I'm not feeling enthusiastic about today yet tongue

* shower, wash hair, dress
* tidying
* dishes
* wash towels, even though it's raining???
* some movement / exercise / stretching

I may come back and add more once I've woken up a bit.

How was the orientation, Becky? And how are you, NCOT? How was the girlie day, Nanners?

Orientation was fine, but I forgot to take some things so I need to fax them to the office. My GPS also wouldn't accept the address so I couldn't rely on that to get there, which stressed me. I'm exhausted now, so I'll go to bed early and hopefully have an early day tomorrow to get some stuff done. Oh, and I need to get some black shorts to wear to work.

For Wednesday:
*wake up early..ish
*shower
*go fax things to office
*shop for black shorts
*work? don't know if I will be able to tomorrow if they get the fax tomorrow...I'll see
*hopefully GI will call me back about risk of taking anti-inflammatory so I can make an appointment with PCP or ortho about hand

I think that's all...can't think right now, so there might be more after I sleep.

Oh boy, that really doesn't sound fun at all. I vote for stopping off somewhere and getting yourself a really nice cup of coffee... bonus points if you get yourself a really gooey piece of cake as well.

I've spent most of today in bed, between my various commitments. Symptoms are building up again, as is pain, and I feel as if I may be going to be Very Unwell tomorrow.

Towels are washed but still in the machine: I think I might hang them tomorrow. Bad, I know, but hey...
Did a few minutes of everything else, too, and that's enough.

Vixen, i do NOT envy you moving a kid to uni. I hate moving to uni, i always ended up with too much stuff, and i accumulated so much that it would have taken us two trips to get it all, had we not managed to borrow an estate car. Hire a van to bring her stuff back, you'll probably need it!!

Ivy, i know just how you feel about not being able to get enthusistic. I'm not particularly impressed with today either! I hope you dont feel Very Unwell tomorrow. I shall have to get some kitten pictures up to cheer you up!

Becky, good luck finding some shorts. They had lovely ones on the market a few months ago. I almost got a pair, then remembered that i had no money spare and that would mean i had to shave my legs way more often!!

Wednesday TLC

* pray that royal mail doesnt loose my giro from the benefit office
* plan a trip into town to pay in giro (that fingers crossed will arrive)
* plan trip to hospital next week
* try to upload kitten photos for Ivy
* try to eat

I was due a payment today off the benefit office. No payment in my bank. I call them up, and they only autherised my payment yesterday, so they decided that the fastest way of me getting my payment, was to send me a giro in the mail. Trouble is royal mail sucks and usually delivers my mail to some-one elses house.
Bonus points go to me, who had to ask what a giro was. Aparrently its a cheque. Why they cant call it a cheque i dont know!

Today is the my last day home before I go back to work tomorrow. Today will be busy getting my B12 shot, maybe a pedicure, paying some bills. Of course, most important trying to stay calm and relaxed so that I can sleep well tonight to be ready for the big day tomorrow. Might have to add in some Tylenol PM so that I make sure I am well rested.

Yes Ivy, girly day was good! Although almost didn't get haircut because my tummy decided to act up. But all is okay now.

Ivy was watching Oprah on Monday and she gave all her audience a free 8 day trip to Australia. They had a representative from Australia tell the audience about their trip, and I was loving his accent. Then I started to giggle and said "Hey I bet Ivy sounds just like that:)" Had never thought of it before. Silly I know, but I just love the aussie accent. LOL

