This is a Keeping It Real post today. We're going into the third week of August and fall is knocking on our door. I'm more than ready for our vacation next month. I won't deny that last week was not my best. Having a woozy head most of the week, the depressing news around the world, a mix up in an appointment, plus a plumbing problem didn't make for a great week.
More appointments are on the calendar for this week. A redo of one that I went to last week. When I got to X-ray on Wednesday for a bone scan, the technician told me that I was just there in February and nothing would have changed in 6 months plus my insurance wouldn't cover the cost if one is done more than once a year. So I went back home.
My memory isn't as good as it used to be, but I thought all the way home that she was wrong. I got home and looked on my calendar at my February appointments and there it was. Yes, I'd gone in to the same place but it was for an ABI, not a bone density test. An ABI is a test for peripheral arterial disease. Which I don't have, btw. So, I called back and explained and they looked again on their end and said I was right and apologized profusely for the mistake, so now I will going back this week for the test. Oh well, maybe I'll get to see the geese crossing the highway again.
Another appointment this week is the dreaded dental appointment. Folks, I hate going. Hate it. I'd rather have a gyn exam. Seriously. I'll be glad when that day is over. Am I the only one with dental phobia here?
The water problem in the downstairs bathroom reared it's ugly head again last week. Just when you think you have a problem solved...surprise! There it is again.
I didn't know what would be involved in the bathroom water fix. I'm afraid I lost my hearing after I heard the words jack-hammer and breaking up concrete. All I could think about was that I was going to have to change our home's name from Pond Hollow to Grumpy Villa. Oh, I wasn't being pessimistic...just realistic! Of all the household problems BG dreads the most, it's plumbing issues.
The good news is that a little ole 9 dollar sewer tape threaded through some pipes this weekend cleared out what was stopping up the pipe and causing the water to run out a place in the wall. Okay, I'm not sure how it got to the spot in the wall because
Happy Monday to you!
