BodyFlow, Surgery Rant and a New Job

I might have mentioned that I was taking a Line Dancing Class which ended last week. The teacher was a bit of a turd. She wore a back brace and was a gazillion years old. But I went and learned that I'm not really a line dancer. One of my previous managers is a friend and she talks me into all these different things. Like Belly Dancing 2 years ago. Line Dancing this year. And then she said we should go to BodyFlow at the gym. Sort of a combo of yoga and tai chi.

OK. I went. I twisted and turned and sweated. I have no core. Yup. Me. I can't balance worth beans. And when she wanted me to bend my leg under me or do those funny leg positions and squats I wondered why oh, oh why was I doing this and not lying on the couch watching CSI.

But I'll go back. Because my core sucks. Every Thursday night at 8:30-9:30 pm. I'm usually in bed at that time watching CSI.

And as to my surgery date to have my gallbladder out. Well, they left a message today to tell me my surgery was booked for Friday, December 23rd. That basically means that some some other sod told them to F-off and turned down that day.

Having worked in the hospital at Christmas, no friggin way does someone have surgery the day before the almost 50% shutdown of a hospital for 2 weeks. If there are any complications I'm SOL for reaching anyone with any knowledge of fixing me up. The booking dept is closed until Monday morning but I left a message to say NO. They will need to reschedule me sometime in January like the surgeon said. It's all elective anyway. What if I were to die during surgery. What a nice Christmas present that would be for my family. 

You know what is really amazing. I have actually had 3 surgeries in the month of December. Because no one else wants to miss out on their turkey dinner. Not this time I say.

Just ranting here. 

And in other news, I start at a new location for work on Monday. I still work for the same employer but a different team. I've gone from a 10 minute drive last summer, to a 20 minute drive at my current location to a 40 minutes drive north of the city. Should be exciting because I have had nothing to do for the last three weeks, other than read books. At least it will be an experience. And I'll still have a job when all the others are downsized in a couple of years. 

I think ahead.

I remember when I was deciding on the date for my lapband op and chose 18th December I was surprised that I was able to choose any time of day I wanted - now based on what you say I can see why!

I know what you mean about your friend cum previous workmate. I saw my ex boss the other day in the hospital and told her that I now had so far to walk from the carpark that I was doing an extra half hour a day walking - and was enjoying it. "Right" she said "so from next week you'll have to carry weights to make it harder". So far so similar to you, but the difference I'm afraid is that I said sod off. My inherent laziness is stronger than I am, whereas you try. Guess whose going to live longer...

Good for you for trying new things! I'm always a chicken to try new exercises, for fear of looking like the stupid fat girl that doesn't know what she is doing! You'll never know what you'll like until you try it!

Marie said...

Nice Rant! LOL! I should do one too. I feel it coming on!
Great that you are ahead of the game job wise.

Amanda said...

lolol I love that you called her a turd!

There is no way I would have surgery on the 23rd of Dec. You have got to be kidding me!

Good for you for trying anything! I want to work on my core also.... Are you still having bouts with your gallbladder? It was a relief for me to have it done with...

Miss you!

Sam said...

I am glad you are not having too much trouble with your gallstones so that you can say no to the Christmas date :o) I hope you get a better date soon :o) and have fu at your new location!

Oh, good luck with the GB surgery (early.)

Andrea said...

Good for you! There is no way I would want to have surgery 2 days before Christmas!!

Jen said...

I'm so glad you're telling them NO WAY. Enjoy your holiday. Besides, you deserve the best of care not some fill-in doc.
Love to you!

Stephanie said...

Surgery over the holiday? No freaking way! Hopefully you were able to get it rescheduled!

Ahhhh, Line Dancing.....the core of every high school dance and prom I attended. I've been line dancing pretty much since birth. Not by choice either, when you live in Hickville, USA, that's the only dance you dance. Lol. Oh the memories.

Good luck on your surgery!!
