Oh Summer...

I  finished summer school last week, so I am now officially on my two week summer break, YEAH! This summer has been great, even with school. I have gotten to spend a lot of time with friends (even ones who hit my car), and family (although brought together by a funeral). We also took my Mama to a Paul McCartney concert, and it was freaking AMAZING!! Seriously, you would think his voice would have given out 50 years later, but no, he sang for 3 hours! I can't even tell you how many different instruments he played. Definitely tied with The Cranberries for BEST CONCERT EVER!
We also adopted a puppy this month. Or, more correctly, I saw a puppy and fell in love and called and asked my sweet husband if I could bring him home. He let me, but made sure I understood that if it didn't work out, he was going back. But, he's working out wonderfully! He's a puppy, so he barks and chews when he shouldn't, but he will learn. Brian named him Frodo.
That's it for our summer so far, but stay tuned for more fun!

21 Months

     21 months of hopes and prayers. 21 months of counting days and taking temperatures. 21 months of doctors and medications. 21 months of "Are you guys ever going to have kids?" 21 months of prenatal vitamins. 21 months of my husband absentmindedly caressing my belly in a way that shows our longing for it to be full of something beautiful. 21 months of disappointment and frustration. 

      I know that I am blessed to have a husband that loves me, great family and friends, a good job, a home, and many other blessings that others do not have. But I still feel like part of me is missing. And some days the emptiness and longing are more painful than others.