Lol Ivy, these things have to be done. I never thought that I would say this and I love having her home but equally I am looking forward to getting the house back to normal! Gonna refuel the car and check tyres later when we go out for a pizza(cheaper fuel in the city) Started the process of switching electricity suppliers(should save about £90 per year) Now have another month's supply of medication for son. Vet has given me a prescription for two months for the hound(would have liked 6 months!) but have worked out that by paying for prescription and ordering online(includ p&P) I will save £60.43 every two months(not to be sneezed at) Gone through the house collecting bits dd may have missed and depositing them in her room for her to pack.
Sorry that your symptoms are building again, it must be so frustrating, because you know what is coming and there is nothing you can do to really stop it. That is always my worry when taking dd back to uni-that ds will get bad and need to be picked up from school, which reminds me, another thing to do, find someone who would collect him if need arises(usual standby is away)
Choc, yes, she doesn't pack lightly! There is no way though that we are doing two trips! Fortunately the seats in the back of the car actually come out so I did manage to get everything in and home for the summer.
Hope your giro turns up(although Royal mail is pretty rubbish)
Becky, hope you found those shorts, although if you are anything like me when you don't want/need anything it is always available and when you do there aren't any in sight(typical)
Nanners-Good Luck for tomorrow, hope you enjoy your return.

NCofT-Where are you today ;)

Here :p

Fairly dreadful day yesterday. Massive row over car. The oil had nearly run out. Should be ****ing simple right? Just top it up with oil. But no, it had to end in another stupid, insane row. To cut a long story short, I put in another litre of oil this morning - contrary to my dad's advice yesterday - and the car was fine after that! The correct level showed on the dipstick and the car ran smoothly, or at least as smoothly as a Matiz is capable of running.

Sorry if I sound annoyed still. These sort of rows leave me wound up for days afterwards. I should've just walked away the instant it got nasty. Also, I know to check the oil regularly from now on, obviously!

That aside, today was a lot nicer. Drove down to my brother's with my mum, and went for coffee and cake with my mum, sister-in-law and two nephews. (I didn't have any cake. Not being virtuous, it's a part of my new diet. Namely 'The Eat **** All' diet. It's not fun but my stomach feels better on it.)

And now, after a dinner of mushroom soup and a bread roll with butter, I feel gently shattered :-/

PS: It sounds like you had a productive day. Nice job on getting all that done :p

@Ivy - Sorry to hear you are getting worse :( Hope it doesn't last long and you get better again soon.

NCOT its all good, at least you didn't do what my cousin did. She let her oil and water run out totally, so her engine seized up........twice! i mean, would you not learn the first time?
I'm on that diet too!! its not fun though!

me and mum watched An Ugly Truth which was hilarious and i have decided to go on a day trip somewhere next week ( should my money arrive) i'm thinking leeds. Even if i only make it to the train station, and i dont venture out into the city. I havent been to leeds since i was in a pushchair!
I'm actually kinda excited about it.

Lol Cars are never simple and I am ashamed to admit that when oh is home I am a terrible passenger seat driver :( Don't you find it is usually the stupidest of things that cause the biggest rows! But see, you showed them :)
'Only' wound up for days-I can go on forever especially if I know(lol) what was said was unjust I much prefer it when someone says " look I was out of order, i'm sorry" Must admit that I have had to say it myself on occassion but at least the air gets cleared and you can move on instead of mulling over exactly who said what.
I think I need to join you on that diet :D But the mushroom soup and roll sounds good!

@choc - blimey. Pretty certain I would learn the first time. I've only got the one car and don't particularly want to wreck it.

The diet is pretty miserable =/ It's truly horrible not being able to eat normally with other people. It's not so bad on my own, but when I'm with others I just want to eat like them. Oh well, at least we didn't stay for dinner at my brother's tonight. They were having roast lamb for dinner, and sticky toffee pudding with a luxury custard (which I chose <_<) for dessert. The custard I could eat on its own; it's beautiful. Maybe I could have custard for dinner one night... >_>

I've never been to Leeds, but the idea of a day trip sounds really good. I'd go for it!

