I belong to this online community that’s mostly frequented by young women in their 20’s and 30’s. One of the topics that’s often discussed there is pregnancy. There are quite a few women there who are trying to get pregnant and they post about their status. Something I’ve noticed is that it’s so easy to become obsessed with taking pregnancy tests. I mean, there are some women who test compulsively every day from five days before their expected period until they either get a positive or start their period for the month. I’ve always thought these women were crazy. I mean, think logically – you know when your period is expected and you know that the most accurate results are obtained when you wait until after you’re late to test. So wait. It’s really not that easy. I’m at least 2-3 days away from my expected start date (could be longer, because it’s my first month off the pill) and I’m itching to test! I wake up every morning and wonder “Hmmm. If I tested today would I get an accurate result?” I refuse to let myself test until I’m actually late, but I am starting to see why some women find it hard to wait. Especially if they’ve been trying to get pregnant for a while. Playing the waiting game is enough to make you crazy. Haha.

I’m occupying myself by having en ER marathon. Currently about halfway through season eleven.

Absolutely LOVE that show! I started watching it a few years ago, and watched it almost to the end of the series but my interest slowly dwindled. So I’m determined to watch it through to the end of the series this time.


In other news, it’s a little after noon on Friday and I still haven’t heard anything on those jobs. Ugh.

Annnd… the weather here is officially turned cold. We had a fairly mild September compared to what we usually have, and it turned cold really quickly. Today it’s 5 degrees Celsius (41 F for those of you south of the border). Tonight it’s supposed to go down to just one degree (33.8 F)! Brrrrrr! Finally had to give in and turn the heat on! So I’m enjoying my ER marathon curled up in my coziest sweats and a warm blanket with the world’s cutest dog – my little girl, Molly.

That’s one of my absolute favorite pictures of her. It was taken a couple of months ago, just a few days after she had her fur cut. Pretty adorable, right?

Today was just one.of.THOSE.days. I woke up feeling grumpy and it has continued throughout the entire day. Ugh.

It’s not entirely without reason. I’ve been waiting to hear back from a job interview that could start me on the road to having a career instead of just having to take a crappy minimum wage job. They were supposed to make a decision and contact the successful candidates this week. Thursday has come and gone without any news, and I’m quickly becoming more and more discouraged. If I don’t get this job (well, actually one of these two jobs because there are two positions), I’m going to have to give in and start applying for crappy unskilled positions. *siiiiiigh*

Due to my major grumpiness, I spent a lot of today in the kitchen. Cooking and baking always makes me feel better. This afternoon I made peanut butter caramel swirl brownies, and I just finished making chicken parm for supper. It was DELISH. Mmmmm. (Recipes and pictures to follow later!)

While my time in the kitchen did help reduce the level of my grumpiness, I’m still not feeling 100% back to normal. So I plan to spend the evening curled up watching TV – which is perfectly fitting since Thursday happens to be the best night of television. First I’ll watch The Big Bang Theory and get my nerdy Shelly fix, and I’ll round out the evening with Grey’s Anatomy. 🙂
