Call Me A Pretzel
No, better yet...take me out for one!
This post was meant to be a subtle rant, and then I started thinking about pretzels (you'll get it in a minute), and then started looking for an image of one online.
That's where I messed up!
Because of course, (yes, I do know not to being a sentence with "because," thankyouverymuch!)
that little trist onto the internet landed me at Auntie Anne's, by far the YUMMIEST pretzels in the world!
Just the thought of walking into the food court of the local outlet mall, and being assailed by the wafting scent of freshly baked pretzels is enough to make me want to jump out of this chair and make a beeline for their little storefront.
Aaah....freshly baked, with salt and a tub of that over the top icing.
Somebody shoot me!
OK....so by now you're likely wondering WHERE in the world this post is going.
Or WHAT in the world has happened to me.
Or WHY in the world I'm not resting like I'm supposed to be.
Or WHO in the world is going to be the first to show up at my door with pretzels I'm treating to a pretzel.
Or WHEN I'm going to get a life.
Or HOW I could have EVER turned a post about pretzels into a shout out to Precept Ministries. :)
Alright...let's get this train back on the track, shall we?
WHY you should call me a pretzel is because I'm so bent out of shape that it's not EVEN funny!
I had my much anticipated appointment at the Mayo Clinic today, only to find out that the doctor couldn't view the MRI cds that I had worked so hard to have copied from the hospital, and which my sugar bear sweet husband had jumped through his skin to go and get just in time for today's appointment.
It took an act of congress to get them copied, lemme tell ya. Good thing we're on a first name basis with Senator McCain!
(For all you literalists, I'm kidding!)
The kind doctor assured us that the computer whiz people there at Mayo could get the cds to work, but then I came home and put them into my computer, only to find that 2 of the 3 truly are nonfunctional.
So, grab your partner 'cuz here we go...
The process now starts again...
Back to the hospital for another pick up of MRI cds.
(This time, I'm taking my computer with me and I'll check to make sure they work while I'm sitting there!)
The good news is that my Mayo doctor went ahead and ordered new MRIs, as it's been 5 months since the last ones.
Alas, all was not lost.
Yet, I have no more answers today than I did yesterday, and I had so hoped for some.
OK...enough whining and complaining in one post...
It's time for a GIVEAWAY! (Whoop! Yay! Alright! Cool!)
I want you to experience the joy that is my Auntie Anne's pretzel with icing.

Gotta run....the outlet mall bed is calling me!
