Today was a busy day!!!! I had my doctor’s appointment, all’s well. So far, of course. I just have to return to get my TB test results, and yes…there was a needle involved. The drug test was just the cup one, it was kind of cool to watch them actually do the test. But I passed that one (dur), passed my physical (yay), and then it was time for the TB test. They ended up taking a syringe with a itty bitty needle and injecting the skin in my arm with a little bit. There was actually a little bubble under my skin…ew.
Yeah… I cried. Like a little girl. The lady who did it was incredibly nice about it, she actually let me hold her hand. Haha. Yeah, I’m a baby about needles.
Then Brittany (my little sis) went and took her drivers test… she is now a licensed driver!!!!! Yay! Congrats to her!!!!
It was a pretty good day!!!! Also, I got weighed at the doctor’s office…. take a while guess….
YAY!!!!! That is what the scale at the doctor’s office read…my scale reads 187.2. So my scale is about .6 pounds off, since their is perfectly calibrated, and my scale cost me about 12.00. Haha.
In fact, I’m only .2 pounds away from where I left off, when I deserted my site. Ha.
I’m a happy camper. I did find a web site that tells me how to calibrate my scale. I’m going to do that tonight, should be interesting…it’s one of those digital scales…lucky me.
But I’m happy. Actually…very happy. It’s been a really really good day (aside from the needle 🙁 ).
On other news, I have been going a tad crazy with the arts and crafts. I’ve been making necklaces like nobody’s business. I’m planning on selling them on an Etsy shop, whooo hooo. I’m not that big on wearing necklaces…so I made all these and decided “Hey, I’m never gonna wear them…might as well sell them. I highly doubt that I’m going to make a huge profit from them… but who cares? I’ll end up putting whatever money I make back, that way I can save up to go to Fitbloggin this year… I can’t go this time around…poop.
Though, yesterday I mentioned a colorful and sweat inducing thing I want to do…
The Color Run!!!!!
I had never heard about it until I saw it posted on a fellow weight loss blogger’s page. It looked like so much fun… so I looked it up.
It’s seems pretty much awesome! You basically wear as much white as possible to this race and throughout the race everyone gets doused in colored cornstarch at pre-determined places at the race. Off the top of my head I believe it’s at the beginning of the race and each km afterwards. And each racer is given a pouch of color.
It sounds like so much fun!!!!! Not only that, but it’s a non-timed race. Which I love the idea of a no pressure race. It’s one of the reason’s why I opted out of the Cherry Festival race. Definitely no pressure. I love that!
The one that is coming up is the day of my birthday! It’ll be a pretty awesome “Happy Birthday Nicole” kind of thing! It’s in Cincinnati…only about an 8 hour drive from me.
It’s something that I really really really want to do…so we’ll see. I’m not making any promises, but I’m hoping I’ll be able to make it.
So yes…that’s my day/news in a nutshell. I know I’ve been seriously lacking in the picture department of things, and I promise I’ll get back on track with that.
Anyone out there planning on going to that particular Color 5k???
