Joe, that does sounds stressful. I hope you can find a situation that is more satisfying and less chaotic.
Tweety, hopefully your day is going smoothly and it warms up soon.
I had an appointment for a eye test (checking visual fields) this morning at 9, and on my way there I get a phone call, which I answered because I have hands-free ability in my car. It's the eye doctor office asking me if I was supposed to have just the test, or was I to see a doctor? Hmmm. I thought I was to see a doctor there, but then their office called me to book the appointment and said it was only the test, even when I questioned them. Well, i'm to see a doctor, but the soonest is at 3 pm today, but do I want to do the visual field test this morning or this afternoon? So by then, I was only 10 minutes away and the voice on the phone assured me I wouldn't have to pay 2 office visit fees. After the test, which I don't think I did well on, I asked what the doctor visit would entail. It will be a full exam, including dilation and looking at my retinas. I asked if they could get the records from the retina specialist I just saw 2 weeks ago, and she made it sound like that was my job. Plus I also had a complete eye exam the same day as the retina one. Is it any wonder I am becoming anxious, almost panicky at these visits. After this visit I stopped at work for a meeting that had a different focus than I had expected. It was about recent reportable illnesses in our area, including meningitis , Hepatitis A and now the novel coronavirus, which is 50 miles south of us. Fun stuff. I had to dash out at the end to meet the fireplace tech at home, and the crazy one was so disappointed because she had questions for me.
I am now at home, waiting for a technician to come and check out the gas fireplace, then I will drive back to town for the eye exam. Hopefully I have time for a run to burn off some of this anxiety.
Hope everybody's day is going better than mine.
