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.
