Just a few
I went for my yearly exam with my OB/GYN yesterday.
First, I didnt realize, I have been with this lady since I was 21 years old.
That's amazing to me.
& for the first time yesterday, I realized how short she was.
I guess I never stand that close to her, but she was showing me something to read on a chart & I was shoulder to shoulder with her... or more like shoulder to head with her. I felt like a giant.
I guess when you're on your back with your legs in the air, you dont really notice someone's height.
I know - I've had past tales of going to the OB/GYN & teaching knitting while naked...
no such fun happened this time
I blame my Bicep Tendonitis for sucking all the fun out of my life
Instead of knitting, this is what I did for fun while waiting... take pictures
If you look closely, you'll see fun literature on the wall about Menopause...
& this is a good picture...
I wanted to take one in the mirror of me in this hot robe.
Afterall, I was having a good hair day
(you'd know that if you saw my Instagram pictures... my hair was TOTALLY AWESOMELY RAD throw back to the 80's)
When the assistant brought me back & went over the 'pre-prep' stuff, she said, "Are you still having your periods?"
(I guess I should have warned any guys that are reading... period talk... fun)
Then, when the doc came in, she asked me the same thing.
I told her, "I cant believe I'm at the age where you're asking me if I'm still having my period... I officially feel old"
She made me feel better when she said, "you've been with me almost 20 years & every time you see me, I always have been & always will be older then you"
I wanted to laugh & point & say, "HA - you're older then me!... you still having your periods?"
...I didnt though...
But then the moment of truth...
she sent me away with order for my first mammogram
Its time... 40 years old
I've got to make my appointment...
Time for my first SMOOSH...
I'm a tad nervous.
I guess because I always hear the horror stories of flat boobs
& I know, I know - its important to do & I'm going to do it
But seriously... please tell me my boobs go back to normal shape as soon as its over.
