Two quotes from the day:

Patient #1: "Well you don't look like the doctor. I was told I had an appointment with the doctor. And you're not her. The D-O-C-T-O-R (he spells it for me). Do you know who she is?"
Me: "Well it's your lucky day because you get to see me and the doctor today. She'll be in a little later."
The visit continues. . . .
As I'm leaving the room, Me: "Well the D-O-C-T-O-R will be right in to see you."
He smiled at me. He's ornery and he knows it. He gave me a hug before he left.

It's all in your perspective.

Patient #2, as I'm looking in her ears: "Can you see my sinuses in there?"
Me: "No, only your ears."

Maybe this happy ending doesn't include a wonderful guy.
Maybe it's you, on your own, picking up the pieces and starting over.
Freeing yourself up for something better in the future.
Maybe this happy ending is just moving on.
Or maybe the happy ending is this:
Knowing that through all the unreturned phone calls and broken hearts,
Through all the blunders and missed signals,
Through all the pain and embarrassment,
You never, ever, gave up hope.
He's Just Not That Into You

with or without you


It's one alphabetical symbol and one numeric symbol. That's what the Tulsa World said. I say it was one of the top 10 best nights of my life!! I'm sure the next few posts will be about the concert. It was GREAT. If you get a chance to go see them, DO IT!!!! You won't be sorry you did.

the house

Is STILL on the market.

Here's the situ:
Two weekend ago, I was like, forget it, it'll never sell. I'm taking the dogs back. So I did. Went to B'ville--got the dogs, and all their gear, and came home.
Next day, I get a call from a realtor who wants to show the house between 4 and 5pm.
WHAAAA??? I'm 30min away at work and its 1:15pm.
Thank heavens the schedule was light and I drove frantically home. Got there in time. Picked up all the laundry that was 'air drying' on the guest bed--threw them in the car. Threw the rest of the dirty laundry in the car. Carried dirty dishes and stacked them on top of the clean dishes in the dishwasher. (Classy, I know) Grabbed the dogs and got in the car.
Since I'd left work in such a rush, we headed to McDonalds because I'd seen that they have WiFi. Uh, that you have to pay $3 for 24hrs of usage.
So, classy lady and her two dogs, dirty laundry, some clean laundry, are sitting in the parking lots of McDonalds so I can work on my laptop.
Be Jealous, be very jealous.

Get home--they haven't come by. So 20min after 5, they show up. So out the door with the dogs on a leash. About 15 min later come home and can't get in the garage door because it's locked. So I have to call my realtor to call the other realtor to come back and let me in.
All that--and no stinking contract.

2 more lookers after that and no contract.

Today? Open house and no one came.

I'm getting frustrated. But:
1. My pantry is clean, vacuumed and I found some thermoses I'd forgotten about.
2. I now know how long it takes to clean a house: 10min when you can throw stuff in a car.
3. There are variations on 'clean'
3. My closet is very well organized and color coordinated.

It's hard to wait on God's timing. So here's praying I let God take back control. . . .

Oh, and 1 week from tonight? U2!!! I'm so pumped!!!!

where I've been

Sorry--the H1N1 has hit. My hog farmer family members ask that I not call it 'Swine Flu' since it hurts their business. I'm seeing about 5-10 patients a day with it. And Doc was out for a week with it. I'm just now catching up from being busy, ok overwhelmed. I do enjoy being busy and not surfing the net though--now that they've blocked facebook at work.

And the fall is always bad on my mood. . . so I've been eating a lot of oreos, double stuffed. And sleeping.

And patients are really getting on my nerves. The crazies have been out for weeks. Let me just tell you, a please and a grateful attitude really go a long way--much farther than yelling, cussing and complaining. Just so you know.

And no one has come to look at my house in 5 weeks. So I brought the dogs home on Saturday-Mom & Dad have been caring for them since August. I've had 2 lookers since Saturday. Once with laundry drying in the spare bedroom. So I've rushed home to get the dogs and throw underwear in the closet. I just hope I can find them again. And hope that my house sells quickly.

And I'm single and turning 32 quickly.

And with all the steroids over the summer, I'm fat.

See where I'm going. I'm irritable. And need a REALLY long vacation. That's why I haven't posted. But there you go. That's where I am. Being aware there is a problem is always step 1, right?
