Today, at least the Russian maid is not cowering in the kitchen building nuclear bombs with all our cleaning chemicals. I was able to wake up and have a cup of tea in a relatively calm manner before taking on yet another episode of medical soap opera with Mama.
The next chapter involves a mammogram. Again, the Italian medical system is very confusing to me and has no logical structure. But it seems that my appointment has been secured by the Pharmacist and luckily it is not during my working hours so I will not have to cancel any lessons. Also, praise be the Lord, it is when my husband is home, so I will just have to drag him with me instead of Mama : )
I’m going to try very hard to make today a much less stressful day. I’ve got one lesson and the rest of my day can be spent with my cat, books and my Wii. Who knows, maybe I will even venture out to the cinema tonight and see Avatar…wishful thinking perhaps, but I’ll let ya know how it all turns out.
