It's gonna be Ok

It just will be. Your heart will break. Your plans wont work out like you hoped. You will find your way.




To myself four years ago.

To you now...if you are seeking solace in infertility.

Project Recognition: An Uplifting Update

Anyone remember this?

The Project I anonymously started to secretly recognize fellow staff members and empower them to secretly recognize each other? It came complete with a medal and laminated letter?


Since I had never received the award and the few people I asked (who are some of the most loved on campus) had never received it, I figured it died out. Turns out....it lives.

I was at a conference with some co-workers and we were talking about moral on campus. Assuming Project Recognition had died out I told them the story. Turns out that almost every person (4 out or 6) had indeed received the award. While I wish I had remained anonymous, I am happy to know that it did what it was intended to do.

I think about it but it's fine

I do think about Bambina's origins all the time but not in a negative or intrusive way. It just is. It's just one more unique thing about her. It makes no difference in how I feel about her or how I built my family.

I'm an Ass

Boo Hoo Hoo...I have two beautiful babies. Boo Hoo Hoo...I have wonderful in-laws who are willing to help us out. Boo Hoo Hoo...I'm thin. Boo Hoo Hoo I have accumulated so many material items that they are difficult to pack. Boo Hoo Hoo...I have a career that I enjoy and am paid pretty well for. Pity me!

Shut it, Peeveme.

I am stressed but need to change my mindset.

All (most) of my "problems" come from abundance. Life is full. Take it as is come.

Moving Back story

So the back story is: Mr. Peeveme got a job about 1 hour south of where we live, where I work, and where the kids go to day care/preschool. So one of us has to commute. The clincher is that his parents live down there so we'd have some help with the kids.

On top of that....they would take care of the Baby so that would save us $1,800 a month plus of we moved in with them for a few months that would save us a lot more and could get back on our feet a lot faster.

I will commute with our 3 year old until her school year ends.

It's stressful trying to move. I was already at my limit but now I get to add moving and commuting to the list. Yea me. Maybe my BMI will drop another point (did I tell you I'm unhealthfully skinny?...Not that I am THAT skinny but the fact that it is unintentional is worrisome. Also when I do go back to a healthy weight it will make me feel fat...which is dumb, I know, but I know myself and that is how I will feel.)

It's been so long since I blogged that I totally forgot my kids fake names.

Going Phazy

Phase 1: Move all the things we will not need in the next 6 months or so into storage.

Phase 2: Move in with Mr. Peeveme's parents with as few things as possible. Leave rest of our stuff in our house. I start commuting.

Phase 3: Pack up the rest of our house on weekends and place into storage.

Viola! Multi-generational living! and In-law child-care!

God bless my in-laws. If you think this is hard on me can you imagine how hard it's going to be on them?

On the bright side...I will probably start blogging more often becasue I really dislike Italian TV. It's either soccer, soap operas or crazy variety shows. The house is tiny so I will just hold up in my room with my laptop.
