My 15th First Day

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.


  1. Its already time for the blood draw/beta?! Wow!!!! You are so amazingly calm! Congrats on your 15th first day of school and your right, being positive only gets us so far, the rest is up to HIM. xoxoxoxoxoxox

  2. Those 5 day transfers really do have a lot of benefits -- including a shorter TWW! But then you had to agonize those extra days before transfer. Not sure which would be harder.

    GOOD LUCK!!!

  3. 7 Habits is all about doing something every day that moves you toward your goals, and you're already doing that.

    Glad you didn't have to do that golf cart thing!

    Here's hoping!

  4. I'm sending up prayers for a good result! When will you get the email?

    It sounds like today is off to a good start. And wonderful news about the new principal, especially after the last one left so unexpectedly!

  5. I'm praying hard and keeping everything crossed.


  6. Ha! If only our attitudes really could give us a baby! How magical would that be?!?

    Still pulling for you and your cycle lady...

  7. Congrats on your new school year starting off so well! Here's to EVERY area of your life starting off this well--

  8. Hoping & praying for you, Paige!

  9. Hoping to hear about a big # soon...
