A Day Off

Wow… so even though I’m supposed to be working on a side bookkeeping job today, this is officially my first “free” day in ages, thanks to a great friend of mine that is doing a special guest appearance bartending for me tonight so I can have a night at home. So far I’ve slept, read blogs, slept, watched DVR, slept, and am finally blogging. I really need to get to that bookkeeping. At any rate, here’s a rundown of my crazy life lately…

Sept 30 – My final day at my old desk job. With the perspective I’ve gained over the past three weeks, I’d like to kindly say that my ex-boss can go jump off a fucking building. I’ve tried to end things on a good note, but 19 days later I’m seeing that it’s not possible. Hoping that in the next day or two I’ll be able to never talk to the woman again.

Sept 30 – Oct 4: My parents were in town. It was awesome. Love when they visit, and love them!

Oct 4 – 6: Frantically worked on getting things organized at the new job. It’s a Sports Bar & Restaurant and we were opening our doors for the first time on the 7th. I’m basically running the bar half, so I was working on ordering liquor, finding good waitstaff, organizing the bar, etc.

Oct 7-10: Visit from honeymoon friends. First time DH has seen them since our honeymoon (Sept08) and first time I’ve seen them since May 09. So awesome to have them out here!

Also on Thurs Oct 7: Soft opening at the new restaurant. No advertising – hoping we wouldn’t get our butts kicked so we could get our feet under us. In a mixed blessing, we are packed. All night.

I worked the 7th and 8th and took the 9th off so that I could have one evening with my friends who were in town. Brought them to the airport the morning of the 10th, and went straight back to work the afternoon of the 10th.

I’ve worked every night since. It’s been busy as hell for the most part – which is GREAT – but which also means I’m exhausted and out late and not seeing nearly enough of my husband. I was also working on tying up loose ends at my old job and getting my Associate Broker license transferred. Not enough minutes in the day. In the  midst of all this, my ex-boss is pulling some crazy ass bullshit that I am totally over dealing with.

Oh, and did I mention that the job my husband was supposed to work on for the next 6-7 months fell through last week? Thank God for unemployment, but still, it’s a major blow to our income, and that sucks.

At any rate, I didn’t take my temp this morning b/c I worked until 2am last night and had some drinks and completely slept through my 5:45 alarm, but here’s a pic of my OPKs from CD23-CD28…

…so I THINK maybe I’m going to finally ovulate. I’m on CD29… but we’ll see. My temps are so damn bizarre this cycle. I’m also out of OPKs, so I didn’t take one today. Sucks that life has been so busy that TTC has been on the back burner, but it’s still been 100% worth it to get out of the hell hole job I was in.

On a side note, I won another giveaway from A over at Remember All The Way. Thanks A!
