I wish I had something to say.

I am reading Loud in the House of Myself: Memoir of a Strange Girl by Stacy Pershall. It's a little weird to read my friend's life on printed pages. I much prefer the stories coming out of her mouth in her adorable voice. But you should all read it. Go on. It's a quick read.

I haven't read an actual book with pages in a long while. It's kind of nice, although I've gotten used to not having to turn pages. (Thank you, Kindle.) But I didn't want the Kindle edition. I want to keep this book. It's kind of like having Stacy next to me, but less fun.

Poo. I miss her.

That Twilight book is calling me.

I know I will regret it if I stay up late reading, because Punk has a cold and has been getting crap sleep (which of course means I have been getting crap sleep), but I don't care. I am going to go read.

So there.

I am so, so tired. I thought I had kicked this cold but I feel like another cold is trying to piggyback on top of it. Either that, or the lingering cough is just bothering my throat. I hope it's the latter. I woke up early this morning (6:30) and couldn't go back to sleep, so maybe that's the culprit. Although I have to get up early tomorrow because I am a damned fool.

I usually have 2-3 hours of appointments on Fridays and leave at 1pm. Tomorrow's schedule looks like this: 8-10 assessment, 11-12 day care visit, 12-1 home visit, 1-3 assessment, 3-4 home visit. *dies*

I got last-minute cancelled for my last visit tonight so I was able to entertain Ms. Hannah Banana while her parents went to Parents' Night at her school. I read her Neil Gaiman's children's books and they were a big hit. She loved The Wolves in the Walls so much that I lent it to her. Sharing the Gaiman love at a young age! Because I had Teh Hannah, I didn't feel like doing Teh Cooking, so we ordered pizza. I need to stop eating crap food BIG TIME. However, I ordered a salad too and gorged on that first so I didn't overeat pizza. That has worked pretty well for me lately.

Of course, I had small pieces of TWO birthday cakes at work today - one at lunch after a kid's birthday and another at a home visit for a baby's first birthday. I didn't want to eat the second one but you just can't say no to food with Vietnamese families. As it is, I think I kind of insulted the mom by not eating the whole piece. Sigh.

I'm back to nightly shooting up in the gut. Good times. I am a fertility junkie.

Today at the lunch table, one of my coworkers said that I go out of my way to wear shirts that show off my boobs. She was totally kidding, but heck, for ANYONE to say that about me? Weird. (What's weirder, I guess, is that I /do/ have a number of boob shirts these days.)

Also, it's supposed to be 100+° on Wednesday. I am mentally going down my list of clients for the day to think of who has air conditioning. Normally I hate air conditioning but dude, 103.

Speaking of air conditioning, we used our central air for 7-8 days TOPS last month and our bill was $155. It is normally about $45. This is sheer insanity. I imagine we will need to use it tomorrow and Wednesday (where it will run continuously, I'm sure), and we ran it while we were away in case it got too hot for the cats. I am scared of another big bill. Where on earth is this money supposed to come from? Aie.

We were supposed to close on Dad's house today. PSYCH! This is the house that will not go away. I am so glad I didn't end up cancelling everything and taking a day off to go down there. That would have been teh annoying.

Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides is a really good book! I have about 200 more pages to read before Book Club next Monday, but it is really enjoyable. Tonight, Coworker Kristine and I sat on the patio at The Clam Box on Wollaston Beach and read for a good long while. We each read about 100 pages. It was awesome - books on the beach at sunset!

I can't believe we might actually start TTC again in a couple of weeks. It seems like it's been so long since we've done anything, since we sat out the last two cycles and I have longish cycles. It doesn't seem real to go back to all of that.

I am having major motivational difficulties this morning. I can't seem to leave the couch, and I really think I only left the bed because I needed a quick breakfast to take my morning meds. And I've been on the couch ever since.

They've recently re-released The Outsiders on DVD with a new beginning and a new end that are supposed to be closer to the book. It's been so long since I've seen the original film (although I have it on VHS so I could put it in and compare) but I know that they added the "family court" scene and they didn't have Randy coming to the Curtis house after the whole Windrixville incident.

The Outsiders was one of my favorite books ever when I was little. I think I read the book for the first time in the summer Grade 4, when my brother had it for 7th Grade summer reading. I remember thinking how OLD all of the kids were - teenagers, young adults. I read the book for Grade 7 also and had the same feeling. I ended up revisiting the book after I;d graduated from high school and was struck how I was still feeling their age even though I'd surpassed some of the younger characters. When I was in Grade 4, 14 seemed SO OLD!

So yeah, I had a good Clomid weep over the whole "Nothing Gold Can Stay" scene and then again later during the Johnny death scene. So hopefully that's all out of my system.

I really need to get off my booty and move off this couch. There's a bunch of stuff around here that needs to be done and I'd like to make some sort of grocery list after. I can't lay here like a housecat ALL day, can I?

I pre-ordered Harry Potter 6 for Jen (and me) through Target but we won't be able to pick it up until tomorrow. And then Jen gets to read it first. And then me.

SO DON'T SPOIL ANYTHING, OKAY? Spoilers make the baby Jesus cry.

The Management

Slytherins are too ELITE for spoilers.
