I vant to suck your blood …

Okay, I don’t, but the lab does, every week. That’s what happens when you’re on blood thinners (aka rat poison!). I seem to be a hard to regulate person so off I clip clop to the lab nearly every week. Considering how little I used to go to doctors, etc, it still wigs me out having my blood taken. I can’t watch and look around elsewhere. That also seems to freak out the nurses, they’re like, are you ok?? Yup, I just don’t like this.

Unfortunately, parking also sucks at the hospital (big surprise), although they are building a new parkade. Why they didn’t do that when they renovated years ago? Who knows. I couldn’t find parking up top so went into the underground today. All went well till I tried to exit the building. I paid, the gate went up, I drove to the door and the door wouldn’t go up. Oh good grief! So I clip clopped back to the pay station and hit the help button to get someone. They said they would send someone to come help. Ten minutes later and I’m still waiting and now about 6 cars are lined up wanting to get out as well and everyone is freaking out. Finally the lady came and got the door to go up.

The problem is nearly every time I park underground, something goes wonky. The pay station’s don’t work, the gate doesn’t work or the old people that park under there can’t figure out how to pay, where to pay. Oy!! They used to have a real live person man the pay station. They really need to go back to those days since there are always problems down there. The hospital is not somewhere I want to spend extra time :-).

Smile!

What makes me smile? The last year has been really hard to find things that make me smile. We suffered two devastating losses of loved ones. I’ve never felt grief like that before. It’s gut-wrenching and heart breaking and threatens to destroy all that’s inside you, it truly does. But the human spirit somehow gets through these horrors. I’m not sure how but I know the love of good friends and a special sister are what got me through the nightmare times. Some days you wonder how it is you are able to get up and still function. It’s really quite amazing.

So what makes me smile these days? Well, the two little monkey’s we got last August from my sister. They are two Siamese kittens (brothers) and man, are they trouble-makers! Your emotion goes from frustrated crazy to big smiles when you see them do something adorable (which, lucky for them, is more often than their naughtiness!). So all you can do is SMILE!!
