Back, But Not Really

Maryland was nice, but unseasonably cold. I didn't pack enough warm clothes, so I ended up borrowing from my mom and sister. I really should know better by now, I seem to do this every time. It did re-enforce that I'm much more comfortable living down South. It was great to see the mountains, everything was so green from the heavy rains. Quite a contrast to our drought and wild fires, but I'll take the warmth of FL any day. It's good to be home!

It was kind of fun celebrating our anniversary at my cousins wedding, everyone had a great time. (Thanks for the congrats btw!) We kept forgetting and then re-remembering through out the day since we were so focused on the wedding. I was reminded of the stress and chaos that goes into a wedding, I'm so happy to have that behind me. I had a beautiful wedding, but I wouldn't want to do it again!

I have to acknowledge how awesome my family is. Not one single person asked or mentioned having children in any way. They weren't tip-toeing around the subject either, it just wasn't an issue and never has been. My family has enough going on in their own lives to be overly concerned about ours. I don't mean that in a bad way, they really are great.

I feel like I'm still in vacation mode. I'm not ready to get back to reality, mostly IF reality. I came home to a few more info. packets from other clinics. I've looked them over briefly, but I'm not in any hurry to make decisions. Strange, because I was so impatient to make consultation appointments before I left. ...I'm pretty sure I'll snap out of it soon.

Welcome back home! You are so lucky to have a family that knows how to support your IF in just the right way. It seems to be a common theme for some IF'ers to not have that to rely on.

I'm so glad you're back!!! :D

Maybe getting outside of all of it helped ease some of the stress ya know? I hope you DON'T snap out of it. I mean.. I want you to be ready, but I also like that you're happier. :)
