love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
aunt flo came on in the wee hours of the morning. she decided to welcome me with some serious cramping, nausea, and diarrhea. gotta love it. i’m telling myself that she wants to go out with a bang because this will be the last time i see her for at least 9 months. after my many trips to the bathroom (and it’s just 8 am here), the heating pad and my wife’s tea are finally doing the trick. in a little while, i’ll call the RE to let him know i started and to schedule my ultrasound and bloodwork for day 3. i must admit– i’m excited.
my plans today consist of finishing our school schedule, changing student rosters, then running up to the school to make copies for my kids and all the teachers. me and another teacher that came to this school together from another school have been given the charge to overhaul our school schedule because, frankly, the other one was NOT working. so we had subs in our rooms all day friday and worked on it from about 8:30 am to 8 pm with a 45 minute lunch break in there. we have been texting each other like mad this weekend to fix schedule conflicts and assign duties to more teachers. honestly, i cannot wait to be an administrator (i know that sounds weird) so i can do stuff like this all the time.
so that’s it for me. i feel like AF is washing away all the past failed inseminations and hopefully my pessimism too. i pray that this is a cleansing.
a long overdue affirmation: each setback presents an opportunity for cleansing.
eta: i calculated that if this is *the* cycle, then the baby will due between A’s birthday and our anniversary. such divine order.
