Had another of my every-couple-months check-up of hormone levels and general health. As usual, everything was peachy. Since I’ve now been on hormones for more than a year, and everything’s always been good, I don’t have to come back until January 2016. Yay!
Now I only have to wait for my appointments with the anesthesiologist and the plastic surgeon at the end of the month for the pre-op consults. I don’t have a surgery date yet, but I expect it to be around mid april. We’ll see.
After that, Mom and I decided to go to Paddepoel for a wee bit of shopping. I got new toothpaste and mouthwash and checked out the spring/Easter decorations at the Xenos. I didn’t find anything that particularly struck my fancy so I left with just some tea and the cutest little jar of orange marmalade. I checked out my usual stores, but didn’t buy anything.
Now, Nienke’s been sick for a few days now, and for the last three or so, she’s been craving half a grilled chicken… I’d offered to get her one from the snackbar the other day, but she declined. Being in Paddepoel, though, I decided to bring one anyway. The butcher at the mall is amazing, and not expensive either. I bought a small, whole, grilled chicken to take home. I also got Mom and myself a cookie from the baker next door.
We ate the cookie in the car and then drove home, where Nienke and I ate the chicken. It was glorious! It didn’t end up agreeing with Nienke (not thát weird considering how little solid foods she’s had over the last few days) but it was worth it 😀
Today was also the first day in many months that I worked on Wednesday. As of this week, the company is no longer permitting the 9-hour work days I’d been doing for the past 9 months or so. I miss them a lot, as the 9-hour days allowed me to work four days and be free on Wednesday. I contemplated going back to 32 hours, but I like my current money. So now I work four hours @home first thing in the morning on Wednesday from 7:00 to 11:00 so I still have as much of the day to myself as I can.
