Things are moving in the right direction

I was supposed to have today off, so I got up and went for a walk. It was later than normal (I could not for the life of me fall asleep last night), so I only went out for a half hour. Came home showered, made coffee. Then the phone rang...work needed me, so in I went.
Luckily, my boss was able to cover me at the end of the day so I didn't miss my call from the transplant coordinator. She called, later than I expected, and we spoke for about 40 minutes. I was worried that some things from my past might stop me from donating, so it was good to speak to someone.
She's going to mail (and send?) the stuff I need to start doing the lab tests. Luckily, I don't have to go down there until further along in the process. I am NOT a person who enjoys driving, let alone in the big city! She also told me that they will now pay for 1 night in a hotel when I do come down...awesome!
Food wise, I am trying to keep this process in the forefront of my mind. I caved in last night and ate 4 mini brownies (oh, how I love them). Luckily, I didn't go over my calorie limit, so it's all good. In my mind, I bought the brownies on Sunday to see if they would be worth taking to an office function on Thursday. Who am I kidding! I wanted to eat them myself! At this point, I will have to get more for the party. I wanted to bring fruit, but someone else already has that covered.
I may just drop them off at my other job tomorrow, so they aren't taunting me from the kitchen!
Have a great day everyone!
