Thanks folks, for putting up with my rant the other day. I feel really bad when I’m posting my problems for my online friends to read. But, life is not all cherries and roses, is it?
Last night sucked. Cooley, in all his kitten glory, decided to climb the blinds in the bedroom SEVERAL times last night. I still felt like death warmed over, so neither John or I got a good night’s rest.
Today was better. We had out appointment with the OB-GYN to discuss pre-natal/pre-conception issues, mainly being my medication. I’m going on a new anti-depressant tomorrow. It’s one I was on in middle school, but I’m hoping that maybe I won’t have the same side effects now as I did then (severe tremors.) I’m also going off several other meds that would not be good to have in my system if I get pregnant. He’s taking away my sleeping pill … so we’ll see how this goes. Thank the heavens for Tylenol PM.
We also did our taxes today. Oy – I hate taxes. We’re in a higher tax bracket this year, so we’re not getting that much back at all. John said I could have the tax return to get Civil War re-enactment supplies, if he could spend his bonus on what he wanted. Fair is fair, so I agreed. As long as it’s not cheap liquor and hookers. Really … CHEAP booze! LOL
We went to the local Chinese buffet (we can walk there, that’s how close it is) for dinner, and then discussed getting back on track in our lives. Stress is driving John mad, and it makes everything else so much worse. We also discussed getting back on budget with out money, and putting more into savings each month.
All in all, I think we felt better after a big heart to heart and a good does of wonton soup! So tonight, I’m going to watch a movie and then head to bed, and maybe even knit a little bit.
OH – and I have to mention … have you guys/gals been watching LOST! This season is getting back to the good plot lines of seasons 1 and 2, and I can’t wait to see what happens. If you are a LOST-ie, and if you haven’t checked this out … take a stop over at DocArtz’s lost page/blog. The site is amazing! A few thoughts I have so far (and if you are not caught up this season … DO NOT READ AHEAD — spoilers!)
– There have been big hints towards reincarnation this season. Charlotte, while dying, confessed to Daniel that he looked like someone on this island she knew as a child. Locke has to die to save them, and from what I saw in the last episode, he’s not dead yet? Or will time travel play in that as well?
– Finally … some more about the origins of the Island! The temple gives great clues, and we saw ‘Smokie’ again!
– Faraday’s mother. Who is she … and more so, WHEN is she from!
– And what is so important that is convinces Hurley to go back to the island?
Oy – I could go on and on … but I have some much needed movie watching and relaxing to do.
