Making Life Work On One Income

A little over 7 months ago my family took a huge leap of faith.  My husband had a good job opportunity in another state.  He had been unhappy at his former employer for years and finally had a chance to use his very specialized skills at another company. What this meant for our family was… Continue reading Making Life Work On One Income


Sunday Night Musings (a ttc update)

Today is day #5 of my third Clomid cycle ttc baby #2.  My 7th cycle ttc baby #2 overall.  So obviously last month was a total fail.  On the upside, my cycle seems like it was a pretty normal cycle vs my usual non-ovulatory light cycles.  So perhaps my body has been priming itself to… Continue reading Sunday Night Musings (a ttc update)

5 Months of Hope, 5 Months of Sadness

It's so crazy how infertility fucks with your head. Every month my husband and I keep having this conversation about how much we love our son, how fulfilled we are, how we really don't need to have another child, how we wonder how we'd even function as a family of 4 with a crazy toddler.  Also… Continue reading 5 Months of Hope, 5 Months of Sadness
