Survival Tactics

Ahhhh, the test is over and I am healthy! The preparation period went well, as I scheduled a full slate of things to distract me from the anticipation and the actual "drinking the drink." Here is what I found when I got home from work to begin the process....I'd left a winter sweater on the end of my bed to remind me to put it away in my winter storage box, but Ms G had a better idea. She dragged the sweater to her nest (an old piece of my clothing which I arrange for her every morning). She was highly incensed when the turquoise sweater was taken away...1st diversion.
After that, I spent the after noon ironing the fabrics for the quilt I'm making for Teddy. I did a goodly amount of cutting, too. They look so pretty and Ms G thought they would make a nice nest, too, so they had to be covered, for fear the entire quilt would be gray!
After a night of little or no sleep, due to hunger and stomach pain, I began my next diversions, designed to lift my spirits, now sorely sagging due to hunger. I gave myself a really nice manicure and pedicure, then a facial. A rare treat. LM finally arrived to get me to the facility for the test to be done at 11:30........I was shaking, cold and nervous, and none too happy when it was announced that there would be a 45 minute delay. UGH. They took me in after an hour and nicely covered me with heated blankets. My ability to meditate saved me at this point and I even fell into a nice sleep. It was 2 pm before they did the procedure. I sure was glad to be put to sleep for the duration. It's over and I was so happy to see LM and to get home. Ms G awaited me and we had a nice nap for two hours.
Now to rest up some more and get ready for a full week of dog sitting for my boss....Sammy and Liza, see you tomorrow!
