Today I kept busy with small things that I had been putting off. I know, I know. You're absolutely shocked to find out that I'm a procrastinator! LOL It's almost like my hobby, really. Anyway, I spent a lot of time at my desk today, grading some papers, making some phone calls, and receiving a phone call.
I don't like to make appointments. I don't know why. They aren't painful or embarrassing. I think some of it has to do with my southern accent; it just really catches people's attention here, and I'm just a teensy weensy bit self-conscious about it. Teensy weensy. I hope Wes doesn't read this! ;) I had an eye doctor's appointment back in December, but that was the day after a big wind storm and the power was out all over Vancouver. So I needed to reschedule since a month ago. I also have received two notices in the mail that it's time for my annual mammogram. Oh, joy! I guess that would fall into the painful and embarrassing category, so there's my excuse for not calling that one in a hurry. Well, today I decided I was going to get these things done, if I had to sit at my desk all day. Need I say that it took a very short time to make these appointments?
Another thing I had been putting off was getting a typo corrected on an insurance card. So I called there, and it took a little longer than the doctor's appointments. But the actual resolution of the problem was incredibly easy. I just told the guy the problem, he verified who I was, and fixed it. After that, my way was clear to register us for a supplemental insurance which will help pay for my diabetes testing supplies and medication - a tremendous help!
Middle of the day I received a phone call from a young friend in Texas needing some advice. I was glad to talk to her and try to help her. This young mother was a teenager 10 years ago when Wes became assistant pastor at our sending church; now she is a wife and mother of four little ones. She and her husband are doing a great job raising their kiddos! It was nice to talk to her today!
In the middle of waiting on hold and talking to my friend, I was clearing my desk and credenza. I procrastinate on that too. My desk was so messy that even Andrew noticed it, and that's saying something! LOL I had more on my list of things to do, but only a few more. They will still be there tomorrow, I'm sure.
It's supposed to snow again tonight, with sleet and freezing rain to top it off in the morning. I think tomorrow would be a good day to stay in! ;)
And thank you all for your comments on my rant. I didn't realize that many people even read my ramblings. I was just so heartsick about it last night - not so much offended as heartsick. It was nice to know that there are still a few of us out there who believe in guarding our hearts and eyes!
