Well, I suppose my first post should be an "About Me".
I am 31 years old born and bred New Englander, which means, I love the snow and I love the ocean. But I will still feel compelled to complain if the weather is one extreme or the other. ;) Currently we are eagerly awaiting spring…with snow still on the ground!
I was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis when I was six months old. I was listed as failure to thrive, meaning I wasn't gaining weight and was getting sick because of that. I have lived the last 31 years to the fullest and I intend to do the same with all the time I have left in this world. I have had moments of illness over the years, but I have been blessed with relatively good health for the last three years. I graduated college in 2006, worked for several years as a substitute teacher and then changed careers to customer service. It has helped my health immensely to be away from lots of sick kids. In that time, I also got married (4 years this month) and my husband and I moved from a small apartment to our first home. We've been here for 3 years.
We are currently trying to conceive our first child with some difficulty. I have been off birth control for almost three years and nothing has happened for us yet. We have seen a fertility specialist, had all the tests and were able to do 2 rounds of IUI with no success. Our insurance will not pay for more IUI's and we aren't sure we are financially or mentally ready for the next step. So we decided to take a break for a while and plan our dream vacation! We are hoping it will take some stress off of trying to conceive and maybe later this year or next we can begin treatments again.
This blog will be mostly about those two important parts of my life and any other ramblings I may feel like sharing. I hope you enjoy reading!
Aside from those tidbits, I love to read, knit, crochet and I got a sewing machine for Christmas. I love to make people happy with my craft skills. I also love to cook and try new things. I have even gotten my husband to enjoy his vegetables!
