and it's heigh ho off to the fair

the health fair, that is

I went this morning

driving through the fog at 7:15 on a Sunday morning

at least I had a pretty good idea where I was going!

by 8:45 I was all done

blood work done -- the gal doing this job was GREAT -- kudos to her, since I'm a hard one to get blood from (haven't I said you can't get blood from a turnip!?) results will take about 4 weeks

bone density scan done -- a new experience for me -- in this case we get instant results, and this could have been better -- I'm on the low side of normal for my age -- guess I have to try to remember to take more calcium supplements since drinking more milk is definitely NOT going to happen -- can't stand the bloat

stop off at the Susan G Komen booth -- and get totally angry that I'm still making payments on the bill for having my mammogram done since it turns out I would have qualified to have it done for free -- have I mentioned lately that I think the health care system in this country is seriously screwed up

truth is I'm not looking forward to getting the results on this year's blood work -- after last year's tests my doctor told me I should occasionally test my blood sugar since those levels were a little high last year

confession time: I haven't done that -- it's just a pain to have to share equipment with someone else, and I don't think of it first thing when it should be done

add to that having not done much of anything in the form of exercise since about this time last year when I started having the problems that ended in my surgery and now having issues doing much walking because it bothers my knee

well, I'm just not looking forward to being told AGAIN that the magic elixir is exercise -- yeah, right, how would you suggest I do that

I know -- it's the same story and the definition of insanity -- doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results -- but I just haven't ever been good at exercising, and there's really nothing of that stuff that I enjoy, so it really is like drudgery

so add in the guilt factor too

ok, I'm done whining for today

I think
