Wednesday, January 28, 2009's been a while

I feel like I have several posts with this title! I seem to go through ebs and flows of having things to write about.

Thing here have been busy. I officially started my new job role last Monday. This prompted a trip to Houston for training. I am really excited about the new position-- nervous, but excited! I feel like I am in a situation where I am terrified that I am getting in over my head. I was asked to take on this position-- I didn't really interview for it. So while I feel good that my company has confidence in me that I can handle the new job...I in a way feel like I have faked them I am a good actress or something. Such a scary place to be! I am terrified of failing or not being able to handle it. Oh...and did I mention that this was a created position...I am the only one in it. So I feel like I am a trial and error case too. Anyway... so things have been busy. I have not unloaded my old responsibilities my workload is pretty big right now! But I will make it through!

Gary is busy with work as well! Things in the recruiting world seem to be steady these days. I think this economy is really helping! In fact... Gary has been faced with issues they have never seen-- people are not getting out of the recruiting is running out of jobs for the kids to pick from. It's so strange! At this point... it is like someone needs to get out in order for another to go in. So that has been a challenge!

On the baby front...things have been quiet. We are just coming around again to start thinking about what we might want to do next. I feel like I really needed all those months off of thinking about it. It has been a much needed break. Unfortunately we were not so lucky to get a break positive, but that's okay. At this point, we really don't know what direction we want to go. We have completely put it in God's hands and are going to let him lead the way.

I am hoping I can get back into the blogging on a more regular basis. Although it probably wont be baby related...I do really enjoy writing!

Good Message

I have gotten 2 good messages this week that I wanted to share. No real update on us... just things to think about and remember.

'To get something you never had, you have to do something you never did.' When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better.
'The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you.' Something good will happen to you today; something that you have been waiting to hear.

This video-- what a message!

Happy 2009!

It's a new year! Time to start fresh! I woke up this morning to crisp air and LOTS of sunshine! What better way to start new year? I cant think of one! Gary and I had a quiet night at home last night. We rang in the new year with some wine (Captain and coke for Gary), a couple of movies, a to die for dinner, a little snooze from 11:15-11:45 (hehe...I am old!) and a champagne toast and kiss at midnight! It was really really nice! Now that I am older I realize how wonderful it is to wake up on New Years Day without a hangover. Seems for years that was the smashed can you get and how awful can you feel on day 1 of the next year. Those days are long gone and I love it!

As for the annual new years resolution... I have given this some thought. Seems every year...I make a resolution and within a few days I break it. Not a good way to start a new year. So this year... I have decided to make one resolution that will play out how ever it needs to for me--but doesn't have a HUGE guilt tag associated with it if I end up not being perfect. My resolution---- To stop allowing our fertility challenges and my traveling for work to be an excuse to not take care of myself. Seems for the past year I have been using our fertility challenges and my inconsistent schedule as an excuse to not exercise, be unhealthy and eat less than optimal. I am done with that. 2009 is my year to focus on myself and my health. I will have my ups and I will have my downs...but that is okay.

I am worried a little about 2009-- I will be honest. I have this immense fear that an entire year will go by again and we still will be without child. I pray (daily) that this isn't the case. I pray that God blesses Gary and I with a baby in 2009. I pray that our timeline and God's timeline falls in line. For all those that pray for us...thank you! I wish everyone a happy, healthy 2009! Let this be a WONDERFUL year!
