Despite my preoccupation with an upcoming beta, there is a whole lot going on right now to occupy my brain.
First, progesterone b/w this morning. I have been stuffing suppositories like little Agustus stuffed candy into his mouth in the original Wi.lly W.onk.a movie. Let's hope I get a good number! I'd hate to have to do this more often.
Second, my new job. Remember? A while back I got a job offer and they agreed to let me start after my procedure? Welllllll....there's been a glitch. Let's just say I am currently "on hold." I have been in communication with the boss, who is still excited to hire me, but a few unanticipated obstacles have cropped up that are delaying things. It appears I will likely still get the job, but who knows.
Third, while I await word on the job, I received a phone call for a job I applied for in early May inviting me for a job interview. Um, okay. I am still technically unemployed and looking. This place wanted to interview me last Tuesday - the day we were on the road traveling to the Clinic. So they rescheduled me for this Thursday at 12:30. I think they are jamming me in during the lunch hour. But it would be a very cool job. This of course might pose timing issues with the other position, but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. At any rate, in order to prepare for the interview, I will spend much of today doing my homework and researching the agency.
Fourth, I have only gained 3 pounds since the Clinic forbade me from exercising - it's been since April! I was scared to death to step on the scale, but I did it yesterday and the number surprised me. BUT - those 3 pounds and everything else has sort of shifted. I never had a round, poochy belly. Round hips, yes. Belly? No. Now it seems I have a rounder midsection than I used to. I have one skirt suit that will fit, but only if I suck it in the whole time. Oh, that's going to be comfortable!
So you see, by the time I exhale and peel myself out of that suit, why, it will nearly be Friday!
