Not the Sunday post I had planned...

but yesterday was spent yet again shoveling snow, then shopping and fixing dinner while Dottie was at work. Caught up with some TV, then after she went to bed I worked on that video game some more, lol!

Today started later than I planned, shopping for some things I couldn't find yesterday, then I came home and downloaded the medical forms I have to fill out for the colonoscopy I've been supposed to have since I turned 50. I'm only a year behind...

Normally I have my physicals in July during my downtime, but last year we were in Vermont. When we came back I put mine off to make Dottie go do hers (she has to have annual exams on her replacement joints as well). By the time we got through those, I had figured out how bad my Chrysler really was; then we bought the truck and since then things have been a bit tight, between paying off the things that weren't covered on hers, paying the regular bills and then throwing in the holidays on top!

I called this last week trying to schedule this for next week when I am laid off, thinking I might want a day or two to recover, but of course the soonest they can get me in is late March or April! I'm betting this won't be the last of my downtime, so hoping if I go for the last week of March I won't have to give up any vacation days!

Daytona is on in the background at this point...scary how few names I recognize in the field anymore!

Somewhere back East I know Tony Stewart's number one fan is having a party!

Off to sort out the 1600 things in my inbox and fill out these (endless) forms!

A great week to you all...

While a colonoscopy is not really what I'd consider fun getting all that stuff done during a lay-off is a perfect idea. Personal housekeeping, sorta.

Since my Mom's Mom died of colon cancer I've actually been looking forward to a clean bill of health in that area...

Personal housekeeping indeed! :o)

I hate going to the doctor. Ric always suggest I go and I put it off but if he has a slight headache I am immediately on the phone trying to get him an appointment. It's stupid but I want him to be healthy and could care less about me.

You are so brilliant at scheduling, but I guess you have to be. I totally admire your ability to get things taken care of and organized on a schedule that many people would consider impossible.

Best of luck at the doctor's!

And "Tony Stewart's number one fan"? I wonder who you're talking about...? ;-)

I know one day Tony and Jimmie Johnson and Kevin Harvick will be the old veterans, and I'll think the hot young stars look like they were recruited fresh from drivers' ed!
