I am not sick anymore…THANK GOODNESS! I am still not 100% but I am doing better than I was last week or the week before. It feels god to be back to myself. being sick is exhausting.
Let’s talk about the kid’s Birthday Party I went to this weekend. I was good during the whole party and was having fun visiting with a lot of friends I haven’t seen in a while. besides Facebook. It was at this place, indoors, that was full of playgrounds to play on. It was cool and great for the 2-7 year old kids that were there. AND only 2 kids got hurt so it was good LOL. It was a good time. After that we went out to eat with Em*, her husband, and their two kids. We had a good time with them, as usual. Something amazing happened too! I was super jealous because even though their almost 2-year-old always loves hanging out with me she still said Josh’s name first. I was kind of saddened by that. Then, as we were leaving the restaurant, Em’s* husband said, “Say bye to Tiff”(we shorten it to Tiff to try to get her to say it) and she said it, “Bye Tiff” WWWHHHHHHAAAATTTTTTT!!!!!!!! I was so excited! When we got in the car I was gushing about how she finally said my name. I was in my own little world. I was ecstatic until I got home and checked Facebook. I see that Em* tagged me in a post. I was just assuming it was something about the party but that’s not why I was tagged. (Edited to protect whoever might not want information out there) “So thankful for the great friends (Retail Store) has given us! We celebrated (Friend’s Son)’s 4th birthday today and then met up with Tiffany and Josh, who my kids adore and after leaving (Em’s* Daughter) kept saying tiff, josh! They are so good to my kids and couldn’t ask for better friends”
….. I started to cry. I was overwhelmed with emotions. I was elated that Em* felt that way, that we have these great kids in our lives, and that we have such great friends in our lives. I was also devastated. That I spent the day with all my friends that have kids…most of them have two kids, that the first baby in my life to say my name wasn’t my baby, that I adore these kids with all my heart but they aren’t mine, that we were the only friends at the party without kids, and that we are still on this journey that feels like it is going nowhere. Josh then yelled to me from the other room. Telling me that because I am better with words to comment something nice. He had already wrote a comment but it was just a thank you type phrase. So, I sat there for about 5 minutes trying to figure out what to write because I was stuck. I couldn’t move, couldn’t breathe, couldn’t think to even begin to type. I mustered up some words then went to bed. I had no desire to try to stay awake after that. I had no energy to function. I sulked for the rest of the night and got over it.
I found the positive the next day. This little girl said my name, we have great friends, and we spent the whole day with great people. My job is going well. I understand how people said it can be stressful but so far it is a stress that I can manage. This job is also the kind that you don’t bring home which makes me happy. Things are good. I am going to look into my insurance again tomorrow to see what is under the specialist category. I have only been there for a month, I don’t know if that means anything. All I know is that I have high deductible and HSA Account. I have never had insurance like this so I am not sure what to do with it. I’ll figure it out. Once I get that situated I am calling my doctor for an appointment. Well, we are in our ovulation time so I have to go. Wish us luck!
