Three Weeks Til My 50th Birthday Party.

My actual birthday was in April, but summer is a better time for party.

The party is on July 22. But from the 16th to the 23 my family will be renting a lake house and hanging out. So, it's more like two weeks until the party starts.

Although, I'm having my first colonoscopy on the 14th. I'm not really happy about that. But I should be recovered by the time the party starts.

I don't have any other big things scheduled between now and then so I'm taking it easy. By which I mean I'm worrying about everything. I'm going to order some more of my anxiety meds.

The colonoscopy isn't as bad as it sounds. The rougher part is the prep beforehand, and as long as you can stay home, it's not that bad. Helpful tips: make sure the drink is cold cold cold. It's a lot easier to drink that way. Plus someone suggested to me that using a straw makes it easier, and I found that to be true.
Both Craig and I had ours done early in the day and were perfectly fine by afternoon, just a bit tired from the anesthesia.
Thanks for the tips.
What I know about colonoscopies I learned from comedians.
so they don't make it sound fun.
Jeff Foxworthy explained the importance of not drinking the fluid all at once.

The instructions tell you to have (I think) eight ounces every twenty minutes. There's no way anyone could drink the whole thing in one fell swoop.
