Would ya like to see the websites I visit every single day, without fail? (Cause I have no life.)
I start my morning with Woot to see what's on sale. They only sell 1 item a day, so this is a daily must. Then I head over to Shirt Woot to check out their shirt of the day. I own lots of them.
When I'm finished shirt shopping, I head over to Lost and Found and Connections Abound to see the infertile-world blog news. If you've never been there, you should head on over now. I'll wait.
(Cue cheesy jazz wait music...)
I spend a lot of time at school on CNN. I am always finding good videos to show the class. Most recently, I showed them a video on the effects of the oil spill on wildlife, and a couple of tornado videos. They loved it.
Ok, welcome back. I always check out Facebook, then I head over to Texts From Last Night. If you've never checked this out, you should, but be warned. It will make you fear for human kind. It's scary, funny, and really worrisome all at the same time.
On Sundays, I can't function without Postsecret. For those of you who've never heard of Postsecret, it started out as Frank's art project. He sent out a bunch of blank postcards with a request that whoever received it put their innermost secret on the card and send it back. Four books and countless Sunday Secrets later, he still gets hundreds.
Every day, I visit one of two music sites. The first is Pandora. It's personalized internet radio stations. I love it, because it pops up stuff I would have never found on my own. The second is Grooveshark. Grooveshark is free online music. You can search for what you want and add it to playlists. It rocks.
What websites can you not live without?

So, Dr. Wiz. Am I ovulating by myself, or not? If I am, do I need to fork over thousands of dollars I don't have for injectables? Why can you not give me a straight answer for this? And why we're on the subject, why can you not remember anything I've ever told you about my history???
DH and I are going in for a second opinion on the 11th. I waited until school was out to schedule it. Hopefully, this guy will be better!
Side note #1: I decided to do an experiment this month, and I think it worked. Originally, Dr. Wiz said that I wasn't ovulating due to stress. So I started thinking. What, aside from IF, had I done that was stressing me out more than usual? Ahhhh... That's right. I gave up my Diet DP. I was down to one measly little serving a day, and I was a bitch. So this month, I started drinking more of it. Not back up to my old levels, but more than 1 little cup. And, da da da da! I ovulated! ( I realize that my "advanced medical degrees" in CPR and first aid do not qualify me to make medical decisions like this, but I really don't care.)
Side note #2: I decided to be a bad-ass on Friday afternoon and go outside barefoot to get flowers out of my car. It had been 95 since about 10 that morning, so the sidewalk was nice and hot. I realized it was too hot about halfway through the flowers, but thought I could tough it out. I now have blisters on the bottoms of both my feet. But, I am a bad-ass!
Side note #3: We still have 8 days of school left!! How is that even possible? It's two freakin weeks!! Ack!

Would ya like to see what I did this weekend?
Then, I installed this:
I might have had a leetle help from DH...But I did all the wiring!
And then, finally just for shits and giggles, while my DH was watching the season finale of a certian show, I took this:
And turned it into this:
Please excuse the hideous couch behind it...I'm valiantly trying to get rid of it. I have no idea what I'm going to do with the table now. But I like it!
I guess that's it for my first "Would ya like to..." Monday. Have a good week!
