Bringing up the lights..

Christmas breakfast, we only have this breakfast once a year and for good reason if you had it any more you would gain a lot of weight. But boy was it good. Scott's mom Pat was able to come visit us and join us for Christmas this year. I was so nice to have all of our family together.

New Christmas outfit, I don't get one from my mom anymore but it's tradition so I have to uphold the tradition. = )

Our new Christmas PJ's, another tradition that must be upheld even if I do have to buy them for myself.

Well I got a lot of great wonderful presents and enjoyed the time I got to spend with family this year. I hope that everyone had a great Christmas this year and remembered the true reason for Christmas. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Willing to try anything???

So if most of you know what Clomid is you know what it is used for. That's right fertility drugs, no I am not trying to have 6 babies at once I just want one baby. I have gone thru gastric bypass surgery and lost 97lbs; I am also now taking Clomid and am taking a natural supplement that I read about on a PCOS web site that should help. And now I am going to go to a Chiropractor to get adjusted because I heard that that might help also. The things that you will do just because it might help.

Now I still don't want 6 kids at once but going thru all this and waiting like I have I understand why it happens to some people. Basically you are only suppose to be on Clomid for 3 to 6 months before you go onto drugs that are injected. After that the next step is IVF, and that is when you sometimes get 6 babies. I know someone who went thru the IVF process and they had to take out a $20,000 loan. If you are going to spend that much money you kind of want to make sure that you get pregnant. So now you know why I want to try everything.

Let the games begin.


Well I am taking the step and starting clomid. I have heard that some people have bad side effects from taking clomid. I never have side effects that the medication always warns you about, but I think that I have experienced some side effects. I have a co-worker who is a big pain in my butt, and I don't get along with her very much. Well she took it upon her self to let me know that I made some mistakes (in a not very nice way). I was so mad at her and wanted to just start crying, and I could not stop. I knew I was over reacting but I just could not stop. Oh the joys of being a woman.

For Halloween this year at work we decided to dress up. There was only going to be 3 of us there because three others were going to be off. So we thought we would try and coordinate together. A lot of people dress up at the Borough so I thought I would be a good sport and dress up also. Melinda, Xander, and Jacob Logan came by and saw me and Trick-or-Treated at my office. Later we went to a Halloween party at one of Scott's co-workers house. We had a great time and enjoyed the games that the kids played. I also watched the kids trade Halloween candy for what they thought was the best. (good times)

2008 Gala

Every year my doctor throws a Gala for all his Gastric Bypass patients that is catered with a slide show of before and after pictures. I did not get in to see my doctor before the Gala so they used my 6month picture. But here was my picture the night of the Gala with my doctor, with 93 lbs lost. They had glow stick necklaces for everyone and the cups on the table would light up. Scott took of from work so that we could go to this together. And then to totally go against weight loss, we went to Glacier Brewhouse for dessert after we left the Gala.

Part of the Gala is a food bank drive and Dr. Todd asks everyone to donate the amount of lbs of food for the amount of lbs lost (like a fast offering). Once you gave your donation to the food bank they had you take your picture with these two.

Summers over!!

I can not believe how fast my summer has gone. The fair is starting here and that means that summer is over. Once Scott and I go I will report back with pictures and commentary with how the fair stacks up this year. = )

I has been 3 weeks now since I started my new job and it is great. Not to long after I started they asked everyone if they would like to work 4-10's. At first I was not interested but the switch days off so one week I have Monday off then the next week I have Friday off so every other weekend I have a 4 day week end. Plus my 4 day weekend is the same time that Scott has off since he does 7 on and 7 off.

New Job!!!!!!

I got a new job yesterday, I am now going to be working for the Borough in the valley. This job is going to be better pay than I have now and I am going to have about twice as much paid time off every year. I was telling my sister that when people ask me where I work it sounds more like a grown up job. So I think I finally have a grown up job now that I am about to turn 30.

Summer pics!

I thought that this was a great picture of uncle Cody and Jack mowing the lawn together.

Over a long weekend this summer we went camping with some friends of ours. We went up to Hatchers Pass and the first day we were there it rained all day. Plus there was still snow in some areas were it had not all melted. So once again I under estamted how cold it could be at night in Alaska and Scott and I were a little cold. After that trip I decided I wanted a great sleeping bag that would keep me warm and dry for my birthday. Hopefuly Scott took the hit and knows what to get me for my birthday. Even though it was cold and rainy most of the time we did get a little sun and I (Heidi) of course got a sun burn from the little time the sun was out. But all in all we had a great time and look forward to going camping again.

Good Job!!

Well this past week Scott has been able to starting training one of the new gals and get her up to speed. For those of you who don't know Scott works in Eagle River at the State's female prison.

Scott didn't think that he is the best one for the job to start training but I know better. He is very good at working with people, but he thinks that since he has only been there for two 1/2 years he is not qualified enough. His supervisors are also pushing him to think about becoming a supervisor himself. I am just a little biased but I think he would be great at it and do a good job. Plus the pay raise would not be bad at all either.


Spotting in Early Pregnancy...
I had a miscarriage on Wednesday, I have been trying to prepare myself for it because I started spotting on Tuesday the 8th but I wasn't very worried because it was never very much definitely not like having a period. I was so happy to finally be able to say I was pregnant. This trial has not been easy for me at all, and I know that if I can get pregnant once then it can probably happen again. But that is one of those sayings that you say because you have nothing else to say and it just sucks all around.

Funny Sayings!

After doing a few updates to my blog I remembered something funny on the day that we took this picture. If any of you know our family you know that we have to take tons of pictures I mean a ton of pictures before we will all agree on one family picture. Well we had a lady from our ward come and take pictures for us and she was not use to one family needed so many pictures, and we were all getting a little testy. Well at this time Cody decided he did not want to take anymore pictures so he started to do funny faces and not look at the camera and my dad was losing his temper by then because the wind was blowing and it was cold out. So we were all getting mad at Cody and telling him to stand still so that we could get a good picture and then my dad says "stand still were not standing here for fun." That did it we all just started cracking up because my dad was being totally serious and he was mad at Cody but it was just so funny when we are there to take a family picture to show that we are a happy loving family. We proceeded to laugh and joke with and at dad, but he takes it well and is a good sport. We really do love each other!


So my sister told me about this book, what can I say I go hooked fast. I love to read series books because I get more time with the charters I come to like in the book. I did not know much about the books I just knew that people were talking about the books and seemed to like them. Well I did not get much sleep this week and finished all three and cannot wait for the 4th one to come out.

Before and After

This is the day of my Surgery and how lovely I looked!

I got a new haircut to go with the new me!

So this is what I look like after about 55lbs lost but I am up to 65lbs now. So I am doing pretty good. I don't have the best pictures yet but they are getting better.
