Today marks 26 months of waiting.
It’s amazing how reaching a milestone like this can put me in a funk. We had a nice Christmas (although it certainly wasn’t the one I truly wanted), we enjoyed time with my family, and I’ve had a good week. We had fun celebrating a friend’s birthday last night. But today my mood is in the toilet.
It doesn’t help that it is the end of the year. I cannot believe that I am once again saying to myself, “Next year will be better. Next year will be THE year.” I’ve been saying that at the end of every year since 2005; that’s the year we started on this family-building journey.
I’ve been through enough of these milestones, though, to know that the funk passes. Our plans for a fun New Year’s Eve celebration with friends will certainly help.
Bring it on, 2012. I am ready.
