I haven't yet received anything from Dr. Hilgers. I knew that there was only a small chance that I would be getting my response by today, but I was hoping that it would come. I guess there's a possibility that testing could get started this cycle, but I think that every day that goes by makes it less likely.
I've had pretty strong cramps all day. I don't know if they bothered me more since all I had to do today was get the kids I nanny for to and from school (the parents are out of town and grandma is watching the little one during the day). They seem stronger than what I've had in the last few months (although there in line with what I've had before).
D played basketball yesterday, and he went to go work out after work today. Hopefully this is the beginning of a good habit. Now I just need to get him to take his vitamins regularly; he's horrible about remembering.
I finally got around to registering at our parish. I started going to Mass regularly in September, but D had said that he might look for a new job and we might move (not in the cards for now). I put on the registration that I'd be interested in VITA, the pro-life ministry. I hope that I'll be able to find a good way to volunteer and also get to know some people at church. Currently, I only know the teachers at the church school and the parents and students I taught for 2 months last year (before realizing that teaching is not how I want to spend my life).
N, the oldest child of the family I nanny for, is in the grade with the kids that I taught. It's funny to spend so much time at that school now. S, the 3-year-old girl, is in PK-3 there too. S has been have more behavior problems at school after Christmas. She had some problems with listening and following directions at the beginning of the year, but she had been doing pretty well before Christmas. However, it seems like she has reverted during the break. Since I'm the one who picks her up, I am the one who hears about the day from her teachers (they send a note as well when she has a "red" (poor behavior) day). She is a very willful girl, and doesn't do to well with respecting authority. She is very smart so she is the youngest in her class, which can be a big deal at 3. The little boy, W, is 16 1/2 months and is very funny. He talks a little, but get very frustrated when you don't understand or take something from him. He's generally very sweet though (despite headbutts of love). He always comes to me when I come over, even when it's not for work, and wants me to hold him or hug him.
I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do with my life (careerwise). I hope to be able to be a SAHM after we have kids, but I'll probably go back to work once they are all in school. I don't know what I want to do then , but I'd like to figure it out in the near future. It's something that I try to remember to pray about.
