**This blog was originally created in 2010 to document my husband and my life as we tried to get pregnant with our first child. After finding BDSM I repurposed the blog in 2014 to look at our kink and balancing it with the two children we now have. Please feel free to read the below posts and any from my 2010 and 2011 archive, but please be aware that they are not representative of our life now. Also, certain edits have been made to these posts. To start from the beginning of our kinky life, start here. **
So I have given up coffee; one of my favorite things. Hoping to instill a “new me” approach to my life. And I’m sure the caffeine was stunting my growth, or staining my teeth, or something. But I am trying.
Things have been pretty hectic lately. D is in the middle of exams. He’s doing well, but I think the break will be good for him. I’ve been busy with work and Christmas. I only have one more person to shop for, and I don’t know what I will buy her, but I will make it work. When I was at my parents for Thanksgiving I brought back a lot of scrap fabric squares. Those have made for an interesting project, but it is keeping me busy.
The baby front is an unyielding war. We’ll see what this month brings, but I am already preparing myself. Looking on the bright side, D will be free to choose any summer internship and not worry about a baby. However, our summer plan is out, so if we do get pregnant in the next few months, I will be a hot fat lady this summer. But, more time gives us more chances to sort things out. Trying to come up with daycare solutions and a car, the more time the better. I am glad that we should have sorting out our housing situation by then. Whether we buy or not, we should be moved and settled.
Our new challenge has been the dogs and the cold. They have been put in the cages when D leaves as the temperature outside is too low. I think they are just getting stressed out. Andes has been snapping at Toby and he’s getting really timid around her. The barking matches have been freaking me out and I have been getting aggravated. Hopefully they will calm down as D will be home for the next few weeks. He will only be going to campus for a few hours the next few days and for his exams.
So, as we enter into the holiday season things will pick up. I have about half of the wrapping done. Money is getting tight fast, but we’ll make it work. We always make it work.
