar 12, 2009
Try to have a positive and optimistic outlook today, dear Capricorn. Adopt an attitude of gratitude and look to see the beauty in everything around you. This is a day to appreciate what you've got - especially the people who love you. Compliment others and let them know how much they mean to you. These words and deeds will have a rippling effect that will bring you a great deal of good fortune.

Is there hope?

President Uchtdorf's talk from last conference says:

"Hope is critical to both faith and charity. When disobedience, disappointment, and procrastination erode faith, hope is there to uphold our faith. When frustration and impatience challenge charity, hope braces our resolve and urges us to care for our fellowmen even without expectation of reward. The brighter our hope, the greater our faith. The stronger our hope, the purer our charity."


Do you have any objections to "Girls Night" being on a Wednesdays?
I was just sitting here thinking of when a good night would be and I thought to myself how Wednesdays just drag on sometimes and I thought, "I wish I had something fun to do tonight" ...
And if Wednesdays are agreeable how about we have a set Wednesday? Like, let's say the 3rd Wednesday of the month?
Questions, comments, objections?

Wow, I feel so enlightened now

Scientist discovers secret behind navel lint

An Austrian scientist claims to have solved the mystery of belly button fluff.

Dr. Georg Steinhauser studied more than 500 pieces of lint from his own belly button in making his discovery.

Steinhauser found that the lint is not only compromised of cotton from clothing, but it also contains dust, sweat, fat and flecks of dead skin.

He says belly hair helps to hook the fluff that ends up in the belly button.

Shaving your belly, wearing older garments, and body piercings he says can all help to eliminate the navel fuzz.

Girls Night Out

I have been thinking lately that I have been rather reclusive and I have shut out a lot of my friends because I haven't felt like being sociable to anyone... well, that has been perpetuated for almost six years now, and it's time to take a step out of my comfort zone and become reacquainted with the women in my life whom I love and miss and often wish that I could spend more time with.
I have decided that I need to have a "girls night" once a month with my girly friends where we can go to a movie or to dinner or something so I can hang out with other people and expand my social circle. This will also gives others an opportunity to get away from husbands and children and/or the mundane loneliness of single life and to make some new friends.
I need "girl time".
All are invited, unless of course you are a man, then you are not invited. If you live out of state and are in town for girls night give me a call...
My Rules for Girls Night:
1) I MUST go out once a month, if you can't join me every month then plan on the next month, or whenever you can come. But I sure hope I'm not going out alone every month.
2) I haven't decided if you are allowed to bring a friend or not. This is my girls night, and I don't want to be put in the uncomfortable situation of having to meet a new person. (this rule may change one day.)  
3) Others must offer suggestions, I just want to go out, I don't want to be your Social Planner or Event Coordinator.

Do you think that this would be a good idea? 

Who is up for it?

What night(s) would be best for you?

Ha Ha

I got a great laugh out of this earlier today.

Help, help I can't Breath!

So I hope this story is as funny as it was last night.
So last night I got to go to my Cousin's house. Which was tons of fun. After making homemade pizza we all played a game. My other cousin and her husband, and their awesome son was there as well. The game we played was called "imaginiff" It has questions that you ask and everyone had a number and then you pick the number that best fit the answer to the question. So the Question was, "If one of you was a mime, who would be trapped in their invisialbe box forever." Everyone laughed and picked me right away. We all laughed about me being trapped not saying a word needing help. Also me writing invisible signs for help and so on. I then said "Well, that's all funny until I run out of air in my invisible box and die." I laughed so hard I cried and so did everyone else. The mental picture of me slowly suffocating away in my invisible box as a mime. My cousin wanted to blog about it as well. I just had to share that funny moment with everyone at my expense. Anyway, we all played and had pizza and had a great time. Thanks again for having us all over.
