TMI Baby Update


Guess my Depo shot is wearing off - my period started today. >.<

I have an appointment for Wednesday to get another one. It was supposed to be last week, but with the job change I didn't have insurance for a month. Sooo.... Bah! Good news is I'm still not pregnant! Bad news is I'm having a stupid period. Going to do 3 more months with the shot, then switch over to the Implanon Rod, I do believe. Also, we (Mr. T) got paranoid that the shot might be wearing off a couple weeks ago, so we've been using condoms, just to be safe.

Finally - don't think I've forgotten about my Thankfuls! I just don't get on the computer a lot outside of work. I have a long list of things to blog about and I'll get to them eventually. Be patient!!

Thankfuls - Day 5

Thankfuls Recap:

Day 5:
Today I'm thankful for having a permanent, grown-up, full-time job.

Oh, wait. I already said my job. Well, what I was going for with this one is that I'm thankful for vacation time. Because I'm sick of my job. 8D

Okay, I'm not sick of my job. I just need a vacation. I will have been here six months on the 29th and haven't had one single vacation day. So that's not totally true. I've had a couple of half days, for doctor's appointments. And I took off the Friday we closed on our house. But that was while I was a contractor. So I  didn't have paid vacation time. In all my twenty-four years I have not once taken paid time off. I've never been GIVEN paid time off to take! So I'm taking it! I'm taking it all! MWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

And by "all" I mean the two days they gave me that expire at the end of the month. And I'm taking them tomorrow and Wednesday. I will probably be a total laze-balls the entire time and LOVE IT. I *may* shower if I decide to go grocery shopping. Otherwise imma be playing some Assassin's Creed II with Senor Splinter in my lap all day e'ryday.

Thankfuls - Day 4

Thankfuls Recap:
Day 4:

Today I'm thankful for spammers.

If it wasn't for spam, I wouldn't have gotten ANY comments on my posts. THANKS, READERSHIP! I think Google's so good they never actually get published to my blog, though. I just get emails about them. Went to delete one, and it wasn't there. Magic! I am going to share some of the more delightful things they've said about my blog, though. They're so complimentary!
I need to to thank you for this fantastic read!
! I certainly loved every little bit of it. I have you book marked to check out new stuff

You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it! 
Asking questions are actually nice thing if you are not understanding something entirely, but this paragraph gives fastidious understanding yet.

Hurrah, that's what I was looking for, what a material! present here at this weblog, thanks admin of this website.
I'm amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a blog that's both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you've hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i'm very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something relating to this. 
My family members always say that I am killing my time here at web, except I know I am getting experience every day by reading such pleasant content. 
I drop a leave a response whenever I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to contribute to the discussion. Usually it's caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I browsed. And after this article "Thankfuls - Day 5". I was actually moved enough to drop a thought :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you tend not to mind. Is it just me or do a few of the responses come across as if they are left by brain dead individuals? :-P And, if you are posting at other social sites, I'd like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list every one of all your public pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed? 
Hi there it's me, I am also visiting this web page on a regular basis, this site is really fastidious and the viewers are in fact sharing fastidious thoughts.
Excellent weblog right here! Additionally your web site rather a lot up very fast! What host are you the usage of? Can I get your associate hyperlink in your host? I wish my site loaded up as fast as yours lol 
This next one was on my "TMI Baby Update" post:
I'd like to find out more? I'd like to find out some additional information. 
So...yeah - that's not even all of them! It's maybe 2/3. All I'm saying is...I'm getting more love from Spammers than my own "friends". And I'm about to lose my spammers' love, AND what little love I got from my friends, by putting the CAPTCHA back on my comments. SORRY, EVERYONE.

I guess the silver lining is that my blog is getting noticed enough to get spam? But apparently that takes very little notice, because I feel like I'm not noticed at all. Because, you know, NO COMMENTS.

Thankfuls - Day 3

Thankfuls Recap:

Day 3:
Today I'm thankful for scheduled blog posts.

Yes, because I did a terrible job of posting a "thankful" every day, so now I'm going back and filling in all the missed ones!! Mwahahaha! Even though Thanksgiving is only [redacted] days away, and I've only done [redacted] "Thankfuls" posts, people in the future will look back and see all 22 of them - one a day - in all their glory. Woo!!

Thankfuls - Day 2

Thankfuls recap:

Day 2:
Today I'm thankful I'm not in prison.

