In high school I drove a 1988 Dodge 600 which we endearingly called Brutus the Beast. Then in 2004 I bought a 2001 Plymouth Neon. I NEVER got in an accident when I drove those "starter" cars...in fact, I had a clean driving record (with the exception of 1 speeding ticket-darn those Utah highway patrols). When Jared and I moved to CT, we bought a new Honda Accord. I LOVE this car, it is the first brand new car I have ever owned. Maybe 2 months later I rear ended someone on my way to work. It wasn't a bad accident, with so little damage the police didn't file anything about it. So finally 3 weeks ago we got my beloved car fixed and I was a happy girl once more.
Fast forward to Wednesday: I am driving on the highway. I was actually driving with my radio off trying to have a little quiet time of personal reflection. Out of nowhere a HUGE rock (practically boulder) comes flying at me. It hit my windshield with a vengeance and created a spirally bull's eye crack bigger than my hand (not to mention, scared me to tears). Here is some photographic proof of my near death experience: (the 1st one is the best picture to show the damage, I just like the 2nd and the 3rd makes me giggle)
A #2 Anniversary (yesterday)
Wow, 2 years! I have heard people say the first 2 years are the hardest- I hope that is true, because if it is the rest of eternity will be a walk in the park. We have definitely had our ups and downs, but it has been an AWESOME 2 years! We love to have fun and laugh, but have also had trials that have brought us closer together than we could have imagined. I love Jared SOOO much. Ok, enough cheesiness... we went to Cheesecake Factory to celebrate. Jared gave me a necklace and pearl earrings, and I gave him (drum roll please).... a sweatshirt- so romantic, huh? Just kidding, it is what he wanted. Here is us at dinner:
A #3 Artificial Insemination
We had our 3rd cycle of IUI yesterday (yes on our anniversary) and today. We are feeling pretty good about this round- not to mention how cool it would be if it works on our anniversary! Right now I am trying to find the balance between having faith and hope, yet preparing myself for if it doesn't work. Feel free to keep us in your prayers, we could use the help! Don't worry, though, if this doesn't work, we have 2 rounds of invitro available through our insurance. Here is my medical bracelet (I like to put pictures with my posts, and there aren't alot of options for this subject).
Those are the 3 A's of our week.
