The Big Fat Confession, Part Two

So where did we leave off…? Oh right. Two lines on a non-expired pregnancy test. YEAH.  THAT. Upon discovering that the previously peed-upon expired test may not have been hurtfully wrong after all, I finally told the husband what I’d discovered.  Like me, he was skeptical and doubtful, and basically every negative feeling that comes

The Big Fat Confession

I’ve been sitting on a secret. It’s kind of a big one. I’ve struggled with keeping it, but ultimately, I stand by my decision as it kept others from suffering, and allowed the husband and me time to process and deal with some things… So, without further ado, here’s my confession. ***** Back at the

Ermahgerd, you guys.

I suck, I know.

It’s been like… a MONTH since I’ve posted anything.  Seriously?  A whole month??!


Anyway, it’s not like I’ve had a hot second, to be honest.

Things have been crazy around here.  The husband and I went to a wedding in California a couple weeks back, and that was amazing.  I’m ashamed to admit that until recently, I’d never traveled west of Iowa – being the true Midwesterner that I am – so seeing real mountains (mostly from the plane, ha), vineyards, and real California hills and countryside was pretty amazing.  The wedding was beautiful, and right in the heart of Sonoma, and we were able to visit and do some touristy things around San Francisco before we flew out, too.

Work has also been kicking my narrow behind, as well.  My boss left the company in mid-May, leaving me to handle pretty much everything in her stead.  There have been all sorts of changes going on with my company – good changes! – but I’ve been completely swamped.  The good news is that the hard work and long days have paid off, and I have been offered my boss’ old position.  It’s a pretty nice promotion, and the extra income will definitely be helpful, too!  Yay!

At the moment, I’m busy working on some details for my next support group meeting, and staying involved with RESOLVE.  Things are going really well there, too!  Our group is up to like 13 members, and I feel the support really making a difference.

It doesn’t sound like a lot, but with work taking up so much of my time, and trying to just plain live my married life the rest of the time, it’s been a pretty full month.

Things are good over here, and I’m not dead.  Figured I’d better update to at least say that much.  🙂

More soon, friends!
