Check-ups

I have finally made doctor's and dentist's appointments after a long hiatus. It's been a rough two and a half years, and during that time my health has taken a back seat to all the other demands of my life. Maybe I am on the road to a healthier me, starting with the dental appointment I just made for Friday.

Still on my mind: the art of listening (I'm going to try some new strategies)

My tarot card: Page of Pentacles

Deep concentration
scholarship
news
a bringer of messages
a young person makes the seeker proud
a careful child

or

bad news
delinquency
illogical thoughts
wastefulness

I had a very scary dream in which I apparently had breast cancer. Thus, the sense of urgency has arisen to go to the doctor and have my parts checked out.

yea...check ups are a blast arent they...i go every year now since i turned 40 or so for a physical...get the blood levels checked and a rectal exam...that one is a joy!!!!! however it is something we all must do if we want to be around for a while... boy thats a ride when you go home isnt it?....we always stop to check out antique shops and sometimes it really adds to the length of the trip.....

Glad to know I'm not the only one who has a problem sticking to the "annual" part of annual checkups. Good luck!
