countdown pt. II
Just over a month ago I was in love with my countdown clock - I spent a good minute watching the seconds tick by towards my paid-for-mostly-in-full surgery.
But now? It kind of seems like that clock is laughing at me, reminding me of all of the million things I have to do before I'll be ready. (As if I could be actually ready for this). But the migraines aren't stopping - though the new anti-nausea medication actually stops them in their tracks - so there's no way I'm stopping now.
This week is a busy one - today is shopping and brainstorming soups with my amazing mother-in-law, tomorrow is helping my friend in her classroom and getting hooks on at Dr. Molen's office, Wednesday is the husband's birthday and I work at Starbucks, Thursday pre-op appointment with Dr. Lee and I'm picking up my marathon packet in Seattle, and Saturday is the half-marathon. So pretty much between now and my "last meal" event at my favorite brew pub, I've got 3 days to myself.
It's all coming so quickly.
