Let's Get Glam
Friday, August 09, 2013
This week I found out my hormone levels are still elevated from my miscarriage, so I'll have to schedule another blood draw soon. However, it does show signs of going down. It went from 19 to 5 from one blood test to the next. Hopefully the next time it will show up as 0.
Thursday I went to the dermatologist for a spot on my back. He ended up taking a tissue sample and sent it off for testing. He doesn't think it is Melanoma, but you never know.
Today I decided to get some much needed pampering, which I haven't done in a long long while. I can't remember the last time I had a manicure or pedicure. I always paint my own nails to save time and money, however, it IS nice to splurge once in a while. I went ahead and had both done. I feel nice and relaxed for this weekend.
Tomorrow is my husband's future sister-in-law's bridal shower, which I can't say I'm looking forward to. The only person who likes her in the family is my brother-in-law (which is her fiance). The relationship moved very very quickly, which isn't my place to judge. However, they don't seem each other's type at all. His parents and brother don't like the girl. She's very pushy and orders people around. Plus she's made pretty unsavory comments regarding his finances (I see a Gold-Digger). She's openly rude to my husband (her future brother-in-law), and stares at me as though I am an insect that she is trying to decide how to dissect. She pours on the charm in regards to his parents (although it is awkward and completely transparent). It seems like she only does things to make herself into "The Favorite Daughter-in-Law". I've never been anyone to try to impress anybody. I'm honest, I'm blunt, I'm myself - take me or leave me. His parents GENUINELY like me... whereas whenever asked about her they say, "Well, as long as he's (their son) is happy......"
I feel bad for my brother-in-law. Everyone thinks he is making a huge mistake, but nobody wants to offend him by saying so. I can't say anything because it isn't my place, but it if were MY BROTHER I'd be SCREAMING to the high heavens!
Wish me luck at that Bridal Shower tomorrow - It's hard to be genuinely happy for someone when you don't really care for them at all. I'm merely going and putting on a good face because my mother-in-law is hosting it... I'm doing it for her - not the bride-to-be.
