My last annual checkup was in 2007. So I don’t suppose I can be too miffed the doc wants to see me again before he’ll refer me even to the dermatologist for a routine visit.
But I want blood work in hand when I see the doctor in a couple of weeks, so am having blood drawn today, and have to be NPO for 12 hours to do this, and I’m not a happy camper.
I just took the dog on a longer-than-usual walk (staying inside near fridge-temptation is harder than sitting on the front porch) and, passing the garden, reflexively popped a cherry tomato in my mouth, but spit out the second one when I remembered (and only after thinking that was the best tomato I might ever have tasted!) Do you think that will skew my blood sugar numbers?
I was going to wait until about 11 to get to the doctor’s office but I don’t think I’m going to hold out that long. I have a long list of stuff to do before a 1:15 meeting in Christiansburg. The first stop will be a Panera Bread for coffee and a bagel! I’ll likely add to this post from the road between Best Buy (my keyboard died) and K-Mart (my watch died) and the camera store to look at the Nikon D300 and D700.
The problem with living so far from stores of any kind is that, when I get to a real town, my list is usually a little long, and I feel like Shopping Man–a role I don’t wear very well, here in the “mindful consumption” half of my life.
Isn’t this the kind of blah-blah-blog post that gives blogging a bad name? My apologies, but I’m too antsy and shaky to be very creative at the moment. Move over, Jerry Seinfeld, you’re not the only person who can create something about NOTHING.
