Liam


With Liam away I have felt most neurotic. That is to say, I hate to be alone. I panic about every noise I hear. I don't sleep well and I don't feel well. It has come to my attention after having spoken to Liam on the phone that we hate to be apart. I could hear the saddness in his voice. Yah, its fun at first to be all free but then it sets in he's not there. I miss his big over sized body taking up most of the couch. I can't sleep without hearing his obnoxious snoring. I feel lonely when its just the two of us and no daddy. I didn't out right ask him if he missed us but I could hear it in his voice. He too was lonely. Perhaps he misses me poking him in the middle of the night saying "STOP SNORING, I CAN'T SLEEP". Maybe he misses me leaning against him as he tries to type important messages. I don't know what it is that makes people so damn fond of each other but somehow we just miss each other. Without him I don't feel complete.

The Rose and the bunny

I believe he gets fairly good reception with those ears.

Take the carrot you know you want to!

Survey says carrot good!

It tastes much better when not gripped by a sweaty, squealing 4 year old

Bunny Butt!

She likes me, she likes me!

Funny they don't look like bunnies?

definitely not a bunny!

My couch


Why yes they are cream how very observant of you and yes there is a 4 year old sitting on one of the chairs! Please note 4 year old was cleaned with in an inch of her life before her little tushy was allowed to sit on the chair. Why yes cream is a stupid color to buy a couch and two chairs in!

TUBBY TIME


In my family a bath cures all. Got cold take a bath got a fever take a bath. My mother has always thrown both my sister and I in the bath anytime something goes wrong. You know what she's right. A bath does make a world of difference. Rose was driving me crazy this morning so I threw her in the tub and let her float for a half an hour and you know what? She was a much calmer and happier little girl. For some reason it even calms the crankiest of children. Any time my girlfriend Jodi and I feel we would smoosh our children when having a vist we would toss them in the tub and all would be better. I think in the week long vists we use to have they spent half of their time in the tubby. SO GO TAKE A BATH!

Update...

The Rockhampton photos are coming, honest. I just have to download them to my computer then post 'em, so be patient. Quick update though. We went to Repromed at 9:00 on Wednesday morning. We love our new doctor! We had a 45 min appointment and in that short time he made me feel like it was possible to get pregant again and not only that but, I may be able to get pregnant on my own once we get my endomitriosis in order. He also came up with a suggestion as to why Rose was so weird at deliever. He believes she was having withdrawls from the Paxil I took while pregnant with her. What he said all made sense. She was so placid at birth and then went all cranky which is very common for babies coming off of medicine. He also believes that my endo is back and once we take care of that there is an excellant chance we could get pregnant on our own. The thought is that as my endo gets worse the more pain I experience around my period and the least likely I am to concieve on my own. In a sense my own body is attacking my eggs and not allowing me to get pregnant. So we are going to do some cheap test and take a look at everything and wait untill January and go on from there. I have hope again and I am thrilled to be back in the infertility race. Not to mention come Janaury a cycle of IVF is only 2ooo dallors and once you pay your first 1000 the goverment pays you 80 cents on the dallor making each treatment rather cheap (in america a cycle could cost you more than 7000 for the same treatment). I would also like to shout out to Chery Muchow who has delivered a healthy baby boy named Isaac Joseph. Mom and baby are doing well. So congrats to the new family!

what mythological creature are you?

You scored as Angel. Angel: Angels are the guardians of all things, from the smallest ant to the tallest tree. They give inspiration, love, hope, and positive emotion. They live among humans without being seen. They are the good in all things, and if you feel alone, don't fear. They are always watching. Often times they merely stand by, whispering into the ears of those who feel lost. They would love nothing more then to reveal themselves, but in today's society, this would bring havoc and many unneeded questions. Give thanks to all things beautiful, for you are an Angel.

A proud day


This morning Rose came to be with a large book under her arm. Hugged tightly to her chest was my favorite book of all time, Little Women. I wasn't sure if she was old enough to understand the book but I began reading it to her. It became immediately clear that she not only understands the book but that she has already found a character to relate to. Before I tell you what character she has chosen to relate to I must first tell you that I have always been Jo. From page one to the very last of the Little Women series I have always been Jo. To this day the book creeps into my thoughts. I recieved this book as a present from my best friend Beth S. on March 19th 1998. Beth and Heather were my bosom buddies and we all related to the book indifferent ways. So when Rose brought me the book a wave of memories hit me from my own childhood. I can not tell you how excited I am to begin this journey of discovery with my own little woman. It is with pride that I introduce Rose to the March family. Rose has found joy and intersest in the youngest of the Marches. Rose is Amy. This makes me giggle because of all the girls I leasted wanted to be like was Amy but Rose loves her and so do I.

