My Retirement from Bowling and Other Weekend Happenings

I have to say that I am loving my new online friends. You guys make me smile. And you give me hope. You make me feel stronger. I am thankful for all of you. I can’t believe how many people I am rooting for, or sad for or just thinking and wondering about, in such a short period of time. Am I wierd or does anyone else feel that way? Anyway, talking to all of you is such a pleasant suprise for me. I started my blog with the intention of blah-ing out my feelings to get them off my chest. I figured I’d get a few views here and there. I supposed that I might connect with a person or two. I had no idea that I’d find such support. So thank you…

Let’s see. What went on over the weekend?

1) Friday night @ a friend’s house. Husband and his buddies played pool, while a friend and I (sadly both a bit cranky) sat and bitched about our weeks. It was nice. Sometimes you just gotta bitch and its nice when you meet up with a friend who just has to bitch too. =)

2) Saturday, a 1st birthday party. It was a lot of fun but it was also a bit sad for me. Several of the little ones there were conceived LONG after I started trying, including the birthday boy. But I see these babies frequently and I was okay with it. I was fine with it until the token pregnant girl at the party showed up. And then I just layed out a blanket on the grass, plopped myself down and took a nice little nap in the shade. Thats the nice thing about parties at parks, you CAN lay down on a blanket, because you’re not the only one doing it. It doesn’t seem at all wierd. Luckily we weren’t at, like, Chuck E Cheese or something. I cried on the way home. Friends over in the evening and a couple of glasses of wine. I secretly wanted to go to bed but still, it was nice seeing friends.

3) Sunday, laid in bed until 10am with husband and then bowling with the fam and a couple of friends. I can honestly say that I began and ended my bowling career with one game. I guess I enjoy bowling alley food and drinks much more than the actually playing…Hung with the neighbors in the afternoon. Seriously unhealthy dinner of frozen french fries smothered in home made chili WITH GROUND BEEF! EEEK! In bed by 7:30.

Ok, you may or may not have caught on to the fact that I have been either sleeping, or wanting to sleep quite a bit. As in, its all I think about. Yesterday was the absolute worst, as I bought a new pillow after we went bowling. That pillowed called to me all day, like nothing has ever called to me before. I think its a side effect of the new medication. While it is helping tremendously, I am tired a lot of the time. I can hardly stay up past 8pm. Some nights, like last night, I only  made it until 7:30. When I do stay up, 10pm is my absolute limit. I’m hoping that this is a side effect that lets up and will eventually go away. Anyone with any ideas on that?

Allright well I’m off to call the dentist and have this bite problem fixed before my jaw officially breaks!

The Dentist and 16 and Pregnant; AKA Why My Day Sucked

I apologize in advance for iPhone typos…
Today I sat in the dentist’s chair for four and a half hours. FOUR AND A HALF. I was really bummed that I had to go because I thought I had a cavity. Oh how I wish now that it had only been a cavity. I am not that lucky. What I had was a bad filling. And a bit of an issue with my gums. Taking the “I want to be pregnant and want no part in anything that could affect a pregnancy” route, I opted for some serious gum cleaning as well as the drilling out of my old filling and putting in a new. Let’s put it this way. I told husband that if he is ever faced with chosing between the gum cleaning or dying of a gum disease related infection, take the dying of gum disease option.

So after my 4.5 hours in the chair, I had only an hour to kill before picking up the kid from school. I decided to hit up Walmart for some cheap groceries (because I just spent all my money to pay someone to torture me by shoving stabby things into my gums for hours on end). So as I’m shopping for canned goods, the novacaine is wearing off. I’m very unhappy. Uncomfortable. I come across teen mom, her newborn, and teen mom’s mom, arguing over what is healthy for teen mom to eat while breadtfeeding. Teen mom and her mom continue this argument down every isle. No matter which way I turn, there is pouty teen mom and her probably very frustrated and tired mom. I just, I can’t even express my annoyance. I am not in high school. I am married. I have a home. (I was once even financially stable until IF reared it’s ugly head!). So there I am, in walmart, in pain, jelous of 16 and pregnant.
