Saturday was a great day.  I was SO happy!!  It was my grandparent’s birthdays–my grandmother turned 80 and my grandfather turned 90, and we were celebrating at my parent’s house.  I didn’t finish the blanket that I am making for my grandmother, but I did bring part of it to show her.  She LOVED it!  She is very excited.  I am happy about that; she has Alzheimers disease, and is depressed most of the time.  Any bit of happiness I can bring her just makes it that much better.  We also got to see many family friends that we haven’t seen in quite some time, and the party was a wonderful success.  DH and I even got our taxes done!  But the best (personal) part was that Saturday marked day 1–I start the Clomid on Wednesday!!  Can’t wait!!

The rest of our weekend went well.  We got the house back in order, prepared for the boys coming next weekend, and spent some time together adding a few touches to the house. 

Then today happened.  I woke up feeling awful.  So much pain!!  I took the painkiller that I am allowed to take (the one I would normally take I am no longer allowed to–with us trying to get pg, a lot of the meds I take to regulate pain are no longer options), and crawled onto the couch.  As usual, I called my mom and dad, chatted a bit about why I was up so early.  Then DH calls.  He was crying–something that is WAY abnormal, and really freaked me out.  A friend (his coworker) passed away on Friday due to a massive heart attack–he was only 34.  I can’t believe he’s gone–it breaks my heart to think of it.  The worst news was that he was putting his two little girls to bed when it happened, and they are only 6 and 4.  That poor family…I can’t even imagine what they are going through, and I want to do what I can for them.  He and his family are amazing people.  It still hasn’t quite sunk in yet….

I am just so torn right now…very sad and heart broken for the loss of a friend and the pain that that family is in, and excitement and anticipation for the start of ours.  For now–I am just going to knit.  I can’t think about anything right now…I just don’t want to.
