I can't believe I've gone almost a month without writing. I've basically been in a holding pattern as far as my next step. I have to wait until the end of October for myFET. I only have one egg to thaw and transfer, so I'm not getting my hopes up.
The new school year has started and I am in love with my new students. As you may recall, I moved back to teaching another grade. I am so glad I made this decision. I forgot how cute this age could be! On the down side, I made it a whole 5 days before I came down with a terrible cold. I felt so bad, even my skin hurt. I had shingles last year and this was similar to that pain. Naturally, the day this hit was my birthday. I celebrated by going straight home and going to bed. It was around this time that I heard the wonderful news that Nicole Ri.che is pg. I can't express how happy I am for her. Oh, and a middle school student at the nearby school is also pg. I feel like standing outside the school with sign saying "will work/pay for baby." Happy thoughts abound. My students were too cute, though. They asked me several times if I was ok. I'm sure the sight of their new teacher blowing/honking her nose every 20 seconds for a week straight was a little strange.
Well, I'm off to grade the never-ending mountain of papers . . .
