It's been a while

I haven't posted in over a month so I figured I should probably fill in my life over the past little while. I had my birthday and we went to Disneyland. We got 2nd place in the Challenge and had a ton of fun with our friends Jared and Joanna. I'm sad that we let our annual passes expire but we don't have any vacation time lately. Which brings me to my new job. I got a job at University of Phoenix in the University Services. It's a lot of fun. I don't have to use my brain very often. :) When people need transcripts, I order them for them. The people I work with are really fun and it pays the bills. Plus it's a lot closer to Robby's job than before so we are saving on gas. Which was $2.39 yesterday and it made me so happy! Ok so that was off my train of thought. :) Robby also got a new job where he is "Senior Technologist." He decides everything technological at the company he works at. It's called Santy and is an advertising company. He's only been there a week but already I can tell he's going to love it. At least for a year or so! :) Most people would go crazy if their husband changed jobs this much but he's doubled his salary in the past 2 years and is doing something he loves which makes me happy. :) He's also doing a lot of side projects that have been bringing in some extra funds. :) We're hoping that the extra money will be able to pay for Doctor visits in the coming months to help me get pregnant. It's been 3 years since going off birth control and 2 and a half years of waiting and hoping. I'm praying that it doesn't take much more time but I'm honestly enjoying the time I have with my husband, alone. I never thought I would get to that point but it's nice to be able to pay off all our debts, to be able to go on vacation whenever, to sleep from 7 o'clock at night to 4:30 in the afternoon the next day (I was sick), to be able to just cuddle on the couch and watch a movie together. I'm not saying I wouldn't trade all of it in a heartbeat for a baby, but I'm living with the hand I've been dealt. This Friday marks the 4 year anniversary of the day I met Robby and I can honestly say, we are a billion times closer than I ever could have imagined. He is my best friend, my lover, my soul mate. I'm so glad I get to spend eternity with him. :) And that's our life in a nut shell. Hopefully I will do better at keeping up with this but after 3 negative tests, the flu, and settling into a new job, I haven't felt much like blogging. I'm so grateful to all the friends and family I have that keep me going, keep me faithful, and keep me happy. I love you all!

Hey dude, we totally need to get together again soon. I've been so busy with school and stuff that I've let way too much time pass by without you.

Hey Angee. You don't really know me but my husband, Kaleo is Robby's cousin. Just wanted to say hang in there with the whole baby thing. We've been there. Married 9 years and still no kids, 1.5 rounds of IVF and now waiting to adopt. I know it's hard and I hope things get better for you guys soon.

If it helps, there are a ton of amazing people going through very similar things. I find strength in their words and experiences, here are a couple favorites...the r house blog has so many great resources & links, you could get lost in it for days. Good luck to you guys!!

Oh Ang! It will come when it will- and really, you sound like a born mom who won't skip a beat when it does! I'm sure that you and rob have special spirits WAITING to come to you too! In the meanwhile, play with your cute nephews, and don't think about time. Time will always get you- and it's totally an earthly thing!
