Summer Vacation: Take Two!

Well kids, it's that time of year again.
My summer vacation started with chicken cordian bleu pizza (honestly, the best food known to mankind.) I showed my mom the movie preview. She liked it. :D I then decided to take a nap. I asked my mom to hit me in a couple of hours. The next thing I knew, mom was yelling at me to get up in the you-need-to-get-up-right-now voice, not the you-asked-me-to-wake-you voice. I heard her yell, "We have to be at the doctor's in 15 minutes!" I knew I had a doctor's appointment at 10 am on Tuesday, but I was pretty sure it was around 6 pm on Monday. Then I heard, "You're going to be late for your EKG!!" Nope, I had grossly errored in my time estimation. Instead of 6 pm Monday, it was 9:45 am Tuesday. (Hey, I hadn't slept the night before! I was helping Quia roll clothes. I wouldn't have missed that for the world, though. Ry and Faz were helping, too and it was hystarical!! And then straightening up the stupid give-away pile. That I would have been willing to miss, if I could have.)

Anyway, so I go to get my EKG done, I swear, I was the youngest patient there for at least 50 years. I'm not kidding. The nurse just kind of looked at me, when they called my name. She told me I was too young to be there. Ha. I wish. After it was over, I told my mom that I was officially old. Really, I don't think I just turned 20, I'm pretty sure I just hit 70. I just happen to be in college and not look old and have only been on Earth for 20 years. Hmm, maybe I was on a different planet for the other 50 years. . . (I can just see Syd reading this and smiling, while thinking, "That explains so much. . . ")

Anyway, I'm now working on getting registered for classes at NSU. Good news: If I get into all the classes I want, I'll be a junior come fall!! I'm thinking somebody I know is going to graduate with her class!! :) The only downside is that I probably won't have time for a job. (I'm going to be in class for a billion hours every day. Or maybe like 5 or 6. Ha! This should be interesting!) And of course, there's all the various heart tests that I'll be doing this summer. I already had an EKG and tomorrow is the cardiolite stress test. Basically, inject stuff into The WP's veins and then put her on a treadmill untill she passes out and then take pictures of her heart. W00t. Or something. I hadn't been home for 24 hours, and I've already been to the doctor's. I don't know if that bode's well for the rest of the summer.

But I am glad to be home. I mean, I'm going to miss you all like crazy, but it's good to be back.


  1. Welcome to get passed out or die trying club. Membership fees are 10 cents and are due upon each entering of the club house. Or whatever.
    I can't speak for everyone, but I will say this: I'm praying for you WP, that the classes go well, that the testing goes well, and that you don't exhaust yourself in the process.

    Hummmmmmm ...
    Yep! That does explain a lot! Probably too much!!!! *wink*

  3. I'd watch myself with the summer classes. They tend to compress those. They'd be really easy if they didn't try to through so much at you at once. They make up for it with homework. For every hour of summer class add another three for homework. Seriously.

    Good luck though. Hope it works.

    God Bless.

  4. You know, all the doctors need to do is just wait until you're a week into summer classes and then do the stress tests. While you're in class, no less. Saves time all around, don't you think?
