Time for another Pleasantly Disturbed Thursday.
First of all, I am disturbed that the Pleasantly Disturbed T shirts don't come in my size. Just because I am large (as in triple x by size AND rating...), it doesn't mean that I shouldn't get to wear a t-shirt! (Please go tell Duane you are on my side on this. Unless you aren't. Then, stay out of it!)
I went to the doctor the other day. It was time for my yearly blood test. Technically, I only need a blood test every year to see if I need to up my thyroid medication dosage, but the doc likes to take more and do a CBC every year. Only sometimes he has trouble finding a vein and sends me to the hospital to do it. I insisted that since I had to see him anyway to get him to refill my prescriptions (he wants to see me every few months because of hypertension. Mine, not his...), he'd take the blood.
He said that it is hard to find my vein sometimes. I told him that I had confidence in him. Then after he drew the blood, I said "GOOD JOB! I knew you could do it!" His new assistant had a hard time to keep from laughing. No the doctor did not laugh, but he smiled. He did laugh when I told his assistant which drawer he would find the right tubes in...
The Doc's assistant was a little surprised that I could watch the doctor draw my blood. I said "Hey, what the heck! It's only a vein! But I'd hate to be the one taking the blood... People sometimes get mad if you keep poking them. " Yes. TWSS.
Prayer group was WONderful on Monday. People are bringing in different worship songs for us to sing together. It is really great. Only problem I anticipate is that the ladies are talking about asking our music minister to start including these songs at Mass. I have a feeling it is a good thing we are getting a new pastor.... one who doesn't know that starting a women's prayer group was my (and Vicki's and Chris's) idea. Let the Music Wars begin!!
Today I go to the foot doctor. I got something weird growing just underneath my toenail. I hope he freezes it before cutting it because I am not nearly as laid back about my feet as I am about my veins.
