A: Bahama Breeze
J: Our first date was at Bahama Breeze, his favorite restaurant
A: In your house
J: At my house, I think? I remember that was where he first came to hang out with me before our first date later that week.
J: It was definitely me. We were still friends, not even dating when I said it.
A: Silver and umm lavender, purple or something
J: They were silver with shades of purple
A: Umm… BYEEEEE
J: Don’t come for me… If I didn’t send for you!. (I feel like someone is always trying to play me).
A: Oh whats his name? umm – one second… Oh my God… Bradley Cooper
J: Channing Tatum
J: Amaretto and OJ for him, Sangria for me.
A: Dag. I have to remember (I am thinking at this point has it been that long).. the spicy shrimp rice whatever (Dirty Rice with Shrimp)
J: Hot Wings
A: That d**n Chili – that joint was like Porridge, I don’t know how you did that.
J: Uhh… I have had a few misses- most recently when I made Chili in the crockpot .. bad idea. I didn’t even eat it.
A: You don’t have an iPod.
J: I don’t even know where my iPod is.
A: The way you hum music! It gets under my skin.
J: The fact that I don’t pick up my clothes, I am sure is driving him nuts! I am not that domestic.
A: Recently, you curl your hair and fart. [REALLY!?]
J: Kiss him goodnight and say I love you before I close my eyes for good that night.
A: I don’t know, everything you wear you just throw… your clothes change every week.
J: He pays zero attention to my clothes – if anything I am sure it would be my Black Toms. I have worn them into the ground.
A: Your Booty! I mean your personality. You’re a beautiful person.
J: He better say something wonderful!
A: Soy Vanilla Chai with something.
J: It changes each time we go – I drink based on how I feel.
A: Hello, Good Morning Sunshine
J: He better get this right! He said he just read it.
You had Questions. I got Answers:
Q: Where are you and your husband at with the fertility situation?
A: Well… let’s see – last I left off I guess it was November – We decided to not so much “try” (read: schedule) anything. We would just see what happens. I still wanted to make sure that we had the best chance possible. I took Clomid 100mgs for November, December and in January I added 150ius of Bravelle (injectable shots that you would take before an IUI) with hopes to by some slim chance still complete my New Years Resolution of conceiving in 2012. Little did I know that it would be so complicated! When it didn’t happen in January, I REALLY tried to suppress my feelings and disappointment about it. It helped that I was super busy in the month of January (read: post-midnight New Years Party, Sorority Centennial, Inauguration, Birthday Parties, Pre-Baby Sunday Dinners) and thankfully, God must know I still need some distractions because my schedule has not slowed down. Once I came out of a fog, I had allowed myself one day to grieve about it. I even started speaking things like, its just not meant to be and its not going to happen. We have two extra bedrooms in our home and one is my office and one is the future nursery. I made plans to fill the future nursery with the biggest furniture so that it could fill the space and I can stop walking past an empty room every day. But thankfully, I prayed and I got my emotions in check. I feel 100% at peace. In short, still not pregnant, but still trying. No immediate plans for going back to the specialist right away but we still speak about children one day being in our home.
Q: What is your short-term goal? What is a long-term goal?
A: My short term goal is to write a book. I want to be finished my first book this year.
A long term goal that I have is to become management in my field.
Q: How are things coming with the house?
A: Well, its funny because I just told my husband that I want to pick a room every 3-6 months so that we don’t get used to just living in the half done mode. We have painted our main living spaces (The Family Room, Kitchen, Hallways, Master Bedroom and Laundry Room) and have tackled a few rooms upstairs. But none are finished completely (Some pictures hung but no room is fully decorated). We also repaint the Master Bathroom again, so that is going to take some time. Other than that no major projects going on right now but hopefully soon.
