Weekly Round-Up Wednesday

I've seen memes like this before and have always loved to read them.  I love reflections, the process of looking back, of examining one's own thoughts and actions.  I have decided to start my own weekly meme.  Feedback and/or advice welcome!  


Outside my window...  Currently it's dusk with just a slight sliver of pink in the sky.

I am thinking...  How frustrating TTC can be.  Five months and in the midst of another 2ww, I'm unsure of how others have gone through a year or more of this.  Each month is full of highs and lows, but the lows have been getting lower.  I'm almost considering taking a couple months off just to clear my head.  I don't know.  That may just make me more crazy.  I'm so confused.

I am thankful for...  The love present in my life.  My friends, my family, my fiancee.  Without them I would lose my sanity through this process, sometimes I feel like I'm barely holding on as it is.  I appreciate their support and their faith in the process.

From the kitchen...  Tonight we just had hot dogs and baked beans.  Very uninspired.  However, last night I made Momma B's favorite: chicken enchiladas with a roasted tomatillo chile salsa.  Then I made the best pecan pie in the history of pecan pies.  Yeah, it was that good.  So an uninspired night every now and then is okay.

I am wearing...  Jeans and a sweatshirt.  Comfy and warm.

I am creating...  Not enough.  We're living in temporary quarters, or at least that is how we've treated it.  So much still lies in boxes, unpacked and unmarked.  I don't even know where most of my yarn or knitting/sewing patterns are located.

I am going...  Back to work tomorrow night after nearly a week off.  It's been wonderful having some time to myself during the day while Momma B has been at work.  Yet it will also be nice to go back to work and have some distraction.
I am reading...  Landing by Emma Donoghue

I am hoping...  To find some TTC clarity without the time off.  I'm truly hoping this is the end of our TTC journey, but I have little faith in that.

I am hearing...  Nothing Left to Lose by Mat Kearney

Around the house...  Everything is actually picked up, dishes are clean, cats are snoozing, Momma B and I are on our respective laptops (mine is brand new!  yay!).  Other than the black hole that is our bedroom, the house is pretty peaceful right now.

One of my favorite things...  Right now: my new laptop that we picked out the other day.  It's so nice to have such portability again.  And strangely, Momma B and I connect though we're in our own worlds because we're always sharing what we're looking up.
A few plans for the rest of the week...  1) Laundry.  Joy.  2) Begin yoga.  JOY!  =)

Here is picture for thought I am sharing...

“Behind their lively, searching eyes one senses a doubting, a contemplative personality, always trying to make sense out of a puzzling world.”  ~Adriaan Kortlandt

  1. I like the round up wednesday, might have to do one too. and pretty eyes, btw!

  2. I can see that little bit of emptiness you're feeling in your smile! But your eyes, they show hope, determination and passion for something that you want! Don't "take that break" ... as Julie Andrews said it best "Perseverance is failing 19 times and succeeding the 20th." My other favorite inspirational quote by Samuel Smiles - "Hope is the companion of power, and mother of success; for who so hopes strongly has within her the gift of miracles." Your body is the carrier of these miracles, cherish it, love it and, sometimes, just give that mind of yours a rest! I can say without a doubt, the miracles are within you. May God show you that sooner than later! Hugs!
