I started back to work today as well. Let's just say it was very hard to get back in the routine after being off for two weeks. But it went well and I was in a good mood ALL day - this was a nice change!
When I got home from work, I checked the mail and YAY! I won something! A few weeks ago, I entered for a chance to win a necklace from a fellow blogger. So I want to say thanks to Kerry at Our New Normal for picking me as the winner of this beautiful necklace from Premier Designs. You can read her blog by clicking on the link above.
I have been thinking a lot lately about getting a tattoo. I don't really feel like I am the "tattoo type", but I seriously want one. The one I picked out has meaning to me and I just can't get it out of my head. This infertility journey has changed Ryle and I in many ways. And we are so much stronger as a couple and individually because of it. I think I want to get the word "believe" on my wrist with the infertility awareness ribbon behind it. Is that a crazy idea?! I know that I may not be "infertile" forever, but it has been a MAJOR part of our life for the past three years (plus it's not over yet). And I have to constantly tell myself to believe that anything is possible. In fact, I think that's part of my new year's resolution: To stay positive and believe that anything is possible.
I want this with the pomegranate colored ribbon behind it for infertility
So you can be honest and leave a comment on the blog and tell me if you think it's a crazy idea or not. And it will be hidden while I am teaching by my watch, so the kids won't see it.
One last update: I got a deer over Christmas break! Not the one I wanted, but this one showed up by our stand. He had already been shot in the back leg by another hunter the night before. He was limping, but not bleeding anymore. When we saw him, two coyotes were circling him and just messing with him. I guess they knew he was wounded. So I just couldn't let them get him. I had to shoot. Here's a picture of him ...
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I'll update as soon as I know something more about our treatment cycle!
