National Remembrance Day

So, I just found out that October 15 is a national day of remembrance for moms and dads. It's to bring awareness to loss of children by miscarriage, stillborn, and infant death. Moms and dads are supposed to light a candle at 7 pm in remembrance of their Angel Babies. We will be watching my wonderful baby sister at her marching band competition. So we won't be participating at the correct time. But, I think we will do this at some point this weekend.

We're actually doing really great right now. I have a lot of days off right now because of the Jewish high holidays. It's been really nice to have some down time.

I had blood drawn a couple of weeks ago and my pregnancy hormone levels were still at 13. So I have to go back on Friday Oct. 14 to have it tested again. I'm also going to see Dr. Egley (the high-risk pregnancy specialist) on Friday. We wanted to meet with him and ask him if there's anything we can do before we start trying again. Hopefully he will be able to give us some answers and helpful tips :) Plus he and his nurse are just really great people and I'm looking forward to meeting with them again!

We're in the middle of a SUPER busy travel time for us! Oct. 1 we were at Purdue watching the Boilers get slaughtered by Notre Dame. Oct. 8 we were in Auburn watching my baby sister march for the first time after her broken ankle. On Oct. 15 we will be at Purdue again but we will be watching Amber's marching band. On Oct. 21-22 Mark will be marching in the alumni marching band at Purdue. I will be going to watch some of his stuff. But, on the 22 I will be driving to Indy from Purdue to watch Amber's band march at semi-state and then go back to Purdue. THEN on the 29 we will hopefully be going to Indy to watch Amber's band at state! Then of course it will be November and we'll have one more Purdue football game and holiday traveling  :) Living anywhere from 4.5 - 5 hours away from all of your family stinks!

Oh, well! Gonna go get my haircut and go shopping! w00t w00t!
