Ugggh, I am soooooooooooooooo sick of family drama right now.  I am apparently the bad guy because I was honest with a family member and now people are mad at me.  blah.  I just don't really care anymore.  It doesn't matter to me if they stay mad at me or not.  I have enough stress to deal with over here and dont need their stupidity adding to that stress. Blah.

fun and fancy free!

These past few days I have finally fully come to terms with this three month hiatus. It is a time for me to get healthy, which I have been very good with eating right I just need to work on the exercise part.  I am making a pact with myself that if I work out 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week, at the end of that week I will reward myself with a new book, new hair thing, or new nail polish.  This pact is starting tomorrow, which happens to also be day one of my second month of birth control pills.  Hopefully this pact will keep me motivated to get up and moving!
My little sister and I had a great heart to heart today before she left to go back home.  Her and my mom are concerned that I may have adverse side effects to the drugs that my doctor keeps giving me (fertility drugs and birth control).  Basically, they are concerned for my health because of tales of life-threatening issues.  I know that my doctor is very adamant on making sure that what I am taking is the right dosage and is not being taken for longer than I need to take them.  My mom, who just got back from a two week road trip to Reno, New Mexico, and Colorado, wanted to show that even though she doesn't approve of the use of drugs to help with reproducing, she still cares about me.  She got me a magnet of this little hunched back guy who is playing a flute.  It is actually Kokopelli, a southwestern native american fertility god.  Her way of showing she cares.  It works!

Happier post, kinda.....

I figure I should update my blog since I have nothing better to do until this stupid headache goes away.

Today, while chit-chatting with a lovely regular customer named Shana, I found out that her doctor diagnosed her with PCOS after they tried for 1.5 years for their daughter.  Even more encouraging about this is that her doctor put her on birth control pills for 3 months (just like mine did for me).  Most encouraging of all is that she got pregnant the first month after stopping said birth control pills.  That just made me feel much better about this three months of birth control.  THe things you learn from people while you wait for their coffee to be made at Starbucks! lol!

Another fun thing going on right now is that tomorrow I have a job interview.  It is for a position at a new Starbucks opening up closer to my home and to school (which will be really helpful next semester when I am back in class).  Its just a transfer but it is a well needed change.  I have been at my current store for 4 years, which is a long time.  I love my manager and my coworkers (most of them at least) but I just need a change. Did I mention that this location is opening up in an office building attached to the new Children's Hospital here in Grand Rapids?  Hmm, if I get this transfer I will be in that hospital volunteering as much as possible!

Friday is also when my younger sister (I can't really get away with calling her my little sister since she is about 4 inches taller than me!) comes into town! Yay! Can't wait!

Oh, and today is the first day of 7 inactive pills for my birth control pills, so only 62 more days! yay!

Okay, I am much better today than I was yesterday.  Definitely had a bad day yesterday.  Today is so much better.  Went shopping for fabulous farm fresh veggies and fruits, got sunday's dinner out of the freezer and into a pan to marinate, and now getting some last minute stuff done before picking up the husband.  I think being able to talk to people (my coworker this morning and my best friend this afternoon) really helped my frustration.  As much as I like to vent around the hubby, sometimes he just doesn't understand a women's perspective and just thinks I am overreacting.  Luckily, I do have a few people to talk to about this. I wish I could just fast foward to two weeks from now, when my sister is in town.  Then fast forward another two weeks, when my childhood friend is in town.  Then just fast foward all the way to the middle of november.  I don't care if I fast forward past my birthday, nothing I want ever happens that day anyways.  All I want is to have a spa day (manis, pedis and maybe facials or massage) and then a great dinner with friends.  However, last year that turned into a horrible party where my best friend was told she shouldn't be hanging out with me so much.  Hhhhrumph.  Hopefully, the hubby catches all the hints I keep dropping, he only has 58 days to plan something.  On that note, only 72 more bc pills left. blah!
