All About Me :)

My photo
I was born in Sitka, Alaska in 1983. My parents divorced when I was 5, and I spent my childhood and teens moving back and forth between parents. So, I grew up in Anchorage, Sitka, and Juneau. But, I call Sitka home. I graduated in 2000. I should have gone to college - but didn't. I met my husband in 2002, let him marry me in 2003 :), and had a daughter with him in 2004. She is the pure JOY in our lives. My husband is AD in the United States Coast Guard. This means that life is never boring, and if it is- hey! we get to move every 3 or 4 years. He is currently a DC (Damage Controlman) 2nd class - working on making 1st class. You can also find me on

*Dust Needed*

As of today we're officially on the 2WW, we need lots of baby dust, and sticky vibes :)
Love you all!

I am Clomid woman, hear me roar! Lol
Back on Clomid. Last pill was.. two nights ago. DH has been doing better this month, than the last month I was on it. I think he knew more of what to expect, as did I.
I'd just tell him when I was having crabby moments, or my headache, or the DAMN hot flashes.
UGH! With this little preview of them, I am NOT looking forward to Menopause. Not one bit!

So, I'm really hoping that this month works, and the baby is awfully sticky. I want to complain in the very near future "Why did I do this?" - and, I will. I was that sick with DD, and I'll get that sick again. I'm trying not to have it stuck in my head, but... it's there.
Hardest way to lose 25 pounds, but hey... kill two birds with one stone so to speak, haha!

On a more serious note, I need to have some of the stress that's going on to STOP. My psychotic SIL will be sentenced this month. On the 15th to be precise. It's really taken a toll on our family. There are so many issues, so much anger, and a LOT of different opinions.
The bottom line though, is that if you harm a child - you deserve to rot in jail. Which she did, and she will.
There is one good thing that has came of this, and that's that I have met a new friend. I'm not going to oust her on here (smile), but she knows who she is. She's a great gal who has done very well with all the things she's had to deal with. She's very fun, sweet, and even better when she drinks ;)

Dreamsheet time is just around the corner, my stomach is in knots, and it hasn't even officially started yet! Our billets have changed, which was to be expected.
DH did not pass the EPME, so he won't be sitting on the servicewide in November.
It's a bummer because it would be nice to have 1st class paychecks, BUT it's going to make it easier and less complicated for us and our dreamsheet. We just have to stick to 2nd class billets.
The thoughts of going LORAN are still weighing heavily on us. If I get pregnant now, it would mean him missing the birth of our 2nd child. I would be near family, and friends - so, I know that I would be alright... but I can't help but think that at that moment the child is born, would we seriously regret our decision.
There are SO many factors that have us thinking about doing this, and the big one is being able to be back in Alaska. We don't necessarily have to take a LORAN to get back up there, but it would be nice to have him take the LORAN for a year, and then *hopefully* be able to slide in to the open DC1 billet in Sitka that will be open in 2010.
Then again, Kodiak is STILL on the list for us. DH has wanted to go there since he joined the CG, and I've always wanted to be there because.. well, who the hell doesn't want to at least SEE Kodiak when you're affiliated with the Coast Guard.
So, Kodiak is definitely an option for us. And, we'd both be more than thrilled to get it.
The other place that's open is Cordova. Now, my Mom tells me that I've been to Cordova - but um, she was pregnant with me, so it doesn't count!! Lol.
I don't know anything about Cordova - so I'm going to start researching that place. I know it's small.. but.. I can deal with small. Not an issue here.
I was sad to see that nthing is open for us (as of now anyways) for WA. It could open up, since we all know THE SITE keeps changing, and will until it's officially open for Dreamsheets.
Warrenton, OR is open for us also. No hurt feelings on that either... I love me some Oregon!

So, that's where were at right now. I need some loves here, because I'm not sure how many more times I can do this Clomid thing. Mucho respect for you gals who have done it for LOOOONG periods of time. I find it's effects absolutely miserable.

We need a baby, and we need it to stick!!
