What the Heck? Wednesday

Hello everyone. I hope you're having a fabulous humpday.

Mine is going well. Better than usual, actually. You see, for the past few days (weeks?) I have been having some weird things happen. I would have SWORN that I was pregnanat (and actually took about 7 pregnancy tests to convince myself that I am NOT) because I'm having ALL the symptoms of pregnancy:

*Extreme fatigue (the kind where you literally cannot make yourself get up from the couch)
*Mood swings
*Twinges/flutters in the tummy region
*Aversion to smells that never bothered me before
*lower back pain
*vision issues

And some others that I won't mention here (you're welcome.)

What the heck?

I called my OB nurse and she told me to have my thyroid checked.

That's just great. One more thing to think about!

My sister was in town this past weekend and watched the kiddos while I ran to the grocery store. It was just to grab "a few things." Wouldn't you know I got the cashier who felt it necessary to tell me her whole life story?

Make no mistake, I enjoy chatting it up with people, but when I only have a few minutes and the cashier is very s-l-o-w-l-y bagging up my groceries while telling me that her mom's boyfriend "hates" her and her mom is moving out to live with her boyfriend and then leaving the house to her daughter, but the boyfriend doesn't want the daughter to live there, but the mom said that if the boyfriend (who pays the mortgage) doesn't allow the daughter to live there, then the mom isn't moving out, and the boyfriend thinks the daughter is a drug addict and will party in the house and destroy it with all of her 'drug addict friends'.... *deep breath*

See? I really should never know this much about someone after spending only 10 minutes with her.

What the heck?

Do I have a sign on me that says, "Unburden yourself on me!"?

I am all for helping someone out-even being a listening ear, but there are times and places for it all. Least of all,  however, at the grocery store check out, I'm afraid.

This type of thing happened a lot when I was the office manager at a dental office. Mind you I have NO formal dental training whatsoever. I didn't even wear scrubs in the office. I wore business attire. That didn't stop people from waltzing in the office and throwing open their mouths to show me their infected molar. I guess I should just be thankful that I didn't work in a gynecologist's office.


  1. Uh oh...I hope you are ok!! Maybe they were all false positives??

    I run into people like that all the time who tell me their life story. What the heck? is right!!!

    Thanks for linking up today!

  2. I get the same thing. People LOVE to tell me their life's story. Which is fine when I have time to kill (as if) or if it's especially juicy. Otherwise, keep your TMI to yourself! Oh - also be thankful you didn't work for a proctologist..

  3. That is sooo wierd! I've been dealing with the same symptoms! Maybe it's just the winter/spring season change? Maybe we just desperately want summer? Or perhaps we just desperately want to be pregnant?! Ha ha. Uh huh. NO thank you. Not at this time, thank you very much!

  4. Mommyologist: Although I never say never when it comes to having babies (obviously by my kids ages of 4, 3, 2, and 9 months)I think I would have a nervous breakdown if I were to find out there were "2 pink lines" right now. Just the thought of announcing it is enough to make me go fetal (pun intended.)

    Cheryl: HAHAHAHAHA! You're right on that one, woman! I have NO desire to see ANYONE'S nether regions!

    Roxy: How weird...Hmmm, I woder if it's something earth/moon/axis related or something else very scientific sounding...?

    Jessica: WHAT?!?! Are you and your husband 'trying'? Are you trying to tell me something?!

  5. hahahahaha I have spent the last few months doing that Oh shit dance but no more little ones here! LOL

  6. I JUST found out that PREGNANCY tests are tax deductible!!! Seriously! Save your receipts!!

    LOVED your last comment, "Lucky I didn't work at an OBGYN"!

  7. That is too funny about the OBGYN office! For a minute there I thought you were going to say you were preggo. God bless ya girl!

  8. Good luck with all that...SITS sent me by, and I'm glad they did!

  9. BTW. Hi, my name is Roxanne, I'm 33 years-old and I still have a hard time spelling i before e or e before i words like WEIRD and friend. Neighbor and weigh I'm good on. But all the rest are just too scary for me. LOL!

  10. If you can't take criticism, then you shouldn't have a website, thanks for deleting my post! Apparently you only "love" comments that are berries and sunshine, grow up!

  11. Dear Anonymous:

    Thanks for visiting--multiple times! I'm not sure I can say all I want to in this comment box, so I'm actually planning to write an entire post to you and about you... It should post today. =)
