Welcome to all readers- old and new! I’m very excited to be participating in my very first ICLW. I’m one of the new kids on the block- my blog is in it’s infancy, not even two months old. I wanted to participate this month in order to meet some more of the lovely people in the ALI blogosphere, explore some new blogs, and if I’m really lucky, maybe even draw a reader or two my way! So, it’s nice to meet you all… feel free to hang around, read a post or two, and of course, leave a comment! That’s what this is all about, right?
A little bit about me (you can read a lot about me here and here, if you choose)- I’m 40 years young, happily married with a very precocious three year old daughter, whom I conceived through IUI. Our pursuit of the ever-elusive 2.0 has recently come to an end, after three years of trying, four heartbreaking losses, and sadly, no take-home baby. This blog is all about what happens after infertility, with a particular focus on coping with the reality that no matter how hard we try, sometimes we don’t end up with exactly what we dreamed of. It has been a tough road, and I am neck-deep in the grieving process right now, but nevertheless, I feel very fortunate to have many blessings in my life.
I have nothing particularly insightful or important to say today- I am simply spending a quiet couple of days with my family after a rather dramatic, stressful and upsetting week. A little dose of normalcy was definitely in order for this weekend, so yesterday, I got my hair cut and coloured, we went furniture shopping, caught up on a few episodes of Breaking Bad, and did laundry. On the agenda for today is a short run, and lots of cleaning, in preparation for the start of an extremely couple of busy weeks at work. Sounds pretty boring, but sometimes, status quo is good.
Happy Sunday, everyone! And have a great week! Happy commenting!
