Stayin' Alive! (and lookin' good while doing it!)


My Dad's surgery was a result of an aortic dissection, caused my a congenital twist in some of his arteries. His doctor suggested that my sisters and myself get echo cardiograms to see if we have the same defect. WELL ALRIGHTY THEN!!!

I'll get right on it, after I have my annual pap smear and mammogram. I'll follow that with my body checks and excisions at the dermatologist. Next up on the agenda...a colonoscopy! For my grand finale I'll get my teeth cleaned and x-rayed. When I'm done taking care of all the things I need to stay alive, I'll take my children to the pediatrician and my dogs to the vet!


But wait, I'm not finished yet. We can't just stay alive-we've got to look foxy while we're doing it. In order to stay reasonably well groomed, there are the appointments I must have and should have, including, but not limited to: hair cuts and color, spray tans, manicures, pedicures, (yeah right-I wish) bikini waxes and facials. God knows if I did all the laser treatments and chemical peels my dermo has suggested I'd be in either a medical office or beauty salon 24/7!

Since I can't do it all, I have to put my priorities in order.

Ooops! Gotta run, I have a 3:00 microdermabrasion appointment-and my facialist HATES to be kept waiting!! :)

I was just thinking about this in the shower today... how my next post should be about all the trouble I go to just to look DECENT- not even foxy!

I like to think of it as high maintenance.... and I'm worth it.

i have a ton of appointments to make, too. we have heart disease, big time, in my family...i should probably look in to seeing a cardiologist, on a more regular basis!!!
but yes...priorities..i can't possibly fit doctors in to my schedule...not with sushi lunches, schlepping sick kids around...and healthy ones...and, all the various hair and nail appointments. after all...it's not how you feel...it's how you look...who's with me on that!!!!

Don't forget the teeth whitening...they're always nagging on that!

Wouldn't it be great if we had one stop shopping? Get a mole removed, get your teeth cleaned and a manicure/pedicure all in one visit?

If we had better insurance, I'd go to the doctor more. But I don't need insurance to look this fabulous!

;o)
