The road less traveled…

My partner and I were attempting to become pregnant. For many reasons – including my sanity – we have put that on the back burner for now and are just working on walking down the road less traveled. We've been through Katrina – moved to Colorado – and our next adventure is headed to California.

I am thankful.

I know sometimes it doesn’t SEEM like it with all the negativity that has come across my keyboard – something that I never expected this little blog to become BTW.

I’m thankful for my wife and for the relationship that we have.  We’ve been through so much, she and I, and it’s a wonder that we’ve made it through.  From major medical scares to cross country  moves and infertility issues – they all seem to make us stronger.  I wish that sometimes our life was different and we didn’t have to deal with these trials, but if I have to go through them I’m so very thankful that she’s the one right next to me the entire way.  I’m not sure where I’d be without her.

I’m thankful for my family.  Even though we drive each other nuts and I don’t agree with everything they do, no matter what if I need them they are there for me.  I’ll always have a roof over my head and food to eat – even if I cannot provide that for myself.  I’m thankful for the way that they have opened up their homes, hearts, and minds to accept Shayne as just another member of the family.  And how they go out of their way to make sure she feels included and loved.

I’m thankful that I have a great job.  A job that allows me to not only make the money I need to pay our way, but a job that I truly love and allows me to work from home.

I’m thankful for my puppies – but mostly my Toby.  He’s so in tune with my feelings and knows just the right time to come have a cuddle day with me.    He’s the best hugger/kisser ever and has wiped my tears away more times than I can count in his little lifetime.

I’m thankful for this blog – and I’m thankful for the other blogs that I follow.  I’m thankful to know that there is such a huge support system out there in the virtual world for people who need to talk to someone who just understand – even if it’s not a complete dialog.  Knowing that I’m not alone (even when I feel alone) is a great thing.

I’m thankful that I have the opportunity and the ability to look at other avenues for children.  I know that miracles don’t happen for everyone, but I also know that it’s not the end of the journey.  It’s simply time to get on another mode of transportation.

I am thankful, truly.  And Highly Blessed



Time to answer another question: December 20, 2010

Another one from Isa over at small obsessions.

3. What was the best vacation you have ever been on?

This one is not easy to answer.  Lori and I have been able to take quite a few trips in our relationship, so I think I’m going to put down a few vacations.

Biloxi, MS

For our 1 year anniversary, we drove from New Orleans where we were living to Biloxi Mississippi.  We spent the weekend there just hanging out on the beach and enjoying each others company.  This trip was not extravagant at all – we stayed in a Super 8 Motel and had to borrow my Mom’s car because we had no reliable transportation – but it was very special.  Keep reading and you will see why…

We drove all the way there after work on a Thursday afternoon.  The drive was actually great – we talked and laughed the whole time.  We only stopped once at Waffle House to eat dinner (I LOVE WAFFLE HOUSE).  I have the weirdest sneeze EVER and I sneezed in the restaurant – one of the patrons laughed so hard at me he almost put his milk through his nose.  Lori never let me live it down.

Finally we got to the hotel and I was just ready to hit the sack.  Lori kept insisting that we go to the beach.  I was so exhausted, but finally relented.  WE went down to the beach in front of the pirate ship casino and walked out onto the sand.

The moon was full, the water was perfect, the weather was great…  We were walking along the water and Lori handed me a little bag.  Inside was the cutest little figurine – it had a heart and 2 little people on it; one giving a rose to the other.  I then opened the card and inside she had written her vows.  As I’m beginning to cry, she gets down on one knee and opens a box with the most beautiful diamond solitaire and asks me if I’ll spend the rest of my life with her.  Of course, after catching my breath, I said YES!

1 week after this trip is when Katrina hit New Orleans and changed our lives forever – completely demolished the site where we got engaged – but the trip was absolutely beautiful.

SanFrancisco, CA

I’m fairly certain that my next favorite trip that we took was the weekend in San Francisco.  It was really a last minute thing – we decided on Monday that we were going to leave on Thursday to make the weekend in California.  We didn’t have much time, but had an absolute blast!

I think this is good for now – I’ll do a couple more tomorrow!
