Work Imitates DIY

Today, my worklife began to imitate my DIY life.

You know – those projects where you know it’s going to take a little time, but you’ve planned it out and you figure you have all the right tools. Then, when it comes time to actually do the work, it’s a whole ‘nother story. Well, that was today in a nutshell.

On the plus side, 7 a.m. rapidly became 10 a.m. which politely turned into 12:30 which almost instantly transformed into 4 p.m. And from there, 5 p.m. was a blink. I love when that happens.

I did not hear from the mother today. I’m guessing that means that the mother didn’t hear from the doctor. (Not surprising. This guy surpasses my doctor when it comes to the failing to call you back category.) Unfortunately, that doesn’t necessarily mean good news. So I guess we wait until tomorrow.

After a brief darkening of the sky, the sun is out again. If it’s not raining when I get home, I really should try to mow the yard. It’s a mess – and with rain on tap for tonight and tomorrow, it’s only going to get worse.

I guess we’ll just see how I feel when I get there and what the weather looks like outside.

You might call the doctor's office and ask to speak to his nurse about getting him to call you. Imho, receptionists are rarely good about getting things done in response to phone requests, nurses are much better.

Actually, it occurs to me that no news is probably good news. If it were bad news, he would have probably called right away.
