  • If the doctor who prescribed the pill to me back in 1998 would've explained that while taking the pill to regulate my cycle, I could get pregnant, I would have never taken the damn thing. I called him when I got pregnant and quit his ass.

    • I have a friend who found out she was 20 weeks pregnant while getting the shot. She started having pain in her side so she went to the doctor. He couldn't find anything wrong with her so he sent her to the hospital for further testing. Ultrasound inidicated she was 20 weeks pregnant... oops. She now has 5 kids of her own (all boys - one set of twins) and is married to a guy with two kids (both boys) of his own. Between them, they share 3 kids (the twins and youngest boy). Her twins were BARELY a year old when she found out she was pregnant again.

      • Mrmph. *grumblegrumblesnarl* So much for that good news I should've gotten yesterday. Maybe today.
        In other news, I stopped using face soap, as I ran out. Started using my body soap instead (y'know, the homemade stuff I buy at the Ren Faire.) The peeling at the tip of my nose and dry areas of my face finally cleared up after that. Coincidence? I think not. Even the "natural" gentle crap, like Burt's Bees and Yes To, is too drying for my face. Hey, at least what works is cheaper in the long run. Now I just need to nut up and go back to poo-less, or at least only shampooing with Yes To Carrots once a week.
        Have I been eating crappy these past several days? Kinda. Usually it's getting snacky after dinner, leading to the invasion of the Fruity Pebbles knockoffs (hey, it's GF, at least) or chips and salsa (again, GF, but I shoulda used veg instead.) The rest of the time, I'm primal, so, 20%, but it still feels off.
        Now that the primavera is gone, there is something I really, REALLY should do (besides quitting the 20% crap.) I need to drop the dairy. (Well, aside from butter and maybe cream.) I think I'll ease my way into it. Drop the liquid dairy and fresh cheeses for a couple weeks (yogurt, milk.) If that doesn't solve it, I'll drop the aged cheeses. If that doesn't solve it, fuck it. I'm not giving up butter, too lazy to make ghee, too cheap to buy ghee, and you'll pry my rare cream use out of my cold dead fingers. I think dropping the fresh cheese and milk will likely solve the lactose intolerance, at least to a reasonable amount. Those are the two known culprits.

        • My snacky-feelings are usually because one of my macros is off. Usually fat. A few times, it's been helped by adjusting my mood support supplements.

          • Umm.. yay? I just got a phone call for an interview tomorrow with one of the retail jobs I applied for. Not the phone call I was hoping for, but if I get it, it'll bring in money until I can get something better. Probably not enough money to even survive, but at least more than nothing.
            (It didn't hurt that their employment questionnaire was so transparent I could've used it as a window, so I gave them answers they wanted while not completely lying.)

            • Hooray for an interview - even if it's not very much money and is a job outside what you want to do... money is money and some is better than none...

              Soap dryness... I've started washing my face again - hadn't been for a while b/c I was on a no soap thing for a while.... and I've started developing dry patches again. They occur every fall/winter as the air gets colder but I can't help but wonder if soap isn't part of the problem. I use Olay body bars (because they're free so the price is right), but I might stop as I just finished up a bar today. In the meantime, I need to bust out the coconut oil to remoisturize my face til the soap stops wrecking it's havoc.

              But, then again, something is making my scalp itch like mad (for the last couple weeks) and coincidentally, my diet has sucked for the last FEW weeks, so maybe my itchy scalp and flakey face skin are caused by jacked up diet. Possible hypothesis to test... is it weather related, soap related or diet related?? hmmm... I think I hear my 90 day journal calling me (which I haven't used for about 10 days... lol)

              • EEK! I just did some research into job satisfaction, pay, and turnover rate and it scared the hell out of me. Supposedly, the quotas are outrageous and if you don't meet them you're fired or they cut your pay 10%. Not to mention flagrant civil liberty abuse and no respect for their employees. I'm not finding ANYTHING positive that doesn't sound like another corporate line. Honestly thinking about not showing, I don't need another resume stain.

                • What retail company is it? That would be a rough situation. Yucky.

                  • Dillard's. I'm going to go in for the interview. I figure I can always turn down whatever offer they make.

                      • Made pumpkin pie filling for a snack again. 1/2 c cream or coconut milk, 2 tbsp butter, 1 c pumpkin puree, 1-2 eggs, spice and honey to taste (I used cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and cloves.) Mix well, nuke until the right consistency (2-3 min in my overpowered microwave). If you don't nuke it for as long, it's more like a pudding.

                          • So if Dillard's doesn't work out, leave them off your resume. If it shows up and someone asks, explain that you changed your mind and decided no to work there or something and so left it off. Just my opinion, but I don't think you need to put every babysitting or other crappy just for money job on your resume.

                            • If I decided to work retail, I'm leaving it off my resume. There's a reason my experience section is headlined "related experience." If they ask why the long gap, I'll tell them the truth: I couldn't get an engineer job, so I worked retail to pay the bills.

                              • Woke up with a headache, almost certain it's related to the Chinese buffet we had last night. Was I primal? 50/50. Could I have stayed 100%? Probably. My GI tract is letting me know it didn't appreciate the wheat, and my throat gunk is letting me knowing the soy and cheese weren't appreciated either. mrmph. Stupid body and not evolving at the rate of human society.
                                Interview is in a couple hours. yay. Hopefully, they'll at least pay me what I need to make bills. Doubt it though. I'm also expecting to get a question like "sell me this pen" or such bullshit. Dude, if you don't need it or even minimally want it, no salespitch in the world will make you buy it on it's own. I'll try anyways, but I see no point in pressuring someone to buy something they don't want even a little. Upselling and complimenting are one thing, but acting like a used car salesman is another.
                                Today is also an "I hate people" day, mostly because
                                of the headaches and having to get up and train the neighbors dogs with a water hose repeatedly. I'll keep doing it, too. Don't want Fluffy to freeze? Teach the fucker not to bark. So cold the hose froze over? I'll shoot it with a cheap water gun I fill in the house. I'm tired of being patient and tolerant. If they won't use their approved methods to train their damn dogs, I'll train them with water and being cold. I don't care how inbred and stupid a dog is, discomfort and surprise will train it like a Skinner rat. (Then again, I'm working against pure bred Dalmation and Pomeranian genes, so I may be wrong. Neither are exactly known for being intelligent.)
                                'S ok. I've learned over the years how to put on a fake smile for an interview and have the interviewer eating out of the palm of my hand.
