My name is Elisabet and I have been blogging since 2001.  This blog gets it’s name from “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana.  I have always loved that line in the song, it reminds me of the close bond that I have with my friends. 

I’m closer to fourty than thirty now. I find it really hard to accept myself at this age.  I still do the same things as I did when I was in my twenties, except that I have a mortgage now and no longer need to crash on anyone’s couch.  Even though my friends have kids and grown up lives, I still see them as they were in their twenties and no one has wrinkles.

My husband and I are struggling with infertility, something I never thought I would experience. After twelve years of nothing, I got pregnant twice only to loose them each at six weeks. I’m not ok with it one bit. I have always seen my future with children. Until I reach fourty we’ll keep trying, I don’t have much time left.

I may cry and talk about unpleasant woman issues on this blog. My husband hates this. I see it as a way to be open about myself and my everyday life. I’m not the only one in the world going through this and I’m sure someone out there can relate.

One more thing, GO TEAM EDWARD!
