I’m out to dinner, maybe with myself or with others and I eat what ever I want and I can because I’ve been exercising and eating right for 30 years. I can treat myself. Further I don’t have to run home because my children are either grown or older teens. So after I eat, I mosey around for an hour or two and when I get ready I return home.
I’m packing a bag because we have to go to the doctor’s. I make sure I bring plenty of toys to distract them from the wait and magazines and writing for me so that I don’t go nuts waiting. Doctor’s appointments are hard and I hate them.
I took one of the children to the doctors and it was SO easy. I made sure I bought some writing I had to do and my calendar. I asked her if she wanted to bring anything to do while we waited. She said no. We went at around 12:00 and there was NO wait. Then after the check up, we went next door to the library where I had a book called “Decision Making” on hold. We looked for a drawing book for her. We didn’t find much, so we ordered one to be delivered to our local library. When it comes to doctor appts, we’ve come a LONG, LONG, LONG, LONG way since 2002! Also she didn’t have to go to the doctor’s at all this year. The last time was August of 2012. Thank you God. Thank you God. Thank you God. 14 months ago