Screams of an infertile woman

This posting will not be judge negatively! Why, because I just emotionally can not take it. I have had it up to here. I am sick and tired of being infertile. Because unlike most of you dear readers I can not just pick a month, decide yes that is when I would like to be pregnant and *bam* 4 weeks later I am. No, I get to struggle 3 years and three miscarriages to get my beautiful daughter. And then I get to try 3 years later only to give my self a life threatening disease that will never go away (intercranial hypertension). I have the scar to prove it. I then wait another year only to have three infertility treatments not work. So I come to you in pure desperation. I am fed up and angry and upset and so on. I sit here thinking that Rose will never know the joy of having a sibling to love and hate. Someone to play with and gang up on and with. These thoughts bring me to tears. So on Wednesday we go back in to the waiting game that is infertility. I have an appointment with repromed an infertility clinic here in Adelaide to discuss where we go from here. We have been trying off and on now for a year with no luck and I have had it up to here with my body. Why am I not typing this to you some of you personally well because... your all pregnant or with new babies. I don't want to say anything that may upset you in anyway but I'm jealous. The green eyed monster has reared his ugly head and I am embracing it with open arms. This might sound horrible but I have tried ignoring it but it won't go away. So I am embracing my anger in hopes that I will find another way of dealing with this. Some of you may not know that it took over three years to get Rose. In the end we lost her twin and nearly lost her in was a very complicated delivery. Some of you were even at this wonderful and frustrating event. (Ps I still love you all for being there.) But for now I am at my ungrateful limit. Yes I should be happy with what I got. I have a beautiful and healthy 4 year old who is smarter then some 8 year olds. But me I want it all! I want another baby so send me your voodoo, your hoodo or whatever it is you do! I have gone off my rocker folks and I don't plan to get back on unless I get my way (DAMNIT). Yes I am 2 years old now shut up and pass the sippy cup! Please, post only complimentary comments that do not include but are not excluded to the following sentences just be patient and it will work or if you just stop thinking about it or perhaps it isn't in Gods plan, you don't want to piss off the infertile women!

Sign of the times

I am going to be going on vacation with Rose for a week so the blog will be not be updated until I get home. So enjoy these funny signs I found and I will see you in a week. Hey I miss you already!

Little extreme.


I think I'll keep driving!


Everything you need for your "shotgun" wedding! Located in Windsor, Maine. Hussey's slogan is, "If we don't have it, you don't need it."


I don't think I saw that one.

It's a good deal, but... oh, the college costs!

Not everyone likes it that cold!

My Cat Burke


Oh yes, he does look all innocent and sweet but underneath that sweet exterior beats the heart of a maniac. Last night Burke declared war on me. Just about one o'clock in the morning Burke begin to cry. Not just any cry but the cry of an angry Burke. This cry sounds remarkable like someone saying "Mama". Burke has two distant cries one is "Mama" and the other is "Hellllooo." You heard me right my cat speaks to me. So last night Burke begins crying at first I thought it was that he wanted to be in the bathroom so twice I went in the room and turned on the light no Burke. So I go back to bed only to hear him crying again. This time I'm pissed and yelling at him. Liam rolls over and awakes only long enough to let me know that "your arguing with a cat". Yes I know I am arguing with a cat "He started it." Trust me when I say I thought I was going to end it. So I get up once more and turn on the shower and the faucet for just a moment thinking maybe my neurotic cat just wants some "fresh" water. I go back to bed only to here the distict cry of Burke.
Burke "MAMA".
Morgan- "Liam how much do you like Burke?"
Liam- "Why"
Morgan- "Cuz I'm gonna kill him."
I get up with furry in my eyes and the taste of murder on my lips. "Burke, darlin you better run." Please note it is now 2am in the morning and I am not happy. I take off after the now thrilled Burke. Whippee were playing. No, were not. I never did catch him but on my tirade around the house I found two Tyelnol PM and a glass of water. Around three am I got to bed only to be awaken by... Rose "Mama".

Red Tie Event


Yes, thank you, I do look like an opera singer! We had a black tie event for Roses school. I had 1 glass of champagne and 5 glasses of chardonnay. Yes I did dance not with Liam but my girlfriend Ann Marie. We buggied hard. So despite me balking hard at going I had fun and plan to go next year. Next time however I will avoid sitting at the head of the South Australian Church and the Head of the School.



Yes, I am a chunky monkey
