a wan-derful weekend

okay, it was actually pretty uneventful, but i think my last post explains today's subject line. [cheesy grin]

although in reality, it started off with most of my saturday morning spent sitting around kaiser's lab. and when i say "most", i really mean it - the hub and i got there right around 8:45 and i didn't get to leave till around 12:30. i must've been really distracted by the impending test(s), because i didn't even feel hungry even though i'd had to fast, and i usually wake up ready to get my grub on.

anyway, i arrived armed with a stack of magazines and a book i was 3/4 of the way through. once i'd gotten through the first needle, i let the hub off the hook and sent him on his merry way. after a 3-week absence from work, he was hoping to get a head start on mail and stuff and so it was off to the office for him. i chugged the oh-so-yummy orange glucola and dove into my book.

i was more than ready for lunch by the time the last blood draw was done, so we headed off to danny's kosher pickle for sandwiches and soup. mmmmmmmm, reuben sandwich. mmmmmmmmm.

by the time we got home - a mere hour after i'd left kaiser - i already had an email that said my lab results were ready. i took a deep breath, sent up a quick prayer, and opened the email.

I PASSED!! no diabetes for this girl. oh, happy day! thanks for everyone's well wishes and healthy vibes. they worked!

sunday was church and then a drive down to my parents' house in manhattan beach. we had every intention of actually going to the beach, but got caught up in socializing with my sibs and their mates. plus, a childhood friend of mine was coming for a visit and i didn't want to miss him. i hadn't seen the guy since i was all of seventeen years old!

anyway, life is back to normal. the hub's at work, the kid's hanging out with her BFF, the dog is sleeping under my bookshelf, and i'm working on an invitation order.

and i'm ready to throw my printer out the window. it keeps effing up on these postcards, and i want to scream. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
