We've been listening to Queen's Greatest Hits on continual play for the last few weeks because my son is in a Freddy Mercury stage. I finally escaped Queen for a few hours today to go see Blades of Glory. Only to hear the pounding beat of "Flash Gordon" as Will Ferrell skated for the gold.
A huge thank you to everyone who voted for me for the Best of Blog Awards. If you've never read the other blogs in the category, you should head over to them right now and begin reading. There's Omega Mom, who is this brilliant adoption blogger who has been doing an amazing series of posts for the past few days. And Open Window, another adoption blog that I read hungrily and feel honoured to be invited into that world via her blog. And I Wasted All That Birth Control which makes me laugh and cry on a weekly basis. The Fertility Blog, a website on natural fertility. The Karen Road Chronicles, who writes beautifully about life in general and fertility and her son. Lastly, Serenity Now--a blog that has changed my infertility experience and made me feel less alone, less overwhelmed. She is a woman I feel honoured to walk beside on this journey.
I have been crying on and off all night for Snickollet. She lost her husband this week after a battle with pancreatic cancer. Emmie at Better Make it a Double created a candle for our blogs to virtually light for Snickollet. And even though it is too late, even though it really doesn't feel like enough, I wanted to send this out there to her and let her know that I'm thinking about her family tonight.
