Fill- Ins and more random crap

It’s that day of the week and the only other thing I have is a wild rant which will involve swearing.

1. Why does the whole time change thing have to happen?

2. If I were on the space station, I could see the world.

3. Thank you for not pissing me off yet today.

4. Halloween is my favorite holiday because it’s fun to decorate for, spooky movies are awesome and there’s no family drama.

5. I am SO over it.

6. He just needs to make up our minds to be.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to an early night, tomorrow my plans include helping my  mom move and Sunday, I want have to finish the move!

Warning! Explicit language ahead.

I have had it up to here with doctors.  I had some abnormal results come back on a blood test, so House asked that my PCP repeat the test.  It only took me a day of fighting with the ass bucket (the PCP)  to get it. I asked if they would work with House and was told “within reason”.  So they do the test, it still comes out wacky and I ask what’s next.  I was told “we don’t treat numbers, we treat people”, so nothing further.

I give the results to House and was told to see the PCP for an abnormal result work up… which isn’t going to happen because “they don’t treat numbers”.  I asked House (well his new inefficient assistant who is definitely no Sex Kitten) for help with my PCP given their attitude.  I explained exactly what was said.  I was thinking House could either order labs or communicate with them as to why this is important.  The response?  In my opinion sucked goat gonads.

There no other labs we are requesting. This is something that your PCP can evaluate your for or send you to a hematologist if necessary. We found an abnormal lab on routine bloodwork and we have alerted you and your PCP to further evaluate the abnormality.
All we ask is that you or your PCP keep us updated.

Ummm. Great. So House doesn’t want to step on someone else’s toes and Dr. “I got stuck in some freakin back water town doing family medicine instead of still being in a big city E.R. just because I had an unfortunate life event” doesn’t treat numbers.

I am so flipping angry right now because it seems like no one wants to do anything.  This blood work stuff could mean I need to come off my “keep you from going blind and being paralyzed” med for a little or, it could indicate I’m experiencing one of the very yucky side effects from the same med.

I mean, it’s partially my fault.  I should have switched family doctors the time Texas had to get staples in his head and when it came time to remove them, the didn’t have a kit to do it, so the lady tried a staple remover… as in the kind you find in offices.  She ended up wiggling them out with forceps.  Yeah.  Great doctor’s office.  Besides, I hate the hospital that they’re affiliated with so much I’ve said if the choice is dying or going there, let me die.

So, now I’m just hanging out.  Waiting.  The other office in the area is affiliated with the other major hospital in Tyler.  They are doing everything they can to get me on the schedule.  I can’t be put in as a sick appointment because I’m not an established patient, but the lady and her boss were wonderful.  And she recognized that I was one step from losing it and said she would fax the records request form instead of me taking it over.

*end rant*

Happy Friday bitches!

Hey Cheryl! Look! Another post!

Because it took me all week to respond to the 3 comments I got on the last one.  O.o


after 24 hours of rain

We’ve had snakes, plague (ask Skinny PC about the flies), locusts, frogs and 12 inches of rain in 24 hours.  I’m building an ark.  Seriously.

We even have lightening bugs this year.  This will be my unofficial 3rd summer here in TX (remember, I came to visit and never really left) and it’s the first time I’ve seen them.  Skinny PC says it’s been a loooooong time.

Now, if someone could please tell me what I did with my cell phone and the cord to download pictures off of it, I could show you how the boat was up on the dock steps this morning.

However, I can show you this!  The difference in the lake level between last night and today. See how you could see under the dock yesterday?

lake today


I figure we have 2 more days of runoff filling the lake.  I’m also guessing that the dock is going to be under water tonight or tomorrow if this keeps up.  The neighbor’s already is.

Even more exciting is that the hill we live on is going to end up “in” the lake.


That’s about an inch of sand that was stopped by a hose.  I think it’s from the driveway.  The sand, not the picture.

heater cat

You get heater cat.  I took some pictures of buds and SPRING! and fun stuff, but my crappy camera (even with the closeup stuff) made it all ugly.  I totaly need one of those SLR’s for my birthday.  If only I hadn’t put that gun on layaway, I’d totally go buy one.

Plus, the Magsters is kind of limpy this morning.  I don’t know why.  I’m about to call the vet except that she’s sleeping and I don’t want to traumatize her by putting her in her carrier.

Now, for some Friday Fill-Ins:

2. I want you to take me to places I’ve never been.
3. When all the nuts get shaken from the tree, then it will be on my terms.

Happy Friday y’all!

*Everyone, please remember to point him towards our Nora and her status as the exexutor of the yarn stash – if there’s glitter in it, Carrie gets it, Bev gets the Wollmeise and Joan and Cookie can fight over the fiber and wheels, Angie has a choice between yarn and weapons – all of course after Nora gets her 25% fee.  😀
