Today was a wild one and is just the beginning of a super busy week that involves some kind of meeting or event EVERY NIGHT after work unless we really do get all of this snow they are talking about.
I am worn out and of course football is on our T.V. Yes- we only have ONE T.V. We made the decision to get rid of the T.V. in our bedroom this summer because it was old and we NEVER used it, but nights like this when I am missing Pretty Little Liars & The Bachelor because of football, I do miss it. Thank goodness for DVR. Because I am not watching football, too tired to read, and not willing to give in and go to bed at 9:30 so I thought I would blog. This may be the most random post yet so bear with me.

  • We love some SEC around the Snyder house so I am pretty sure the Mr. is cheering for Auburn tonight, but I am lovin' the dayglo socks that the Oregon Ducks are sporting! nice.

  • TMI ALERT!!!
Today is day 26 for me. This is month 14 of attempting to make our family of 3 a family of 4. Every month at this time I become nervous. I try not to think about it. I try not to let every little "sign" get me excited at the possibility that I "might be" just to be let down again. I have been to the doctor, I have taken my temperature, I have peed on sticks of all kinds, and this month I even took medicine to try to help things out. So now I wait. I keep myself busy, I try not to think about it and I avoid going to the bathroom because I don't want to find out that it is over and that it all begins again. I also feel so bad about worrying about it because we have a beautiful family- much more than we deserve. We have been blessed with one healthy child, which is what many people dream of, but I am longing to be a mother again. I want my baby boy to grow up with siblings. I love being a mommy and I want to share this life with more children and each month that that does not happen honestly breaks my heart. I feel like I have more love to give and that I will get to do it all again, but I am not sure when it is going to happen. I know it is all part of a plan much greater than mine, I just hope that I have made my wishes known. I am not sure how to even begin to ask for more than we already have without sounding ungrateful or greedy. We are truly blessed beyond measure and for that I am forever grateful, but I just think there is more in store for us and I hope that more children are in our future and that I keep in good spirits as we wait for our good news that will come in HIS time. Until then, I will keep tracking, waiting, praying, preparing, giving thanks and loving all that I have been given.

  • It is now 10:30 pm. and there is still no snow. WE MIGHT HAVE SCHOOL AFTER ALL.

  • Yesterday we got to shower my dear friend Chandra with gifts for her soon to be born baby girl!! Clark came along for the ride because he saw the present in the car and asked who it was for. I told him baby Rosie and from there he was bound and determined to go to "Rosie's party". Well, to Rosie's party he went. He might have drug Legos all over the place,eaten nearly all of the strawberries from the adorable fruit arrangement, caught his plate on fire on the candle at our table (yes- that happened), colored Mickey pictures for all the ladies, and tried with all he had to open every gift. I am pretty sure after yesterday Chandra is sooooooo glad she is having a girl. ha! Besides chasing him everywhere, it was great to see everyone and catch up, all the while celebrating this beautiful child whom we all can't wait to meet.

    The proud parents to be!

    Don't I have cute friends??
    It is now nearly 11:00 and I am headed to bed. I am sure I will check the weather report before I fall asleep and I will not let my feet hit the floor in the morning with out checking my phone for the NO SCHOOL text from my friends at LEX18 first.
    Told ya' it was going to be random!
    Happy Monday!!


  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog for Top 2 on Tuesday. I am in the same situation as you are, trying to get pregnant. I know the feeling each month, not wanting to get too excited, but you just can't help yourself. I hope you get a positive pregnancy test soon!

  2. Awww, Abby, I didn't know you guys were trying to have another baby. I will definitely add that to a list of things to pray for. Although it may not appear that way, I do know that feeling of hoping, only to find out otherwise. Praying a new baby comes to the Snyder family soon!

  3. Certainly not TMI. It gives me something specific I can be praying for. I bet Clark will be an awesome big brother; hope it happen soon!

  4. I have been praying for you for some time now. I hope you don't have to wait much longer!

    ps..I would love to get together soon!
