That’s the sound of me drowning in life. And this is a post to say I can’t post today. Well, not a substantive one. Here’s why:
A bladder infection reared its head toward the end of date night Monday. So we went to Urgent Care and, for the first time ever, it was packed.
I spent two and a half hours there (only 20 of which were in the actual exam room), and then we had to go to Walgreens for the meds. Which meant we paid out of pocket and didn’t get home until midnight.
I set the alarm an hour later to compensate, but that meant more emails (and, therefore, stress) when I did get up.
I put the alarm back to its normal time last night, but I didn’t hear the alarm thereby managing to oversleep an hour this morning. Which means there were more emails than usual and a slew came in while I was catching up on those.
We still haven’t heard back from Tim’s medication nurse, who was supposed to call in a prescription for a fibro med the Friday before last.
I’ve left a couple of messages and sent a couple of emails. The appointment tomorrow was supposed to be a checkup on how the prescription is doing. Instead, it’ll just be to get the medication. Ugh.
She swore that she gets back to people quickly. So given that and the fact that she’s in her 70s, I actually did a quick Google search for her name and “obituary.” Not sure if that’s morbid or prudent.
I had to reschedule Tim’s aquatic therapy tomorrow, since it coincided with the nurse appointment. Which means being away from work for two hours. Which means stress.
I need to check in with the gastroenterologist’s office today or tomorrow to see if we’ll ever get an appointment.
I was finally able to book Tim’s flight to Washington yesterday after days of checking in to see if the damn miles had credited to our account. I also booked the car. By now, it was $75 more than expected, but whatcha gonna do?
In exactly three weeks I’ll be flying out to FinCon. Speaking of FinCon… August 31st is the last day to vote for the Plutus Awards. If you think I’m spiffy, please use this link and fill out the nomination form wherever you think my blog fits.
Back to actual FinCon: I haven’t configured talking points, preferably with examples from the blog, for the panel I’m on. I won’t even meet the fourth person or the moderator until the day before the actual panel.
I need to work with Tim to help him do the exercises (movements, really) that the physical therapist prescribed.
I want to get back to reading/commenting on other blogs.
I want to keep working out.
I want to hit Labor Day sales to see if I can find at least one new, affordable shirt this year. A pair of more flattering pants would be nice too.
I need to schedule a facial (using a Groupon, natch) for myself before the conference because my skin’s been a little problematic.
I’d like to actually write a post the day before instead of the morning/afternoon of the thing going up. That’s my goal for tonight. As soon as I stop hiding under my blanket in the fetal position.
What’s been overwhelming you lately?
