Happy Sunday y’all! How is it already February?!?! It felt like January would never be over then all of a sudden it was. As you all know, we did our first cycle of IUI last month. I didn’t get a chance to update on the results, but it didn’t take. We are starting a second cycle this month. Hopefully I’ll have better news to report ๐Ÿ˜‰ We ended the month with flu taking over. So far only little man has it. We are really hoping it doesn’t spread to the rest of us.

Reading wise I started 2018 off with a bang! I managed to read 10 books and listen to 4 last month! I think I’m getting my reading mojo back finally. I’m on track with all my reading challenges.

Favorite January Quote

The grief is like a living thing inside meโ€”a beast with giant wingsโ€”quiet for a stretch before waking again, and digging into my heart with sharp claws.ย

This Week’s Book Fix

What are you looking forward to in February?

This month I’m looking forward to little man’s birthday. He will be seven and it just doesn’t seem possible that he is that old! He wants a Star Wars birthday party (no surprise there!) so we will be having friends and family over. Pinterest is being a big help with party ideas. I can say that much ๐Ÿ˜‰ Our second cycle of IUI is starting as well and I’m praying for a baby. Reading wise I have several ARCs on my TBR list this month and I’m excited to dive into them!

    • Thanks Michelle ๐Ÿ˜€ He is so excited for a Star Wars party. I already have silicone molds to make chocolates and I ordered a ton of stuff that I shouldn’t have. I’m hoping to make up for him missing Halloween and Christmas. Winter has been rough this year!

  1. I’m sorry the first round didn’t take. Here’s to hoping during the month of love!!! I also hope no one else gets sick…and that the little man doesn’t get the flu again. My work partner’s little one had the flu first week of January and has it again. Let’s hope this is the end of the flu!

    • Thank you Charlie! It’s been a rough winter. I’m ready for warmer weather so the kids don’t have to stay cooped up inside at school. Hopefully that will slow down the sickness.

    • Iโ€™m sorry youโ€™ve been so sick! Flu has been awful this year. Little man I thought had turned the corner and then he spiked a fever again today. The pediatrician thinks he has a secondary bacterial infection. Itโ€™s rough!!
