Trying New Things

Let's be honest: I have been in a rut lately. With all the stress from trying for Baby Hill and then all the bad news we have received recently, I have not been my normal self and was worried it would then reflect on my blog too. I hate when I am a "Debbie Downer" (as Husband calls it) and over the past couple of days I have been thinking long and hard for a way to adjust my outlook on life- because I definitely do not want to be bitter over this whole baby process.

So, Husband and I have decided to use this waiting period as a time to just enjoy life. We both want to try some new things (things we couldnt do if I was pregnant) and we think this could be the perfect way to help us give this hard time a positive spin! For example, today I am going to give this a try:


Seriously, I am not a very athletic person- and I definitely have not actually played golf before (only the miniature kind). Husband is the most athletic person I know (he can play practically any sport) BUT the one sport he always has trouble with is golf- its actually quite funny to hear him get frustrated by the fact that he's not good at it. So, we will be hitting the driving ranges today (we are going to start there because I dont think I could actually start on a golf course- baby steps!).

We have some other ideas of fun things we would like to try (wine tastings!) and are actually looking forward to making the best of this time. Hopefully, all of you will enjoy watching me try my hand at some of these new things too!
Have a happy weekend everyone :)

Golf is a great way to relieve some stress. Something about whacking the snot out of a ball is just plain soothing :) Now if only I could be as good at golf as the hubs...

I have never done a wine tasting either and would love to! My MIL signed me up for the wine-of-the-month club for my b-day and that has been a lot of fun being surprised when wine shows up at my door! :) Hope everything gets better for you. I know how frustrating TTC can be...but it's nothing that wine can't fix for a little while!

Please let us know how golfing goes! My hub is a huge golf maniac and is always trying to get me to go with him.

I am going to do the award in my next pot I think :) Thanks again!

Golf can be so much fun! Besides, you can buy some cute outfits:)

This is a GREAT idea- definitely use this time to do lots of fun things. I am sorry to hear you've been waiting longer than expected for an addition to the family, but I think you guys are so smart to relax during this time. I'm sure it's hard not to be stressed, but I bet it will happen when you're least expecting it :)
