I Have This Amazing Knack….

Dear Diary

… of scheduling my life so that all the activities are dumped within a month-long span at the end of the year. This time around I did better, though — I actually REMEMBERED that I have all these scheduled activities. :smarty: It’s a bittersweet victory, though, because now I have to DO all these scheduled activities. :wazzat:

Here in New York State, doctors and specialists and optometrists and dentists are becoming scarcer. They don’t like the heavy regulation and they don’t like the onerous New York State health insurance/Medicaid system. I’ve had to switch doctors (especially dentists) more times than I can shake a stick at, because so many stop accepting state health insurance or they hightail it to another state. Like Texas. :ik:

Anyway, so doctors are kinda scarce. So that means that waiting lists are looooooooong. I almost always have to schedule my appointments a year or two in advance. YES! That’s a long time, and a heck of a lot of life can intervene in that amount of time.

For me, that happens just about every time.

I’ve been absolutely clobbered with work, school, and other activities since late August. I get up at 8:30 and work all day long until I collapse in bed around 1am. I have to carefully schedule my showers and bathroom breaks to check email and Facebook, otherwise I’d disappear from the Internet.

Well it just so happens that during this crazy burst of activity I ALSO have appointment after appointment after appointment. Not just for me, but for all the kids, too.

Why do I do this to myself? :wahh:

Just in the past three weeks, we’ve had four dental appointments, four eye appointments, four return eye appointments to pick up glasses… I’ve also had to attend a few meetings and some chic new-fangled, high-falutin “webinars” for work which means I must sit at my desk with NO KIDS and NO ANIMALS making all their noises like kids and animals do.

I’m just amazing. I can accidentally schedule my life so that everything happens all at once! :banghead:

Sorry this was so breathlessly written. IGottaGoNowKThxBai.
