Ok, so this is my first blog ever and I really hope it doesn’t suck. But even if it does, I doubt anyone’s reading it anyway as no one knows I’m blogging (well, except you, but hey what’s a little insecurity between friends!).

So, what’s going on that’s so interesting you would want to read about it… hmmm… well, I’ll think of something. In the meantime, maybe we should get to know each other. As mentioned over on the side (yeah, over to the left, there) I married my high school sweetheart. Awesome hubby. We’ve been actively TTC (in case you don’t speak infertility, that’s Trying To Conceive) for right around five years. We’ve gotten really good at the trying part, but the conceiving has been a bit elusive. Recently I bit the bullet and saw a fertility specialist, so we’re holding out hope that we may have a baby, yet. More on that later…

On to the family! Let’s start with the dogs. I’ve had my Waldo for 12 years. He’s a grumpy old man, now but I still love him to pieces. Then about two years ago in a fit of infertility induced insanity I got Emma. Emma is adorable. Emma is funny. Emma is the most hyperactive, stubborn, willful, dominate little pug on the planet. That might be an exaggeration, but I’m going to need proof before I’ll retract it. That said I loves my puggins. We also have a very mean, very old cat named Mean Kitty. Yes, that is her name. Yes, it fits. She was mean before she got old, it’s just who she is.

OK, and the rest… There are the nephews (my sister’s boys). Big C is 5 and he’s a hoot and a half. He’s one of those kids that asks questions that make you realize the wheels are always turning. Little C is 18 months. He’s a sweet little snuggle bunny. He’s at that almost talking stage, so he says a lot, but nobody knows what it means. We have one 9 month old neice, H, on G’s side, too. She’s a little angel.

Oh, me, you want to know something about me? I’m a CRM Software Developer. Translation: Geek. I have a great job, and I work for a good little company. I really want a baby, as mentioned above. Other than that, I’m trying to find out a little more about me, too. I’m a pleaser and a nurturer and really insecure. Meaning, I’ll do just about anything to make others happy. I like to read, but mostly I just like helping out or playing with the boys & dogs.

So here we are. First blog down. That wasn’t so bad, was it?
