I am loving the XM radio that came with my new car. It totally rocks. They have a station for every genre of music that you can imagine. I knew that XM was for me when I found myself jamming out to "Poison" by Bel Biv Devoe en route to a delivery. It made my freaking night. Today, while driving to the hospital for rounds, perusing my preset stations, I got to hear Salsbury Hill by Peter Gabriel, followed by Everything Falls Apart by Dog's Eye View, next was Parents Just Don't Understand by DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince, Shimmer by Fuel, After the Rain by Nelson (Freaking hilarious video. Ahh, the cheesy goodness), and She Hates Me (trust, she effing hates me, la la la la) by Puddle of Mudd. Music that I do not own, but love, just the same. It really helped lift the rather foul mood that has been overshadowing my life this week.
Also, I'm not quite sure if I should be insulted or not, but today the nurses on L&D were asking me how old I was; I told them that I was 31, and they seemed, well, disappointed! They thought that I was a lot older than they (alas, I was not!) I guess that I don't look as young as I think I do, but the nurses were sure that I was 35+ years old. That freaks me out, because I have always looked younger than my age. I think a lot of the problem is the extra weight that I am carrying. It definitely adds age to my face. I am also pretty sure that I am about to start another period, and while we haven't been *trying* to get pregnant, per se, we have not been preventing pregnancy, either. I know that I am not in the best physical shape for a pregnancy, so maybe God and the universe are trying to tell me something.
In other news, Mr. Whoo and I are starting Body For Life this week. I am going to try to post updates, in order to motivate myself and also to keep me in line! This is the program that worked so well for us, prior to our first pregnancy. I abruptly had to stop the BFL secondary to severe nausea and vomiting. I couldn't even look at chicken for the entire pregnancy. Crazy. Since there is no pregancy holding us back, we are getting back with the program. Maybe now I won't have to feel like such a hypocrite when I counsel my patients on weight loss. It is grey and dreary and rainy here, I hope that the weekend is brighter wherever you may be.
