Good week

A few good things that have happened this week and it is only Wednesday!

v Saturday was our second wedding anniversary. We went to NO and had a great time. I truly love my husband more everyday!

v We have water at my house! Now, I know that most of you have water, but this is a new addition to our house that we are renovating. Now if we can get electricity I would be very happy.

v We are going on a cruise! That’s right, the much needed break we both need is going to happen Memorial weekend. I am so excited.

v I was offered a job! I needed to student teach at the beginning of next year and the school that my son is going to just happens to need a 5th grade teacher. So I will “student teach” for the first 12 weeks, and then will just stay on as the regular teacher. This will be a big change from teaching 4 year olds, but I think I am ready for it.

v And last but definitely not least, I finally got a call back from my boy's worker and it seems like they are starting to get their acts together and are going to get us into classes ASAP! Of course the week they want us to start is the week we are going on the cruise, but I am not worried. It will happen when it happens. I am really trying to live by that motto and not get stressed out about things that I can not control. The plan is to have us take classes in a different parish, but have my home study done by a worker in my own parish. Wish us luck, and speed!

My angioedema has hit an all time low; literally….I kept waking up last night because my vajayjay was itchy, but not too bad. I initially thought that maybe it was a yeast infection since I had gone swimming earlier, but wasn’t sure since I have never had one before. It seemed to keep getting worse so I finally just got up and went to the bathroom to see what was going on, and low and behold, one side of my vajayjay was swollen to twice the size of the other side. The saddest part is that I was happy that it wasn’t my face this time. Unfortunately, this seems like it will continue for the rest of my life. I have been to an allergist and it is NOT hereditary angeioedema, it was induced by too much estrogen exposure from my first IVF. I wonder what the differences between the two are.
Anyway, this brings me to the e-mail that I am sending to my dumbass fertility doctor in Colorado who said when I called him two weeks after my first failed cycle that there was no way that any of the drugs that he had prescribed could have had influence on why my lip was swelling. He suggested I take some benadryl and relax. The e-mail will include the name of the drug, CLIMARA, as the culprit of this induced angioedema. I just thought that he should be informed about the side effects of the drug he prescribed since he doesn’t seem do the research himself. I know that I was never told about this side effect by him. I will post my e-mail to him when I am done with it.
In better news, it seems as if my house is finally coming together and might even be livable by May 11th, the day we have to move in. At this point all we need is for the major things to be inspected and turned on. Honestly, as long as I have a working toilet and shower everything else is plus.
In other house news I really hurt myself yesterday. My husband is doing all of the plumbing for the house, and as most of you know in Louisiana a lot of the houses are on pier and beams. This means that you can technically go underneath your house if you want. My husband has been accessing the underneath of our house through an old floor heart vent and had left it open, needless to say it got dark and I fell though it. Nothing is broke, just badly bruised and sore.
No news on my prospective adoptive child, nothing, no calls back, no pending information, nothing. I will keep calling; it is all I can do.

Smiley's court date was cancelled today. I don’t have all the information, and am figuring that Dream Mommy will post about it tomorrow.
