Day One

So it wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.

The morning was a bit chaotic and I lost some kids from the gym (where we convened for our opening day paraliturgy -- I LOVE teaching at a Catholic school!) and I had to send some reliable kids to gather my stragglers. I thought that teaching grade two would make the first day a little smoother, but I was wrong. One of my kids ended up in completely the wrong class and the principal had to deliver her to my door! Poor little thing, a new school AND she had no idea where to go!

I did get some sad news this morning. One of my best students has moved to Poland! Apparently her mother just couldn't adjust to life in Canada (after ten years!) and she decided to move her three kids back to the homeland. I heard through the grapevine that my little student is having the worst time adjusting and that she is so unhappy. The dad is still in the neighbourhood wrapping up loose ends and he said that he's going to join the family, but I'm a bit suspicious. Could you please say a prayer for little A? She was like a bright light in my class and I miss her terribly.

In cycle news: Today is Peak +2. I think that I did my trigger shot on the wrong day 'cos I had peak-type mucus after I did the shot. Mr. JB and I used all the fertile days plus Peak +1 so hopefully with the H.ydrocort my ladyparts are going to work!

I'm feeling so good on the H.ydrocort! I didn't have an energy dip at lunch and I felt completely human all day long. The only time that I feel tired is before I have to go to bed which is completely normal! I love this stuff!!!

Only 187 days to go. I hope that this year is a good one.


  1. I'm glad things are going well on the hc. I hope things are okay with the little girl in Poland - she sounds like such a sweet child. Sending prayers.

  2. Very Interesting!
    Thank You!

  3. I love crazy first day of school stories. I taught second grade for a year, and it is a funny age. I maintain that you could write a book on the secret lives of 8 year olds. :)
    I will pray for your former student, and you are in my prayers too! I pray that this cycle is the one!

  4. Have a great year! I bet you are going to love 2nd grade.

  5. It's REALLY common to see peak-type mucus after taking a shot of hCG. I know someone else just had this problem (Hebrews?).

    I'm glad the first day went well!

  6. Glad to hear you had a good first day! Happy that the hydrocort is working well, too!

  7. I promise getting into a routine again is much easier once it gets started. I'm so into my routine now and it is the 3rd week. Good luck with things:) Glad to hear about the hc!

  8. So happy to hear about your good first day!! And, I am praying for a great cycle! :) :)

    (And praying for the little girl in Poland.)
