I swear I felt completely lucid after my scope procedure today. I came home, made myself an omelet, sat out on the deck enjoying the glorious weather and listened to a few chapters of New Moon on my mp3 player. Emailed friends while hubby took a nap—all that waiting around for me must have been exhausting—informing them that everything had come out okay.
In short, WA-HOO!
They tell you not to drive or operate hazardous machinery for 24 hours. I didn't figure that included a sewing machine. Although I have been known to run over a finger or two on occasion.
As for the driving, I just ran a few ditches. I don't think I did too bad. Mostly where I went off the rails was because I had sewn the squares together weird before I left for the hospital.
I was inspired by this tutorial at Don't Call Me Betsy, but I used solids,left some blank space, and arranged the pieces to be more reflective of my personal skill level.
I was never that great at Tetris but I liked the game a lot. You never forget your first computer game. Or your second...Minesweeper (or was it Pinball? Never mind, you do forget your second. Hey, I make it up as I go along sometimes).
You know what I didn't like? Drinking 4 liters of this craptastic prep solution.
See those red lines? I had to drink half last night and half this morning. I didn't want to take one sip more than I absolutely had to, so I got out the old ruler and marked the halfway mark between the fill line and the bottom (3-1/2 inches down/up, as it turns out).
That stuff is called "GoLYTELY." Because "Sh*tstorm in a Jug" didn't quite have the same marketing appeal, I'm guessing. I was never so happy to kick the empty into the recycling bin this morning.
But all's well that ends well, as they say.
We ignored the phone when it rang during a movie tonight. When I checked the caller ID later, this came up.
At least they're being honest?
