Af showed yesterday....I am still in shock because it was only cd 22. I guess I need to realize that this process is going to always keep me on my toes. Just when I thought I was getting "it" together.

We gave our cat to a friend yesterday as well. We have had him since he was a kitten. There are several reasons we needed to find him a new home. However, it was so hard. I just couldn't stop crying. I just worry about him and hope he is happy. I know he will be happier with this new family. He will be able to roam free throughout the house and be himself. I keep telling myself that it was our job to get him to this point. He was in an animal shelter when I got he might not have found a home at all. I pray he is happy.

Today I had my first day as a substitute teacher. It has been almost 2 years since I have been in the classroom. And man...they kicked my hiney!!! They wouldn't listen...and some of them were a bit rude. I am sure that my emotional state isn't the best right dealing with a bunch of 5th graders wasn't my idea of fun. Also, DH was off while I was at work and now he is at work while I am off. He also works 14 hrs I won't see him much til Friday evening. That bums me out...He is my rock.

So there it all is in a nutshell....I am reminded of being barren...then I feel like a horrible person for giving my cat to someone else...then a bunch of kids won't even listen to me. I feel pretty insignificant right now. Hormones suck!!!!

I go for my baseline ultrasound tomorrow...then hopefully onto IUI #2....unless the RE says we need to wait another month. The sad thing is that I have found myself trying to talk myself out of wanting kids. I know it is sooo stupid. Yesterday I thought well....atleast I can sleep in...or do whatever I want...whenever...kinda. Yeah..I know...I wasn't that convincing. It just made me want it more, but at the same time I want to distance myself from it because it hurts so much. I don't want to feel the pain anymore. I just want to discard this part of me and not have to deal with it. These times truely are testing my strength.

That sounds rough!! Kids rarely listen to subs, so don't take it personally. Chin up. Show them who's boss.
I'm so sorry. I hope the rest of the week goes better. Only 2 more days, right??

Big hugs to you. I am so sorry things are so tough right now. I know how hard it is to give away a pet...that really stinks.

Hope the rest of your week goes better!
