Nothing Doing

Nothing really going on here, so I haven't been posting.

Last weekend, John Dear took me for a belated birthday mini-break to Berkeley Springs, West Virginia. It was grey, rainy and cold. We wound up having a nice time, though. We talked through a lot of kid things and how JD would establish a connection with our kids, even though he would not have a genetic bond with them. I believe that as soon as the kid is born, he'll feel a bond with them, but I'm trying to help JD work through his anxieties.

It is difficult to be emotionally honest, but things have been a lot better since I have been practicing it. During yoga, my vision during meditation was of a photo of JD and I laughing into the camera with two kids in strollers. Things are going well.

It's so nice that you got away from the every day hustle and bustle and had the time to focus on one another. It sounds like you made some progress.

As for your yoga vision...that's a fantastic positive thing to focus on. I'm going to borrow that idea.

*hugs*

I'm so glad you got to spend some nice time together.

If you ever want to talk about the donor sperm stuff - you can e-mail me anytime. It isn't easy, but it really is worth the stress.

I'm glad you had a great time...I'm sure it was much needed. Sometimes it is helpful to visualize an ideal to get through the not-so-ideal.
