Sometimes, some days are meant to be bad. They start off rotten or hard or in fog. Such a start can just set one back in a number of ways. And, one’s commitment to the day is hard to commit to. But when you do make it through such a day, boy does it feel good. I had such a day last week.
I woke up and my sinuses hurt. I woke up and looked at my calendar and knew it was going to be a long day. I also realized I had put off some errands that just needed to be done. And, for better or worse, I was determined that was the day to complete those long-put off errands.
Thus, before the work day started I worked out and had drank two large cups of coffee. That part was my usual. I hurredly got ready and headed out to get my medication refills. There was a slight snag as they had entered my birthdate wrong and thus my insurance wasn’t allowing the refill to be processed. I waited it out and eventually it was filled. Whew!
Then, I went to get an x-ray done that my doctor had ordered two months earlier. I went to the diagnostic imaging center right below the pharmacy and signed in. And, although this was the place affiliated with my medical provider they advised me that they didn’t take my insurance. I had to go three miles away or so. I got into the elevator but I went in the wrong direction. See, I was on the second floor but apparently I had to go up, instead of down, to go to the lobby. Go figure. I eventually made my way off from the second floor. I hit my uber button and headed to the other place for an x-ray.
With x-rays done, I made my way back to where I had previously been and walked over to an early morning community meeting. Then, a slew of urgent phone calls from work. I was starving. I shoved a cookie in my mouth right as a famous person came on in. I ate my cookie quickly and introduced myself to the famous person. Took a photo despite my lack of high heels. I always have heels in my bag and that morning, they were no where to be found. Didn’t look my best but I gave the photograph my all. Then I had to run to work. Whew!
Tackled a number of problems and grabbed some fast food. I ate! That is rare for me. And, laughingly there was a very large diet coke and a teeny diet coke to celebrate.
Then, I finished three documents and answered a number of emails. I rushed back home and vacuumed, dusted, and ran the dishwasher. I felt good. The day had started off ominously but I had accomplished much. Such a feeling is quite euphoric. I was especially impressed that I had persevered in getting my x-ray done. It had been on my to-do list for two months. Many people recommend moving such items off a to-do list after a few weeks since it would appear it was not to be. But, I did it. Can’t always listen to all those life gurus. You do you.
