Ok so for the first time in my life, I went to church on a Wednesday night. Now you have to understand one thing. I grew up Catholic in Ohio. I didn't even know that people went to church during the week! And for many years the thought of going twice in one week scared me! Let alone going twice on Sunday and once on Wednesday. Are you kidding me????

Well, John Paul grew up Methodist and we had been trying to find a church where we both felt at home. We went to the Catholic church, the Non-Denominational church, we probably would have gone to Church's Chicken if they had held a service there! JP finally asked if we could try the Methodist church. So being the wonderful wife that I am I said, "Sure thing dear!!!!" (ok jk!) We have been visiting for a while now and I really have enjoyed it.

Well on my way home today I had turned the radio off and was actually praying for guidance on different things. The next thing I know I have this thought in my head to go to church tonight. I PRACTICALLY DROVE OFF THE ROAD!!! Where did that come from???? I soon realized that it wasn't my thought at all, someone else put it there!

After the evening festivities we were talking to the pastor and assistant pastor. At that point I found out why I was supposed to go tonight. They need someone to help with the Special Needs children there. Apparently they have been working together to figure out a way to help those families. Before I could even get the sentence out of what I do, the assistant pastor handed me her business card. Thanks God, I needed that!!!!

A Day at the Beach

Yesterday my wonderful husband took Oreo and I to the beach. We had so much fun watching him chase the birds! He was a maniac!!! I'm not sure he's ever had that much fun! I think next time I might find him a surfboard!!! HA HA

Ok so I know that it has been awhile since I have updated on here, sorry!Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday/vacation. I know we sure did but it was very busy.

Well, where do I begin. I went to see Dr. Winslow at The Firm last month. He scheduled an HSG to see if my tubes were blocked. The dye went quickly through the right side but not the left side. When I went back for my follow up last week, he said that it could have just been a spasm or there may be some scar tissue from a previous surgery. He told me that I have Polycycstic Ovarian Syndrome, (PCOS) which I was not aware of. Because of this he has decided that we will go ahead and do Insemination. So I get to be lucky enough to give myself shots of hormones to produce eggs that will hopefully meet up with the "swimmers" and make a bambino! I pitty John Paul because I'm sure I will be a raging lunatic during this time!!! Wish me luck ;-) (and JP! Hope he makes it through my crazy hormonal days!!!)
