Warning: Random thought post in progress! My wife's cousin is Buddhist (the only one in her giant family of Southern Baptists) and invited us to a class yesterday. I must say that I really liked it. It was open to the public in our museum of art. Afterwards, we saw a Monet impressionist exhibit there. Something about being surrounded by beautiful things makes you feel so calm and peaceful. I love art and the feelings it can evoke from you. It was a really good distraction day. I left feeling great and a lot more enlightened. I have been meditating daily already to calm my nerves and it has helped TREMENDOUSLY. (I use this FREE app on my phone and I love it!) We bought a book and a meditation cd and I think we may be going back for a few more lessons.

So I peed on more tests than I care to admit! I have done some research on the particular tests that I took and just how sensitive they are. I found two decent websites here and here that compare Hpts. Also, I think one of my fellow bloggers may have posted about this a while ago but I think this page is fascinating.
Here's some of my own new bathroom art:

I got a faint + on day 6 (1st on the left)
a strong + on day 7 of this 88 cent test!
|The line didn't get too much darker but you def don't have to squint as hard :)|
|No special decoding skills necessary|
So that's it folks! Sorry it was such a willy-nilly post, but such is my life lately. Feeling very guarded but incredibly thankful! And even though I was feeling crazy about praying and not feeling secure in my faith, someone somewhere heard my prayers and I cannot deny that. I won't take one second of this amazing blessing for granted. Again, thanks so much for your kind words and hopeful wishes, it means A LOT. I hope that all of my blog friends are hearing good news soon too!
