1) I managed to get through two days of vomit. Christopher caught some kind of stomach bug and was throwing up Tuesday and part of Wednesday. We spent most of yesterday lounging on the couches and watching movies. Sometimes you just have to have days like that.
2) Did you hear about my weight loss? I'm down 20 pounds now! WooHoo!
3) I managed not to allow myself to get caught up in a debate/argument multiple times recently. If you read my blog at all you know that we have been struggling to get pregnant again. We don't use NFP to either avoid or conceive, and we always thought pregnancies would happen so fast as they did with our first two. We are now 12 months in after Christopher has been completely weaned and we still aren't pregnant. I'm adding a little PSA here, because it seems that some people need to hear this. It doesn't matter if a couple is trying for baby #1 or baby #3 or even baby #8, if they are hoping for a baby and that isn't happening, they have the right to feel sad about it. It is not helpful to say things like "just be thankful you have the boys you do" or "at least you're married!". Wanting to be blessed with more children doesn't mean that I am not thankful for the children, and the life we have, saying these things is not helpful and is actually quite hurtful. Just remember that we are all struggling with different things, and we should try to be charitable in all of our dealings. OK, that's all I'm going to say on that, or as Dominic would say "OK, all done, no more."
