Of Salmonella, snow and Sirius

I have not had anything interesting to post about in the past several days. I've thought about blog entries every day, but could never come up with any remotely interesting ideas. My week has been pretty boring.

Buster is convinced that I caught a case of that pesky Salmonella. He cites the fact that I've eaten a lot of eggs this week, and perhaps I didn't fully cook some of them. Or there was "residue" on them (residue of what I'm not sure!). About 2:00 yesterday I started feeling really feverish, got a horrendous headache and had to run to the bathroom. I'm not sure what it was all about, but I'm practically better today. The headache still lingers, but otherwise I'm alright. If I was sick over my 3-day weekend I would have been upset, to put it mildly!

We got lots of snow this past week. Probably 6 inches, which may not be a lot to some people, but to me it is. Mainly because I do not own a 4-wheel-drive vehicle. So currently, snow is my enemy. My beautiful enemy.

On Tuesday I had my second Weight Watchers meeting. I was down 4 lbs from the week before!! This excites me. If I can get past the 10 lb threshold, I think losing will be a lot easier because I will notice the progress.

On the TTC front, I have had no discernible symptoms. Unless you count the Salmonella symptoms. But I really think that was from the edible eggs, not the eggs that I hope are doing something inside of me. Today is "8 dpo". It is in quotes because, with all the chaos surrounding my O date, who really knows what I am! I decided to POAS this morning. It appears to be darkest control line in history. Needless to say, there is no dye on any other part of the test, besides the control line.

Oh well! The skeptic in me is usually right, as much as I hate that. If this cycle is a bust, I am going to ask for some injectibles for next cycle. I'm getting serious Sirius.

Once I get to 100 fans, I'm going to have a giveaway!! I think I will do either an Amazon or iTunes gift card, or a fertility bracelet. I'm not sure how many winners yet, but I will keep you posted!


  1. How cute . . . I love Harry Potter and I have never seen that before!

  2. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Shame on you for POAS this early!!

    Enjoy the snow and all the beauty it has to offer. We know what's underneath it all. :)

    <3 you!

  3. 8dpo is WAY too early for POAS... Don't worry - I'm a shameful early POASer too...

    Congrats on the weight loss - this is wonderful!

  4. The snow looks amazing!! We are having 80 degree weather here in Cali.. We even ran our air yesterday :) Crazy right?!? Good Luck with Weight Watchers.. I've done it twice (3 years apart) and had great success.. 22 pounds lost the first time, and 20 pounds lost the second.. I actually just started doing it on my own (not paying for it) 2 weeks ago.. It really works.. Keep us posted on your progress :)

  5. I've had salmonella, and it's the WORST! Sorry you had to deal with that lady!

  6. I hope it's not salmonella, and that it's a symptoms! FX

  7. Glad to hear you are feeling somewhat better today. I live in Michigan, so we get a lot of snow! I don't have a 4 wheel drive vehicle either which makes for interesting driving (very slow) on our snow-filled days.
