Hello to everyone from ICLW! Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I am April. I have been married to P. for 2.5 years. My husband has a daughter from his previous marriage, J., also known as the young'un. She is 10.5 and is a delightful child hell bent on becoming a large bratty teen. It's fun.

P. and I have been trying to have a child of our own since we got married in 2007. We have recently gotten the diagnosis of anovulatory and have done a round of clomid just after the holidays. Unfortunately, we both became sick the week of baby making and no baby making happened. I'm at the end of the clomid cycle now, am waiting to hear back about my bloodwork so we will know if the clomid in this dose worked or if we're moving to a higher amount.

Since this is ICLW, here is a list of 10 things about me:

1. I play violin and have since I was 8 years old.
2. I crochet, a lot.
3. I'm addicted to Lego Indiana Jones 2 on the Wii.
4. I love to read and have at least 1 book in my purse most of the time.
5. I want to be on What Not to Wear just so that maybe I can look really good and get to go to NYC for a week.
6. I have never dyed my hair.
7. I do not buy shoes and purses. Instead I buy yarn like there is no tomorrow some months.
8. I wear bifocals and have since I was 10. I don't like to wear contacts so I still wear glasses.
9. I drink mint tea a lot. I have a cup sitting next to me now and will have at least 3 more today.
10. I am terrified of snakes. I can't even stand to see a picture of one, I'm so scared of them.

And that's all I've got. Please, feel free to wander about and poke around my blog. Thanks for stopping by!

Hey April!

What a great post.

I hate snakes too! I love to read. And, I adore mint tea.

I hope you have a great week and happy ICLW.

Hmm snakes don't bother me BUT I'm still in shock that you've never dyed your hair LOL

Hope the next cycle goes just as planned and you get a BFFP!

I like mint tea, too. And I played violin for several years but haven't touched one for at least 10 years now. It's better that way - Lol!

Oh, and the mint tea thing again. I make sure to grow plenty of mint every year so I can make fresh mint tea. But it has to be iced mint tea. I only like plain hot tea with cream and sugar - none of those extra flavors added. Aren't you glad you know all of this stuff about me? I'm just rambling on and on....

I want to be on WNTW, too. Just so I would have the excuse to spend money.

I'm petrified of snakes.

Fun list.

I giggled when I saw you mention IN Jones because my nephew is addicted to it! He makes my BIL play with him at every possible moment.

Wishing you the best of luck with your next cycle.
