Sorry this post is so late in the day. All I have to say about that is ARRRRRRRGH. It has been SUCH a day today I can’t even tell you. First, J didn’t sleep last night. At all. Well, that’s not true, but he did cry from about 6 until he passed out around 9:30. And did I say cry? I meant scream. Or wail. Or maybe shriek. He was… unhappy.
So today I called Dr. Bob and set up an appointment for Husband (who is still on FMLA… for laryngitis) to take J to the doctor just to make sure this is teething and not the ears again. I would have taken him myself but I was supposed to meet with a witness for an upcoming trial (not next week’s trial) out of town. Supposed to was the key word in that sentence.
I drove the thirty minutes to the podunk town where this guy works. I called his cell phone when I got there, as requested. He didn’t answer so I left a message with my cell number and asked him to call me back. I waited. I waited some more. And yep… waited. After thirty minutes, I called again and politely left a message saying that I had tried to keep our appointment but “perhaps” I had written down the wrong day. I then drove back to the office. And oh yeah, for my trouble? I got doughnuts. Cause I needed them. And because the Hot Doughnuts Now sign was lit up at Krispy Kreme. (That thing is the devil.)
I got back to the office and was here about thirty minutes when my phone rang. It was the cleaning ladies. Husband had gone to take J to the doctor and had not left a key for them to get in the house. I had to leave again to let them in… and put the dog up. *sigh* Then Husband called to tell me the doctor had seen J. His ears are bad. Again. If they’re still bad the next time we bring him in, we’re looking at tubes.
And oh yeah, bonus? We have to take J for a chest x-ray this afternoon because Dr. Bob wants to rule out respiratory infections. Fun times. When, oh when, will I adequately prepare for trial???
Bonus? I got a sample dress from the good folks at http://www.eshakti.com/. It’s fabulous and I’m going to review it for you soon with lots of fun pictures. But until then, I’m going to “tease” with one hysterical picture that makes me look like a “real” lawyer. It also makes me look older than I am, I think. And sidenote? I don’t wear glasses. I borrowed those from the receptionist. And that book? I don’t know what it says. But check out the cute dress… more on that later.
