Beyond Infertility

This and That

There really isn’t much to report right now.  We are busy living life.  I haven’t been home for more than one consecutive week in months.  I expect that to change after next week’s trip to a Southern city to help my cousin, her husband, and daughter move here to where I live.  I’m super excited about them moving here.  I adore her like a sister, and it will be nice to have more family around.

Things have been good here in the past two/three weeks.  Prior to that things in my married life were utter crap in the marriage department. I’m not surprised since, well, um…we’ve had a lot of crap fall our way in the past year.  So, we are both working our way through that.  We’ve had a lot of honest conversation, and have found somewhat of a groove.  The introduction of babysitters has helped as well.  We need dates.  It has also helped that I have gotten a break here and there.  I was suffering emotionally and physically from some serious burnout.

Pink is teething in a HUGE way.  Her teeth are coming in out-of-order, and she is miserable.  Blue is now in preschool, and this frees up a few hours each week.  To be honest, I needed him to go to school.  We both needed school.  He needs other children, a different authority, and a chance to learn new things.  I needed a moment to breathe.

So, we are doing our best to keep everything in working order around here.  As for me, I’m just happy that things are going so much better now.



  1. I’m glad you can breathe.

    I put K in preschool two days a week this Fall, she did one this Summer and it was a HUGE blessing to me. I’m looking forward to two days a week to do whatever I need to do. Errands, mopping, dishes, a haircut!, lunch with a friend, whatever…

    Take care of yourself and hope you can heal the marriage.

  2. When things hit the fan with kids, the marriage usually gets put on the back burner. I am glad to hear that you aren’t letting things smolder, and are getting them out. Hubby and I are the king and queen of not addressing issues then at some point things really hit the shitter. We have been able to rally every time, but it’s hard. When the two of you have some quiet time (yeah, right;) stop and think about the reasons that you fell in love to begin with…it helps recenter your thoughts.

  3. You have had so much thrown at you in the past while, it is no wonder you have had a tough time with your husband. I hope your groove keeps on groovin’.
