Hey girls, just thought it was easier to collect the recent posts to the other thread, saves my addled brain when I try to reply!
Keziah - really great to hear from you hun. Your road trip sounds like exactly what you needed - its so therapeutic to spend time with a good friend and to be exploring new places as well.
Completely understand re the numbness and ambivalence about TTC/IVF etc. Especially after having a break and taking the focus away from TTC. I think just sitting with it, as hard as that can be, and letting it settle, is a good approach. You are a very wise woman and the right path will become clear, I know it...
Pommie - that's great that you escaped the flooding, but it still cant be easy seeing so many ppl you know affected. The whole thing is really scary, but as Keziah said its also heartwarming to see ppl pulling together. Hope you and bubs (oops, almost typed the code for (.)(.)!! Not quite wot i meant!!) are well!
Mrs HNF - wow, you have been super busy - it all sounds like a lot of fun though. How did the Aus day parade etc go? Were you guys involved in the Sydney to Hobart race? Hows the new job?
Sarah - hey sweet, the anniversary of Andie's birthday must have been such a hard time, but it sounds like you coped so well. Very beautiful ritual too I really hope this year brings your dreams of a family true.
Whats happening with work and the job situation?
AFM - all good. Work has been intense but easing up a little now for a couple of weeks. We have a new car (well new to us!) and my challenge is re-aquainting myself with Sydney driving - OMG!! We used to live in the inner city so no car needed and just used pub transport - but now we are further out...
Anyway, Im finding it quite a challenge after so long with minimal driving. Sydney drivers are so freaking aggressive! But have just bought a GPS so hoping that will help with the navigation side of things. Could get DH to be my navigator but that in the past has led to much tension and rows, so will try the technological route (and prob end up driving round in circles LOL!).
much love to you all
