It occurred to me that lately, I've posted a lot of book lists, along with some broody thoughts on fertility, but not too much about what's actually happening in our life, so here's a bit of an update.
In February, I posted that we were desperately in need of a vacation and were headed to Dominican Republic. Well, we were gone for a week last month, and it was pretty darn amazing. We stayed at an adults-only resort and spent seven blissful days taking dips in the sea, eating delicious food, and heading into the pool after the midday rush. I read several books and Gil got a lot of rest. Despite my husband getting an ear infection and hurting his ankle two days before we left, it was a good time and I wish we could go back again soon.
In December, I posted about PCOS. I don't want to go into a lot of detail about my health issues on this blog as it's very personal, but as you can gather from my last post, it hasn't been the easiest journey thus far. I've been undergoing a slew of really fun (NOT) tests, and will hopefully find out if there's anything else wrong with me and then we'll figure out where we go from here.
In terms of family, I have an adorable new nephew, Luke, who was born on March 5, while we were on vacation. I can't post a photo as his parents are adamantly against any photos on social media. I also have another niece or nephew coming in September as my step-sister is pregnant too, so my parents will double the number of grandchildren in 2014. My mom also won an award for her fabulous contributions to serving in her community, so a couple of weeks ago, we had a family celebration.
Work-wise, it's kind of same-old, same-old. I am pondering a big change, but as it's not definite, I don't want to say anything concrete yet. I honestly thought we would have kids by now and I would be a SAHM, but since that's not happening, it's forced me to pray and consider what else God might have for me, since I can't answer phones forever.
For the most part, life is good. The piles of snow are finally gone from our driveway, and I've seen enough robins in the last week to know that spring is really and truly here. Gil and I have had our struggles, but we are still finding ways to enjoy each other and laugh, and to remember that God is good.
