About Me

(Allie & Harris) Wife, teacher, patient, thinker, friend, worrier, planner, seeker. These are the hats I wear on a daily basis for the roles in my life. Harris and I've been married since 1999 and we have two fur babies of the feline sort. We have a pretty good life, all things considered. But, it's not complete. Seven years ago I received a diagnosis of PCOS, a condition which has taken a toll on both my body and soul. It will not beat me though and we will be parents.

Still here...

Just dropping a line to let everyone know we're still alive.  Hurricane Irene messed up our roof and we were out of power for 4 days.  We lost all of our food in the fridge and freezer, but we're still so much luckier than others in our area.  The Governor is working to have our town declared a disaster area so we can get funding from FEMA to help with the damage and clean-up here.  We're still waiting to hear back from the insurance company 8 days later...urgh.  I called again today and verified that we were on the list - just not the top of the list.

Quick update on the IUI and process to parenthood.  Harris and I did brave the storm to have the IUI.  We've got one more week in the 2WW and we'll be able to make some real commitments afterwards. 

I am still working to catch up on the latest postings.  Jill and Alex, congrats!  Kerri and Mark, I'm surprised you're not on your way home yet, but kudos on the super cute outfits you've found over there for the baby!

Hope everyone has a great week!


  1. I know what your going through! When our house flooded we waited on hold for the Insurance Co. 6.5 hours as our house was unliveable and rang them daily to ask them to come an assess the damage to see if we were covered. It took them 2 weeks to come out, so frustrating and scary as you wonder if they are going to cover you or not!! Thank goodness we were covered but it still is upsetting and hard work to recover!! Best wishes for both your house and the 2ww. Take care!!

  2. Glad you survived Irene (my mother in laws name). It sucks that you had house damage, sorry to hear that.
    The Canadian exit process is somewhat lengthy compared to the US. We are now starting to get close...
