Look! 5 + 6 = 11. Aren't I smart.

-Even though it was a week ago and the world news has moved onto Bin Laden, I DID indeed wake up at 2:30 a.m. last week for the Royal Wedding and I loved every minute of it. I got up just in time to watch the families arrive at the Abbey and shed some tears as the bride stepped out of her car. I thought her dress was stunning and she looked gorgeous. Perfection. The tradition of the ceremony was incredible and I loved the little looks she and William were giving each other during the ceremony. They are obviously very much in love and I hope that their marriage can survive the tough media coverage they will have to endure for the remainder of their lives.

-In other news, I was driving home from a family function Sunday night when my mom called and said Obama was going to give a national address regarding foreign policy. She said that she thought it had to do with Gaddafi. Ok, slightly interesting I thought. She called back seconds later and said that news was reporting that Bin Laden had been killed. I started shaking a little bit. I turned it to the AM station expecting news to be breaking into the commercial playing but that wasn't the case. I was almost home when I found a news station that said it was true. I rushed inside, turned on the tv and watched it all unfold. What a day for our country. I have to add that I found the celebrations outside of the White House to be a bit odd. Don't get me wrong, I am glad that we were able to find Bin Laden and I'm happy that he is no longer alive to plan another attack but something feels weird about throwing beach balls in the air when someone is killed. And most of the people I saw on camera were what....18 years old? Not to diminsh their feelings or their experience but they were kids when 9/11 took place. It just seemed like an excuse to party. I don't know. As I read more details about the Navy SEALS and the prep that went into finding OBL, I felt so proud of our nations leaders. I'm not a fan of Obama but he and the military leaders deserve kudos for this attack.

-I went 0 for 8 at the local fair photography contest this year....again. I went to the fair on Wednesday with my mom and was a little disappointed that I didn't earn a ribbon. I was even more upset when one picture that was extremely mediocre won a 4th place ribbon. At least one of my pictures in that same category was better. I don't know who is judging but I don't agree at all.

-I need to dig up my Dirk Nowitzki jersey and wear it tonight to cheer on the Mavs. They could go up 3-0 to the Lakers and if you know me, you know that I am a proud LAKER HATER 4 LIFE.

- I renewed my gym membership after a horrible showing in April. I think I went to the gym 3 times last month. Awful and my thighs are mocking me. I went after work yesterday and I do not like doing that at all. I'm thinking of everything that I need to get done at the house so I rush through my workout or cut it short. I fully intended on going this morning but after two nights of horrible sleep, I decided to sleep through my alarm. Next Monday, I start anew! Morning workouts at least 4 days during the work week.

-I'm not pregnant....again. The last cycle didn't work. I asked my doctor if I could get an HSG done and she said yes so I have that scheduled for next week. Of course I hope that they don't see anything wrong but that won't really get us any answers on why I still can't get pregnant. Because my husband is working 14 hours during a night shift through June, we will be taking a break but our next step is to use stricly injectable medications to make bigger (and more) follicles. In the meantime, I'd like to lose 10 pounds. Time to wipe out the junk food and download the Lose It! app again!

There was more I wanted to say but I've forgotten what it was. I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I'm so sorry to hear about the fair contest :( That sucks when something not as good as yours wins. It really makes you wonder what they are judging.

((hugs)) I hope something good happens for you soon! miss you M.

I read that the HSG can increase your chances of getting pregnant about 5%. I hope that is some small comfort? Good luck, I really hope things work out for you soon!
