Tomorrow is transfer day. I suppose I am expecting a call in the morning with the thaw report. They didn’t warn me to expect that last time, but having been through it once now, I expect it this time. Interesting, though, my wife forgot all about the transfer until she heard me tell our son tonight that I will not be going to work tomorrow. I am trying not to be irritated that she can’t even remember it’s happening, when I have friends across the country sending me good luck and supportive messages. They aren’t living it and they can remember. I don’t know – maybe it just makes me feel like she doesn’t care. I am just trying not to let it bother me.
I had acupuncture tonight and it was a good time to just breathe deep. I did some visualization…which is not generally my MO, but my mind was racing and it helped me get a few minutes of quiet – which I needed. Acupuncture again tomorrow after the transfer, and I plan to do the same thing. Breathe deep and get some quiet.
In other news, I am thinking about starting Grad School in the fall. I am looking to get my MBA. I am waiting to find out if my company will pay for it. If they will, they have guaranteed that I will not be looking for a new job until I graduate from my MBA program. I have to take the GMAT to get into the Grad School program and I am seriously out of date on my testing skills. Well, not so true. I took a brutal test to get my professional certification not too long ago. But I was doing some practice testing for the GMAT, and I am at least out of practice on the kind of stuff on that test. I need to brush up on my algebra – it’s been a long time.
I signed up for a conference in July, another in August and 4 month online education course for a certificate in innovation implementation. Life is going on regardless of what happens tomorrow. That feels good.
I also called my insurance company today to find out of weight loss surgery is covered. It is, but the conversation did not get off to a good start.
Agent: What can I help you with today?
Me: I want to find out of weight loss surgery is covered on my insurance.
Agent: Bariatric or, like, Jenny Craig?
Me: I don’t think Jenny Craig does weight loss surgery.
Agent: Yes, but it’s a weight loss program.
Me: I am specifically interested in weight loss surgery, in particular, the gastric band.
Agent: So, not Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers?
Seriously. Most stupidity doesn’t surprise me anymore, but that definitely caught me off guard.
