i'm very mad.
today, i was supposed to go to the hospital and do the stupid 3-hour glucose tolerance test. garrick had to work, and this was the only free saturday between the last midwife appointment and the next.. and the test is to be done between 24 and 28 weeks. so anyway.. i knew the lab opened at 8, so i got up early to shower and whatnot (cuz we have a busy afternoon planned and i wouldn't have any other opportunity to get ready). oh, and i forgot to mention that this test also requires you to fast for 12 hours. i do not do well without food on a regular day, let alone when i have this little being inside me stealing all my nutrients. i got ready and left the house to be there before 8.
and it's of course raining again, which never helps anything.
i get there (think "wow, there's only 3 cars here! sweet, i won't have to wait long!"), park, go pay for parking (which is specific to whatever stall number you're in), then..... crap. realize that i didn't bring the requisite papers for the tests!!!!! #$@%#^&*. i just shelled out $4 for parking, only to not even be able to use my stall!
i go all the way home (okay.. home's only like, 5 minutes away. but still) and get the papers, and go all the way back. at least point, i cheered up a bit, because my stall was still free! lucky number 13.. maybe no one else wanted to park in 13. lucky me!!! i run to the doors and inside.. and get to the waiting room for the lab.. and.. no one is there. then i see the sign on the door to the lab. "June 9, 2012. Closed due to staff shortages. Sorry for the inconvenience". Do you not think this would have been a good thing to post somewhere BEFORE people paid for their parking?!?!?!?!?!? AHHHHHHHHH soooooo frustrating!!!!!
so. in order to get this done before my next midwife appointment (in a week and a half), work is just going to have to suck it up, and be without me for half a day.
