Today, I received a call from the clinic at 8:00 a.m. to confirm the afternoon appointment with the doctor. They had called me on Friday and left a message, but by the time I came home after jury duty, it was too late to call them back. I confirmed that I will be there in time for today's appointment.
My appointment was at 1:00 p.m. I was at the clinic with 15 minutes to spare. But, by the time I was checked in, weighed, blood pressure checked etc., and seen by the doctor, it was past 1:30 p.m. My pressure was good and I gave them the record of daily readings I had been keeping, as well. The doctor checked me and signed the medical clearance form. It was close to 2:30 p.m. when I left the clinic.
I came home and had a late lunch. There was an email from my supervisor, so I called her back in response.
Then, I called the dentist's office to tell them I received the medical clearance and to make an appointment. Next week Wednesday was the earliest they could give me and, according to the receptionist, it was for a deep cleaning! Um, what about my extractions? I would have thought the deep cleaning could wait until after the extractions were done! The receptionist said that that was something I'd have to discuss with the dentist, once I see him! Oh, dear! As if things weren't stressful enough!
After all that, I felt sleepy! I tried to stay awake, but gave up and took a nap! From approximately 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.! No doubt that is going to mess up my sleep patterns even more!
Later, I watered the garden, front and back, took the trash cans to the curb, handwashed a few items of clothing, and put away the laundry I had already done. A few hangers have now been put back the normal way, indicating those garments have been worn.
One of my cousins called to tell me about the passing of a family friend and I called her daughter to sympathize with her.
Later, I video chatted with my daughter. She'll be home in time for dinner on Thursday night. She asked for take out from our favorite Thai food place, so I'll pick up our dinner on my way home from work, that day.
It has been another fairly warm day with the highs in the low 90s. It will continue to be in the upper 80s and low 90s for the next 10 days according to the weather forecast. No rain, of course. 0% precipitation, according to the forecast. Summer is here!
Today, I am grateful for:
- The doctor's appointment went well.
- My pressure was good.
- I received my medical clearance.
- The dental appointment has been made, even if it is for a teeth cleaning and not the extractions!
- Early evening naps.
I have not been posting to do lists, lately; time to start posting them again, I think.
Tuesday's To Do List:
- Go to the office
- Bring the trash cans in
- Change bed sheets and remake beds
- Laundry (bed sheets)
- Freeze the overripe bananas (too hot to bake!)
How was your Monday? Did you have a good start to your week?
