My daily chore list is out of hand.
I have a doctor's appointment at 11:30AM. Last time I saw him, he gave me orders for blood work to check on my blood pressure (was running a bit high for a while). I never got around to going back for the work, but decided since I'd be there this morning, we could take that out around the appointment.
Thing is, the orders state no food or beverage after 10 pm the night before. So, I'm up - it's 9:30 AM. I've had no food or even so much as a sip of water (and haven't taken any of my morning meds - I need water for that) and I'm frazzled beyond belief already.
First, I have to drive in the OPPOSITE direction to drop off a box to UPS. Yes, I changed my mind about the shoes and called to exchange the Rimini for the Paris (free shipping both ways, thanks to Zappos.com, but I need to drop the Rimini pair off to be shipped back and my new Naot Paris should be here today - not that I'll be home to get them.... read on).
Then, I have my doctor's appointment about 20 miles down the interstate going West.
After that, I have to drive another hour or so West to go to a custom kitchen cabinet place - probably the only place in WV that carries the "Grass" brand hinges for kitchen cabinets.
The hinge on our lazy susan door broke about 2 and a half weeks ago and ever since then, we've been making phone calls and staring into an open cabinet full of cereal and pasta. It's about to make me insane. I can't stand it if a cabinet is merely hanging ajar...so imagine my distress at a fully UNDOORED cabinet. Not good, my friends, not good.
After this jaunt, I will need to turn the van Eastward, but not to home. Oh no. I stopped by the Car Inspection place yesterday only to be told they had run out of stickers on Saturday and wouldn't have any until today. (For those of you not in WV, we have to get a yearly inspection sticker on our vehicles, which doesn't stop anyone who lives close enough from Ohio to get a PO Box and drive a hunk o junk that wouldn't pass emissions standards for Mexico). The Car Inspection place is supposed to check the brakes, wipers, engine, etc. and declare your car suitable for the road. Many places just give out the stickers willy-nilly, but others will nit pick and find many "mystery" ailments that need fixed before they will honor you with a sticker.
Best to return to the same place you go every year, so the guys know you, your car, etc. and won't try any funny business.
After Car Inspection, I need to continue Eastward to the Kroger nearest my house to pick up a prescription (damn you, anxiety) and food for dinner, which I will then have to arrive home and start cooking. I also plano on buying a bottle of cheap wine in which to drown out the day. Should be awesome.
And with that, I'm off to put lord knows how many miles on my van (bought three years ago with 46K on it, currently has only 62K -- that's how little I drive).'
Oh, and did I mention I have to bring the cabinet door with me? It's a big old heavy lazy susan door and it's real wood, not particle board. The Evil Twin said it wasn't heavy, so he neglected to load it in my van. So, I dragged it down this morning. Oh, and did I also mention that my best monthly friend came to start her weeklong visit with me last night? Mmmhhhmmm.
I know you're all envious, but really, strive for some self-control.
Gosh, I'm thirsty. :-(
