I've tried to stay away from blogging lately because I have nothing but negative things to say.
And I didn't want to totally be "that" blogger. 
But it is life right now. 
I know my life isn't horrible, we are just going through a really rough time right now.

The job I was supposed to have a third interview with fell through.
A currently employee of the company asked to transfer, so they filled the position.
I had two other interviews with a company, and the title of the job was far
from the actual duties of the job. It paid like shit and was only 25 hours max each week.
So I'm back to taking a retail job that pays slim to none, and is only part time.
In the mean time, I'm sending out resumes every day and
looking for a second part time job, because we need the money.

While we were living in San Diego we knew we had an issue with our mail, 
half the time it was that our apartment number was missing, even though we always wrote it down.
Many, many other times we simply never got our mail. 
We've had several medical bills go to collections because we never received the bills. 
That's the first time we find out about them.
We thought we had received all of them and were up to date on payments.
Until we moved, changed our address and suddenly medical bills are rolling on in. 
I just got one today that says date of service is January 2011. 

To make a really long story short, as much as it kills me, 
we have to stop trying to have baby.
At least for a little while.
We are just so far in over heads right now.
I'm devastated. 
But we just don't have any other options right now. 
So if you don't see me around blogging for a while, you know why.
I just can't really deal right now, so I'm just taking some time for myself to deal with things.


  1. I just wanted to say that I'm thinking of you, and hope the crappy stuff passes soon...and the work situation gets better...and the baby trying starts up again really soon.

  2. This makes me so sad for you Jen. I home things change in the very near future. :*(

  3. Just found your blog, I am so sorry to hear you are struggling. We are dealing with some of the same struggles in our house, so I know how disheartening it is to keep trying. We just moved to a new state for a job after months of unemployment in Arizona, my husband interviewed on a Tuesday, was told to come in the following Monday to start and when he went in they told him they had eliminated the position due to budget issues. know we just moved for this job, right? Anyway - we love our new location, so we are going to stick it out, but the job search is rough! Hang in there and know that there are people praying for you as we all try to stay afloat in this crappy economy!

  4. I'm thinking of you, sweet girl. I REALLY hope things start to look up for you. :)

  5. thinking of you and sending lots of good thoughts your way!!!

  6. I know you don't know me, but add me to the pile of girls who had to struggle for years to make the family they so desperately want. (3 years, 2 ivfs for my DD just about to start all over again for baby #2)

    I know how much you want kids. I know how hard it is to have to put that on hold. I'm so sorry you have to suffer like that.

    I'm rooting for you.
