Triple T

Thanks to the gorgeous (and preggo) Laura Belle we have Ten Things Thursday!!

1. 15 total days until summer break, 9 more days to wake up to an alarm clock...but who's counting??


2. On the last day of school I have a ritual. As soon as I leave the building I call The Rockstar and sing School's Out (Alice Cooper). Then, as soon as I get home I unplug my alarm clock and hide it way back in the back of the closet...where it stays until I have to go back to work in August. I try my best not to set any doctors appointments or anything during the summer that would require me setting an alarm. I very rarely even look at the clock in the summer :)


3. I have to find a new doctor. My doctor affiliated himself with a program and if I wanted to stay his patient I would have had to pay the annual fee of over $1700 a year...plus still pay my copay every time I go in. It didn't make sense to me to do that since I only go to the doctor a few times a year. I have been with my doctor for 14 years and hate to get a new one, but that's what I gotta do.


4. My doctor will only see nonmembers up until May 22, so I went in today to get new prescriptions, get my vitamin B 12 shot, yearly girl stuff, and ask who he personally recommended for me as a new doctor. So the good news is he recommended a doctor he felt would match well with me. The bad news is, I have a lump in right breast and have to go in for a diagnostic mammogram next week. Normally I wouldn't even be concerned, but since my mother battled breast cancer 4 years ago I am slightly concerned.


5. My bff is coming into town next week for her nephew's graduation and I am sooooo way excited to see her. It sucks that I will still be working, but at least I will get to spend some time with her over the weekend.


6. Did you know that I have not had any Mt Dew in 3 days??? Not a drop. Yeah, I know, it's a miracle. Don't get too excited. I have been drinking sweet tea and lemonade like nobody's business. Probably just as much sugar, but lemons are a fruit so it's gotta be a little bit better for me...right??


7. Three weeks from this very moment my ass will be in the sun and toes in the sand. I look forward to beach trip all year long. The beach is my absolute favorite place to be. In the past we only stay 3 or 4 days because every year one of us had to be back for some other obligation. This year we made sure that we had no other obligations that week and we are staying the entire week.


8. I don't even have one pair of shorts that fit me. I looked for some shorts this past weekend, but every pair I saw were either down to me knees or they were coochie cutters. I need something in between.


9. We haven't even started opening our pool yet. I told my pool boy (The Rockstar) today that he better get on it. It was almost 90 here today. Ya know, I tell people that my summer job is an aquatic engineer :-)

10. There's a first for everything...and today was a first. For the first time ever I wore a dress to work. I normally only wear a dress to a wedding. But today, it was for no particular reason. Our custodian stopped me in the hall to tell me I looked very nice today...made me feel good :) It's hard to see in the picture, but the dress is white with little black polka dots. It is sleeveless, so I had to wear a cardigan with it to work.

First off...Adorbs in that dress!!! and those shoes are too cute! On the lump, I know it is scary but most of the time its nothing. I will be saying prayers that you fall in that category! Happy last weeks of school!

That dress! I love it!

I will keep my fingers crossed on the lump. You might remember I just had surgery in Dec to remove one.

YAY FOR SUMMER!

Linda Sherwood said...

I love the dress!
I'm glad you caught the lump, and I hope it all goes well.
My husband wakes our kids up to Alice Cooper blasting School's Out every year on the last day of school. I love it!

best of luck on the lump, had a similar issue and it did turn out to be nothing...they did remove it just in case and i was good with that too...diagnosis - lumpy boobs = i will take it.

Love the dress - can't wait to wear a dress when i am down more...as for shorts - had this same conversation with my mom friends at the ball park the other day - someone said try lands-end - i looked - they are kind of frumpy

Jen said...

My boyfriend recently went through the same nonsense with his doc...LAME!

You look CUTE in that dress! I always bust out the dresses when it gets warmer because I hate shorts. Hope the next 9 alarm days fly by for you :)

Connie O said...

Fabulous look with the dress and shoes.

I had a lump scare a few years back too that turned out to be nothing. Hope yours is resolved quickly and painlessly and also turns out to be nothing.

Elizabeth said...

Hottie!!!! :)

You look AMAZING in that dress...love the shoes...I am crossing my fingers the lump is nothing serious! Enjoy your last few days of the grind!

Cheri said...

ADORABLE in the dress!!

Nine days for us too! I can't wait to sleep in. Although I have two "camps" in June for youngest son that require alarms...but I'm getting them over with in June so the rest of the summer we can be off a schedule. ;-D I think they start them early to beat the heat. And avoid feeding them lunch, lol!

Vanessa said...

Adorable Dress! You are so cute!
I'm so jealous of summer vacation!!!! Alarm clock in closet -- really jealous!

Kay S said...

You look so great in that dress! I am super envious of your alarm-free Summer. Check out Old Navy online for shorts. They have them organized by length, so I know that they have in between booty length and bermudas.
Hoping everything is fine with the lump.
