Every Lenten season I look forward to Holy Thursday. Don't worry, it's not because I get to indulge in what I gave up for Lent, but because of the Stations of the Cross. When I taught the older kids my class always did a presentation for the school, this year each teacher got to read for a station with one student from their class. I got to start things off with one of my little cuties and I can say that it was much less stressful just being a part of the presentation and not organizing it.
I was also in charge of selling pretzels to raise money for S.harelife (a charity of the Archdiocese of To.ronto). I sold 334 pretzels which means that we are donating the same amount to the charity. There was a bit of an issue because the bakery didn't deliver enough, but the driver returned with the pretzels we were missing so everyone got their treat.
So Mr. JB, his dad and I are off to Montreal tomorrow morning to celebrate Easter with my brother-in-law. It's bittersweet since this will be our last Easter with my BIL 'cos he's returning to Italy to finish his degree in Canon law in Rome. He also expects to spend at least a year in either Asia or India afterwards. Although I'm used to him being gone, I really love that he's been so close (well at least in the same country!). As Mr. JB's dad gets older I know that he appreciates having both of his sons in close proximity and I definitely love having my BIL's calming influence around!
I will continue to pray for all of you, especially my Lenten prayer buddy. This truly is my favourite time of year and I can't wait for mass on Easter Sunday!
p.s. I haven't dealt with calling my friend. I have been so busy with school and last night when I got home from work I feel dead asleep on the couch! I know that I have to at least send her an e-mail, but that's not happening until Tuesday, at the earliest.
p.p.s. I've had some crazy fertile CM! I almost didn't believe my eyes since I'm already at CD 16 and it only started yesterday. I ovulated on CD 14 last cycle on the increased dose of F.emara and I expected the same this cycle, but it's been totally different. I really hope that I don't have to start my HCG injections while we're in Montreal. It would totally stress me out to have to transport it home while driving for five hours!
p.p.p.s. I'm going on the yoga jeans adventure on Saturday. I really hope that they're all that I've made them out to be. I can't wait to try them on!!!
