Where to start? I feel like I haven't blogged in for-----ever. Heck, I think it has been something like three or four weeks? Kind of unheard of for me.

Basically, the last month has been chaos. Some of it good. Some of it bad. No. I am not pregnant.

My follow up appointment with the urologist was supposed to be this past week, but now I will be going on June 4th. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and praying that I have healed from the infection and that I am stone free and that everything looks good and normal!

But I don't know what this does to our FET opportunity before we go to Australia. I don't know if we will try to squeeze it in, in June...because we leave the 27th. So time is flying. A part of me would like to try. But it would be nice to go and enjoy things without having to worry or be anxious. I don't know. We're up in the air. I just don't know what I want to do. Dan is fine with anything. I'm the waiver'er.

Apart from all of that stuff, I am in the middle of annual review/reevaluation meetings at work. What this means for me is craziness. Meeting after boring meeting. Some run all day. Parents get cranky, staff gets cranky, I get cranky. I try to run a fun meeting...but sometimes other things happen....I even bring donuts as a bribe.

Annual reviews also means a TON of work for me. Reports, 1:1 justifications, calling parents, meeting with teachers, IEP writing. Paperwork paperwork paperwork. And then I feel bad because, out of necessity (and meeting dates), I end up neglecting my counseling groups.

At home, our house is **torn up**. Seriously. A bomb has hit it. Boxes everywhere, old newspapers strewn hither and yonder (for packing). Trash bags, "salvation army bags" and bags filled with Alex's stuffed animals are lining the halls. Oh yes. We are getting ready for the "big move". We hope to close on the house either the 24th or 25th of this month. And we still have so much more packing to do. But it is exciting, I will admit. And Alex tries to help with the packing, which makes things interesting, but not so efficient.

So that's all for now. I'm sure I missed a bunch of stuff...but here's some cute pics anyway :)
