Another Thing Off My List!

I have a list of things I have to do, a long list. I'm happy to say that I can finally check off mammogram exam. I got my first mammogram a few weeks ago. I know, I'm five years late, but I tend to make doctors appointments and when the time comes I either reschedule or cancel because I let anxiety get to me. I went to my appointment after seeing my therapist, so I was wearing powder and deodorant. I was told that they give you something to remove it at the office. I thought good, I don't have to worry about being stinky when I get there.

It turns out it was at the same place I needed to go for another appointment two days later for an ultrasound (no, I'm not pregnant). I asked if it was possible to do both on the same day. After checking with the nurse, she said yes. Off I went to drink four cups of water. To then wait until my bladder feels full so they can do the ultrasound. Half hour later I'm starting to get the urge to use the bathroom. An hour and half later still nothing. Eventually, I had to use the bathroom because I could no longer hold it (I suffer from incontinence). Drank for more cups of water, by this time I'm starting to feel sick from drinking so much water. Kept waiting and waiting. Nothing.

Then, I get called for the mammogram. The technician doesn't asks if I'm wearing powder or anything. She sees the powder and gets annoyed. Tells me, you don't wear powder or deodorant for mammograms. She shook her head and twisted her mouth. She thought I didn't see it. Then gives me two wipes and leaves the room. I felt like a child being scolded, but I thought about what they said when I called to ask about wearing deodorant. Oh, well. Too bad if she was annoyed.

I'm overweight, so there was a lot of pulling and pushing to get me in the proper position. I didn't know whether to help her lift my boobs or let her do her it. She hardly spoke to me at all. No explanation about the test even though she had asked me if it was my first time. After it was done, she left the room. I had to ask her how long I had to wait for the results. Lets just say she lacked bedside manners if you know what I mean. Or maybe it was because it was late and she was tired of seeing tons of boobs all day! Who knows.

The whole thing was uncomfortable and a bit painful. Her attitude made the experience worse. I was glad when it was over, but it had to be done. A week later, I went to see my doctor. She told me my boobies are healthy. Thank God!

Back to the ultrasound, by the time I was finished with the mammogram I had to use the bathroom again. It was a little after 7 pm. There were still people waiting. I was tired, my son was tired of waiting and I honestly couldn't drink another four cups of water. We went home. This was my second time trying to do this test. They make people wait too long. Then on top of that they wrote on my records that my test was fine. The doctor thought I had done the test, she said good thing you told me because it says here that they didn't find anything wrong. Sounds like they need to hire new people on that department!

Long Time No See!

I haven't blogged in ages, bad blogger! I haven't been online that much lately. Been busy with life, appointments, errands and computers messing up. Computers that it took me three days to make them work. Then there is the fact that when I try to write posts I get distracted with something else or my mind goes blank. So here I am, giving it a try to see if this time, I do finish a post!

A few weeks back I won two giveaways! It couldn't have come at a better time. I was having a crappy week. So thanks, ladies! The first giveaway was from The Art of Random Willy-Nillyness and the other from New York Chica. I received the first one already. I was like a little kid with a present, excited! I received a box of goodies, from candy, super warm comfy socks, to a robe, to a mug and more! You can see a picture of the socks, the candy and mug below. There were two pairs of socks so I gave one to my daughter. She's always cold, so she was very happy. The candy didn't last long (I have a sweet tooth). They were delish! My new mug, love! If you read my blog, you know I'm a TV addict! Can't wait to receive my other giveaway. A $50 gift card! Thanks to @CaroGonza and @NewYorkChica for the great giveaways. Check out their blogs for more giveaways!

Snow + Netflix = Relaxation!

And just like that, it is over! We didn't get that much snow as you can see by the pictures. I took these from my window, the first two was around 4AM, the third one was around 6AM. I don't know around other areas, but around here it didn't look like a blizzard at all. From the news, I expected something like the blizzard we had in 1996! For that one, the mountains of snow were taller than me. Good times!

It looked pretty though and it was so peaceful. Like we say in Puerto Rico, no había ni un alma en la calle/there was not a soul on the street. Then the snow plow truck passed by and the beauty disappeared. photo 935824dc.gif

Oh well, until next winter! Yes, I'm already thinking about next winter. Me no like hot weather!

We started renting movies from Netflix again. There are so many movies that we have to catch up with. We rented The Hunger Games and The Dark Knight Rises. We have been streaming for over a year, but as you know they don't always stream the popular ones. We are going to be snuggling, relaxing and enjoying our snowy weekend watching two good movies. I also have to empty my DVR, it is 100% full.

Talking about TV, I am loving Netflix's House of Cards. I'm up to episode 8, so so good. That's the movies envelope you see below, they are promoting the show everywhere! I love that I can sit and watch the whole season in a matter of days, sometimes in one day! No commercials and no waiting. I do hate when I'm about to finish the seasons, so I try to delay it, lol. I know, it's sad. Don't judge me. 

If you are into politics and drama, this show is for you. I'm not hardcore into politics, but I do enjoy the drama, lol. Only in movies or TV that is. Not in real life! No drama for this Mama. photo 52991d7ff65a05526454bd1170a0f14c.gif 

Before I forget, here is my Friday Fill-Ins meme. I'm a day late, but better late than never. If you want to join the fun follow the link. Now to eat some lunch and go look at all the snow pictures people have been sharing. Enjoy your weekend, mi gente! Yeah... 

1. In New England, it snowed a lot
2. There are LOTS of snow pictures all over Twitter, Google+ and Facebook.
3. Ahhhh, love snowy days
4. Finding new shows on Netflix is my favorite thing to do nowadays. 
5. Last night, I had a dream about something, I can't remember
6. I have been watching recipe videos on youtube which is the perfect way to learn how to cook these days. Love it! 
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to watching a movie, catching up with some blogs, tomorrow my plans include watching another movie and Sunday, I want to empty my DVR and relax con mis hijos!

Blogthings: Are You Stuck in a Rut?

Long time no see! My mind is as blank as those pages in the picture. When I'm away from my computer doing something else I come up with posts, but as soon as I sit here my mind goes blank. So as I was looking for some inspiration from past posts, I saw some quizzes I had done at Blogthings. What is the first quiz that pops up? The one below, I am totally stuck!

You Are Stuck in a Rut

You would be the first person to admit that your life has gotten a little stale lately. There is not much new going on.

You are in more of a rut than you realize, and this could explain why your creativity and inspiration have dried up.

The terrible thing about ruts is that they make you feel like you are stuck in the same situation over and over again.
Being in a rut makes everything feel more difficult, and it seems like nothing you do is helping.

To get out of a rut, you need to shake things up completely. Don't think - do. Don't look - leap.
It may seem like so much change is crazy, but the more you change things the better. You need to show this rut who is in charge!

Latest Music Videos - Kelly Clarkson & Carrie Underwood

I'm loving these songs by Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood. Kelly Clarkson Catch My Breath is playing a lot on the radio. I find myself singing to it each time. Both videos are great, but I like the first one better. IMO, the could have done better for the second one. The one by Carrie Underwood was just posted on YouTube a day ago. Another great song and video! I'm starting to enjoy country music a bit more. I have the TV show Nashville to blame for that, lol.♥
