By the way did I mention

I am continuing to clean and prepare for our Fourth of July guests, you would think that the house wouldn't be dirty enough to take days to clean by since I shared my dirty car with you, you all know the truth...  Really I'm kidding!  The reason I'm cleaning like the house is for sale is because it's the first time in 7 years that my Mother in law has come to visit, and she is the kind of person who you could eat off her floors has a very clean house.  To say the least I have been working myself to death, and my sweet friend Ruby Wife reminded me yesterday that I need to be me.  I am taking a deep breath, and trying to relax.
Did I mention that my Mother and Father in law are divorced?  They haven't spent more that 2 hours at any family function together and they are both going to be staying at our house for 3 and 1/2 days.  And did I mention they don't like each other?  So I have just realized this house could be a disaster and she probably won't notice.
And did I mention that she is one of the best cooks I've ever met?  She taught me to cook, she makes wonderful food and I feel the pressure, for real people.  Not because she has ever said anything about my cooking, she actually says that the things I make are great, but because I am known for my cooking and she is known for her cooking...
Ok so now that I have all that off my chest, did I mention that if I am not pregnant this month that HD has to have his sperm level checked, and that I am so trying to lay this at God's feet.  When HD had the vasectomy he never went back for his check up (sperm level) and our insurance covers the check up.  So I don't know what to do, I can be totally honest and ask if they will honer the check up even though he has since had a vasectomy reversal, or we can go to the lab for a whopping $500 dollars.  I am of course praying that we will become pregnant this month, but also asking for God's will not mine.
So I think I have been feeling more stress this week that the whole year!  And I just wanted you all to know.  Please pray for me that I will keep a Godly perspective this week, and receive my Mother in law lovingly knowing this visit is alot harder for her than me.  And as far as the pregnancy, you all know I want to be pregnant.
Did I mention that my Mother in law does not read my blog thankfully?

I know it's easier said then done, but try not to stress and work too hard. You deserve to have fun yourself. I have actually had things said about my home (not being dirty) but, that my pictures look stupid and I've had my food put down as well. If they don't like the free meal I fixed them, Wendy's is right down the street!
You will probably get pregnant like I did when I quit stressing about it and became more relaxed.
Good luck to you with your party. I'm sure everything will work out fine...and if not we'll laugh about it later on your blog I'm sure!

big breath girl! ya know i would just let your mother-in-law do the cooking! keep her busy, keep her away from "dad", etc. and for the prego part...just enjoy the fun parts of it all *wink, wink*. your worrying won't change things either way. there, another big breath.

oh yea...and God is in control of it all, not that you need to be reminded of that, but it feels good to say and remind myself!

love,
a "motherly" friend!

The whole time I was reading this, I kept thinking, does her MIL read this? I hope not. Though she sounds like quite the efficient lady.

I'm enjoying your blog. Good luck becoming pregnant and with all the company.

I am so laughing because just as I was thinking, I hope she doesn't read your blog...you said that she doesn't. ;)

We are in sync my friend.

Have a wonderful holiday visit and try not to stress.

Remember...older people might have worse eyesight and might not be able to see the details. LOL

Sounds like you got a lot going on! Take a break and relax - everything's gonna go fine!

Let the insurance pay for the lab testing, they will only end up paying a small amount anyway - negotiated rates and all that. I hope all works out well for you. I am praying you get pregnant, I understand your pain. My hubby had a Vas done over a year ago and I wish everyday he hadn't. Unfortunately he isn't ever going to get it reversed so I will hope and pray for you instead. Hang in there!
