Babies, Babies, Babies Everywhere!   Leave a comment

For awhile TJ & I have been talking about having a baby. I got my tubes tied 10 years ago after I had my daughter Ashley. I was married to my ex & I thought we were going to stay together. Well that was not the case.

I have been with TJ for over 9 years now. He doesn’t have any kids of his own. I know he would like to have kids some day. I would really like to have another baby someday. I knew when I got my tubes tied that it was a mistake. I was very young when I did it. I was 22 years old.

I was 22 years old with 3 kids. I really thought I was done having babies. Well I guess I thought wrong. TJ is scared to have a baby with me. His sister had to failed pregnancies. He is afraid that something is going to happen to me if I get pregnant & something happens. His sister was in her middle 30’s.

I am 32 right now. We have been looking online & doing some research. We have found a place that we want to go to. The name of the place is Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center. I have done a lot of research on this place. They have been founded since 1979.

Women come from all over the world to go there to get their tubal Reversed. They have a very high success rate of pregnancy.

For women between the ages of 30-34 their success rate to get pregnant is 73%. For women between the ages of 35-39 their success rate to get pregnant is 64%.
The place is in North Carolina. A 12 hour drive from here. The cost is $5900. I know the cost is a little high but it isn’t that bad.

We have been talking about this for awhile now. I am going to call them to talk to them. We have some questions about it. TJ’s biggest question is “What is the risk?” That is one of my questions to.

I know you have to be a certain weight or something to do the surgery. Your BMI has to be less then 37. Right now I’m at a 34. I plan on being much less by the time we plan on doing the surgery. I want to make sure that there isn’t going to be any problems with the surgery due to my weight.

They even have a pre-payment plan. You can open a account there & make payments when you can. That is one of my questions.

There are things we have to do here first before we think about calling them. I know it is going to take a while before we can do this. Just thought I would talk to someone else about it. Someone that has done it before. What was it like? How long did it take you to get pregnant after the surgery? It would be nice to hear some stories.

November 10, 2011: Day from Hell!   1 comment

Yesterday was the day from Hell. I woke up like any other day. Went to the store to get stuff for breakfast. I didn’t have much time. Got home & ate breakfast then went to Walmart to drop off my medicine.

I asked how much my medicine was going to be before I left. I did the same thing on Monday. Both times they told me that it was going to cost $30.42. I said thanks & went to work.

On my lunch break I went back to Walmart to get my medicine. I had to wait in line. There was only 1 register open & there was 6 people in line. I was in a hurry since I only have a 30 minute lunch break.

When it was my turn to go up there I told the lady that I was there to pick up my medicine. I told her my name & birthday. She told me that there was 2 ready for me & asked me which one I wanted. I told her I wanted the $30 one. She was looking for my medicine & found it. She told me the total was going to be $50.27. I said thats not what the lady told me when i dropped it off. I was pissed off. I told them that they need to get their facts straight & start telling me the real price. That was the second time this week that they told me the wrong price. That’s when the bad day started.

I got back to work & it went all down hill from there. We have this new thing at work with the registers. They are keeping track of the voids & coupons. If you are over the % of voids then you get a warning. If you get 3 in 1 month then you get written up. I’m not sure how many write ups you get before you get fired. I will have to look into that. My drawer was great at 4 o’clock. But my other drawer was not when it came to 7 o’clock.

I got home to a nice hot homemade cooked meal that my hubby made. It was great. Then my daughter ran me a hot bath.

When I got into the bath it was kind of cold so i had my daughter heat some water on the stove. We didn’t have hot water for some reason. As she was pouring hot water in the tub i dropped my phone into the tub. That was the last straw for me.

I took the phone out of the tub & took the battery out and dried it off. I put the battery back in the phone & turned it on to see if it still worked. My husband took my phone & tried to make it work. There was still water in it. He took the battery out & got all the water out of the phone. He even put the phone in the stove for a little bit to get it to dry out. As of this morning all the buttons work. There is a little glitch in the phone. I’m hoping that it will go away. I’m taking my phone to work to see how it works on wifi.

I hope my day is going to be better then yesterday. We will see.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.

November 8, 2011: Laundry Mat Dreamscape   Leave a comment

Today I was woken up to my daughter calling my name. I had to drive her to school for her student council meeting. I was so happy she woke me up. I was in the middle of a nightmare.

My nightmare was about some guy that was haunting us. We had a swat team come into our house. It was not a good dream.

I made steak & eggs for breakfast. It was good. Then after breakfast I did some laundry at the laundry mat. When we go to the laundry mat we use 2 big washers. One washer can hold 2 baskets of clothes. When I went there today one was out of order so I had to wait for my first load to stop before I could clean my last load. I hate doing laundry. It is so boring.

