I'll Be Missing You

As I'm sure all of you regulars have noticed, I have not blogged a lot lately.  I am just going through a lot right now.  I am busier at work than I have been since I changed positions last year, trying to get settled in our house, and trying to spend more time with Michael.  Also, I am just going to be honest with you.  I am having a hard time right now trying to understand why I've been TTC for a year and a half without a successful pregnancy.  Also, we are having a hard time financially right now.  Car sales hit rock bottom this month and I am not real sure how much longer we can survive if they do not come up soon.  So, anyway, I've been spending a lot of time praying and trying to focus on other things.

Kelly posted that she is taking a blogging hiatus and I think that is a fabulous idea.  I have only been online on the weekends lately anyway, so for right now, I am going to take a break.  I just need to refocus and get somethings in order.  I just need a break.

I do promise I will be back, and probably pretty soon!  I am still praying for you and will probably check in on you from time to time during my break.  You girls have gotten me through some hard times before, so I know I can't leave you now.  It is just that I know in my heart that I need to spend my time with Michael and refocus on my priorities.  I will probably check in this weekend, but if I don't, I'll see you again soon!  :-)

I continue to pray for you all the time. Sometimes we do need a break from blogging and everything else. I hope things turn around quick for you. If you need anything you know how to reach me.

Amanda, I totally understand. This week I just got to the point where I just had this random moment in which I said to myself "I'm just tired." Tired of hoping every month, tired of analyzing every pain, twinge, cramp, etc. Tired of counting calendar days. Tired of people asking me when I'm going to get pregnant, tired of watching 18 other people's kids-all the while just dying for one of my own. Tired of seeing pregnant bellies. Tired of seeing cuddly little ones everywhere I go.

I'm just so tired. We've been TTC for 2 years, and it's just getting old. I'm exhausted with it. Despite the medication I take for depression, it is creeping back in.

We should get together and have a margarita at Los Reyes and vent!

Have a nice break, and know that you are not alone. (((hugs)))

Amanda--I don't blame you at all for taking a break. I definitely have weeks or months where I seem to phase out of blogging--I don't blog on mine, I don't blog on others. I just seem to need to break away sometimes. Enjoy your time away and I hope you wind up feeling refreshed. It does always seem that everything crashes down on you at once, doesn't it. I'll be praying for you!

I know what you mean. I am going through some big transitions lately and learning to adjusting to being at work and being away from my baby. I have not been blogging like I was and I am going to try and pull it through, but I will certainly miss you while you are on your break!! Please keep in touch. I will be praying for you.

We all need a bloggy break every now and then to refocus and reprioritize!! Enjoy it!
