Doctors, bah. Six months ago I scheduled a doctor's appointment for next week and the associated blood draw for this morning. Last night I received a text to sign in for my appointment and make the payment. I did, then remembered that jebra needs to go outside of the practice for his bloodwork. I wondered if signing in was an error on my part or whether my draw was converted to an appointment with the actual doctor. It was an error on my part, compounded by the fact that the office is keeping reduced hours and they weren't even open at my listed appointment time. They aren't even answering their phone until 9 am (my appointment was at 8:40). I will have to get a script for the blood draw but they won't have it ready for me until sometime this afternoon at the earliest. I postponed my actual doctor's appointment for a week since I will need time to go elsewhere to have my blood tested and we'll be out of town starting on Friday. We're heading to northern Michigan to celebrate Labor Day and jebra's 60th birthday.
Prior to this it was just an average week in the time of COVID-19. I went to work, I did laundry, and spent time on my exercise bike. When I wasn't, I was probably knitting. I'm working on my fifth Helix Hat for the Black Sheep Knitting Guild and starting to miss crochet. I missed it so much I picked up the current cat bed (which looks like a coaster since they start at the middle and then work from the center out) and worked on it for a whopping 15 minutes. I think I have enough yarn for two or three more Helix Hats, then I have yarn and another pattern set aside for a different charity hat. Once those are done I'll go back to making cat beds. At least my stock of completed beds has decreased. We took three large bags of them to Michigan Humane yesterday afternoon. I still have two full bags left at work. Meanwhile, I'm wondering why Michigan Humane dropped the "the" and "Society" from their name. I searched their website for an answer but couldn't find one.
In Mom news, she was doing well when I talked to her earlier in the week. And my sister KC is working again and happy to be doing so. She is not a fan of sitting at home and doing nothing.
