30 Day Infertility Blog Challenge: Day 30

First of all, I haven't posted this much since LAST July!  

Second, it is fitting that today is the last of the Infertility Blog Challenge posts, as today marks one year from the day of my ER and P's conception.  How is that possible?  How do I have this little man sleeping on my chest?  Where did the time go?  I am kind of in a daze, honestly.  

26 eggs, 20 embryos, 7 blasts, 1 baby (so far, fingers crossed!!!).  In one year I have become an Aunt (biologically speaking...already have 5 nieces and nephew on Hubby's side) and a Mother, and not just in spirit.  

I am really starting to have a hard time seeing January 1st as the new year, when so many milestones in my life occur at other times of the year.  So many other dates that mark a change in my life.  So many other dates that really were new beginnings...

July 31 will be forever etched in my mind...

May you all find your July 31 just around the corner.

30.After a month of infertility talk, we need a distraction. Give us a link to one of your favorite non-infertility-sites, or tell us about your favorite distraction activity/book/feel-good movie.

If I get into movies, activities, or books, we'll be here until NEXT July 31.  So, instead, I give you my favorite online site, which I unfortunately forget to visit every Friday and end up catching up on months at a time.  

Are you a photography fan?  Then it is FOR YOU!

Are you a comic strip fan?  Then it is FOR YOU!

Are you a zombie fan?  Then it is FOR YOU!!!  (oh, you know who you are!)

Are you a fan of sarcasm and irony?  Then it is FOR YOU!

Are you a fan of random thoughts?  Then it is FOR YOU! 

Basically, you all should go there now!  I hope you enjoy.  

A Softer World was introduced to me by LilSis.  And I fell instantly in love.  I scoured the archives.  Let's just say my favorite strip (that always sticks with me) is the one about lesbian dinosaurs.  Of course, as I mentioned, I am waaaaay behind (note to self: set reminder to read on Fridays).  I bet there are many more that I would want printed.  Because you can do that!

What, you want t-shirts?  Oh, they've got shirts.  And prints.  And books.  And other stuff.  We have the glow-in-the-dark zombie attack shirt.  Unfortunately they don't make it in a onesie or P would have one, too.  (Note to self: email them and see if they can do it!)  We actually saw the shirt on someone else, and asked where he got it...and when he told me I nearly died.  HOLY SMALL WORLD, BATMAN! lalala.  I shall stop gushing.

  1. I love A Softer World!! :D I'd completely forgotten about it because my old computer crashed and I lost all my bookmarks. Thanks for the reminder!
    And it seems fitting to congratulate you and your hubby again on your parenthood. And not to forget P, who managed to grow from a tiny embryo into a pretty amazing kid :) With his mom's help, of course.


Whip me, beat me, take away my charge card. Or just leave a comment. Whichever works best for you :)
