Happy Father's Day, Todd


People don't always see the tears a dad cries,
His heart is broken too when his child dies.
He tries to hold it together and be strong,
Even though his world's gone wrong.

He holds his wife as her tears fall,
Comforts her through it all,
He goes through his day doing what he's supposed to do,
But a piece of his heart has been ripped away too.

So when he's alone he lets out his pain,
And his tears come like falling rain,
His world has crashed in around him,
And a world that was once bright has gone dim.

He feels he has to be strong for others,
But Dads hurt too, not just the Mothers,
He searches for answers but none are to be found,
He hides behind a mask when he is feeling down.

He smiles through his tears,
He struggles and holds in his fears,
But what you see on the outside is not always real,
Men don't always show how they really feel.

So I'd like to ask a favor of you,
The next time you see a mother hurting
over the loss of her child,
please remember.....a Dad hurts too.

Happy Father's Day from Tobin, Miles, Jack, Spike and Willow.  Thank you for being the best father anyone could ever ask for.

Off to the races!

So yesterday's appointment went really well.  Though my RE had to have the "talk" with me again about the risk of multiples.  We have three follicles.  A 19mm, 18mm and a 16mm.  All viable sizes and most likely will all produce a mature egg.  So our IUI is scheduled for tomorrow morning.  Then all we can do is wait.

As always prayers are appreciated.  It's so hard to go through this month after month and add in the hormones and it's a nightmare.

Hoping for a miracle and a rainbow.

Wonderful Weekend!

Had a great time with friends and their boys on Saturday.  Didn't end up getting to the movies but after all the time we spent outside, we were too wiped to do anything!

Yesterday went to the mall to have some jewelry cleaned.  Then just hung out.  Though we both got on the treadmill last night so it wasn't a total waste. 

Back to the RE today to check on my progess.  Then I have a mani/pedi scheduled for this afternoon.  So excited to get some pampering in.  :)

Then a week from tomorrow I will be in Connecticut helping my Mom pack up and get ready for her retirement voyage across the country.  Though all she needs to do is take a plane.  Todd will take care of getting her stuff out here. 

This is why I love my husband.  he knows how hard it was for me to leave my family when we moved to Colorado, so when we talked about my Mom moving out here he was the one who offered her to stay with us.  And he offered to drive her stuff here.  He knows what it means to me to have her close by and has been so supportive.

It's been a week since my last post.  What an exciting time it has been!!!

My mom sold her house in just seven days!  She is retiring as of 6/14 and will be making the journey out to Colorado to live with us.  She is very excited to be starting a new chapter in her life and hope that her wonderful luck will rub off on us!!

She actually had a little bidding war going on and sold her house for the full asking price.  That NEVER happens!!!  So I am proud of her and I hope her closing goes off without a hitch.

She had her inspection on Wednesday so we are hoping that everything is fine and she can start to book her moving arrangements.

I am flying out to Connecticut to help her get ready and get packed up on the 19th of this month.  I will be back on the 26th and while I am there I will see a few people but for the most part this is about getting my mom organized and packed up and ready to go.

Right now her tentative move date is July 10th and we couldn't be more excited to have her.

On the TTC front, went to the RE today - only after 2 days of injections and I have one 11mm and several under 10mm.  This is pretty normal for me at this time.  I go back on Monday and I hope to have a few showing some promise.  IUI should be before the end of the week.

Also going for a mani/pedi on Monday afternoon.  I have a Groupon from last year and it's calling my name!!!

This weekend we are having some friends over for a cookout and might go see Snow White and the Huntsman.  It looks good, just not sure if Kristen Stewart has learned how to act or not...LOL!!!

Green means GO!

On the TTC front...CD2 here today.  Baseline looks clear.  My doctor's office was kind enough to change some medications and also give me some Clomid so I don't have to pay for that.  It's only $30 but every little bit helps.  Maybe the donated Clomid will bring me luck from it's previous owner. 

Usually when someone gets pregnant they will donate unused meds to the office for people like me.  So it's always appreciated.

I go back on June 8th for a peek.  :)
