I started another round of my medication for the tumor last night.. and I am feeling really sick this morning! I'm sipping on some 7up, hoping that it will help soothe my stomach. So far, it's not working. The worst part is that I am stuck at school all day today- until 5:30. I just want to go home, put on some sweat pants, and crawl into bed... I hope this day goes by fast.

Getting a house!

Well... We are buying a house! We signed the contract last Sunday and get the keys in two weeks. We are very excited.. Having three dogs in an apartment has been a little crazy. Plus, this house is a pretty big size and has plenty of room for a baby.. or two. ;)

As far as any updates with my IF stuff: None really. Originally, I was going to be having an MRI around this time, but the Dr. has decided that she wants me to do another round of medication for the tumor. I'll be on that for another month and then we'll figure out where to go from there.. An MRI or another round of meds, I'm not sure..

But, when we move in the house, I have already chosen the room that will be the nursery. I've got to think positive, right? Yes, some days are easier than others. But having Mason (our newest addition- a Border Collie) has taken my mind off of the constant wonder of when we are going to be able to get pregnant. Mason had his back leg amputated and I have been taking care of him during his recovery..

So, our big news at the moment is that we are buying a house.. and I am satisfied with this at the moment! :)

Puppymill Awareness Day!

Today is Puppymill Awareness Day! Please take a few minutes to watch this video. It is graphic, but people need to be educated and see what these animals go through.

If you have any questions or want more information, let me know.. Let's do our part to stop this horrible treatment!

Our three boys are rescue dogs and we wouldn't have it any other way!

I realize it's been awhile since I've blogged. Life has been a little hectic. I am back in school, full swing. So, I've always got something that I can be doing. We've got a ton of papers, projects, demonstrations, etc. due this semester, so I always have something to work on.

Two Wednesdays ago, we picked up a Border Collie/Shelter mix that we were going to foster. He was picjed up as a stray and had to have his leg amputated. We got him the night he was released from the vet's office and was going to foster him for 2 weeks until he went to a rescue. Long story short, we're keeping him. I think he would make an amazing therapy dog, so that's what he's going to do.. We're meeting with a trainer next Saturday to get him enrolled in some classes.

He's still got his stictches in the incision, but will get them out this Thursday...

Christian is currently golfing with a friend. James is coming over later to watch the Gators football game.. which means that I will spend time working on school stuff. I'm not a fan of sitting around, watching football.

I go in a couple of weeks for a second MRI. I'm hoping that the tumor has shrunk. Guess I'll just have to wait and see...
