Mrs. Flinger: A work in progress

UPDATE TO Mrs. Flinger October 16, 2015

Because the Universe has a wicked sense of humor, after this delcaration, my blog threw up all over my last upgrade.

So I'm starting over using Craft. Turning 40 and kid entering Jr High next year, sometimes it's just time for a change. These archives will still exist in the way the last child goes off to college and their room is the same for 20 years, but it's just time to move forward.

Since I can’t reach my doctor… Jul 25, 2005

#got pee sticks?

Y’all.. I hurt. Not like crampy hurt.. but hurt. Like knife-in-the-ovary hurt. Like “Helloooooo Uterus!” hurt. I don’t normally *feel* my uterus. But I am now. And the emotions? PLEASE! So far, I’ve cried at Dizzy Tangerine, Erin’s, Seuss’s, and Mama-C-Ta‘s blogs today. TODAY. *sigh*

I quote Mr. Flinger, “I know that the stick says.. but you’re pregnant.”

Which reminds me… How has marriage changed since having a child? ‘Cause after all this emotional crap and paranoia/freeky mommishness over LB, it’s just not the same.

Issues.. oh, so many issues Jul 25, 2005

So, I upgraded to EE 1.3 because suddently my site wasn’t requiring a log in. WHAT?! I know I know. Two things about the log in. First, I don’t want other judgy eyes or people who wouldn’t understand what my blog is for to read it. And second, y’all left comments with the safe feeling that it’s under a passworded blog. So when it comes up without one? Yea, I freaked.

If you came yesterday and didn’t need to log in, can you let me know? I’m not sure exactly when it all was open.

I took down a couple of posts for the moment that would concern me if they were read by some people. I’m working on the issue. I *might* go to a different system where you’d have to log in to see all of these posts (and/or any more personal posts) and new non-personal posts would become public. Make sense? No? Yea, I know.. me either.

I’ll keep y’all updated on my issue. I have so many.. I swear.. I’ll let you know them all. ‘Cause they’re JUST that interesting. [snort]

Still negative.. and still emotional Jul 23, 2005

#The Flinger Family#got pee sticks?

Another test today. You know.. just to be sure. (Although, I’m still not scheduled to start for another week.)

It said Not Pregnant.

That’s a good thing, right?

So why am I crying?

#got pee sticks?

I peed on a stick. An UNUSED stick, I might add. And it actually read “Not Pregnant” because the two line thing, apparently, is entirely to confusing to us morons that call the doctor with a positive test bawling when, in fact, it is not.

Can I tell you something? Jul 16, 2005

I came to Borders to work. I have two

five websites to do. I really want to work. I have ideas, I’m excited to work for these gals, I love it. But seriously? I’m totally unable to do it. I’m on the verge of tears for the third day in a row. I’m so emotional and crazy in my brain. Crazy. Like, “My god, remember PPD? Remember???” I was just on Mama-C-Ta’s site and couldn’t help but tear up at her new lil’ boy. I don’t want that. I know I know! It hit me.. Post Partum Depression. Remember those first few days home? Remember crying for weeks? Remember how horrible I felt? OOOHHHHH, GOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDDDDDD.

Can’t I just fast forward until the third month? Everything was so much better then. Of course, I’d also sought help and was finally starting to come back to myself. It’ll be different this time, right? It’ll be better, right? I know more, right? I can find help, I can learn from the past, I can be more calm and aware and ready for the challenges, right?

But I do want this and I know, for a fact, it’s all worth it in the end.

All of this and the test isn’t even positive yet. Now excuse me, I need some chocolate and a kleenex.
