    I actually got dressed in the same room as Geek, so that didn't bug me. Mine hit as I linked arms with my mom and dad to leave the building and walk down the aisle.

    So tired. Was a little scared I'd fall asleep at the wheel. I paid for us ordering out last week, don't really want to do that again, but I'm exhausted. Wish I had nibble-worthy food. Not even enough energy to blend a pumpkin pie filling up.

    Happy to see Boyfriend using the tea tree oil on his foot without my prompting. I hope it's helping.

    I always forget that sometimes skipping meals = EXTREME EXHAUSTION. I felt better once I had food. Felt guilty for ordering out, but I needed sustenance quickly with minimal effort.

    Sleep: I was in bed around 9 PM. I made Boyfriend snuggle with me for a little so I could chat with him. I still snoozed the alarm until 7 AM and had a really hard time getting out of bed. I came in a little bit late so I could take my time this morning.

    Food: Maki rolls! More tonight. A friend has a gift card he wants to use up (a large one, I guess) so a bunch of us are meeting up in Harvard Square for dinner. I'll bring the $5 bill I have for tip contribution, I guess! Boyfriend cooked up some chix breast for us to use for lunches, so I have chix breast, broc, apple, & a banana for lunch. I had scrambled eggs for breakfast. I wasn't very hungry, and still am not. It's going to take more than one need of catch-up sleep for my appetite to regulate.

    Body: Without thinking, I stepped cautiously on the stairs this morning, but my knee doesn't hurt. Hallelujah! My calves have been really sore for the past couple of days. They also look bigger/more defined. I'm not complaining, but I have no idea why this happened! I didn't think the squats I did earlier this week would have that effect! The squats do seem to help with my core strength (ab definition) quite a bit, and I can feel it working my lower back, all of which I need, so that's great. Doing squats at home with the 15 lb kettlebell will be a good way to progress, I think. Taking it reeeeeeeeal slow.

    Supplements: I didn't poop yesterday (if you feel that this is TMI, I am sorry for you) so I took another teaspoon of Inositol last night, bringing me up for 3 for the day. I took one this morning & will take two tonight. I pooped this AM, so either 1000 mg of Vitamin C and 3 teaspoons of Inositol is effective and I needed that extra teaspoon last night, or not quite as effective, and I won't be able to go regularly on that dose. We'll see. I didn't have quite enough food before taking my multi & B-complex this morning & had some waves of nausea afterwards.

    Brain: I have been feeling slightly more anxious lately. I've been really irritable towards my supervisor. I don't have to deal with him much these days, but it seems like since he came back from his surgery (for colon cancer) in late November or early December, I have no patience for him. Some of it is because he is more spacey & short-tempered than he used to be, but I'm sure some of it is just me as well. I could be more patient. I just get tired of him complaining about how something ruining his work flow and asking me to find workarounds instead of dealing with it. I can't change Microsoft Office, dude! It is how it is! Learn to deal! I am fairly accommodating, as I should be in my position, with most people and their grievances with software, but he is by far the worst. I've found that developers tend to be the worst because they have a different vision of how things work/should work, since they work closely with software, instead of just working with the user-end experience like I do. For me, it is how it is. For them, they want to change/fix everything & get frustrated by it.

    Other: I have $10 to spend on Vitacost (on a $30+ purchase), and $10 to spend through Vitamin Shoppe (two $5 certificates, one from online purchases, one from in-store). I hope I can use both $5 certificates for Vitamin Shoppe at the same time. The only thing I think I'll need soon is Vitex, so I might splurge a little on some baking goods (almond or coconut flour).

    Weekend: Dinner out tonight, laundry & lazing about tomorrow, possibly dropping Boyfriend & his brother off at a bar Saturday night (Boyfriend can't drive with the aircast on, his bro doesn't have a valid license right now)... Looking forward to not having any obligations.

    Earlier, I realized that I was anxious & then calmed down. THIS IS SO WEIRD.

    Anyway, my day has been kind of busy so far. Nice way to end the week. Boyfriend says he feels 90% today, minus aircast, so that's excellent! He's been mostly okay lately, maybe a tad more frustrated than usual from the crutches & such, but overall, managing himself well.

    Boyfriend: No opening packages from fedex. Ya heard?
    Me: haha Okaayyyyy
    Boyfriend: Good, or i will send it back
    me: :-O
    Boyfriend: :-D
    Me: Is it Christmas yet?
    Boyfriend: ha
    Me: That's worse than "Sure"

    Sometimes I ask Boyfriend if he wants something or anything that requires a "yes" or "no" and he says "Sure". It drives me nuts because it doesn't sound like he cares or he's just agreeing to make me happy. I got him to understand the effect once, when I responded with "sure" (probably to something like, "Do you want to go see [new movie]?"). So, I don't think it's the ring, I only told him Tuesday which one I wanted. I have no idea what it is!

