Visit with the gynecologist

So I had my first appointment with the gynecologist today.  Turns out the blood tests the doctor ordered weren't exactly correct SO I have to have some more.  No doubt it is just the beginning.  I had one lot today, as it did not matter when I had them, and the sooner the better, right?  The next lot I have to have are on day 2 of my next cycle.  *sigh*  When one works 4 days on, 4 days off, 6am to 6pm, things like this make it kinda tricky.  I guess, when someone works anywhere it makes it kinda tricky.  The main thing is I really dislike having to take time off of work to do these kinds of things.  I know a lot of people do it without a second thought, but me, I prefer to get them organised on my days off.  Luckily two of my team leaders at work are female, and one has been struggling with infertility herself, so I am sure it won't be too much of a problem.  A slightly larger problem is that if I get my period on Friday, I have to get to medlab on Saturday and, if the Medlab in H.town is not open on a Saturday then I have to go to N.P, which is an hour in the opposite direction to work *sigh*.  I love living rurally and working in a small town BUT sometimes it is a bit inconvenient.  Of course if I get my period on Saturday then I have to wait until Monday, nowhere medical will be open in this neck of the woods on a Sunday ... lol

On another note I decided to travel 2.5 hours away to a show to take photos on Saturday.  So I just put it 'out there' ie on an internet chat board, that I would be there, and I MIGHT go on Sunday as well.  Well two people have said that they are riding on Sunday and would like some photos SO I get to travel 2.5 hours away on Sunday as well.  I would have stayed the night BUT I have to be back in Hawera for a work 'do' on Saturday night *sigh*.  And there is no guarantee that I will sell any photos, thus 'make' any money.  I am more than happy to do it as it will get my name out there.  Then after Sunday I have to get back, get to bed as I need to be up a 4.45am to resume my work 'week'.  THEN Tuesday TJL and I are off out to a comic in NP.  I  AM  GOING  TO  BE  SO  TIRED!

And I am not even going to begin thinking about my next days off.  Lets just say it involves more appointments, more driving, and another show, and on and on it goes.  Talk about BUSY season!  And its only just begun.

Very exciting though.

I love it!

God, You are just Awesome!

I think I need to walk around with a dictaphone

I quite often (ie every day) have totally wonderful, insightful, and sometimes funny blog posts assailing my brain.  These occur when I am driving, walking the dog, in practically all situations where I do not have access to a computer.  Then, as soon as I get back and in front of the computer nothing.  Nada.  It's all just gone, and my head is empty *sigh*.

I did come to the conclusion today that I am addicted to TV.  Have I mentioned that before?  I am pretty sure that I have.  And I am pretty sure that it is the root of ALL of my problems.  Not to say that if I manage to cut down my viewing time considerably that I won't have any problems BUT I think that they would be considerably lessened as I would start to feel SO much better about myself *ding ding ding*, folks we have a winner.

So I think I will set myself a 30 day TV challenge.  One that will severely limit my TV watching.  Beginning tomorrow, day 1, I will NOT turn the TV on first thing in the morning.  I will use my new CD player instead (the one that I HAD to have, and haven't used at all yet), and listen to uplifting music while doing far more productive stuff that watching the magic box.  I mean lets face it, reading a comic book would be far more productive than watching the magic box.

Lucky I have a couple of appointments in the big smoke tomorrow so that will fill in a lot of my day.  One of which is my first Gynecologist appointment.  I have no idea what to expect, and I will be going alone as TJL has the AB technician coming, and other farming chores to do.  So it will be interesting I guess.  I wonder what will happen ....
