Hobbit-ish Randomness Galore

Good Evening Humble Readers!

First up, this is my first NaBloPoMo! That crazy acronym is for National Blog Post Month. The goal is to write a post every day for a month. We'll see if I can pull it off.

Halloween was a non-event for us last night. No kids. No pumpkins. No candy. *sigh*

For all those people out there (not in blog land, but in irl) who gave me a rough time about waiting in line for 5 and a half hours, being two hours late for work, and freezing my hind end off for the H1N1 vaccine... I send you a hearty PPTTTTHHHBBbT! :p After the first two public clinics, my city is temporarily out of the serum for the vaccine. At this point they have cancelled all the upcoming clinics.

All has not been entirely rosy since we got our shots. My Beloved had a fever yesterday and was feeling mildly flu-ish. I have had a large red very sore patch on my arm at the injection site, and have been feeling rather icky for the last couple of days.

We began our biggest merchandising project of the year tonight. Changing the store over to Christmas is always a lot of work. I'm excited for the season to really kick in, but I am always unsure if we are actually going to be able to do all the displays and handle all the product at this time of year.

Cycle update: Tomorrow is d-day. AF is due tomorrow. No sign of her yet except a backache and some crazy intense acne. If she doesn't show, I'm not going to test until Tuesday.

What are you most looking forward to in the holiday season? Personally, I am stoked for some good turkey. I missed Thanksgiving (Canadian t-giving is in Oct) because I had to work. A co-worker and I are getting together later this month to cook a turkey, just to give me a fix to get me through until Christmas.


  1. I am hoping that your hubby feels better soon, and that AF stays away for good reason.

    I love your new is a very rich colour!

  2. good luck with NaBloPoMo, I'm sure I would struggle to post daily!

    Do they do halloween in Canada like they do in America? We don't do it at all here - other than fancy dress parties etc.

    I hope you and hubby both feel better soon!

  3. I am looking forward to spending Christmas in Italy! And also looking forward to taking a break from ttc if this cycle doesn't work out.

    Good luck with AF and testing ...


Hobbits are social creatures, and love hearing from friends old and new. Pull up a comfy chair and let's get to know one another.
