back to early mornings? well.. maybe!

Hey Everyone Well.. I don't know WHY exactly but I stayed up this morning after David left for work! I had a tiny headache and had got up to take some advil and then I wanted to write a few things to remember /to do for today on my marker board and next thing I know I am chilling in bed with the fur babes watching tv! Yesterday on Nichole's cleaning journey- the continuing saga right? I managed to clean out my hall closet. The hall closet is actually a linen closet I suppose but I use it to store a few random things and it is mostly DVD's. I actually now have 2 of the shelves in there totally empty! I told David that means I can bring more books from my mom and dads over and he kinda just looked at me lol. I probably won't bring any but it is nice to know if I wanted to I could :) I would have likely grabbed a bag and started pitching clothes-but after David got home I was loosing my mojo and he wanted to go to walmart. I generally don't start my cleaning binges till around 3 ...

allergies, headaches, nauseousness and coming out of hibernation

Hey Everyone Well.. I started a post yesterday and never finished it! Let me just tell you for the last week I have been plagued with an alternating pattern of horrible headaches and Nauseousness.. and I spent most of EARLY Monday morning chucking out my brains in the bathroom :(  Thankfully I seem to be doing better than I was because it was getting on my nerves so bad. I figure the headache part has to do with allergies and the fact I am almost out of claritn- which I don't even think is kicking anything for me anymore because I have been taking it for a good while and likely need to switch back to allegra for a while! I was a bit nauseous last night but I just ended up going to bed early and watching tv and I actually did go to sleep way too early and woke up around 1230 and had a horrible time going back to sleep.. but what else would be new there right? I have made some more progress in the house with cleaning but goodness knows I still have a way to go.. I actually had ...

Review: KNOWHEN Advanced Ovulation Test #review #sponsored #knowwhen

As you all probably know - if you have read the blog for any length of time- I have as of yet, only been blessed enough to have fur babies and not human babies- that is why my blog tag line became "ramblings of a southern "mama wannabe" blogger".  I have at various points wrote that I am not really sure what the issue is, or that there even is one- I truly believe that it just hasn't happened yet, but with me getting older I think it might be time to get a little more serious about trying to figure out why/doing better with tracking things and all of that. I know that I have took a test that is similar to a pregnancy test a couple of times that tells you if you should be able to get pregnant and it always comes back positive so that is encouraging. Of course, I did have cervical cancer and HPV when David and I first got married but the last time I went to a DR about that everything was more than clear and they said there shouldn't be a problem on my end with getting pregnant. Of ...

4:30 comes early

Hey All Well.. David had to go in at 4:30 this morning so I am all kinds of out of whack lol.  First of all usually when he goes in like that I stay up a while after he goes to bed because he has to go to bed so early- well like i had mentioned I have been plagued with the headache from hell on Wed- which kind of briefly went away for a little while late that evening but it was back full force yesterday- I pushed through - took a tiny nap of about 20 min tops and then by 9 I was just feeling like crashing. I ended up laying in bed while David took a shower and watched the dual race thing and then I read a book for a little while while he went to sleep. I was awake a few times in the night and then I woke up before his clock went off at like 4..which is usually when I am awake so nothing new there. Then it took me FOREVER to go back to sleep! So now I am sitting here just doing some random things and re-watching PLL.  I am up to season 5 now ...YAY. I did finish cleaning the ...
