Acceptance

First thing in the morning yesterday, Tom and I were supporting each other working out together, and I could tell he wasn't in the best mood. We talked and I understood where he was coming from, not being happy exactly with where he was in life right now. I was on the elliptical machine reading my Yoga Journal and feeling a little better myself about acceptance, and we had a short pep talk. About that Happiness is not about being thrilled about where you're at and what you are doing, but accepting yourself and your situation right now.

So taking that thought into my day, I tried to do that as well. I tried to accept that even though it was my day off that I'd get paged 4 times to complete a stupid spreadsheet that my boss wouldn't like the story the content tells, because he'd rather it be further ahead of schedule (Yeah, me too!). I tried to accept any issues that would come out of the sewing of the new quilt for our bed, as Tom and I tried to match up the int…

Am I A Spring Chicken or Not?

I had an epipheny the other day. As usual when I color my hair a little lighter, when I go home I realize I look a lot like my mom did at my age. Then I realize why I know what my mom looked like at my age .... I was 17 when she was 34. It's hard to believe that if I was my mom, I would have a 17-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son. It took us so long just to get our 4-year old daughter. We were married for almost 6 years before she came along, as opposed to my parents who did the pregnancy first and marriage later.

So I guess I have a habit of fooling myself that time hasn't gone by since I have a small child, but realizing how old I really am... It's a bit of a shocker. Did I mention my birthday is next month (34)? I feel like it's happened already. At least I have a month to get over this feeling and be happy to have my birthday when it happens.

We're going to Kansas City, MO for my birthday. Tom is going on a business trip and I'm going with him …

Good Morning, Blog Land!!!

Well, I'm finally taking the plunge and creating my own blog. I've been lurking on several blogs of my infertile sisters, been writing my little musings in journals for over 20 years, and I'm now entering the digital age. I guess I always liked the handwritten page, but it will be very nice to share my musings with friends (not sure about family) and my fellow bloggers.

I'm sure I'll need to put together an about me section, but I'll introduce myself for now. I'm a soon to be 34 year old woman with a husband, one daughter who is 4 years old, and a 7 month old Golden Lab puppy, as the second child is not about to come along anytime soon.

We suffer from sort of secondary infertility. I say sort of, because this is the time that it seems to have us beat. My daughter is a product of ovulation induction and IUIs (husband's no problem there!), after laporascopy to repair my endometriosis-ridden body. We immediately tried for DK2 on our own, but after h…
