The Ramblings of an Un-Trained Mind...

Wednesday, June 25, 2008


I’ve spent more time than I would have liked to this week sitting in doctor’s offices. I’m not a big fan of Doctors, especially when they are running tests and give me vague references to my results, such as “this was really high”, rather than specific and concrete facts.

My workplace changed insurance companies in February of 2007, and since then I’ve only been in to see the Kaiser people twice. I’ve done the military-thing, so I’m quite accustomed to never seeing the same doctor twice, but this week has been ridiculous.

To top it off, I was told to make a follow-up appointment in 10 days, but I had to do that by phone (rather than at the desk while I was standing there). So I’ll be returning (again) on July 7th – and seeing yet another doctor! (What are the chances he’ll have my test results and be willing to actually tell me what they are in plain English? I’m not betting on it.)

I’m trying to motivate myself to show up for work tomorrow. I’m not feeling real well right now, but that could be the entire container of Greek Potatoes that I ate for snack, rather than an actual sickness. I have Friday off to finish packing and getting my car’s oil changed, before we leave on our Family Vacation to Ohio.

We’ll be visiting Granddaddy, Jr and Minnie Mouse for four days of fun and excitement. The Caterpillars are thrilled, because they heard there will likely be a water park trip. (And B10 is dying to go to their local Zoo.) Hubby was able to take off work, which is exciting – I wasn’t looking forward to the drive alone.

Wednesday, on the way home, we’ll stop in Kentucky and drop the Caterpillars off with their Daddy for two and a half weeks.

I will miss them terribly, but my Mum has graciously offered to help me get our Master Bathroom finished while they are gone, and possibly do a substantial amount of work in our Sunroom. (We have a hot tub out there that we haven’t used in the year and a half we’ve owned the house!)

If you’ve not already popped over to see the blogs of one of my dear bloggy-friends, her daughter (another bloggy-friend) just had a beautiful baby girl. Welcome Home, Piper!

I am now off to contemplate work again. After out big event, it’s been slower, however I found a couple of interesting Fundraising/Non-Profit books in an old co-worker’s office, so I think I’m going to peruse those.

Pictures WILL be uploaded to CW’s Baking Post, as soon as Blogger lets me…

I'm fairly certain that the entire TWO containers of Greek potatoes have more than something to do with it, and I will be lonely without you tomorrow (so please come).

I'm going to be posting some yummy stuff over at sweet! in a bit - keep your eye out.
