I wish the theme of this note was my Rachael Ray tickets, but alas, it's not even close. Despite my wonderful Wednesday with Martha -- and it was -- I ended the work week exhausted. Had three meetings today and two concerned computer issues, one of the topics I'm least knowledgeable about and have to really concentrate. My mind was like a rubber band snapping back and forth. Didn't even get outside for lunch or a little air during the day. Decided I'd have a nice evening and went to Bath and Body, sniffed the yummy fall candles and bought fabulous Shea Cashmere Hand Cream, which was on super sale and I had a coupon. I also did a little Christmas shopping, which always makes me feel good. I had a slice of pizza, bought the new issue of "Women's World" to read on the train ride home and by the time I arrived at my building I was feeling much peppier.
Until I got the mail...I found a letter from my doctor's office. It was hand written and personal and informed me to make an appointment for more blood work. I have had a long standing liver problem of unknown origin, but the last few years have been great and I haven't given it a moment's thought -- until an hour ago. On Tuesday I will call for an appointment and move ahead with whatever else, if anything, needs to be done. I'd appreciate it if when you are saying your prayers you will add Buttercup's liver to your list.
I'm going to put worry away and light one of my autumn candles, read a few blogs and be grateful for all the good things in my life, including my dear blog sisters. I will follow up over the weekend with some answers to some of the questions about my visit to Martha Stewart and for a starter, yes, the camera really adds a good ten pounds.
Hugs and good wishes!
