School starts here on August 28th, and Deja is looking forward to starting first grade. I am particularly impressed with her teacher, Mrs. Ribbons, who sent her a welcome postcard a few weeks ago and then called me and talked to me earlier this evening. She also asked to speak to Deja, but Deja being Deja-she was shy and didn't want to talk right now. Mrs. Ribbons didn't take it personally, though-she said out of all the kids parents she had called this weekend only one of her new students wanted to talk to her over the phone.
I kind of chuckled and mentioned to Mrs. Ribbons that once she has Deja in the room, it will be a hard enough time getting her to STOP talking. They called me motormouth in junior high and I can see that the tradition lives on in Deja. Luckily, my mom has been hitting the Staples sales while I have been working-and she has three plastic TUBS full of school supplies-probably enough to last Deja until high school knowing my mom. I do need a backpack for her though, but will most likely wait until the last minute for that.
Sorry for not posting recently, I have been visiting other blogs and stuff, and have lots of email and stuff to catch up on-I've been so backlogged at work and kind of under the weather. So darn tired, and I know my anemia has started up again...it was getting better but I need an endometrial ablation to deal with the heavy monthly issues. I got the Depo shot at the end of May and June was wonderful, no monthly, lots of energy and the doctor said this should help control my bleeding until my surgery during layoff next Spring. Wrong! I started bleeding (spotting) on July 26th and haven't stopped yet. Granted, it is not heavy except at times but geez, I would have preferred one week of heavy bleeding to almost a month of non stop bleeding. Sorry to get so personal, but if I don't post for a few days it's because I am so wiped out. And no, I will NOT be getting a second Depo shot, scheduled for Sept. 2nd. I don't need it, had tubes tied when I had Deja by C-section but I thought this would be an alternative to my suffering a week a month.
Anyways, with back to school I am just as excited as Deja for their Open House on the 25th. My son is supposed to start 10th grade as well, and I pray he lasts the whole year without problems. Well, heading to lie down for a bit as I am so, so tired!~
