I can breathe...

For the first time in a long while, I managed to get through a whole day of work without feeling inadequate.

While I had some reminders of what could have been today (the catalog that arrived in the mail that advertises a "Baby's 1st Christmas" ornament, or the slight tinge of pink mixed in with my CM) I did not cry, or dwell, or or even really think about my situation. I just made it through my day and came home.

This is life. This is moving on. This feeling of complete normalcy, which I've managed to forget. I know that I won't do this well every day, but it proves that I can surprise myself.

My head may be congested, and my nose may be stuffy, but boy, did I ever breathe today.

I've just discovered your blog. I am going to add it to my list. I think of the blissful ignorance I had before I started trying to conceive and finding out we had problems.

Here's to a few mundane days full of just life. They are a blissful thing indeed.

We would never have known that had we not walked so far.
