I noticed Dramalish, posted asking for help picking a post for Mel for The 2007 Creme de la Creme of Infertility/Adoption Blogs and decided I wanted to look back and pick a post of my own.
I began the year finding out my best friend from middle school was headed to Iraq (she returned safely, THANK GOD!. I also learned that my only in real life infertile "friend" found out she was pregnant, we learned a few weeks later it would be twins, but I wasn't happy for her, she didn't give me a heads up, she slapped me in the face with the news. There was a total of six pregnancies this year in our office, none of them mine. I also scheduled an appointment to see a new doctor about our troubles.
In Febuary I kept busy with work. Speaking of work, another co-worker announced she was pregnant, bringing the total to seven pregnancies at work. Just how I imagined my new year would begin, not. I also started getting sick, the beginning of $10k in medical visits for 2007.
In March I continued to have medical related issues. We also debated on moving into an apartment, a house, in state, out of state, it went on for months! I also had the best birthday, so far, even if it did cause a little work drama.
April continued on with home woes, work, and family drama.
In May I was still dealing with family issues and even had a health scare with my Grandma. It also marked another Mother's day that I wasn't a mom.
June had many not so fun work days. It also marked A turning 1 years old. I also began my summer fun with my friend K, and going out of town. I can't wait until next summer!! Relationship problems also continued, who'da thunk that?
July marked 1,095.7266 days, or three years of our infertility journey. It also marked M and I's anniversary. I also got contacts this month, to help my self esteem, and I have to say, I am enjoying them still!
August, oh August. It began with us deciding to seperate for a month to sort things out. It was by far the roughest month this year emotionally. It ended with us splitting up, for good. It also marked my two years of blogging.
September began with M asking me back, and me saying "yes". He said he would work on things, I had too much invested to not give it one last shot. During this month I began getting sick for what whats three months of pneumonia.
In October I continued being sick. I also started my online jewelry making/selling. Halloween was a blast with me being a spider and A being a can of Raid! :-)
I was pretty busy in November working, but thankful to have my family this Thanksgiving.
December began my count down to vacation time. Sixteen straight days off, baby! It has been a busy month, for sure. Like the Decembers' past, this one didn't fall short of having some shitty moments. I called it quits with M, for good and I also had a wreck totaling my car.
I am not sure what 2008 has in store for me, but I am looking forward to it. I will be moving out of the apartment sometime soon. I am looking forward to going out again with the girls and trying to have a good time. I also hope to continue moving forward with my business plan for my jewelry. I have a good feeling about 2008, and have since the beginning of the year. So for now, my infertility is on the back burner, perhaps even stowed away under everything else.
I am not closing this blog down, but since M and I are seperating now, trying for a baby is no longer in the wraps. Maybe it wasn't meant to be after all. Maybe God is leading me towards the next path towards my goal of family. I will keep visiting everyones pages, I hope you don't mind. You're all still a part of me, even if I can't be there to try with you.
