Yesterday was a very busy day for me! I had an interview yesterday for a HS English position at a school district where I had been excized a few years ago (I taught reading at the time, though). The interview went great! I got to see many familiar faces who I haven't seen in 2 years. It would be a longer commute for me, but I've decided, if I get the job, I'll be happy to have a job! If I don't get the job, I'll be happy not to have that commute. Either way, I'm happy!
Then, I had the doctor's appointment for the blood pressure check. The doctor was running behind, so I had to wait for 45 minutes. I didn't sit there and fret about it! I sat there and did relaxing breathing exercises. My blood pressure had been up because the last two times I was there, I sat there waiting and worrying that they were going to forget about me (which they had done to my mom in the past) and the second time, I worried that my blood pressure would be up. Needless to say, it was! This third time, though, it dropped drastically. The doctor has prescribed one quarter of the medication he had me on (he thinks the meds have helped a lot, but I think it's that I'm working on managing my stress better), the same medication that made me sick enough to take a sick day. I really think I'll be totally off the meds in no time, flat! (I read the breathing article in Women's Health Magazine last month and it's really helped me a lot!)
And, on my way home, I was talking to my fiance who told me what could have been terrible news! His best friend offered to do the photography for our wedding for us as a gift. Recently, she's been having difficulties with her marriage and the two of them got into a fight. She has now decided she might have feelings for my man, so she's not going to do our wedding. So, we found another photographer (maybe two) who is available on our date (which at 3 months to go, that's a miracle!) and they do videography, too, which I was slightly worried about not having! And, I won't have a woman at my wedding who might or might not have feelings for my groom!
Life is so what you make out of it! Today is my school bridal shower and I couldn't be in a better mood!!!
