More things to look forward to

Moving on to adoption instead of continuing IVF has allowed Ryan and I to start making decisions based on what we want to do instead of what we need to do in order to accommodate treatment. We are taking a week vacation in June, which I am absolutely thrilled about. Our little weekend trip after the miscarriage was very nice, but we have really been wanting to totally get away for a longer period of time. It'll be so wonderful to kick back and enjoy each other now that we're officially switching gears after the last two years of trying to get pregnant. 

Two weeks after we get back, I will be done working outside of home. yay!!! :) I'm going to come alongside Ryan and help him accomplish some of his goals, as well as finally being able to focus on the many things that I simply don't have time for with our current lifestyle. Ryan and I put a whole list together of things that I want to accomplish with the extra 40-50 hours a week I'll have. I am so excited to for the opportunity to be productive with the things that actually matter to me, like working on the house, financial efficiency, spiritual growth, church service, etc. And of course, it will be easier to tackle the mound of paperwork that will come with adoption. We think that this will be an excellent transition period for us to get used to the single income and get into a solid groove of time/financial efficiency before we bring our future baby home. My last day at work is July 6th. I may or may not be counting down weeks instead of days because it sounds like less time. *teehee*

  1. I remember when my husband I and decided it was time for me to quit my fulltime job... it was amazing!! My stress and anxiety level decreased over night. It's amazing how much you can get accomplished with those extra 40 hours a week!

  7. Wow, have a great vacation! One of the horrible things about going through what you guys have done is the feeling of having lost control of your own lives, which can be really painful. But it sounds like you're starting to regain some feelings of control now, which is amazing.
