Patience is not a virtue

Well, it has been quite a while since my last post.  Not much has happened.  It is now a waiting game of getting everything in order.  It seems to be taking forever!  As per the title - Patience is not one of my best virtues.  However, I think I will be getting a lot of practice over the next year!!

Brian's frozen deposit has made it over to India safe and sound.  We are due for egg retrieval around the 4th of July.  It seems like a long time but in reality I am sure the time will fly by - (sarcasm).

 I am in the midst of taking two 6 week summer courses.  I need the credits so I can substitute teach next year.  Our state mandates that every 5 years teachers must take a certain number of continuing education courses.  So I (being of not so sound mind) decided that I should take not one but two courses because I have nothing to do all day but sit on my behind and write papers.  Hahahaha!  Brian just keeps shaking his head and saying - "why are you doing this now?".  If a baby comes next year I won't be able to substitute but I figure that there is no way I can take a college course.  So I dived right in and here I am sitting at my kitchen table all day writing about why the Restraining Act of 1767 was threatening to colonists.  Ugh! But on the bright side I don't have to take any more continuing education credits for another 5 years _ hooray!!!

My study buddies - I actually think they want to eat my stapler
but they do provide mental breaks every once in a while!