My day was pretty boring. Tomorrow I’m going to Walmart to get some more medicine. I’m going to get my inhaler on my break. I need one.

November 7, 2011: What a Bad Day!   Leave a comment

Today didn’t start out right at all. When our alarm went off at 5:30 this morning we didn’t get up. TJ had a very bad Migraine and I was super tired. We went to bed after midnight.

I woke up around 9 & made breakfast. I went to Walmart before I went to work to drop off some medicine. I was suppose to be on sandwiches but I switched to back window. When I’m on sandwiches I sometimes have a asthma attack so I try not to be put there.

When I got to work I remembered I forgot my lunch at home. Someone gave me a apple to eat for lunch. It was better then nothing.

On my break I went to cash my check & get gas for the car. I was running on fumes. After I got gas I went to Walmart to get my medicine. When I got my RX I go to Walmart to get the prices of them so I know how much they are.

When I went to get my medicine I told them who I was and I had to pick up my medicine. I was thinking my medicine was going to be $9. She looked me up & told me that my medicine was $194.44. I said “What? I only got 1 medicine.” She repeated it again. I told her that I couldn’t afford that. I think that is crazy.

I am out of medicine & don’t have any inhaler. I was pissed when I left Walmart. My night didn’t get any better until I got home.

November 6, 2011: Extra Hour of Sleep   1 comment

Good morning there peeps. Sorry I haven’t blogged in a couple of days. Friday night I got off of work a little late & didn’t feel like blogging when I got home. Nothing happened on Friday anyways.

Yesterday I slept in until 11. That felt great. This whole week we have been getting up at 5:30 so it felt great to sleep in.

We made chocolate chip & m&m cookies yesterday with the girls. They taste great. I let the girls spoon the dough on the cookie sheet. So, we have some big cookies & some small cookies. We have to have a glass of milk when we eat them.

Last night TJ made some great stuffed cheeseburgers. They were big. Those of you that are friends with me on Facebook should have seen the picture that I put up. Yummy!

Not sure what is happening today. I think we are just going to watch some movies.

I hope everyone changed their clocks back. My phone changed on it’s own. I had to change the clock in the girls room last night before we went to bed.

It felt great to sleep in this morning. I just didn’t like the time that the clock said when I looked at it. I know what time it would have been if I didn’t change the clock. Is did we get a extra hour of sleep or not? That still confuses me.

Everyone is awake except TJ. He is still sleeping. When he wakes up we will have some breakfast.

November 3, 2011: Lazy Day   Leave a comment

This morning we got up at 5:30. TJ made breakfast. We had oatmeal, toast, & a banana. It was good.

After breakfast we went back to bed. I had a weird dream. I dreamed that I was at least 6 months pregnant with a boy & didn’t know it until I went to the hospital. I could feel the baby move & kick me. It was so awesome.

We had the normal for lunch. A tangerine, banana, & yogurt.

For dinner TJ made homemade chicken noodle soup with homemade mashed taters. That was a great dinner.

I was going to go for a walk tonight since it was kind of nice outside but I didn’t. I was helping TJ with dinner.

This weekend I plan on making cookies with the girls. I think they will like that.

I just did nothing today. Oh I did take a nice hot relaxing bath. I love taking baths. I don’t know why I told you that.

Thanks for taking the time to read my blog.

November 2, 2O11: Buckle up. It’s healthy for you.   Leave a comment

Today was a good day. We got up around 5:30 am. Well, I woke up when the alarm went off but didn’t get out of bed. I layed there thinking if I wanted to get up or not. T.J. got up a little after 6 am. TJ said “Honey, why didn’t I get up? I didn’t hear the alarm go off.” I said “The alarm went off. You turned it off.”

T.J. made a great breakfast. We had steak egg & cheese bagels with orange juice & a banana. They were really good.

After we ate breakfast & Stephi went off to school I went back to bed.

For lunch I ate a banana, tangerine, & yogurt. That was a good lunch.

When I came home from work I ate BBQ chicken, baked tater, & corn for dinner. That was good.

I would have worked out but I think I broke the exercise bike last night. When you pedal you can hear the wheel grinding. It doesn’t sound good. I think it is time to get a new bike.

Yesterday when I was working I saw a 5 year old little girl sitting in the front seat of a car not buckled up. She kept moving around. Really? Parents know better then to have your kids not buckled up. Come on, do you really want something to happen? Here is the question. Do you say something or not? You know it isn’t your business but you don’t want something bad to happen. That is a hard question to ask.
