Internetz, how can it be September already?! Is it just me, or did the summer fly by?
I want to thank some of you for the sweet emails sent my way asking if all was well and wondering why I have been so quiet. Let me assure you that I am totally fine. But time seems to have been passing me by so quickly these days and all my good intentions to blog seem to go out the window before I can even consider them.
It's been a great summer. Beautiful weather, some time off - even work itself hasn't been too crazy lest one week or so of drama. It feels like only yesterday it was late June and I was gearing up for some holiday time - then I blinked - and here we are - September 7. Crazy.
On the fertility front, we are still on break and honestly, it feels like ages before we will be pursuing treatment again. If you're just tuning in, we're looking ahead to our first (and possibly only) IVF attempt in the new year sometime. Finances are playing a big role in our decision to wait - but yours truly is also on a weight loss mission to get myself in better shape if we do go ahead with things.
It's funny though, I've been much more relaxed on this break. I've had treatment breaks before - granted for not as long - but I've always been really antsy during them. Like I could be missing that one "golden egg" while on break. But this time? Not so much. I can't really explain it, but for the first time in a long time, I've felt, well, almost at peace with everything. I know!
Maybe it's in part due to the fact that Irish Boy and I have been discussing other family building options. Hey, we're on break, it doesn't hurt to talk! That in itself feels exciting.
That said, I hope you'll keep reading - because I promise to start posting more often! And hey, I'm kind of funny sometimes, so it'll be worth your while. Pinky swear.
I hope as we move into the fall (did I just type that?!), you have nothing but good things come your way, Internetz.
I'm back, baby!
