Happy Canada Day.

It's Canada Day here in Canada, so a vacation day for many people.  As dh is contracted out to a factory and they won't shut down mid week, his Canada Day is on Friday, so he gets a full three day weekend, so that's good.

My physical went as well as it normally does, lay on the bed, make small conversation with the doctor and nurse while he does his thing!!

I posted this on this post, but thought it was worth posting it again:
This is a laugh for all those women out there who so look forward to that wonderful time once a year when they get to become "intimate" with their OB/GYN doctor. In Sydney, Australia one of the radio stations pays($1000-$5000) for people to tell their most embarrassing stories. This one netted the winner $5000....

I was due later in the week for an appointment with the gynecologist! Early one morning I received a call from the doctor's office to tell me that I had been rescheduled for early that morning at 9:30a.m. I had only just packed everyone off to work and school, and it was already around 8:45a.m. The trip to his office took about 35 minutes, so I didn't have any time to spare. As most women do, I like to freshen up when making such visits, but this time I wasn't going to be able to make the full effort. So I rushed upstairs, threw off my dressing gown, wet the washcloth that was sitting next to the sink, and gave myself a quick wash in "That area" to make sure I was at least Presentable. I threw the washcloth in the clothes basket, donned some clothes, hopped in the car and raced to my appointment.

I was waiting in the waiting room only a few minutes when I was called in. Knowing the procedure, as I'm sure you do, I hopped up on the table, looked over at the other side of the room and pretended I was in Paris or some other place a million miles away. I was a little surprised when the doctor said, "my, we have made an extra effort this morning haven't we?" but I didn't respond.

When the appointment was over, I heaved a sigh of relief and went home. The rest of the day was normal.. Some shopping, cleaning, cooking,act. After school when my six year old daughter was playing, she called out from the bathroom, "Mum,where's my washcloth?" I told her to get another one from the cupboard. She replied, "No, I need the one that was here by the sink it had all my glitter and sparkles in it.

My arm is fine, he had a look at it, and poked at it, and doesn't think there is anything in it's a case of wait and see I guess?
Now don't faint, but I didn't go out in the garden on Wednesday!!

So, do you get TWO Canada Days this week? I think you deserve time off complete with maid service and a cook. Just lie around, eat bon bons, and be pampered! . . . . . . Nice thought, anyway. ~Liz

Hey! I've got it! Put Molly in charge.

Oh, that's too funny. We sure do need something to sparkle up these visits. I'm sure it gave the doc a giggle, too.
Happy Canada Day!
