Yes it's time for ICLW.
And yes, Aunt Flo is visiting as well. I think the thing that bothers me most about her is how she gets me irritated and moody. I have come to terms with the realization that her arrival means no baby, but I wish I could just not get bugged with my closest friends and family when she comes by. I am working on that. I think I did a better job this month. I'll have to ask my hubby.
I haven't done a welcome ICLW letter for awhile, so I thought I would do one this time. You can see the info on the side bar of my blog. But here it is quick and dirty. I spent a lot of time, money, and energy doing infertility treatments and dealing with insurance companies. None of which turned out well. I spent some more time, money, and energy devoted towards adoption, and have reaped the benefits of it. I have a beautiful baby boy who is a joy to be with. He has such a pleasant, happy personality and is always smiling and laughing except for when he's not. :D Which isn't too often. :D
As you can see from my header, my blog is about finding joy now, today, not later, and not tomorrow. In the throes of life and the ups and downs it brings, I have found that if I can keep my perspective and focus on being happy, then I can get through anything--even infertility treatments and the stress of adoption.
I still write about infertility and adoption. But now I also write about being a mom. I also write about ordinary things like exercise, crafts, and whatever else I feel like at the moment. I enjoy photography, reading, being outside, and learning most anything. I am working on my cooking skills and am hoping to find pockets of time in between naps to learn how to garden, work on some crafts, and edit and digitally scrapbook my photos. I hope you will stick around and join me in finding joy in life.
