Temping and me

I hab a bad cowd (translation: I have a bad cold). Sneezing, sniffly, sore throat - the whole shebang. It's sad to wake up sick. :(

I have decided that I think too much about things. In fact, I woke up at 4:30, 5:15, 5:45, and 6:30 this morning because my brain wouldn't turn off! I don't know what to do. It's not like I was sitting there making myself worry - I was too tired to be doing that. But I just kept waking up and finding my mind thinking about every possibility that could occur when I temped this morning - high? low? falsely high because I'm not sleeping? high, but not falsely, but I think it's falsely because I'm not sleeping? Sigh.

What do I do? Should I stop temping? (I'm such a scientist, and I love collecting these data points that I can use to predict the future. I'm not sure how I would deal without temping!)

Girl I threw temping out of the picture... See I stopped EVERYTHING except SEX! LOL I think temping, taking meds, and all that really make is stressful. We wanted to get pregnant so fast after our miscarriage that it just took so much out of me. I want to be happy in my marriage and not stress because it adds on to our marriage.

I wish you blessings...

I love temping because I get so much information about my body and it helps us to know we are timing things right. I actually asked dh if he wanted me to stop and he was like "NO I need that info" lol.

I think it must be in our genes to worry and lose sleep over such things. I just starting consistently temping and have also been having compulsive thoughts about it that keep me from sleeping. (Though my obsessive thoughts have been in the opposite way (hoping for AF to come) at this time, we are trying to avoid pregnancy since Brian still has at least a year and perhaps two years (if he goes for the second masters) left at school and I want to be home with a new baby and not working full time wishing I were with my baby.). I told Brian how I was practically going crazy at work worrying about this, especially since I didn't feel comfortable talking about it with my coworkers. He said (in a very kind way) that he's noticed that I do tend to go nuts about things until I've talked about it enough. I think he's right in my case. Maybe talking about it would help you too? (I'm always willing to be a listening ear and I am just a phone call away!) I, like Brooke, think that temping is helpful and that you should continue with that practice.
