So Jamie at The Perpetual Page Turner had this post that I really liked titled If We Were Having Coffee..
She came up with the idea from Ashely at Your Super Awesome Life
and I have to say that I really loved reading it. I will be posting
from time to time an if we were having coffee post just to let you all
know what is going on in my life at the moment.
So here we go...
If we were having coffee....
tell you that I am incredibly happy that 2014 is here. 2013 has been
an incredibly difficult year for me and my husband. We started the year
off with 2 big car repairs (right after buying and moving into a home).
It continued with my husband losing a part of his finger and being on
disability for 3 months. D also started a new job shortly after that and
his anxiety was through the roof. This coupled with some fertility
issues has caused some tough times in our marriage. I am using 2014 as a
fresh start and looking forward to more positivity this year.
If we were having coffee...
tell you that I am having a very difficult time with my fertility
lately. I just finished round 6 of clomid (a drug that helps me
ovulate) and I am currently waiting to see if I actually got pregnant.
We have been trying to conceive for a year and half now. Out of 6
rounds on clomid, I have ovulated a grand total of 3 times. In the
beginning while I was frustrated about the situation I felt like I was
handling things well. I have to admit that right now, I am not in the
best of spirits. Every month I get my period is a huge disappointment.
I also have a fairly tight knit group of friends that I've known since
high school. There are 10 women in this group and there are currently 4
of them who are pregnant. I love these girls and I am genuinely happy
for them but I have to admit to being slightly jealous. It's been quite
difficult remaining positive but I will keep on trucking on. Hopefully
there will be good news in the new year.
If we were having coffee...
tell you that I am loving being back at my school this year teaching
grade 1. I am truly blessed to be surrounded by some amazing people.
The people that I work with have been so supportive and really are good
friends. After a pretty rough week I came back to work and found a
Starbucks coffee on my desk with a sweet note. I also found a KitKat
bar to "give me a break" and I was given several hugs. I am fortunate
enough to really enjoy going to work every day and some days I actually
have to pinch myself because I can't believe I actually get paid to do
what I do. The students make me smile every day and I love the staff I
work with. I am also excited to be involved in our musical this year.
We are performing The Little Mermaid Jr. and we spent the last few weeks
before the break sitting in on auditions for the students. I am jointly
in charge of the set and I'm really looking forward to it.
If we were having coffee..
tell you that I am dedicated to improving my blogging and reading this
year. Last year was a tough year and I kind of lost my lust for life.
As a result my reading was down and so was my blogging. This year is a
new year and I hope to make the blog a little better.
Well, I hope this post wasn't too boring or too negative. I look forward to hearing what is going on in your lives too.
Happy New Year and Happy Reading!
