~~ hi all ~~
dd and i are sneaking in some christmas music while dh and sons are out surfing. hehe.
nice to see everyone and read about appointments, moves, cleaning and food. speaking of food, i think it was sunday that i was on mdc and reading someone's post about having chili for dinner. of course, in that instant, i had to have chili. made a big ol pot and it was sooooo yummy. those kind of things happen to me pretty regularly. i think of something, and i have to have it. one of those things is fish n chips. i've been thinking of them for a few days.... hmmm, maybe i'll call dh.....
i'm suffering a bit from a cold, but feeling less nauseated today. after so long feeling queasy, i'll take stuffy any day.
i have a meeting tomorrow evening with the parents in my class ( i teach first grade). i'm going to announce my pregnancy to them. i'm a little anxious/nervous about their reaction. some may fear i won't be coming back (although at this point, i feel i'd like to return sometime in the next school year). in a waldorf school, teachers ideally stay with the same children for 8 years, and some parents are really attached to this ideal. of course, as we all know, life happens. but that rationale doesn't change people's feelings. perhaps i also feel a bit of guilt for starting on this path and then having to switch gears.
anyhoo, positive thoughts!! i'm looking forward to everyone in my work community knowing, so i don't have to wonder whether my growing belly is causing people to ponder....
