See that enormous hole in the ground? I woke up to that being dug at 7 am yesterday morning....my "Saturday". DH slept through it. Bastard. Seriously? You couldn't wait?
Oh, and hey! advance notice of turning off of water? Totally unnecessary! Or, you know, that the sewer lines would be cut and perhaps we shouldn't flush....Seriously?
Which led to me not knowing about the sewer lines and, well, not to be graphic, but I've been eating a lot more, and that means I have to, well, poo more. And I didn't know about the sewer lines. So I poo'ed. A few minutes later our neighbor comes in with a big cheesy grin on his face JUST to let me know that my poo was stinky, but cute, and perhaps I shouldn't flush for a while because IT'S IN THE HOLE IN FRONT OF THE HOUSE AND ALL THE CONSTRUCTION GUYS WERE PRIVY TO THAT FUN PART OF ME....
Go ahead, laugh it up. Everyone else did.
Okay, got that out of my system. Ahem, no pun intended. Alright, maybe it was.
I am really wordy this week....sorry, brain won't shut up. So let's see, what else....well, Monday night I changed the cat litter for the last time for the next 5 weeks (10 months????). In all my years of owning cats I never got toxoplasmosis, so I am off litter duty for the duration :) YAY!
My younger "sister" (it's a long story) is in the midst of a custody battle with her husband (they are 20 and have a child....don't get me started on the bitterness and envy I feel...but her daughter is so precious!!!) and apparently he's pulling out the big guns and has Child Services showing up today to try and prove neglect. To be safe she is getting rid of her menagerie...so last night we inherited a cornsnake named Adrian for an indeterminate period of time. We've turned down 2 cats lately, but DH said the snake was okay. We used to have 3 snakes in CA, and I've had numerous over the years. That brings OUR menagerie to: 1 dog, 3 cats, 1 tortoise, 1 hamster, 1 cornsnake. And when Chica moves in this fall, another dog. Oh, yeah, we're gonna start charging admission. LOL.
And....Frog's younger brother's girlfriend (did you catch that??) spent the weekend with the other brother and his wife, who is all earthy like me, but way healthier about it. She apparently was spewing great things about the benefits of a vegan diet for fertility. I was pesketarian (seafood only) for more than half my life, and vegan for a whopping 3 months...I really like cheese. But, she's convinced, and so assuming I can afford to go grocery shopping, I am going to clean up my diet a bit....I'm fairly responsible about it. I feel enormous and bloated with all I've been eating to try and beef up. I could stand to eat some really healthy stuff for a while. I don't think I will go totally vegan right now, but I'm going to try and up my soy intake and be diligent about my fruits and veggies. Have you ever heard anything about veganism and fertility? Love to hear if you have. I will take thoughts...if it helps Helga hold onto an embie, I'm all about it.
I warned you I'm wordy. Lots on my mind...
Last couple of things...I now believe in miracles...I've read some amazing BFP stories this week, my favorite being Helga's namer, Circus Princess. Thanks to her I've had You Sexy Thing stuck in my head for 2 days. That's a good thing :) Also, as I am at T-minus 2 days until Lu.pron, I want to also give a shout out to my Cycle Buddy Nicole ... she starts the same day as I do. She is as spazzed as I am, so if you get a chance, can you go give her some lovin'? Thanks!
Okay, I'll shut up for now. Thanks for listening, as usual. I am very verbose, and you are all very patient. Love you :)
