I'm giving my legs an alcohol rubdown...from the inside (bottoms up!). Recovering from switching out my summer curtains to the winter ones. I did a complete switch in the living room, washing the window while I was there, then cleaning off the window seat and setting up a little window scene for Christmas. I still have to hang the family room curtains, but I got those danged things, complete with a very long ruffled edge, all pressed nice and crisp. While I had the iron and board out, I also ironed two valances that will go in windows in a few months. That, plus two dinners, and I'm all tuckered out.

I am tuckered out just reading about it. Good grief girl. Where did all that energy come from.

I have a slew of appointments between now and the middle of January. On one day I have two appointments. I hate when that happens. It saps me of all my energy. One time I had three appointments in one day. When I got home, I was so tired that I started crying. I will never make that mistake again. That was really a stressful day for me.

I use 4" X 6" index cards for each of my medications. I write down the name, size(mg), purpose, the current Rx#, and number of refills remaining.

When I'm renewing prescriptions (by automated phone), I put those cards in my purse so if a Rx is missing when I go to pick them up, I can tell which one is missing.

I update my cards from the actual Rx label.

I also take all of the cards with me when I visit the Dr., so we can discuss each one and make changes if necessary and renew the Rx as needed.

I made a one-page Word document with my medical information. Front side has my name, phone number and birth date, doctors' names and contact info, and DH's name and contact information. Below that is a table listing each med, Rx and OTC, dosage and frequency, and what it's for.

Back side has a brief medical history that lists diagnoses with year diagnosed and surgery dates and locations and what it was for. DH also has a copy. I keep a copy in my purse and take an updated copy with me to all medical appointments and hospitalizations. It's saved me a lot of time and aggravation.

So I never made it to my appointment with my cardio doctor. This time it wasn't my fault. I intend to file a former complaint. They really need to work on their communication skills.
Since this has happened before, it might be a good idea to check with the front desk the day before and make sure your transportation has been arranged.

After pitching a fit this morning, Winthrop managed to get me in today. So I am all dressed and will leave in an hour. I even called Cataldo to make sure they had gotten a call from Winthrop and had me listed for a pickup. But you are right. I am going to have to do my own follow-ups. Now when I leave the doctor's office, they will give me a new appointment in six months for a follow-up. I will come home with it and phone it in to Winthrop. Then I will also enter it into my calendar on the 'puter and a reminder for the computer to me to call Winthrop the day before. I will also make sure I mark down who I talked to.

Just mixed up 6 batches of cookie dough. I'm taking it easy this year and doing all of my best drop cookies instead of decorated, dipped and fussy cookies. People love these cookies.

This is a great time of year to have temporary custody of my mother's Kitchen Aid mixer, made things a lot quicker!

Looks like you had a double exposure.

It's almost 8PM - going to pour a glass of wine, settle myself and kitty in the recliner, and watch "The Hundred Foot Journey" for the first time.
