I can almost smell the beach!
After a long, cold winter (which I'm sure will give us at least one more blast before spring, I do live in Canada after all!) Mr. JB and I are leaving for the D.ominican Re.public on Saturday. We've never gone to an all-inclusive resort before, but I think it is exactly what I need to get myself back on track.
I realize that most working people have only a few weeks of vacation per year and I admire each and every one of you that do, but since working most of last summer I am exhausted! I was wondering why I was feeling so miserable and I know it's because I haven't had a proper break. I'm trying not to worry about what we could've used the money that we spent on (hmm, like the kitchen renovation we want to do, or perhaps replacing the gross carpet we have upstairs...) and I'm trying to focus on appreciating the fact that we are going to go somewhere where the main focus is doing nothing.
I know that it may not come as a surprise, but I'm not good at doing nothing.
I have quite a few books, my i.Pod loaded with music and quite the sleep debt that I need to take care of, so at least I have some "projects" while I soak in that vitamin D!
I'm so glad that we're going away early on in the Lenten season. I already have visions of myself getting some good prayer time while taking walks on the beach. There's also a fitness facility where I'm sure I will get some good praying done while on the Stair.Master (yes, I love that machine, am I strange?).
I could feel my mood lifting today and I could sense my class was calmer because I wasn't acting all stressed out. After the craziness of last week the kids have remembered how to behave and we had no visits with the principal. I'm hoping that we can cruise to the end of June with good behaviour!
And now for my question: I knew that I couldn't leave IF at home and I will have to do my HCG injections while we're away. My body cooperated by Peaking a little later (gotta love late ovulation!) and it will be Peak +3 on Saturday. I'm thinking that I'm going to wait until P +4 to start the injections since I don't want to travel with an open vial of medication.
I have never traveled with syringes before and I'm a little concerned about what will happen when we go through the checks at the airport. I'm already picturing my bag being checked thoroughly and having to explain that I'm infertile and that's why I have the drug paraphernalia. I definitely don't want to put the HCG in my suitcase just in case my luggage gets lost. Do any of you have any advice? Should I bring my prescription or will the labeled box of HCG be enough?
Thanks in advance!
