a 99% reaction

"Life is 1% what happens to you and 99% how you react to it." - idk who said that

Update - The doctor's office was closed on Friday too, so no test results from my blood work taken on Tuesday until Monday when I try to call them during my lunch and planning.  And, it's weird, but today, I'm okay with that.  At least, I'm choosing to be okay with that because what could we do if there was something not quite right but take more blood and monitor things?  At least, that's what the nurse had said.  I'm already taking prometrium for low progesterone, and as far as I know, they don't bottle HCG.  So I'm kinda glad, if something is wrong, that I don't know about it right now. 

So que sera sera - whatever will be will be.  In fact, when I call on Monday - after I voice my displeasure about not being called on  Wednesday and left to worry away that day instead of know the results of that test like they said they would call and tell me - I'll request an appointment at 8 weeks (when they usually do a first appointment) and see, hopefully, my bean with a heart on ultrasound that day. I don't even want the results from that stupid blood draw anymore.  Is that reckless?  And I don't want an ultrasound any sooner than that. Because again, what could they do if something is wrong.  I'm doing all I can do now.

I'm in trusting mode - probably where God wants me most anyway!  hehe  :-) Trusting that this rainbow is my rainbow and that God's perfect will - His providence - will be done in my life - I know it will.  And just typing that brings me comfort.

The above quote I started this post with is something I constantly tell my students!  Don't let what happens to you, rule you! You have a great power within you - choice.  I can can either choose to let worry and/or depression overcome me, or I can choose to do something more productive!

I choose productivity!  Which is a good thing because time spent in worry mode has gotten me behind!  I've got a HUGE amount of papers to grade! And only a short amount of time to get them done.  3 weeks till Christmas break!  Why does it take a deadline for me to finally get my butt in gear and get grading done?!  errr @ myself  But before I do that, I should finish planning my Sunday school lesson. ((procrastination nation here))

However, in the midst of all that, I need to make time for my daughter and husband too.  We've gotta get up that Christmas tree! :-)  That will be a fun break from grading...

Oh, and my project for BLMs is finally dry.  I have to move on to the next step with that too.  For those of you that tried to guess - sorry - no correct guesses yet. It's not paper mache. AND I'M SO STINKIN EXCITED TO DO THIS FOR YA'LL!  You're gonna love it, but I have to make sure it works first... hehe

I'm off to go work on that before I grade papers - priorities you know ;-)


  1. Trusting mode...wonderful! I love it when I'm in that space, as it feels so good :)

    Sending you loads of hugs and well wishes. Just so happy for you.

    Many Prayers Always

  2. Just want to send you some love and let you know that i am trusting with you. ((HUGS))

  3. Trusting in Him is good, hard sometimes, but good.

  4. Actually, they DO bottle HCG, but it's used in anabolic steroids and wouldn't be helpful to you. Unless you want to have some awesome muscles. Bummer, I know. But, I'm hopeful that everything is fine!

    And I don't want to return to work tomorrow. AND? My papers aren't graded.

  5. Ok I've been meaning to tell you this but for some reason I couldn't leave comments when I was using my iPad last week! CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I'm praying for you and your little bean too! :)
