HAPPY NEW YEARS EVE!!!
I hope that you have a wonderful time celebrating a bad/good 2008 while you help all us infertiles ring in a hopeful & eventful 2009!
I have to say that although we did not end up having a 2008 baby like we all would have hoped, I did have a wonderful year. I do love my life and all that is included in it and all the wonderful people that I love & the ones that love me. Although we all have wonderful lives something is in fact missing. I have to learn to accept that because frankly the way I feel and the way I have been feeling is not going to get me a baby any sooner. Especially the crap that flies out of my mouth to my husband and family about how this infertility sux!!! And having this anxiety and thinking about all the people that are pregnant before me isn't going to help my body. Why cant I just get over it and forget about it...it certainly would be better for my body and my piece of mind...But, I guess it just doesn't work that way!
Although I had to endure hearing of 7 pregnancies...alot of wonderful things happened:
~We went to St.Marten on vacation in April
~We went to Portsmouth for a mini 5 day vacation over the summer
~We went to Cancun in November
~We threw a intimate, somewhat splashy 35Th Anniversary party @ The Capital Grille for my parents
~We had a blast cooking out at my sisters pool all summer
~We shared in the birth of our new niece Charlotte
~We added on a patio and finished remodeling the 3rd bathroom in our house
~I got a new car - GMC Acadia!
~I lost 15lbs on Weight Watchers
~As Jack says...we put up an 10 foot Christmas tree that didnt fall down!
~Jack got a new company SUV
I would say that although we were not able to have a baby we did have a lot of fun and a lot of wonderful blessings this year. To that I am very thankful for because there are people out there that don't even have that!
So to all you infertiles....although our club sux to be a part of and we hope that there are not many more newcomers...we should be thankful for the things we do have and hope that when New Years comes next year we are able to be thankful for the baby that 2009 brought!
