Things are going well

I started the injectible meds this past Sunday and all is going well so far. It has been really easy. Our transfer will likely be July 4th or July 6th. I have to fly out to San Fran for a one day venture just to get an ultrasound at the end of this month (why, oh why will they not let me get it done here locally?). I will leave early in the morning and come back that evening. A few days after that I will fly there and stay for a few days for the transfer. I can't wait to meet my awesome IM there!! She is so fun to chat with and I just know that we are going to be two peas in a pod. July can't get here fast enough. Just think, a baby for my IPs could be brewing in my womb in less than a month! Crazy, huh? It seems like I just gave birth to my first surrobabe the other day. He is now a cute bubbly little guy and he will be 6 months old on the 27th. Wow, time sure does fly.

The timing sucks for us to be buying a new car since we are refinancing our home this month but it is necessary since we cannot possibly be a one car family. Clayton is looking at both Toyotas and Hondas (we are HUGE fans of Toyotas for their reliability). I really want him to buy another Toyota since we have a 1996 4-Runner that has never been in the shop. She (her name is Suzy) has been the most reliable vehicle ever. If she died tomorrow we feel like we got our money's worth out of her. That vehicle has went above and beyond the call of duty. I have serious attachment issues to her since she has been with us through everything-our move from Atlanta back to NC, the purchase and move into all 3 homes that we have bought, the move to Colorado, the trip home from the hospital with both of my kiddos, etc. She even has nose prints from our dog Bailey on the inside of the cargo area windows. I can't bear to clean them off as they are a reminder of him. Needless to say, I am soooo glad that Clayton didn't drive her to work the day of the tornado. I would be distraught. Thank God she was safe at home in our garage. Sorry about the tangent but I do love our SUV. Anyway, Clayton test drove a few cars and thinks that he likes the Honda Civic best. When compared to the cars we saw at Toyota, I can see why. The Honda did look cooler. He will likely buy an '09 Civic but we will always stick to Toyota for SUVs (the Sequoia is next on our list). This will be our first brand new car as we have always bought used. I just can't wait to not be holed up in our house everyday while the kids drive me absolutely crazy. :P

Brad just bought a Civic and he loves it! He didn't get the hybrid, but it still gets 38 miles to the gallon! Yay! You cannot find a Toyota Prius within a 150 mile radius of Nashville. The closest one on a lot is Louisville, KY. If you guys like SUV's, Mercury makes a hybrid Marlin. The Campbells have always been a Nissan/Infiniti family-- the new Nissan Rogues are nice, and they get 36 miles to the gallon. The Altima is a great car as well-- you might want to look into Nissans just for the hell of it. They are affordable and very dependable. Good luck with the implants-- Hope the eggo gets preggo!
