    Had a kind of weird experience at work, not sure I should put it down here.
    Happy, happy dance for your weight and labs! Way to go, Siobhan - you inspire me.

    If its troubling you share, if not let it go.

    Okay, what's the weird experience? Well, I mean, only if you want to tell us, but we are curious. Love your thin report. 10 pounds IS doable!

    When sharing things on here, I always keep in mind that the people involved could very well turn up and read it some day. Which keeps my journal pretty discreet.

    Congrats on all the good numbers! And good luck with the scrubs. They are probably the kind of thing that would be easy to order in though, from Sears or wherever.

    Actually, they're not easy to order at all - they vary tremendously from brand to brand, and a size and brand that fits you one month will turn out to be totally different when you order another two weeks later. They are even more variable than regular clothing, which seem to at least be consistent within brands. One problem is that most scrubs are unisex. The ones made specially for women tend to fit even more idiosyncratically and are often expensive. I just need to make the 45-minute drive to the nearest store that sells scrubs, albeit expensive ones. Hopefully they will have a sale going on!

    Or I just need to keep wearing the ultra-baggy ones.

    Who woulda thunk it? You'd think something so simple would be simple.

    Okay, here is the story.

    Yesterday I had to get an x-ray of my neck. At my physical yesterday I showed the doc a painful bump at the bottom on my neck (C7 for those of you in the know) and he wanted to check it out. So I came into work with the order in my hand hoping the only female x-ray tech we have at night would be on duty. Now that I have to get my work done at the same hospital where I work, a reality in rural areas, I like to stick to female clinicians. But when I went to the x-ray department, there was only a guy I don't know well - I'll call him Tom. He said he is the only one on duty all week, the other two are on vacation! I could hardly walk away, there was no graceful way to do that, and anyway I obviously want to get the x-ray and get this cleared up. It's just my neck, after all. No disrobing involved. I don't know this guy at all - he is very quiet and very young. He was really nice and really professional through the whole thing, actually made it kind of fun and he showed me the x-rays and explained stuff (I don't know anything about reading x-rays.) The thing is, it really affected me a lot having him near me, gently moving my hair out of the way, carefully positioning my shoulders - it's like a photograph after all. He smelled really nice and I never noticed that he is quite nice looking although very, very young. Young enough to be my offspring for sure! And I am a person who does not like to be touched by strangers, normally this stuff is hard for me anyway. But I couldn't stop thinking about him! It was really unsettling. There's no fool like an old fool...

    Just found out my thyroid lab came back totally normal, as did my CBC. Rock solid normal. Nothing even low or high. Woot!

    When I was taking my children for swim lessons I had a 'crush' on one of the lifeguards. Ridiculously young, but just so good looking and physically magnetic, I couldn't help but notice him. Thank goodness he never had to brush the hair from my shoulders, or I might have had serious difficulties!

    Nothing wrong with enjoying the view.
