It's thrush. Good old thrush. Phewwww..... I'm not dying.
Why did I get thrush? Well.. because recently I got kicked down by a really nasty cold and had to take anti-biotics for it. Turns out that taking anti-biotics can cause thrush in woman.
Now I'm back on anti-biotics to cure it!! Can you see the pattern here???? Hmmm.. anyway.
Fantastic being a woman, isn't it??? We're such complicated creatures!
Anyway - so now that I've been poked and prodded by condom covered ultra-sound devices that look like petrifying dildo's, pregnancy and miscarriages were eliminated as well as my over-reaction that I may possibly be bleeding to death internally and a ginormous slice of my salary has been stolen from me... this blog can carry on back to normal.
I have got to share with you my news about Alex!!!
Let me start from the beginning:
After Scotty decided to disappear on me once again and go out drinking (which he then apologized for after 12pm the next day saying that he had no signal on his phone until then!!! Really?! Convenient....) I got pissed off and decided not to see him for the weekend. It just happens far too regularly for me, you know?
I was planning on just staying in with a good book and relaxing in my slippers and onsie:
Buuuuuuut then Alex invited me over to his place for a dinner party! I know, right!?
When I asked who else was coming he said that it was the personal trainer from gym and his French girlfriend.
Double date!?!? He may not have said it but I was thinking it.
Of course I jumped at the chance. I was cross with Scotty and even though I am painfully attracted to Alex, I also do feel like I could finally be forming a proper friendship group. I've never really had one of those... it's always just been me. I don't have a 'click' or a 'group.' So this could be the start of something much more beneficial for me as a person!
I bounded over to Waitrose and gathered up salad supplies after dabbing on some makeup and dressing 'down.' I'd opted for a pair of dark blue skinny jeans, a black vest, a white hoodie and some white sandals. I didn't want it to seem like I'd dressed up for him, you know?
When I got to his place, which is situated right out in the forest on a farm with rolling green hills and a valley of paddocks along the side of the dirt road.. I met his mother! She is an incredible woman and she actually stayed and ate dinner with us.
After a trio of salads (remember we are all gym bunnies here....) we watched one of the best movies I think I have ever seen:
Watching a movie wouldn't really have been my first choice. I'm much more of an interactive person and would have preferred if the four of us had played a board game or something... but it was a seriously great film!
But when you watch a movie next to the guy you have the hots for - it can be really awkward! I didn't know how to sit, what the safe distance between us would be, what to do with my hands and arms..... so eventually I just sort of slumped down in this sofa that could have gobbled me up it was so soft and I crossed my arms over my stomach so that it almost looked like I was sulking!!! But I didn't know what else to do!
The WHOLE movie Alex was on his phone next to me texting someone and I couldn't help but get super annoyed with it. Why did he invited ME to this dinner and movie night if he was going to be sitting there texting some other girl the whole time???
But eventually he showed me, the personal trainer and the personal trainers French girlfriend a picture of this battered up guy who was in the hospital. Turns out the other staff on call in the hospital that night were messaging him pictures of this guys x-rays.
So I needn't have got upset.
Once or twice I did think he may just reach out and touch my leg or my hand but he didn't and I am actually grateful for that.
I would have wanted to hold his hand back but cheating is something I don't agree with so I wouldn't want to do that until things with Scotty have been sorted out.
Plus.. with this whole thrush thing, Scotty has been so lovely about it. He drove me to the gynecologist and even brought me lunch AND paid for the medicine. He really does try sometimes.
OK.... so at least I know what the hell is going on with my lady business now.
And as for the Scotty / Alex situation... well, that's the ongoing tale that makes this blog what it is.
I'm glad today is nearly over. It's definitely been testing.
Tomorrow is a new day and I get to see a very sexy shirtless Alex in the gym for an hour or two - but then I have Scotty over for dinner.
Hmmmm... life aint so bad... (even with thrush).
