Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve updated…a few months at least. I wish I could say those months have been uneventful, but that’s not so much the case. We’ve been busy with life, with work, and with this house…so much so that nearly every free moment of mine has been sucked up in one way or another.
A recap since October: our IVF cycle failed (nothing made it to transfer), one of our cats got sick (she’s doing better, but not “cured”), our work went through massive restructuring and laid off 2000 employees worldwide, and my brother died unexpectedly. It’s been challenging, but I can honestly say I’ve never felt closer to J than after all of these unexpected happenings in our lives. It really is true that there are hidden blessings in most of life’s problems.
But today is Christmas. Today, I am warm and happy in my home, with the love of my life and our three fur-children. We are happy and (relatively) healthy (stupid cold), and I couldn’t really ask for much more. I realize that there are many out there that don’t have these blessings, which saddens me and makes me even more appreciative for what I do have.
I’d like to wish you all a very merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or even just a great day. I hope to make a more regular appearance in the coming weeks, so hopefully you all will be seeing more of me.
