The Sunday Salon: Plans Moving Forward

Sunday, June 14, 2015

I know it's like a broken record, but I really do want to get back into blogging regularly. I was looking at my blog archives and saw that even back in 2013 I only posted 12 times!So it's been quite a while that I've been essentially MIA.

I actually have drafted reviews that I never posted and have lots of others to write. Although I don't read nearly as often as I was used to, it's still one of my favorite activities. And even though it's a relaxing stress reliever, I often can't seem to relax enough to pick up a book in the first place! So that is an effort I'm going to try to work more toward.

Not much is new in my life, sadly. This past December, Jason and I wrapped up our second IVF attempt unsuccessfully. That's the end of our attempts. As it is we will be paying back the loan we took out for the IVFs until summer of 2019!

Since then (well, a few months later) I have taken up the hobby of running, and now I'm obsessed! I even started a running blog -- if you're interested it's at It's so weird starting out with that blog because the running blog community is huge and well established (like the book blogging community) and I'm trying to figure out how to join in and take part -- something I did with this blog several years ago now so I don't remember. It's like being the new girl at school, haha!

So tentative plans for now are to post a review at least once a week (starting tomorrow). At some point I also need to start replacing pictures on this blog... a while ago I deleted my google+ account and accidentally deleted all images associated with my google account, i.e., this blog! So I've slowly had to go back and add the images again, but I have many more to do.

Jenny, it's always good to see you here! I am so very sorry the IVF didn't work. I can't understand how you must be feeling about that, since I don't think I want children myself, but I sympathize and I'm sure it's incredibly difficult. I've been blogging sporadically too - life gets in the way!!

I am sorry that the IVF didn't work and I too am running too. I actually stopped blogging . I am more burnt out than anything . Good luck with getting back into it . I am busy with kids and school.

I am so sorry that the IVF attempt was not successful. I feel for you. I really do. It's hard to say what I'd do in the same situation but my church has been encouraging adoptions and fostering and I see a lot of couples going that route. It's not for everyone, obviously.

A running blog? Have you read Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running? Such a good book.

I'm so happy to hear you're back, and so sorry to hear round two of IVF didn't work either. I spend far too much time thinking about the nonsensical whys of who gets pregnant and when. I'm glad you've found something to throw yourself into. Wish I could share my baby with you:-)
