Need those eggs to mature already!

Went to the doc's this morning. He said the things aren't progressing as quickly as they would like. I have 4 follicles compared to two last cycle so that's good but two of the four aren't matured yet. So guess what? I have to go in 7am tomorrow morning. That's way early for me on a Saturday. They're gonna check me out and see if I'm ready for the IUI. Cross your fingers!

I recently got two art jobs. One is an illustration job to do 7 pen and ink illustrations for a book of poems. I've done the research part for the visuals now it's just sitting down and doing them. I hope to start them over this weekend. The second is my 1st commissioned pencil portrait. Ii used to do portraits back in my 20's but haven't in a long time. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. I'm always nervous before I start a piece, don't know why? I always question my abilities and then I'm shocked at how good the piece comes out. Artists! we're a wacky bunch! LOL

My friend and partner in crime 'E' is away in St. Louis visiting her son for two weeks. What am I gonna do without her? LOL Probably get some stuff done but it won't nearly be as fun.

1st blog...woohoo!

Ok so now it seems I've joined most of the universe and I'm now blogging. I'm not much of a journaler (it's that a word?). I had a diary when i was a kid and wrote in it a few times. I'm a visual person not much of a writer but thought what the heck. There are plenty of horrible blogs out there mine couldn't be any worse..LOL. So with that...

As some of you might know I got married about a year and a half ago to my second hubby Jay. We're both 40ish and both never had kids. We consider our relationship a second chance at love and happiness. So now we're trying to start a family. We've tried for over a year now and now have had to go to the infertility doc for help. We're on our second cycle of IUI (aka. turkey baster Hopefully this round will work! The doc says I have one more year to try and then I'm on my own. We both KNOW it will happen! Just trying not to be too anxious and let things happen. So that's it for today...tomorrow I'll catch you up with my new portrait biz.
