Encouraged

Ladies, I just have to say thank you. All of your encouraging comments (and info about bding!) was really helpful.
I have some good news about my job...
It looks like I am guaranteed a 60% teaching contract. This means that right now I teach 5 period and have 1 prep period. But next year I will likely teach 3 periods and have part of a prep period. This is amazing news. It's great because here in CA we're so screwed up with our budget that I'm thankful to have a job at all. I even looked at the Disneyland website to see how much they pay (somewhere around 10 bucks an hour if you're interested) and I found that teaching even 40% is still more than anything full time at Disneyland or Starbucks, or basically any retail.
So I am thrilled. The district can still increase my contract if they end up needing me to teach a full day, but they can't cut me less than 60%.
SO, there is hope for IVF. DH and I still have to sit and think and pray about timing and what is right, but I'm feeling really hopeful. I also think skipping hte IUI this month was good because we inadvertantly saved 800 bucks that we would've used and now we can put that towards IVF.
So, when decisions are made I'll keep you posted, but until then, I'm just thrilled with the job situation, and hey, Glory to God when life is good and Glory to God when life is tough.
Take care ladies and have a great week!

Great to hear! Here on the east coast, teaching jobs are being cut as well although our district is one of the few that is not cutting anyone- counting my blessings too! Hoping that IVF works out in the near future as well:]
