A writing rut

Despite the fact that dear hubby and I had a wonderful weekend, I am in a bit of a writing rut.  I feel desire to write, but everything that seems to come out is incoherent trash.  Therefore this is going to a very brief update.

David and I are really coming to terms with the infertility issues we are facing.  I even went to a baby shower yesterday and was able to get through it without any feelings of resentment (and only a twinge of sadness).  David also wanted to tell his parents so we told them over the course of the weekend as well. They are both very supportive and keeping us in their prayers.  At this point, we need to schedule David's semen analysis and then just wait for my period to continue.  Technically, I'm still not sure if my doctor has given the green light for the treatment, but I don't want to bother her again (it's only been a week).

My lungs have been a bit junky over the past week, but it seems like they are getting better on their own.  Last week I did have some blood in my sputum, but I think it came from my sinuses/throat.  I did, however, back off of hyper-sal and Cayston for a day or two to let whatever was open heal.  Hopefully everything stays healed and no more blood presents itself.

Other than that, I'm just getting ready for Thanksgiving (a week and a half away!!!) and Christmas.  I'm ready to decorate the house, and I think I may start hauling boxes downstairs as early as tomorrow.  Decorating usually takes me a full week for Christmas.  I can't wait to share pictures of the house and how cute it looks when I'm done this year.  Each year, we add to our Christmas decorations...I wonder what our new addition will be this year??

To get me into the Christmas mood, I've been blaring Christmas music (yes, I'm one of those people).  I have been listening to it since November 1..possibly a bit earlier?  Our one radio station here changed over to 24/7 Christmas music Wednesday of last week which has just caused me to get even MORE excited.  I'm sorry to those who hate Christmas music and early Christmas decorating. I know I'm a bit eccentric, but I love it :)

As we head into another full week, I am grateful for family dinners.  My parents had us over last Friday and it was such a nice time.  We had pot roast with potatoes, carrots, and garlic bread.  Both David's family and mine really enjoy family dinners together. We are very blessed to live so close to our families and to be able to share a nice meal with them on a regular basis.

What are YOU grateful for today?


  1. I am grateful for quiet mornings! After a really hectic and busy fall, it's nice to have a week that looks like it will give me some time to rest and recuperate and just enjoy life.

  2. I LOVE Christmas too!! I don't even mind all the Christmas decorations in stores before Halloween because I just love Christmas that much! I have yet to turn on the Christmas music, but I may just start. Can't wait to see pics. I need to invest in some cute decorations because we really only have a few.

  3. Cindy - I am also grateful for quiet mornings as i love them too! I'm glad you have the opportunity to use them as a time to reflect and enjoy life :)

    Inhaling Hope - I'm so glad you're in the same boat as me! :) I start looking at Christmas decorations before Halloween even arrives. We try to buy decorations right after Christmas so that they are 50% off of normal price, but sometimes we can't help ourselves and have to pick something up when we see it! :) You'll have to let me know when you turn the music on :)
