My nightmare did not come true

A few weeks ago I had to take a glucose tolerance test at the Dr.'s office. It was so unpleasant. I have taken the test before and I don't remember it being that bad. I had to drink an orange drink at home and then go to the office for a blood test. The drink is not that big but I could barely finish it. As soon as I finished it, I got pains in my stomach. All I could think about the whole way to the Dr. was how good it would feel to throw up. If your test shows that the glucose levels are high then you have to come back for a test that takes 3 hours. I have been wondering what my results were and on Monday night I had a dream that the Dr. told me I had to take the 3 hour test. In my dream I started to cry and I refused to make an appointment to do it.

Tuesday morning the Dr.'s office called me. Now they told me that they will only call for abnormal test results, so I KNEW why they were calling. "We got the results of your glucose test," the nurse said. (Oh great, my nightmare is coming true), I thought. "They were normal," (yay!) "But your iron is low, we have to call in a prescription." I was so happy at this news for 2 reasons. 1) I do not have to re-do the glucose test. 2) I get to eat more steak.

Ice Day

Today there was no school for the kids due to an ice storm. Some schools were closed yesterday, but not ours. I got up at 6am to check the closings and then turned off the alarm when I confirmed that there was no school. At around 7am the school's auto phone message called to tell everyone the news. At 8am I woke up to Ada wailing, "Why didn't anyone tell me?!"
Ben said he didn't need anyone to tell him because he knew the night before. He is magical.

When will Saw end?

I started watching the Saw movies after reading a message board post about the top 10 movies with a twist ending. I simply love twist endings. I had seen most of the movies on the top 10 list already except Saw, which I never would have considered before.

When I started watching the movies, Saw -Saw III were already out on DVD already and I only had to wait a month or so before Saw IV came out on DVD. Yes, there are twists in each movie, but each movie answers only some questions and creates several more. I had to wait a whole year to watch Saw V, which I watched last night. Of course that led to more loose ends so it isn't over yet. I just read that Saw VI is set to come out Oct. 2009.

At this point I am not even enjoying it. I have just invested so much time into it that I feel the need to finish the series.
