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. emoticon

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!

    Ouch! I was having sympathy pain as I read your blog! Ouch again! But so glad to hear you are getting yourself organized for the new job... but of course sorry to hear about separation from Punim... I really identify with that one! You will both make it through though and get into the groove of a new schedule. I'm praying for you, including your health results, your baby Punim and your car selection. emoticon Keep us posted! Hugs, hugs, hugs! Karen

    Oh my goodness. You are so not a wimp. I can tolerate most anything and when I had mine done I screamed and cursed. I think my Dr was a bit taken back. Oh well, it was all her fault, after all. Hope you have a much better day.

    You are not a wimp - those biopsy's HURT! Sorry you had to go through that.

    I am glad to hear you are starting on your new schedule already. That is really smart. Great job!

    And WHERE in NW Indiana are you heading? Hmmmm. Not that I would have any alternative motive to this question.

    I hope your biopsy comes back okay. I had a total hysterectomy this fall and the tests and waiting to find out what's going on suck! Best of luck! emoticon
