I was very glad that it was Friday and the last day of the work week, when I woke up, today. I felt very tired, but went to the office, anyway, and spent a productive day.
On the way home after work, I stopped at the pharmacy to ask about another of my medications. It had been authorized, but the pharmacy didn't have it ready yesterday. When I went in today, I was told it would take 10 minutes, so I waited. And I waited. After about 30 minutes, I went up to the counter to ask what was taking so long and I was told the paperwork needed to be checked by the head pharmacist who had gone on his break or something, and that it would take another 30 minutes. So, I waited some more. Fortunately, it was nicely air conditioned in the pharmacy, there was a chair where I could sit while I waited, and I was able to flip through some of the magazines that were on sale while I waited. It was almost like being in the library! LOL.
Finally, after almost 45 minutes, I asked the pharmacy clerk about the status and was told it was ready, she had been trying to call me. I do know that she had been serving, by herself, an almost endless line of clients picking up their medications during the entire time I was waiting. I fully believe that she didn't have a minute to page me to say my medication was ready. It really wasn't her fault, but I wasn't feeling very happy about it. But, finally, I received my medication! The whole thing took almost 2 hours! Ridiculous!
While I was waiting, I remembered I had a $2 store coupon, so I picked up a box of cheese crackers. Regular price was $3.29, on sale this week for $1.99 and free to me with my store coupon.

I was tired when I got home. I had a cup of tea, ate some of the cheese crackers, and called one of my friends to wish her for her birthday and spoke with my aunt who called to check on me. The rest of the evening was spent responding to blog comments, replying to a friend's email, watching some TV, and video chatting with my daughter.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A productive day at the office
- A free box of crackers
- Enjoying the air conditioning at the pharmacy while I waited for my medication
- Being able to flip through some magazines while I waited!
- Getting my medication
Plans for the weekend include possibly getting together with my friend for her birthday, doing some much needed housework and some cooking.
How was your Friday? What are your plans for the weekend?
