Plans gone awry
Monday, January 16, 2012
What a day! I rolled out of bed, got my poles and started to go outside. It was drizzling steadily, so I opted for a rain poncho and headed for the soccer field. But it was not just a drizzle, it was heavy winds+a drizzle. So, the poncho wound up in my face with the drizzle on my lower body. I made it over to my room and decided to call my grandson on gmail phone. He did not answer, but while I was trying; a friend came in saying that she had planned to walk to the clinic for her ear, but the weather was too bad. So, we both walked back to get my car, and I traded the rain poncho for a jacket and an umbrella (which I couldn't use before since both hands were holding a pole). I drove her to the clinic and waited an hour to take her home. That is really fast for clinics here! I asked if she wanted to go for soup, but she declined. I went for Japanese veggie soup and then did my shopping and stopped back at my room to call my grandson-successful this time. Took my groceries home and saw that I now had an hour to shower and change for my doctor's appointment at the orthopedic clinic. My appointment was for 4 pm, but it takes an hour to get there. Traffic was light, and I arrived 15 minutes early. I was seen at 6:15 pm and left the hospital at 6:45 after paying my bill. Three full hours waiting in a waiting room watching Japanese TV! I was supposed to be at quilting at 7. Fortunately, my friend was not home yet, so I was not late. I got there before she did. Now I am home an hour later than usual. I have a blog to finish, comments to make and at least 10 more minutes of exercise before I finish the dishes. Tomorrow is a new day, and hopefully it goes closer to plans.
