I’ve been totally avoiding my blog of late. I’ve just not been inspired to write anything really.
Since my last pitiful post, life has gone on and we’ve got ourselves through the Festive season. People warned me about doing a treatment cycle just before Christmas – pretty much everyone I know told me to avoid a Christmas cycle cos if it did not work it would be extra hard to get through. I thought it would be just like any other failed cycle – I mean they all suck right? They’re all hard to “get over”. But oh my hat, Christmas was VERY hard this year. It should have been a time of celebration and joy at the news that we were finally “up the spout” with sprog and instead I found it was a time of forced smiles and curried joy so as not to put a damper on everyone elses Festive spirit. Christmas Eve was spent with the Young’s and Christmas day was spent with the Curley clan – cousins aunts and uncles and all.
I worked right through the season (admittedly not very hard but worked none the less) and managed to lose 7 kg’s and keep this weight loss consistent. Saying no to those added treats over this season is not as hard as one thinks. (I think being sadder than normal helps)
Cliff and I spent a very quiet New Years Eve at home with our hounds. We drank lots of champers (no where to drive and certainly no reason not to) and had a braai on our patio.
Just before the clock turned we put the tunes on full blast had a little dance in the lounge,
blew our vuvuzela in preparation for the FIFA 2010 World Cup being hosted in our country this year
and has a quick snog at midnight. Cliff went to bed and I stayed up drinking champers and watching movies. And so started our year.
2010. Sjoe, who would have thought it would get here as quickly as it did?
As we face our 5th ART treatment pretty much around the corner, I’ll not start this year like I always do and state this this year WILL be our year. What I will say is that I pray that each and every person who reads here gets blessed in ways they never thought possible and that all their hopes and dreams be fulfilled. I pray that each and every person who reads here has peace and joy in their hearts and that life for each and every one of you is healthy, wealthy and just damn fine.
Here’s to a great 2010 – in whatever shape or form that happens to manifest itself.
