I seem to be complaining a lot lately.  Today it was a morning medical appointment with the cardiologist that turned into 3 hours.  He wanted CT Scans done while I was there.  I had them done and was told to wait for the results.  I waited one hour, only to be told that they just received the reports but couldn't tell me anything until they talked to the doctor, who, of course, was at lunch.  I left!

Then it was take dog to groomer, already 1 hour late, get lunch and make it to another appointment for my husband.  That one lasted an hour, most of it waiting.  Then, time to pick up the pooch.  It was now 4:00 PM and not one return trip home.  The entire day was spent either waiting or coming and going.

I know that there are many, many more problems in life than mine today.  I know this, and I'm working on not letting these things get to  me...but, at the moment, they still do.

We have so many time-savers today.  Most of them are electrical.  I think some human time-savers would be just what the doctor didn't order today! :-)

Thanks for listening!


  1. How true! Interestingly, after I had a heart attack at 31, I arranged to have my BP taken 3 times per day at the plant dispensary per doctor's orders. When I was under crushing deadlines but had a plan to meet it and was executing to that plan, my blood pressure went down. When little things like certain types of personnel issues and the like frustrated me, my BP would rise. Moral: Work hard; have a plan; it's healthier!

  2. I do work hard, Don, and most of the time with a plan. However, you know what they say, "the best laid plans..."! :-)
