My husband had been acting tired lately, and I chalked it up to the fact he was putting in a lot over hours on the job, and he was getting older. But despite my nagging him to go get a check up, he refused. So when my annual check up came around, I proceeded to tell Dr. S about his symptoms.
"Wait a minute....who's getting the check up today?"
I grinned. "Me, but I can't seem to get him to come see you."
"Is he out in the waiting room? Good; I'll deal with him when we're done. Now let's get to your health."
After he pronounced me healthy, he walked out to the waiting room door and signaled to D to come in. D wondered if something was wrong with me; Dr. S shook his head.
"She told me about your symptoms; you will make an appointment to see me asap, and you will keep it. Understand?"
D protested, but Dr. S didn't back down. And finally agreed to be seen in a few weeks.
Then, on Halloween, my oldest son went out and bought a long yellow wig. He borrowed one of my stretchier-fabric dresses, crammed his feet into a pair of my pumps, and wore an old bra of mine, which we stuffed with socks. And walked around the neighborhood as a girl.
I think the daughter put on the 'Scream' mask and cape and walked around with her friends. And we all laughed when K returned, carrying the high heeled shoes, and swapped them out for his sneakers!
Tried out some new songs last night at karaoke, and found out my friend J has a very good voice! She sang Frank Sinatra's My Way and did VERY well!
Here's my score card:
-Complicated (Avril Levign): Bleh. Was a bit warbly and even off-key at times.
-Cool Change (Little River Band): I love this song, and was thrilled when I nailed it! Even received cheers:)
-Crazy For You (Madonna): I love this song, but I don't like the way I sound in the speakers. I'll keep this for an 'after midnight' song.
-I Will Be (Leona Lewis): Another song I love, and I did it fairly well; just need more practice on the bridge.
-Talk To Me (Stevie Nicks): This is one of my all-time favorite Stevie songs, but it apparently doesn't like to be sung by me! Too low on the verses, so unfortunately, this one I will only sing in private from now on:(
-Stay (Sugarland): Need practice; I wasn't entirely sure of a few notes.
-Listen To Your Heart (Roxette): Had to end the night with a song I know I do well, and again received cheers:)
I'll be a our 2nd annual Harvest Moon Festival tomorrow, so I'll see you again next week!
