Tuesday's Taxing Trip

Well my friends that's about all you are gonna get from me today. Did it make you smile? It made me smile.

I went to the DR's and I DO have a sinus infection. Guess I am not just a lazy you know what for not wanting to do anything for the last couple days and for being so tired after Adam was here.
I got the antibiotics and should be feeling like a human again in a few days.

I drove myself to the Dr and the UPS truck was blocking the handicapped parking spots so I had to park and walk in. It was pretty hot though and after I finally got to the Dr's office I was sweating. Why didn't I bring water or a towel or a portable shower or a fan? The air conditioner wasn't on in the office either. All the other patients were fanning themselves with magazines too but they didn't look like they were caught in a rainstorm like I thought I did. I saw the NP though and she was nice. All in all it was a successful, painless visit. Except I had to go to the bathroom (darn water pills), which is in the hall. So on the way out I stop there and now, suddenly, you need a key from the receptionist. No way am I walking back into that hot office. I decide to wait until I get home, I am only 15 minutes away afterall.

After that on my way home I decided to get a Dunkin' Donuts Coolatta, yeah I deserved it. However my drivers side window won't open anymore so I had to reach behind the front seat through the back window, which by the way is child proof so it only opens 1/2 way down. I am sure they wondered why this soaking wet fat lady wouldn't just use the front window. Anyway I scraped enough coins to pay for a small strawberry, which by the way was delicious. I dropped a few of them out the window as I reached, oops sorry that was your tip. Well they didn't even give me a napkin so I'd say we are even.

Then I drove through the pharmacy, yeah still driving through because I am too hot and wet to get out in public. Only the drive through there has one of those sliding out things not a window, so I had to position my car just perfectly so I could open the front door and still have the drawer slide out. This took several attempts, the Pharmacist was taking care of an inside customer and kept waving to me that she'd be right there, I think she thought I was debating on staying or leaving. I'd pull up, then stop, open the door, shut the door, pull up, stop... you get the picture.

Well finally I am in the driveway and I go to get out of the car, remember the bathroom visit I skipped, well now I am thinking that was a bad idea. Especially since I finished the Coolatta already. What was I thinking?

Thank God that is all over, I have had a pill., a short nap and now finally blogged. I can now allow myself to go to sleep for the night. Tomorrow is going to be a much better day, it has to be. It is after all POGO Wednesday.

1Pe 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:

Love that cartoon! It definitely made me smile.
I feel your pain...the sinus infection AND the window. Mine rolls down it just won't roll back up. You have to pull it up and then press the button to keep it there. lol
I've been caught with it down in many a rain storm. :P
Hope tomorrow is a better day for ya.

I love the picture...very cute...
what is it with drovers windows, mine you have to push the button just right or it will not work, and for the air, now that is a laugh and a half, because you can hear the blower and all, but it will not blow ANY air out....Think it is a vacuum hose...so we have to blast the poor babies with wind to keep them cool....
So glad you went to the doctors, and will be on the road to recovery...

I'm so glad you went to the doctor and got some antibiotic. Hopefully, you'll be feeling better in no time flat!!

As for that window incident--I wish I had been there to see that!! I was sitting here laughing just reading this!! What is it with car windows?? Mine was stuck and it was always a problem, especially at the bank!!

You rest, drink plenty of fluids and feel better.

I'm so happy to hear that you got to the doctor. Those sinus infections are real killers! Glad you got some rest.

Your story had me laughing so hard. I could just picture it and it was so funny. I don't know why we put ourselves through these things like no using the bathroom when we have the chance.

Hope that you're getting the rest you need. Talk to you soon.
