What a day! My MRI consult was supposed to be yesterday (yes, please remember *supposed to*).
I arrived promptly at 2 pm for my 2:10 appointment. In case you didn’t know, I am punctual to a fault.
I proceeded to wait for almost 2 hours because of various emergency injuries that came in, which I am fine with. If I had a broken bone sticking out of my leg, I would want to go ahead of the knitting lady who needs her MRI read so she can run again. So I have no issue with waiting… I brought my yarn to finish embroidering something but I should have brought my DPN’s because I could have knit the entire waiting room matching socks by the time I was *seen.*
I am finally called back… and I sit and wait some more. The doctor comes in, says a few things, looks at my chart and MRI report… and tells me that he didn’t think that he was the doctor I was supposed to see- that another doctor was the ordering physician and I should see him. GREAT. I drag myself back up to the front desk and the doctor I need to see is out of the country on vacation until next week.
“You’re kidding me.” I said.
“No, I’m not. I can reschedule you for March 5th.”
“Why didn’t somebody figure out this before I waited for two hours?”
“We have a meeting on Monday to address some administrative issues and I assure you, I will bring this up.”
Apparently there was an administrative meltdown in the office and the person scheduling wasn’t supposed to be scheduling, but there was no back-up person available, blah blah blah.
Which leads me to my conclusion that secretaries run the world. Because if we mess up or are sick, the whole place is in shambles.
So I wait until March 5th. And I am calling to verify that the correct doctor will be there.
Then I came home to find this on my doorstep:
Mt Hearts and Roses Swap gift! Isn’t Susan amazing? What a wonderful package! The yarn is Lorna’s Laces in a stunning pink and orange colorway. I have never worked with this yarn and I feel so professional to have it! There is a beautiful needle case that I need to start using TODAY so my needles aren’t haphazardly all over the place. I wouldn’t want anyone to sit on them! My package also included Knitting Rules, by the Yarn Harlot. Candy, tea, candles, bookmark, and beautiful cards. Thanks Susan! And thanks Lynne, for organizing. I can’t wait for the next theme!
Also in the mail yesterday was my long awaited Kare Kingbury book, Forever. I have to get all my work done before even cracking that book open, because once I do… I won’t put it down until it’s finished! I will be getting a cardio working as a rush around the house cleaning and doing laundry so I can read my book!
