2009 will be different and we’re starting on New Year’s Eve! We won’t be making the trip to Austin for New Year’s. I’m totally bummed, but I must not always be a brat and get everything I want. I must learn to do what is best for our finances. So we’ve decided, we’re staying here for New Years! Secretly, I’m actually very excited to stay home with my hubby on New Years! I’m hoping it will be just the two of us at home sipping on non-alcoholic champagne (do they even make that?) and enjoying our first “planned” BD (baby dance a.k.a baby making sex) sessions!
I’m also giving the Finances responsibility to my husband. I’m hoping that with this I’ll be more disciplined with spending money, because he won’t let me!! I won’t know the balance in the account, so it won’t be as easy for me to say “I don’t feel like cooking. Let’s go out!”.
In addition to not spending the money to travel for New Year’s, I’ve decided I’m not going to buy OPKs (Ovulation Predictor Kits) and HPT (Home Pregnancy Tests) this cycle. It’s only about a $20 - $30 expense, but still, everything adds up! If we get a BFN (big fat negative) this cycle, I’ll ASK my husband if I can buy some in January!
TTC front – AF is still visiting. No sign of her departure. Still ecstatic to have her visiting, but come on already....
