Day 147: *yawn*

Thursday, May 26, 2011

That sort of sums it up. I don't feel as tho I've done all that much today, but the usual housework really took the sap out of me, and the grocery trip was a little more involved than the early-in-the-week one, so... mebbe that's why. I slept better last night as there was a little less tossing and turning from Himself, but it still wasn't especially restful, so I'm happy to see bedtime roll around tonight.

I couldn't stand it anymore, and I SWORE I wasn't going to do this, but I called the doctor's office to see if I could get an appointment for him. Now, it's not Memorial Day here - they don't do Memorial Day - but it is the 'last weekend in May Bank Holiday' weekend. Technically, it's the Spring Bank Holiday. Yes, there's a first-weekend-in-May Bank Holiday, but that's a holdover from the old (old old old) May Day traditions, you know, as in Beltane and the Druids and all that fun stuff. Don't ask me. I really have no idea what I'm rambling on about.

Anyway, there are no appointments available today (it was 12-ish when I called) and they're all booked for tomorrow, too. 'And of course with Monday's Bank Holiday the office is closed--?' Yes, of course. Tuesday--? Nope. And they have to leave some slots open for emergencies. 'But if he takes one of those--'

No can do. Because if it's an emergency, then he should go to the hospital, pronto. And if it's not urgent enough but what it can wait till Tuesday, then--

*sigh* Joseph Heller didn't invent Catch-22. Bureaucracy and office receptionists did.

As I said, that sums up my day. And attitude. *grumble grumble* I'm going to bed.

Goodnight, Sparklers, wherever you are!

    There is really nothing more frustrating than encountering the healthcare realm, no matter what part. Ugh! Hope he gets an appointment, goes to it and gets better soon!

    Sounds like here! that is why I like the doctor's office with a walk-in side---you might have to wait a while but you will be seen as you came in---and I have had to wait as long with an appointment.

    How frustrating! Here you are trying to help your beloved have a happier life, and you're met with one obstacle after another. Well, I suppose it could be worse. But I do hope you have a long and peaceful sleep tonight!
