Some days end better than they start.
It's been a day. Went this morning to get my blood drawn seeing as my doctor gave me the order in late April and my next appointment is Thursday - I thought it was time to carry out that instruction.
This nice gal stuck the needle in so deftly I didn't even feel it go in and I thought - jackpot (!!!) I need to get her name and ask for her next time! Then she took it out and said "Y'know I'm really not comfortable with this amount of blood, it was coming out SO slowly though. Would you mind if I got some more from the other arm?"
"Oh." Guess I'll get her name for a different reason. As the day wore on that first needle stick got prettier and prettier, can't wait to see what it looks like tomorrow!
Dani left for school yesterday and came back today for a second load of stuff. She's feeling a little bit weepy-ish about the idea that she's moving out to a house - it's different than just going into a dorm. This is much more like adult living and it's that much more scary.
For her too. *sniff. sniff.*
Somehow I just feel too old right now to be sitting here with cramps like a 14 year old, drinking orange pop and watching TV.
Still, the day's not a total loss. I'm not just a creepy old lady scratching at random and not caring who sees me reaching into my bra to relieve an itch. I just found part of a cheddar sunchip in my cleavage.
Sometimes that's almost as good as finding a twenty in the pocket of your jeans!
