Changing of The Clothes!

 I am so thankful for Today!!

I had to ask myself if there really was a "Yesterday....yesterday?"  And I have had to pinch myself to see if this morning is Today!

Now that's bad isn't it? 



This was me by late yesterday afternoon....

My yesterday, began with 2 lbs of sausage and 2 dozen biscuits.....as soon as these were all served up, I immediately had to get dressed for an 8:30 appointment with a doctor.... Oh...I'm sorry, they told me 8:30, my appointment card said 8:30, but they must have thought I needed a good rest in their waiting room....

Sonograms are fun aren't they??  NOT!  I had to get undressed, when just 60 minutes prior to that, I was getting dressed for the appointment....so, it was get dressed, get undressed and slip myself into some of those purdy navy blue paper shorts that make you feel like a true fashion diva..... a few minutes later, it was off with the shorts and time to get dolled up again...

I know that most of the Dr's are married, so you would think they would have some wisdom as to how long it takes a woman to get dressed?  And to think....they simply pull a curtain and expect us to get all those clothes back on in a matter of like 10 seconds....Any longer than that, and you have gone over your time..........This just might require additional charges!

Evidently....they are not very familiar with the actions that it takes and the twisting and turning that it takes when pulling up a pair of surgical support hose!! 

Back to those purty navy blue shorts....I was thinking it was mighty nice of them to give me those shorts, only to find out that the moment I lay back on the table....they took their scissors and made a huge cut all the way up the legs.......WHAT!!! They ruined my shorts!  Why put them on?  This was one step that could have saved me some time.....

Ok....Dr's visit is done.....and once again it's time to head to the local Wal-Mart for that one single little item....

27 registers and only 1 human operating them....(and, for my purchase, I couldn't use the self-check-out registers)

9 people later, I am done, only to create another problem for myself....I smelled the coffee at McDonald's....I ordered a small cup of coffee (knowing for sure that this was going to give me the boost that I was needing)  Wrong!

How many times have you ever been to a McDonald's and had to wait for the coffee to be made?  Me either!!
0000 times....until yesterday.....

There I am standing in line...waiting on my coffee, thinking to myself...."I am going to be late for the funeral of my dear friend."

Finally, I am out of there...I rushed home, only to get undressed again...shampoo my hair and get dressed again.....

By this time I had already changed clothes 5 times that day...

At last....I am dressed in time to attend the funeral services.  By 4:00, it's back home to change once again...(This time, I changed into sloppy, warm, comfy clothes)

30 minutes later....My sweetie is not feeling very well and he ask me to go to the store and pick up something that might ease his sick feeling.....

Here I go....YEP, you know exactly what I'm gonna say...I had to change once more....

I got all decked out for the grocery store, did my shopping and back home it was....Off with the clothes and on with the PJ's.......

and just to let you know....I am still sitting here with my PJ's on!!

Today....I might just bask in the comfort of these PJ's until (as some might say) the cows come home!!


Blessings Sweet Friends...

Hi Shug!

Oh my, you had one of THOSE days! I guess it makes us thankful for quiet, slow days that you can just put your feet up, read a good book!

I'm sure that you will be blessed for all of your changing . . . it really isn't easy for us girls to get in and out of our clothes you know. . . :0)

Glad you made it to the funeral, and prayers that your hubby is feeling better - now go take it easy!

Gentle Hugs,
Barb

I'm sorry, I DO sympathize, but you are just TOO funny today!!! Yes, I've often wondered about the paper clothes, when they are just going to take it all off to examine you!! I guess it's to give you some remaining shred of dignity! I hope your ultra sound went well and you get a good report??? I love that cow in the sidecar!! One of my favorite parts of the day is evening when everything is done. I shower, get into my jammies and robe, and PLANT myself on the couch with my laptop and computer, where I don't move till bedtime! I agree with you on your post below, Christmas things coming out too early. The only thing that should come out this early is maybe cards so we can get an early start on them. Yes, exactly, what is enough? I know we want to spoil our grandkids. And if you get something too early, by Christmas time they have something else they want!!

I feel for you Shug! In the past couple of years I've had so many Dr.s appointment it has felt like a job. I'll soon be wearing those sugical support hose...yuck! I have to have a vericose vein taken out, so I was waiting until the weather cooled off.
I'm sorry about your friend.
Hope hubby gets to feeling better.
Maybe you should try to relax tomorrow as well. :)

I declare this a PJ Day! I think you've earned the right to wear them all day if you want.

And I've had days like that. Yep.

(And I'm truly sorry that in the middle of it all, there was a funeral for a friend.)
