If you read my last post about my therapy session with Dr. G, you would know I am trying to live through my grief by actively coping. Basically, this equates to living my life as happily as I can while still stuck in the thros of IVF and RPL.
Thursday kicked off my weekend since Friday was a teacher workday. Anyone who teaches knows that the days without the children are pretty much considered days off. This being said, I went out with an old friend for dinner and drinks Thursday night. I hadnt seen her in several months so it was nice to catch up and have some laughs.
Although Friday was a day without students, it still ended up being a whirlwind of a day. I had to attend professional development, get grades and comments done for report cards, and decorate my door for Red Ribbon Week (drug prevention program). I ended up working from 7:45 until 6:15. Long day, but got what I needed to accomplished.
Saturday I woke up and started grading college work for the online class I teach. Of course, grades are due for both of my jobs at the same time. After getting most of it done, and running some errands, I took a break and hit the pool with a friend for a few hours. So relaxing!
Later, it was time to hit the 8th Annual Halloween party we attend each year. Hubs and I had originally planned to go as clowns, but made a switch at the last minute. I guess you could say we were rocking a “western theme.” The party was a blast! The decorations, food, games, and people were all amazing.
Today, I woke up feeling quite exhausted from being on the run for 3 days. It still didnt stop though! My friend and I planned to attend a craft show in a cute part of town. We browsed and had lunch, both feeling a little rough from the late night before. Look at what I got, adorable…
Eventually, I came home, finalized the college course grades, and did some house work. Not much house work might I add. My husband is off Tuesday and he said he will take care of it then…thank God! I am beat and its back to the grind tomorrow. Not only is it of the start of Quarter 2 at school, but a new college course I am teaching starts up this week. Ugh.
Oh, and how could I forget to tell you that none other than my lovely period graced me with her presence today…4 DAYS LATE. Im never late, but knew better than to think I could be pregnant, especially when not even trying (thats what happens to normal couples lol). So, I just took a bubble bath, some motrin, and put on the heating pad.
I do have some upbeat, positive fertility news to share sometime this week. Stay tuned!
