FunDay Friday

This morning I had my glucose screening, which meant I couldn't eat breakfast before my 9 am appointment; then, I got there and bravely chugged my orange flavored drink. It didn't taste too bad, and it was cold, so that was a benefit. And then I just had to sit around and wait an hour before they drew my blood. I was pretty hungry after I got out of there (I'm the sort of person who wakes up every morning hungry and eating breakfast is always the first thing I do), but other than that, I thought the whole thing was pretty simple, and they'll have the results when I got to my next dr. visit in a week and a half.

After my lab appointment, I drove to Boca to have lunch with Mrs. K. We met at Mizner Park and had lunch at a really great Mexican restaurant. It was great to meet her and spend some time sitting around and chatting, so that was a good reward for getting stuck with a needle this morning.

And considering that those two activities were the only things on my schedule today, you may not think I'd still need my afternoon nap, but sure enough, I got home around 2:15 and fell asleep while I was reading. I got up just before Jerry got home, and now we're getting ready to go out for the evening: A work friend of Jerry's is hosting a happy hour and then we're going bowling afterward. Should be a good evening.

Happy Friday, everyone!

I've had that orange drink before too and it was awful after fasting...I havent had orange pop since then ;) Ooh Boca, Boca Raton? Thats where my US relatives live. I get excited when I hear about it because there are only certain (mostly the major) US cities that I know anything about.

The orange drink is so flat. It's the worst part of the test.

Hope you had fun tonight!

I remember the glucose screening. We also went for Mexican Afterwards (it was the same day I found out I was having a boy). Happy Weekend!

The glucose stuff wasn't as bad as I thought it would be! It tasted like a melted orange popsicle. I think that if you fail the test, they call you almost immediately (I had to call for my results just to make sure, and they said I passed with flying colors so they weren't planning to call me).

That sounds like a great day. I think the worst part about the glucose test is anticipation of that awful drink. Then once you do it, it's not so bad. I too liked to reward myself with a little mexican food after my visits. I swear that's why they put the office next to a Chipotle.
