About Me

A very old picture of me

HI! My name is Rachel! Thanks so much for stopping by and visiting. I really appreciate you taking the time to read my blog, and please know that I read each and every comment, and make a sincere effort to reply to them.

I am 30 years old and have been happily married for 10 years. My husband and I live in a small town in Oregon. We bought a house 2012 with plans to fix it up, but so far it looks very, very similar to when we moved in.

I am a conservative Christian and try to put God first, but don't always succeed at that. I am also a wannabe hippie. Which basically means that I do weird things like use "mama cloth", but I still love to drink soda and eat McDonald's.

I am a housewife, which I love.  I am not very good at it, as in my house is never very clean and my meals are very random.  I have one little boy, whom I call Little Guy on my blog, he is four, and such a joy.  If you click on the following link, you can read my infertility story.

I am not a super awesome writer, but I really enjoy writing, and hope you enjoy reading what I write. I also hope that I can help other people who are going through infertility know that other people are going through it with them. Something that I would love to do (but fail miserably at) is write really great posts on Biblical topics, but I am prone to rambling when I try.


  1. Hey, Rachel! Love your blog! May you please contact me at as I'd love to chat more with you about it? I'd greatly appreciate it! :)

    Thanks so much!

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…
