Ahead of Schedule?

Can I really admit to the fact that I am so much of a nerd and so excited to send out our Christmas cards this year that I have already ordered them?!  That's right, last night Claire and I spent quite a bit of time designing and ordering Christmas cards for our family to send out .... and I am SO EXCITED about it!  I will admit that, while living with family on and off for the last six years, I had more than my fair share of jealousy over not being able to send out Christmas cards.  For me, this was associated with the fact that I was not married - I had no husband or family to show off pictures of, and I couldn't justify sending cards out with me and pictures of my brother's dog (as he suggested)!  Something in me always longed to be able to send out Christmas cards.  Guess what?  This year I get to do just that!  Last night, we placed our order and I will be addressing them over the course of the next month (let's face it, I did give myself too much time, but I'm just that excited about it!) until the amazing day comes that I get to SEND THEM OUT!!  Life, as I know it, is amazing :)

As a side note, I do want to say a very sincere thank you to everybody who commented on my last post or emailed me regarding it.  While my heart is still hurting, I have decided that it's time to move forward and scheduled an appointment with my OBGYN to find out what's going on.  That appointment is at 10:45am today.  I'm finally to the point where I'm ready to know the truth about anything that may be wrong (consider this a warning to anybody who doesn't want to know a little too much information about me - stop reading right now!), as I haven't had a visit from my unfriendly monthly guest since I miscarried in February.  This isn't necessarily abnormal for me, as I have never been completely regular, but I've also never been this irregular.  So, I've agreed with my Monte that it is time to figure out what's going on.  I would sincerely appreciate your prayers regarding this appointment.

That's all I've got for you today!  So, until next time, have a great day!
