7/23 ~ Three

Three.  Three happens to be LESS than the number of trips I took to the pharmacy today.

I went to the eye doctor as I was convinced that my contacts had morphed into evil creatures and were attacking my innocent eyes.  As it turns out, I have an infection in the tear ducts in my eyelids.  The doctor electronically sent in the prescriptions and sent me on my way.   Well, he sent my on my way after checking to see what I had in my wallet and taking it all.  I kid.  Not really but I'm not bitter.  I'm just not digging wearing my glasses right now in the humidity.  One can get used to walking in fog, right?

Trip ONE (to Pharmacy A): "We are sorry but our computer system is down.  It is a corporate problem.  We suggest you get your doctor to call it in to a different place."

I called the eye doctor and relayed the message.  No problem.  They said they would call it right in to Pharmacy B.

Trip TWO (to Pharmacy B): "Thank you for your business!  Here is your prescription.  What?  Only the eye ointment was called in, not the antibiotic.  You need to call your doctor about calling in the other one."

I called the eye doctor.  Again.  And left a message on the answering machine.

Trip THREE (to Pharmacy A after realizing the doctor's office was not calling back today): "Our system is working again!  Thanks for your patience.  Oh, you don't need the ointment now?  No problem."

When I got home, I opened the bag to realize I had another tube of ointment.

Trip FOUR (to Pharmacy A to get the oral antibiotics): "Do you need medical counseling from the pharmacist?  Oh?  You mean you wanted the oral antibiotics.  No problem.  I'll refund the ointment and you now owe $174.83.  You see, I thought that you didn't want to pay that much so that was why I put it back.  Insurance?  It says here that the number is wrong.  Oh, I guess I can type that in again and see if that helps.  And it does!  That will be $20."

And that was how I spent my last day of summer.  Back to work tomorrow!

7/22 ~ Measuring up

I've been taking an online class on phone photography so I can better my skills with the camera that is always with me.  It has fun so far and I've learned several tips and about quite a few apps.  Also, I've learned there are gadgets to go along with the phone that I now want....

7/21 ~ And there was pie

Unless you hide in the closet (and no money back guarantee on that), there will be a little dog watching and staring whilst you eat your food any time you are in my house.  You might think the short dog never gets treats but you would be wrong.  She only eats her dog food when all other options have failed.

7/20 ~ Beat the heat

Slept in and then ran at the gym in the AC.

7/19 ~ Treasure

At the junkyard, I found a little snail shell on a pile of bricks.  The day was actually gray and overcast so I decided to add some sunshine with an app.

7/18 ~ Date night

After spending way too many hours in the garden weeding in the sun, the man and I decided to go out on a date tonight.

He had a scotch.  I had a Moscow Mule.

It was perfectly lovely.

7/17 ~ Learning to iron

Julia learned how to iron today and she was so excited.  It cracked me up to see how carefully she ironed the cloth napkins.  According to her, she is ready to graduate from napkins to whatever.

I think I'll let her practice with the napkins some more before I give her whatever.
