I went into surgery on Monday morning to remove the rest of the tissue with a D&C. Everything went well, and I am on the road to recovery. I should be physically recoverd tomorrow.....Emotionally, not so much...That's going to take some time.
I don't have words to explain how I feel. I can honestly say though that I am glad this is all over with. I was tired to knowing, then not knowing. At least we can FINALLY move on.

The nice thing though is all of the kids in her class live really close together(4 of us all live on the same road). Most of the kids are also in her primary class at church.
I have to admit, it has been pretty nice just having Ethan in the mornings two times a week. He's pretty mellow, so we just hang out, have breakfast together and play alittle before sister gets home.

There have been a couple things on my mind lately that I just want to talk about. I know I should just leave something like this for my journal, but I feel like I need to blog this.
Eric and I have been trying to get pregnant for a year now....This is a shock for those of you who are closest to us. With Baeya, we concieved her right away, but with Ethan we had to have drug intervention....I am just so frustrated because it was so easy with Baeya. Our first try and BAM she was on the way. After her my body just quit working. I don't ovulate. My body is taking my eggs hostage. I don't get it. I keep making up excuses for not being pregnant yet, like I need to loose weight first (which is probably true), or we don't want anymore, or something along those lines, but the truth is, I want another baby. I see my friends and neighbors with their babies(and believe me, around here, there are ALOT) and just ache.
I don't feel like I have the right to "whine" either because I know those who have not experienced child birth and want to so badly. I feel like I should just be happy with the children i have and just leave it be. True is though that I can actually feel my spirit aching to bring another child to this world. I now understand more clearly the meaning of "the spirit is willing but the flesh is weak."
The other thing that has bothered me lately is money. No, we are not exactly "struggling" but we are certainly tight. When I got my job it was just to create some mad money, but now it will all be going to bills. Which is fine, but the bills keep adding up. we keep accumilating bills no matter what we do. Just little things here and there and those things just keep adding up. One thing that bothers me is that we are paying a hefty amount per month on tithing. I feel like that money could be better used on catching up on bills. It's hard to see that money go when I don't feel like we are getting the "blessings" that are suppose to come. It's hard when you know a person who doesn't have the same standards as you who doesn't pay tithing, and see them complaining about all the extra money they are getting. They have "too much to know what to do with." It torks my toes!
I don't know, I guess I am just on a spiritual low. It's hard for me because I am doing all the things you are "suppose" to do, but I am just can't shake it. I am not a typical church member; my house isn't clean, my kids don't behave most of the time, I yell at my kids (which I am positive why half of my neighbors don't talk to me), I have different theological ideals than most members, I get angry, I have a past, I have questions...and yet through it all, have a close relationship with Christ. I don't see myself as a bad member.

I am going to be making phone calls tomorrow to pawn shops and I may call the police.
I thought that maybe we put it somewhere in the house, but I have torn my house apart and it's not anywhere to be seen. I thought that maybe my kids hid it somewhere....nothing.
Why does this stuff happen to me? Would you all keep an eye out on craigslist and other places? It's a Cannon Rebel XT DSLR with a telephoto lens, card reader, extra card along with many other things, all wrapped up in a Targus camera bag.
PS: My BRAND NEW sunglasses were in the bag too......gggrrrrrr!!!

lazy people with self esteem/value/respect issues, who have given up on themselves, fashion and style that live in over sized t-shirts, sweatpants, black leggings, or think pajama pants are appropriate "going out" attire. Most recently brought to our attention on Oprah, the schlumpadinka is, in most urban centers, an epidemic. For example: The woman in front of you at the gas station/coffee shop/ family restaurant line wearing an outdated windbreaker, some grungy, saggy sweatpants, usually with an outdated hairstyle that is unkempt. Looks like she was probably doing some housecleaning, or perhaps painting her living room. Alas, this is her everyday attire. You speculate, that perhaps she is homeless, or at least low-income. Unfortunately, she's just lazy and doesn't care about her appearance.
I think I would probably fit this description. I was watching Oprah and she had Lloyd Boston, a style expert on. He was giving makeovers and also gave some GREAT advice on fashion. One list he made was 10 staples every woman should have in her closet...I thought I would share them with all of you:

1. Eric had a letter come in the mail about his security clearance at work. Come to find out he's a UK citizen. So were weren't sure if he will have to pay $1000 to renounce his UK citizenship or if he will just get his clearance.
2. We went to Utah for memorial day weekend to visit my life-long friend Nicole and her family.
3. Our car died while we were in Utah and we had to buy a new one while we were down there. (BTW, Baeya calls our new car the "American Idol" car)
4. We got to go to the Hogle Zoo in SLC!!!! Totally FUN!!!!
5. We came home to a mostly finished FENCE!!!! And it was completed last week!!! The kids and dog LOVE the new freedom.
6. ERIC GOT HIS CLEARANCE TODAY!!!! WOO HOO!!! Now we just need to get him to be a certified SRE

So, when we bought our house, we added on a fence to the cost. We were told that we would have a fence by March....the weather was bad so it's understandable that there was no way a fence would be in. April we called and we were promised a fence by the end if that month. The 30th rolled around....NO FENCE....I was getting ticked so I called for about the third or fourth time. FINALLY some guys came in and put in posts.....
Posts are all we've had for THREE WEEKS. We have been calling every week and keep getting the run around; People telling us we will get a call back abd never do, people telling us we will get a fence by a certain day and that day passes and....NO FENCE...the latest news is that we were promised a fence by this last Tuesday and.....you guessed it!!! NO FENCE!!! Eric called ysterday with no answers given and I called today about an hour ago and I am just waiting for a response....don't worry...I'm not holding my breath....

|You Are Garlic|
You get long with pretty much everyone, and you leave a lasting impression.
You adapt yourself well to situations. You can fit in or stand out, depending on what you're called on to do.
