I've been sick since Friday and missed three days of work so far, and feel like crap. Halfway to work on Friday I felt like the left side of my throat was swelling closed. So I turned around, called into work, and headed to the Dr. in Port St. John. They did a strep test and it came back negative, so they took blood. I had something tonsilitis, and my blood cells showed that a virus was coming, so he wrote me a prescription to help prevent it. After paying $43.99 for the prescription, I get home and have a message on my phone from the pharmacist asking me please to not take the medication, because my Dr. is a moron and didn't actually read my chart and wrote me a prescription for something I'm allergic too. Saturday morning I called the Dr. to talk to him about it and get it straightened out. I was told they would call me back. They called me back 10 minutes before closing to tell me that I never came in. Interesting. They'll call me back. No call. Sunday comes. I call again. "Is it an emergency?" "It will be if I take the prescription he gave me and I have an allergic reaction!" "I am sending out the page to him, he will call you shortly". No call. Good thing I wasn't dying. I called the hospital, and they suggested I call another pharmicist. The second pharmicist says absolutely 100% do not take that prescription. Today I'm furious. I still have no meds and have a full blown virus that could have been prevented if he didn't screw up in the first place. My mom and I go down to see him to get a new prescription and get another Dr.'s note. They tell me I'll have to come back. They'll call me when it's ready. Three hours go by...no call. I call them, and she gets bitchy with me on the phone (surprise, surprise since they did the same crap all weekend). I hang up on her after yelling at her that they've had three hours and this is ridiculous. I've been trying to reach them for 3 days!! 20 minutes later she calls and tells me the prescription is ready and so is my note. I pick up my note, give her the death stare and leave. Needless to say, I'm appalled at the lack of professionalism and care that this particular practice has for their patients. I will definitely be switching Dr.'s a.s.a.p. Now I'm taking my meds, watching a show, and preparing to write my paper that is due tomorrow.

has been ridiculously busy. Saturday I have intestinal problems again. Needless to say I need to get a colonoscopy, but am not looking forward to either the procedure, nor the money that it is going to cost us to do it. Sunday Renee, Lauren and I drove to Tampa to meet up with Ashley for the Britney Spears/Pussycat Dolls concert. It was incredible, despite a long wait, a long drive, and not getting home until 3am. Monday I went to work. Tuesday, David and I drove to Ft. Lauderdale to pick up his toy (a Jeep), and then home to make dinner for my family. Today I had work, as do I tomorrow and Friday. Friday I have a quiz for my cybercrimes course, then Saturday and Sunday David and I will be in Tampa for the Renaissance Faire with some friends of ours. The Tuesday I have my midterm for my sex crimes class. In less than 3 weeks I have a paper due for sex crimes, and in about 5 weeks have a paper due for cybercrimes. I'm getting my butt kicked, but I'm still managing to pull through. In other news, we should be paying off the two motorcycles in a week or so, and I've already got several people lined up to buy them in a month or so, so yay! Those will be gone, and it'll give us a little money, as well as no more monthly payments and crazy interest rates. Yay! Also, in the next month or so, we'll be redoing our master bath, and completely taking out the tub/plumbing that is in there and replacing it with a jacuzzi tub, which I couldn't be happier about. Also, I did the math, and on the 25th will be signing up for the next three semesters of classes. If all goes well as I anticipate it too, then I will be graduating next summer with my masters! :) Also, David and I discussed it, and as of next summer (because I want to graduate first) we will begin trying to start our family!! I'm estatic! :) Yay!

Next week is my midterms. This weekend we're hoping to do more on my grandparents' roof, and Saturday David is going to have Doug and Robert over to play video games. Then Sunday, Renee, Lauren and myself are going to the Britney Spears concert in Tampa. Then the following weekend David and I are going back to Tampa for a Renaissance Festival. Should be fun. :)

Worked on my brother's house again today, and finally got him moved in, which means next weekend if David is not in Ft. Lauderdale picking up the Jeep, we'll most likely be roofing at my grandparents again unless we finish it on Tuesday when we're over there. Now after a long day, we are home again, have taken showers, and now I am doing stuff for school. I just posted one of my two discussions, and got my answers prepared for my web chat that begins in a few minutes, and then after this, I've got a quiz to take. Next week I have my midterm for my sex crimes class. But just thought I'd check in with everyone. :)
