Once again it’s Friday and I don’t know how we got here! Time is flying by. One week from tomorrow is CPA Boy and Special K’s wedding. I’m really excited, so excited I’m going to the doctor’s Monday and will probably get a shot in my foot so I can stand for longer periods of time. Usually he does the shot right on top on the bone which isn’t super pleasant but totally worth it.
Speaking of dr appts, yesterday I went and did my routine blood work that keeps my doctor happy. This is no big deal, my biggest gripe is that I have to drive twenty or thirty minutes or each way which is annoying when I’m in the process of a deadline whizzing by me. But I went, got it done with minimal fuss, and decided to reward myself with a non-fat latte. So I drive to Starbucks, tear off the stupid bright purple tape wrapped around my arm and toss it in the trash can on my way in the door. I get in line and then look down.
I have blood running down my freaking arm.
Yeah, I’m all kinds of classy.
So there I am in Starbucks, trying to staunch this bleeding, juggling my walling and ordering
And this is exactly why I just try to stay home. I can’t even get a coffee without humiliating myself. As it turned out I still had the wad of gauze in my hand-no idea why I didn’t throw it in the trash like with the tape. So I slapped that one the stupid bleeder, bent my arm and tried to look like I was normal and my arm wasn’t smeared with blood.
Once I left the coffee shop the bleeding magically stopped.
On another note, if you’re looking for writing inspiration, consider watching and listening to this keynote speech from Kristen Higgens http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xxZBvtw28Xw&feature=youtu.be If you have the time, it’s fun, inspirational and so true about how writing is hard because it’s supposed to be hard.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
