The meds they give you to put you under feels good, though. You'll be so totally relaxed that someone needs to take you home. Then you get some pictures, which you can regard as souvenir. But that cleansing really sucks.
Your commute sounds quite trying. Having to do it day after day must not be easy. I'm glad you are able to find motivation in it.
Hope today and tomorrow turn out OK for you.
I actually live in the county due north of Knoxville in the country and have a LONG commute each day to NW Knoxville to work.
That's the one test Kate that I baulked on w/ the doctor.

Wow Stacy! I hope he can sell them at the end of the semester and get some of that money back.
I work in a prosecutors office and we just had a police report come in where a student stole his roommates textbooks just to return them to the campus bookstore to get a couple hundred dollars in cash!
(((BEX))) I'm sorry about all the layoffs around your office, that must create a very negative environment, even if your own job is safe. I worry about layoffs often because I work for the government and the budget is always being cut. I'm low on the totem pole and get paid very little, but I do know my office cannot function without me and my position cannot be eliminated.
Sorry to hear about the wedding stress too, that sucks. DH and I very consciously had a small wedding - only 14 people total including us, and no wedding party at all. It was the right choice for us. Less stress and no burden on any of our loved ones. I'm so glad we stuck to our guns and did it that way. Weirdly we did receive a lot of pressure from all angles to have a bigger, fancier, more wasteful wedding, but we resisted. Unfortunately we are still carrying around the cost of the 14 person rehearsal dinner on DH's credit card 3 months later!!! *sigh* Do you at least get to wear a pretty dress? I've never been a bridesmaid (maybe brides can smell my cheapness) but it seems way overrated. ;)
ldp - everything you eat sounds delicious to me! :) I'm a vegetarian though so maybe that has something to do with it. :) My co workers things I'm weird too. Especially when I eat hummus ... or plain baby carrots. But they eat gross fast food so I don't care what they think. ;)
