Speaking of kicks...this kid is going to be a soccer player when he/she grows up. There is not a dull moment in my day...actually, the baby is kicking now as I type.
Dh and I were lying in bed, and he was getting dissapointed because he couldn't feel the kicks yet. I had my hand on my tummy, and I FELT A KICK! and I grabbed his hand, and put it on my tummy....a few moments later...he felt the kick!!!! He was soooooooooo happy!!!!! I'm so glad he felt the kicks.
I got new glasses yesterday, they are nice...but boy oh boy....they're gonna take a while to get used to...either that or something is wrong with the lenses...which I actually think it is. Things look closer and a little warped. So, if I can make it to the optical today to get them looked at, I'll try.
Today is also my 6 mth checkup...can't wait for that one. They're always good!
Thanks for reading!

We recieved the ultrasound pictures...17.00 for 2????? that's quite a bit of money there dont ya think?? anyhow...they looked different than what I thought they would. I thought that they'd be bigger...but the tech was zoomed out. Either way it's our miracle that we're looking at :) I will post them as soon as I can :)
Today will be cleaning/packing/storing day. We've decided that we're going to be SUPER prepared for when an opportunity opens up. No, we're not packing away everything we own, but things we dont need will be put away.
I guess that's enough rambling for now...more will come later. thanks for reading!

I've been in a huge rut since I left the DT for LCOM. It seems as if my creativity has left me as well. I'm making cards...but no layouts :( I'm really not too pleased with this at all. If anyone has any mojo, I would certainly love to borrow some until mine comes back.
The project that I'm working on now is a layout for Rememberance Day. Dana posted a note about a Card challenge. However, I asked if I could turn it into a layout instead...I just might do a card too though. Here's the link: http://www.letscaptureourmemories.com/forum/index.php?topic=2827.0 Aren't those cards fabulous!!
So, on another note...I've made it 1/2 way through. I have to admit...I'm truly scared out of my mind...what was I thinking when we decided to do this!! I've never raised kids before....I've only babysat, and heck...I've never even held a newborn! What if I do something wrong? What if I dont feed him/her properly?? What if I dont know why the little one is crying...what if I buy the wrong kind of this or that....what if i'm not a good mother....I know worry is a common enough thing...but I'm near loosing my bloody mind!
Onto another thing...dh and I have an interview on Thursday for a transfer within the compnay, but to another province. If we get it, this will mean yet another move...2 in one year...not bad...right, i'll just keep on telling myself that! It'll mean moving to a bigger city, more traffic, faster way of life, faster everything. But at least we wont feel segregated from our family's, and we wont have to pay a fee to get to the other part of Canada. I dont get it...when I went home to my home town...we paid 20.00 when we left....here for the boat it's 62.00 and the bridge is 42.50!!! Why is it so friggin expensive!!!
I am waiting for paint to dry...maybe that's why I'm rambling so much...and off to make lunch! Thanks for reading!

I also felt my uterus today. The doctor felt it, then I asked if I could, and she showed me where it was lol. Then it was time to hopefully hear the heartbeat. Well, she started with the magic wand on my belly, and within a minute we heard the baby's heart beating!! I was sooooo happy and relieved that I started crying. To be quite honest...I was terrified that I wouldn't hear the heartbeat at all, and that something would be wrong. I'm so glad my fears were put to ease.
My ultrasound is scheduled for October 26th, and my next doctor's appointment is for October 29th!!! So very very excited!!!!

Today is just not my day. It really isn't...I'm sick and tired of seeing negatives on the HPT's....I just want to give up. And If I stop trying, I feel like I might miss my month, or maybe I haven't tried hard enough, and I'll be kicking myself in the behind for not trying. I'm recording my temps, and I'm charting with Fertility Friend. So...I keep thinking...maybe I just can't have kids...or maybe I'm not good enough to have children. It's scary having all those thoughts run through a persons mind, it really is. I mean, I feel inadeuqate because I haven't gotten a positive result yet. I know I haven't been trying for a year or two, but for those of us who have tried and kept trying...and just keep getting disapointed....you know what I'm going through...it's painful, and heart breaking. Sorry...I just had to vent, and get that out.
Well, here's to 7 months of trying....maybe we'll just stop this month...and completely stop. Thanks for letting me rant.
John and I went to Cavendish Beach on Saturday, here are some photos. I absolutely love the scenery there, and the cliffs are gorgeous. Yep, the water was decent enough to walk in. It's funny though, the beach was not red sand as I had expected, it was normal beach sand.

Finally, it's done! And I am pleased with how it turned out! I was going to do something with Owls, because she has a mega collection. However, I was reminded that her favourite colour is purple, and without further adieu...here it is :::

We found 4 this Friday. Although, one of them..the cache was missing. We started in St. Martins and plotted our trip back to Saint John. The first one we found was on top of the caves, and oh boy was it ever high up. Here are the pictures from that one.
Then, we moved onto another one. I dont have pictures of it though, because we didn't find it. IT was missing. But, it was the hardscrabble bridge...very lovely. Our third cache, and I can't mention where though...was located near some caves. The trail was a little washed out, but we managed.
My husband takes joy in getting the weirdest shots ever lol. Or, at least I think he does! So, then we got to go and see some awesome caves!! It was low-tide, and perfect for "cave dwellers"

Last night, I did my turn for the February Scraplift Challenge for paws. IT was great!! I really want to post it, but not until the reveal!!
I guess it's time to do more scrappy work. DH and I are packing up because we're moving at the end of the month, still dont know where yet. However, our plan B will be revealed on Sunday/Monday of this month. This is in case he does not get a solid job. We're not finding lots to throw out which is good, just a few small things here or there.
Anyhow, gotta get back to blog surfing/scrapping.

This is my 2nd attempt at the 6x12 album layout. I really enjoyed doing this one, as it brought back memories of when I was a child. The journal says "We sure loved our poppy. We would always be poppy's girls. I dont remember him, I was (I think) 3 when he died. But I do know that he loved us very much. (1983)"
This is my 3rd attempt at the 6x12 album layout. This special one was fun to do. I really loved taking road trips with my younger sister, and we always had a blast. I'm not going to type out the journalling because theres too much of it, enjoy reading! TFL

The girls all stood around afterwards and talked, and I guess that's where I consider myself a "social reject". It is not anyone's fault but my own. I wasn't being "snotty" or "stuck up" I guess maybe it's just because for the last 7 months, I have not made any friends, haven't gone out anywhere, and I dont do anything unless my husband is with me. Maybe, it's because I don't know how to react to being around people, maybe I just dont have any kind of social skills.
Whatever it is, as I sit here typing this, a few tears are falling. They're falling because I so badly want to make friends here, and yet...it just seems so far out of my reach.
Maybe this goes back to when I was a kid, and how I sheltered myself. I would always be in my room with my nose in a book...not wanting but desperately wanting to have friends. When the chance would happen, I'd always pass it up. I guess maybe I felt I wasn't good enough to be someone elses friend.
Maybe all this babbling is nonsense, and makes me seem like a pity party all to myself. I'm not like that though. I'm a very nice person, and I believe I have good qualities that would make me a good friend to lots of people. I just dont have the social skills to be that person.
