Just another manic Wednesday

So... the verdict is in-I'm sick, sicker than a dog actually. I was supposed to go to the doctor's office, get magic pills, go into work to pick up work computer and come home. No! In typical Knittinchick fashion, I had to make it more dramatic. Here's the manic Wednesday rundown:

  • Knittinchick sleeps through the night-cause for celebration.
  • Wakes up around 7:00 in case the walk-in clinic is open at 8:00. Turns out to be 9:00 but no problem, just go back to sleep.
  • She gets to the clinic at 9:05 and there are 20 people in front of her-who knew 5 minutes could be so important?
  • She stares down the dirty men who are reading a Maxim magazine that someone left on the table-there are children here folks! Seriously, one guy was reading it for so long, there could have been a hole right in his head.
  • The nurse calls her into the examining room and turns out-Knittinchick is known to her. She pours out her woes all the while Knittinchick is trying to place her. She asks Knittinchick to call her daughter but Knittinchick gives her a business card so the daughter can call her... aka-vague remembrances of daughter but not too clear
  • Doctor says you won't be speaking at work this weekend. Rest, a couple of drugs for the pain, not much but time can help-does swab for strep.
  • Knittinchick goes into work and leaves her purse in the car as she'll only be a minute.
  • After talking to boss and a couple others (who keep their distance and make sure that she hasn't touched any doorknobs-no hard feelings), she gets ready to leave... only to discover that she followed her protocol of always putting her keys in her purse before leaving her car.
  • $100ish later-there is a new AMA membership, a lockout on its way and a couple of on-the-fly meetings re: people covering for Knittinchick.
  • AMA delivers and shows up in 25 vs. the told 60 minutes.
  • Knittinchick heads to Superstore to get prescriptions filled and hits an amazing sale of kids' clothes as she's heading into Superstore. Amazing! All is fine with the acquisition of cheap baby gifts and snow pants for Momofthecrazies' Pink crazed girls for $2.94 each.

If only every day ended with a fabulous sale like that.

What a day! You know that i am praying that you will get better REAL soon and in the meanwhile don't exert yourself...that is unless there is another fabulous sale like the one you hit on kids clothes. i know from experience that REALLY GOOD sales like the one you got in on, do have huge medicinal value.
Would love to deliver some homemade chicken noodle soup, knittinchick! Too bad we live so far apart! Love you!

Knittinchick, you are it! Even that bargainista girl can't beat your bargain scooping while feeling sicker than a dog, or cat or even a guinea pig. And don't worry about locking your keys in the car any time soon. There's a 99.9% chance that you won't don't it again until April 10th 2009. Take care of yourself as a favor to all of us who love you and your musings.

So sad to hear you're not feeling well and that you can't speak this weekend.

You and your mom have quite the ability to find sales! You'll have to take me shopping. Thanks for finding the snowpants!!

I hope you start feeling better soon. Love you!!
