DH and I have talked, talked and talked this weekend about our situation...I am quite happy he was in a talkative mood (do you find your DH's have some good talkative days and some not so good, too ;-) I REALLY needed that. We have decided to be rational about our situation and move forward with selling the house. We rejected the offer from this week because it was almost 13% less than our asking price...we did not counter because we felt we were too far away on $$. So....we will hang tight, and see what happens. We are cautiously optimistic. We had another call and scheduled another showing for tomorrow evening. (Fingers crossed, please!)

Lurked around some more today on new blogs (to me) and my desire to go straight to CCRM is only cemented. In my head, it's like monopoly, I keep thinking, "Do not pass go. Go straight to CO!" It will be an exciting day when we are able to make that trip...

Today, I was thinking about my niece. She is the youngest grandchild on my side of our family and she turned 7yrs last week. I wonder if my parents gave any thought this week as to when they may have a new grandchild? I know, I did. I had tons of cousins growing up and I have so many good memories. I always expected that for my children, too. Not so sure if that will be the case. Most of our siblings have kids now except my newly married sis and DH's bro who is now in a newly-serious relationship with someone who has a daughter from a previous relationship. DH mentioned the other day he wonders about his bro's fertility.....only time will tell, I guess.


  1. Hello! Thanks for joining my blog followers! I hope everything falls into place with the selling of your house!! I'll be following your journey, too and hoping you add a new cousin to your family's brood soon! xo

  2. Good luck with selling your house. It's a very brave decision to make and I admire that you are both willing to take that step. We can live with a lot less than we are used to without sacrificing our standard of living and I think you'll be surprised how well you will do. As for CCRM, I would highly recommend them. After 6 failed IVFS & 4 failed IVFs locally in Canada, we took the plunge and went to Denver and don't regret it for a second. The care we received was second to none. You may also want to consider doing some CGH testing because after a while, the question became for us "Do we even make any genetically normal embryos at all?" and if things didn't work out, I wanted to know that information. Good luck with everything.

  3. So glad you were able to come to a decision that you are both happy with.

    My youngest nephew is almost 8 now and I often have the same thoughts. I was so close in age to so many of my cousins growing up and the memories we have are priceless. It's hard to not want the same for our kids...
