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?
I'm glad your daughter has arrived safe and sound and you managed to get your surgery scheduled for a more suitable time. Try not to do too much now. XReplyDelete
Thank you, Jules. Not planning to do a lot, today. I spoke with the hospital pre-admission office and answered all their questions to update their records. I just want to get a little cleaning done, so I can rest next week. :)Delete
You had a very productive day and yay for Daughter being home! Was she able to take a look at your computer to figure out what's been causing all your trouble with it?ReplyDelete
Nathalie, she took a look at it, last night, but the computer behaved well for her! It still freezes on me, though!Delete
Then it's official: your computer is allergic to you! Do you have too many windows open in your browser, or too many programs open at once, perhaps?Delete
Ha, ha, that's a good one! :DDelete
No, I don't have many windows open at one time - usually two, maybe three, on occasion. It's just being temperamental. Moxilla Firefox was what I was using and it was freezing on me the most. I've now started using Google Chrome, more, and it is better - it still freezes, but not as badly.
Chrome shouldn't freeze, although it's a larger memory hog than Firefox from what I've read. Bless, it sounds to me like you're having a memory issue.Delete
I have some suggestions: 1) Clear your browser's cache and temporary internet files. For Firefox, read this: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-clear-firefox-cache
For Chrome, read this: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/32050?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en
If that doesn't solve the problem, read this Wiki article about how to get your computer running at full speed: https://www.wikihow.com/Get-Your-Computer-Running-at-Full-Speed
Thank you, Nathalie! I have a feeling you are right and I need to clear my browser. I shall read those links you provided and see if I can do that. Thank you for all your help.Delete
I think you should get Nathalie to fly in and help, she sounds like a computer genius. Then she can fly up to my place and fix mine! 😀Delete
Or, I will have to fly out and cook Sri Lankan food for her in exchange for her computer expertise! You can join me, and maybe bring her some of your home produced maple syrup!Delete
Glad to hear your daughter had a good journey and arrived safely. I bet it's lovely to see her isn't it, even under the circumstances. I've just been reading your previous post and I'm so relieved for you that your appointment has been put back to 9.30am. Honestly, I don't think I'd bother going to bed if I needed to be up for 4.30am!ReplyDelete
Do you think you will get on well with your new supervisor? New bosses are always an unknown quantity aren't they. I only ever had one that I didn't like and thankfully he left after a couple of years. The main problem was we would go in every day wondering what mood he was in and it certainly took its toll. Great when he was happy, horrible when he wasn't. I'm shuddering thinking about him. He was one of those toxic people that the books tell you to cut out of your life, but it's not that easy when he's your boss lol. xx
Suzanne, yes, it was good to see her and hold her in person. :) I know, I was telling daughter we'd have to just stay up, all night, in order to get up and get on the road by 5:00 a.m.! LOL.Delete
I used to work with my new supervisor as a colleague, before he promoted and became a supervisor. I got along well enough with him, then; I don't think there will be any problems, now. I don't know his supervisory style, but, I think we'll work together well.
((((((HUGS))))) my friend and I am glad your daughter is home safe and that you were able to get a time slot that works better for you for your surgery. Praying for you!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Debbie. Hope you are feeling better now?Delete
Glad that you were rescheduled to a time that suits you more. Also glad your daughter arrived home with no complications.ReplyDelete
Wishing you much success and little discomfort with the surgery.
Thank you, Anne. :)Delete
Glad your daughter came home ahead of the surgery. Enjoy your time together. More wishes of an easy surgery and all goes exactly as planned.ReplyDelete
Did your daughter decide to continue her lease at the apartment where she is living?
It does sound like a really good location as far as being handy to shops etc.2
Thank you, Sandy. I'm looking forward to spending the week in my daughter's company. :)Delete
Yes, she has decided to continue her lease. She notified the management just before she left to come down, yesterday.
I'm glad your daughter arrived home to your house safe, and so nice she will be with you! Good luck on your surgery! AndreaReplyDelete
Thank you, Andrea. :)Delete
I am praying for a good experience for you tomorrow, a good journey in the morning and surgery to go smoothly with an easy recovery. Enjoy your lovely daughter, she is just what you need at a time like this!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Bushlady. Your prayers are welcome. Just those last few steps up my mountain! :)Delete
