Debbie Downer Strikes Again

Oh my goodness! Yesterday was a bad day! Sometimes the sorrow of infertility comes back to bite you like a sucker punch to the face! My dear coworkers are so supportive, and knew I was having a bad day. We went out to lunch, and they helped me think of some happy things in my life. My friend Christina (who knows what it's like to be down) loaned me a little sign to put on my desk and I know it's true. "When you see only dark, know the light will soon return." The treadmill is my friend, and I was planning on walking on it when I got home from work yesterday, but I was so exhausted from my grumpiness, I took a nap which really helped. My dear husband even watched a chick flick with me after my nap, and didn't complain when I gave all my attention to a book my aunt loaned me instead of to him. I feel a lot better today. It's great to have the love of family and friends. Hope I can return the favor when they are feeling down!

Having fun with Uncle Tyson

We love it when our nephew comes over to play, and he especially loves his Uncle Tyson.

Look how cool my brother is!

Thanks to my brother Steve for designing the logo for our team at the MS Walk: Team Tysdog! Tyson chose his favorite, and we ordered stickers for everyone to wear at the walk. Which design did he choose? You'll just have to come join us at the MS walk and find out!! Thanks again Steve! You rock!

Tyson is Wonderful!

I've been thinking today how wonderful my husband is. It's not a rare thought for me to have, but I just want to shout it out today! When I'm stressed he eases my burden so much. This past week he's gone to the store for me, and let me take a nap or read when I'm really feeling overwhelmed. I really appreciate this, because if he had it his way, he would rather I sit next to him on the couch and snuggle with him while he watches basketball.

Thanks for taking good care of me, honey. I love you!!

New Post, finally

Hi all,
Sorry I haven't posted in forever! It's hard to wait for a baby, and sometimes I think it's better to just not post rather than be a Debbie Downer, or a Wendy Whiner. Waaaaaah! You know what I mean. So even though I am really, really struggling today, here are some good things that are going on.

As you may or may not know, the average wait for a baby with LDS family services is 2 to 3 years. So, this past weekend Tyson and I went to an open house for a local adoption agency just to check it out. They were AWESOME! They are also the most expensive in the valley. But aside from that, we had the incredible experience of meeting two birth mothers who flew here from out of state to have their babies. There was so much love in the room. Even though they are not placing their babies with any of the couples who were in the room that day, the love and gratitude in that room was almost tangible. They are giving 2 lucky couples such a beautiful gift. I am sure that their children will inherit their strength and goodness, and they will be blessed for their sacrifice. Hope we can meet our sweet birthmom soon. Until then, I will resist the temptation to wallow in hot fudge, and count my blessings instead.

Love ya!
