    Don't rub it!

    Pumpkin ice cream sounds as if it is worth a pimple.

    I don't consider it a flaw that I can't pass up trying anything pumpkin flavored . It's made by Richardson's, which is a local ice cream company I think. It tastes like pumpkin pie. The guy who scooped it told me it was great and he did not lie!

    other thoughts:

    Baby stuff - Seeing deals for baby stuff or maternity wear in my Zulily newsletter & articles on fertility stuff on blogs still stings a bit. But not as bad as last week. It'll pass.

    Cycling gear - Should arrive Wednesday. Hulky will inquire about the car repairs soon so we can get that taken care of before it's too cold for me to tolerate cycling.

    Shopping - I have had the urge to BUY BUY BUY lately. Hulky is picking up more expenses right now since he just got paid & didn't need all of his book stipend. I don't need these things, I just really want them. I think it's just the response to such extreme budget restriction as we had in August & September. That said, Hulky freaked out over the pizza stone (in a very good way) and I'm really glad that I got it for him.

    I got a red t-shirt for $3 for my Wonder Woman costume, a blue skirt that I'll put white star stickers on (have to get sticker sheets to make my own), gold ribbon stuff to embellish the t-shirt a bit, some gold cord to wrap around my waist or carry (as the lasso), and some $10 red flats that need moleskine so they don't fall off my feet. Casual Friday Woman Woman . I'll see if my mom has some old costume jewelry so I can add more gold to the ensemble, and I might spray-paint a headband.

    I have been missing our pancake Saturdays. This recipe looks like a good one to try! I have a can of Trader Joe's organic pumpkin that can be sacrificed for the cause.

    Gut - I'm eating lunch soon and desperately hoping that eases things. I felt okay this morning, but now I have that awful full-of-poop feeling. I took some Ester-C that I've had at my desk forever in the hopes that it would speed things along. I'm getting some random pelvic pain too...

    Hormones - When I was getting all sad last week, I decided to start taking Vitex again. It's just a whim/a feeling. I'll probably stop once this bottle runs out. I think I'm on day 5 of Vitex and my libido came back yesterday.

    White star stickers...great idea! The pjs are $36. That is too much for one wearing.

    My other idea was to get some jeans & bleach star shapes onto them, but I didn't think I'd wear them after that. The skirt was $20 and I'll wear it again. I'll do a loose stitch on the t-shirt so I can take the embellishments off after. Not sure about the shoes, since they don't fit well, but it was an acceptable compromise to me. The whole thing will be under $40 and I'll wear most of the parts again

    I am trying to smother the hysterical sobs that are threatening to crawl out of my throat. I don't want to ruin an otherwise good mood. Hulky's income is entirely his living stipend via the Yellow Ribbon program. Just like that, we are back to penny pinching. With whatever extra money I have this month & whatever Hulky is left with at the end of the month, we are just going to have to hope that will cover rent. I think Coach would give us time if there's a guaranteed date that we'll get his benefits by, but no way of knowing right now.

    Fuck fuck fuck

    BM - My gut was very active yesterday, I guess I'll keep taking the mag citrate until I find the right balance of supplements. [edit] Type 5 late morning.

    I woke up with a sore throat this AM. I also got very hungry right before leaving for work so I drank a warm glass of goat milk. The milk is gone now, I won't buy anymore for at least a week. I want to see if I can keep myself adequately fed with solid food. Hulky cooked up a bunch of meat yesterday so I have lunch for at least another day w/o making more soup, but I did get more soup makings yesterday. The new Whole Foods in town is nice, basically the same layout as the last grocery store. I picked up some DGL (licorice supplement) and it is too delicious for its own good. I think black licorice is my new candy of choice.

    My nose still hurts! Hulky said the pain I'm describing sounds like something broke, but I should have had swelling or raccoon eyes if that had happened. Maybe I just bruised the bone? At least the rest of me is much less sore. Just above my ankles on the back of my legs (not really calf territory yet) is sore, but I can tell that's from squats. It's a good feeling.

    Sleep - Once again, got to bed late, but the sleep was pretty fulfilling. I'm taking two tablets of Theanine Serene (a full dose) every night. If I can just get to bed on time, I'm sure I'll feel more awake! I snoozed my alarm this morning and was very slow.

    I'm sure I'll write more later.

    My throat hurts more. Stupid post nasal drip. This is either continued punishment for my weekend transgressions or more seasonal changes. If that's the case, the Allegra isn't working.

    Blegh, I am feeling grumbly. I am determined not to miss any work this month since I missed several days a couple of weeks ago.

    Aww I hope you feel better soon!

    Ps. Have you tried making your own pumpkins butter and making pancakes/cheesecake out of that? Or maybe put the butter on everything.

    Pps. Wonder Woman sounds awesome!

    Never made pumpkin butter! Been thinking of doing that instead of applesauce as Christmas gifts this year. Or apple butter. I don't know if my family would use any of the -butters, but I know they'd love the applesauce again.

    I do want to cook pumpkins this year, haven't done that before either.
