I’m sure most of you have heard of the famous Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. Well, in my mind, I think of it as the Mayonnaise Clinic. By the time they get finished poking, probing, and squishing (you ladies will understand that term) me, I feel like a freshly whipped up bowl of mayonnaise. I have my every other year appointments all set up for Sept. 7. With no glass of wine the night before, and a fasting morning, I’ll be run through the mill all day. The Mayo Clinic is an amazing place, but I’m already trying to deal with my white coat syndrome. I HATE going to the doctor, but it’s necessary for me to get another year of prescriptions written. I’ll be relieved when it’s all over.
To that end, I finally called the dog kennel today, and got Emma signed up for another four or five day stay at the spa. I’m going to be driving the car instead of the rig, so I’ll drop her off on my way out on Tuesday morning. I also called the motel in Kasson, MN, to sign up for three nights there. I persuaded them to give me the same rate/night that I got in July. That was a savings of $15/night over what they were going to charge me. Of course, I’ll be in a handicapped room, but after my day at the clinic, I’ll probably feel that way.
The other thing I’ll have to do while I’m there is make a quick trip to Sioux Falls, SD, with the proper documentation this time to renew my driver’s license. My plan is to do that trip in one day, and return to Kasson. In the midst of all this, I’ll visit with my son and his family, and I really would like to get a meal at the locally famous Hubbell House (?). It was a stage coach stop over place way back when, and I do enjoy their shrimp dinner. Don’t think the three young grandkids would do very well at the slow paced dinner, but maybe Andy can get a babysitter for the evening.
Since I felt a bit punkie last night, I only did very sedentary chores today. Nothing planned for tomorrow either…
Thanks for stopping by… talk to you later, Judy
