The December From Hell

Wow, I cannot WAIT for 2012.  December has been a rough, rough, ROUGH month for this girl!  I really struggled this month with the fact that I haven't gotten pregnant yet.  It makes me feel worthless.  It makes me lose sight of how amazing my life is.  It makes my husband think I no longer love him.  It makes my life a m-e-s-s!

Yesterday, Kol and I had to trade both of our cars for one in order to lower our debt-to-income ratio.  So, we are now the proud owners of a 2012 Honda CR-V EX-LR:

This is Tate Xander.  Love him.

The reason we need to lower our DTI is to get into our dream house.  We're currently in a bidding war.  Please pray that they accept our offer if it's God's will!

On the baby side of things, I went to the gyno yesterday.  The did an ultrasound and all of my lady parts look healthy.  My ovarian follicles were a bit on the small side, which lead him to believe I may not be ovulating properly, so he gave me a prescription for Clomid.  Hopefully we'll be pregnant by February!  If not, Kol and I have decided to adopt.  I'm super-excited about the prospect of having a child!!!

Keep praying.

Finding Myself

I would like to get real with y'all this morning.  I have always struggled a bit with my sexuality.  Don't get me wrong: I'm crazy about my husband and have been since the moment I met him.  But even as a child, I was sexually curious about girls.  Who isn't?  I believe everyone is a bit bi-curious but just might not be comfortable enough to admit it.  I'm going to go ahead and say today that I am occasionally attracted to a woman.  I would never pursue it beyond an innocent kiss on the mouth, but that doesn't change the fact that it's there.  It exists.  And I don't want to hide it any more. 

I grew up in a very conservative community in Indiana.  Racism and homophobia run rampant.  I never felt like I fit there, and that's why I moved away as soon as I could.  The worst feeling EVER is not being able to be true to yourself, and I never felt I was able to just be me in Indiana. 

Judge me if you will, but that's not your place.  I know who I am.  I love who I am.  And God loves me no matter what you think.

Keep praying.

NOT Approved

The seller backed out on the house we put an offer on (because he's super-cool like that), so we're back to the drawing board...
