*I'm not loving this heat wave.  It feels early for it to be this hot, this many days in a row.  But it is summer, so I guess I'd better just get used to it.  : pbbt:

*I have decided that I hate my haircut.  :sad:  I tried to like it for a couple days but nope.  I feel like I look like a Qtip.  It's too short and my curls just got curlier with it short.  Not a good look.  That said, I asked for shoulder length and it is definitely not shoulder length.  :mutmad:  That's 2 of the last 3 haircuts that I've just not been thrilled with and usually I'm very low maintenance and love what she does.  :sad:

*I had my well visit doctor visit yesterday.  I left feeling kind of salty about many things.  I'm not loving the whole push these tests because you are approaching 50 thing.  Also, since when is my smaller size a detriment?  I had to hear about the risks associated with my "small stature".  Um excuse me, I'm not underweight.  And I do plenty of weight bearing exercise, my bones are plenty dense.  Trust me, with how clumsy I am, we'd know if bone density was an issue.  :roll::laugh:  But, I am shrinking.  :roll:  I've lost a half inch of height.  :cry:

*Joseph has 44 of his 50 driving hours logged.  :cool:  And I scheduled his test for next Friday.  :happy:  We'll keep driving at the same rate, going over will only help him feel more prepared.

*I miss Anthony.  A lot.  I'm not sure why all the sudden it's hard.  Maybe because next week is his birthday and I know he won't be home for it.  :sad:

All doc visits are CYA. Gotta be strong with what you want:hug:

Sorry about the heat. It hasn't really felt super hot here. Maybe all the rain is keeping us cooler or I just love the heat. There has been a lot of humidity but last week's weather was downright awesome. This week is the same. Just lots of popup storms. I hope it cools down for ya!

I know I complain about having my kids all the time and I don't miss them when they are with their dad, but I can't imagine the time when they actually leave for good. Empty nest terrifies me. How often do you talk to him?:hug::hug::hug: I'm sorry you will miss his birthday:cry:

I guess you’re being hounded for a colonoscopy too, eh? : pbbt:

When I was talking to the doctor at my visit for the biopsy I expressed my concern for my weight. It has been a real struggle the past couple of years and I think 99% of it is related to female stuff (that is out of my control) and I was trying to tell her just that. She had no concern for it at all, telling me I’m fine, etc. NO, I am not. I am over the high end of the healthy side for my age and height. But, somehow it’s all okay that everyone is 20+ heavier than they should be now. She made the comment how she needed to lose 40 lb. and I’m sitting there thinking, “No, you need to lose more like 80-100 lb.” Seriously? I know the truth hurts sometimes but lets be realistic here.

Constant force of gravity is pulling you toward the ground, making you shorter. Hang upside down. : pbbt:

I think many doctors, along with most of the public, have forgotten what normal looks like in regards to body size.  I'm just over 130 pounds, so while I am fairly lean, I am in no way tiny.  :roll:
Parent - - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-06-14 8:40 AM
how tall are  you?
Parent - - By Mickeyd Date 2017-06-14 8:46 AM
5'8 1/2"
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-06-14 9:50 AM
I would think 130 would be perfect for that height!
Parent - By kelly_v Date 2017-06-14 8:19 AM
agreed on the heat wave, it seems too early for sure

I always wonder if they are pushing tests for a good reason or just to make $$
Parent - - By Ballet [us] Date 2017-06-14 11:20 AM
The test pushing is a CYA thing.  That said, I'm 55 and no colonoscopy yet.  I guess medical people make the worst patients. :wink:
Parent - - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-06-14 11:43 AM
I have a hard time with the CYA concept (took me awhile to figure out what you all were talking about) because it’s not like the medical profession is held accountable and/or takes responsibility for their fuck ups unless you go hire a lawyer and sue their ass. My cat lady is dealing with a staff infection in her arm......under the care of a wound specialist because it is so bad at this point......that she got from when she was in the hospital. Of course that has greatly affected all her other issues and recovery she’s dealing with.
Parent - By Ballet [us] Date 2017-06-14 12:04 PM
There are a ton of lawsuits.  I have to root through drs boxes everyday to look for faxed rxs to work on, and every day in many of their boxes are law firm documents.  The AMA sets certain standards for what types of tests should be done at any given age, and the med profession has to adhere with recommending.  It doesn't mean patients have to submit to them.  They say it's recommended, patient can refuse, that is documented, and that's all.

