Update/Goals for the blog

So apparently its been quite a while since I blogged.  Woops!

I don't even know where to start if I am going to tell you how my life has been...It's been a whirlwind, that's for sure.  I was sick and in the ER twice back in May/June and I think that was the last time I wrote.  Fortunately, it was not a CF kind of sick, it was more of my endometriosis flaring up real bad. Unfortunately, I was in agonizing pain for quite some time, was unable to eat much and lost about 10 pounds.  I ended up in the hospital for 10 days total because they couldn't figure out what exactly was wrong. And then during the second week they found a "pocket" of infection near my bladder.  My theory is that I had a burst cyst that got infected along with the endo and some inflammation in my intestine. But anyway, that's all in the past now.  During that time, we put our TTC efforts on hold and so far we have not gone back.  As much as I have always wanted babies, after that scare it really got us thinking that we also want to travel more. We don't know if/when we will go back to the fertility specialist.

A week after I finally left the hospital, we had planned on going away for my husbands wheelchair soccer tournament in Indiana (a two+ hour flight from home) and we did go.  Again something I was very unsure of doing.  I had a lot of bottled up anxiety.  On the one hand, I didn't want to get all the way to Indiana and be in agonizing pain again...but on the other I didn't want to stay home alone for almost a week and risk being in pain.  So we decided at the last minute that I'd still go and it was great!  Even though I just sat around on bleachers watching soccer most of the the time, it was very nice to just get away from everything.  To go somewhere I'd never been, to see something my parents and sister have never seen...despite there not being much to do in "The Middle" of the country.  We were able to relax and let go of everything that had happened back home.  AND we realized how EASY it was to travel.  You see...we travelled with his whole team, 7 men and one woman in wheelchairs, plus the significant others/or helpers.  It was a HUGE process and trying to get all of them (and the wheelchairs) on the plane wasn't easy, but it went far smoother than we could have imagined.  All my husband kept saying was "imagine how easy it would be if it was just us."  

SO...when we got home we started talking about our trip and going somewhere, just the two of us. And, guess what guys....I finally convinced him to take me to DISNEY!!!  We leave in about 5 weeks and I am already like a kid in a candy store, bouncing off the walls excited!!  And I have been since we booked it.  I work for a travel agency and I have been telling my husband FOREVER that Disney is the perfect place for people in wheelchairs.  I mean, you book the trip and its all taken care of. They do everything.  They pick us up at the airport in Orlando and shuttle us to our resort.  They even pick up our luggage!  I mean, really?!  Can you get better than that?  I know when I land at an airport, the last thing I want to do is wait for my baggage to come off the conveyor belt.  Granted, with CF most of my luggage (medication, Vest, nebulizer) will be in my carryon and I'll still be responsible for that...at least I won't have to worry about our additional 1-2 bags with our clothes. Seriously excited for this.  THEN, once you're on Disney property you don't even need to rent a car. There are shuttles and the monorail all over to take you to all of the parks, other resorts and Disney Springs (the old Downtown Disney shopping/restaurant area).  And I know he won't be able to ride all the rides, but everything else is wheelchair accessible.  Serious bonus in my book!  *unlike at a beachy resort on an island outside of the US, that may have stairs and hills and whatnot*  Not to mention, we will be there during the Food and Wine Fest at Epcot!  So it will be a little more "adult" than just going for the princesses.  ;) I know he'll like Epcot.  I was there 21 years ago next month, he's never been.  We will take one day to do Universal too.  I am PUMPED to see Harry Potter land.  oh my gosh.  From what I hear, it looks JUST like the movies.  We'll probably have to take a cab there or find some sort of shuttle.  I am not worried about that.  I just can't wait to go.  And the weather should be perfect.  Everyone is telling me how great a time of year it will be.  

So as for this blog...I've been thinking of what I want it to be.  I want to be more involved in the blogging world, I want to spend more time writing on here.  I just don't know what I'd write about every time.  LOL.  So I am going to try a be a better participant.  I will try and blog more often, maybe come up with some weekly or monthly theme posts that will make sure I get on here.  If I set a definite post for a definite date, then I'd find time.  My computer time is usually while I am nebbing/vesting and lately I've been crocheting or watching make up videos while nebbing/vesting.  Oh yea, I also joined on as a Younique make up presenter, so if you have any make up questions or want to check out the line, leave me a comment.  I really love the products that I have tried so far and can't wait to try more.  Having this little side business has kept my mind off of some other things going on (the not TTC, the health issues) and has given me some thing to work towards and look forward to.  And as for the crochet stuff, I have lots of friends and relatives that are expecting soon so I've been kept pretty busy with that.  And with some random orders here and there.  I love being able to create a gorgeous keepsake for someone...especially babies.  Keep an eye out for some posts on my upcoming projects! I have some gorgeous WIP's (works in progress) that are on my (crochet) hooks right now.  Yes I typically have several projects going on at once and then several more in my brain waiting to be started.  LOL.

So for now, that's really all. If you have any ideas on things for me to write about, things you want to know more about, CF life, wheelchair spouse life...please let me know.  And I will see what I can come up with!  Have a lovely day!
