Hello all. This morning I had my very first POSITIVE READING on my ovulation prediction kit. I've done the ovulation prediction kit before--but never have had a positive reading. I will, of course, be including a picture of this exciting test result. So basically this means that I should ovulate within the next 24 hours. So that means we'll be doing the bd (baby dance) tonight & don't call us...heh heh. We're very excited about this--because progress is being made. And even if we don't have success this month--at least my body is closer to working right and that's enough to put a smile on my face. =)

Today I woke up after having had 12 1/2 hours of sleep. I haven't been getting enough sleep the past 4 nights so I guess it was building up--I can't remember the last time I slep 12 hours. But! I feel better and have more energy today too. =) I made a TASKS list to help me accomplish more during the day. I found it VERY helpful. Here it is:

Daily Tasks

______Tidy up living room
______Make bed
______Practice piano
______Read scriptures-family & individual
______Pray-family & individual

Weekly Tasks

______Change sheets on bed
______Sweep/Mop/Deep clean kitchen
______Do laundry/put away laundry
______Date with spouse
______Magnify calling
______Meal Plans

Monthly Tasks

______Clean bathrooms
______Change air filter
______Go to the Temple

Fun Activities

______Cross stitching
______Watch a movie
______Check email

So I'm trying to get done the daily tasks + some of the weekly or monthly tasks before I enjoy any of the "FUN ACTIVITIES." Today I accomplished ALL of the daily tasks + did some laundry, swept, and planned the meals for the week. It feels SO GOOD to accomplish a lot and it's all due to making a list of what I think should be done. I'm not sure why this list has helped me--but it has.

For dinner we went over to Sarah's house. We had a nice mexican meal with a lucious English Black Cherry Trifle dessert. YUM! We had a great FHE (Family Home Evening) lesson on prayer. Then the kids played while we adults played TABOO. It was a great evening.

And now, of course, I must away for it is BD time!!! My husband is being as patient as he can be. =)

you only clean your bathrooms once a month? Wow, you are either really clean or really dirty.

Actually, there are these clorox tablets that you put in the back of the toilet. If you clean the toilet really well and then drop the tablet in the back--supposedly it will stay clean and fresh for one whole month! Nice, eh?
