Christmas Again?

Thanks for the many encouraging words and unfailing support yesterday. I do feel a difference. Just putting my feelings out there gives them less satisfaction. If I am not afraid to acknowledge them, they do not feel so victorious over me.



I receieved some of the coolest gifts this year. Anyone familiar with This website? I have never seen it before, but i now am intrigued and think it's just the bee's knees. We received gift certificates through this website. it makes giving restaurant gift cards so much easier now.



Also, visiting my sister, We were walking downtown where she lives and I saw two of the greatest signs ever and of course, I posted them for you to see also:

and

We are going out of town tonight to do Ch.ris.tm.as w/ E's family this weekend. Rest assured there will be good stories and pictures when we get back.

I am so glad that you had a good holiday with your family. I am experiencing the same fears you are. I hope that we both have our fears calmed soon so we can enjoy!

OMG, those photos are hilarious!! especially the first one. I was in a busy restaurant yesterday where people had to step around a little boy laying on his stomach on the (filthy) floor, while the mother chatted obliviously with her friend. Perhaps they could use a sign like that...!

Thanks for the laugh -- enjoy your weekend!

I am sorry I missed you yesterday when you were needing emotional support. I am glad that you are feeling a little more reassured. Have a great time this weekend with E's family.

Those signs rock!!! (Especially the second one since I'm still chugging my 1-2 cups a day!)

Good luck with the inlaws (outlaws...whatever)! I hope you don't have to do too much cooking. ;-)

I LOVE the children/espresso/puppy sign! That's great!

I wanted to say that I am praying for you and your friend. I can't imagine how scared she is right now and watching someone so close to you go through that is like going through it yourself in a way.

May you survive the visit to E's family unscathed. I love the signs. I hope your fear subside soon and just so you know I am still here supporting you.

just read your post on being fearful and i can totally relate. it is hard to blog about b/c i feel so blessed that i am pregnant. BUT every second i feel stressed and worried. i hoped it would end at 12 weeks (i am only 7) but i guess it continues...

WOW! I cannot believe how far along you are! congrats!! it seems like just yesterday you announced your BFP. I too am living every waking moment in fear. it's incredibly upsetting. IF is very hard to shake -- even when you're on "the other side." can I just fall asleep and wake up in 7+ months?

I'm happy to hear you had a joyous new years. I think you need more dancing in the days ahead :)

An espresso AND a puppy.... that's classic. Having just spent 2 weeks with 2 unruly children I completely "get" this. Thanks for sharing!
