I'm getting too old for this...

Really? No one wanted to comment on my last post about Ashton Kutcher? Well....ok...

So, I got blood test results back from the doc. Apparently I have extremely high insulin levels. So, I have to fast and go back in Monday morning to test again. I mean, dang. A girl can't catch a break. All I wanted was for the good ol' gyno to tell me there's no apparent reason for me not getting knocked up, give me some pills to help that along, and bing bang boom - preggers. It really just can't be that simple, can it?

Well, the interwebs says high insulin levels can cause ringing in your ears. It's all coming together!!! I seriously, not even joking, have had CONSTANT ringing in my ears for like a month now. I had already set an appointment at my normal doctor for next Friday to see what was up with that before I got these results back. This insulin shit most likely explains it. So, we'll see what these blood tests on Monday say. I'll probably just be told to change my diet, exercise more, and it'll level itself out. Probably. Way to go, fatty!

Anyway, I have nothing important to say here. I'm tired.

When Ashton tweets, you answer.

Hey, remember when Ashton Kutcher beat CNN to 1 million on Twitter? And remember when he promised to "ding dong ditch" Ted Turner? Well, Kelli and I promised ourselves that when Ashton was in Atlanta and he asked the Atlanta "tweeps" to come witness the event, we would go. Luckily, she and I were wrapping up a Wednesday night Girls Night when Ashton told people to meet him at the fountain in Centennial Park. We were 3 miles away. How could we not go?

Strangely, we know one of Ted Turner's personal assistants. So, we called another friend that was with him and they were headed down to the park too. They scoped it out to make sure we wouldn't waste our time going. 5 minutes later, we were standing literally 5 feet from Ashton and Demi.

I won't go into detail about the happenings, but it was pretty cool. I snapped a few shots from my iPhone, but of course if anything in the picture is moving it's going to be blurry, so this is one of the best ones I got.

Naturally, Ashton is at least 1,000 times better looking in person, as is Demi Moore. Tiny too. Demi, not Ashton.

No, I didn't get to "P-Diddy Poke" them like I was able to a few years back with Mr. Combs, but being so close to them was cool enough.

Now, I'll stop sounding like a super fan and go back to my business.

When you realize it's a pattern and not a phase...

In an effort to get out of this HORRIBLE mood I'm in, I'm going to speak of only good things.

1. I registered for 2 out of 3 classes that I have left before my actual program starts. Just 1 more class next quarter, then 5 more quarters of full-time student-ing, and I'll be able to FINALLY move my way into the medical field. Really, it's been a long time coming. When I was little I wanted to be a mom and a nurse. Basically, my mother. It was only a matter of time.

2. Full-time student-ing is scary. Student loans are scary. But I am MORE than excited to start that part. 9-6 schedules really break you down.

3. I've had a constant ringing in my ears for 2 and a half straight weeks now. I plan on seeing a doctor about it soon. I suppose I shouldn't really be putting this on a list of "good" things. Let's can I twist this to make it good? How about, when I go deaf from this ringing in my ears I'll learn sign language and that's pretty cool. Right? Sure.

4. My nephew, Cohen, was dedicated at church on Sunday. I really can't even explain how cute he is. I think it's impossible to put his cuteness into words. Anyway, it was a cool day. He got his little new testament bible that we all got when we were dedicated as babies. Then there was dinner at my sister-in-law's parent's house. It was a nice day. And being back in a baptist church after all these years was funny. So....typical, I guess you could say.

5. My weekly girls night plan didn't work out so much. But, Kelli and I decided to go through with it anyway even if people flake out every single week. At least that way we can still see each other and the one other random girl that decides to make it. I am also having a date with Amanda on Thursday evening. We're going to eat pizza, drink some dranks, and talk talk talk. There's so much we have to catch up on and we're almost always interrupted when we try to talk in a public place. So, this time we're hanging out at David and Tanya's where she's house-sitting while they're on their cruise.

And...that's all. I must remember to water my garden this evening. The rain hasn't been keeping up enough.

Every day.

I'm in a funk. Have been for several days now. I guess I just get kind of worn down sometimes. I know it happens to everyone. I just wish I could snap out of it already.

I was talking to my friend, Amanda, yesterday about marriage. She congratulated me on my one year anniversary and it got us talking about the whole marriage thing in general. She said "You win!" I just laughed and said "Yes, I win." She went on to say that she can only imagine that having someone unconditionally love you for the rest of your life would feel like winning the lottery. I've never looked at it that way, but it's true. I won the lottery. Not only do I have that unending love, but I never have to go through anything by myself again unless I choose to. I mean, that's a pretty sweet deal.

Ready, already.

Today is my one year anniversary being married to Chris. If we weren't having such horrible weather, we were going to see the Braves play tonight. Instead, we're getting another estimate on replacing out HVAC, going to check out a new restaurant near where we live, then Chris is going to watch a hockey game. Exciting, huh? Well, we just can't make big plans or anything because we don't have the money right now and there are just so many other things we need to get done soon. We already got one estimate on the air conditioner, but we thought we'd get another to compare. I have a feeling they'll be around the same amount....equally racking up our credit card that we just paid off.

I took the day off today because I had another Dr. appointment. They just have to run some blood tests to check my hormone levels and whatnot. I'm impatient with all this stuff. We've been trying to get preggers for a year now. Just give me some drugs and let me pop out some twins already. I just hate the whole process of tests and scans and wait this long and come back in two months and blah blah blah. Ugh.
