Feeling alone

I needed to write this for me.
Most people don't know this but Glenn and I are ready for a family.
Its been difficult for us. Its been harder on me for obvious reasons. 
He doesn't think we need to worry about it... it'll happen eventually...etc
I always thought I didn't want kids. Until the day I turned 27.
It was kinda like a switch, I all of a sudden needed a family. 
I think it freaked out Glenn a little because it was so night and day of a switch.
Now I am 29 and still no kids, and I guess its a little silly but I'm stressing out about it.
I know, that doesn't help. 

The hardest part is I don't feel like any of my friends, or anyone I know is having problems getting pregnant. 
In fact, I think I'm the last one of every single married person I know to have gotten pregnant. 
Its so frustrating. Its also hard when I don't have any support here with this issue.

I don't think certain people understand how difficult it is to get pregnant. I've come across people who don't understand why its been taking so long for us. Honestly I'm not sure why either. 
Its very disheartening. Especially in my life, people around me are getting knocked up without even trying.
"Surprise... I wasn't ready for that."
It seems to always happen that way. 
   Its not fair. 
and I feel like I'm running out of time.

We bought a house!

So I'm a little behind since I just started writing again.  
In April this year we bought our first house.
Its blue, just like my parents first house and we love it!
It did need a lot of work since we bought a HUD property. 
Everyone asks us where the front door is. 
But in Colorado its more common to have the garage in front then the door.

Here are the before pictures: 

our master bedroom before
Its awful isn't it?
the kitchen
which didn't come with appliances that worked. 

and the staircase that I despised from the beginning. and the awful ceiling fan in the dining room

and the basement, which was finished but very dirty.

These are the after pictures
i know this is a bad picture, but the basement looks so much better
still don't love the wood staircase, but its a good enough face lift for now
the new and improved master (minus that one wall... we were waiting on new windows.
I'll have to take an updated picture of the house now that we are all settled in

It was a lot of work, and we did most of it ourselves.
We got rid of the popcorn ceilings.
My mom and I painted.
We got new carpet and appliances. 
New windows in the Master Bedroom.
My dad redid the wiring in the kitchen because he found illegal wiring in the wall.
( no wonder the microwave didn't work )
my dad renovated our guest bathroom too. 

I love this house <3
