This is has been one hell of a week. It's been a moment since I've sat down to talk with you all.
So many things to cover and I feel this post is going to be long.
First. We are adjusting nicely. It's crazy with four adults, two kids, four dogs and two cats! It's an amazingly huge adjustment for all parties. The dogs aren't handling the transition as well; Gideon isn't adjusting very well I should say. So far with the men at work us ladies have been putting the house in order. The kids start school next week ~ which will be another adjustment. Knowing their belongings are still in route we are doing the best we can with what we have. I have no complaints.. actually I'm beyond grateful for all the things that this family has done in just a short week. I'll leave that for another blog post.
Second. The fertility treatments started last Friday. This should be a blog post in itself as well.. so lets just say that everything is going great! It's been a huge adventure with everything going on right now. This medicine requires constant blood draws so I have been going to the hospital almost everyday.. which has been fun ~ NOT!
Third. With all the stress and different things that have changed so drastically in the past 15 days ~ great things happen. Miracles actually. Without sharing to much about a topic I'm not supposed to speaking about... I will say that I'm happy. When you hear that someone so close to you gets the one thing you've been working for it's ~ well a mute moment. The excitement hits you first and then the reality. It almost becomes a selfish temper tantrum that takes over the excitement of the situation. When good things happen to people, that have worked just as hard as you have, it's an encouraging moment. It's a shove that your moment might come too. It's hard not to be a little jealous and envious but you take a step back and know that they deserve these miracles too. It's been a silent struggle for me. It's been a tearful struggle. Struggle of shear happiness and a struggle of "why not me's". Not to say that I'm not hysterically overjoyed because I am, I just had to take a moment to cry in my beer.
Truth is .. I'm glad this person finally got their slice of happiness. I'm so excited that I've been able to have been apart of the struggle and ecstatic that I'm apart of the celebration.
That's all I've got for this Friday's update. I wanted to make sure that I wrote to update everyone that everything is fine. Hopefully I can get a couple of scheduled posts done before this next week just disappears. I hope everyone has a great week.
