Very quick update

Sign in to follow this  


Had my lesson for today and it went very well. After 20 minutes or so he told me to park the car at the side of the road, and asked me how I felt so far. My reply was: "I have hoped that you wouldn't ask, 'cause now everything is going to be worse." He just rolled his eyes and told me to believe in myself. Like I said, it got a bit bad after that but I saved it and drove good in the end. He said 80% was good! He told me that I was using my mirrors perfectly. I looked every time I should have looked. He also pretty much stopped telling me when to go up and down a gear.

Tomorrow I will have a two hour long overland lesson. We will drive to the Swabian Alb and have fun there. I really like driving faster outside of cities so I hope it will be fun. Lots of curves and great roads.

I still have no time for my exam on Thursday. They switched to an online only system during the last days (communication with the driving schools) and well, Germany does pretty good with a lot of things, but new systems and internet is not one of it. But I should get the time tomorrow.

I'm incredibly tired (also because I did a lot of revising for the exam) but I'm looking forward to tomorrow!

      Yeah. The more I learn about the "usefulness" of castor oil. I think that I too would thoroughly opt for an enema.

      The idea of inducing gastric upset with the impending baby sounds hideous.

      Is there any particular reason that enemas have fallen out of favor? (other than it is something being stuck up your butt)

      Here in Belgium they still routinely offer enemas. I decided to go for one. I know it's normal to defecate when giving birth, but I get easily embarrassed and thought it would help me be less inhibited when pushing.

      The thing is... when labour starts, it's not uncommon that it all comes out already anyway. Sorry if it's too much information, but the cramps I experience on the first days of my period often cause diarrhea. The same thing happened when I went into labour, and I have since then heard that my experience is not unusual.

      Once I got to the hospital, I didn't think I really needed an enema anymore, but as mentioned above, figured I should anyway just for my own peace of mind. It didn't have any effect at all since my bowels were already empty, and once it came to pushing I was so preoccupied with the pain and the effort that I wouldn't have noticed if I had produced a turd the size of Joshley.

      I feel like "older sister" is maybe an insult? Like one of your maiden aunts chaperoning you?

      ORRRRRRR, maybe she is anxious to meet some well-off business person so that she can escape and establish independence in her own household.

      So, I read the Allure article about accessible Mormons and how beautiful they are. It...made me very uncomfortable because it was so glowing. There was a teeny tiny bit of lip service regarding problematic beliefs. Maybe the intersection of "wellness" and "no alcohol and no caffeine" makes the lifestyle attractive and accessible.

      This being the realm of snark, I was super interested to see what Allure would write because after firing the amazing Linda Wells, they hired someone with little experience and little evidence that she had a distinct and interesting point of view. I expected a decline in quality. I wasn't wrong.

      Luckier than some? Yes. Lucky? No. 

      I agree.  Luckier than some in that your parents acknowledged their mistakes and the bad advice given by the church.  Not lucky.

      Nice to see you here again.  I've been wondering how you are doing.  You must have graduated by now and perhaps have started writing your autobiography.  I look forward to reading it some day. :)
