My how time flies when you don't want to go to the doctor

  I used to be so good about my doctors visits. Every year, like clockwork, when my birthday rolled around, I scheduled a visit with my doctor. I was always super vigilant about getting "the tires rotated and the oil changed." Somehow I fell off that bandwagon.

  I'm not sure how it happened but when Hailey went to see her OB, who is also my gyno, I said to the nurse, "When did you guys move here?" She looked at me like I was from another planet and said, "Several years ago."

  Has it really been several years since I've had my tires rotated?  I went home and looked on the paper with the results of my last blood work and the date on it was 3/17/2009. Holy crap!!

  In my defense ( cause it can't possibly be my fault) I was trying to find a new family doctor and the woman I went to made a rude remark that offended me and she appeared to be trying not to laugh through my whole visit. There's more to the story, but I'll leave it there.

  Anyway, I got a little pissy about it and just never went back. So now, five years later, not only do I need to go to the doctor, but I'll be 50 this year. I think you know where this is going.

  So today I'm going to a new family doctor to get a physical and all my blood work done and also a referral so I can get my boobs smushed and my bottom violated.

   Doesn't 50 sound like it's gonna be fun?


  1. I've heard that lying naked in the driveway in the middle of winter while having someone slowly roll over your boobs is a great way to prepare for the ol' mammogram. I've never tried it. I just take lots of dark chocolate with me for after therapy ;). Good for you for making your appointments!

    1. I think I'll pass on that preparation and just go for the dark chocolate!

  2. Hi Carol! Wow! It's time to party like a Rockstar! Fun times at 50, keep us posted on all of the festivities. I'm afraid, I'm very afraid! lol Sending a warm welcome to our SITS Tribe! BTW It's only been two years since my appointment, I'm calling the office tomorrow- wherever they may be. : )

    1. I'm walking around trying to hide my backside because I know whats coming! They are going to call me to schedule the appt, I wonder how long we can play phone tag?


Say it, you know you wanna!
