Today was my first day of training myself for my new schedule. I got up at 6 - an hour and a half later than I estimate I'll need to wake up for the job. I drank some tea, did my step aerobics, got dressed, took the dog to daycare. (He's got to start learning we're going to be spending less time together.
Tonight I'm typing this from bed. It is 9:42, I'm all ready for lights out, with the plan of being ready for sleep by 10. It should be no problem. It was a long day.
Today was the lady doctor appointment. The one I've been trying to get for at least 6 months. I not only did the annual, but I needed to have things checked out to see why my hormones are so out of whack. Talk about a full appointment! I was there for THREE HOURS. Much of it was waiting, some was recovery. I had all of my fluids checked, blood work and everything, and then came the most painful thing I've ever experienced.
And I don't care if tests show I need another one of these: I'm just not doing it. Not without being restrained and drugged out of my mind.
This was a uterine biopsy. I may be a wuss, but I'm generally tense but quiet during painful doctor things, like root canals. Let's just say that there was screaming involved. The rest of the day was a wash. I was crampy and exhausted all the rest of the day. I stopped off on the way home to buy Punim's food, (probably not the day to be carrying 40 lbs of food, but he was nearly out.)
Bonus joy (a real one) The loyalty program with the food he eats gives you a free bag after the purchase of 10. So this month's food was F R E E!
Then I came home and went to bed. I was so uncomfortable that I called and asked for Punim to be dropped off at home this evening. I could not walk the two miles.
I ate well today, I worked out, I got rest and a tad bit of cleaning done. So except for the nasty three hours, it was a mighty fine day.
I think I've settled on a car. I've driven a couple of Elantras in the past week at dealerships, and I really think this is the car for me. There is one in NW Indiana that looks really good, it is a 2010, low mileage, and well within my price range. I've got a couple of other cars to look at, but I really think this is the one.
Then all I'll have to do is buy a back seat protector and take Punim to the dog-friendly forest preserve!
