We're in our house!

We started moving two weekends ago and have been officially in our house since then. I'm slow to updating due to lack of internet connection for a week and then just getting by the next week through work and every evening being busy with something going on.

We're enjoying the projects that we want to do around the house. Like painting and texturing walls. I hope our living room gets put back together soon. I miss sitting on my couches and enjoying my coffee and reading a book. We do have the master bedroom all painted and definetly looks lived in. I started painting the walls in the hallway, which I should be finishing since it is my day off work but I'm waiting for Johnny to get home instead. hehe.

Little by little, isn't that how it's suppose to go. So far we are only living in our kitchen, master bath and bedroom and we do have internet and our computers in there place, in the office. Of course we will have to take everything out of said office when we get to painting those walls too. Oh yes almost forgot. Our t.v. is in the bedroom so we can at least watch a show from time to time and our DVD's that we have been getting through Netflix.

I think that's about it. Love the neigborhood. Nice and quiet during the day and full of kiddos running around the street in the evening. Now on to the next chapter of our lives!

Summer Update

So we're half way through our summer. Or maybe I should say my summer break. We went to Central California for the fourth of July and hung out with my mom's side of the family. It was really alot of fun. That's about it for the exciting things we've done for summer. LOL we're regular old party animals. haha.

Anyways, the results from all that blood work I had done was pretty much all good news. I'm a healthy 28 year old woman...except that I have too many follicles on my ovaries and is preventing me to ovulate. So the doctor has diagnosed PCOS (polyistic ovarian syndrome). I've started taking Metformin twice a day to keep the bad follicles flowing so I am actually menstrating. And the medicine is working. Now I have to keep my eyes open and alert to get the ovulation timing correct and hopefully Johnny and I will be able to start a family soon. Keep your fingers crossed it all works out. If this medicine doesn't work I'll go see a fertility specialist where they will most likely start me on Clomid. I'm just hoping it doesn't take that long. hehe.

Onto the update on house hunting...oh my goodness. I didn't realize how hard it was gonna be. We found a house and we put an offer on it and mysteriously there happened to be 2 other offers at the same exact time. Needless to say it's not going to work out so we're back to square one. Ugh, I just wish that our house was out there right now. It's like finding a diamond in the ruff. So many to look at to find our gem. I'm hoping to find our gem sooner rather than later cuz I'm stressing myself out and get depressed when there's no new houses on the market.

Ohh and stress isn't good if I'm trying to concieve so I was hoping to have less stress but I've managed to add stress to my life. I'm actually looking forward to working again at the end of August. It honestly can't come soon enough. LOL

Oh yes, I almost forgot. Johnny talked me into trading in my Xterra, which I love to death and would have never gotten rid of it for anything, for a pickup truck. All my friends were appalled cuz they knew how much I loved my guess is that I must really love my husband. And now I'm training myself to be calm and confident in driving a manual car. Cuz I think he's more in love with the truck than the car now. So the mazda is mine, which I have anxieties driving and the truck is his. LOL

okay time to get off...he wants to go for ice cream!

Update on Life

Haven't been on much...and not much to say.

Johnny and I are getting back to life and planning on our next adventures in life. We have decided that's it's a good idea to start looking for a house to buy. I'm excited to be able to focus on something so big this summer when I'm not working.

We have also decided to start working on adding to our family. So far, I have been to the doctor's to give my blood for a bunch of tests to make sure I'm healthy as can be.

Hopefully I'll have more fun things to update this summer and fall!

Ready and Wait

Homecoming is coming upon us with in the week to say the least. I've been driving myself crazy this past week knowing he's so close and not able to come back yet. I've got my homecoming outfit ready, and I have found time to clean my house and help out a family move into their new one. I even bought Johnny a new car. 2005 Mazda 3! It's not exactly ours pending. I'll show off his car once I know it's ours!

I should try and figure out how to get my car clean...actually I should just do it myself but i don't want to. hehe.

oh yes I almost forgot to write about getting my new job! I now am a permanent employee for Early Intervention. Not sub, not temporary. I'm too excited! It's right where I want to be.

Another birthday has passed me by this month too! I went shopping for a homecoming outfit for my birthday. I'm waiting to do more with my lovely husband when he gets home.

I'm hoping to take some homecoming pictures so hopefully I can share!

Being Lazy

I wanted to share pictures from my short trip to California, BUT....I'm being lazy about it. I haven't downloaded the pictures to my computer yet. I wanted to say that I truly did enjoy myself.
I enjoyed spending time with my dad on his 50th birthday and watching the Super Bowl Game. I enjoyed spending time with my mom and getting hot stone massage. Going shopping trying to find curtains for the new things Johnny and I bought for our living room. I even enjoyed having breakfast with my mom before heading to the airport and going back to Oregon.
I enjoyed playing with my 3 nieces and letting my sister and her husband go to a movie.
I enjoyed going shopping with my sister and helping her cook(the one time. LOL)

Now that I'm back in Oregon, I'm getting ready for Johnny to come home in April/May. We are starting to plan mini vacations and what to do with our summer. We will be figuring out what step to take in life when he gets home too. He's looking forward to going to school and I couldn't support him enough in this new step in our lives.
I'm also busy with my new temporary full-time job with Early Interventions. I'm glad to be working consistently during the week and am enjoying working in 2 different classrooms. I'll be looking forward to more hours, I hope, in the start of the school year in September.

That's just a short update on our lives and the direction we are going in the beginning of this year!

Nina and Shane's Wedding

Today Nina and Shane got married. I'm so happy and thrilled to be apart of something so awesome. They are so great for each other.

We started off by having the bachlorette party on the 9th of January by going down to Eugene and dancing the night away. We waited to have the bridal shower until the last minute so out of town family would beable to join in. It was a fabulous time.

I just now realized I have not taken any pictures of any of these events. Needless to say my blog is lacking on the picture side of things. oh well, I had fun and although I cried cuz I was sad Johnny wasn't able to join us in the celebration it was an awesome wedding.

Nina and Shane Furlong,"Johnny and I love you so much and are so thrilled to see our friends so happy."

Happy 2010

Johnny and I brought in the New Year in Pacific City, Oregon. We enjoyed ourselves at Molly got to tag along too. Although stormy we managed to keep ourselves entertained with the good seafood and walking around the Tillamook Cheese Factory. We managed to get some fudge and taffy while there too.

When we got home we started cleaning up the house to bring in our new furniture. Pictures to follow, cuz Johnny's on my computer playing video games and I'm to lazy to go grab the camera and download to his laptop. We've stayed busy this r&r and plan on being lazy and enjoying this time before he leaves to go back to Iraq at the end of the week. But no worries because he'll be home for good in May.

I am excited to see what 2010 will bring for our family and friends.
