Look how long it’s been. This has seriously been a very, very busy year! I have so many projects going on, so much stuff with the new house, and if you add in the day-to-day upkeep and working full time (not to mention the incentive work I bring home on the weekends), there’s not much time left to update here. We’ve really put all things TTC on the backburner. It’s more of a “not preventing” thing… even though I would like to lose weight before getting pregnant (ideally). I want to get into running, so I’ve started a 5K training schedule on my new treadmill and hope to run one in the spring. I know, my thoughts are very sporadic… but where do I really start when it’s been nearly 4 months since I have been on here?!
At work, I made it past my “probation” period, but the other girl hired on the same day did not. Since then, they have hired 2 new employees. They’re both pretty nice. Things at the “not-so-new-anymore” job are going pretty well. I have caught on and learn new things pretty much every day. I got my first review about a month ago, but was hired too late for a raise this time around. That went really well, they seem to like me, and my supervisor is a lot of fun with a good sense of humor.
We still have about 6 boxes that have never been unpacked since moving into this house at the end of May. Have been hanging things up and decorating here and there, but I would really like to paint. Might save that until after the holidays, during the slow and boring part of winter. That way, in the spring we can focus more on outside, and I can plant some flowers and stuff like that.
Last weekend I went to my first comic convention, and though dorky, it was a lot of fun! We got to meet Brian O’Halloran–Dante from Clerks. He was really nice and we got his autograph and a picture with him. Also got to buy some very unique art pieces that we can frame and hang in our new house. My best friend from high school and her friend came here (she lives 3.5hrs north–where I grew up). So that was a nice weekend. It’s crazy to see how much we both have changed and grown as people. I had not seen her in about 4 years, since one of the last times I was at my parent’s house. (In the past 5 years I have been there 3-4 times. They usually visit here, where my sister and I live. I’ll just say my transition phase into life on my own was a long road.)
Hmmm… what else?! There’s probably so much that has happened that I am leaving out. My husband hasn’t been feeling great lately, we’ve been to the ER twice in the past week. He’s MUCH better now, but things were pretty bad for a minute there. He has this cyst, yeah I should probably just stop at that. It’s been a long ordeal mainly because the doctors at the first ER did not do what they should have to take care of it. We got home last Sunday night at 2:20am and I missed work Mon & Tues… then we saw a specialist Tues and he wasn’t even the right kind of specialist. It’s been stressful and frustrating for both of us. He is currently on two different antibiotics and finally getting some relief from the pain.
*Whew* that was a lot. If I were saying it aloud, I’d be out of breath. I’m really motivated right now, so I am going to start a run on my treadmill. This is my thing right now, hopefully the motivation sticks around 🙂 Gotta make that thing worth the money. I told myself when I got my “real” job that I would buy a treadmill, and I did, so I definitely need to make it worth it!
