What a day...
First, the SO stayed home this morning, which threw my schedule off. Therefore, I was 1) late leaving to work, and 2) forgot to open the curtains for the plants. But I called him as I was crossing the bridge, and he said he'd take care of it.

Then there was as accident on the freeway, and I was delayed again. Got to work about 20 minutes late, and discovered 4 cars in the patient parking lot (instant stress). Got inside, and realized I had patients every 15 minutes (starting 20 minutes ago!), and and emergency patient added in. I could have bemoaned my fate, but I just jumped in, and worked efficiently, yet still gave the level of personal attention I like (at least, I think I did, you'd have to ask a patient to be sure, but everyone seemed happy).

Somehow, I managed to get done at 12:00, which was a miracle considering only one patient didn't show (and that slot was taken by the emergency).

Got my fish tank lights set up on timers, and saw an extra patient during my lunch hour. Then jammed through the afternoon (only 3 per hour there), and got off by 4:30... or I would have, because all of a sudden, there was internecine war between the two offices. Someone at one office was demanding stuff be sent over right away, the new girl was following protocol from office #1's manager, but office #2's manager was yelling about her taking too long. Upset new girl, who has already had rules bent for her (she's a pretty one, she is, but smart and a quick learner too). I always thought she was above the petty office BS, but I guess not. So now each office is mad at the other... that burned up about 20 minutes of my time, until I told them to let it go, it was over, and stop ramping themselves up more. Which went over well.

Then, the better part. I managed to make it to the library before it closed to get a book I want to read on my anniversary trip to DC - Turning Tables. I saw it in some gossip magazine review, and it looked really good. I was so glad it came in before I had to leave. I also have P.S. I Love You to read, but those are the two I'm lugging for the 12 hours of flying. Who knows if I'll finish even one, but I bet I will, as I can't sleep on planes, anyway.

I had bought quite a bit of the new MAC line, Neo Sci-Fi, which is actually a lot of warm tones. I need them because I've darkened & reddened my hair, and all the cool blue tones I've used in the past are not quite right. So I went to Nordstroms (or Nordy's, as I like to call it), and discovered they were having their HALF YEARLY SALE!!!

*danger, Will Robinson* *flailing robot arms*

Christ, I so cannot go crazy there... and I managed to rein it in. Well, mostly. I got the cutest pair of Coach platform thongs! And I didn't pay that! It was only $93 on sale! They are my second pair, I got these at the last 'Half Yearly' sale. Have I worn them? No, because it was winter... but it's summer, baby, & I can't wait!

So I managed to keep the spending to a dull roar, and skipped home all chipper.

When I got there, I found a new health insurance card on the table. Now, my plan is notorious for sending out new cards for nothing, so I almost didn't look at it. But I did... and discovered that my doctor... MY DOCTOR!!! is no longer with the plan. And I understand about dropping plans that don't pay much, because I'm in the field. And I know my plan is a bad one, but it's one of the few the SO can get through his work. But... I have a ton of health problems, mostly managed now, but I can't bear the thought of trying to bring a new doc up to speed, especially considering I have 3 file folders at my docs office. And I can stay with the office, but I have to see a nurse practitioner... and I don't know how I feel about that. I mean, I have a great rapport with my doc, and I'm sure she'd see me if she could, but this damned insurance... and open enrollment isn't until the fall for the SO, and I have several appointments before then...

Then I looked in the living room. The curtains the SO said he'd open? They're closed. And it's 8 pm. So no life, no love for the plants today.

.....

It's been a rollercoaster of a day... and tomorrow? Busy as hell, and I have to pack for DC... and now my mother is on the phone. Oh, wait, she was just touching base. I think I'm a little overloaded right now.

I should be making list of what to take to DC (because I'm a notorious overpacker), but what I really want to do is sit down, grab a beer, and watch "So You Think You Can Dance".


I think I'm doing the latter.