@vixen - precisely. It usually is the most ridiculous, petty, small things which are the triggers for the biggest rows :-/

I get over individual rows after a few days normally, but I think the cumulative effect of many rows have affected me rather badly. I have turned into something of a nervous wreck. Probably doesn't do my Crohn's in the long run any good either. At any rate, I couldn't agree more: I far prefer it when somebody (including me if necessary) apologises. I won't go into details but my dad did something a few months ago, which he never apologised for and which I haven't forgiven or forgotten. I try not to consciously think about it, because it's a waste of energy, but it's there in the background and it makes me much less inclined to forgive him in general. There's no point talking to my dad about it because all he ever does is rationalise the blame onto other people. I can't be doing with it.

Phew. I'm sorry for the psychoanalysis. Our family is the biggest family of screw-ups you will see for a long time :|

The mushroom soup and bread roll was very good :p And surprisingly filling, although in terms of calories it wasn't a lot. Think I'll have a rice pudding. Bit late for it, but I have only had about 700 calories today, which isn't enough... :/

Hehehe, Nanners, I was thinking the other day that if I moved to Australia (or England too) that I'd fall in love with half the men there. I'm a sucker for an accent! SOOOOO sexy!

Was supposed to go look for shorts tonight, but I didn't. I have a pair I can wear for now, but I want another pair so I don't ruin the "good" ones. I must note that none of my clothes are expensive, but some clothes I refuse to get messed up making pizzas. I'll get around to finding another pair sometime. If ortho calls in a rx for me, I'll look at Walmart, then Kohls which is in the same shopping center. I have a credit on my Macy's account, so if I don't find a pair for cheaper, I may replace my "good" pair with a better pair of shorts then retire the pair to have for work.

Nanners, good luck going back to work. You were smart to start later in the week, that way you have only a couple days, then a break! I hope things go well on your first day back though! Can you rest while there? I don't know what you do, so don't know if you can sit, or your job requires moving around.

NCOT, just to let you feel better about things, I let my car run out of transmission fluid and killed the car...it cost me over $3000 to replace the transmission...OUCH! Oh, and of course the car died while I was driving to work, and in rain. That's a mistake I'm not ever going to make again!

Choc-where are the kitty pics? I wanna see some too!

Ivy-sorry you're feeling unwell :( That's no good. I'd wave my wand, but again, it'll just *POO* at you. I hope things start improving for you!

OK. Why did I just sprout wings and tentacles??? What did you do, Becky? And please undo it :-/

What sort of accent did this person have? Was he all Croc Dundeeish and Croc Hunterish? In which case, NO, I do not speak like that.

btw, you may like to know that the Australian taxpayers are forking out $3million for this little exercise, so there are mixed feelings about it. Implications are that we, not Oprah, are paying for the plane fares, but I'm not sure if that's true.

Sensible reply shortly, if I can: I'm off to shower and dress.

Uh oh! I'll rewave my wand again and see if it changes you back. If I don't hear from you soon, I'll call in someone with a working wand and have them fix you!

NCoT- Sorry but I am laying claim to the biggest family of screw ups. I am sure I could write a book on it and it would make the no 1 position(although it is all so unbelievable I am sure that people would think it fiction as opposed to fact) I don't even get rationalisation(sp) of the blame it is all deny deny deny. Hence cut all ties with mum and one sister last November(unbelievably it is history repeating itself(my mum/gran)) I understand about what you are saying about it being in the background though and with your condition it doesn't do you any favours.
Monkiray-my vote is for the Scottish Accent :)

Urgh, my internet went down for hours last night. Annoying! But I'm back now :p

@Becky - Good luck with the shorts hunting. I find clothes shopping a bit of a nightmare all round, as most stuff I don't like or it doesn't fit me. But it's nice if you do manage to find something that you're genuinely pleased with.

And serious ouch!! @$3000. Even translated into £'s, that's far more than what my car is worth. Touch wood I have been lucky with my car so far; in nearly 2 years it hasn't needed any expensive repairs except once. (And I blame my dad for that one <_<.)

@vixen - Ah, but I haven't brought my extended family into the picture yet <_<. But on a serious note, the fact that you are estranged from your mum, of all people, is very sad :-/
