One Tidbit; Two Coming Soons

Tidbit:
I picked up Mel's book "Navigating the Land of IF" today.  It's my first IF-related book and I think it was the perfect first pick!  I'm only two chapters in, but I'm already so pleased that I decided to read it.  And, only two chapters in, I already feel obliged to say if you haven't read it yet, go get it!  It was this line in the intro (page 8) that convinced me that this was the perfect book for my current state of mind: "....its (the book) focus is not on how to leave this island, but on how to live on it...at least for now." 

I definitely need to start getting comfy with the idea that this is where we are.  Hopefully not for long, but we're hear all the same.  With that in mind, I need to start amassing the tools, supplies and rations we'll need while we're here.  I can't change the fact that we're here.  I can change what I do about it why we are.  At the very least, I can try.

Coming Soon #1:
In a few hours, I'm going to post a super fun (hopefully you'll think so, too) craft circle contest.  The first five people to reply to that post will receive handmade items in the mail made with love and care just for you from me!  Admittedly, there is a tiny catch to keep the game interesting.  Stay tuned for more...

Coming Soon #2:
In preparation for tomorrow's uro appointment, I'm hoping to finish a post compiling all of my research on sperm count, motility, morphology and anti-depressant/sperm quality/production.  If I don't finish that up before tomorrow, please know that it's in the works.

Have a wonderful Monday!

Your attitude it good! Good point: we can't change the fact that we're here, but we can choose how to deal with it. It sounds like you are deaing very well!

I just got Mel's book from Amazon, too. I'm about 2 chapters in. I'm so impressed with how compassionate and matter-of-fact it reads.

Thank you for visiting my blog and for your kind words! I am glad that my recent post was helpful to you. (((HUGS)))

I noticed in your "about me" description of you and your spouse, that I could have written a very similar description about my husband and me. I think personalities like ours, compliment/balance personalities like theirs well. I agree that over the years my husband and I have learned a lot from each other and will continue to. In the movie Good Will Hunting, Robin William's character defines your "soul mate" as "someone that challenges you" and I have always loved that/thought it applies well to my soul mate and me! :)

I too recently got Mel's book, even though much of our SIF journey is behind us. Glad you are enjoying it! I wish it existed a few years ago when we were in the thick of our SIF an recurrent pregnancy loss struggles, however I still look forward to reading it. As Mel is such a fabulous writer, I think I would read pretty anything she wrote.

I wish you the best on your journey. Hang in there. (((HUGS)))
