love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
this morning i walked into school and quickly noticed that it was dark. not because of the amazing thunder and lightening we’ve been having, but because that awesomeness knocked out the power in about 75% of the school. was school cancelled?? of course not! we herded the children into the few rooms that had power. guess which category i fell into? so i had 82 7th graders in my classroom (i have a very large room) and we watched “the pursuit of happyness” for the first couple of hours. by lunchtime, power was restored in half of the building, so i’m back on normal schedule.
another interesting phenomena. soar boobs. i swear since i’ve stopped ttc, i havent had (or noticed) sore breasts prior to my period. but this weekend, they hit me like a truck. i even caught sight of myself in the mirror and wondered if i needed to get a new bra size for this lovely time of the month. of course, that brought all the memories of ttc. it’s hard to believe that a year ago, i was so eagerly preparing just KNOWING that it was going to be a breeze. *buzzzzzzzz* wrong! we do have our little miracle, little A (and i know some in blogland will probably think that’s enough), but now i can’t wait to have little bambino (yes i named him already) to make it complete. i’m thinking that i’m going to start in the fall and will be going immediately to ivf. i will be lying if i said that i wasn’t terrified. i do hope that emotionally it will be easier because i’m in a different place, but we shall see what happens.
aside: i’m thinking for my next 30 day challenge, i will drink at least 4 glasses of water daily (yes that is a challenge for me), as well as meditate. these 30 day challenges have really been helpful for me and i keep them up for the most part. so i’ll let yall know (does anyone even still read??) how it goes.
