what i know
Well let me be the first to say Happy Valentine’s Day a week late.
Seriously, life as teacher gets so busy that days run into weeks and then weeks into months and then I am left looking at a calendar wondering how on earth it could possibly be February. And mid-to-late February to boot!
But, I hope you all a terrific day filled with whatever makes you the happiest.
Things are good. I got sick back at the end of January and I am still fighting it. I work in germ factory. Just when I am starting to feel better some cutie pie wraps his/her arms around me and promptly sneezes spraying me with all kinds of germs. Soap, Purell and Clorox have become staple vocabulary words in my second grader’s repertoire.
The good news is that this week I feel like I am on an upswing. So keep your fingers crossed that no stray sneezes make their way onto me.
I found out a good friend of mine is pregnant. She is a sweet friend who also suffered a miscarriage trying to her have her first baby. I should be thrilled for her and I am! But I would also be lying if I told you that I didn’t shed some private tears at how badly I want what she has. I really have nothing to report on that front. Keith and I have seen the fertility specialist and are in the middle of the long and tedious process of testing. We are both having every conceivable test run and it is going to take a little bit longer to get all the information collected, sorted and dealt with. Sometimes I just feel like this is never going to happen. And then other times I feel like I should be cherishing this incredible time I have with Keith because it won’t always be just the two of us.
I sometimes think my heart and my brain aren’t on speaking terms, as they constantly contradict on another. What can I say, it’s hard. And it stinks. That pretty much sums it up.
In other news, on the recommendation from a coworker I downloaded and read Delirium. DANG! I am hooked. I love a good book and, even more, trilogies! I’ve already downloaded book 2 and pre-ordered book 3. Did I mention that I liked it? I also finished my book on tape, Water For Elephants. So good yet so sad. I have heard differing opinions about the movie so I doubt I will see it. I hate it when a movie ruins a good book for me.
And other than that, you are caught up. Could I possibly be any more pathetic?! ha! Teaching, Reading, Fertility…and that would be my life.
