Cold and Concoctions

Good grief, it was freezing yesterday--down to 58 degrees. I actually wore my all-weather coat, which has a warm, zip-out lining, to go to the library. Had the "light breakfast" (what I have everyday, one slice of toast with cottage cheese and half an orange; coffee, too, of course)but started the regime at lunch and had just chicken broth and soda.
Then, to keep my mind off my stomach, I went though my financial papers--receipts and so on--for income tax purposes. Must find an accountant soon.
I suddenly decided to get a manicure to match my toes. Drove to "Jessica's Spa" and had to take off my shoe and sock to look at the color. Couldn't find an exact match, but the manicurist was able to come up with something close. Had them done and they look spiffy.
El called to say she had fulfilled her jury duty obligation, so we don't have to worry about that anymore. She'll be here at 8:30 to take me to THE ORDEAL PLACE.
Stopped at my mail box before I went in and found an envelope marked "fragile" from my friend in New Mexico. Hurried in to open it and found a beautiful, handmade necklace. I love it and called her right away to thank her.
As for my activities after 6:00 pm, when I had to take the first of the vile "prep" concoction for THE ORDEAL, I'll leave that to the imagination. It's now just after 6:00 AM, and I've downed the second horrible sixteen ounces. Ugh, ugh, double ugh, and now I have to drink 32 ounces of water by 7:00. No coffee, either--can't wait until this is over.

Can't wait til you write it's over. Hope it wasn't too bad. I think the prep is the worst part, don't you?

Yes, sure, Pat, but the actual procedure is no picnic. However, I'm thrilled and overjoyed to be told after, that my anemia is caused by an ulcer. Medication has been prescribed and I'm just so happy it wasn't something else. Happy birthday!
