New hobbies...

Since the job hunt is taking longer than I would like, I have taken up new hobbies.

Because I like am OBSESSED with HGTV, and I obviously have a lot of time on my hands to watch it, I have decided to try my hand at some DIY projets.  The husband made me some shelves (who knew he could do that?), which I am in the process of priming and painting for our family room wall.  I have been collecting wooden frames from thrift stores and flea markets, and then I am painting them all white.  In the end, they will fill up a wall in my new house, and that will make me happy.  I also found a great nightstand at the flea market that I will be sanding, priming, and painting to go in our bedroom.  You see, we have never bought furniture for our bedroom.  In truth, we haven't bought much furniture for our house, period.  At least, nothing nice.  We move a lot, which makes is hard to purchase things like that, since we never know if they will fit into the next house we live in.  Therefore, we buy cheap things, which end up making our home look like a college dorm instead of a grownup house that we can be proud to entertain in.  I am now using my ample time to try and create a better space for us, and it is fun and exciting for me!

I am also still crocheting, even though I took a bit of a hiatus and haven't had the motivation to open the Etsy store I had so many plans for.  Maybe now I should get the motivation since it would be nice to contribute to the family income!  I am in the process of making my first throw right now, and I am loving how it is turning out.  I also just ordered yarn to make my Momma some placemats that she requested from me months ago.  Like I said, I am trying to keep myself busy or else I will go crazy being in this house all day every day.

As far as my cycle goes, I am currently on CD 25.  This is actually a great sign.  The last couple of years, my cycle has only been 23-24 days long on average except when I was medicated.  Last month, my cycle was a natural 28 days long!  Hopefully this means that I am making some positive changes with my diet and everything and that my cycle will continue to look this great.  The bad news is I never got my positive OPK this month, and our timing was probably only so-so.  But I am staying positive.  I am surrounded by children and pregnant's gotta be my turn at some point!  I can't wait to crochet a blanket for my own little one :)

Happy Sunday everyone!
