Quiet Reflection/Dream Vacation Dreamboard

And so it begins...

I've begun my third surrogate journey by giving 17 vials of blood on Wednesday for my preliminary testing :)  I'm very excited as this process is probably going to go very quickly.  My IP's have 6 totsicles waiting in the freezer for us and sometime around mid September I'll be transferring a 9 cell, 3 day embryo in to my comfy womb!

The next step at this point is to wait for my cycle to start and then call and get appointments for my HSG and endometrial biopsy and while we're waiting for that, work on contracts.

So, stay tuned for updates, I'm hoping to start posting more here again now that things are moving in my life again!  Things were pretty content and normal for a while there, nothing really to write home about and so I wasn't inspired.  Now I have things to share so hopefully it will pick up again around here!

Hope everyone is well :)

Busy Busy Busy Busy Busy.....and more Busy.

It has been a very busy couple of months!  I've barely had time to think.  I quit the job I got that I mentioned the interview for in the last post, it was a terrible place to work in my opinion but that's a whole other blog post.  I got another job in place of it though and I'm just finishing up training and doing my testing on Tuesday :)  It's a part time/full time job that I can bring my daughter with me and still have time to do all the stuff I have to at home, it's perfect!

On top of that, I've also matched with new IP's for another surrogacy!  YAY!  I thought I was done but the more I thought about it the more I felt like I could do it again...especially now that I know for sure I won't be having anymore for myself (Jer was snipped and it was successful).  They have some frozen embryo's and I have an appointment at the clinic on the 27th to get everything started.  Lawyer stuff will start next week and if all goes well with no snags I will most likely be transferring by mid-September!  Soooo excited!  I will be due toward the end of the school year so I won't have to take much time off and I will be able to go back to work in September again.

Also, my oldest kiddo James graduated from Grade 8.  Already!  I was so proud and he was so handsome and is very excited to be starting Grade 9 in September.

Marryn also turned two last month (holy hell did that ever fly by!)...she's great, talking up a storm and as adorable as ever.  She won our city's Rose Festival baby contest at the beginning of June and was Rose Bud Queen in the parade.  Talk about proud!!!

Jonah is also well, with no front teeth but one adult tooth finally starting to grow in :)  He turns 7 in just under 2 weeks.  He's very excited to be starting Grade 2 in the fall and is doing well with his reading since we switched him over to English school.

Jer and I are well also, just focusing all of our energy (and what extra money there might be) on finally getting out of debt and working towards starting to look at buying a house by next summer.  This Saturday will be a year since our stag and doe and our 1st anniversary is coming up shortly in October...this year totally flew by!  Things are going wonderful and everything is looking up.  I'm loving life and the things that are coming my way!

Now we're off to a BBQ with friends so I will say so long for now!!  Happy Summer!!!
