Strep throat no more...

Yep..I am back amongst the living. Thank you all so much for your kind words and encouragement. I am feeling MUCH better now and actually feel like I might live to see another day.

So...I have been on my new meds and my new diet for almost 3 weeks now. Guess what?....I have lost 8 lbs and one inch off my waste. I can't remember the last time I put on a pair of pants that USED to be tight on me and...they actually FIT!!! Now that I don't have strep throat anymore, I will be returning to the gym with Pace so hopefully the results will come even quicker from here on out.

I just really hope this works, that my cycles return to normal and we can actually have some hope at conceiving in 2008. I just can't imagine not being able to carry my own child in my womb.

Pace and I are actively looking for a house to buy now. We saw 5 houses on Saturday - only 2 remain on the "maybe" list. Neither one of them have just jumped out and grabbed me. Thankfully we have some time. We will begin the communication with our mortgage broker later on this week and then the real stress kicks in...Money talk!

Pace and I have been going to some marriage classes at our Church for the last month and yesterday the lesson was on confession and forgiveness. I think it is really what I needed to hear. Through this whole infertility mess, I have been hurt so many times by friends, family members etc. Sometimes I spoke up, sometimes I just let it slide, never the less, I was still hurt and I still carry that hurt with me. I am really feeling the need to forgive my friend (whom I haven't spoken to in almost a year) that totally crushed me, was totally unsupportive, insensitive and blatantly mean to me. I don't know if we could ever be friends again, but I know that I need to forgive her. I need to get rid of that emotional junk so that I can be healthy.

Anyway...that is my update for now. I hope you all are doing well!
