I spent all day alone and lonely in the new, empty house. Got some cleaning done, and some reading. Then, had to come home to the apartment and cook dinner. But DH and I had a nice evening continuing our game of Icewind Dale.4 years ago

Not that amazing day. I had track and the workout was poopy, I have homework that I could swim in. And maybe the only positive thing out of this day is the mall that I might be going to? I don’t know. 4 years ago
I’m unusually good for having to do homework most of the day. One whole week until school starts again, sadly, so I have to do all the work I’ve been holding back on. Better to do it now instead of wait until Friday and waste my whole weekend. Plus I have a meet on Wednesday, so that takes out a whole day out of my schedule.
I already finished one out of two of my Physics labs, so that at least is a good thing. For AP Euro, I thought I had done one of my packets, but apparently not! So I got halfway through the chapter only to realize I hadn’t done the one before it. So I have some learning to do. No wonder I couldn’t remember anything. And I thought it was just the break…
Plus I have a project in AP Euro that I want to get started on so I’m not completely clueless when I get back after break. Better to be ahead of the game..
So yeah. A 9 today and I’m feeling accomplished! 4 years ago
Yesterday – A very, very hard workout in track. The air was so stale and it was so hard to breath that every time I would stop, I felt the need to pass out. That part of the day was the hardest for me and it sucked. We did ten laps, endless tag, long distances, wall sits. I feel it today.
Which leads me on to my mood today. Sore. For track today we ran a couple of miles, there and back. It was good to get out of the indoors running. However, this is INDOOR track. Should’ve ran indoors, but oh well. After track I took a shower and put on pajamas =] So I’m comfortable at least! 4 years ago
So my ratings for the next few days will probably be a little lower than otherwise. But, they won’t be too low as there are all sorts of other exciting things going on, like buying the house, preparing for maternity leave and baby, the holiday season, etc. 4 years ago
I love the idea of the Morale-O-Meter but the problem is I struggle to settle on a score! My days seem to range widly – moments of today have been a 1 (K still being a teenage nightmare), others have been a 10 (one smile from little Emma is all it takes!)
For that reason and marking this goal as done! Enjoy your 10s everyone! 4 years ago
Friday got a 10. I called in sick to work, bought some movies and hung out with the boyfriend and had a great time.
Saturday went down to a one. Steady low scores since then. Bad shit happened in the relationship that left me hurting worse than I have ever hurt before.
Today (Thursday) I’m up to a 6. Things are trying to get worked out in the relationship, I hung out with him today and I had a wonderful time. I’m still hurting, but today was one of those days that made it better and made me feel like everything may end up okay. (Which I am hoping for.) It was the first day since Saturday I haven’t cried because I was in pain. 4 years ago
It would have been a “6,” my new “normal,” except at the very end of the day DH and I went to bed at the same time and talked and giggled for awhile in bed. Very sweet, and a lovely end to the day. So, I upped the score to “7.”
But this is why we usually don’t go to bed at the same time, otherwise it takes forever to get to sleep. (Because of the talking! What else?) 4 years ago
Tried not to dwell on the non-appearance of the baby and distracted myself from baby things.
I took a couple of amusing internet tests (apparently I would sucessfully survive a zombie attack), took some photos, caught up with some jobs, watched some Scrubs and had some nice time with both the kids.

