I am super anxious today!! And super stressed :(
I found out this morning that my trip to Alabama next week is still on despite the government shut down, so I will be away next week. I have had mixed feelings because I know its good for my career to go and teach these small classes - I just dont really want to travel. I think I got my travel arrangements taken care of this morning. Usually you can get the govt to pay for a rental car because its cheaper to fly to Atlanta and then drive 2 hours to Montgomery; but the contracted flight prices changed and it is now no longer cheaper to do that. And rental cars arent authorized if you fly directly to Montgomery. I priced them though and rental cars arent too expensive for the week, so I might pay out of my own pocket for one. I hate going there without a rental car because then you are effectively stuck there and cant get food, etc. I like to stop at the grocery store and buy breakfast food and snacks for the week, and be able to go places for dinner! We shall see what I decide to do.
I got my leave request approved for this Friday, so I am still getting my 3-day weekend even though I have to travel on Monday. But it's stressing me out because I have to get a bunch of stuff done before I leave next week, and I took the day off so I could get stuff at home done. Which means I only have today and tomorrow to get work stuff done... I just gave my paralegal some stuff to do for me - hopefully that keeps her busy, too. I am going to be out of the office this afternoon for a doctor's appointment, and tomorrow I already have two meetings scheduled in the late afternoon. I just have to relax and take a breather...
My GI appointment is finally today. I am so worried that the doctor wont take me seriously because that is how I feel all of my healthcare has been recently. I decided to make a list of all of my stomach problems to take with me so that I dont forget to say something. Hope it goes well...
I also made a list of all of the things I want to get done at home this weekend. It's quite ambitious, but I am hopeful I can get most of it done. And I know I will feel better if I do, and then I come back after my trip to a clean, well-organized house.
Last night in my hip hop class, my teacher told us that she is thinking of using Justin Timberlake's "Suit and Tie" song as our recital dance. I am not a huge fan of the song, but I like her concept. I kind of hope she changes the song, though. ;) There is a tap class on Tuesday nights before my hip hop class that I thought was for teenagers, but one of the ladies in my jazz class is in the tap class also, and she is older than me. So now I am thinking I might sign up for the tap class, too. You know, with all of the free time I have in my life!
Ok, that is it for me. I will keep you updated on how my doctor's appointment goes!