    Oh my! Catching up has been fun! I have entirely enjoyed the ring and baby name talk.

    My daughter's name is Makenna. Normally it's spelled McKenna, but I didn't want a Mc, or a Mickey. I want Makenna or Kenna. It's spelled wrong all the time. People (my grandmother, husband's aunt) always spell it with a C. Or they spell it MaKenna... Whatev.

    What about La-a. Not pronouced Laaa-ah... it's prounounced La-Dash-A. hahaha Heard that one on the radio. Then there's HashTag... not sure why ANYONE would name their kids with either of those names.

    My SIL named her son Declan, pronounced dec-lan. Those automated phone things that call to remind you of doctor's appointments always calls him de-clan. lol

    My wedding ring and engagement ring have been soldered together. That is pretty common around here. My rings "match". I have a 3 stone engagement ring in white gold b/c I don't like yellow gold. Makes me think of brass finishes and those just seem dated and cheap. My wedding band is a simple band with channelized diamonds, with a curve to it so it fits around the setting on the engagement band. For our 10 year wedding anniversary, I want another ring like my wedding band to go on the other side of my engagement ring.

    Truth be told, the "wedding band" is actually marketed as an anniversary band, and the 3 stone ring is supposed to signify "past, present and future" (per the marketers) so it's not technically supposed to be an engagement right... but they fit together perfectly and are usually sold as a set. Figure THAT one out... lol

    Here's my engagement ring: Kay - Three-Stone Diamond Ring 1/2 ct tw Princess-cut 14K White Gold

    Here's my wedding band: Kay - Diamond Enhancer Ring 1/2 ct tw Round-cut 14K White Gold

    They're both on clearance now... isn't that special. lol There's also a pic on the second link that shows the two of them together. Except my engagement ring is princess cut and the pic shows standard cut. *swoon* I love wedding/engagement ring shopping.

    I didn't realize you wore it on the right hand. I always wore/wear mine on the wedding finger (left hand.) Then again, down here most women wear both on the same finger, with the wedding ring closest to the palm. Southern vs. Northern things, I guess.
    It's an Iowa thing too. Wedding ring "closest to the heart".

    the ring sounds wonderful and I'm sure it will fit you perfectly Can't wait to see a picture of it *hint*!!
    Mine asked me to marry him while we were walking through the mall after picking out my ring and then applying for credit to buy it. He said "if I buy you this ring, will you marry me?" My answer was "well, yeah"... then I realized that was his proposal and I got all excited.

    Tomi (or, Tom-me, since I always pronounced your name as Toe-me in my head - by the way, what an awesome reason to be named like you were - in rememberance of your father. *aw*), I would have bawled at that very moment if Brad had asked me again at the altar. How sweet.

At $40k, I think we could make it work, if he was also working, which means I need to be $40k+ if it's just going to be me. Ssiiigghh. Probably not getting there anytime soon as a Help Desk Specialist.

    Hence why I'm looking into A+ and Network+ certification. Security+ would be good for gov't gigs, but first things first. I'm not good at exams.
    I asked a guy here at work (also a help desk specialist). He hasn't gotten back to me yet, but I want to say he makes in the ballpark of $50k a year. And housing is MUCH cheaper. You could totally come live here and raise your spawn! we've even got good schools!

    I am soooo excited to see a pic of your ring. I can't wait!

    Haha, love your enthusiasm Jenn! I'm with you on the white gold/silver feelings. Yellow-gold doesn't look good on my skin tone (my feelings, anyway). Plus I have this thing about matching jewelry. I am not about to take out all 4 earrings and the nose ring to match. I'm still planning on getting my eyebrow pierced again and that will be silver too! I have always loved silver (looking) jewelry.

    I think my current position has a lot of room for growth. Being the sole help desk person at the office has its perks. It's unlikely that another person will be hired on in my department at this location, so I get to learn a lot of maintenance stuff. I've already (recently & at my 1 year review last May) started expanding my responsibilities. I don't think I'll get a 12% raise again this year, but I think it won't be a tiny one either . Unfortunately, I don't think the company would be interested in relocating me, so either Boyfriend needs to be okay with settling here, or we'll both be looking elsewhere in the next 5 years.

    [edit] On the way home, I realized it's Boyfriend's payday, so he might've ordered the ring today. No Fedex yet.

    You're making me so happy that my internal baby clock is broken But it's good that you're thinking about expenses and such- so many young couples don't. I mean, having babies is just what you do, right?

    Now, if he's going to be a kept man, why are you sending him back to school? I mean, he couldn't need that much learnin' to cook and clean and chase rugrats, right?

    Valid points! I'd love the opportunity to be the SAHM or free-lance, or run a small tech support business or do contract work or something, so I hope that we can trade off with the working someday. I can't imagine what it would be like to return to the work force after several years of raising chillens, but I'm sure many have done it before me.
