I am alive, I promise. I have been reading more than I have been writing lately, but I am ready to get back at it. I am currently recovering from traveling to 6 states within 15 days.
We started off our holidays travels with a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. We swam in the ocean, relaxed by the pool, walked nature trails, and visited volcanoes. We left paradise on the 22nd returning briefly to Seattle to regroup and pack for Portland. Then we took the train on Christmas Eve to visit Greg's family on Christmas Eve. We ate delicous Greek food and played a super fun game of bingo for the family gift exchange. After opening presents and eating more food we returned to Seattle Christmas night to once again to regroup and pack. We flew into Atlanta the evening of the 26th and spent the night with my Aunt and Uncle. We visited with them and had great sausage biscut breakfast before heading east on I-20 to South Carolina to see my parents and sister's family. There we relaxed watching movies, playing games with my nephews, eating lots of fooding and strolling the park. After 4 or 5 days of family fun, we packed up the rental car for the 4 hour drive to Chattanooga, Tennesse to visit my best friend and her family. We went to dinner and to a concert to ring in the new year. This is where the crazy part came in. Not because of the cocktails had, because I am on the wagon these days, but the lack of sleep After getting in around 1:30 in the morning, we turned around and woke up at 4:30 AM to catch a 10 AM flight in Atlanta back to Seattle. To sup it up: Hawaii FANTASTIC, Oregon FUN, Georgia NICE, South Carolina RELAXING and Tennesse SHORT. We love traveling and we had blast on all of our trips, but my body promptly reminded me that I am not 21 anymore by getting jet lag and a cold upon returning. The good news is, that they have both already passed. This past holiday was a good one! All of our trips were fun, no one got on our nerves, and most importantly we were able to relax.
Although I had fun the last few weeks, AF arrived while I was in South Carolina proving the theory that if I "just relax I will get pregnant" is a bad one. I was not disappointed, but excited to get started on our FET cycle. More details to come, but in the mean time Happy New Year!
