I began my TTC journey in January 2005. It finally worked with the 5th IUI and along came Eliana! I started trying for a second (T42) a little over a year later, and was thrilled to get pregnant on the second try this time. Jacob soon joined our family! Not sure if I am done at two, but come along for my journey in motherhood. If you stop by, please leave me a short note! I like to know when I have visitors. :)

Is it Sunday?

So, yesterday I had some horrendous cramping while teaching. It kind of tamed down a bit by the time I got home, but I figured since I was so tired and still a bit crampy, that I would take an Aleve and head to bed.

Oh yeah, I sure slept...

And slept, and slept...right THROUGH my alarm, until 8 am!!!! Now, I usually get up at 5 am and am at school at 6:15, but I HAVE to be at school by 6:50...

I looked at the clock and my first thought was "oh good, it's Sunday, I need to get up if I am going to make it to church...", and then just as quickly I realized, HOLY COW, it is NOT Sunday and school has started!!!

I was so freaked out. I ran into the living room, grabbed the phone, and tried to call the school, but I don't know the number to talk to the office, and can only think of Jan's number, so I call her and tell her I am coming and can she please call the office. I got dressed, fed the cats (why didnt they wake me up??? they usually do....but then again, so does the alarm usually wake me up...), grabbed a Costco muffin to eat on the way (thank goodness I went to Costco Monday night to pick up my Clomid), and ran out the door.

I felt so sick to my stomach the whole way...I mean, of all the times to sleep in, it had to be during these three weeks when I am doing my ESL internship!!! As soon as I got to class (just before 2nd period starts...and first period is my planning period so I didn't get any pay docked...that was lucky), I called the teacher I am teaching with for my internship and she was very understanding...but still. I am still so embarassed,...and now of course I have to extend my internship one more day into a fourth week which kind of sucks...

Oh man. What a day.

I'm amazed your school starts so early. Is this common in the Seattle area? If so, what is the rationale? The schools around here (Ontario, Canada) all start sometime after 8:30.

Thanks, girls. Yes I am feeling better, and even made it to school on time this morning;)

Rae, I was absolutely amazed myself when I moved here from makes no sense to me. We have had two votes as a staff to change our starting time to one hour later (we currently start at 7:05), but both have failed. I don't know if this is the same everywhere, but the high schools in my school district all start rather early, and the elementaries at a normal time...makes no sense at all if you ask me.

Ugh, nothing worse than a late late start. Rushing around and getting somewhere late when you are normally on time.

Our schools start early, dajah has to catch the bus at 6:30a and has to be at school at 7:05 even if we drive her. Middle school starts later, then the elementary schools. Everyone uses the same buses since cost cutting and lack of bus drivers is a problem.

I find I have to swap alarm clocks every year to keep getting up on time. I never had that problem in my youth, lol.
