I woke to the phone ringing and it was Robin. Apparently, she was the person who called 2 times earlier only I didn't hear the phone. She wanted to know if I wanted to go to lunch with her and her son. Of course I did, so I was to meet them at Olga's, one of my favorite restaurants. Unfortunately, I was at the wrong Olga's meeting them. I called Zach because I couldn't imagine why I beat them there. That is when I found out the were going to one near my doctor's office (blood test day) and I didn't know it was there. Well, I flew back into my little car and raced over to the proper Olga's for lunch. It was wonderful. Zach is a sophomore at Central Michigan University and he heads back to school next week. Wow, quick summer for him. He is a theatre and broadcast arts major. He was my student while in high school and has a very good voice. He is really good and I can only imagine that with college training under his belt, he will be even better.
After lunch I went to the blood test. Only one try again and she did it! Of course, this was Julia and she is one of the few who can get me in 1 try. I can clear out a room of nurses and technicians by just signing my name on the patient list. There are only 3 nurses at the doctor's office that can find my veins and get them to give them blood. At least it didn't hurt this time super bad, just a medium bad. It was quick this time too. She found the proper vein (there are only 2 that work, 1 on each arm) and boom, she was done! thank goodness!
I am very tired right now and could go for a nap. Why can't I be this tired when I go to bed, or when I am, why can't I sleep right away??? I am tired of taking hours to get to sleep. It is very upsetting to me. I think I feel asleep for a few hours at about 5 am. Before that, I was awake every hour to turn over from pain. Nothing seems to help the nighttime pain right now. It takes a few hours just to relax and try to get to sleep. I don't even plan on sleeping anytime before 4 am anymore because no matter how exhausted I am when I go to bed, I don't sleep until after then. A couple nights ago, I went to bed at 10 because I was just so tired and couldn't stay awake. I had forced myself to stay awake all day without a nap, and then I woke up at 1 am and couldn't sleep until 6 because I actually slept for 3 hours between 10 and 1. I was rather annoyed so now when I need a nap, I take it no matter the time because obviously, forcing myself to stay awake and go to bed earlier doesn't help any.
Project Runway is on tonight. I actually was surprised to realize I liked the show. i watched 2 episodes and it is very interesting. I am looking forward to that tonight. Other than that, I have no plans for the evening.
I do hope you are having a good day. It is simply beautiful out right now, just simply beautiful!
