    He's home
    and doing pretty good
    The docs are happy with how he is recovering and think it's an all over success

    The only downer today...AF showed up....
    not like anything could happen but the cramps from hell were hard to deal with on the drive to Rochester.

    Man I can't wait till I can actually start writing about TTC related items in here...

    Anyways,
    Here we are into August and Dan's on the mend pretty good. He hasn't needed any major pain killers for a few days and the area is looking better. He said he's feeling better and better....just getting anxious for the cathader to come out. That appointment is on the 12th and that's when I am going to ask about how long do we have to wait to have *some fun*...if he doesn't ask. Of course that will all be after making sure he's healed or healing good still. Don't want to make it seem like that is all I care about or something.

    Beyond that life is just going along...
    nothing exciting

    Sorry I have been a bit absent.

    Dan had his check up at the Mayo on the 12th and it looks like the surgery was a success. The doc does want him to keep taking it easy for a few weeks. He said if anything from the surgery is going to fail it will be within the 1st 3 weeks. So any good thoughts would be great Thanks ahead of time.

    I came down with major ear infections so we haven't been able to really enjoy his clean bill of health yet.

    Wow...
    I can't believe August is almost done.

    Anyways, yet again, kind of neglecting this journal but mostly due to recovering from the nasty ear infections and getting ready for school.

    Well Dan had a little scare that we thought may might have signaled a failure in the surgery but it was only a stitch popping. The doc said to moniter for signs of infection and ease back on the activities a bit. So, he hasn't been doing much and stayed home from going to the fair yesterday. He's been a bit sore with walking.

    AF showed up for me Saturday so that means by the time it is gone, it's the all the clear to start having some *fun* again...

    Not much else to report at the moment.

    Well here we are now into September and into giving the whole TTC a run for it's money. I failed to start temping but that's o.k. as I was never good at it anyways but I am trying to moniter things and keep track. Hopefully sooner then later things will start happening

    School starts next week so I am going to try and manage my stress so that won't affect things to much.

    Not much else happenng.

    Been a few days since I last wrote.
    Life has officially gone insane with the return to school but we have found plenty of time for some fun

    Anyways class is keeping us both busy but hopefully something will happen sooner then later. I think I may try and start temping when/after AF shows up.

    Anyways for something of substance a little from my last post I made over on my Livejournal.

    .....Good evening ladies and gentleman and welcome to Minnpolis, Minnesota where the current time is 10:06pm Central Time. We would like to thank you for flying Northwest Airlink and please remember to visit nwa.com for your future travel plans.

    So the joys of dealing with the drunken Twins fans on the light rail are a faded memory and now overshadowed by the fun conversion I overheard by two flight attendants in training. These flight attendants in training were practicing their announcements with each other, so it was interesting to listen but the funniest part was when one of them who had a thick southern accent kept trying to say Minneapolis, it sounded like she was saying Minnpolis. The other kept stopping her going," No no you have it wrong! It's Minne-a-polis, Minne-a-polis, saying it with me now Minne a polis. I don't know, it was late, I was tired, it amused me for so odd reason. Overall though, it was a nice quiet ride down to class and a one back as well.

    Speaking of class, can we say a complete 180 from the previous night's educational escapes. First, when I was briskly walking to the room my class was held in and I ran into my professor from my Teaching Social Studies through the Fine Arts Class. She stopped to talk to me which surprised me, always does when teachers remember me. She is a bit scattered brained but I did like her class and she always got a kick out of my lessons as they were usually all legal/government orientated. Then into my classroom I went, my professor walked up and shook my hand, introduced herself as Amy rather then Dr. Smith, handed me a sheet of paper, asked about my watch, and then decided I was official time keeper for class as she hates watches, talks to much and needs someone to pull her back to the task at hand (she kept blaming that on the fact she's a abstract random personality). Then we had a brief talk about personalities and asked what I was, I said from what I learned previous I am both abstract random and concrete sequential. Eventually we got started yet again with the usual first day events…it was pretty laid back really until we had a few visitors then the anxiety levels hit the roof.

    The first person who came to speak to us in the individual who used to teach the Circles classes. Now they are little seminars that we have to attend. I found that I need to attend one to make up for the last half of Circles II. So in this little seminar I have to be interviewed (they are going to send me some prep questions after I sign up for one) and discuss my portfolio which should be close to be being done (note to self get on this ASAP). Then she talked about the seminar most of the other people in my class will be attended, and that deals with final approval for their portfolios. I found that when they are being reviewed prior to student teaching, you turn it in, a committee reviews it and if they don't like it's sent back with revisions, you revise it and send back, then pray to the school gods they like the revisions. I guess if they don't like the revisions you don't get to go student teach the semester that you intend to. I hate how they are changing up the program left and right at the moment. I guess they changed this piece because they found way to many students slapping it together at the end and just doing poor work in their eyes. So long story short, I need to register for one of these seminars which are either 10/25 or 10/30 and get my butt in gear. You know that insanity in my life I was saying I was missing…well I guess it found me and found me good. Then the woman who organizes field experiences came to talk and I had to go back to her office to do some switching things around being I need to do #2 rather then #3 (this will come next semester). So needless to say by the end of the night I was spent mentally but this is good, forces me to get my stuff together, buckle down, just what the doctor order really.

