Fortune of the Day:
Your job will not teach you about life.
UPDATE: I just got my review copy of Ransom & Fortune from the publisher and OMG it’s FANTASTIC! I am so excited!!!!! (Can you tell?)
Wellâ€¦ I was sick most of the weekend. Which totally sucked. I almost felt normal yesterday but then I woke up this morning still sick. And I wonâ€™t go into all the gory details. Just suffice it to say itâ€™s an intestinal virus and itâ€™s N-A-S-T-Y.
I went in to work for all of an hour when I decided this was dumb and it was time for me to go. So I left and called Dr. Mom on the way home. She told me to go to the doctor and I decided she was probably right. Mom does know best, after all. I called and my regular doctor was booked so I said â€œGive me ANY doctor thatâ€™s availableâ€. There was a 9:30.
Since I was sitting in the parking lot of the place, and it was a half hour till appointment time, I went inside anyway. I had a book, so I figured Iâ€™d just read until they called my name. I sat down, read exactly ONE page, and they called my name. Weird. The nurse weighed me â€“ Iâ€™ve lost another two pounds, probably because I canâ€™t keep anything on my stomach, and then she took my temperature and blood pressure.
A few minutes later the doctor came in and OMG he was incredibly cute. No wedding ring. Dark haired (like Dane! No lie!), brown eyes, nice dark complexion. I text msgâ€™d my friend, â€œAt the doctor and heâ€™s hot!â€ Her reply was, â€œGo get him!â€ As if. Iâ€™m too shy. I knowâ€¦hard to believe, huh?
Do you know how difficult it is to tell an incredibly CUTE doctor you haveâ€¦wellâ€¦intestinal problems? Crap, itâ€™s even hard to tell a not-so-good-looking doctor that! I actually babbled like an idiot in there too and my mouth was all dry and it felt like I had cotton on my tongue and my upper lip kept sticking to my teeth. Wow. What a horrible first impression. He probably thought I was just another ditz. He was nice, though, he wrote me a prescription for some drugs that should set me right. Hopefully by tomorrow.
This afternoon my son goes for his eye exam. He hasn’t been wanting to wear his glasses as much lately, so itâ€™ll be interesting to see what the doctor says. Theyâ€™re going to dilate his eyes, so Iâ€™m sure the experience will be stellar. Canâ€™t wait for that.
As far as writing goes â€“ uhâ€¦ whatâ€™s that? Havenâ€™t done anything. Oh wait â€“ I have finished Season 2 of the serial and am about to start turning them in. Then itâ€™s on to Season 3. I have a feeling I may end up rewriting some of this serial. I got a HUGE compliment from a friend of mine who read one of the issues. She said she was riveted the whole time and not once was she pulled from the story. *beam*
Okay, enough gushing. Iâ€™m home trying to control my â€œissueâ€ until time to take the boy to the doctor and then Iâ€™ll be sitting in a doctorâ€™s office for the rest of the afternoon. :dead:
