No core tonight after all due to a visitor I had forgotten about.
Some mixed progress on the "Valerie is a doormat" front. I had a follow up with the orthopedic guy today about my hands. Appt time is 3:50, though I was originally told 3:40. At 4:20, a guy comes out and announces that the doctor is behind. The 3:10 lady is still sitting there, and she is to be called up second. So, with the time waiting for the doctor after you are called back, it was estimated that I would actually be seen at ~5:30-6:00. Though I understand that doctors run behind, waiting almost 2 hours to be seen is not acceptable. Unacceptable, but do I walk out? Yes, I decide I can. I let the receptionist know that I am leaving, but at the same time I tell her she can charge me (which they aren't). So, points earned and lost in the same encounter. And, now, will I get myself together enough to make an appointment with another doctor or not?
New roof a couple of weeks ago. While home at lunch time that day, I observed one of the guys standing in the gutter to support himself, thus bowing the gutter out. Not just in one place, but down the entire length of the gutter. It is pushed back in when I return, but the line of the gutter is not the same. I write the company with my concern, but I make the mistake of mentioning that a gutter nail is loose as well. They send a supervisor out and fix the gutter nail, but they don't address the bent gutter. Do I let it slide, replace the gutter myself, or do I make additional contact? Of course, I know the answer, but will I do what I should do? We shall see...
