I'm so glad to be back after a crazy week last week! You usually have to pry me away from quick takes on Fridays (which is probably why I'm consistently late to work once a week), so I'm glad life slowed down... a bit!... so I could join back up this week!
Sooo... guess what I learned to do this week? INJECT MYSELF! The caps are more shock than excitement, in case you are confused. I have to inject myself with hcg 4 times a month to replace the hormones that my body should be making, and is only pitifully making. Hcg sound familiar? Yep, it's the hormone women make during pregnancy and what the urine tests check for. But, crazy of crazies, it can also help low levels of estrogen and progesterone. Who knew??? Maybe you did, but I didn't. My estrogen is kind of borderline and my progesterone is very low, so hopefully this does the trick. (THANK YOU, DOCTOR, FOR GIVING ME REAL HEALTHCARE AND NOT THROWING THE PILL AT ME!!!! *ahem*) Anyway, the nurse talked me through it and watched me do it at her office, and now I've completed 2 at home. For some reason it hurts more at home than it did at the office. Or maybe I just like sympathy. I'm rockin' my very own biohazardous medical waste box. SWEET!
Mover over kleenex. There's a new box in town.
I go on call tonight. BOO! Steven is off this Sunday (of course he would be off when I'm on call!) so hopefully the phone stays quiet at least that day. Being on call forces me to stay home and relax, which most of the time isn't *too* much of an issue anyway, but tomorrow I'm going to have a pj's day and do a whole lotta nothing. That's at least one thing being on call is good for! Sunday we have church and lunch out, but we're going to hang out at home the rest of the day, so hopefully my phone is quiet for a solid 2-3 hours.
Buttercup went to the vet this week and Steven took her all by himself as his first Super Official Daddy Duty. She got a glowing report, even though her weight dropped from 5.5 lbs to 5 lbs. The vet isn't concerned, but this mommy wants her to fatten up a tiny bit. She's just a small cat, but it still makes me nervous! Her 11 year old teeth are STILL not in need of a cleaning. *So proud*
Speaking of cats.....
Time for my weekly question! Sorry to exclude you guy(s), but this one is for the ladies. Do you have a brand of affordable loose powder makeup that you use and love? I've been using Bare Minerals matte and I LOVE it. But at $27 and me using it more frequently than I used to, I'm thinking I might need to cut it out. But I'll go to Target and buy the cheaper stuff, and spend double trying to find a texture/color that I like. Plus, you know ELF cosmetics? Yeah, I used that today because I was out of my Bare Minerals and had to take an allergy pill before going to work. I'm a wee bit sensitive skinned. Any suggestions?
