Freak me out

The verdict is in! I have strep! So maybe i have a good "I told you so" is in store from John. Becuase he did indeed tell me to go to the doctor on Tuesday!
Boy, oh boy....

I'm sitting in the waiting room of the doctor's office. I've been coughing since Monday, and I promised my poor husband that I would get some medicine. I feel bad for him. The night before last I said, "Wow! I don't think I coughed at all last night! I slept so well!" He looked at me and said, "You coughed...all...Night...long!" Sorry sweet husband. Thanks for not kicking me out of our bed!

We're back in action!

Well right after I had my first miscarriage. I deleted my blog because honestly everything was too much for me. Being around all my pregnant friends was too much. Being around all of the kids in my life was too much. Being alone was too much.

Then we got pregnant again. John and I had our very cool little secret. We kept that secret for only two weeks, and then God took our second child from us. So here I am two miscarriages later and stepping back into the world. We have been to the doctor for a million blood tests to figure out why we have lost two pregnancies. I honestly hope that they find something wrong because then they can "fix" me! But my dear friend Jac reminded me recently that only God can fix me and that she hopes that the doctors will be baffled that there is nothing wrong and then I will have a healthy perfect third pregnancy. Either way, I am anxious to hear from Dr. S.

So I am back! My new focus in life is to stop focusing on having babies and I am running a half-marathon in April. It is the perfect distraction for me right now!

So what have we been up to? We had a fantastic white Christmas! I was off work for two weeks, and then went back to work for three days, then we were out two days because of the cold. Then I worked Monday and was home sick yesterday. Also, lucky me I am off next Monday as well! So John has figured that I have only worked one month in the last two! Ha! I won't complain!

We fixed our sunroom up as a home gym. This has been very nice to be able to workout at home rather than drive to "town" to go the gym. (yes, Jac we drive to "town" even if technically I live "in town!") I will have to remember to take pictures to post tomorrow. We have a treadmill, a bench press bench with curl machine on the end, medicine balls, balance balls, yoga mats, and dumbbells. We look like the real deal. However, John is still trying to convince me that we need to buy a 72 in. tv for the living room so we can mount our 42 in. in the gym. Doubtful. I think he will just have to be happy with the tv we have in there now!

We are planning our Spring Break Ski trip this week. Just the two of us and the beautiful snow! This will most likely be our last vacation with just the two of us, so we are pretty pumped!

I guess that is about it! Hope you are having a good week!
