love, life, and the pursuit of liberation
It’s back! (At least for this week)
My mind has been all over the place, mostly due to Lu.pron (at least that’s what I’m going to blame). It’s been very difficult for me to write down my thoughts in a cohesive fashion. But today, I’m feeling led to write down my appreciations. If you’re new to my blog, check out the category “Monday Appreciation” to see what this is all about.
Today, I’m appreciative
1- To be able to try IVF again and afford COBRA (for now). Despite the emotional rollercoaster, this is such a blessing.
2- To have had my Lu.pron dosage go down because whew lawd, those weeks were HARD.
3- To have a job I love. I love that each day is different, I get to talk to work with schools and leaders around a subject I’m passionate about– student achievement. I love the flexibility and not stressing about going to morning monitoring appointments. I get to set my own schedule with schools. I get to use zipcar on the days when I don’t want to deal with NYC MTA. Oh, and I work from home (for now), except when I have meetings at schools. The only downside– shopping during marathon conference calls 😉
4- Friends that let me vent and take impromptu vacations. Yall know who you are.
5- Twitter! I know it sounds crazy but I really love this vehicle to connect with so many awesome people.
6- Therapy! And the lives it touches 🙂
7- The number 1 and 11. They are my favorite.
8- The summer. Despite the horrendous heatwave (Friday, my zipcar thermometer reached 114. Yikes!), I live for the summer. I’ll take 114 over blizzards any day.
9- My awesome daughter. I know I don’t blog much here about parenting but she truly is my everything. That little girl keeps me cracking up AND growing in ways I didnt’ know possible.
That’s it for now. There are so many other things but I’m forcing myself to work before my meetings today.