I’ve been at an 8 for a while – enjoying maternity leave and doing things I enjoy.
Struggles with my teenage daughter have bought that down a little – it is a constant worry whether I’m handling things wisely.
Today is a 5. I had virtually no sleep last night as I kept having contractions and thought labout was going to kick off. Sadly no. Just enough discomfort to keep me awake. I really need this baby to arrive now! 4 years ago
For weeks now, my morale has not dropped below a 6, with the occasional 7s and 8s sprinkled in. And I only expect it to keep getting better. 4 years ago
Today was a pretty good day, for a workday. I kept pretty busy at work with interesting meetings, and chatted quite a bit with other people about my pregnancy. Plus, I officially got notified of that promotion I’ve been expecting. So, good day. And there’s still time to do something interesting this evening. 4 years ago
September 5= 2
I cried. I went to work and everytime a sad song or a love song came on, I almost started crying again. I bitched to a friend which helped. Now I’m about to cry again. 4 years ago
Sunday, August 31= 9
Hung out with my niece in the morning and then the bf that night. He was being wonderful and affectionate and I love it when he is that way. Had excellent sex and he rubbed my shoulders because they were sore. Fell asleep with him.
Monday, September 1= 5
Woke up with the boyfriend. Went out to take some pictures of nature and went on a hike to the Natural Arch. I don’t handle heat very well and was probably dehydrated. Had to sit and rest a little bit. The scenery was really pretty though. Got back to the bf’s Jeep and discovered my leg was covered in little ticks. Went back to his parents’ house for the rest of the night. I ended up feeling shitty all day for reasons regarding the bf, which is why the meter is a bit low. Ended the night falling asleep in his arms which was really nice. 4 years ago
I had an all-day review at work at which I had to present a section and also take notes all day. It was inherently a little stressful but I thought the review went pretty well. It was really interesting to hear all the review board comments and I always learn a lot at these reviews. Plus, the printed & bound copies of the presentations that I’d ordered from Repro turned out great :-) 4 years ago
Got to see college friends K and J! We went to the Angels-Mariners game (at Anaheim Stadium) and happened to sit in an area that had a decent number of other Mariners fans. I ate Nachos and some of K and J’s Dippin’ Dots (or another brand called MolliCooly?!) It was great to catch up with them, haven’t seen them in awhile. Plus I got to talk lots about Baby :-) 4 years ago
Basically, they’re “average” days but I’ve been doing something extra each day that gives me a bit more enjoyment or satisfaction. I guess I should be glad that my typical day has been around 6 (up from 5 before my vacation) but it’s a little sad the weekend wasn’t much higher, since I have so much more control over what I do on the weekends. 4 years ago
Yesterday was heading to be a 6, work ok, nice lunch in the park, met nice new midwife….but then I came home and read K’s school report which was awful and then had a row with hubby who was being completely unsupportive about me wanting to go back to work part time instead of full time after I have the baby. Went to bed crying.
Today I had a difficult therapy session but then a good meeting at work which boosted things. I had a lovely coffee on my own – bliss – and then a really productive afternoon (despite some very negative comments). Best of all snuggles with Jimmers and the dog when I got in! 4 years ago
Yesterday was ok (no work, bit of a lie in) but some chores to run and feeling quite tired. Shopping for shoes (among other things) was a plus but visiting MIL was a bit of a minus. Argument with K but none with hubby. Overall above average.
Today was good. Argued with hubby on the way out but ended up having a lovely day in the sun – kids trampolined on the beach then we all had lunch al fresco and the dog behaved. Wish I didn’t have work tomorrow but overall feeling contented. 4 years ago
-2 I woke up with horrible bruises and sores everywhere, from what, I have yet to discover.
+6 My mom and I got bored so we decided to thin out my hair and curl it. Curling it might be something I’ll do more often! :] (picture included)
+2 I got some wood to make a bulletin board, now I just need the fabric and foam.
+1 I watched Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey and Fools Rush In, and loved them both! :] 4 years ago
+6 My everlasting happy mood has been staying happy
-1 My arm is hurting, growing pains without the growth.
+2 It’s the weekend and I’m hanging out with a friend I haven’t seen in a while! :]
+1 I got a tan and went to the beach! 4 years ago
into a pattern. Average, nondescript days during the work week and then a morale spike during the weekend. It’s because I don’t tend to do much of anything interesting during the week (just work, cook dinner, rest, and sleep) so those days are just routine, boring, not bad but not good either. Then on the weekend I actually get out and do something interesting.
I’d like to break this rut (and I will since I’m starting a two-week vacation in about 7 hours) but I also want to make sure I don’t fall back into it when I get back from vacation. I think things will get somewhat better once I get into my second trimester (I’m supposed to have more energy then, right?) and definitely once I cut down to half time in October. Then I’ll have time to actually do something on the weekdays. 4 years ago
Good day yesterday, crappy day today. It’s so hot and humid and I got a crappy amount of sleep and I’m so tired. Yesterday I went to my friend’s house and we only got bored a couple of times but for the most part, it was pretty enjoyable.
Today’s going down the wrong path, but if I just chill out, hopefully I can be okay x_x 4 years ago

I had an interview this morning that I felt went REALLY WELL. Of course, I hate to say that, since I haven’t had much luck lately. Still…my gut says it went well. I felt like I clicked with the man that interviewed me. I felt like the job sounded like a really good fit. We’ll see what happens. 4 years ago
Well, it is an improvement. Things are still awkward between us and my PILs (go figure) but I think they are improving slowly. Unfortunately, right after all the excitement – well, later that night – I got sick. In some ways, that’s been a blessing; I’ve spent most of last night and today up in our room, away from everyone. I think that that time was really, really good for me.
So, today is a 3 because I was recovering from a nasty bout with stomach issues but it is better than yesterday’s 2 because things seem to be getting less tense. (Kind of.) 4 years ago
