Wake me up when September ends...

I really have nothing new and exciting to write about in terms of IVF.  I'm waiting for my period to come soon- hopefully early next week- so that I can start the birth control pills.  Then it is more waiting until early October to start everything else.  I am looking forward to getting my calendar and getting organized once I get my period.

School has been so hectic.  I've been there from 7 am until 5 or 5:30 pm each day and could still spend hours working at home.  I'm exhausted from that.  I'm just hoping that things calm down big time before October rolls around.  My class in interesting so far.  I have 22 lovely 6th graders- 10 boys, 11 girls.  I teach at an inner city school so there is always cultural differences to contend with.  This group seems much less mature (street wise) as last year's crew.  It's a good and a bad thing.  Hopefully it will be mean a lot less drama and a lot more good days.  I know most teachers cringe at the thought of kids at this age but I actually really enjoy it.  You can talk with them and do a lot of fun things for lessons but they are still kids at heart.  We'll see how things are looking in another month or so!


  1. I am excited for you to start your next cycle!!
    And I so feel you on the school thing!! I have stayed late everyday this week also. I now have 22 kinders 14 boys, 8 girls. It's funny I always say I would never set foot in a middle school...I wonder if you would say the same about K! Each grade has it's fun points though...I love 4th graders too!! I hope the being less street wise ends up being a good thing!! Enjoy your long more day!

  2. I love that alot of our posts have the same tone to them and that we both love the same kind of song lyrics:) It is just so reassuring to know that other women are feeling and going through the same emotions that I am! Come on October!!
