A New Me

I realize that I haven't written anything in a while. I've seen much improvement in my attitude over the past month. Reading through the Love Dare, along with other Christian marital texts has helped guide and shape me into the wife that I want to be.

About a week and a half ago, Brandon and I decided that I should stop taking birth control. It made me feel unbalanced. It also had some other strange side effects that I could no longer handle. So, after 7 years, I am now birth control free. It's exciting and scary all at the same time. I found a helpful website to keep up with my cycles. I'm new to the world of fertility charting, but I figure I better practice for when we decide to start trying to conceive (TTC).

As far as TTC is concerned, I believe that we will start actively trying around the first of the year. For some reason, I see us actually conceiving in December. Maybe it's just wishful thinking, but when I look at the December calendar I get this happy feeling. For now, I'm just praying that my body functions correctly and that I ovulate this month. I think that I am, but again, fertility charting is still pretty new to me.

Also, Brandon put in his two weeks notice with his job. Hopefully, he will only be home for the month of August. I'm a little nervous because we don't know when he'll start his other job. I'm trying to trust God and my husband on this one.

I feel like there is so much going on in our lives right now. I'm just trying to take advantage of all of the blessings that God has given me.
