Well, the day started out very nice. Got to spend some time with the husband and then headed for the doctors to give them a vile of blood to test for thyroid. But when I got there there was not lab slip and when I checked at the doctors in the next suite, they had nothing on the computer and my doctor was off for the day. Just have to love it. They are the ones who called yesterday to tell me to get in and give the sample so the referral can go through for the Endo. But you know what? I looked at it as a message from the Gods – “You gave a ton of blood yesterday for better tests to see what is going on so don’t bother with this one” Works for me…
On the way home I stopped at the dentists and got an appointment for friday. They are crazy as well. This group has a bunch of different offices, but they are not connected so if you went to another office they get confused. I had to spend 5 minutes explaining that I had the mold done for the cap at their office then they moved the dentist to another office so I had to go there to be fitted and followed up but I have no intention of switching offices. They finally got it.
But then the good stuff started. I went to our Prayer Shawl Ministry meeting at Church. I have never met most of the other knitters before. It was really a nice meeting. Makes me want to be more serious about my knitting. Also found out the nuns who run the program have a back log of shawls because people seem to have forgotten about the program. A letter was read from one of the people who received a shawl and it was so moving. The woman has cancer and is going through treatments and takes the shawl with her to the hospital as it is warm and comforting for her. I have sent them in the past to two cousins who lost both their mother and father. And gave one to my daughter in law when she was pregnant. There are so many times when they can be given. So hope we get a good response to putting out some info to our community.
Then I drove to the Senior Center and did 45 minutes of yoga. That was great although I fear I will be stiff tomorrow. She really worked us. I love the class. One of the insurance companies provides the program. Learning how to walk properly as I get older, how to sit and stand, how to build the core muscles etc. It is a good thing to learn for sure. Just have to get in the habit of doing it at home
Well, that was my day… and I am not watching the debate tonight. Watching NCIS since I love action and cop shows. No great thoughts on anything or opinions or anything. And be sure to root for the Bills on Thursday night.
