Why is it so hard for a mommy to take care of "HERSELF"? I take quite pride in my schedule/organization abilities. However, this morning couldn't have gone more wrong. I had made an appointment with a dermatologist in May for this morning at 8:40. They called yesterday to confirm and to ask me to get there 15 minutes early. I'm thinking "No Problem"... it is if you wake up at 8:40!!! Not only did I wake up then, but I woke up to the house alarm going off because the kids were downstairs shutting the cabinet doors too loud. Apparently it sounds just like a window breaking! Who knew? I throw on some clothes and call them to let them know I am on my way. As I get off the highway, my gas light comes on. SUPER!!! This clinic is near Wesley, there aren't any "nice" gas stations near there. I take my chance and drive straight to the appointment in hopes I will have enough gas to get to a station afterwards. I walk up to the Check In desk and give them my name. This nurse looks at me with a semi-glare and says, "You'll need to reschedule." No problem, being late was my fault. She's taking back by my easy disposition and actually cracks a semi-smile and proceeds to look up the next available appointment. Yeah, I will be going back there on OCTOBER 20!!!! In a semi-smart ass way, she gives me a reminder card and says, "You might need one of these." Thanks. I get back in my car and even make it to a decent gas station to fill up my car.
Why is it when it comes to everyone else in the family, I am all over appointments? I'm even early to most! But when it comes to me, I am a slacker! I hope that nurse is working October 20th, I'll be there 30 minutes early with bells on.
