Since I've Written Last...

Since the last time I blogged I have:
  • Started needing an alarm clock again.  Welcome back to the real world, I guess.  But I refuse to believe there are alarm clocks in heaven!  Lord Jesus, come quickly!
  • Officially started my new job as assistant principal!  Today was the first day of work for teachers, and we had a full day of professional development.  It was a lot of fun to get to know my new school family!
  • Received my IVF calendar!  WOO HOO!  So glad to get on with this process!  Our retrieval will be in September, but it's likely our transfer won't be able to happen until after the new year.  Due to my diagnoses, we are having to do some extra chromosomal testing on our embryos, which is apparently a time consuming process.
  • Begun researching my IVF prescriptions.  More accurately, Michael has begun the research. And let me tell you.  That stuff ain't cheap!  And it varies greatly from pharmacy to pharmacy. One of the prescriptions (an IVF world it's known as a "pen" in an attempt to not freak me out with the sheer volume of needles that are coming my way!) is $2500 at one pharmacy and the same "pen" is $5700 at another pharmacy!  Lord, have mercy!
I know that's not many bullet points, but it sure feels like a lot!  Between a new job and IVF, I feel like there's a lot on my plate!  Nevertheless, I'm excited to get started with all of these exciting new things!  (Minus the blessed alarm clock!!)
