DAY 19: List 5 pet peeves.
1. Using the “Dominance theory” for dog training (sorry if I offend you, but poor puppies!)
2. The word, “alrighty.”
3. Annoying fertiles with their perfect bumps and kids
4. Hubster making fun of my chick flix. At least he knows to keep his mouth shut for Twilight! 😉
5. My coworker sucking back a ton of snot! She just did it again!!!! YUCK!
I went for a 3.25 mile walk yesterday with my fam and Emily (middle dog). It was wonderful walking down the greenbelt and canals, talking and laughing. And getting a workout! We did it in just over an hour! Anyway, my little cousin is 21 and has listened to me complain about IF since the beginning. Her standard response is, “That sucks.” And it works! Because this DOES suck. Anyway, I told her that one of Hubter’s friends is expecting and she commented on how many of our friends have kids or are preggo and actually empathized with me! Then when I told her about the upcoming baby shower I planned on skipping, but since they changed the weekend and another IFer is going, I’m probably going to go. She’s excited to have a fellow IFer there and I don’t blame her. But I still don’t want to go. I will feel too much jealousy and resentment and don’t know if I can hide it. But I’m sure I’ll go. Anyway, it was nice to know that someone not going through IF can actually empathize and understand how painful a life full of super-fertiles can be for an IFer. I love her. 🙂
And in other good news, my acupuncturist rocks!!!! Either that or my hormones are balancing out on their own. But I’m happy to report the metallic taste is GONE! Woooo! I think it’s the man with the needles and look forward to my session tomorrow. Going twice a week seemed daunting at first, but since the cost is really low and I feel better and better, I’m sticking with it. If anyone’s new to acupuncture check out a community acupuncture clinic near you! 🙂
Finally, Hubster and I got our tickets to OUTSIDE LANDS!!! YAHOOOOO! It’s an awesome music festival in beautiful Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. What a happy day!
