Making doctors appointments

I’m so not a fan of making phone calls. I have a tendency to babble because I’m nervous. I’ve got a semi-fear of the phone. If I know who I’m talking to, I’m just fine, and I can jabber on for hours. Anything else, and I’m a shaking, quivering mess. So, right now, I’m a shaking, quivering mess because my nerves are shot.

But, the good news is that Ethan is now officially transfered to Dr. Pridgett, at Pediatric Associates, in Topeka, KS. Madison has an appointment in July, for her 5 year check-up, since we’ll be out of town in June for her birthday. Ethan has one 3 days after his third birthday, for his third year check-up. He missed his second year, as did Madi with her 3rd and 4th year, because Medicaid kept screwing with their coverage and their doctors.

Now, I’m waiting on a call back from an gynecologist that’s come highly recommended for me to see, since I’m nervous with doctors. She’s supposed to absolutely be amazing. My sister-in-law saw her until she (SIL) switched insurance providers. My mother-in-law saw her before she passed. My friend, Kristen, has seen her through 3 pregnancies, and 3 cesareans. I should be hearing back sometime tomorrow, since the phones are closed at this point.

Venus Vibrance Review – What a Joke

I bought the razor at the advice of my husband. He thought it would be better for me, since it supposedly exfoliates and all that at the same time. My review? Not all that it’s cracked up to be. I got more nicks with it than I’ve gotten in a long time. Maybe it’s because it’s the first time I used it, but I’m not a fan of nicks.
My legs do feel smoother, but there were a lot of skipped areas. It’s harder to tell where you’ve been. Plus, with the vibration, it felt like I wasn’t getting as close of a shave as with a regular Venus 🙁
That, and my armpits? I shaved like normal, and had to go back over it with the razor off, just to get the areas that it kept skipping *ouch*

Nice thing though, is that with all of the Venus razors, the blades are all interchangeable, so I don’t have to use the Vibrance blades with the Vibrance. I can use the ones I get for $8, instead of the $10 Vibrance. That works for me.

I don’t seem to have a lot of luck with the Venus series. I’ve tried most of the blades, and so far, just the regular work for me. Once again, proving that my body prefers the cheap stuff over the more expensive.

I made 2 appointments!!

Not a lot of people know this, but I absolutely hate making phone calls. I hate it with a PASSION!
But, I overcame that fear and made 2 appointments, and left a message to make a third!! Woo hoo!!

The goal of this appointment:
