No Luck

We did our first IUI on the 5th and it didn't work. The next cycle we will use a different medication and shot. I didn't really expect it to work the first time because they are finding out so many things at the same time. Even though I wasn't too optimistic, it is still hard to hear that it didn't work. Don't get me doctor and his nurses are amazing! They are so delicate and sweet, but it is still difficult. You put all your effort and hope into something and then nothing. Hopefully, the next time I'll be more optimistic. But, right now I'm not feeling that way. After two years of trying and nothing happening, it gets frustrating.

I think part of the problem is that I am just soooooo tired. I have a really tough class this year. Well, I should say I have three very difficult students. I leave each day exhausted and unhappy about what I'm getting accomplished because all of my time is spent dealing with severe behavior problems. This on top of the fertility issues have made me feel tired all the time. Friday is the beginning of a week vacation for me. I am ready!

I going to OKC to spend the weekend with some girlfriends and then on Saturday we are going to Tulsa to Affair of the Heart. Apparently, it is a huge flea market/craft show. It will be fun to get away and have some girl time. Then we are going to spend Thanksgiving with Barry's family. I'm ready for some down time.

Do any of you have fun plans for Thanksgiving?

Sweet Hope

Sweet Hope

Sweet Hope is an organization dedicated to helping orphans worldwide. Sweet Hope began when Derek and Lisa were trying to raise money to adopt their son from Russia. They sold truffles to raise enough money to go to Russia to bring him home. After he was home with them, they continued to get requests for their delicious truffles. They continued with making them, but with a new focus to help not themselves, but orphans around the world. This year, all proceeds from the sales of their candy goes to help orphans in Khabarovsk, Russia.

Sales of Sweet Hope truffles and caramels will begin November 9, 2009 and continue through November 27. Sweet Hope candy makes fantastic Christmas gifts or just a little treat for yourself.

To learn more about this wonderful organization, go to Sweet Hope. While you're there, grab a button for your blog and vote for your favorite truffles. Sales begin November 9th. I for one am hoping for my favorites make the cut!
