The month of January has not been a very pleasant one in my blogging past.
I started this blog in February of '07, so I missed out writing in January that year. But trust me, that may be my least favorite January in recent years: it was when we got our male factor diagnosis.
Then in January of '08, Mook and I hit a pretty rough patch in our relationship--we spent time in counseling and needed to regroup as a couple. There were some really dark days in that month, and I am very thankful we came out stronger because of it.
And of course last year, January of '09, I spent a majority of the time on my back--on hospital bed rest, praying that little Ron was going to be OK since I had started bleeding from my previa.
And I do realize, that all of these January's had a happy ending--I started blogging because of our MFI diagnosis, Mook and I became a stronger couple, and the O-man and I were getting exceptional care in the hospital.
But I would be lying if I said it has been so incredibly nice to have had a relatively low-key January of '10.
Mook and I were able to bid farewell to the month by enjoying a snowed in weekend at home alone together--the O-man had a visit planned with one set of grandparents, and it just happened to be when the great-blizzard-of-the-decade decided to descend upon us!
I love the O-man more than life itself, but I also love Mook--and we really enjoyed this weekend together--he's been traveling so much with work, that I actually got jittery when he came home--like those first-dating butterflies ;)
Last night, we took a walk around the neighborhood... it was so peaceful...no cars on the road, it was still snowing, and he stuck out his elbow for me to grab onto as we walked--and it was just like a great ending to a good book, as I took his arm and smiled at him....a perfect moment, indeed.
