Where to start

I have been MIA for a while but I have been wanting to blog but it just hasn't been a priority in my life at the moment.

My mind has been running overtime, I have so much happening that I just haven't known where to start and finding the time is another issue. I've been

  • Working more hours at work until new girl is on board
  • Trying to get study done, which was only put on hold only over the xmas break
  • Trying to get my head around my new gluten free liftstyle
  • Working with my naturopath about getting all my levels right, asking the questiong why my BT are so low at the start of my cycle
  • Exercising to destress my mind & body
But the biggest issue is having my beautiful SIL admitted to a Mental Health Hospital with depression & anxiety, while leaving home her 3 gorgeous kids & husband at home, 400km away. It is devastating, this has taken a toll on the whole family and especially my in-laws.  So this has been consuming my life over the last couple of weeks, I've been spending my time trying to to be there for the kids, my BIL and in-laws.  It is just so sad, she is such a gorgeous girl with everyone she could ever hope for but she has just fallen into a huge hole. 

And to top it all off I turn 35 tomorrow.  I really don't feel my age and normally wouldn't care. But as anyone dealing with IF knows, numbers become important in this game of IF...

Until next time....

ps....thankyou to Tee for thinking about me.....You are a very special person.....


  1. Bee (HUGS). I've been wondering where you got to. I'm so sorry to hear about your SIL. I know too well about mental illness as depression and anxiety runs in my family. I've also been diagnosed with anxiety but refuse to be on medication as I would prefer the natural methods. It sounds like you have so much on your plate and I'm sure it doesn't play well when your TTC. I hope you can find some time to yourself. Wishing you a wonderful birthday tomorrow!

  2. Bee.. of course we have to look out for one another, its unAustralian to leave a mate behind. I noticed you hadn't posted since your Aus Day Post and thought you might of drowned in the bottle of wine you were going to open! Im glad you are back. Im sorry for what you and the family are going through though.

    When Oprah visited Australia, she said she was very impressed and amazed at our way of living.. Australians WORK to LIVE, not LIVE to WORK. So I hope that work/life/balance evens out for you, I know I had to assess this and have dropped back to 4 days a week in 2011.

    HUGE HAPPY BDAY too....xo
