The best laid plans

Ok, so my idea of updating throughout the weekend didn’t exactly work.  Between running the roads and games and social gatherings, I haven’t had 5 minutes to myself.  And as someone who desperately needs her ME time, it’s been a challenge.

I’m working from home part of today, then I think we’re going to head out to the World Aquarium.  Tomorrow morning I drop him off at the airport, go to work, and then have 2 evenings to get my shit together for San Diego.

I have much to blog about.  Just no time to do it right now.

Playing catchup

I’m not meaning to neglect you, dear blog.  I’ve just been on brain overload.  This past weekend was good though.  Another day or two longer and it would’ve been perfect.  😛

Met MommyK and MrsDrillTeam for lunch at 1pm on Saturday.  An appetizer of fried pickles, our entrees, and several glasses of wine later, we found ourselves on the patio, with more wine, a couple of shots, and a case of the giggles.  Good times.

A phone call with Dr Honeydew during the midst of all that was funny.  He may not have thought so though.  I told him MrsDT wanted to talk to him, he said ok.  Then she, loudly, asks in the background, “CAN I ASK HIM ABOUT THE PHONE SEX?!”  Guess he got his first taste of the bluntness that is my girlfriends….which, of course, is why I love them so much.  One reason anyway.

We finally left Love & War around 8pm.  Since it was so close by, I decided to swing back by the furniture store to check out the living room furniture I’ve been eyeballing for months.  I couldn’t find the exact match I was hoping for, so, with the decision making skills of someone who’s been drinking (lightly) for the past 7 hours, I ended up getting the whole set (sofa, chair and a half, ottoman, and chaise) in the same fabric.  It’s a cool golden tapestry print with a little burgandy and olive green in the background.  It’s scheduled to be delivered on Thursday.  Yippee!  I can’t wait to curl up in that big cozy chair with a good book this weekend.  Or lounge around and watch movies on the chaise.  Or maybe even snuggle with Dr Honeydew on the sofa next weekend!

I’ve got another game-watching gathering and GNO dinner scheduled with the hockey girls this Saturday.  Should be good times as well.

Work has been busy, but better lately.  With the transitioning of my being the primary support for all functional issues to me being the backup and 2nd level support and SD becoming the primary, that will free up a lot of time for me to get the rest of my responsibilities handled.  Granted, there’s some training time to make all of this happen, but the plan is, by the end of the month (and before I leave for vacation) she’ll be up and running and able to handle it moving forward.

I finally started yesterday, thanks to the added push from the progesterene pills Doc prescribed.  I’m supposed to insert the NuvaRing 2-5 days into my cycle.  So I’m going to try to wait until Thursday or Friday to do that to make sure the 3 week removal date doesn’t fall during my trip to San Diego.

She also called me with my test results from all the bloodwork I had done last week.  No pregnancy, no HIV, no STDs, no thyroid problems, no extreme hormonal imbalance.  So YAY for all of that.  She wants me to come back and do the glucose test again, after having fasted for 8 hours.  Apparently she has a very slight concern about that and something called PCOS.  But I’m not to panic until we redo that test.  I’m not horribly worried about it yet anyway because I don’t think most of the symptoms apply to me.  Although, the fact that I’ve been on birth control pills for the past 15+ years could have been what has kept (or delayed) me from experiencing some of them.  Hopefully I’ll make it by there this week to do the repeat bloodwork.  Figure if I go first thing in the morning, that will take care of the fasting part.

Dr Honeydew flies in next Thursday night.  He’s got a work-related trip to Chicago first, so now will be flying in from there….after having been up for atleast 24 hours straight from the labtime.  Anyway, I’m excited.

Merry Christmas, y’all.

Birthday was good.  Week was crazy, as expected.  And I feel like a stranger on my own blog.  I meant to atleast do an entry after my bday shindig.  Given the amount of alcohol consumed, that could’ve been entertaining.  Oh well. 

‘m heading to the parents’ tomorrow morning.  Probably won’t be online from there much either.  Unless I go to my brother’s and use his DSL.  My parents just have dialup and it is too painful to use.  It’s not even standard dialup speed.  It’s like 26k or something.  And it suuuuuucks.

I’ll have to play catchup (both posting and reading) when I get back.

Hope everyone has a very merry Christmas!

Moving Time

I think it is inevitable.  And that sucks.  But I think I have to change my blog location.  V saw it when she was here before the Halloween Party.  She said she was good and didn’t look, because she has one that she uses for the same purpose….a true journal, and understands wanting to keep it private from anyone she might mention.  So as to be able to not be influenced, and therefore less honest, by knowing those people might be reading.

But….I know she reads blogs religiously.  And I know that my earlier entry about our conflict was soooo not my honest reaction.  And I know I wrote a followup entry to that entry that has been sitting in ‘Draft’ mode because…well, I am a wimp and don’t want to worry about whether or not she is reading here.

And dammit, I want this to be a TRUE account of my inner thoughts at the time.  Sooooo, I think I’ll be moving soon.  What a pain in the ass.  Sigh. 

Comments from old blog:
gak – Nov 08, 05:  i’m glad you changed. i will keep up with you! at this point i’d like to move too… for honesty’s sake… but i don’t.

Nilla – Nov 06, 05:  Hmmm. My email notification things don’t seem to work. I am never ever ever notified for the lists that I am on, and, I have no idea if the people on the list of my blog are getting notified.

I would say it’s not really a headache but, not everyone is on the notify list- I have bunches of people that read and comment but only four on my ‘list’.

Daisy – Nov 06, 05: Well the only few I know of that read somewhat regularly are on my email notification list. Won’t that work? Or is this going to be a bigger headache than I thought?

Nilla – Nov 05, 05:  Do what I should’ve done when I changed blogs: Post a note saying to pass over email addresses if they want to be updated on your change. Then you can choose whether or not to let that person know where’ve you’ve gone. I went from over 40 readers to about 4 or 5 I think, and it really really annoys me, because after a year or so, it can feel like they are sort of your friends!

I had every intention of blogging today…

 But now it’s late and I don’t feel like it.

I was going to talk about my free half-day at work, my quest to find a Halloween costume, winning platinum level tickets to a Stars game, and Modano’s great games against Phoenix on Tuesday and then Calgary on Thursday. And my guilt over wimping out on a friend’s birthday happy hour/game-watching gathering tonight.

So instead, I’ll leave you with this. Sweet dreams.;)
