Lupron, New Nephew, and Everything Else

Long time, no blog I know I know! I have committed to two posts a week, at least. So don't worry, I won't leave you hanging again!

So I am about to get my third Lupron shot. It hasn't been too bad so far. I have had some hot flashes, night sweats, and some mood swings for sure. But I can't really tell if the mood swings are because of the shots or because of everything in general. My life seems to have been a roller coaster lately. I have always wanted nothing more than to be a mom....and that is the thing I am having to work hardest at. But I guess good things come to those who wait right? And hard work pays off?? We'll see. It is very very very hard not to be discouraged through this difficult time in my life, but it has brought me much closer to God and to my husband, so that is one positive thing that has come out of this so far. Hopefully within the next year I will be pregnant and have that to be positive about too! =)

Moving on to other things consuming my life, my "sister in law" (husband's little brother's girlfriend [18] ) is having her baby on Wednesday! Well...they are starting her on medicine on Tuesday night to induce I guess it could be Tuesday or Wednesday! I am really excited about it, his name will be Tristyn David. I can't wait to meet him! And of course I will give details when he makes his arrival!

Everything else has been pretty normal I suppose. My step son finished Kindergarten last week. He is officially a first grader now. It is so hard to believe. I love him very much, I haven't shared a lot about him, but a post about that is coming very very soon =) My husband has been traveling a lot for work lately, so that hasn't been great...but absence makes the heart grow fonder...right? I am very ready for him to finish school so he can stop travelling so much! I don't like my job at all, but now that I am taking these shots I have to stay put...I am also ready for my husband to finish school so that I don't have to work anymore! I am not sure how all these women stay home and can afford things, but I am pretty sure it's because their husbands went to college!

Well that is what is going on with me right now! I can't wait to get back into the swing of things...I have so many exciting posts coming soon! Good night everyone!

So I have been gone for a while...

Well folks I know I have been gone for a while, but it was definitley a good thing! I have been doing some serious soul searching anf trying really hard to get back to the person I really am, not the one everyone thinks I should be. Over the past few months I have started listening to pop music, pondering getting my nails done, gossiping, and skipping out on church. Now, not that listening to pop music or getting your nails done is a bad thing, it is well, just not me. I like country music for the most part and rock (which is strange but oh well) and I keep my nails short and tidy. So what's with me becoming this other person? Heck if I know. I guess sometimes I just feel like I need to be someone else in order for certain people to accept me. LIke the music I listen to, the clothes I wear, the things I do to my nails and hair, all of these things dealing with my appearance and material things.
But what really matters is what God, my husband, and my step son think about me. And that's pretty much it, and I can tell you right now that I know for a fact they like the real me better! So folks from here on get the real me! Ha! =) So you better get ready because the real me is...well me.

P.S. I got an email a couple of days ago from the blog designer...remember that contest I won a while back? Oh it's soo cute! Can't wait for everyone to see it!!
