Happies and Crappies

Let's talk Happies and Crappies. Lucky for you, I only have one of each to report today. One happy, and one crappy. You gotta have a little balance in life, don't you think? I decided we'll start with a crappy so that we can slowly but surely end our Friday with a smile - a happy!

Crappies:
I spent a solid 30 minutes getting every.single.last tear out my body last night. I held nothing back. It was so emo of me. Judge me all you want, but I felt a million times better after that cry sesh. After some self-motivation, and thinking of God's greater plan, I wiped my tears away and decided to take a deep breath. No more tears were available. Why was I crying in the first place? Oh, I don't know. Probably because of this roller coaster ride that we've been on for the last year trying to conceive. Pretty sure I was triggered by the realization that November 2012 is when I got off my birth control. And well, it's November 2013. SO YEA.
What women don't usually talk about is the reality of the struggle. There's those women out there that say, "it was a tough time for me" or "I got through it with God" but what they fail to mention is how many cry sessions that they have.

I'm here to report that women struggling to get pregnant cry a lot. Sorry 'bout cha. But lez be honest... it's totally okay to cry and cry...... and cry.... and then cry some more. We're human, after all. Pity party of one is now officially closed. Let's move on.

Happies:
My favorite person in the ENTIRE WORLD is celebrating his birthday today, which also means that I'm celebrating. Yay for us. But really, isn't my birthday hubby the cutest little thing you've EVER laid your eyes on??? I know, right?!

And for good measure, here's a really embarrassing picture of us. Just for the heck of it. Happiest birthday ever to my groom. YOU'RE THE GREATEST.

  1. Proud of you for the cry sesh. We often forget or get criticized for crying, but its natural, good and so cathartic. God has a plan and when you see it, you will look back and feel silly for all the worry and woe, but the journey sucks. Praying for you and happy bday to the hubs.

  2. It is okay to cry about it. Girl I can't tell you how many times I have to just sit and cry about our infertility. It is a hard thing to go through and your emotions are totally crazy at this point. It is has been about a year and a half since we started trying.
