Yesterday was my 40th birthday, and it was a great day! The only thing that would have made it better would have been if I wasn't battling bronchitis and feeling near death! And yes...I am the world's worst sick person and slightly dramatic!
At first I was dreading having to say, "I'm 40." However, the day before my birthday, I decided that I kind of like who I am right now. I like the woman I've grown to be, the family I have, the marriage I love, the kids I nurture, the job I love and the wrinkles I've gained! Forty is rather freeing!
After school came the feisty part of my day where I went to my eye doctor appointment at 3:15. After waiting a little over half an hour to be called back, the technician did the initial air puff test and reading the ABC chart. Then she led me to a second waiting room and told me to wait until a room opened up.
The second waiting area had about 15 people in it! I immediately asked if this was going to be a long wait. Long story short, the technician went to find out how long this would take, and she came back to tell me that they were an hour and a half behind schedule! Oh, heck no!
I told them that was "unacceptable" and "unprofessional" and said I would not be able to stay that long due to needing to pick up the kids from daycare. I am so irritated because this is the second time I've rescheduled this appointment. I made another appointment at a different office of theirs that is hopefully not as impacted as this one. We'll see.
I was proud of voicing my opinion. A lot of times I sit and bear it rather than let my displeasure be known. I told them my time was valuable and I would not be sitting for an hour and a half past my appointment time.
Once Eric got home, we loaded up and headed to my favorite restaurant...Japanese Kitchen. The kids entertain themselves while waiting to be seated.
It was a great start to my fourth decade. I am so blessed to be surrounded by family and friends who bring joy to my life.
