The middle of the week always seems to go by slowly. So does the beginning of the week though actually. & then the weekends speed by in a second... haha! Really though! This week has been pretty busy at work. I like it so much better when it's busy because it goes by so much more quickly. My husband (N) & I lead a cubscout group for church & yesterday at pack meeting we were in charge of dessert. I got 4 dozen assorted donuts at our local donut shop & the boys were in heaven! I had so many of them come up and say, "thank you for bringing the donuts" & "donuts were a great idea"! It was so sweet. They can be wild, but I really have learned to be thankful for being in cubscouts. The boys are so sweet & say the funniest things! Maybe it is preparing me to have a baby boy!! I really always thought I just wanted all girls, of course I will be happy with whatever children we have, but now I am also thinking a baby boy would be so fun.
After work today I need to get some ingredients for cookies to deliver to my husbands clients & my coworkers. We are going to be making hundreds of cookies this weekend! I found a recipe for ginger cookies dipped in white chocolate & they look so good & also really cute! We will see how easy they are to make though!!
I got the best deal on a cast iron pot at World Market the other day. I have been wanting one of those pots forever because I hear they make the best soups & stews but they are soooo expensive. We have really been watching our money lately, saving everything for fertility treatments. I really can't think of anything extra that we have bought in the past year other than a few candleholders & a Christmas tree skirt. But anyways, when we were looking at cast iron pots online, they are all at least $70 & the le creuset ones are about $200 or more!!! No way we could spend that much or would spend that much on a pot!! Nate & I & my sister & her husband all went over to my mom & dad's for dinner one night & after dinner my sister & I realized we had spend $20, get $10 coupons for World Market that expired the next day! We begged our husbands & then headed off with our mom on a girls shopping trip to World Market an hour before it closed. I just love World Market! I feel like it has the style of Anthropologie but without breaking the bank! I searched around a long time & then ended up getting some candies for my nephews for Christmas, the prettiest flower bath petals for my mother in law, also for Christmas, a mercury glass polka dot candle holder & tiny pink mercury glass candle holder for myself (mercury glass is my weakness, but they were each only a few dollars). Then, I saw a stack of cherry red cast iron pots with a 50% off sign. I ended up getting a $60 pot for the price of $20!!! I was sooo excited! Now tonight I am going to try it out & make a leek & white bean soup that I love! So funny that the things I get most excited about buying now are house & kitchen things!!!
I have been trying not to think or stress about infertility problems this past week. It's pretty impossible not to think about, but I think the best thing is just keeping busy. I haven't been good about working out this week as there are things planned every night, but I am going to do a good job working out next week & going running & to the gym over Christmas break. A week from tomorrow I go to have an ultrasound to see if the cysts are gone & what my next step is.
