after a horribly emotional day, i’ve woken up this morning feeling much better and i feel like i’m still in the running for pregnancy after all.
how crazy that a dream could set me off emotionally for a whole day. it was the dream but i also think my body was doing something very hormonal as well. i was just down yesterday. i felt sick, like stuffed up and yucky. i felt like i didn’t belong in my own skin.
i went to the rental house to clean and by 1030 i was ravenous. i felt like fast food. i have said in the past that craving fast food is one of my “pregnancy” signs but yesterday it was just a plain old “i feel like shit, i need poutine to wallow in” kind of moment. i ended up back at our own house on the laz-y-boy with a bacon cheeseburger and poutine in my lap watching “this is 40” and going through fits of uncontrollable crying and longing for a family. it’s funny that i got this emotional release from a movie that depicts a marriage on the rocks at times, a moody screaming teenager, a somewhat bratty child and a crazy hormonal pregnant woman hahaha. i LOVE paul rudd and i although her best acting ability is cry talking i just love leslie mann as well.
by the afternoon i’d gotten myself back the rental to weed the garden and afterwards i was so hot. i did something kind of weird. i ran a cold bath and soaked in it. i haven’t had a tub for over 6 years so it was the most magical moment. hahaha. i just finished drying off and had gotten dressed when the doorbell rang. I FUCKING KNEW IT! my husband’s mom was working in town this week and said she could come over and help with the house on friday. i did not want her anywhere near that place so i politely said “we actually don’t have much to do so we’ll be fine. instead of friday, if you guys want to take a drive on sunday to come up and see it, you’re more than welcome to”. well, that’s not good enough for my MIL. so there she was trying to look to through the window and waving frantically. shes a socially awkward woman and i couldn’t figure out if she was waving hello or waving like “hey, see me, SEE ME open the door!”.
with an audible grunt i and “fuck” under my breath i opened the door.
i made no effort to act happy to see her, i was actually kind of rude, but she could never tell this because i think people act like that a lot around her and she doesn’t have the ability to realize she’s annoying as fuck.
a quick tour and i told her i was “just leaving”. her response, “oh good thing i caught you before you left!” no, i told you not to fucking come here!
we made a little small talk in the driveway and i said “oh, happy belated birthday by the way”. this is how fucking socially mental she is. it’s like she gets herself so hyper when she’s talking to someone that she can’t actually properly listen to what people say and then she has to guess what they just said to her… so her response to it was “oh that’s okay”. WTF? okay.
i got home and chris wasn’t far behind me. we headed back the rental to show it 545. turned out this total stranger that inquired about our house is married to a girl i knew in my home town. small world!! so they came to see the place last night. we chit chatted as we showed the house and found out they are moving because he will be creating a satellite office for her company. he has a good job and they already own their own condo but they don’t want to fully commit to this area if things don’t work out. they seemed to really like the place and i told us they were looking at some other places in the area. they actually had landlords tell them straight up “you’re best people that come through to look so far” and some of them have gone as far as to call them and almost beg them to be their tenants. i really hope they pick us! not only because i know they would be great tenants but also because i don’t want to have to show the place to less desirable applicants.
at the end of the conversation they asked if they wanted to stay longer than 12 months but less than 24 if that was an option. we said of course and they were relieved because, you guessed it, she’s PREGNANT! i almost knew that was going to happen. i had honestly thought to myself, “i bet we’ll find out she’s pregnant when we meet them”. it’s almost like i have a sixth sense for this shit now LOL
i always wonder if this is a sign? the previous owner was pregnant, the potential new tenant is pregnant. am i surrounded by this maternal energy for a reason?
then i just think it’s the universe being a dick and letting me know i haven’t suffered enough or i haven’t learned the lesson i’m supposed to learn by going through all this.
i guess we’ll wait until next week to see which one is true.
