A Day is What You Make ItWoman in the Middle | February 6, 2018
Yesterday I had the opportunity to help a friend. A minor procedure was scheduled and a ride was needed because a little anesthesia was involved. It required me to get up at 5:30 am which, other than the IDEA of getting up that early, was no big deal. One of my super powers is the ability to wake up fast and get on with my day. I might crash and burn later, but I can go go go for several hours on less than an ideal amount of sleep.
We got to the medical center in a neighboring city with a minimum of fuss. A parking space was waiting for us right by the door. At that point, the day was a good one, no matter what else happened. Things went smoothly from there as my friend was taken in quickly, then the procedure was done in a quick and efficient manner. She came out of anesthesia quickly as well. Yay!
Meanwhile, I was able to procure a delightful yogurt parfait with fresh strawberries and blueberries from a near by carfeteria, which I ate while I waited. I had nothing better to do than to play my favorite game on my phone and do a little reading. That, right there, is a joy. Afterwards, my friend wanted an In and Out burger, and she treated me to one as well. We sat in the car and ate our lunch, enjoying our ridiculously warm but beautiful weather. I got her home and got to see and speak to her son, who I have known since he was in kindergarten with Youngest Daughter. My, he is a good looking, strapping young man now!
Then I went home and took a nice long nap, ran some errands, and finished off my day in the normal way with Hubby and a little TV. Oh, and some cat petting.
You know, a day is what you make of it. Sitting around in a medical center may not sound like a great day, but in this case it was. I can officially mark February 5, 2018 as a good day. Hope yours was good as well!
