Taking a Break

Well blogosphere friends, you may (or may not) have noticed that I haven't been posting much. I have decided to take a bit of a break from the blog. Life has not panned out like I had hoped and although when I started blogging, our plan was to TTC in January, with DH's layoff, and me being unable to find a different job, our plans and lives were put on hold, and it has been hard for me to continue coming up with content besides the enormous amount of frustration I feel over having to wait on something I want SO badly because life hasn't dealt us ideal circumstances. While I think it is valuable to read about the high points and low points of people's journeys, I felt that all I was delivering was low points, so I took a step back. I am hoping that very soon, I will be back with great news of TTC.

I will post some good news anyways, and ask that those that are the praying kind lift them up, and those that aren't send good vibes, thoughts, wishes, etc, our way. DH landed an interview with an organization that he has been dreaming of working with for several years. The interview is next week, and while this is the first step in a very long and intense interview process, we are hoping for the best. Additionally, I had a phone interview today! It seems small, but this is the first "official" interview I have had in almost 5 months. This is also the first step in the interview process for me, but I am hoping for an in-person interview next week. It would be a position that would be challenging but very rewarding, and a HUGE step in the right direction for my career. Plus, it would be a pay bump of almost 40% of my current salary which would be amazing.

DH and I have a vacation in the works which was our other pre-TTC goal. I have a feeling that my hopes and dreams for a family are right around the corner, but I know that I really resting on a wish and a prayer right now. I will post again when I have more news, but wanted to say thank you for all of the kind thoughts and support.
