About that Appointment...Didn't Happen

When I talked to the receptionist at the doctor's office last week she told me my appointment was on Tuesday, June 10th at 1:30pm.  I even had her confirm it again before I hung up to make sure I had the time correct.  Well, on Saturday I got a bunch of paperwork in the mail that I needed to fill out before my appointment.  One of the papers had my appointment information on it and it said my appointment time was 10:00am.  Nice.  I called yesterday in the morning to find out which time was correct.  It was the 10am time.  I'm not sure what the lady I talked to was smoking, but she should quit.  It's affecting her job performance.  Anyway, I stayed late on Monday and got everything squared away at work before I left because I wouldn't be there till the afternoon today.  Then I got home and received a phone call from the doctor's office.  It turns out my doctor was stuck out of town and wouldn't be in the office today.  Just my luck!  It's just one thing after another.  The receptionist then gave me a choice.  She said I could either reschedule my appointment for next Wednesday or get an appointment on Friday afternoon if I go to their other office in North Richland Hills.  For those who don't know where that is, its an extra 20 minute drive for me.  Neither of those options sounded good, but I took the Friday appointment.  I've been really anxious about this appointment anyway and I just want to have it as soon as possible, even if it means an extra drive.  So, my new appointment is this Friday at 1:30pm.  Hopefully it sticks this time.

In other news, I just found out that one of my coworkers is pregnant.  In my entire career with my company there has always been someone pregnant.  Well, we were beginning to wonder who was next because the current pregnant person is in labor as we speak.  I am very happy for my coworker because they have been trying for a while.  It will be her 2nd baby.  She told me she was afraid to tell me because she thought I would be upset.  I understand why she would think that, but I'm not upset at all.  I'm very happy for her!  I did get a bit upset last time someone told me they were pregnant though.  A former coworker came back to visit and told me she was pregnant.  It did hurt, but only because it was an accident and she and her boyfriend weren't even sure they wanted it at first.  Those situations bother me.  Happy couples who want a baby don't bother me at all.  I say yay for them!
