Here

Wow. I've let a lot of time pass since my last post. Sorry 'bout that. And especially sorry that I've worried some of you.

I've been...not sure how to articulate it, even to myself...Hibernating? Avoiding? Living? Some combination of these. A little out of words for the last little bit.

But I'm ok. I'm here. Still going.

Truth be told, this whole babymaking venture feels hopelessly stalled, although in reality it's only temporarily sidelined by the ongoing family situation. And it's been hard to come here into blogland and see others moving forward and feel us stagnant and not able to take any steps right now that might lead us out of this babylessness we find ourselves in.

So I've been letting myself be distracted by work, which has included travel and training, and my coursework (what was I thinking agreeing to another master's degree on top of the PhD?!) and, can't ever forget it, the family drama.

Just biding my time, hoping we can move into the next phase of things soon. Thanks for hanging in there. I'm not gone...just quiet.

  1. I was just thinking about you this morning on the bus. ♥

    School has been a bit of a blessing for me; it keeps me busy, makes me feel intelligent and not like a clump of infertile mass, and leaves me feeling accomplished/productive. Yes, it's stressful, but so is everything else right now. At least you'll have something to show for the school stress. ;)

  8. I'm glad for the update. I will say, I understand about the additional degree. You've been in school so long, what another few letters after your name. I miss school, in some ways.

    I hope the family stuff resolves, or at least eases on your mind. Take care.

  21. It's good to hear you're hanging in there and sufficiently distracted by life. May the family issues resolve quickly. Thinking of you and Will, even when you don't get around to posting and I don't get around to commenting.

  22. Happy happy to see you here!
    Sorry about the family upheaval, I wish you peace on all fronts, even though I know that is not always possible. and I'd forgotten about the master's as part of the grant and research project! That is enough to keep most mortals busy I must say.

    Can't wait to see you soon,
