First about the anniversary...

cooked steaks, wild rice and veggies.. his best friend called (he was the best man at our wedding and also graduated with him) and his congrats did not click in hubby;s mind.

I left him a card on his pillow and he finally came up after midnight.. he opens the card, reads it and then turns and looks at me and says" which anniverasary is this.. the day we met, etc)
Told him it was our 33 rd wedding annivrsary.. he looks at me like no way, this is not June.. he then asked when it was and at this point I said yesterday... i got a comment like Ihave no idea what month it is non the less the date/
he keeps getting undressed and to hide my tears I put my eye drops in. finally I got a peck saying Im sorry at this point he rolled over and went to sleep

.

this morning I went in again to see if they have the in house labs and was told again not yet after 14 days. had another problem and talked to the lab tech who drew my blood and also works for labcorp to find out that in house blood now goes to Boston MA (I am in Greenville SC) and that is what the hold up is.. all this supposedly to save money.. of course now this is causing tons of problems as the schedulers have to call patients who had appts based on their labs being there for review to make their appts a week later.

they are so screwing themselves.. so I learned how to get around this... either go to the hospital or go to the same lab and request all my labs stat as they will go through lab corp them..

I am supposed to call back this afternoon to see if the labs have finally been faxed to them... if not then they will be there tomorrow.

UNACCEPTABLE

typical anniversary for me

Tuesday, June 07, 2011

today is my33 rd wedding anniversary. I maried hubby right after he graduated and we were the first couple from his class to get married.

Of course, in typical male fashion, hubby has forgoten it.. since he changed email addresses he doesnot have his buds to remind him.. oh well...

not saying anything.. just leaving a card on his pillow and calling it a day

how does a lab loose blood

Monday, June 06, 2011

this morning I had to see my nephrologist. before I headed there, needed the labs which showed by kidney function done at my GP"s office on May 26. as of last friday they were not in yet due to a new contractor handling in house

the in house lab tech came out and confirmed, yes they registered the samples BUT now 12 days later, no one knows where they are or if they were ever processed. so now given the option of having all redone (all my thryoids have to be done the same time and we can't split up those already processed with a new sample and do only those missing ones)... suggestions were to
wait two more days to see if they appear
redo them all stat status in the doctors office (takes 3-5 days for stat)
go to the hospital and have them all redrawn.

either way I need to get a new lab slip from my endro and of course he is only in the office thurs and friday of this week. depending on the decision, my doctors appt with the ednro is going to have to be rescheduled for a third time due to all this.

give your suggestions.. what would you do

    You know what . . . I would be on the phone in the lab's office with the tech on the phone. I would be calling the Dr or Drs. office(s) and getting verbal orders to have the labs re-drawn (AT NO CHARGE OF COURSE!!), waiting for them to do the labs right then and there.

AND I would make sure, while I was there, that they faxed the results IMMEDIATELY to whomever needs the labs.

My final act would be to never, ever, ever, ever patronize that lab ever again! And if anyone asked where to get labs drawn, I'd be SURE to tell them not to go to that lab.

So sorry you're going through such nonsense.

some people should not knit

Sunday, June 05, 2011

Yesterday I posted about the lady I was emailing back and forth about how to do the cables on the brim of a hat.

As of today she still does not have it down and we have exchanged over 75 emails. i typed out the pattern for her... all she had to do was follow it and she can't get through the first row of cables... I even recommended she go to knittinghelp.com for how to do a cable and she can't do it
what she is doing is putting 2 stitches on the cable needle after knitting them, putting them back on the cabe needle and holding in the back knitting two from tthe other needle then sliging the ones in the back she already knitting back to the left needle and knitting them a third time


you can only explain to some people seems like 100 times how to do this and perhaps one day the light will click on for a moment.

    I tried to teach my sister how to knit and she still can't get it right even after all these years but she can do a little crochet. There are just some people who will not get it ever. Take care.

    I love to knit, and I love to crochet...and I think your post was hilarious. Seventy-five emails, a few online videos--and she still isn't getting it. It happens like that sometimes. You just get a mental block. Hopefully that lightbulb will go off. Soon. For your sake, I hope it's real soon!!!!

    I was hoping you weren't talking about me... hee hee. I joined a Prayer Shawl Ministry at my church. I can knit, but not the best. The ladies there felt I was good enough, so they taught me a new way to knit... forgot the name, maybe pearling?!!? Anyways, I do three pearls and three knitting. It looks really pretty. I'm slow, but enjoying it!!

You're very kind to help your friend. I hope she gets it soon, for your sake! My Memere taught me and I remembered it... like riding a bike. She also taught me crocheting, but I don't remember how to do that one.

and the weekend starts

Saturday, June 04, 2011

last night I started my fifth sweater for the month but then got hung up on one abbreviation which I had to check how to do this morning.

I was able to pull out the pattern for the afghan i am starting for hubby's old boss's wedding gift (this is the guy who did not want hubby terminated). hope to be starting that this weekend.

On one of my yahoogroups that i moderate, there was a woman who said she is a beginner knitter and has knit a lot of scarves and hats before but was stuck on how to make this one as the cable was coming out wrong.

I logged ito the pattern from lion brand and there were lots of corrections made to it online.. However, when I tried to explain to this woman that there were corrections and what they were she got downright nasty with me telling me that was not what was on her page. After 20 emails, she finally listened and went to the web site but would not accept that one line actually had a line crossed through it in error.

I am tyting to put her conversation together for another group as they would never believe this woman ever knitted before.. one example was directions read repeat rows 7and 8 five times which gets you to row 19 on the hat.

she emails be back and ays.. so this is what I am supposed to do

Row 9. Rep Rows 7 and 8 five times 10 twice.

>>> Row 10. Rep Rows 7 and 8 five times 10 twice.

>>> Row 11. Rep Rows 7 and 8 five times 10 twice.

>>> Row 12. Rep Rows 7 and 8 five times 10 twice.

>>> .

>>> .

>>> .

>>> Row 18. Rep Rows 7 and 8 five times 10 twice\


I guess ths woman has never knitted one row before,

then when I had the nerve to get away from my computer for several hours she has the nerve to email me and tell me that she sees I have given up on her.

I reminded her nicely I do have a life..

    Be there done that when I was teaching a knitting class years ago. I had a student who just didn't understand and I had to show her row by row what to do. So hard to do it over emials when a person doesn't listen. Good luck with the rest of your day. Happy knitting. I am just now getting back to mine.
