I Am NOT Pregnant.

I'm fine. completely and totally fine.
I'm sorry if I sounded dark and bleak yesterday. I was going for reserved and vague. I should know by now that I'm not good at vague. I'm much better at laying my cards all over the table and saying "hey! - here it is..."

So, Hey! Here it is:
I am fine.  Good even.
I just have those blahs that we all get. (tell me we all get them!)  The ones where I have tons of things that I should do, but nothing that I want to do.  It's a motivational issue for me, and nothing more.  I didn't want to drag people down for no reason, and I really didn't want sympathy comments.  But if the comments had been turned on, my friend Dave made a graph that completely cracked me up to show what they would have looked like:

Comments on JustRandi
more funny pictures

So for all of you who were guessing pregnant - umm that would be a no.

And a quick thank-you to my friends who sent emails. I'm sorry that I concerned you for no good reason.

But if I HAD been pregnant, it would have taken a LOT more than sending prayers and emails for me to feel better.

A LOT.

I'm just sayin'.

DANGIT!!

I just realized i mispelled something in the graph.

i would go and change it, but...

i'm strangely lacking in motivation

:-)

i don't even want to spell check this comment.

but as far as those "blahs" go? I have not idea what you are talking about.

Heather said...

my comment would have been "lame attempt at humor" for sure. Hope the funk ends soon.

I HEAR ya...
My kids thought I was sick with a fatal disease just before I announced my 7th pregnancy because of how I was acting.
Try being 39 and pregnant - again.

But I am glad I had him. Love him more than life itself. Funny how that happens...
:~D

I didn't jump to "pregnancy," but probably because I'm past that myself.

Chocolate will cure just about anything, but I'm pretty sure you already know that.

Chief said...

heading back to yesterdays post to see what category I fit into

I'm a me-too'er. Also not pregnant. Also just severely lacking in any sort of motivation. Like preparing the R.S. lesson for Sunday. Yeah, I still haven't done that. Motivation is just GONE.

I personally think it's fall setting in. It's like a message from nature saying, "Hey, YOU! Guess what? Gorgeous weather and warm days are history for the next half year. Have fun! Wouldn't wanna be ya! (evil laugh)"

Yvonne said...

Love the graph. Too funny.

So I guess instead of sympathy comments you got the sympathy e-mails ; )

I can't find the misspelled word in the graph

Stacey said...

Dave-that graph is awesome. It took me awhile to even notice the misspelled word. Does that make you feel better? ;)

I would be a me-too-er. I have no motivation to do anything,even though I am moving in 8 and 1/2 days.

Chocolate and diet coke coming to you! *HUGS*

Barbaloot said...

I would've been both a me-too-er and a that-flair-is-so-funny-er. Seriously, I loved the "I know, right?" I probly say that a lot:)

And what's motivation?

Lee said...

I guess there should be an extra spot on that graph for "what the heck?" er's.

Walk away from the computer for a few days and all kinds of stuff happens and I have no idea what. I'm gonna just wait this one out cause I'm lost.

bsu fam said...

LOL. I love the last 3 lines. A LOT! I feel the exact same way.

mormonhermitmom said...

So what part of the graph would the graph be in?

Beverly @ The Buzz said...

My husband calls this mood "the cain't help its". And I spelled can't with an i on purpose because that's how we say it. The "can't help its" just doesn't have the same flair. Flair, get it??? Sorry.

Lucy said...

Aww heck. I knew you were going to snap out of it. We all seem to. Sometimes I get into that big hole in life and have to claw my way back out. Life! Sometimes it makes me wonder.

Vern said...

Well if YOU'RE not pregnant, and I'M not pregnant, wanna go get sloshed? You know, "Happy Hour" is from 2-4.

JustRandi said...

VERN!! That's what I'm talkin' about. You name the day. I'll even drive to the Sonic on your side of town.

Kevin said...

I feel an 'Office Space' quote coming...

'It’s a problem of motivation, alright?

My only real motivation is not to be hassled, that and the fear of losing my job.

But you know, Bob, that will only make someone work just hard enough not to get fired.'

Melissa said...

I think I would have fit into the lame attempt with a little bit of sympathy thrown in there. :)

Dave said...

mormonhermitmom,

i'd say the graph would fall in a new category:

lame, but somewhat humorous, attempt to lighten the mood

:-)

and thanks stace, yvonne :-)

and thanks justrandi for validating my lame attempt at humor :-)

i'd also like to thank the emoticon, smiley, without whom i don't think i would be able to communicate :-)

rocslinger said...

Did someone mention sonic? Oh sorry I just can't concentrate when Sonic is mentioned. So what were you posting about?

Stephanie Faris said...

Hilarious! I've noticed people are quick to diagnose pregnancy around here. Lots of hopeful people in blog-land!

Jennifer said...

Love the graph...and the catchy title. Hey, there are medical miracles....it could happen. In fact I knew someone who got pregnant later in life....I think it was 7 years after her youngest, but I can't quite remember because I have a four year old holding up a cute little ribbon and asking if we can tie it to something, (I quickly tied it to the light just now.) Oh wait I just heard him say something to himself "now I can swing from it." I gotta go! Love ya! Thanks for taking the time to Blog and make me laugh! You amaze me.

Hope4Hannah said...

AWWw no new baby sister or brother for me? hahaha Iposted a blog finally! With a secret code for you at the bottom!

LisAway said...

Oh, Dave's awesome. Glad you're just in a funk. I mean, sorry you were in a funk! :)

I'm planning on writing a little about my pregnancy (mostly for personal journal purposes) but would want to turn comments off to avoid people feeling like they need to give sympathy. I'm glad to hear that it's been done before, and I may end up doing it, too. :)

Dave said...

gee thanks LisAway :-) you're too kind