Let me explain. My car went kaput, as I kind of explained yesterday. Well, I didn't explain. I just said it went kaput. So, let me explain that. All last week (and maybe even the week before?) my car would start shaking when I got up to like 50mph. Told a few people about it and Mr. T even rode with me once - everyone agreed I probably needed to get a tire rotation. So I planned on doing that sometime this week. Maybe switch cars with Mr. T on his day off so he could take it in. Well, Monday morning I'm running late for work (SURPRISE). Run out to my car, get in, start it...the whole thing is just shaking. I'm like....crap.... But I gotta go to work! So I pull out the driveway and get to the first stop sign. "Check Engine" light comes on. Balls. I can't drive freaking 20+ miles to work, then 20+ miles back home with no clue what's broken on my car. So I thieve Mr. T's Jeep and go to work. He and LarsBar (temporary roommate - long story for later) drive it around with one of their car guru friends and all agree it's my transmission, probably. WOOOOOOOO. That's gonna be expensive. Still haven't gotten it looked at yet. That's a goal for my weekend.

Anyway, fast forward to yesterday. I've been driving the Jeep all week to work. It's freaking old - 20 years, I think. The gas gauge is super wonky on it. I've driven it four days and it's reading that is has 1/4 of a tank of gas. Not sure how accurate that is, but I'm running late for work (SURPRISE) so I figure I'll just buy gas on my way home. Get to work and realize I left my wallet at home. >.< OH WELL. Hopefully there's enough gas to make it home and then to a gas station. Fast forward to the end of the work day. Instead of coming home on 840 like I do in my car, I've been taking it easy on old Jeeparino and staying on 96. Slower speed limit and all that jazz. So I'm running low on gas (possibly) and trying to take it easy on this relic anyway. Not a lot of quick acceleration. This monster of a truck gets in front of me and is going supa slow. I'm ready for a very very frustrating drive home. But! Glory of glories! Do you hear angels singing?? Something I'd only heard about in fairy tales happened! He got over and let everyone pass him! It was beautiful!! Exclamation mark!

But. Now I'm the front car, after about 20 cars have been backed up. No bueno. I don't want to accelerate super quickly, but I don't want the hate of 20 commuters breathing down my neck, either. So I work my way back up to 55/60mph (speed limit is 55) and right when I do - RIGHT WHEN I DO - this truck pulls out in front of me. Goes maybe 100 feet and turns off. BAH! Start working my way back up....almost we go....HAPPENS AGAIN. This happened to me FOUR TIMES. Four times! Right as I hit cruising speed someone pulled in front of me, forcing me to hit my brakes. The first three times they immediately turned back off. The third time dude didn't even use his blinker until right as he hit the turn. I had to slam on my brakes to avoid hitting him. The fourth guy, unfortunately, didn't turn off again. I say unfortunately, because he went about 50mph all the way into town. So. Much. Rage. Because all this - ALL OF THIS - happened before I even made it to the four-way stop in Triune. AND THEN SOMEONE WENT OUT OF TURN AT THE FOUR-WAY. It was my turn, slut ball. MY TURN.

And then...oh, and then...turning off of 96 into our subdivision I got behind a pickup and minivan. Who didn't once use their blinkers while navigating through the subdivision. And I was behind them all the way to my house! The minivan used their blinker one time. ONE TIME. And there are six turns just to get to my house - they turned off on the street right in front of our neighbor's. SEVEN TURNS - TWO CARS - BLINKER USED ONCE. And then I had to go inside, get my wallet, and go buy gas.

Final straw? Mr. T's Jeep is super dirty. The windshield is smudged and when the sun hits it in the can't see sh*t. All day week I had been fantasizing about washing it and the rear window while I pumped gas. AND THE GAS STATION DIDN'T HAVE ANY CLEANING FLUID IN ANY OF THE STATIONS. 

Thank GOODNESS I am taking two vacation days next week. I'm about to straight-up dead some fools if I don't get a break. Wargarble.

Thankfuls - Day 1

I've been trying to get motivated to start blogging again ain't happening. I sit in front of a computer all day at work so when I get home I'm like "Oh f no, I'm not getting on a computer right now!" But I miss blogging. Throwing out my words for no one to read... I also haven't written in my journal in months. I lost it, again. Sigh. I'm a failure!

But! In honor of NaNoWriMo (we'll say, even though I'm definitely not writing a novel) and because those annoying FB status updates have started (gah, don't you HATE those??), I'm about to hit you with 22 solid days of Thankfuls. Yes, every day you get to hear about how awesome my life is. Have no fear, though! Since I am me, I'll probably also complain every day. That's how I do. I hope I don't get fired for posting a blog at work...because blogging is definitely not going to pay my bills.

*ahem: Day 1:

Today I find myself utterly exhausted at work. Like, "zoning out almost to the point of actual sleep" exhausted. Business Unit - send me things to put on your site so I have work! BUT. I do have a job - a job that I really do love (especially when Business Unit sends me work!) - that pays our bills even when Mr. T's job is a bit slow (come get tattooed, you fools!) and the transmission is (probably) out on my car and the dog gets an upset stomach so bad his farts smell like something straight from the pits of Hell for three days straight and we have to lock him in the garage because he can't go one night without diarrhea-ing in his crate but he still won't stop getting into things and ate an entire platter of cookies someone brought to our Halloween party that were delicious and I really enjoyed eating.
