So I finally got up early enough this morning to go and get my blood work done for the doctor – scared the hell out of me, too, but at least now it’s over. I’m sure there are a lot of folks who’ve done this more often and think nothing of it at this point, but I absolutely hate needles and that’s all there is to it. I had a really bad experience as a child when some dumbass nurse took my samples wrong and had to redo them, so from there on out, I’ve never been a big fan of needles. I always say, no worries of me becoming a heroin addict here!

Anyways, fortunately it all went by rather fast and the lab guy took the hint when I turned my head just as far in the opposite direction as it could go and told him, “Just let me know when you’re done…” My appointment with the actual doctor to go over the results is next week, so I guess we’ll just have to see what happens. My blood pressure hasn’t really changed all that much since I started measuring it, but then again, I can’t exactly say that I’ve been trying very hard recently, either. It always takes so much longer (and costs more) to prepare healthier food, but I guess that’s just something that I’m going to have to get used to…

In other news, the next couple of weeks are going to be very busy. I didn’t go to Disney last weekend like I had planned and now I can’t go again until 4/22, so I’ve decided that I’m going to shoot to get a lot of my creative stuff done and online by then so that I can go play in style! I’ve got a feeling these three weeks is going to fly by very fast and I really have a whole lot of stuff to do, but it’s really past time that I kicked this laziness / procrastination / whatever and got it all done. Another two weeks after that, I’ll be flying up to Michigan for Lori’s wedding and I’m really looking forward to all of that, so there’s all the more incentive to get everything done now so that it won’t even be on my mind during my vacation. So if you see me having any fun over the next couple of weeks, tell me to quit screwing around and get back to work, will ya?! 😉

Time for bed. Tomorrow is a new day, and one that does not include needles, at that. It’s sounding better already…

    No, ma’am! Not even one of those rub on ones, just based on principle…

    Nah – my fear and I are happy right where we are … I stay over here, acting all nonchalant and so forth, while he stays over in the corner, waiting for the next opportunity to rear his ugly head. We have sort of a system worked out – no sense in taunting the caged lion…

    Also, I would look ridiculous with a tattoo.
