Best Day Ever

Finally!!! Yesterday was the best day. It didn't start out that way, though. My vague message yesterday was because I had to go for a second mammogram and ultrasound. I know this is common but it still scared me enough to not leave my house for more than one basketball game and dinner at my mom's. It completely stressed me out for six days. Everything is fine! Thank, God! I have to go back in six months. Considering the alternative, I was thrilled. I mean, given my dislike of medical tests, I'd rather do anything else but what a relief. What bothers me about this is that if it is so common for women to get called in for ultrasounds, why don't we just do the ultrasounds? Mammograms are not fun and if because of the way I am built, they aren't going to get good pictures, why do I have to do them only to get called back? When I go back in six months, it is only for an ultrasound which makes sense to me but after that it is back to mammograms which doesn't. I heard that it was common "as we get older." Ugghhh...I am not going to get old gracefully. I can feel it. My driver's license is expiring this year and I need to take the eye exam. If I took it right now, I'd fail. I haven't been to the eye doctor since after Nico was born (I know...not good) and since I have gotten older (ugh), I know my eyes have gotten worse. So off to the eye doctor I go next week. I argue with my friends a lot about this issue because most are smart and feel like if you catch anything early, you can fix it. I get that but I don't like going digging for things and I don't like going to the doctor feeling fine and then having them tell me I'm sick. Thanks so much, Gina and Chrissy for babysitting for the longest appointment ever. Anyway, getting good news was the beginning of the best day ever.

The second reason it was a good day was I cleared up a misunderstanding that was bugging me for awhile now. It isn't every day that you get to have your say and have things go back to normal so I am glad I got to do that. It did lead me to think that some people really are crazy and have nothing better to do than stir an imaginary pot.

The third reason is I finally got a night out. A real night out (longer than an hour). I dropped Nico off at practice, waited until Leo relieved me and went to Barnes and Noble. I did some writing. I love when I can't put down my journal. John Carter is coming out on Friday so I knew that the reviews and magazines would have stuff in them about it so I sat and read a bunch. It has been forever since Taylor Kitsch has been in any magazine and what do you know? People Magazine said that while the movie might be confusing, the "young, rising star" that is the lead and the special effects make it a "fun ticket." Like I said before, I don't care if it is good or not, I am going to be there with my big bucket of Kettle Corn and giant Coke and for 2 hours, I will be very happy. It's also the reason I am going to see it with the twins. I don't want to hear how bad it was. Just when I thought that was good enough, I turned the page and there it was...a big old article about him and how he could be this generation's "it" guy (they said Brad Pitt but since he has gotten weird, I ignored that part). There were pictures and everything. Even if his next movie is bad (and it doesn't look great), he's in an Oliver Stone movie with a few big names so there is still something to look forward to. Ahhh...fourth reason why it was the best day ever.

Then I met my best friend for a very last minute, belated birthday dinner (aren't those always the best kind). We had sushi at one of my favorite places and then went to Target. We are really wild in our old age! It was nice getting to catch up. When we don't do that as often as we used to, we start to feel connected but with a little bit of disconnect. I don't know if that makes sense but you get busy with your own lives that you forget to make time for each other and even the best friendships need to be nurtured. It was great getting to laugh until my stomach hurt and catch up.

A few other things that added to why I loved yesterday was Gia yelling, "Mommy! I miss you so much, Mommy" after I got home from the doctor. Nico came home right after school so I didn't have to go pick him up anywhere. The twins didn't have homework and I didn't have to make dinner. Leo bought a new television so my days of watching a half screen TV are almost over!

I was home, in bed by 10:00 watching America's Next Top Model which is not very good this season but I knew when my head hit the pillow, I was going to sleep really well for the first time in two weeks.

Thanks, Kendra! It was a pain in the neck...well actually a pain somewhere else but you know what I mean. ;)
