Goodwill Mini Haul

I stopped in at the local Goodwill while I was out doing some Monday chores, so I picked up a few things:

King Richard's Faire!

Well, life marches on, and we're not going to let our Groupons expire!  So on Sunday, we marched on over to King Richard's Faire in Carver, MA, with our friends Paula and Amanda.  It was a pretty good time!

Naughty wench show!

Well, All the Bills Are In

Now that we have received all the hospital bills, we know the full crappy extent of our health insurance.  We've been paying for the family plan (because we've been trying to start a family) since last July, and it's at least 3x what our individual insurances were together.  So this has been coming out of my husband's paycheck every month.  And because it's a family plan (well, actually because his boss picked this plan) the deductible is $2000.

The Pets Say "Hi!"

It's been a while since I made a "pets" post, so here we go!  Have some pet pictures!
Ford always has to hover over me when I'm watching a show.

Finding Humor in the Hardest Times

I never thought I would be so grateful for Pinterest, but as I do with every other event or illness that comes my way, I went on a search for other people who had dealt with miscarriage and are still trying afterwards.  What I found was surprising and wonderful - boards full jokes, heartbreak and hope.  Rather than keep these to myself, I decided to post a few here for you.  Remember, none of these are made by me, only pinned by me:
