laughing at myself

Today was a great day! For those of you praying for me, thank you. I feel it for sure. It's 10 p.m. and I feel like I could go all night. Lots of joy, too!

I think it may have been the humor I've had towards myself today. It's the only thing keeping me from crawling out of my skin that hasn't been showered.

Yep, can't take a shower for 2 days. Two days, people!!!

I went for my biopsy yesterday morning and just after they were finished the nurse says, "So, you can't get your hair wet for 2 days". What??? My heart begins to race. Two days? I don't even wake up until I get a shower. Let alone 2 days worth.

Then I ask, "Can I wash it after the 48 hours?"

"Nope. Can't use shampoo or styling stuff for 72 hours". Saturday? Really?

For a girl with curly hair, this just isn't going to cut it. I have one hat and it makes my head itch. not a good combo with 3 stitches in your head.

I'm left with the aunt Jemima bandanna. Super cute! And I have to go see our pediatrician tomorrow. He's not old and he's slightly attractive.

Here's a visual: Aunt Jemima and her three squirmy kids at the cute pediatrician's office in the trendy part of town. Lovely. Time to swallow that pride.

LOL Kate. You are too funny! You better plan to have Dave with the kids for that shower! I bet you'll want to relish it, uninterrupted, for a good 30 min! (;

I totally understand the pediatrician thing. Ours is not really attractive, but I figure I will be seeing him pretty regularly for the next 18 years so I try to at least be clean. My middle child injured his ear one morning and we had to rush to the office pretty much in our pjs (I did pause for a bra). I couldn't tell if they were shocked from the injury or the way we (me included) appeared. Oh well, motherhood gives u slots of opportunities to swallow our pride.
