When we last left off, I was burned by the receptionist at my lady biz doctor and was made an appt for Tuesday. So, on the big day, I arrived with a couple of minutes to spare, and sat down to wait. A few minutes passed and they called me back to pay my co-pay. So, I went back there. The woman asked my name and appointment time and I told her and she couldn’t find me on the list. *red flag* So, she just wrote me down and took my $20. I asked her if I came at the wrong time– I am super paranoid about going to the doctor at the wrong time. She told me no that it hadn’t printed off for whatever reason. So I head back to the waiting room. About 15 minutes later, the receptionist called me up there and asked why I was coming in today. I tried to keep my cool, but I am pretty sure my eyes were shooting daggers at that woman while I told my brief story of the crappy receptionist. It was probably her anyway.
So, I head back to my seat with the assumption they were working me in. Once I was the only person left, I was called back. I kinda sorta unloaded on the nurse, but tried to not take it out on her, afterall, it wasn’t her fault. But she told me she was told I called and cancelled my appointment. UMMM WHAT?!!?!?! No, that didn’t happen, at all.
They ended up doing my yearly exam… gotta love a little cervical scrapeage. Dr. F told me that she thought that my problem was an egg popping out of my ovary. Not sure if I believe that or not, since I have NEVER had that happen before. But, a ultrasound wouldn’t have done any good since the fluid is gone now. But, she didn’t feel any cysts or anything on my ovaries, so I opted to not have an ultrasound.
I am still pretty jacked about the front office issues. Not sure what to do. It’s not my doctors or her nurses fault and I was assured by Dr F that I would be seen the day I was in pain if it happens again. She also encouraged me not to skip out my b.c. anymore unless I wanted #3.
So I ask you, virtual friends, what would you do in this situation? Change doctors? I would have to go an hour out of town to see someone in a different group. Change doctors within the group? Write a letter to the office manager? Let it go completely?
In other news, today is my 26th birfday. I am seriously having a HARD time getting older. I started crying the other night thinking about it. I just can’t handle it. I still feel 16 years old sometimes. How am I responsible for 2 children? Aren’t I am irresponsible teenager still?
Sunday night we celebrated my birthday with the McPhillips b/c they are going out of town for two weeks to the beach. Yes, I am jealous. We went to Stix and I had some delicious sushi. Jay, Joseph, and Tracie thought it would HIGHlarious to embarrass me with the people singing to me in Japanese and I was thoroughly embarrassed. Especially since I was standing up talking to them and they burst out laughing. I guess I know what it’s like to have brothers now! John and Linda got some running socks and a an awesomely awesome sports bra. Thanks for looking at the list, MeMac!
Last thought, I am thinking about doing a blog makeover and changing the name… what do you think of Houndstooth and High Heels? Yay or Nay?
I did something drastic.
Something INCREDIABLY drastic.
I cut my already short hair and then dyed it.
Impulses get me every time.
I was inspired by Oofa. Her hair is just gorgeous. I do not think I am in the same league as her, as my cut is a LOT different. But.. it will grow. and I dig the color. A LOT. More than I thought I would. Now… alls I need is some honest opinions. Whatcha thinks?
Now, I want HONEST. Not my sister’s honest. Which is “I Love it! What do YOU think??” Whenever she says that… then I know. It’s hideous. ( Yes, I am onto you, Sarah!) I want to know if you hate it or love it.
P.S. What about the disgusting crows feet I didn’t know I had? Is Botox a bad idea at 25? I’m thinking… Not.
Okay.. I need some opinions. Because I H.A.T.E. making decisions. I found Claire’s Christmas outfit. Isn’t it adorable?!!? I had to snatch it up. I am having trouble with Addison’s though. The shop owner didn’t order the Big Sis matching outfit.. and let’s be honest here, my girls. have. to. match. I feel in lurve with the fabric and I remembered that Addison had been given a shirt a looonngg time ago with the same fabric and I was thinking it was possibly the right size. Well, it’s not. It’s a size 4 instead of a 3. Soo… I can either, take back Claire’s outfit( which, I lurve. Did I mention that?) or I can try to either make the shirt work for Addison and sew some matching green courdoroy pants( which I don’t have the fabric for). What do you think? Since my girlies are red headed, it’s hard to find cute Christmas clothes that aren’t red, that aren’t too dressy and that match.
Maybe I should just stop being so O.C.D about things.
(Yeah… like that’s gonna happen!!)
Okay, peeps… so what should I do?!!?
