When it rains, it pours.....

Well, I spent yesterday recuperating mostly.  Gracie and I had to run to the store to get some fruit and a few other little things.  I didn't do too much for fear of bringing it all back on myself.... and, so far, I'm in the clear on that.  

I did Mel's taxes last night and took them to her today after I dropped G off at school.  She works about 20 minutes away in another town, so I drove there right after I took Grace in.  My left eye felt like it had something in it, so I rubbed it a couple of times but it didn't stop.   

I got stopped at a light and I looked closer in the vanity mirror.  Lo and behold~my eye is blood red, goopy, and starting to itch~holy crap!  WTF?  Is it my week to get invaded or what?!  So, now I have pink eye...  

I already feel like doo-doo that I missed Monday, and now it looks like I may miss tomorrow too.  My plan is to go there in the morning and talk to Mrs. Office Manager/Receptionist.  Their rule for kids is 'on antibiotics for 24 hours' before returning.  I will only have been on mine for about 10 hours by work time.  So, I'm going to let her decide if I stay or go home.   

Oh.... and get this... I called my doctor to see if she would phone in a prescription for pink eye.  The nurse calls me back and says the doc doesn't like to phone in meds for pink eye?!  I'm not asking for narcotics!  Gees....  So, she tells me to go to the Emergency Room!  It's pink eye, not an emergent situation~and I do not abuse ER's.  I told her that, too.  She said the earliest they can get me in the office is tomorrow at 3:45.....  

Luckily, Mom came through yet again!  There are advantages to a medical professional in the family :)  Though the docs she works with probably think her family is falling apart this week....

Hopefully <knock on wood> it ends here and now.   

And to top all of this off~I get a call from my bank informing me I'm overdrawn $60.00  :(    Seems I forgot, misplaced, or whatever a receipt from a debit card purchase.  I'm such a dumbass sometimes. 

I made a hasty call to Johnny, who still owed me for his taxes, for a collection of fees.  He was on his way to work, but close by~and he saved my stupid butt from incurring more charges.    I cut up that damn card, too..... can't do it if I don't have it  :)  

I have changed my music here, once again.  The last of my 'cry in my beer' tunes for awhile, I hope.  Just the mood I've been in lately.  But I love this one, too ~ so load my main J~page to hear for yourselves.....

Have a great evening J~Land   :)

Pink eye sounds nasty, I hope that clears up soon!
Good idea to let your office manager decide whether to send you home or not, hope she sends you home :o)
