Here I go...The ABCs

Okay, I am going to attempt to do the ABCs of me to introduce myself to the ICLW world! Here I go...

A- Adoption, I'm beginning to wonder if this is what God is challenging us to do?

B- Baby, obviously trying really hard to have one!

C- Christmas, my favorite holiday and time of year. I swear everyone is nicer and then it's all over. I wish it could last all year long!

D- Debt, trying to pay it all off so that hubby and I can afford to have a child, either through IVF or adoption."

E- Endurance, through infertility, we have gained a lot of endurance and I know we are better people because of it.

F- Family, it is extremely important to me. Even though they can sometimes drive you crazy, they make you who you are. I can't wait to add to ours.

G- God, I have learned that without him, there is no hope and He will get us through this.

H- Hawaii, my husband and I went last year and I can't WAIT to go back!!

I- Insurance, I hate insurance. Ours won't cover ANYTHING.

J- Jesse, my husband, my soul-mate, my best friend, I love him!

K- Karaoke, I LOVE watching others do this, but need to have a TON of liquid courage to do myself! :)

L- Low sperm count, this is something we are dealing with. UGH!

M- Music, I love listening to music and relating to it, listening to the words and really taking it all in.

N- New Kids on the Block, I loved them as a child and had a new spark with seeing them in concert TWICE in the past 10 months! :)

O- Oatmeal and Raisin cookies, my fave!! YUM!

P- Peanut, my little cuddle bud dog who I adore.

R- Reading, I love to read and unwind. I have done a much better job this year of actually reading books during the school year!

S- Sparty, my first furbaby who is the best dog in the world!

T- Teaching, my passion in life. Thank goodness for summers though! :)

U- United, Jesse and I have never been more united spiritually or emotionally. One of the "blessings" of infertility.

V- Vegetables, I LOVE them. I especially like broccoli, green beans and green peppers yum!

W- Wonder, I often wonder why God chooses the people he does to deal with infertility. I wonder what else we are supposed to learn, but I have hope and faith.

X- eXercise, it is my true stress relief and way for me to unwind and feel good about myself.

Y- Yoga, I love to do yoga. It's so relaxing and peaceful. I wish I could do it more often.

Z- Zero, the number of times I've been pregnant!

hey Michelle, it's Michelle....you know, the Michelle who's a teacher?!?!? (how many of those have you crossed paths with? I've lost count) Happy ICLW, and I will be answering your question re: adoption in a post in the very near future...probably a good week to blog about it!

Hi there, just stumbled onto your blog from stirrup-queen and thought I'd say "hi".

I love your "ABC's" idea and am totally going to steal it for one of my posts. It's such a great idea!

Happy ICLW!

Thanks for the visit to my blog and happy ICLW too!

What a great list...good luck with the moving forward to adoption thing if it is where you feel your heart (God) is leading you. That's what got us there!

Happy ICLW :-) I'm not sure if I could come up with enough random factoids for an ABC post...good job!

junebug said...

Yeah on the debt free effort. We have been working on it for the past 8 months. We are getting so close and it feels good. It is hard though putting off some of the IUI's and adoption efforts while we save the money. I wish you luck.

Thanks for sharing! I am hoping to go to Hawaii next year, but we'll see!! And, I completely agree with your W...I, too, wonder how God picks people to deal with infertility. It has certainly changed who I am and my thoughts about life. Hope you get your BFP very soon!!

Thanks for visiting my blog. My bro in law lives in Hawaii with our cousin. We went for our first time in Feb 2008. Beautiful. We have low sperm count issues as well and I am broken too. Visit our website to learn more about our non profit.
