I'm 29, and I still will be on my birthday this year!!! I swear it! My darling husband and I have been married for 7 years this year. We have two great kiddos: a 5 year old son, and a nearly 2 year old daughter. The are the most beautiful kids in the world if you ask us! I work at home, 2 jobs, one is developing curriculum and other publications for a disability ministry. By night I am a Pampered Chef consultant. I love both of my jobs, and I love that they are flexible enough for me to stay at home with my kids.

Negative, Nada, Nil, Negatorae

So, my cousin and one of my BFF's spent most of yesterday convincing me that it would probably bode well for me to purchase a pregnancy test. Why, you may be asking...because I was over a week late and I'm not on any BCP's currently...ergo, my lateness COULD be due to a big WHOOPS! This caused me great distress, and I almost boycotted Wal-Mart yesterday for this very reason, but my daughter is not quite a year old yet!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! However, my family DID in fact need dinner last night, so I trapesed to Wally World, and with great trepidation, I tiptoed down the pregnancy test and contraceptive asile. Now, the amusing part of the story was, my budget didn't really cover one of the high end PT's, so I was hoping for just the Equate version...only I didn't see ANY! And of course you can't possible conceal yourself in this asile in an attempt to look for a PT...they are on the bottom shelf, in plain view of God and everybody! And where I live, if you make a trip to Wal Mart, you inevitably run into at least 11 people you know per trip! So, here I am squatting down to peer way back in the back of the bottom shelf to see if the might still have the $3 PT...and they did. I stick my arm back there, always on board for saving $4, up to my shoulder to get the LAST Equate Pregnancy Test. I drop it in the buggy, and quickly cover it up with my bags of salad in hopes that I can high tail it out of there fast enough that I don't see anyone that I know. But, HARK, as I'm casually strolling down the asile, I see one of my other BFF's...she didn't catch my eye right away, but her toddler daughter recognized me and made a noise. I couldn't hide now! I walk up to her and we are wandering around together for a few minutes, and I see her look into my buggy....I'm praying that she didn't see what I was concealing in there, but a few minutes later I get up to check out and notice that the box had come uncovered! OY!!!! I know I blushed big fat red in my panic. I checked out and head home, only to have to rush around and get the kids dressed to head out for our FPU class. I was way too nervous to take the test in my blinding rush, so I waited until I got home take it. I get in the door, find the box and head for the bathroom. I always hate taking these tests, not only because of the control that is held on those blessed sticks, but because they are just ackward to maneuver!!! Anyway, I'm sitting there waiting the results, hyperventilating in the process. And finally the test is complete with a big fat NEGATIVE!!!!!! NO PREGGO FOR ME!!!! Don't get me wrong, I'm not against having another chillin, I just don't feel I could handle the pressure just yet. I am wishing all my baby dust on some other dear friends and family that deserve some blessings before I get myself knocked up again!

You girls know who you are, and I wish you all the babies you can handle!!! ******XOXOXOXO******
