Since deciding to celebrate my birthday for 16 days straight at the beginning of the new year became a big ole' flop... Which by the way, what happened to a present for every day of January, hubs? Hmm... I'll be looking for it tomorrow when I wake up.
In honor of my birth, I have decided to ONLY work until the bell rings today (since it's technically past midnight.. EEK!) and then get my ass outta the building, into my car, and driving on home to my casa WITHOUT stopping at Target (or Lakeshore or any other place...) Okay, maybe I will allow myself to stop at Target. Okay, maybe i'll only work until 5pm... Oh wait... I haven't graded even HALF of my Benchmark Tests yet... So maybe 5:30? What the hell am I kidding, grades are due on Thursday... So, I guess I will try and get out before 7:30 pm? Okay, yeah, that sounds like a good idea. Dinner? Who needs to eat. I'll just stuff my face with Twix bars and Snickers all day tomorrow. SCCCOOORREEE!
So what is it that awaited me at my doorstep when I got home from work today?
And what did those packages contain?
Of course they contained presents that I purchased for myself, remember? DUH.
My first package was some stuff I ordered from Vistaprint after purchasing a Groupon a few months ago. I used to be crazy about this site when it first came out. I created magnets and postcards for Save the Dates before my wedding (this was back when the site was completely free other than about 5 buckaroos for shipping.) Now the site is like highway robbery. Gosh dang, is that shipping expensive!
(Please ignore the crappy and blurry IPhone photos. I didn't realize how horrendous these photos were until uploading them. I'm almost embarrassed to post these. OH WELL, here they are anyways!)
The other package at my doorstep?
Only the most important one (to me anyways... and that's all that matters, obviously!)
Now, a few of you happened to read my post that I quickly deleted (less than 5 minutes after posting it.) I'm hoping that I will someday get the guts to re-post it because it's been weighing heavily on my mind lately (lately being about 4 years....) But, i'm not ready to click 'PUBLISH' just yet. Hopefully soon though...
Hello and welcome to my household fabulous little Basal temperature thermometer and wonderful ovulation sticks. I'm hoping that you will be incredibly useful, effective and helpful for me in 2013. Actually, i'm not HOPING, i'm pretty much DEMANDING and telling you that you WILL be effective. No if's, and's or but's about it.
Has anyone ever used these with success or know someone who has? Or has anyone ever used any type of ovulation test? I've heard mixed reviews about all of them so I was pretty hesitant on spending my hard earned cash on these little suckers. Please, don't let me down teeny tiny test strips.
Does anyone do the whole crazy 'charting' thing? It sounds pretty time consuming to me. And honestly, i'm pretty lazy (at least i'm honest, right?) I'm also one of those people that need INSTANT gratification so if these don't work.. umm, say, TOMORROW? I'll be pretty pissed and annoyed already (hey, it's one of my resolutions this year... to learn PATIENCE. Give me a break, it's only the beginning of January... I have a whole notha' 11 months to practice it. Plus, it's my BIRFFFFDAY, cut me some slack!)
So, let's everyone tell me how incredibly easy it will be to get pregnant and that i'll become the bloggersphere's coolest, biggest and most followed MOMMY blogger this time next year. Alright, I guess I may be setting my sights a TAD too high, huh?
Oh well, here goes nothing...
