I had to work some extra days on some different days of the week to make up for the time I took off to retreat three weekends in a row. What was I thinking!?!
It was time once again for the 5 year colonoscopy. Not a thing to look forward to, but I am sure glad it is over. In the past couple of years, four people that I know have been diagnosed with colon cancer, so even though I hate it, I certainly believe in testing. This one was actually sooooo much easier than the last time. That last time, I gagged and gagged and almost threw up so many times and ended up throwing out a good portion of the prep. Mom told me that her doctor had her use Miralax and it did not taste bad at all. So, I looked it up on the Internet and followed the rules I found. It really was not that bad. No real taste but a bit of saltiness.
Then I had to do my 4 month check up with the doctor, which also involved fasting blood tests and not eating lunch until about 1:30pm.
My poor body is in survival mode. It thinks I am starving to death! No measure of dieting will convince it to let go of a single calorie right now. It's too bad I can't trick it into thinking I badly need to lose weight. Oops! It wouldn't be a trick. Too bad my body doesn't know that.
Then the washing machine broke. We spent several days trying to figure it out and finally started searching for a new one. An amazing thing happened! It just so happened that our washer broke at the very same time that there was a sale on appliances. Woohoo! Anyway..... It will be arriving tomorrow.
The garage was a total disaster area. Guess what! The washer has to go into the house through the garage. So, I spent most of Wednesday and some of Thursday rearranging and organizing three lifetimes worth of stuff stored in the garage. It's a bit more organized but does not take any less space. What? Was I hoping that it had shrunk or something?
Yesterday was our Gulf States Quilting Association meeting in Daphne, AL. Crazy me! I got up at 6:00am and showered and got on the road in order to make it there for 10am. Good meeting. Interesting topics. Long drive! On my way home, I stopped at exit 59 (Madisonville/Covington) and got gas and then went to Panera Bread for some dinner before continuing on. While looking at the menu and trying to decide what to eat, I looked to my left and there was an old square dancing friend who lives over that way somewhere. Judy and Ken Saucer just happened to be in Panera Bread when I stopped in. I haven't seen them in at least four years! What a wonderful evening!
