When Is It A Hint?

When do you say - fine, I get the hint?

I just don't know. I know I've had this discussion with some of my friends before. And it was no clearer to me then than it is now.

For instance, a friend says he or she wants to go to a movie or dinner. But every time you suggest a time, your friend has a reason not to go. Do you assume that your friend is telling you that he or she isn't interested and just doesn't want to come out and say it?

Or how about a friend who says give me a call. But you can never get that person on the phone? When should you start thinking that friend really doesn't want to be friends with you?

When do you decide that you should just move on?

Anybody have any advice on when a hint is a hint and when it's just life coming at you all at once?

World's Largest

I really want to drive cross country. I mean, really want to.

And along the way, I want to hit as many of the World's Largest that Canada has to offer that I can.
Here are only a few that I would like to see ....
Ok, so I can see this one anytime I want since it's only up river about 30 minutes.
Largest Adirondack Chair in Varney, Ontario
Largest Nickel in Sudbury, Ontario
Largest Mosquito in Komarno, Manitoba
Largest Cowboy Boot in Edmonton, Alberta
Largest Hockey Stick and Puck in Duncan, BC. Ok, so I've been to this one ... but still, you see my point?

The Vampires Got Me

And they sucked almost a litre out of me.

I had blood work done this morning at 7:45. I just got home at 10:20. I spent a fun-filled morning at the DECH. Yay me.

My doctor (my awesome new doctor that replaced my old, apathetic doctor) ordered all the usuals - CBC, thyroid, etc ... along with all the "hormonays" (points to anyone who gets that reference) and a glucose tolerance test.

About 7 vials later, the nurse makes me drink the sickly sweet beverage. It's like orange pop syrup without the carbonated water mixed in. I then had to sit, yes SIT, for two hours. No drinking, eating, smoking, or activity for two hours. Then I went back and they removed more of my blood.

The whole point of having this blood work done is in preparation for a new script. If the tests go well, I will soon be taking a diabetic med ... not that I have diabetes. This med just has the fortunate side effect of treating some PCOS symptoms.

So I should know soon - soon as in NB Healthcare soon - if it's a go.

I Want to Cry

But I so can't, because it will just trigger a coughing fit.

I am so incredibly sick. I am unbearably tired. I sleep the whole night through, but apparently all I do is cough in my sleep. So I've been told.

The past two days I've only had Lauren. Both Alivia and Jack have been home sick. Same as me. Today, they both go to the doctor.

To top it off, I had to go out and shovel this morning .... poor lung capacity plus heavy, heavy snow makes for coughing fits of ginormous proportions.

All I want to do it curl up in bed and sleep. Oh well, maybe I will curl up on the couch and rest while Lauren watches TV. Cuz that's the kind of day it's going to be.
