the one where I say goodbye

Turns into the one where I fill you in on life... again....

I logged on tonight deciding that it would be my last post, but then I started catching up on what I've missed for the last few weeks.... Newlywoodwards are moving into their beautiful home!  I've loved watching their progress and can't wait to see all of the finishing touches.... Shannon at Living My Life on Purpose, her little girls are so precious.... Jenny at Lucky In Love, well she was probably my first bloggie friend and I love watching her precious Natalie keep getting bigger!

So I've decided I'll keep blogging, at least for now.

What's new with me?  Well, everyone else talks about their engagements and their jobs and their pregnancies.... me, well I'm just trying to get pregnant!  You'd think (at least I do) that a person who already has 2 babies that it would be easy to get pregnant again.  Well you are thinking wrong!  This past month was our first go around with fertility drugs and I'm sad to say that we weren't successful.  I had to go in for lab work this week and unfortunately my progesterone level wasn't as high as it needs to be, bummer, but, we'll try again.  We do talk about adoption every now and then, especially now that we're a year into this process.... but we'll see!

We're about to have a new family member! Remember my gender reveal party?  It's hard to believe but Emily and Lonnie are about to welcome their new bundle of joy any day now!  Induction is scheduled for the 11th if he doesn't come on his own.  This makes me very happy because Sage and I are flying out on the 12th to head to Mexico for a week... I've been pretty worried for the last 9 months that I would miss Eli's grand entrance!  Lucky for me, and I think for Eli too, I'll still be in Kansas! ;)

Work.... well work is work.  I'm adjusting/adapting, this is new for me.  I used to work full time but that hasn't been for 2 1/2 years.  It's a big adjustment and I'm working on coping with the struggles that I'm having because of this.  Sage is finally back to work, for at least a month now, and we couldn't be happier!  He was always so depressed not being able to work every day.

Anyone remember that I own a second house that we use as a rental?  Well we do, and about 6 weeks ago I evicted them they had to be out today.  Holy mess.... they must have quit mowing the yard about 6 weeks ago, they left all of their trash, they didn't clean or repaint.  Can we say, sorry no deposit return for you!

So that's it in a nutshell.... I'm going to try and get better at blogging again.  Tasty Tuesday was fun but I've neglected to upload photos of my recipes... finding that extra 5 minutes is tough I tell ya  ;)

Hope that everyone has a great weekend!!!!

Glad you're not saying goodbye! I go through phases where I want to throw in the towel too, but something keeps brining me back!

I read your title and was like "NO!" I'm so glad you're not leaving :) And thanks for the mention :) You are too sweet! I really need to get back into blogging regularly. It's so hard to find the time these days.
