Chugging on

We've been preapproved for our loan that we'll use for our IVF. It amazes me that we are borrowing this amount of money in order to get pregnant. But a friend told me "You pay more than that for a car, and that' s just a CAR."

That's a good point! A car is nothing in comparison.

There's been stress at school....what's new? While I've decided not to be walked all over, I'm also not going to push something just to make a point. It's not worth it in the long run. My principal backs me and that's all that matters. If the secretary doesn't like me, that's her problem. I'm not going to make it much of mine.

Boo is doing well at school for now. I emailed his teacher yesterday and she reports that he's making progress. He's making an effort in his journal. (Let's not go into what I think about requiring a FOUR YEAR OLD to journal!)

So I'm chugging on. Hopefully I'll have updates on my cycle soon.

Show and Tell

This is what I did this weekend! I haven't scrapbooked since Boo was 9 months old! I attended Croptoberfest on Saturday with a friend because I knew how very far behind I was. I finished 12 pages AND a calendar! I am so glad I went.

What was really neat was that Boo and Daddy and I read Boo's scrapbook before he went to bed. He really liked pointing out things in the pictures. He loved the pictures of himself in the hospital too. What a sweetie!

It's Official!!

We recieved our letter today telling us that we've qualified for the Shared Risk program!

This is great news for us. Now we just need to get our loan paperwork rolling.

It's funny how things work out isn't it? On my message board group, we've had a rash of unexpected pregnancy announcements. Several of these women are now on their second child since I've been trying...it was getting to be pretty depressing.

But it is beginning to look up around here!

When we left our heroine

She was busy with birthdays.

Since then, lots has happened, so here's a quick recap...

AF showed last friday (boo!)

I went for my U/S to check follicles. I needed 12, I had EXACTLY 12! (yes!)

I've gotten notes home from school about Boo. Let me count them....btwn notes, emails and phone calls, that makes 7 in the last 3 weeks. One good, the rest not so much.

He doesn't like to draw, color or cut. He is now refusing to do so. So they are sending his work to the after school program he attends. He tells me he doesnt' know why he doesn't do them, but if pushed he says it's too hard.

It came to a head last night. I mean for Goodness Sake, he's FOUR! He just turned four, and they are punishing him for not COLORING! SIGH....

I talked with his teacher on the phone today. While I don't agree with her emphasis on this, as he's following all other directions, I am going to give it a bit more time. She's going to give immediate feedback for success. (he earned a prize for writing in his notebook today) I insisted he get an OT referral.

He has 4 days off, so that will be a nice break.

I have more to write on this....but I need to gather my thoughts first. Right now though, I'm going to relish the fact that we are going to Chicago this weekend as a family!
