Hey guys. I know I have been so lost but I have been going through some tough moments personally but I am back in the game and I’m going to give this blogging thing another chance. So much has been going on with me that it may take days to fully tell all of you everything, but i will summarize it and if anyone has any questions just reach out to me.
Back in March, I found out I had had a miscarriage, the dr said the baby was just 2 or 3 weeks in but it didnt hold so the miscarriage happened. This was a devastating shock to say the least because we have been trying for over 6 months now and since I already gave birth to one child I kept thinking it was going to be the easiest thing to get pregnant and stay pregnant again, but boy was I wrong.
I have never mentioned it here but I have hypothyroidism and because of that it is much harder to get pregnant. A lot of women even suffer from infertility because of it. And even though I have been getting my thyroid checked regularly it is still not fully controlled so all we can do is keep trying and all I can do is continue to take care of myself as much as I can.
At the end of March my husband went to California for work for a week, so my girl and I went to visit my sister in Miami and then my mom in North Carolina. Those trips really helped me getting my spirits back up after the loss we had.
April was a month full of running around in the house, with us giving our families the first Easter dinner in our home. It was a great time filled with love and our families. Also, the Easter bunny was very generous with Kim this year.
I also became a Permanent Resident in this country and that was definitely the greatest news and accomplishment so far this year. It is something that unless you are an immigrant you cant really appreciate. This is the first time that (God willing) I will be going back to Perú, my country of origin after 24 years! I came here with my parents when I was only 11. And for many complicated reasons we stayed and made a life here. It has been tough for our family with everything that is happening now with immigration but all I can say is that I am a proud immigrant who worked hard and paid all her taxes in time and now is a permanent resident who cant wait to become a citizen so I can vote and go on jury duty. 🙂
May came and we also did a lot of running around. We went to visit my husband’s fraternity brother and his family and oh my, do they have the cutest little boy. He is only 3 months and my daughter loved being with him, which is a good sign she might be ready for a sibling. We also went to visit my mom for Mother’s day and even though it was amazing to spend this day with her it was also very sad because her father in law passed away on Saturday morning. He was 84 years old and suffered from Alzheimers and once his whole mind was gone his other organs started failing and that is what caused his dead. My mom was devastated because she loved both her inlaws, they were the sweetest people we have met, and her mother in law passed last year and now her father in law. Its been, like i say a very bittersweet month.
But the rest of the year is here and Im here to not let anything or anyone bring me down. If anyone feels like dragging me down they are being cut from my life because all I want to do is appreciate and enjoy every moment im living with my loved ones. Life is too short for everything else. Soo I will now go grab a glass of wine and have some cheesecake.
Have a great night everyone. Remember. Life is what YOU make of it. Make it worth your memories. Xoxo
