I had my dancing socks on today. 🙂 I participated this year is Sock It To Me- a yearly sock exchange that is best described HERE. In trying to find the exact post- I just found out there is going to be a Winter 2010 Sockeroo! WOOOHOOO. Definitely check it!
Last time I didn’t find this lovely blog until AFTER the sign up ended- well actually I found it when people started posting pictures. I almost bought myself some damn socks and posted them myself. I now realize that would have been fine. This IF world is a kooky bunch, and we all love each other no matter what. Whatever makes you feel good- is fine with all of us.
So- if you didn’t get a sock buddy- go buy yourself some socks and post a picture! Love on yourself. Bookmark SmartOne and make sure you participate next year.
Anyhoo.. I got my socks from Missy. She is sweetie. I have not known of her before now- and I am delighted to have found her, and I look forward to following her. I hope I can encourage her!
She sent these cute socks to me with the to honor the city she hails from that has a rich musical history. I LOVE THEM! It was sweet of her to choose a pair to that shared a piece of her. She has been going through a lot- so go over and give her some loves. :}
The past year I have been so blessed to have discovered the wonderful world of blogging in the IF community. I was lost, and one day I sat down at my computer and thought- the WORLD is out there. You can find anything on the internet..surely I can find someone to talk to. I typed in Infertility Support Groups (CITY, STATE) I couldn’t find anything.
I couldn’t believe it. Not a thing. I was having a really hard time- I suffer from seasonal depression also, and it this was a particularly hard time. I kept typing in different phrases and clicking on links. I found a few message boards, but they seemed odd. They didn’t click for me. They layout was impersonal and hard to follow. I couldn’t keep up and was overwhelmed.
One day I was looking to try to figure out what in the world TTC, 3dp5dt, FET,ICSI, DH, um, and so on meant (I feel kinda silly now). Somehow I came upon The Stirrup Queen’s Blog. I immediately loved her name.
I had already had an IRL blog for a few years, and after finding Mel’s blog– and reading a few I found from her website I decided to start my own. The rest is history. Here I am.
The love from all you ladies has helped me in ways that are immeasurable. I know I am forever changed for the better, and I have made lifelong friends that I feel blessed to have.
I would like to buy you all a Coke. And teach you all to sing. 🙂
LOVE YOU ALLLLLLLLLLL!
