OK, second attempt at making Tuesday’s blog post on Tuesday (whatever my WordPress timestamp may say). I logged on earlier but felt overwhelmingly sad. The moment seems to have passed.
As you may have guessed, I did not follow yesterday’s note to self and write my blog post while on breaks at work. I had the notebook out (the spiral bound paper kind by the way), but nothing doing. I did some writing eventually, but nothing to share yet. Never mind, I will make a Tired Tuesday post.
At the risk of upsetting the HIPAA police, I mention that I went to the cardiologist this morning for a stress test. I was quite stressed by the time I arrived. Driving in Utica, NY can do that to anyone, but I get especially uptight when I am worried about getting somewhere on time. And it is stressful leaving from and returning to work, for reasons too tiresome to relate.
Anyways, the test itself went fine, although I felt quite self-conscious being naked from the waist up, not to mention the discomfort of walking and jogging without a bra (do NOT tell me TMI!). I had to laugh when I was lying on my side while a technician took “pictures” of my heart.
“I feel like I’m getting a boudoir photo taken,” I said.
It took me a while on the treadmill to get out of breath. Let’s hear it for running! The technicians were also impressed by how quickly I got back into heart-picture-taking position when I got off the treadmill.
The really bad part came next, when they hooked me up to a heart monitor that I have to wear for 30 days. That may be worth a blog post all its own!
In the meantime, I am closing in on 300 words. Not bad for thinking I wasn’t even going to post till tomorrow morning.
