Hey, wanna know what I learned today?
Chinese medicinal tea smells like weed.
Even though I’m undecided on if I want to get pregnant right this minute, I figured I would try the tea because I have a textbook case of low progesterone and it’s making me feel like garbage. Also, it makes me mean. The assistant swears that I will get used to the nasty taste and stop minding it in a few days. I hope she’s right. She also told me I was drinking tree bark, so yay.
In other news, guess what came in the mail today…
Oh yeah, I definitely got an Allied Medal display from my husband for running Cap City. I put it right by the front door so all who enter will know my awesomeness. It’s really nice, although it’s kind of sharp! Every time I handled it I felt like I was going to get a cut (I’m so accident prone I once paper cut my eyeball). They do warn you of this repeatedly on the packaging, but I didn’t expect it. It could use a few more medals, though, which brings me to my next point.
I think I’ve decided to run 2 halfs (or should it be halves?) this fall. I know, I know, that’s crazy talk, but there are two that sound awesome about a month apart and the first falls quite appropriately in the training schedule for the second. I’ll need to make some adjustments to the schedule for the week of, but I think this will work perfectly. Also, Duane, my other pace coach said it’s totally doable. And he knows this stuff.
This weekend is going to be crazy-town because husband graduates from law school on Sunday, so Mr. Big Pants and his wife, my mom and my in-laws will all be here. This is a little too much excitement for me since I still feel like poo left to bake on a hot sidewalk in the middle of summer. I really shouldn’t forget to take my high iron pre-natal vitamins for two days when I’m bleeding massively. At least things seem to be starting to calm down on the lady bidness front.
Oh, and the one doctor says it was probably another miscarriage. I don’t want to talk about it, so we aren’t. Ok? Good.
Speaking of Mr. Big Pants, he’d like to say hello:
Aaaaaaand, I’m out! I am officially unable to keep up with all of the blogs I like to read and my Hulu queue has 21 items. Oh, and I’m still finishing a paper that he wants to publish in July (that is a very short turnaround). It took a turn for the worse, but I really want to have it done by Monday at the latest. And I need a nap. Sam totally told me to take one. She’s awesome, so I feel that I must take this advice. Also, I stayed up way too late having deep thoughts with Sara, so I’m wiped out. Worth it, but I can’t do so many late nights in a row.
So, my lovely e-friends, am I crazy to take on two halfs? How exactly should I be spelling that anyways? Anyone else ever try alternative medicines that make them barfy? Tell me about your day!
