#30×30 Challenge Day 10

Is it wrong that I’m relaxing with a morning cup of tea while my soon-to-be impregnated wife is doing heavy yard labour?

Probably.

But the race is on. There’s a ton of gardening that needs to happen before her recommended two days of bed rest (May 12 and 13).

For example, we need to get these into the ground:

Clearly, many of our plantlings are unhappy.

So we’ll be working the ground again, digging little holes, transplanting some of our veggies into the ground, and maybe harvesting some of the asparagus that has just come up:

The lazy dogs are happy to be outside as well:

Hope you all have an amazing Saturday!

#30×30 Challenge Day 8

The dogs and I had an amazing hike at the conservation park. The sun was shining, the wind was pleasant, and there was not a cloud in the sky!

The dogs got to swim a lot, play fetch in the water, run through the forests…

And then, at some point, the big dog sprinted past me, and I caught a glimpse of something blue in her mouth….

I asked her to “show me” what it was, and she dropped it at my feet:

Then she proceeded to bark at me with the same tone that she uses when she wants me to throw something for her to fetch.

Obviously, I’m thinking “hells NO!”, and firmly ask her to “leave it”. Thankfully, she is obedient and does as she is told.

With sadness in her eyes, we walked away from the blue dildo (aka bestest fetch toy in the world) and continued on with our hike.

On the last leg of our jaunt, she found a puddle:

So you can guess how I spent the first hour of my time once we were back at home…..

Bathing the dirty dog!

Back in the Game FET #2

I haven’t been blogging much for a couple of reasons:

1. Work is kind of hellish right now, and my grandma once said to me: if you’ve got nothing nice to say, don’t say anything at all.
2. Ball hockey season has begun, and between weekend tournaments and twice weekly games, I have zero extra time.
3. Nothing has been really happening in terms of our Gayby-making agenda…. Til now.

2014 has consisted of a whole lot of waiting so far. In fact, almost half a year of waiting. First, it was waiting for DW to have two menstrual cycles after her miscarriage, then it was waiting for her weird post-car-accident bleeding to pass, and then another period. Well, 5 months later, here we are.

DW finally bled on April 23rd, started Estrace 3x per day on April 25th, and adds prometrium and endometrin 3x per day as of tomorrow May 8th.

Finally, our 5-day blastocysts move in on Monday, May 12th.

We are very excited, but a little guarded about our emotions.

You’ll probably hear more from me soon!

#30x30Challenge Day 1

So, I probably get more exercise than the regular person.

When a colleague at work mentioned the 30×30 Challenge, I bawked at it because I regularly spend more than 30 minutes outside everyday. To prove it, I plan on posting a photo each day on this blog. Feel free to join me in this challenge. It’s free! It’s fun! And it’s good for you!

Today, DW and I took our fur babies on our regular hike through the conservation park. I didn’t remember to snap a photo until we were almost at the very end of our walk. But I managed to get in a panoramic and a photo of the big dog all proud of herself for finding a deer leg.
