I'm Back!

Hi girls!!! I'm back after a much needed down time. I have missed you all so much and know I will have hours upon hours catching up on what is new with everyone. I just needed a little break for my own sanity.

Nothing is too new...Well, we've decided that we will look into adoption agencies and see what there is to offer. I think we have closed the door to donor sperm and I haven't completely given up on IVF. I just know right now is not the time. We are paying off all our debt and I'm thinking next year to look at one more opinion and we'll see. It's so hard to just step back right now, but I know nothing will happen with our finances in such a juggle as they are now. So even though it's tough, I'm handing it over to God and just TRYING to let things be right now. It's not easy and I'm sure I'll be letting you know. But I know it's what's best for us.

My mom is doing okay. She actually has her lumpectomy tomorrow. I am nervous for her, but I know she will be okay. It's just a very stressful time. Thanks for all your support and encouragement. You all are such amazing women! I am so blessed!! Please keep the prayers coming for her.

I'm officially back to work and although I was NOT excited about it in the least, I have a great group of second graders. It's nice to be on some sort of a routine. Man am I a lazy a$$ when I don't have time limits or restrictions, but it is nice for a couple months to be a complete bum!

Something pretty exciting happened a few weeks back. I actually met Kami, my blogger friend, for lunch. It was so amazing to meet someone who knew EXACTLY how I felt!! We had so much in common and both talked and talked and talked. It still amazes me we met. I think it is such a blessing.

I've missed you all and can't wait to see what's happening with all of you, but remember, I'm working now...I can't be checking all day. So it might take me awhile. Thanks for being there and understanding!! Miss you all!!!

Welcome back! Glad you had a nice, much needed break. It also sounds like you feel some peace about the IF decisions, although I know it is so hard even when you make a "decision."

I said a prayer for your mom - keep us posted!

Hey, Glad your back. First of all prayers for your mom tomorrow. I've been praying for her!
Also I think its great your exploring adoption. Just imagine the beautiful life you could change by being there mommy! What a gift. But don't worry I'll keep praying for you to be able to have your own as well.
How fun that you got to meet a fellow blogger. I'm glad you girls had fun.

I'm so jealous you got to meet Kami! She's definitely one person I'd love to meet...such an amazing, selfless person.

Welcome back sister!!! I will continue to pray for your mom honey. Also, I have a connection that can help you in the adoption process within our church. Let me know when you are ready and I can contact the lady. She was going to help me if we ended up going that route. Hugs to you and I am so glad I got to meet you too! I had so much fun!

Welcome back! Even though I know it's a bummer, a break might not be such a bad thing. Hopefully it will give you a little breathing room, and some clarity.

Thoughts and prayers continue to go your way for you and your mom.

Meeting blog friends is the coolest! I've been able to do that twice now and I love it.

I hope you have a good school year. My big sis is also a 2nd grade teacher. :)

Praying for you for direction and for your mom's health.
