Winter pond — I always post pond pictures when everything is blooming and pretty. Here it is in the deep freeze. This is a simple kind of beauty. You can see animal tracks on the snow where they climb down for water.
No patience, no patients – I had a doc appointment with a new super-duper specialist. I waited 1-1/2 hours. I closed my Kindle, got up off the chair and grabbed my coat to leave (I had enough of the waiting) when the doctor came in. This is the second strike for the practice. The first time, someone had written the wrong date on my appointment card so I appeared on the wrong day. I have a follow-up in six weeks. I am researching to make sure this doc with his super powers is worth it.
Speaking of no patience – I’m not a phone person. In fact, I hate it. Email me, text me or dang it, use snail mail but don’t make me talk on the phone. Especially not for a long time. (My teenage self is totally stunned!) This week I had two lengthy calls. One from an old friend (which I get) but the other was from someone who I had a business relationship with. She gave me 30 seconds of information but prattled on and on, reiterating it and seeking affirmation. I’m thinking of billing her for therapy. Between the two calls I used up two hours of phone patience. That’s all my body can stand for the whole year so don’t call. I’m all out.
On the subject of telephones – Do your ever get strange messages? We do. This past week someone called to ask (in a rather frantic way) where their tobacco was. They had paid but haven’t received shipment. This was a phone message that was preceded by a cheerful (?) message that identified the beloved husband and me as the phone owners. No business. Just a family residence. Sure hope the lady gets her tobacco. Maybe that was code for “funny” tobacco.
Slurpy – Morgan (the cat) had the sneezies this week. My computer looks like it was caught in the rain. I suspect the windows have spritz marks about a foot from the floor. More stuff to clean.
So how was your week?
