Weekend updates

Nothing too crazy or too exciting happened this weekend. Here's a recap of all that went on:

-Missed my husband like crazy, since he works nights (Wed-Sat). I really have trouble sleeping without him. One would think that after over 2 years of this I would have learned to deal with it...not so much. So, if you are one of those woman that have the blessing of getting to have their husbands home everynight...hold them a little extra tight tonight, kiss them one more time and ask God to help you not to take those special moments for granted. I will say, it has definitely helped me to really appreciate him being home the other three nights (it's like Christmas morning!!).

-The Rangers and the Cowboys lost. Boo.

-The Aggies won. WHOOP!

-We drove southbound 35 to pick up some old baby stuff from my SIL. Their little one is going to be 3 in January and they are not having anymore (another story for another time) and so they are giving away a lot of their old baby stuff. My MIL helps women who are in crisis pregnancies and so she is going to use some of that for those moms and then she said that her and I are going to go through the stuff, since it's REALLY nice (my SIL is the type to buy a $50 pair of shoes for a 3 month old...) and pick some stuff out that my DH and I want for our future miracles. Still holding onto that hope...

-No word back from our housing situation. We should hear back today or sometimes this week. The last bit is waiting on the bank and the VA (Veteran's affairs). Closing date, if all goes as planned, is still scheduled for the 30th of this month.

-I'll be 27 on October 2nd. Crazy, not quite where I thought I would be at that point in my life but also, feeling rather fortunate for all the amazing blessings that God has given me thus far...

-Last night we watched "Did you hear about the Morgans?"...yeah, IF was mentioned in the movie in case you hadn't seen it. During a random stay, they did it (for lack of better words!) and weren't "trying" really and SHOCKINGLY, they ended up getting pregnant. Insert sarcasm here. I SO saw that coming. I told me DH that it's amazing what happens when you stop trying and just get pregnant. Then I told him we should try that, ha. Insert more sarcasm. And I KNOW that some people do get pregnant when they stop trying, but for a lot of us that have something actually causing their infertility (PCOS for example) sometimes, it's not that simple.

-This cycle I am going to try my damnedest NOT to or read into things. I want to offer it up. Really, REALLY offer it up. Last cycle was quite exhausting trying to read into everything.

I did this post in bullets because I knew that if I tried to write out an actual post it would be all over the place...doing it as bullets makes complete sense of the "random, jumping around-ness" ;)

I hate sleeping alone too!
Happy early birthday! I just turned 27 in August, and it is so crazy how much closer to 30 it sounds than 26! haha
I'm intrigued to hear the story of your SIL...

Praying for you as you approach another birthday. My 30th was the hardest...not where I thought I would be at 30, childless!
Also understand when anyone says, (movie or real life) that once you relax and stop TTC, you will just get pregnant. For those with long term infertility caused by something (for me it is endometriosis), you don't just get pregnant by relaxing. It angers me like nothing else when people say that. Last month, my fil said "now that you adopted, we are expecting you to get pregnant". Notice, the word expecting. I don't think so, after 9 years of TTC that is just happens like that. So, I told them, don't get your hopes up, I am having a hysterectomy soon (to get him to stop talking about it).

I wouldn't know what to do with myself if Mr. JB wasn't home with me every night! I'm so spoiled! I will give him that extra big hug when he gets in from his walk.

I can't wait to hear your SIL's story!

I would hate it if my dh wasn't home every night. I have a hard time sleeping without him!
I could not watch that movie, I think we watched about 15 min of it and turned it off.
You'll have to tell us about your SIL's story!
