Blast from the Past

A long, long time ago, January 12th, 2009, I decided to start a blog right here on blogger. I named it La La Land and gave it one post. This post came right as we were "trying" to concieve Carter, buying our first home and months before wedding. Unfortunately I only made this one post, and I think I'm the only one who ever read it. I wish I kept it up through all the craziness that become my life, but I wanted to share this one post. I'm a little embarrassed by it, but here it goes:

The First One

I am not sure who will want to read this, or if anyone will, but here goes: I'm 25 years old, engaged to my wonderful Fiance Andy, looking to buy our first home, and trying to concieve our first child. How unromantic does "trying to concieve our first child sound?" Yuck.

Today we looked at a few prospective homes. We absolutely fell in love with one at the perfect price, only to find out an offer was put on it yesterday. Just our luck. We looked at two others, and they were terrible. I'm not a very handy person so I definitely need a home that is move-in ready. I think its going to be a loong search process, but I am so ready to move. We are giving up our dream wedding so we can put the money towards a down payment on a home. It's so much more practical in todays economic times, and we can still have a small, pretty, intimate wedding - right?? Do they exist? We've been together for over 5 years now and I feel totally married already, we are such the old married couple now and I'm ready to elope and get this over with. We'll see.

So, I know I'm a little late for New Years resolutions, but this is what my resolutions are for 2009: Get Married, Buy our first home & get pregnant. In no particular order. I'm hoping to document all of this craziness for all you millions of people reading my blog. Haha. Or for myself so I can read all of this later.
As far as the baby-making attempt is going - we are in our second month trying, and I'm in the dreaded "two-week wait." (Wait between ovulation and period) Sigh. We recently hired a cleaning service and I think they stole a pregnancy test. Haha. I got a box of 5 tests, I used one a few weeks ago, and I just went to use one (I know wayy too early, I couldn't help myself), and they were only 3 left in the box. Hmm interesting. I'm hiding them next time they come. Or maybe, I won't need them! I hope this is our month, I'm so ready for this and then I'll have 9 months to buy our house and get married! We've been engaged for 1.5 years, and I am the total slacker on the wedding planning because I have simply lost the ability to make decisions. You should see DF (dear fiance) and I at the end of the day trying to decide what to do for dinner.
Me: What should we do for dinner?

DF: I don't care, whatever you want.

Me: Well, what do you feel like?

DF: I don't know, anything.

Me: hmmm, I don't know what I feel like. How about chinese?

DF: Eh, not really in the mood for chinese.

Me: Welll. (long pause). Let's see what we have here to cook.
This is when I walk into the kitchen , stare at the fridge, then go to the cabinets, stare and go back to DF.
Me: I don't feel like anything we have here.

DF: I don't want to go pick something up, I can just make something here.

Me: But I don't want something here. Hmm
This is when I make my 2nd trip into the kitchen and do the same fridge / cabinet back and forth dance.
Me: Yea, nothing we have sounds good.

DF: Why don't you go grocery shopping?

Me: Hmmm, nothing at the grocery store sounds good. We have plenty of food here.

DF: But you don't want to eat any of it.

Me: No. (Sigh) I'm hungry.

DF: I'm just gonna make something.

Me: I think I'm gonna pick up some chinese take-out

And this is pretty much how it goes on a nightly basis. Every week we tell ourselves we are going to plan our meals ahead of time, but it never sticks. Blah.

Alright, nighty night.
