/ The RE's Muse: Time for me to fly (aka post #297)

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

Time for me to fly (aka post #297)

I think the time has come to 'shut 'er down'--"her" being this here blawg.

This space was a much needed refuge for me when I was deep in the throes of infertility hell. It was back in early 2004 that I first came upon that founding mother, Grrl at Chez Miscarriage, during a G00gle search and discovered the world of infertility blogs. I 'met' some wonderful women here, all of whom knew firsthand the exact misery I was going through (you ladies all know who you are) and were able to help me keep my head up and keep moving forward. I hope I was able to help any and all of you at least half as much as you did me.

Now, over 4 years later, I'm chasing after two toddlers and trying to stay afloat as a partner, wife, best friend, daughter, etc. If anyone had told me back in 2000, when we first started trying to conceive, that this would one day by my life, I'd have called them a liar (but in a nice way). Today, eight years later, I have everything I ever wanted and then some...alas, but without enough hours in the day to enjoy it all.

I think it's time for me to go, to move on from this place. Sadly, blogging has taken a back seat to just about everything else in my life these days.

I'll still be around in the comments section, checking in on you. If anyone is interested in staying in touch, feel free to give me a shout at themesas @ gmail dot com. I'm also on Faceb00k so, if you're on there too and we're not yet Faceb00k friends, holla at your girl :-) and I'll give you the lowdown on my real name (which most of you probably know already) so you can find me/I can find you and we can keep the romance alive.

Wishing you each love and peace on your journey through this crazy world.
Thank you for sharing the ride with me along the way.

They thank you too...for helping their mom be a better person and mother.

Hi Dee! I added you as a friend on Facebook, but I thought I should give you a heads up since I haven't been around for a while. This way you won't be thinking, "Who in the world is that??"
