Welcome to ICLW!

Hi there, and welcome!  I haven’t participated in this event in quite a while.  I’m trying to get back into a regular groove of blogging but it’s been a struggle because I’ve been away for so long.  I have MUCH to say and I’m starting to get my butt in gear but it is very slow going.

You can see my journey over on the side bar but in case you don’t want to trudge through all of that here’s the short(er) version.

It took me over 10 years, 2 husbands, several IVF’s, lots and lots of tears and money but I FINALLY have my miracle Baby Girl.  She is the light of my life and my reason for getting out of bed in the morning.  I’m not exaggerating, either.

This blog is about my life, my daily struggles, my family, step-parenting and basically a place where I come to vent, cry, laugh and appreciate.  I’m contemplating some changes but never seem to have enough brain power to really decide what I want to do with this space.  For now it will remain and I will keep coming here to tell our story.  There is a lot to say.

I have noticed that the blogroll for ICLW is really short now.  I think that may have something to do with Reader going bye-bye last summer.  I know it affected me and how I read and follow blogs so I’m sure it affected many others as well.  If you have a resource to recommend for organizing/storing/reading blogs these days…please share.  I’d love to figure out a better way to stay connected to folks again…on my desktop and my phone.

Thank you for stopping by!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your daughter is just a week older than mine :-) I did not have sore wrist as much as really sore feet and very stiff fingers, but luckily went away after birth. My hair loss only kicked in around 6 mos post. Hope you are enjoying your baby girl, time flies by so fast!

Hi from ICLW. I use by blogger feed to keep track of my blogs. I think I was a wimp after my c-section. (I know someone who was playing tennis on day 6 - CRAZY!). Glad life is good with your precious little one!

So glad you're participating in ICLW again. I've been using Feedly since Reader closed and I love it. I know a lot of people also like Bloglovin.

I switched to The Old Reader after Google Reader shut shop.

Glad that you have a lovely little girl!

Hello! I use Feedly, and after a couple of days I settled into it just fine and love it now. They even have a Blogger-style template, if I recall correctly, to help ease the transition. (Smart idea!)
