Staycation Day 1

Mike and I took this week off work and we're doing a "staycation". Today we went down to the Corona Del Mar tide pools and poked around there a bit, and had a picnic on a little grassy hill overlooking the water. It was so pretty out today, I think it was about 78 degrees out there. It was pretty clear too and we could see Catalina Island from where we were sitting. After that we drove down to the Balboa Funzone and walked along the pier which was nice.

We left there and then went to a teeny tiny zoo a few cities over called the Santa Ana Zoo. I don't think I've been there since I was like 3 years old, and man after spending all your "zoo experiance" at the LA zoo and the San Diego zoo like your whole life...the Santa Ana Zoo was more like a park with a few monkeys in it lol. But hey, for $4 a person, it was fun. I'll post pics when I get em uploaded later. We have a full week ahead of us, so my blog will be on picture overload for a few days!

Just to note that I still have not had a positive OPK and I'm on CD 24. Trying not to think too much about TTC and babies for this week. Just want to relax, and have fun with my husband!

I love "staycations"! We do them all the time. Sounds like a great time. We went to the same zoo like a year ago, and it was teeny tiny, huh? lol. You're still in my thoughts. My cousin couldn't get pregnant for many years, so they decided to adopt. A week after adoption, they found out they were pregnant! Some miracles take time.

I just had send you a message...I just happen to come upon your blog and spent the last hour and a half reading your blogs and I want to let you know that you have really helped me to realize that I am not alone in my journey of TTC. My husband and I have been TTC for about 14months and weve had to put that on hold b/c he was recently deployed to Iraq. So I sit here day after day feeling sorry for myself b/c he's not here but after reading your journey I feel like I am not the only one going through all of those thoughts and emotions and that I am not being "punished" somehow by not being able to conceive so easily. Your journey has touched me and you and your husband are in my prayers. I do keep my faith in that God will someday bless my husband and I with our miracle and I know he will bless you and yours as well. Thank you, and I mean that.

Thank you so much for saying what you said. It means alot to me that my journey could help ease the pain of other's journeys even if only a little. I try to be so vocal about TTC because I feel like we shouldn't feel alone, and that there are so many of us in the same boat. You are in my prayers too, and thank you again for what you said, you gave me happy tears! *hugs*
