What a boring day …
Got up early, took a train into the city. Spent the train ride reading Crem’s paper over his (quite comfy) shoulder. Got off the train and took a ride on a rickety old CTA bus. Wandered around a very large complex of buildings on the UIC (University of Illinois Chicago) campus and spent almost too much time sitting in a very uncomfortable chair. After spending time sitting in a uncomfortable chair, I went, got 1/2 undressed, and sat in a small room.
Then, I rode an L train, had lunch in a Greek deli (with Crem) wandered about the city a bit more, and then rode another train out.
All in all it was quite expensive – $8.50 for the round trip train ticket, $4.00 for bus/L, about $10 for lunch, and $3 for coffee and $25 for the copay.
But — as the MasterCard commercial would say — peace of mind PRICELESS!!! I’ve been carrying around this stress since Sept. when I talked to my Midwife – it’s nice for it to be lifted. My shoulders feel about 1/2 as tense.
(Though I think the next time I get a hankering to have a lunch date with Crem — I’m going to plan for it to involve a LOT less travel, no copays, and no uncomfortable chairs.)
