Hump Day

What person in their right mind would get up at 4:30 in the morning?! A dutiful daughter who (not so graciously) had to get up to take her mother for a colonoscopy this morning. I know some of you get up that early (and earlier) each day and I do NOT know how you do it. Yuck. I feel like I've had a whole day and am ready for bed and it's only 2 o'clock so I've got 4 more hours of work, then evening activities. Sigh...

My mom's doc told me that because my dad had colitis and my mom has now had her second colonoscopy that showed a lot of polyps that I should start getting colonoscopies at 45. "FORTY-FIVE?!", I said not TOO dramatically, "I'm 45 NOW". Double yikes. Another fun thing to look forward to...maybe next year. ;-)

Other than waking up before the crack of dawn, I'm feeling pretty good. Did the Pilates DVD that Vickie recommended on Monday night (now I need a good yoga one), went to the gym last night, my knee is better (from Disneyland mystery injury), I've been good (not perfect) with WOW this week and good (not perfect) with food so far this week. Tonight I'm getting together with Old Friend and his travelling companion and another friend of mine for dinner...all have been warned that I will be uncharacteristically tired tonight after my pre-dawn adventure this morning. :-)

I like mornings but no earlier than 7:30 or 8:00!! Thanks for you comment to me about the job. I can so relate. I have calmed down today, though. My boss is great about things. But she likes me so much she keeps dumping new responsibilities on me. No good deed goes unpunished, right?
Hope things are going well for you today. I need to break out my yoga videos.

You're a very good daughter. I get to look forward to one of those in a few years. From what I've heard, it's not the actual procedure that's annoying, etc. it's the prep work.

I'm glad your knee is better and I hope you had fun with your friend!
