Back to Blogging

So I've been thinking a lot lately about blogging again, but today I was reading an article, "My Shrink Says...Blog!" in the Newsweek from last week and decided there is no better time to start than right now! This is supposed to be my "creative outlet" and my "medicine".

I have so much to get caught back up on... Let's see...We have been in our house 9 months or so now and absolutely still love it. The neighborhood is fantastic and we love our neighbors. In fact our immediate neighbors we have practically became best friends with! Its not uncommon for us to be sitting in our driveways a couple evenings a week chatting away with various neighbors. We also have a couple dog sitter options. I feel so safe in the neighborhood, too. If you remember way back when... We HATED our neighbors in our old neighborhood. Everyone in that neighborhood was so anti-social. If you were outside others would go in, no one ever waved at you, it just plain sucked. I couldn't ask for any better neighbors than the ones I have now.

I originally started this blog for a couple of reasons. My first post was 9/12/03. We had just began trying to conceive our first child and had only been married since April of the same year. I had no idea I'd be sitting here 5 years later without a single child. Honestly I thought I'd have 2 and be done by now... Boy does life throw you curve balls time and time again. There are times I look back and think "Thank god I wasn't pregnant" especially when my brother passed away. I've come to terms with some things in my life and there are still things I struggle with. All in all I think I am becoming a better person and I'm sure I will continue down that route.

I feel like I've written enough for today. Actually work is calling me and I need to get back to it. The plan is to get back to posting nearly every day. I'll try to post pictures as well. If you are still reading my blog, please let me know with a little comment saying "hi!". Just curious who is still out there checking in on me.

I still check in to see if you've updated...I've got you on my favorites along with your friend Jennifer. Glad to hear you are well and are going to get back into the blogging world...something I'd love to do soon as well.

I still check but not too frequently because I kind of 'gave up' hope you'd keep posting. You don't know me, just a 31 year old single gal from Orange County, CA. I think I found your blog from Jen's blog and I have no idea how I even found Jen's blog but it was the first blog I ever found before I even know what a blog was...and that was about two year's ago. Keep posting and I'll definitely keep reading! Best wishes.

Hi - It's so good to see you back. It's Laura from "I'm Still Waiting" ... I'm not blogging there anymore, but I still check in on my blogroll to see how everyone's doing. Hope you'll write more again!

Hey there!

I check on ya at least once a week! Love to hear more from you!

I found your blog through Jemmers. Praying for you. I know how hard the infertility struggle can be. Have hope, though. I'm now 37 weeks pregnant (fifth pregnancy) and he will be my first birth. I also have a 3.5 year old foster daughter too. Take care. I look forward to reading more of your posts!
