Hello Again...

OK, so it's been a while since I've posted...I needed some time to try to heal. May 14th I miscarried again. That pregnancy was the longest we have managed to carry since we started trying. I made it 7 weeks and 2 days. We actually caught the baby as I passed it. We named it Liberty Hope after much discussion. The entire 2011-2012 election cycle was spent working to preserve liberty and hoping that we would make a difference and wake people up to the fact that our liberty is being eroded on a daily basis, not just by the current administration, but by Republicans as well. We fought hard...within the rules, only to have them changed and all our efforts thrown back at us. Liberty is dying here and so is hope. So, we chose Liberty Hope for our baby. We haven't really tried again, but we never prevent, so in a sense, we are always trying.

With this being a new year, I decided to take a new approach. I found a LOVELY group of Firefighter Wives (since my hubs is a firefighter), and have decided to take on the Fit Fire Wives Challenge. I am working out everyday, using MyFitnessPal to track what I eat, all in hopes of becoming a healthier me. We'll see how it goes. I have to say, though, that the Fire Wives have helped me not to focus so much on loss, but to look to the future, and to be in the present. I love them immensely! I'm so glad I found them! If you are married to a firefighter, dating a firefighter, or engaged to a firefighter, you should join us on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/firefighterwife/

As for TTC, I think we will start REALLY trying after Feb 10, 2013. That is our 6 year anniversary, and that will give me more time to lose some weight, be in better shape, and MAYBE make a difference in how things go. I hope all of you have a wonderful new year, get the babies you so desperately want, and find true happiness!

Live, laugh, and love,
