Single people have to anticipate problems.
If you are totally on your own, you can’t send someone to run important errands for you or expect comfort food brought to you on a tray. You’ve got to look out for yourself. I’ve learned to keep the pantry stocked with chicken soup, Gatorade, and ginger ale.
You learn to be prepared.
That in mind, I got on the phone with Ashley at the dermatologist’s office. I asked her to have the antibiotic prescription phoned in to my pharmacy. I also asked her to list the supplies I will need after the surgery on Friday. She cheerfully obliged. Why wait until afterwards to go to the pharmacy and grocery? What a pain when you’re not feeling well. Plus think of all the little children who won’t be traumatized by my post-surgery face.
I joined Good Sam Club today.
I used a “special offer” that came in the mail — $23 for two years. I’m not interested in most of the benefits of membership. I joined in order to obtain their roadside assistance. Readers of this blog convinced me it is an excellent service. They change flat tires, bring gas, give you a tow, open the door when you lock your key inside, give you a jump start, and lots of other good stuff. It’s reasonable at $79.95 for one year. I may have offended the nice lady on the phone with my typical bluntness. I told her I heard that Good Sam sends a lot of stuff in the mail and would she please make sure I don’t get all that. She quickly pointed out “They ALL send a lot of stuff.” Yep, she was miffed. But she agreed, no solicitations, and resumed her friendly, professional tone.
Today was the kind of day that got away from me.
I don’t know where the time went. I hate it when that happens! I think it’s this unrelenting heat and knowing I have to face MOHS on Friday. I appreciate the commenters who commiserated with me. Thank you!
