A late Happy ICLW week....

I have had an insane past few days.  School is absolutely nuts with Open House (tomorrow night), assessments and retention hearings and meetings.  Parents who are difficult and not making good choices for their children's education....grr! I am going nuts!  This is the first time I have been able to get on here on my pc and I wish I could have been a more active participant in ICLW.  Ah, time!

To add to the craziness, I had a interesting and busy weekend.  Hubby and I decided we should indeed go the Pre Adopt class all day Saturday.  Luckily they let us join and we attended all day on Saturday.  I'm not admitting defeat on our upcoming FET but I do want to be prepared.  There is a lot to do and I want to take advantage of my time off this summer.  I'm still trying to think of the finances in my head so once I decide there we will proceed.  I just know I will be upset with myself if we didn't start any of this and are disappointed with our transfers.  This has been a tricky decision.  I am excited and my hubby is too. As a friend of mine who adopted said the nice thing about adoption is that everything you do, puts you one step closer to your child.  This is true.

After the class, we watched my two lovely nieces so my sister and her hubby could escape to Napa for the rest of the weekend.  Everything went great and we had lots of fun.  We see my nieces all the time, so it's actually no biggie to spend the weekend with them sans mommy and daddy. 

I am exhausted and drained.  Lupr.on shots are going well and I am being brave with the needles.  After the first one, these aren't so bad since they are so tiny!  I am super bloated and I swear I have gained more weight.  I had a huge breakdown earlier when I tried on my dress I was planning on wearing to open house and it doesn't fit.  I have hooker boobs right now (hah!) and am feeling/looking very puffy around my stomach.  Nothing I think is open house "appropriate" fits and the stuff that does I really don't want to wear.  Pants..too tight and most of my skirts. Ugh.

I am off to bed. I have a 7:40 meeting with a parent tomorrow.  I'm gonna look through some of your lovely blogs tomorrow after the madness of open house.  Goodnight!


  1. I completely know what you mean about being prepared (you could even call it having a back up plan). My DH and I have also attended pre-adoption seminars and have even already decided on an agency if our FETs don't work.

    Hang in there! Classes are almost over!

  2. hi - stopping from ICLW

    uh, the wardrobe disaster is always the worst... i've been feeling all bloated for the past 2 weeks from all the progesterone suppositories. But I have big clothes from the times when I was 20 pounds heavier...

    I wish you all the best - so that all these tortures end up all worth it!

  3. Sooz--thanks!! I'm excited about everything right now.
