Winding Road

Last night I drove about four hours from Dallas to Arkansas to drop the pups off at my parents house for Christmas week and spend the night.  This morning, I drove the remaining four hours to Missouri to be with BFF and her adorable eight-day old daughter, AJ.  This trip, though on the agenda for most of the year, was on again, off again recently due to the somewhat strained nature of our relationship. 

I'm so glad that we worked through all of that in time for me to be here this week.  Actually, I'm not sure how much of it we actually worked through versus how much of it our recent BFP supposedly all made miraculously disappear.  Still, it is amazing how everything feels almost "back to normal" for the first time in nine months!  It's true that there are many things that BFF said along way that I understand a bit more now (not in relation to our IF, but with regard to pregnancy things she worried about).  There are other things that I understand even less now, though.  Regardless, I'm grateful that my dear, sweet friend has returned and that most of the walls that had been formed between us seem to have fallen.

BFF has alwasy been more like family than friend.  Even the strongest families go through their tough times.  I'm just grateful that I'm able to be here to help them when they needed it since their families on both sides haven't been able to be there to support them as much as they'd hoped.  Little AJ is like family now, too...she's quite a show stopper!!  Steals your heart with just a glance! 

I'll be here until Christmas Eve.  Then, it's back home to Arkansas to meet Hubby (who flies tomorrow) and start the family Christmas festivities!

That is a lot of traveling. When do you get some "down time"??? I hope it's soon! Good luck with the holidays, it sounds like you got a lot on your plate.

I hope you are able to get some rest while traveling. Congrats on your natural pregnancy. You got a true Christmas miracle. It sounds like we have a lot in common (I'm 5 weeks PG) and I have a lot of fears regarding this pregnancy but I have decided to embrace and enjoy it and not let the fear take hold.

Have a wonderful Christmas with your BFF and her precious baby. That will be you soon.

Are you from Arkansas? If so, I'm going to freak out because I'm from Arkansas. This will be a really small-world thing if so : )
