What a day I had today (Monday).  I was told that I had a doctor’s appointment at 7am for a fasting blood test with a urine test.  I know you all wanted to know that but it is important to the story.  The night before, I finished dinner at around 7:30pm.  My plan was to drink a lot of water before bed so when I wake up I can just get up and go to the doctor.  What really happened was I woke up several times in the middle of the night and then drank more water.  So, I didn’t sleep much.  Once I got up and left for the doctor’s office I thought I was on track.  I went to the office door, it’s locked.  I wait 10 min, still locked.  I decide to go home at 7:10am to check the doctor’s office website to make sure I didn’t get the day wrong.  I didn’t.  I got the time wrong.  My appointment was at 7:30am.  I made the appointment over the phone and wrote it down on my calendar while still on the phone and the woman said 7am.  Of course before I did this, I had to go to the bathroom.  I take my water bottle, go back, and get in there at 7:40am.  I wait about 5 min.  I have to reschedule because I have a phone interview at 8am that I didn’t want to be late for.  Rescheduled for 9:50am (still fasting).  I realize it is about 7:50am.  Since, it is school time I wasn’t sure if I could get home in enough time to get the call.  So I waited in the car in the parking lot of the doctor’s office for the interview.

It was cold in the car, but I figured I didn’t want to drive and miss it.  I do the interview, I don’t think they read my resume really so not much stock in it.  I probably could have canceled that.  After the interview, I went home waiting, drinking more water, and not eating.  I ended up at the doctor’s office on time, but another problem, I’m not a normal human.  I say that because people seem to have a hard time taking my blood out.  It usually takes 2 people to stick me with needles at least once in each arm.  They just say it’s not coming out very fast.  I’m not sure if that is my issue or theirs.  It’s not good for me though.  Every time I go there it’s more and more of an ordeal.  This time it was actually burning.  I may be some kind of alien creature with resistant blood.  That would be cool.  My arm was sore hours after I left there.  It’s about 12 hours later now and I just have one large spot that is still sore.  I think it’s crazy.  I have to go back to the doctor in a week for the results so I think I’ll have to complain or something.  If this spot is still sore tomorrow I’m going to call and ask them what I’m supposed to do about it.  I was tired, but not so much now.

As an aside, when I wake up I watch Mike & Mike on ESPN2.  Today, they were in St. Louis I think for the World Series (end of the season baseball game for the non-Americans).  Some cheerleaders came out, no idea why because there are none in baseball.  These girls had “SLU” on their tops.  I immediately thought, “do they have SLUT written on their shirts?!” LOL.  It was entertaining for the morning.
