You either want to hold on to summer or you're ready to jump into fall and all the pumpkin spice items available for your sweater weather heart.
Because my mind works in mysterious ways sometimes, I went to Bing's AI image creator. I typed in "summer flip flops battling pumpkin spice, digital art" This was the result.
Care to pick a side? Honestly I'll take either one. Just please don't give me a parka and tell me we're expecting a foot of snow.

The place where we had lunch is in an old hotel. I'm talking seriously old. It was built in 1826. They have tables set up in several different rooms. In these pictures we are entering and walking past the cash register and the other picture is one of the rooms off to the right.
We both chose the stuffed chicken breast with mashed potatoes and green beans. I had a side of coleslaw and Amanda had cottage cheese. Both of us took half of our dinners home. We also splurged on a piece of chocolate peanut butter pie to take home.
I was so stuffed from lunch that I didn't even eat dinner that night. I saved my leftovers for the next day.

So did I buy anything while I was out? I sure did.
2 soaps at Bath & Body works
A purse at Boscov's
A few Christmas decorations and some fall napkins for a decoupage project at Hobby Lobby.
I spent way too much money on things I didn't need but I had fun.
Tomorrow more about our lunch.

Saturday Amanda and I went out to do some shopping and go out to lunch. She had seen some Christmas things at Hobby Lobby and they're all 40% off now so she wanted to go there.
Our first stop though was Michaels.
Next we went into the Millcreek Mall because Amanda wanted to stop at Bath and Body Works. They had their soaps for $2.99 each
After Bath and Body Works we went to Boscovs. They had a clearance on their purses so I thought I would get one.
Then we went to Hobby Lobby. After that it was out to lunch at Sugar n Spice
Tomorrow I'll show yo more of our day out.

Or at least I'll answer all the questions the best I can.
Most of you said that you weren't familiar with this kind of test. Rather than me trying to explain it poorly I'm giving you a link that will tell you what it is and how it's done and why.
There was also the question as to what was wrong and why I was having the test.
Well over the course of the past year I've had a few incidents where I had a shooting pain go up my left arm and across my chest. It was sort of a squeezing feeling that kind of took my breath away. Each one only last maybe half a minute. After several of those (months apart) I thought I better go to the doctor. First they did blood work and then she sent me for the EMG. Why I had to go for the EMG is beyond me because in her office she even said that everything I described pointed to heart. An EMG is for someone who has symptoms of a muscle or nerve disorder.
Did I get the results back yet?
The doctor said that they would be to my doctor by noon Monday. They never called me. As I'm typing this late Tuesday, I still haven't heard from them. The last time I called them regarding test results I was told, "We'll call you". The doctor also said that from a quick glance it didn't appear that there was any problem. That didn't surprise me. I didn't expect him to find anything.
Did it hurt?
I had an EMG and a nerve conduction study. For the nerve conduction study, some of the shocks were rather strong. They start out mild and grow in intensity. I was beginning to wonder if I would walk away from there with a permanent twitch. The EMG was what I was stressing about most because of reading about them inserting needles into the muscle. Turns out the needs were super tiny like what they would use for acupuncture and I barely felt them.
I think that pretty much covers all the questions. My big one now is what will they do next or will she do nothing. Maybe they would prefer I just wait until I have a heart attack and the hospital can deal with me. I suppose that sounds a little over dramatic but sometimes doctors make me feel like I am nothing but a nuisance to them. That could explain why it takes a lot for me to make an appointment in the first place.
