Yesterday one of the duplexes in base housing burnt to the ground. Luckily no person was hurt although some pets did lose their lives. Apparently the fire began in the garages of one house when the people were gone, then rapidly spread through the duplex, and was unable to be contained in any measure. Luckily none of the surrounding houses were affected. This just breaks my heart. Could you imagine losing everything that you own, at a base far from home and family, and then to know your pets suffered and died because of it? So devastating.
I feel like this puts things in a bit more perspective. Things could always be worse. They could always get worse. And right now, sure we don’t have a child, but we do have so much more to be thankful for.
I am thankful for so much. I also feel like I have reentered that teeny bopper hormonal roller coaster. I have developed a bizarre case of acne, not crazy, but more than I was expecting. I am also extremely touchy emotionally and have had the urge to encourage all and out brawls with the Hub. Yesterday it was about taxes. Speaking of which, we have paid a ridiculous sum in taxes and related fees and will only just break even. That makes me so angry. Not only do I owe a significant sum for student loans, I would also love to use some of cash to fund our treatments…just saying.
I was not this affected by those progesterone suppositories/ovidrel/letrozole last time around, but I also gradually had more side-effects with clomid so I guess it’s not that shocking. I am definitely remembering why I hated puberty so much. Cause, whoa. I am always surprised that any of us managed to escape our teens at all. Men truly have no idea what they are missing. Lucky punks.
At least Miss Layla is enjoying her life in the sun =) Such a pretty girl.
