Rumor has it there are people who wake up, shower, and even dress before drinking coffee. There are even people who don’t drink coffee at all, or so I’m told. I do not trust people like that. I need a cup of coffee just to turn on the coffee maker. I might have a problem. It took me three cups of coffee just to work up the wherewithal to call my doctor this morning just to tell them I cannot make my appointment. THE appointment that I set four months ago because I really need to talk to him about something and don’t want to wait until my annual in September. And I had to cancel. Why? Because our new dog ate my glasses and I cannot drive without them. Three cups of coffee did not make me feel any less of a moron about calling. Just sayin’.
I know that I made several neurotic references to my premeditative state of possibly bailing on this appointment anyway, but I really was planning on going. I like him. More or less. As far as doctors go anyway. I only get neurotic because I have to deal with so many different doctors all at once. I miss the day when I could go to one doctor for everything. Not anymore. Everyone is specialized now. Add to that, I’m a caretaker of many people. Between Mom’s COPD (She’s in her last year probably), Dillon’s Epilepsy, and my In-Laws cancer (they’ve now passed), I’ve logged a few thousand hours in the doctor’s office. Therefore, I tend to avoid them even if it’s for me. I have made a committment to improve on that. Caretakers absolutely suck at taking care of themselves, don’t we.
The laugh is on me though. Instead of seeing one doctor, I now get to go see the eye doctor instead and get my glasses replaced. (it’s only two miles away) Probably should pick up a second pair to hide in my bra drawer just in case the puppy eats those as well. I live in a houseful of men — want to hide something you don’t want them to see? Put it in your bra drawer. Works every time. Not even a child dying to know what you got him for Christmas will look in there.
Hope you guys are having a great friday. I’ve got U2 on the stereo and I’m organizing the new space. Looking forward to the rest of the month.
and don’t forget to Breathe.