    Overall the class is going to be fun I think. The professor was really nice and just all over the place, totally has a passion for the subject, willing to help in any way possible, and the best part….a ONE page syllabus. In terms of workload, lots of reading to do but not much in terms of papers and whatnot except for a few lesson plan type things.


    Well, I should close this out…
    I have writing it through the day and just found out when I got back from lunch this on again, off again, idea of moving me is happening Monday morning. So I am getting evicted from my lovely cubicle of doom so the last few hours of work will be filled with work and moving all my work related items, my little figures and pictures upon pictures to the new cubicle.

    Beyond that, not much is happening. Just trying to get into the swing school and balancing that with work again. I will just leave the entry with the same bit that I am a happy boot ***** at the moment. I went to Macys on lunch as I had a coupon they sent me and FINALLY found a nice pair of black boots with a chunk heel! I haven't been able to find any chunky heels since my favorite pair died a couple winters ago. Not that I don't like my pointy toed high heeled boots, it's just that they aren't that friendly in the winter namely when running after a bus.

    Blah blah blah….Weekend plans are up in the air, so I will bid you all adue and say take care, have a good one, hugs to those that need them

    take care all!

    Oh wow, I have neglected this...
    Not much to report TTC wise.
    Dan and I moved over the weekend so the last few weeks have been crazy busy insane. We moved to a two bedroom apartment so hopefully the 2nd room will be a short lived office.

    Popping in for a post.

    The move went well...we are about 95% set up in the apartment.
    School is keeping my crazy busy but I am having a horrible time keeping my interest in the classes.
    Work is work

    Not much on the TTC front.
    I failed miserably starting to temp and whatnot so I am going to try and get myself doing it next month.

    Here I go slacking again...
    Not much to discuss I guess.

    My mind has been thinking about today...I can't believe that it's been 5 years since I learned what today was. It's been 5 years since the losses...
    I really thought life would be different...

    Life is good don't get me wrong.
    School's going well I feel like despite the lack of interest in my classes
    Dan is healthy
    Dan's schooling is going well
    The new apartment is great (despite crappy parking..the apartment is great).
    We celebrated my birthday and the new place on Saturday.

    A brought over the little guy though...
    Such a cute little ham, love that baby to pieces I tell ya but it made part of my heart break a little bit. You know...those wonders of when if ever is it going to be my turn, you know that kind of thing then you feel horrible for feeling like that.

    I don't know...
    I was thinking about Dan's surgery maybe the whole TTC thing would be a bit quicker. Granted I haven't charted, temped and all that jazz becuase of the schedule and well I have never been that great at it in the past but I just thought maybe it would a bit speedier this time.

    ...feeling a bit down today too as good AF came on knocking today of all days.

    So well I just blubbering here and probably making no sense. Feeling out of sorts I guess. Stupid PMS...

    Anywho.

    After AF is done I am going to try and get back on the saddle here and really focus on TTC stuff like temping, charting and all that fun stuff.

    Well freaking color me confused.
    I don't understand this cycle to save my freaking life.

    O.k. so ever since AF has started to visit me...you know from day 1 back in the day when I was a teenager. My cycle has always been wonky...thank you underactive thyroid.
    Despite that irregularity...my periods have always had their signs like before it came I was always cramper then crampy, always on a emotional roller coaster a few days before and throughout the cycle, then last but not least my periods have always been heavy...heavy...heavy.

    Well this cycle I am baffled...
    No signs it was coming...
    Spotting on Tuesday, it was due on Wedneday.
    Full flown period stuff Wednesday
    Then nothing on Thursday...no bleeding no nothing.
    Friday...spotting returned and by afternoon full blown period stuff and horrible cramping and bloatness
    Saturday..nothing and then a same bout of spotting in the afternoon
    Sunday...nothing...no bleeding, no cramps, no nothing
    Today...nothing in the morning and then this afternoon, spotting

    I don't know
    This is just weird
    I have never in recent memory had a period like this
    I was chatting with a coworker and she said it's probably age catching up with me. I guess I figured the cycles would change a bit as I got older but this just seems really out there to me.
