Thursday of last week I finally gave up the ghost on my printer. If you remember I wanted to create a photo wall behind the bed which is bare right now as seen here:
Saturday was a very busy day. I started out with my second acupuncture appointment. I have to say that I did not enjoy this one as much. I thought the needles hurt more than last time and I was a little tense since it was only my second time and this was a different person. Luckily I will be back with my original acupuncturist Dr. Price this week. They also received my FET timeline so they will be able to help me best schedule my future appointments. While I was there, Handsome was taking Heidel to the vet for her checkup - everything was good. I got home hoping we could get to the mall early and eat at P.F. Chang's before Handsome's hair appointment at noon. Unfortunately I hadn't let him know of my grand plan and when I got home he was outside trimming the tree. This meant that he had to take a shower and clean up before we could go and there wasn't enough time to eat before his appointment so we ate after. The air conditioning company was supposed to come out for our annual check up but they called to cancel because they had too many emergency appointments - I feel for anyone who had airconditioning issues this weekend when it was 113 - they rescheduled for next weekend.
We also had a sale rep from First Impressions come out to give us a quote on a security door. We went for the Technique in New Mahogany (brown) with oil rubbed bronze latch and black bug screen.
After he left I finished setting up the new printer and then went to the container store to get a wall file holder and a chair for my sewing/craft center desk. I wanted something fun, feminine, and bright without being too girly. I recently got this shade for my desk lamp and love its bright pop of color!
I also have some wall boxes with bright, fun items stored in them. So I was looking at this chair from the container store.
I was thinking about the "Pinkberry" color which looks nice in the picture but I wonder if it is too girly. I want a colorful creative place. Pink was the ONLY one they didn't have on display so I could see what kind of pink it was. What do you think? Pink, or blue or green? The green pretty much looks like it does in the picture above, the blue is a bit brighter, and I don't know if it is a dark pink like the picture or a candy pink. I can't decide and now I have to travel to the container store AGAIN! I love that place but it is so far away! While I was there I also picked up this pin to hold wrapping paper but think it might clash with the shade and maybe I should get something different.
Your Highness" which was REALLY stupid but REALLY funny! Definitely NOT okay for kids. There is sexual humor, brief nudity and a whole bunch of cussing but it is a great film for adults! Afterwards I finished printing and framing the pics for the photo wall and I will try to get them set up and hung this week.
Sunday we went out to baseball game. The Diamond backs won and it was great fun. I had hot dogs and even a little bit of cotton candy. We were able to get the tickets fairly cheap and not too far away - we were right behind the D-Back's bull pen. Handsome grilled some corn for me that night and I watched TV and read my book until bed time. My poor husband kept getting the hiccups and nothing he was trying was getting rid of them so I looked it up and had him breathe into a paper bag - he kinda rolled his eyes and thought it was BS but he was willing to try anything... and it WORKED!
On the baby front - I stopped my birthcontrol on Saturday and while I definitely haven't had my cycle day one I could tell my body was getting tired of the birthcontrol - I had some light spotting the past few days even before I stopped the BC. Sunday I started taking the Estradiol (Estrace) twice a day. I will continue taking it twice a day until the 28th when I move up to three times a day. I will definitely keep you updated as more stuff starts happening and will try to make sure not to leave so much time between posts. ttyl
Take Me Out To The Ball Game
"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd;
Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win, it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game."
