The last time I wrote was in the beginning of November, and I promised an IVF update which I failed to give. After a long LONG preparation for a frozen embryo transfer (FET) we transferred 2 precious embryos. The day before Thanksgiving we found out it didn't work. November was a dark place for me. I was beyond frustrated with my body and its inability to get its act together. I was extremely negative about the FET, I had no hopes that it was going to work. If I am honest I was depressed. I didn't want to do anything, didn't want to see anyone and I am sure I was super fun to live with. I became very hardened and numb to the whole process of IVF. I was tired, physically and mentally and wasn't myself at all. The girl who had gone through the past 3 years with a pretty positive attitude, was officially a Debbie Downer.

Monroe and I didn't get a Christmas tree this year, we didn't even put up one decoration. It was such a fast holiday and we here hardly home. I can't wait to decorate next year. We headed to Dallas on December 17th for our cousin Kyle's wedding. It had been a little over a year since we had been to Dallas. It was just what my heart needed. It was so close to Christmas that we didn't get to see everyone but we sure had so much fun seeing who was still in town. We realized that we can't wait a year before traveling back ever again.
