I'm sure you are probably just as sick of reading about the marathon as I am of thinking about it. I wish I was excited, but I'm just super nervous. I will just be so happy when it's all over! Jerry, the kids, and I are going down to Cleveland on Friday morning. The marathon isn't until Sunday, so we'll spend some time doing fun things with the kids on Friday and Saturday. Jessica is staying in a hotel with our friends Andrea and Renee, who are coming to cheer us on (how awesome is that?!)
After my run this morning, I showered and got ready for my colposcopy appointment that I've been dreading. I had to go into the procedure room, which I've never had to do before. I took some Motrin before I left home, so I was hoping for a painless procedure.
The whole thing felt a lot like a pap smear, only it took longer (and was more uncomfortable--I don't want to say "less comfortable" because a pap smear isn't exactly comfortable!). She had to put vinegar on my cervix, then look at it under some high-powered microscope. Then she had to take a couple of tissue samples (which was extremely uncomfortable, but not very painful). And the worst part was actually afterward, when she had to apply pressure (to stop the bleeding from where she took the tissue sample). I was just clenching my teeth with my eyes squeezed shut waiting for it to be over. It was such a weird feeling. Then it was done, and there was no pain or anything afterward.
After I left the OB/GYN, I went to Dick's and returned that Nathan's hand held water bottle; then I went to Victoria's Secret to get another free pair of panties. I love that they are sending me coupons for free panties! I have no idea how I got on that mailing list, but it's one mailing list that I don't mind being on. While I was there, I browsed around so I wouldn't look like I was just there for the free panties, and naturally, I ended up buying something
Del, my friend (and ex-boss from when I worked at Curves) called me this afternoon. She was wondering if I might want to work at Curves again! I talked to her about the hours and all that, but I couldn't commit to it, because I wouldn't have anyone to watch my kids on a routine basis. So I ended up telling her that she could use me as a contingent employee. She'll call me when she needs someone, and if I can work it out, I'll go in and work. Working at Curves was a really fun job, and I would love to go back in there occasionally!
I just realized that today is the anniversary of when I met Jerry...
