Western vs. Eastern

So, I went to see a doctor (we'll call him Dr. D for dick)Image and video hosting by TinyPic at Kaiser Permanente today, had an annual and discussed issues I'm having with my cycle. I tried to explain to him I've been tracking my temps for the past 6 cycles and all he did was glance at two of them, then threw them all in the garbage. Are you for fucking real? No he didn't just negate my feelings/process!

He begins to tell me (not ask, but tell me) that I shouldn't chart. He says it gives false info & could quite possibly be the cause of my cycles. Um, ok. Then he proceeds to snap at me twice while my feet are sky high in the cold stirrups. I seriously felt like I needed to defend myself and snap back. How rude can one stranger be, especially when the other is half naked. UGH.

Eastern- Then on to the acupuncturist.

So, as soon as I walk in, she makes nice, simple conversation... then asks me how I'm feeling and what symptoms I've been having (insomnia, backache, anything). She asks how my cycle looks this month with my temps, and genuinely got excited when I told her it appears I O'd. She then asks if I check CP and CM to back it up and if I used TCOYF, I said yes, but told her I use FF to chart. (she made a note to look it up saying she hadn't heard of it before) haha

We spend about 15 mins just going over things before we got down to business. I 'heart' her. She made me feel so much better after Dr. D.

Need S.L.E.E.P

I don't know what my deal is. I'm so fucking cranky. I've been lacking in the sleep department big time, but c'mon really? I feel so bad because I've been so negative (even just driving home from work).


Maybe tonight I'll turn in early.

Sorry to anyone and everyone I've been mean to :(

The Twilight Saga

Call me a child, teenybopper, or tween- I don't care.
I absolutely fell in love with the series. I have always enjoyed vampire literature (Ann Rice, Laurell K Hamilton etc) but this kind of kicked it up a notch in my book. I never understood what the hype was about until I actually read the books. The writing itself isn't the best I've read, but there is something undeniable about how she draws you in. Her fan base is so diverse, don't knock it till you try it. I sit here now reading the series for a second time and counting down the months till Eclipse.

Flame away.

Personal Challenge

So,its been a while, but my life is just not that interesting to write about sometimes.
So, my New Years "resolution" is to get my lazy bum into the gym at a minimum of 4 days a week. So far so good. My ideal goal is to lose weight, but I just want to feel better in general. I have not liked who I have become (gaining 15 or so lbs since June). I figured if I put it out there... weight and all, then maybe I can be accountable.
Sooooooo, starting weight 172 lbs (eeeek)

So our baby has a newly adopted brother...

Meet Kimosabe.
Part Bengal, part tabby (so we're told)