I tried to run dammit:mutmad::shocker!:

Run camp started last night and Tj was so hyped up afterward. He was so cute. He is in the littlest group and there is only one kid smaller than he is. I think run camp is a hit.

Ripley didn't run a fast pace mile with my mom. But she is like me and competitive when around others so finished their main run in second place. She was so funny that she was second. Already talking about how to beat the girl in front of her. :laugh: :proud: Love run camp.

Went home and had Tj time since Rip spent the night with my parents. I let him stay up late and watch Animal mechanicals so he was happy: pbbt: Tonight he will spend the night with my parents and Rip and I will have mommy-daughter time. I swear she lives for mommy-daughter time. :hug:

Finally ordered a duvet cover. Not the one I wanted but it was pretty and $35 bucks. So.....even if it doesn't last long it was a great deal! Duvet cover

Swim lessons still haven't gotten started. Teenagers:roll: Might have to find someone else.:meh:

This is so cool - Wonder Woman story
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2017-06-14 6:30 AM
Run camp sounds like a great experience. :cool:
Parent - - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-06-14 6:33 AM
New bedding is always nice. :grin: Change things up. :happy:
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-06-14 6:36 AM
and sure as heck can't beat the price. Now i need new pillows. Mine are way old.
Parent - - By kelly_v Date 2017-06-14 8:21 AM
Run camp sounds great. and alternating special mommy time sounds pretty good too.

did you get the turquoise duvet?
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-06-14 8:40 AM
Parent - - By Ballet [us] Date 2017-06-14 11:21 AM
The Run Camp sounds great!
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-06-14 11:32 AM
It really is. They do classes and drills and games and work up their endurance. Tj will run the 1mile at the finish and Rip will do a 5k.

--I’m missing this season of my white trash TV but I guess there is a bit of turmoil going on with The Bachelor. :shocker!: Not surprising. :roll:

--Ordered some new business cards since I had my cell phone number on the previous ones. Also added a backside where I can write the next appointment. I also put a bit of information to the effect of “This time is set aside for you. If you miss your appointment, or give less than 6 hours notice to cancel or reschedule, please be prepared to pay for the scheduled session in full”. I need to crack down. I don’t really feel like I’m the one to have to teach consideration and manners but when it’s negatively affecting me then it’s time to step in. :meh:

--Second year in a row this father/son duo in town has qualified for the Senior Olympics. TA is 86 or 87 years old and he qualified in golf. His son is early 60’s. I want to say he is doing the triathlon but he may be in a shorter distance running event. Nonetheless, you’d think our newspaper might have a little spread on them. Nope. :roll: Pretty impressive feat if you’d ask me.

--I have a clump of 4-5 bites on my butt cheek. :wtf: Spider? Mosquito? :cry:

--Girl is picking up the futon today so I’m going to get the spare bed frame taken apart and stored out at the acres. The mattress pad that I had on there is really nice. New, thick. I put that on our bed and pitched the old. Iowa’s pillow also ended up in the garbage. : pbbt: That thing was gross. I have 4-5 extra pillows (a couple Tempur-Pedic ones) so he’ll have a good selection for a replacement. He’ll probably never even notice as long as there is a pillow there. :wink:

--I scheduled a 90 minute massage for Saturday. I can’t forget I have it. :blush: Geez, I rarely ever coming in on a Saturday.

I like the sound of your new business cards:cool: Good for you!

Bachelor in Paradise - is it the same show as the Bachelor?

