AND LO, A FROSTY MORN...

Oh, look at me, will you?  Trying to get all poety with it at 8:15 in the morning.

What has me up at the crack of dawn, you ask?  Well, when you're me and you go to one doctor on a Monday, all of the other doctors decide that they want to see you too.  So today I get to go play patient once again and re-assure everybody that, yes, I still live in the same place, I'm still the lovable and portly spinster they've grown so very fond of, and my insurance has not changed since yesterday.

But I ask you, dear friends.  Do they really need to weigh me every single tootin time?  If I weighed a gazillion pounds yesterday, don't you think I'll be pretty close to that today?  I'm sure there's some brainiac out there who could calculate this, but what are the odds that I'm going to get on the scale as a petite blonde triathlete today?

Victorian Ribbons will be completed today or I'm giving up stitching forever.  Absolutely no excuse for not stitching last night other than the fact that I couldn't figure out how to manage it, two sleepy puppies, a heating pad, a vat of ice water, and a bowl of  soup all together at once in the Happy Chair.

I am such an amateur.

Happy happy joy joy to you and yours today!  Do something spectacular and then tell us all about it.
Woo Hoo!

  2. Have fun at the doctor! When I asked the nurse why I needed to weigh in within 18 hours of my last visit, she got testy with me. Same with the question, "Have you traveled to West Africa?" They don't get the space/time continuum. I just hope they don't go too rote on the treatment.

  4. I am such a fan of yours! Every post is literary genius! I would love to drop in to your gorgeous house for a spot of tea and actually see the fabulous art you are creating in spite of your unfortunate ailments. Hope things only get better throughout 2016!

  5. I tell them "NO", I'm not getting on the scale today. They look a little surprised, say nothing, and walk on by the scale. No problemo! Just because they say so, doesn't mean we have to do it. Coni....Just say NO. ;-) It works every time.

  6. I really do not like getting on the scale either, but doing Weight Watchers for the last 2 years, I've gotten used to what the numbers are, which is not pretty sometimes. I do have a question because I must have missed something, when did you become a 2 puppy household, and what is your 2nd puppy's name?

  8. Someone once said this to me: Life is what happens while you are making plans for it.
    It seems to be true for me. I hope by this time today you are happily at home in the stitchy chair with dogs and relaxing. Hugs to every one in your home!!

  10. I told my gastroenterologist I wasn't getting on the scale. They're okay with that. Because they do know what you weigh. (Now if I had a gastrointestinal disease that made me waste away, I'd let them weigh me. But I don't, so I don't.)

  11. Ha! I know what you mean. I was weighed at the doc recently too and it had been awhile since my last visit and I have gained weight. The nurse asked me if I work out. Really!?

  12. I do so love your posts! For the life of me, I can't figure out where the second dog came from - did I miss a post? How is Stewey managing with a second dog? My apologies if you have already shared this.

  13. Have I missed the post? I know I'm woefully behind on reading blogs, but are you babysitting Bosco, or does Stewey have a sibling??

  14. I hope the doctors visits are quick and that you finish Victorian Ribbons, I would be so sad if you quit stitching :)
