Although I'm so glad that school is going to be done on the 26th I always feel strangely stressed out at this time of year. I guess this year end is bringing the sadness of leaving my school and my students as well as a move (that hopefully won't be too painful) to an unfamiliar situation, so I think that I have an excuse.
I broke the news to my class that I was leaving this morning and I ended up with kids breaking down and crying for most of the morning. One girl started and then they all seemed to start. I tried to explain to them that it was a good opportunity, but it's hard to reason with ten year olds. You see, I usually teach my class for two years in a row. In our Middle Immersion program that starts in grade five I teach the 5's in the morning and the 6's in the afternoon. The sixes didn't react too badly since I wasn't going to be their teacher anyway. I'm very proud of myself that I didn't cry along with the kiddies (something that I've done more than once), but I guess I should feel good that they were so upset. I really hope that they're nice to the new teacher....
So not only am I procrastinating -- I'm almost finished my report cards, but I just can't seem to compel myself to finish them! -- I'm absolutely exhausted. I'm feeling better with this round of progesterone troches (which I'm definitely getting in a different flavour next month, the "strawberry" flavouring is not tasty at all), but now I'm spotting again. I'm at Peak +9 today (I think 10 DPO, if I have my lingo right) and I was told that the progesterone would make my cycles longer. Alas, two months of progesterone and nothing has changed. Does anyone have any advice? I'm going to see my doc on Friday and hopefully she will have some advice, but I'm also scared that she's going to put me on antibiotics for a uterine infection (when I saw her in May she did a Pap test and my cervix started to bleed and she suspects that I have an infection, although I can't remember what it's called!). I'm just hoping that if I do have to take antibiotics that she can find one that I'm not allergic to since I'm allergic to all of the major ones.
I can't wait until July 11th. I am in serious need of a vacation!
Update: I just finished my report cards. Let's hope that my teaching partner finds some giddy up so she's done before Friday!!!! AND I also figured our GoogleReader. I think that I've found a way to read my favourite blogs at school! Woohoo!
