Jay and I at the Grove Park Inn restaurant
Jaimie and Jimmy

Jay and I

I hope that everyone had a lovely Christmas. Jay and I did. It is so nice to spend time with his family on Christmas. They are the best family I could ever have hoped for. Jay's mom got me a food processor. I do not know if you have ever witnessed a food processor shredding a block of cheese but it is absolutely amazing! Jay paid for our trip to Biltmore for Christmas and that was so much fun and we got to share it with two of our great friends.

And as a follow up to my Practicing the Art of Letting Go Post, we are going to take a break from TTC for a little while. We need to fcous on other things.

Some things you may or may not know about me

1) I am a pessimist. I always have been and always will be.
2) I was a tom-boy growing up and spent much of my time in a large magnolia tree in my front yard.
3) In the past 4 years my husband and I have custom built a house, sold it moved to a new city and remodeled another house.
4) Halloween is my favorite holiday.
5) I have owned 5 cars in 12 years. A ford escort, buick, chevy cavalier, chrysler sebring and now a honda civic.
6) Though I am a teacher I did horrible in school. Not just high school, middle and elementary. I was lucky to have graduated high school. I now know that it was because I was lazy and did not try at all.
7) I took ballet for 3 years.
8) My mom could only get me to go sleep if she sat with me and rubbed my back.
9) I am very gullible. I believe anyone I love.
10) I hate shaving my legs, it is one of those things you have to do and it is gross if you don't but I hate doing it.

All those who feel happy please stand up

Oh, Oh not so fast Kim...
One of my friends called me last night to warn me that another teacher I know is pregnant. It really upset me on several different levels. But, mainly it made me pissed off at my friend who decided it would be best to tell me this information before I "found out from someone else". This teacher is obviously not telling anyone yet since it is a secret and now I have to walk around with this secret information. Not only that but I am not even at school, why share this information with me knowing it would upset me? Why not wait to tell me after the holidays were over? I am so over some people...

I got Baptized today. It was a very meaningful ceremony and my in-laws and husband were there supporting me. Also, the sermon today was focused on wanting something in your future so bad that you forget to enjoy the present. The sermon spoke to me on many different levels. It was a great day.

My new obsession

The funny part is that I thought all of these girls were crazy to swoon over this book and the main character. I read the first book, thinking I am going to read this book and see what all of the hype is about. I also thought, it can't be that good. Boy, was I wrong.

Yes, this is my new obsession. I can sit and read these books for hours. I actually said to my husband this morning that I was thinking about skipping church so I could read about vampires. Ironic huh? Anyway, I made Jay take me to see Twilight the movie. Of course it was not as good as the book. But the more I thought about the more I realized that there was no way it could be as good as the book. These books could not have come into my life at a better time. Today I finished the second book New Moon and I can't wait to read the rest.

Practicing the Art of Letting Go

The title of this post says alot. I am trying to practice the art of letting go. I have stopped taking my temperature each morning and using FF. I am trying to only use my CBEFM for this cycle. After this cycle I think we may take a break. I am tired of not being me and having my act together because my world has revolved around TTC. It is time to be me again. I am picking myself up off the floor and I am determined to be happy, even if that means without a baby.
