Hello, Porch Peeps,
Where is everyone? I know I haven’t been here for a few days, but it looks like no one else has been either. Hoping it’s because everyone is busy doing some exciting stuff.
Not much exciting going on around here other than construction…which is pretty exciting to me. Right now Stepson is working away and all the windows are open so I’m freezing. LOL
Other than that, a friend and I went out for Chinese on Friday. This week is pretty busy though. Doc appointment yesterday, glasses adjusted today, lunch out tomorrow, dentist on Thursday, and breakfast out on Saturday. Now that you know my schedule, who really cares? HA! I’ve always said I don’t do social media because I really don’t care if so and so is cleaning out their frig or making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, etc. 🤣
But on the subject of doctor appointments…Does anyone else feel like they are getting the “bum’s rush” when they visit their primary? I feel like an old fogey (surprise! I am!) when I say my doc who retired always seemed to take the time to go over everything, and it was a rather relaxing visit, getting the necessary done, but also taking the time to talk about other things. Yesterday, I felt like this new doc was talking a mile a minute, and I had like the old “TV 5 second delay.” If I didn’t answer right away, she’d ask again. Then, she turned the computer so I could see, and like a tech wizard, she went over all the millions of things that were on the screen. I couldn’t move my eyes that fast! I was supposed to have my annual wellness check, too, and instead of all the fun, quiz-like questions… like subtracting by 7’s from 100, and pointing out which shape was a square, etc, she just had me draw the clock, and remember only 3 words, not 5. I’m certainly glad she didn’t think I had dementia, but I used to kind of enjoy all those questions…it was like feeling smart when you watch Jeopardy! Oh, well. So then I got my flu shot and that was it. Was sent on my way with a prescription for the next bloodwork and a stapled copy of the summary of the visit. Not sure how that was visit summary was accomplished so fast, but there it was.
Covid booster coming up next week for me.
Hoping you all are doing well!
Time for another cup...
