Life is oh so good right now. I haven’t written on here in a while but I wanted to let you know that we are doing really well and are really happy. I had received a lot of feedback and concern over my last blog post, and I want you to know that I don’t ever usually write about something like that until I have gotten to an emotional place where I understand it, respect it, and have the ability to learn from it. I have been doing a lot of self-reflection and as I have said before, writing and sharing with others helps me grow personally in many ways. So with that said, I’d love to share some ramblings and some updates on things that we’ve been up to this last little while!
I have a new job that is treating me wonderfully and keeping me very busy. I miss the people that I worked with at my old job and I definitely miss the flexibility of working from home, but I love being a part of a team and feeling busy but not so busy that I don’t sleep and have to work until 2:00 AM every day busy.
Dallin is working on his second year of his apprenticeship and things are going really well! We have loved St. George this past year and living so close to Zion and family. It is a beautiful city with perfect weather all year long. I can’t complain.
Dallin is also working on a new project that we’ll be announcing soon, but I’m super excited about it! It’s something I’ve always wanted and imagined and thought “this would be such a great idea” and now he is actually going to make it happen! More to come on that later, though.
With my new job comes some great perks and I get to travel a lot more than I ever thought. I have gotten to go to places I have never been for recruiting trips, and Dallin was able to travel to Japan (turns out he guest posted on my blog and I didn’t even know about it!)
I signed up for a half marathon and I am FREAKING OUT about it. For someone who has never run more than 5 miles, this will be huge. But it is pretty motivating for me to get my steps and get out and moving. Add me on Fitbit for some friendly competition because I’m pretty into it right now 🙂
To be honest, though, one major reason that I am feeling so much less stressed is that I have been taking a break from really thinking about infertility. I am taking a break from tracking everything, taking my temperature, timing, etc. Due to a lot of hormone irregularities, I am working with my doctor to get everything balanced and straightened out so that things will get back to normal and I can actually determine if I am able to get pregnant without further intervention. She has asked me to cut gluten out of my diet completely and I am working on it! I can’t say that I have been perfect but I am definitely trying to make it a priority. But taking this break has been much needed. It is definitely temporary and definitely a break. I think after tracking dutifully for almost a year and a half it is just nice to not worry about it, but it won’t last forever.
Anyways, stay tuned for some updates about some cool stuff Dallin has going on and hopefully some more posts in general!
