We can't see the future but I know that if I have six months left with my husband before he goes overseas then I want him all to myself. There are also simple pleasures that I miss, or we missed out on, by always having someone here. Like.. we want to walk around in our underwear on the weekends .. or lay around (wink wink) all weekend on the couch. I also know it's the small stuff that really matters. I want to be able to spend Thanksgiving and Christmas, especially Christmas, with my husband before he is gone for two years. (possibly)
IVF is a huge reason. I want to be as de-stressed and relaxed as possible (which I feel is an oxymoron). Having people in your home all the time is stressful. Knowing that we are at the end of that road.. I want to make sure that we are giving it 110%. Our retrieval date is set (you can read about that here) and knowing it will go into 2015 if this round isn't successful is very stressful.
Whatever life throws us I know we will be able to handle. We believe that it's now time to take the venture on our own. It's been a great ride and we've really enjoyed a majority of the experiences. I'm excited to start this new chapter.
