My home is my castle...

Well, we have found a house! While we were out looking for a rental, which was VERY frustrating because everything we could afford was a dump, or instantly rented, our old landlord called and asked us if we wanted our old house back. The tenant that moved in was being transferred and the house was coming available. At first, we thought we might not take it, but after some calculating, we decided it was a smart move for us to move back in. We know the good's and bad's of the house, we know what the bills are, we know and like the area, and the house has everything we need (though we would like more square footage). The landlord is even giving us a few weeks free rent and paying for materials to let us do some work on the property! Woohoo!

So, we're moving back into our old house, who would've thought that was even possible?
We are planning on building Victoria a bed to go in her room...and we are VERY excited about this! I'll just post a photo of our INSPIRATION (not sure exactly what our plans are yet) and you'll see why...I mean, who wouldn't want a bed this cool as a kid??!?!?!?! This way we can also give her the pink and girly stuff she wants without having pepto-bismol

On another note, I had 8 vials of blood taken today and took my first injection of a different fertility drug (Gonal-F) today. It's a much higher dosage than what I was before and that makes me a bit nervous. Last time I developed a cyst instead of any mature follicles. The doctor is hoping for me to get 3-6 follicles matured. I pray that this works....

Oh yeah, and Miah is in his new unit now and he seems to like it. They sound like they will be doing a lot of training over the next year and probably deploying next February. It kind of scares me, but I know he is ready to go.

It's been awhile...

It's been a long time since I've written anything on here and there are no good excuses for it...just lots of poor ones.
Let's see....we moved to Ft. Benning, GA for several months and lived with my wonderful Aunt and cousins while Jeremiah went through some training. Once he was done there, we were re-stationed up to North Carolina. Now, we are here, and while we were looking for rentals which was turning out to be quite a stressful and daunting task, our old landlord called us to let us know our old house was coming available, so we will be moving back into our old house soon. Jeremiah is in his first real unit since re-joining the Army because he has been in training for the last several years and we are hoping that he enjoys it and that it is a good move for him. We will know in time.
Victoria has grown like a little weed, but still skinny as ever. She FINALLY hit 30lbs! She is such a hoot! She dresses herself, a santa claus red dress with white fur trim, pink (and other colored) tights, pink and black snowboots, and bows and flowers COVERING her head...she loves her Barbies and to paint. You can't stop her from singing or talking all day long (gee...wonder where she gets that from?!?). She still takes naps (Thank GOD!) and sleeps great through the night...even though she is on a futon in the living room until we move into our house. One day she wants long hair and the next she wants it short, but she will not let me put a brush to it without a fight and definitely won't let me put it in a ponytail. She LOVES her friends and missed them so much! Now she misses my Aunt and cousins and Grandparents's (just saw them at it's still fresh). She has a sassy little attitude sometimes, but for the most part is sweet and polite. She has a fantastic imagination and is forever pretending something. She won't leave Bailey alone, even after our constant threats and pleas and even a few warning nips from Bailey. I kind of wish she were a little more fearful/respectful of dogs after having 19 stitches in her face from a dog bit, but would never even know she was ever bit! She had a pretty bad black-eye from sledding recently and thought it was the coolest thing ever!
Ok, said enough for is interrupting this thought, yet again!
