On Wednesday, I called the surgeon's office in the morning to ask that the surgery be scheduled for the 9:30 a.m. time slot. The lady I spoke with said she had already moved me to the earlier time slot, but when I explained that I'll have to leave the house at 5:00 a.m. to get there by 6:00 a.m., she agreed that that would be a very early start to the day. She put me on hold while she called the hospital to reschedule and I was moved to the 9:30 a.m. slot, again! So, I need to be at the hospital by 7:30 a.m. I also need to call the hospital's pre-admission office, tomorrow morning, to confirm.
After that, I went to the office and had a fairly productive day. I met with my new supervisor and gave him a list of all the projects I am working on and their status. Then, I informed him that I will be out of the office all of next week. In the afternoon, I spent a little time tidying up my desk.
The pharmacy had texted me saying my inhaler was ready for pick up, so, I went there on my way home and collected my inhaler. Then, came home and rested a bit in front of the heater. Just until the house warmed up a bit. After that, I wiped down the stove top and kitchen counters, changed the chair covers on the family room sofas, and tidied the room a bit (mostly a matter of tidying the stacks of paper - someone really needs to sit down and do her paperwork and filing!) Took out the trash and recycling, too.
Then, it was time to go to pick up daughter at the airport. She had a safe flight home and we picked up some Chinese food for her dinner on our way home.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Daughter had a safe flight home
- Getting the surgery time rescheduled to a more reasonable time
- Pleasant staff at the surgeon's office
- Being able to take time off for the surgery
- Well wishes from people I work with
I am not going to make a to do list for tomorrow, but I do hope to get the house vacuumed. And I need to water the indoor plants, since I didn't do it today.
How was your Wednesday? What are your plans for Thursday?
