I started feeling kind of bad the weekend of the Alabama game & no, it was not because the Hogs lost. Nancy (fabulous hairstylist who has known me since I was 15--and has loved every minute of the Kelly Cortney story since it start May 21, 1999) made a comment that I seemed stressed. Kelly (she only likes to do our hair when we are both there.. i think she enjoys our banter) jumped in immediately telling her that I have taken on to much and he told me to say no to some things... blah blah blah..
So for the last 2 weeks I have been going to bed as close to 930 as possible, with the exception of a few nights that hit the 1030 mark. I get up every morning feeling like I was run over by a MAC truck (symptom #1) I then drag myself through the first half of work and I am unusually cranky. Not to say that I am always Mary Poppins, but 90% of the time I am in a good mood. The other 5% is stress induced. The remaining 5% would be husband induced. I eat my breakfast, which is either cereal- Honey Bunch of Oats or Cheerio's or Activia light yogurt with oats and almonds. I eat this everyday,well I alternate cereal and yogurt, but the past couple of weeks, right after breakfast I feel like I may lose it. (symptom #2) Struggle to feel better throughout the morning and I then leave for lunch and if I do not have something on the calendar for that day I drive to the near by park and sleep in the back of my jeep... like a hobo.. for the next 59 minutes. (symptom #3).
All of these things were brought to my attention by sweet lil JWOW. This in turn lead to the forced action of me peeing on a stick today after my car nap. When I say forced. The pitiful lil pregnant girl had to waddle herself to the closest Walgreen's and endure weird looks from the cashier as she bumped her 9 month pregnant belly on the counter as she was trying to pay for this test that I did not want to take. SO, I figure if she was willing to go through all of that I should at least man up and take this stupid test... and nobebe nobebe....Which I said lots and lots of prayers before taking the test that if it was meant to be I would accept whatever the result was. I was going to be terribly sad if Europe was going to be put on hold for a extended period of time!
The Harding meeting was good. They talked a lot about the new program they are having at the Bentonville campus. It will be a hybrid and classes will be 6 weeks long. Some will be on-line and you will be required to post & discuss 5 out of 7 days, the other will be meeting once a week for 3 hour at a time for the 6 weeks. Pretty cool concept. I am just praying for the day when Kelly is done... Looks like next Halloween will be a joyous time of the year.
After the HU meeting I was supposed to meet Ali, Kristy, & Amy for a COE meeting at Crabby's. Which brings me to something else. Seafood. I wish with all my heart that I could like seafood. My mom said when I was little I ate shrimp like it was going out of style. I also loved crappie.
