Yeah, yeah, yeah....I feel your evil stares. I hear the whispers. And I've also gotten an email or ten about how bad it is that it's been MONTHS since my last post.
My only excuse is that we've either been out of town or we've had back-to-back visitors for the last two months. We are SO blessed with so many great friends and family who want to come out and
use us for the beach visit us, so I can't complain. We're only in VA for a year, so we're trying to soak it up as much as possible with those we love!!
Oh wait! I do have another excuse! Our laptop screen went out so I only have the desktop to work with. And it's holed up in the office upstairs, where I rarely go.
So, should I just pretend it's only been a few days since my last post or should I start from the beginning?
Well, I do have a list sitting here, waiting to be blogged, but I'll start with just a few things from the past few days. The most important stuff.
First of all, my best friend Kelly just had her second baby. Bristol was born on August 6th at 9:45am. She came roaring into this world after only TWO pushes, weighing ten pounds!!! What is it with all these big babies!? I AM LOVING IT!!! Welcome to the world, Bristol, and congratulations Douglas family!
Secondly, I have a new Mastercard ad to pitch, what'ya think?
First and second negative pregnancy tests........ $7.99
Third and fourth negative pregnancy tests..........$7.99
Finally reading the box and realizing said negative pregnancy tests are, in fact, NOT negative....... PRICELESS.
Yep, you read that right! Everyone say it with me now...... PRAISE.....THE ...... LOOOOOORD!!!
We have been dealing with the military healthcare red-tape the last few months and have been on no drugs or fertility treatments at all. I was still tracking my body's every move and totally had this planned. But, just like the last 29 months, I figured it probably wouldn't work. Just two weeks before we were go the next step up in our infertility treatment journey, we found out we wouldn't need it!
We don't know if God was testing our faith, or what His timing means, but we are beyond thrilled! I'm only five weeks along, and yes, I know that is soon. Our thoughts are, we would like as many people as possible praying for a healthy baby so it doesn't bother us to get the word out there early!!
We know we are so undeserving of this gift, but SO grateful and feel so blessed!!
I'll make sure to update more now, don't worry. Things are slowing down here (visitor-wise) in the Huse household, so I should have one or more of Lorelai's naptimes to put out some new blog posts.
Thank you again to everyone for all your prayers!
