I'm looking at spring break as a time to relax but also as a time to take care of stuff that I can't usually do with a completely rigid and inflexible schedule. Because I have a completely rigid and inflexible schedule and it's starting to get to me.
The pharmacy I go to is on the Air Force Academy, which is an hour from my house and about 30-40 minutes from my work. So when I need any kind of refills, I have to either take half a day off (waste of half a day) or schedule it for a day I'm already off. My last pick-up was a day in January when Scott was off, so I took off. Before that it was Christmas break, and before that it Thanksgiving break. They're not open on weekends OR any bank/school holidays. Life is very inconvenient sometimes.
Same for going to the eye doctor. I hate the eye doctor a lot. I always have. It's always such a production. I needed an appointment though because my prescription had expired in November and I was about to run out of contacts and 1-800-Contacts doesn't let you use expired prescriptions. The very last place I'm ever going to waste a Saturday or an evening is at the eye doctor. So I went on Tuesday, and there was a bunch of paperwork even though I was already a patient there and then there's the whole contact lens fitting thing: they always reschedule me to go BACK for another appointment so they can "make sure" my contacts are fitting correctly.
I've worn contacts for 18 years. I guarantee you that they will fit.
And then they try to dilate my eyes and I tell them no because last time it was miserable. Also, I hate eyes....and I have no one to drive me home. I can't believe they let me drive home last time. That was irresponsible on their part but, then again, this is an eye doctor on a military base so...as is true when dealing with military doctors...credibility isn't usually high.
Tuesday's trip was less traumatic than usual, but I think that's because it was an older male doctor and he actually explained what he was looking for while he was shining bright lights in my eyes. I appreciated that. And upshot is that at least my eyes are healthy. I don't have a whole lot of health problems, but I rarely go to the doctor these days without them telling me something is amiss.
Then I went to Starbucks and they dropped my drink all over the floor.
Iced coffee with cream and sugar. Much cheaper than fancy syrup-infused iced coffee when all I really want is iced coffee.
Also, I ordered something from Target.com and it just never showed up. I never got any kind of confirmation emails about it so I couldn't track the package. When I talked to customer service this week, they pulled the item up right away when I provided my email. So there had apparently been an order. But the representative placed an order for another one at no charge and gave me an order number and said a confirmation email would be sent to me. I never got an email. So I'm just kind of wondering how this will play out...will I get two? Will I get any at all? If I get two, I'll give one away on here. Because no one needs two identical 2016 calendars from Target. I probably didn't even need one.
