It started out with me trying to make an appointment to the Base Hospital for my annual pap and my IUD is also scheduled to be removed. I got the run around, I sat on the phone for 30 minutes with Tricare and then this panel and that panel and whatnot. At some point in the conversation I was told that I may have to go to my PCM (primary care manager) to have it done. I'm sorry but WHAT?!?!?!? Really?!?!?! Cause there's no way I'm going to a normal doctor to have him give me a pap or remove anything, that is just ridiculous. By the time I got off the phone with them, I was wishing I was rich so I could board a plane to Idaho and go and get my appointment done there.
As it stands right now, I'm waiting for my PCM's nurse to call me and tell me if she can give me a referral to the OB/GYN clinic on base. Hopefully she can!
Then I realized that with all the run around lately, I still hadn't gotten my driver's licence renewed, so off I go looking for the DMV number to find out exactly what I need to get it renewed here since my licence is from Idaho. AGAIN, 20 minutes on the phone, run around, call this number, call that number. I had everything set to go and Curt was supposed to be home at 2pm so we could go. I still don't know the area around here very well and didn't want to take off with two kids in tow.
While waiting for the time to come I decide to try and get some sewing done, it always relaxes me. Right???? WRONG! I don't know what the heck is wrong with my sewing machine but it sews 2 stitches and then the thread breaks off. I must have rethreaded that thing a dozen times before I finally decided it's best to put it away, it did nothing to relax me, if anything it just frustrated me even more.
But my day wasn't over because I got ready, got the kids ready and sat waiting for Curt to arrive. 2pm came and went, so did 3pm and 4pm....he walked in the door at 4:45pm and the DMV closed at 5pm. YEAH, no going anywhere for us.
By the time I climbed into bed last night I was beat, emotionally, but after some prayer and some reading I finally relaxed just in time to close my eyes and hit the sack. Today is a new day, so here's hoping to less chaos.
I did manage to finish the first book in the Firstborn series, "Fame" by Karen Kingsbury, then quickly picked up #2 "Forgiven" and started it, I'm loving the series and can not wait to see where Dayne and Katy end up. Love Ms Kingsbury, she's an outstanding author, especially if you like Christian Romance.
I'm also keeping an eye out for Netflix, because Season 2 of "Robin Hood" was released today and I have it on my Queue so I'm hoping to get it as soon as possible. I could watch it online at BBC, but I would rather do it while laying in bed with some popcorn.
The kids are enjoying their last few days of summer, there's lots of computer games, watching tv, drawing and coloring and playing around. They're excited for school, Nicholas is so so, one day he's fine and then the next he is telling me that he's going to miss me and doesn't want to go. I've put it in the Lord's hands and I know He'll watch over him.
I think what's bothering me a bit is that usually we have the Meet the Teacher open house at the school a week or two before it starts, this year however they're not doing that until the 21st of August, AFTER school has begun. The problem is that they tore down the old school building and just built a whole new bigger school. I just wish that I could get to meet his teacher before hand, even for him as a kindergartener I think it helps them being able to see their classroom and the teacher first. So I'm hoping the transition from home to a full day of school, will be a smooth one for him.
And I realize I've babbled on for quite a bit today haven't I? Goodness, I'm sorry about the venting, I didn't realize I had so much to complain about LOL But I'm done complaining, I choose to concentrate on the positive side of things, like my birthday coming up on Sunday...... the fact that I've lost 4 lbs this past week YAY!
I did my weigh in yesterday and went down from 142 to 138, I'm thrilled!
So I figure after all the not so happy talk in this post, I would end with happy things, things that make me smile.
