Remember, don't eat anything after midnight. Don't do like you usually do in the morning and walk into the kitchen with eyes half open and reach for a coffee cup. The aroma of coffee brewing will be such a temptation. But do not drink coffee in the morning.
Take a shower early and put on plenty of layers of warm clothes. Trudge out to the garage and push the button for the garage opener. Keep trying. Huh. Maybe minus nine degrees Fahrenheit is too cold for the automatic garage opener. Unplug the automatic doothingy, and pull up the huge heavy garage door. OOF. Heavy SOB isn't it. Two car garage isn't so much fun when the garage door has to be manually opened, huh. At least it didn't snow more during the night so the shoveling yesterday doesn't have to be repeated.
Icy slippery roads but at least the destination is only a few miles. Piles of snow at each corner, hard to see around the huge piles, can't tell if a car is coming. Pull out carefully at each corner. Whew. Made it to the big parking lot.
Walk inside, let them know I am there. They escort me to the back area. Nice lady puts that huge rubber band thing around my arm. Pump. OUCH. Do you have to take that much blood??
Whew. It is all over till next time. Hubby said he didn't know that having blood drawn at the clinic was a nerve wracking white knuckle experience for me. Hah. He will remember for next time. Guess I told him!! I need coffee.
