Can I get some patience over here?

I am telling you right now, I need some patience!!! I had to go to the doctor today for what I thought was a blood pressure check. I dropped Dh at school for his one class and I had planned on running to Target after my so called BP check to leisurely walk the aisles till Dh's class was over!! Never happened!!!!!!

When I got to the doctor's office I should have known that there would be trouble when they looked at me with a puzzled expression and told me to have a seat. I sat, and sat, and sat, and sat, and sat some more. Finally, 1 hour after I signed in to have that BP check they came to the conclusion that I needed to have blood drawn. 5 minutes after that deduction I was out the door in just enough time to pick up Dh!!

Bummer!!! I was so looking forward to that little time to shop in peace. I was so worked up by the time hubby got in the car that I was just a bit snippy. Mainly because he asked all the wrong questions ~ How was it at the doctor's office? My reply "Don't ask!!" His ?~ " Did you get to go to Target?" My reply "I don't want to talk about it!" No patience today. Maybe I will conquer that tomorrow. Remember, people, work in progress!!

Now I am going to go eat some ice cream. Maybe that will help me have patience. Probably not but it tastes good!!!!

Wow! I think you do have patience! No way would I sit waiting for an hour! I am famous for giving them 15 minutes, then I make them reschedule me- my time is valuable as well! At our Dr if you are over 15 min late they make you reschedule, so I figure it's fair play!

The same thing happened to me this week. I went in to drop off my BP sheet and request an appt. But, the Dr said he wanted to see me then. Jd was off and waiting outside for me, so I had to go tell him to run a couple errands w/o me and to come pick me up when he was done. Then my two little Sg's had to come along too! No wonder my BP was 160/100!
