Take Two

I started my first double dose of F.emara. The cramps were pretty painful last month -- Dr. T said that it was the F.emara that made the symptoms worse, having ovaries working double time this month is going to be interesting!

I spent much of the evening unconscious on the couch. I can't remember the last time I slept for THREE hours after school! I was up pretty late last night watching men's figure skating! I guess I have to work harder on my Lenten promise to be in bed by 10pm!

Today was a nice day at school. We had an Ash Wednesday liturgy and I helped give ashes to the children. My class was so cute. We talked about the various sacrifices we were going to make for the next 40 days and they're suggestions were so cute! One of them said that they were going to do their homework and I said, "Well you should you be doing that every night! I don't know if that counts as a Lenten promise!"

I wish all of you a blessed Lenten season!


  1. Hugs and warm wishes for renewal!

  2. Maybe the student meant he would do his homework with a willing heart :). He probably fights his parents on it every day...
    Hope the F.emara isn't too hard on you this month!

  3. My favorite kid response a few year ago was that she was giving up Ketchup. Maybe that was a HUGE sacrifice to her, but it cracked me up.

    Blessed season to you, too.

  4. Hormones wack me out, too. May this be the month!!

    I attended the school mass and one of the kids said that he would give up school but our paster said he wasn't allowed!
