My fifteenth first day of school. It was good as far as first days go. In the morning we had a Frank Covey representative present to us (Seven Habits of Highly Effective People). No silly games, no role playing as children, no decorating a golf cart and having a parade (yes, we really had to do this one year on the first day). Just a straight, simple presentation. Not sure I agree with everything the presenter said though. It was about how to stay positive and make changes in your life. Sorry, Bud, there's no change I can make that will give me a baby. I still have a bit of possibility for this cycle and two frozen embryos but after that...I'll have done all I can do. No amount of good attitude or work or ambition can change that.
In the afternoon we met with our principal and building staff. I think it's going to be a good year, for school, anyway. The new principal seems to be level headed and very easy to work with. A lot of the restrictions we've had the past few years seem to be going away and a more traditional, common sense approach returning to our school. I'm looking forward to first grade.
Still nothing on Symptom Watch 2010. I had my blood drawn tonight and asked the clinic to email my first beta result. At least I'll have some sort of number to look at and obsess over.
