I am alive..

I have not fallen off the earth...although it kind of feels that way.

We have had a busy few weeks. We went to Florida for our niece/god-daughter for her baptism. It was awesome and we were so proud to become god-parents! Olivia is a beautiful baby...so sweet and precious. And of course I cannot post without a picture of her...without further ado.......

It was a really quick trip but we packed a lot in...City Walk at Universal, Busch Gardens, Baptism, Sea World. We were only there from Friday afternoon to Monday morning!

Last weekend we had a party at the O'club....Night In Olde Havana...we had a great time and I am already looking forward to the next party. This is the "summer o'fun"...I have to party my heart out! And of course I got to see the general....I heart him! He is such a great guy and it is kind of sad that he will be leaving Lejeune in a few months. This party was his last social event. I really hope that he will be the one to sign off on BJ's FMF (Fleet Marine Force) stuff. It would be so awesome to have him approve it, since he has been so supportive of BJ doing his FMF and is always interested to hear how we are settling into Navy/Marine Corps life. Of course I forgot to take the camera to the party...so no pictures. So sad. :(

BJ has a crazy week...oh and by the way, he is now the Annex Clinic Head, yay baby!....he had his Marine Corps PFT yesterday, he has a big meeting today, a fellow dentist is here from Japan and he is meeting with her today to show her around, Navy PFT is Thursday followed by a CCDS (Coastal Carolina Dental Society) dinner, and pistol qual on Friday. Holy moly that is a lot! About the new position...it is kind of a big deal. They have essentially given him his own clinic to run. He has about 10 people that he is in charge of. Since he has only been in the Navy for 4 1/2 months...this is huge! It is rare that someone so new is given such a big responsibility. So needless to say we are super proud around here! I heart him! And being the fantastic wife that I am...I have decided to bring goodies in every week for the staff....brownies last week and cookies this week...they are gonna love me!

Nothing new to report on the babymaking front...since we are not doing IVF again until August. For right now we are just enjoying this time and all the fun that comes our way. I am still sad that we are not pregnant but trying to focus on the future and that it will happen. I thought I was doing great until last week at a OWC luncheon when another wife came up to me and said "I'm so sorry". It did not register at first that she was talking about our failed IVF but when it did (which was only a second), I lost it. I guess this is par for the course when you are open and honest about your struggles with infertility. I was mortified that I was bawling at this lunch. While I appreciate the support and concern....totally wrong place, wrong time. I know she meant well but geez. I guess I should not be too upset that I got make-up all over her dress...consider it paybacks!

Well, I guess this enough of an update for now....I promise to not go missing this long again.
