DH and I headed out at 6:30 because I needed to stop for gas. Then off to Kaiser. Of course the door I usually go in was locked, we had to find another door. Finally get in and get to the lab at 6:55...it is supposed to open at 7:00..it was already open and they were on number 50 (no, it does not start at 1 every day) and I pulled my number...60. Not too bad. Only have to wait for 9 people. I get my blood drawn and we decide to head over to the hospital building to see if we can get a cup of coffee since my mammogram isn't until 8:30 and it was only about 7:15. We find the cafeteria but it doesn't open until 9 on the weekends and although there are vending machines, there isn't one that sells the icky coffee. We leave the hospital from the basement and get trapped behind the building. Have to walk up and down a whole bunch of stairs before we get to a place that we recognize. It's time for Starbucks. We cross the massive parking lot and finally get across the street.
YAY for coffee!!!! Then it's time to head back to Kaiser. We get back at 7:55 and they are just arriving in the Women's Imaging department. I get checked in and prepare to wait until 8:30. I get called back at 8:15 and we're walking out of the building at 8:30. I call my brother to let him know we're heading over and he says "Wow, your appointment only lasted 1 minute."
We went to Baji's Down the Street Cafe. I got a really good egg white, chicken, mushroom, tomato, onion and jack cheese scramble with some home fries and 9 grain toast. I was starving so I ate the whole scramble but only half of the potatoes and toast.
As we often do, we headed over to Fry's Electronics and walked around for a couple of hours looking at DVDs, Blu-rays, PS3 games. We get back to my brother's place and then people are starting to feel a little hungry. We decide to walk to downtown Mountain View and go to Shiva (Indian buffet).
Too much tasty food was eaten...well, I still made my calories...not even at the the top and I definitely don't want dinner.
Got lots of walking in. It was a 5 mile round trip to lunch/dinner (lunner). I'm at about 19,000 steps for the day. It turned out to be a good one.
