I am so ready for the long weekend. My classroom is set-up, the first day is planned and I have met with my department; I am finally feeling organized for school. My first impressions so far are positive and so I am really hoping that it will be an all around great year. I even decided to take a course in the fall and I am excited to get back into learning mode again. Professionally things are falling into place. Phew. (I will admit that after last year, I was almost ready to consider switching professions and now I am so glad that I just stuck it out.)

Personally, things may be going well too. I think I may be getting my period as we speak (sorry for the TMI). I have a call into my nurse for her to get working on my calendar based on a CD1 of tomorrow and I am so excited/anxious to get this ball rolling. My first choice is to do a late September transfer, but that is only four weeks from now so it may not be possible, but I am going to hope for that.

This weekend I am going to relax and pamper myself. I deserve it after all the long hours I have put over the last two weeks at work. A. and I are going up north for the weekend and we are going to get massages here. We also have a family wedding (we go to a lot of weddings) on Sunday and then we will come back to reality on Monday for the start of school on Tuesday.

I think I may be in a good place emotionally too which is so relieving to say. This summer sucked and I am glad it is over.



  1. Sounds like you have an awesome weekend planned. I hope you enjoy all of it. I've been meaning to go to Le Scandinave for a long time, but I never get to it. I think your post just motivated me to get my butt up there.
    Can't wait to hear how the first day of school goes.

  2. Good luck with the school year, so glad everything seems to be working out so well there. Also so happy you're in such a good place emotionally!! Have a great long weekend and enjoy the massages! :)

  3. You DO go to a lot of weddings! I hope you have a great relaxing weekend--you are right, you have been working super hard. Enjoy those massages!

  4. Whoa, ball rolling. Yes, rest up since your mind will be racing.

    I think this was the longest summer on the planet. My favorite and my least at the same time. Stick it, summer 2010.

  5. Yay! I am so glad to hear that things are looking good for the new school year. I am starting to feel my groove, and being back to work has been a true blessing for me.

    Have a great weekend, R. Hope you are able to get the ball rolling with the FET prep.

  6. I'm so glad that things got taken care of at school and that you're ready for the new year to begin. Plus, fabulous plans for a massage. The place looks heavenly!

  7. there's nothing like a new set-up, clean and fresh classroom to make you feel that all-over ready to start again (i know, i'm a teacher myself!)

    here's looking to the future & to new and exciting times ahead!

  8. So glad to hear that you are in a better place. Have a FABULOUS weekend!

  9. Glad you are having better thoughts! Weddings = free food and drink, and usually good music. I don't think September will work out as they usually put you on birth control pills for at least a month. But, I may be wrong.


  10. wow a sept transfer! so exciting ;)
    im so glad to see that you are a little refreshed and looking forward. its so easy to dwell on everything. im so sorry that its getting harder to see your sis with that belly. just think of all the hand me downs and money you'll save! its expensive in CA!
    i know that doesnt make it better but we just have to keep moving forward, right? im so hoping we get to go through pregnancy together.

  11. Yay! Enjoy the weekend, and those massages. Sounds lovely.

  12. Things are definitely looking up for you! I'm actually glad the summer is over too. And a September, or even early October, transfer would be great. You'd actually have better timing for your due date, in that you could probably make it all the way through the school year (I'm always thinking about those things...)

  13. Have a wonderful weekend treating yourself:) Yay for CD1 and one step closer to transfer!!!
