Frustrating Day... With a Happy Ending.

My day today was pretty much nothing but frustrating for me! Let me explain the MAIN 3 reasons why (in order of occurrence & annoyance, coincidentally):
1* I FAILED my 1st gestational diabetes test so I had to go back in this morning to do the 3 hour long one. The fact that I had to take another test was not the problem (since the condition I had before I got pregnant, PCOS, made me insulin resistant & it's fairly common to have gestational diabetes among PCOS women... not that big of a shocker). The problem was I showed up @ 9:30am so that I would have plenty of time to do the 3 hour test & get to school on time. Mind you, this is a fasting test so I'm already STARVING! Well, I waited 45 minutes before they even called me up to look at my orders (AFTER I told them I was there for the 3 hour glucose screening when I signed in)! SO they drew my blood, I drank the drink, & had my blood drawn every hour for the next 3 hours. The REALLY fun part was they had to stick me @ least 2 times every time they did a draw (just because my veins are small & like to be uncooperative) so now I look like I've been shooting up heroine!
2* Since they started my test late, I was late to school. Normally, not the end of the world, but TODAY I had to do a group presentation to the class on the virus that causes chicken pox & shingles. So I was STRESSING the entire way to school worried that I would be late for my presentation, while I'm trying to INHALE some food! Well, once I get to class the first group was just finishing up their presentation; my group is next... WHEW! We go up to do our thing & find out my spacey teacher didn't make copies of our outline for the class, so she decides "Oops... you guys can just go Wednesday & hopefully I remember to copy them tomorrow." After all I went through to get here...ARE YOU SERIOUS???
3* I spent the majority of my weekend reading, writing, & ultimately perfecting a respiratory case history that was due today. Let me just say, I was very proud of my efforts & the out come of my paper (it was like our mid-term). All the time I'd spent thinking of nothing but Valley Fever & Tuberculosis this weekend turned out to be a waste when my teacher decided to announce at the end of class that she was extending the due date for 2 MORE WEEKS so we would have more time to study for our lab practical. OK, that info would've been more helpful on FRIDAY since our practical is this Wednesday & I could have used my weekend to study for that instead of focusing my efforts on the stupid case history!!

One positive thing that came from all my frustrations today... since I had 3 hours to kill I was able to finish reading the 4th book in the Twilight series... I love happy endings! I had a little bit of an epiphany, & I just want to say that I can totally relate to Bella's perspective about being over joyed that she & Edward REALLY will be together FOREVER!
It's a little sappy & pathetic but I couldn't help but think of the promise that I will have Anthon forever; He'll have me forever and we'll have our baby forever!! There's nothing better in this life than to have that knowledge & blessing!!

WOW, what a day. I love happy endings too, though. Glad things worked out somewhat well... :| Sydney and I love that picture of you two, by the way. I don't recall having seen it before. She got all excited and said, "Anthon, Nash!"

Seriously, when it rains it pours! Glad that day is over for you. I loved the way the Twilight series wrapped up too! Nothing like a happy ending.
