Yearly Re-Cap & New Resolutions

Last year I made a few resolutions.  As expected I failed miserably. 

Skinny - Epic Failure.  Instead of losing weight I gained it.  I am well on my way to being a fat girl.  130 lbs isn't that much worse than 120 lbs right?

Tidy -  The only one I didn't completely screw up.  I mean right NOW my house is destroyed, but that is due to a combination of trying to put Christmas decorations away and packing (more on that later).  I have done a lot better at keeping the house clean, although I am still no where near where I would like to be.

Well-Read (reading the Bible) - Another epic failure. On the same note I did go to church quite a bit this year.

For 2012 I decided to make a list of things I would LIKE to do.  But its just a list of potential things, which I want to do, but if I get even a couple of them done I will be happy.

-HAVE A BABY - This is my number one goal, but one that I have pretty much no control over.
-Lose 10 lbs
-Lose 20 lbs
-Lose 30 lbs
-Drink 2 glasses of water a day - Okay I am never going to get to 8 like I am supposed to, so two is a start.
-Keep my house clean(er)
-Read the New Testament
-Read the whole Bible


  1. OH, I love your list. I should do this. Our number ones are the same - have a baby. I would also like to get better about reading my Bible every day. We should hold each other accountable? What do you think. We haven't forgotton about the Dave Ramsey thing, just trying to figure out a couple things first.

  2. We should definitely hold each other accountable. How do you propose we go about that? A reading plan we both follow? Just checking in every so often?

Things That Annoy Infertile Girls (or Maybe Just Me?) - Flashback Friday

This was actually one of my more popular posts when it was first published, but I still thought I would share it again.  Any additions to the post are in pink, as usual :)

Accidental Pregnancies - So I have been trying for years to get pregnant, you go slut around and accidentally get pregnant? Immediate Pregnancies - You quit taking your birth control last month and now you are pregnant? People Who Give You Retarded Advice -           - Just stop trying and you will get pregnant
           - My friend adopted a baby and got pregnant right away, you should do that
           - Get drunk, people always get pregnant when they are drunk (Yes, they do. Because they are
             intoxicated and forget to take precautions.)
Whiny Girls That Pretend They Are Infertile - Trying for 5 months is not suffering from infertility. It takes a year on average to get pregnant.  I get that it might FEEL like infertility but it just isn't.  After YEARS of trying, I can't even remember what tr…

Is Mother Goose Time Worth The Money?

Last night my husband asked me if I thought that Mother Goose Time was worth the money if I didn't get it for free.  I think this is an excellent question, and one that people probably want to know.

How Much Does It Cost?:
Mother Goose Time costs $75 a month for one child, including shipping if you buy it month to month.  If you can order and pre-pay ahead of time, you can save up to 15%, depending on how far ahead you pre-pay.  If you have more than one child using the curriculum it is only about $5 a month to add a child.  Many of the products provided cover the entire class, including manipulatives and story books.  The things that each child needs come packaged in their own bag for each child.

What I Think of the Curriculum:
The curriculum is great.  It is thorough and engaging.  It provides me with ideas and supplies to teach my son things I never would have thought to teach him, but will make him a very well rounded person.  He now talks about things he never would have talked…

Everything You (N)Ever Wanted to Know About "Mama Cloth"

Remember how I said I was a crazy hippie??  I believe I crossed the threshold from crunchy to crazy in February when I ordered some cloth menstrual pads.

I decided that it was ridiculous that I was putting all kinds of chemicals on -or even IN- a mucous membrane for at least 15% of my (non)child-bearing years!  Mucous membranes are absorbent and I don't really want to absorb extra chemicals for no good reason.  I have heard that the disposable kind are so irritating to your vaginal lining that most people bleed for a day or two less once they switch to reusable.  Since my period has a mind of its own, I highly doubt I will ever notice this...

So I decided to buy some of the reusable sort.  I thought about a Diva Cup, but didn't want to invest the $40 on something I might hate.  I knew that even if I didn't love pads I would still use them, at least sometimes.  The main problem I ran into was that they are FLIPPING EXPENSIVE!  I mean over the course of time they are much ch…
