Anyone out there?

It has been nearly a year since my last post here. Although I wrote in my last post about whether I should abandon the blog or continue to post here, I don't know that I necessarily made a conscious decision to completely quit the blog. It was more that it had begun to feel like one more task that I couldn't quite stay on top of and that I felt I had moved far from my original reason for beginning to write here: infertility.

There have been a handful of occasions during the past year when I have had thoughts that I would have liked to share with. . . someone. . . but those thoughts didn't seem appropriate for this space. They were either musings about current events, the challenges of motherhood, or other topics that have nothing to do with infertility. And while I know that plenty of other infertility bloggers write about these topics (and I have, too, on occasion), I just didn't feel right doing so.

I consider my infertility "resolved." I am nearing 46 years of age, and we do not intend to have more children, for several good reasons. I have talked with my sons in a rudimentary way about the means of their conception, and they get it. . . as much as two not-quite-5-year-olds can.

Our sons are doing great. They will be 5 next month, and they bring us so much joy (and frustration, at times). Their personalities are night-and-day different, and they don't even look like twins these days. Being their mom is fun, most of the time.


I know several of my former followers have found me on Fac.ebo.ok (where I post photos of my sons engaged in various activities on a pretty regular basis). If you are reading this post and would like to connect, email me at the email address in my profile.

I love comments! Just one caution: if you want to leave a negative comment on this blog, I would ask that you question the motive for doing so; I will not publish it. Thanks.
