What's on your list this week?
I am joining force with the ladies at 5 Minutes for Moms for Tackle It Tuesday. Head over to their site, they have a great idea for an art and homework corner.
As for me, my "to do" list this fall is much more selfish. I am taking time to take care of myself, and today was a biggie, going on the doctor's office for that annual appointment, which I have been neglecting for the past three years. Most women hate this appointment, and I am no different except, thanks to the recommendation of two good friends, I now have new OB/GYN. Actually, she is a mid-wife and she is like a breath of fresh air. This gal is awesome.
I knew something was different when the nurse sat down and spoke to me about my family history rather than having me spend 20 minutes filling out a lengthy medical questionaire. Then to my surprise, she took my picture to place in my file, and after that she personally escorted me to the mid-wife's office to introduce her to me long before the phyiscal appointment began.
I felt respected, and that I was a human being not just a body. The care and attention these ladies gave me was simialr to the treatment one would receive at a salon rather than a doctor's office. Thank you again C and B for the recommendation!
I would also like to thank my other friend, K, for taking care of Bumblebee this morning so I could go to the appointment.
