ICLW - March

Welcome ICLWers!

It's hard to believe it's already been a month, but here we are. Some things have changed... others remain the same.

Things that are the same:
  • My beloved... my calm anchor in the midst of this chaotic world. Seriously, nothing rattles this guy. And that's just one of the many things I love about him.
  • My home... as always, in a bit of disarray, but comfy.
  • My work... retail booksales. Even with the economic situation our world is in, it doesn't appear that anyone has given up reading... thank heaven!
  • My ttc journey... still in a holding pattern. I wasn't able to get in for my HSG last month, much to my bigtime disappointment. I'm hoping that we will be back on track by early April.
  • The weather... Even though it's spring according to the calendar, winter is being stubborn. The last few days have been great with a ton of snow melting. But the 'white-poop' is forecasted to make yet another appearance tonight! Argh!
Things that have changed:
  • My weight... March has been a good month for me in the battle with my weight. The first number on the scale has changed and has stayed changed. I highly recommend the book "I Can Make You Thin" by Paul McKenna. I'm not into the hypnosis part, but he made a lot of valid points that helped me to take stock of how I view my body.
  • The magpies... Have I ever mentioned how much I dislike birds? Ok, not so much dislike. More like terrified out of my mind. Anyway, imagine my delight when the magpies moved back into the lilac bush outside our bedroom window. It's a sign of spring but...
  • My bank account... Petey the PT Cruiser needed some medical care, and so $900 later, he's back on the road.
  • My blog layout... I took on html code and won! Woo-hoo! Now, I just need to figure out how to change the font and I'm set.
Read, enjoy, laugh at me, whatever. :)
