And it is only Thursday

Some weeks have a way of lingering beyond their welcome.

This week is exactly such a week. I do not know why that is, nor can I finger any specific instance or series of instances, but the week is just dragging.

It may be  that I will actually report to the office on all five days--even though I escaped yesterday for an afternoon of fun filled doctors appointments topped off by a blood draw and my allergy shot. If only the doctors had been running on schedule maybe I could have parlayed some of the afternoon into pool side lounging. But no--by the time I left the first appointment with the added surprise blood draw and got my chores done, it was time to go off and sit at another doctor's office who was running over 30 minutes late for my appointment.

At least I was able to get my allergy shot while I was waiting. What a reward that is--an annoying needle prick in the arm! Yay!

I am beginning to have dreams about getting shots--really!

I tend to like to schedule multiple doctors for the same day--it reduces the pain of leaving work for these appointments significantly. But by the time it was all done, I effectively got home later than when I would have done had I worked.

And on top of that, my insurance company has dropped the ball on paying for all of the shots I've been getting--so now I have to call them and discover why it is taking over 90 days to reimburse the doctor who wants to charge my credit card. Ugh!

And then the Security Company called to advise me of a low battery situation in one of my sensors at my house! Great! Another appointment for a service call. Too bad they can't call and say something like: "We are seeing a low battery situation in one of your sensors, our service technician will be there in 15 minutes to remedy the issue."

What a service concept that would be.

But no, I get a two hour appointment block on Monday.

Like I wrote--it is only Thursday, and early morning at that,

At least it is only two days until the weekend and then I get to do it all over again with a whole new set of issues and problems. Like traffic as the schools reconvene for the 2012-2013 School Year. Busses, soccer Moms (and Dads), teachers and too many students joining the already crowded roads. That is something to look forward to next week!

Well, there is that way cool wine tasting I'm doing on Saturday to look forward to. And sleeping in (until 6AM) is always nice. Lawn to mow. Errands to run.

Weekend?

It is still Thursday.
