nobebe nobebe NO!

Well the good news is there is no little carlson on the way yet. The bad news is that I have consistently felt like crap for about 2 weeks now.. which lead to the forced peeing on a stick.

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.

 Now, no way no how can I eat it. I have tried on multiple occasions, but I just don;t like it. Once we went some where and I tired a bite of salmon. It was horrible, but it wasn't my favorite. So Kelly thought maybe I had been cured of my aversion, he immediately went out and bought salmon. Nope after like 2 bites I was done. I tired scallops once and those seemed to be ok. I don;t know if it is a texture thing or the taste of ocean that I get when I eat it, but something is stopping me from eating it.
Last night at Crabby's all the seafood sounded so good. I was even tempted to try some. But.. I stuck with the boring ole chicken sandwich. I think I need to do some assembly line taste test one day and just try all different kinds of seafood and see if I can find any that I will eat..

So you still don't know why you feel so bad? Is it stress? maybe you have vertigo... Rachel Zoe got that from stress!

Just curious but those look like positive tests. Am I reading those wrong?!
