I feel GOOD. I really, really do! I am really back to normal. It started Sunday afternoon after I got home from swimming. I showered and dressed and everything and just felt energized. Every time I got up from a chair or something I’d look back at the chair and go “hmmm… that was easier!” (’Cause I talk to furniture). I woke up yesterday morning and getting out of bed was easier, walking was better, everything was better, including my mood. The swimming is paying off ten fold!
So I was feeling really good and “bouncy” when my buzzer rang just after 10:00 yesterday morning. Access was taking me to my doctor appointment. I answered and said “I’ll be right out” and I heard an “oooookay” on the other end. As I was putting my coat on I thought, dear God, that sounded like AH. I walked out the door and there he was. My first reaction was “oh, NO WAY!” and then I laughed. Okay I know I said a couple months ago that I’d never mention him in here again, but come on… we haven’t spoken in almost two months and it was his FIRST DAY BACK working with Access. First day since quitting to do other stuff for the summer, and he gets me. For two trips, because he also brought me home. I have never been assigned the same driver to take me both ways before. So, excuse me if I’m a little freaked out by the whole thing.
There’s not much to really say about it though, I’m just happy to see him back with Access because he is their best driver and so good at that job. We didn’t talk about anything personal to do with us, we just laughed about how funny it was that he would get me on his first day back and stuff. (Damn you Universe, you keep doing this with us and you know I don’t believe in coincidence… am I being tested, or do we still have something to learn from each other, or are we supposed to hook up again, or, maybe, do I THINK TOO MUCH?!?!) He dropped me off at home and I thanked him and said “see ya” and that was about it. I’m glad we got the seeing-each-other-for-the-first-time-since thing out of the way. I saw the old AH yesterday and realized why I liked him in the first place, and now hope that we really can be friends one day. Some day. Maybe. Stop thinking Donna.
And my doctor’s appointment? I am doing the deed… surgery is scheduled for November 30 for my tubal ligation. That’s a LOT faster than I expected, I thought it would take months to get in. Months for me to stress and possibly mourn the fact that I’ll never have a baby, something that years ago I just assumed I would do at some point. I know I’m making the right decision for a lot of reasons, but it’s still weird to think of going through life without having that experience. So I’m glad that the surgery is happening soon and I can get it over with and just be at peace with it. (Believe me, this was well thought out, I’m not jumping into this lightly!)
And then I can get my life sexed up again and not have to worry about birth control. HA!
Ohhh I should mention that I went to a fabulous show on Friday night with Michelle. Jason, Sheldon and Rob from the Polyjesters along with the amazing guitarist Aaron Young (from Sillan & Young and often joins the PJ’s at their gigs) and Rob Young (singer and owner of the Beat Niq, where the show was) performed a tribute to the Beatles. It was a great show… they did some Beatles classics we all know as well as some more obscure stuff. The PolyParents (Barry and Carol) were there too (love love love them). Tickets were FIFTY bucks a pop, but Jason put me plus one on the guest list because he ROCKS. I think they forfeited being paid in exchange for some comps so they could get a few friends in. I am so blessed to be in that category, they are the bestest! Jay and Shell have started a new side project called “Value Village People”, which will include Rob on drums and Aaron on guitar and bass. Jason will play keyboards as well as bass. I don’t think Sheldon will be on ukulele for this (but he can play anything, so no matter), and no Matt on fiddle… it’s going to be very different than the Polyjesters, but still a ton-o-fun. Value Village People?? Jason and Sheldon’s minds?? How can it not be fun??
Wha? What’s that uke doing here? We’re the BEATLES!
