I swear it's one thing after another this week. Tonight my husband told me that some of his family members were coming into town because his cousin just had a baby (of course) and wanted to show all of the family their new edition. I was very open to going even though I new it would be difficult seeing the baby when I want one of my own so badly. Even though it hurts, I am still very excited for them. Anyway, we are at dinner and my MIL was holding the baby (she has no grandchildren as of right now). She then pipes up and says, "You need to let Emily (me) hold the baby so she can get over this baby fever that she has". Wow! Rude! Especially when I just miscarried a little less than 4 months ago. Why do people just not get it??? Are they really THAT ignorant??? I just wanted to crawl under the table and have an emotional meltdown right then and there. However, I somehow pulled myself together, held the beautiful baby boy, and tried to enjoy the time I had with this baby even though I do not have one of my own. I wanted so badly to have a discussion with her afterward to let her know that I did not appreciate the rude comment, but I don't know how to approach her nicely. I don't want to upset her, but I'm sick of people being able to upset me all of the time. They need to learn to think before they speak! Any suggestions?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
