i feel like i've been a whiner lately. and the sad thing is - i'm having fun & enjoying life. i shouldn't whine. i won't tonight. after - i discuss a certain ailment that's been bothering me for a few days (and no, jamie, i'm not talking about how i constantly get food stuck in my teeth!) i've been suffering from a weird kinda stomach ache/pain/gassy/crampy feeling. but mostly, its just when i tinkle. but its to the left (on the inner parts) of my belly button. i'm not thinking its bladder related, cause i've been drinking tons of water. but my stomach has constantly been feeling bloated & and i'm not just being polite to chuck. i'm not backed up. i've been eating healthy. for me. and drinking water. what's up? if you have any suggestions, let me know, cause i'd love to not have to go to the doctor, or the emergency room.
today didn't start off so swell for me. i got to school, was walking in & realized that i left my plan book & all the papers that I graded last night on my kitchen counter. poop. thankfully, i was early (on time for me, but early for my paid time) and since i live 7 minutes away in traffic, i was still back to school on time. sure, i could've survived without my plan book & papers, but i wanted them. i wanted to finish grading more papers. (only to bring more home tonight. arg) then, i hadn't gone to the gas station, cause i do have an ounce of self control. but i bought a can as soon was i got in the building. went to my room, sat down, cracked that baby open (am i a total nutcase to admit that opening a can of dr pepper is one of my favorite sounds?) and proceeded to spill it all down my shirt & pants. lovely. i'm so graceful. i actually sucked on a little bit of my shirt. (i know, you're laughing. i'm pathetic. but it was wasteful! & it was either that or cry.)
then, later on this afternoon, i was walking down the hallway. one of the teachers on my team who i'm not a big fan of (that's the understatement of my lifetime, but hey) was in that same hallway, letting her kids get drinks at the drinking fountain. this one girl got a drink & whirled around & almost ran me down. she looked up at me, cause either she's super short or i'm a giant & exclaimed, "wow, you're pretty. my teacher's not!" i politely smiled, said "thank you, but shhh!" and kept walking. apparently that girl doesn't mind a dr pepper stained outfit (my kinda kid) and i didn't even make a rude crack to her, dad! in fact, i've now decided that she's my favorite kid in that class! for saying that i'm pretty. and for saying that her teacher's not (i'm not a nice person & i really don't like this lady!) so that kinda made my day. was definitely a highlight.
then i had the lovely pleasure of being treated to dinner tonight by jamie. good eats. good talks. good laughs. not a good bathroom experience. i had a lot to drink. so after sitting there talking for an hour or so, i had to use the little girl's room. i followed a lady who was obviously sick. my eyes were watering & i seriously wanted to commit a hate crime. boy did i glare at that lady afterwards. you better believe if i have nightmares tonight, it'll revolve around that bathroom experience. (and jamie, whatever i said i was going to blog about, i can't remember now what it was... shoot)