Newspapers and non-school sports = losers.
Parent - - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-06-14 6:44 AM
Yea, I think that’s the same show. I just saw a news blurb on Yahoo. One dude, lots of attractive women and a boat load of alcohol. WTF does one expect?
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-06-14 6:50 AM
Yeah, the morning radio show talks about it every morning. Never seen any but sounds like that one version of the show might be done for. Seems like quite a liability for the show producers. Men, women, paradise, alcohol....what do you expect?:shocker!:
Parent - - By kelly_v Date 2017-06-14 9:19 AM
I've always imagined that was every season of Bachelor(ette) so I can't figure out why this one is suddenly "misconduct"
Parent - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-06-14 10:39 AM
Obliterated, falling down, slobbery, passed out drunk vs. just drunk. Come on, there is a difference. :roll::mischief:
Parent - - By Mickeyd Date 2017-06-14 8:05 AM
I hope they aren't flea bites.  The one time I had an issue with fleas, I got a cluster of bites on my ankles just under my sock line.  :wtf:  And those suckers itched forever.  :cry:
Parent - - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-06-14 8:52 AM
Oh no, they aren't fleas. I stay on top of the NexGuard w/ Meadow.
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2017-06-14 8:54 AM
That's great.  Whatever it is that bit you, I hope it's gone.
Parent - - By kelly_v Date 2017-06-14 8:22 AM
good idea on adding the language to the cards

running around the acres naked are you?
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-06-14 8:40 AM
Parent - By spiritbear [us] Date 2017-06-14 10:40 AM
Not yet. : pbbt:
Parent - By Ballet [us] Date 2017-06-14 11:24 AM
The whole Bachelor franchise is really past it's prime.  I still watch a little, but I need to walk away.
Parent - - By kelly_v Date 2017-06-14 8:25 AM
Commute this morning was over 2x normal thanks to a crash and subsequent awful traffic

So since I was late I got breakfast :laugh:

Have to go to another client meeting today for a Medicare presentation. It throws my whole day off and I need office time since I was out Monday and worked from home yesterday

My house is a disaster. Since it's just me there this week I haven't felt motivated to put some stuff away :laugh:

Had someone lined up to pick up some free maternity clothes from me last night. At 9pm she still hadn't come so I messaged her and she said her DIL (for whom she was picking up the clothes) had to go to the ER. I know it sounds terrible but I don't believe her for some reason. I just had a feeling she was going to flake and I was right.

Organized B's clothes yesterday. OMG this child has so many clothes it is crazy. I forgot I'd gotten some 6 month stuff and it is now overflowing.
Parent - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-06-14 8:41 AM
Come see my house....just wait till B starts making his own messes:mischief:

Yikes on the bad commute.
Parent - - By Mickeyd Date 2017-06-14 8:53 AM

>Since it's just me there this week I haven't felt motivated to put some stuff away :laugh:

Since it's just me this week, I have had to handle everything and haven't had time to put some stuff away. 

There, I fixed it for you.  :hug:

Dang!! I'm using that every week!:shocker!::blush:

That's awesome!
Parent - By Ballet [us] Date 2017-06-14 11:26 AM
I hope B is feeling and sleeping better!
Parent - - By Ballet [us] Date 2017-06-14 11:36 AM
*Done with last patient, but I don't dare leave early because I need the PTO time.

*MIL passed away last Friday afternoon w/ dh and SIL at her side.  She had been unresponsive for 2 days prior to that so her actual passing was peaceful.  Memorial TBD, but will probably be sending her ashes off the Gulf coast, which is what they did w/ FIL.

*Girls are volunteering all this week at a special needs kid's camp.  They love it, but they are exhausted every afternoon when they get home.  I'm happy to see them getting out and doing something productive.
Parent - By kelly_v Date 2017-06-14 1:46 PM
sorry to hear about MIL but sounds like it was peaceful. How is your H handling it?
Parent - - By Photocat [us] Date 2017-06-14 1:47 PM
Your daughters are quite the role models:hug:

So sorry about your MIL:hug:

PTO is awesome.....I haven't decided if I'm going to cash out my remainder or roll it over. I need the cash but I've had extra PTO every year so far.
Parent - By kelly_v Date 2017-06-15 10:23 AM
maybe do both? Save a couple extra days but then cash out the rest if you've got an abundance.  Or start taking mental health days
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2017-06-14 7:38 PM
I'm so sorry to hear about your MIL.   :hug:
