Typical Monday Morning...

...at the doctors. Sorry I'm late...again. If you knew me you'd know I'm NEVER late. I hate being late. I'd rather miss the whole thing than be late. And it's my pet peeve at work, when you go to a meeting and people walk in late and don't think a thing about it. They don't even apologize for holding everyone up.

Are you like that? Some people go through life at one speed...slow. Not that that's a bad thing. But I've always been the kind of person running at a hundred miles a minute, people have to literally run to keep up with me. If you saw my round little body you'd laugh and say, I don't believe it. It's true I swear!

One day a co-worker and I were going to a meeting and I felt like we were horses in a race, nose to nose. We kept picking up speed and finally I said to her, why are you walking so fast? She said, to keep up with you! And here I was just trying to keep up with her:)

Yes, I tend to do everything fast. Hubby is always saying, slow down, take your time, you're huffing and puffing. I just glare at him. He's retired and can afford to slow down, take his time in everything he does. Since I work a full time job and take care of the house chores, etc., I want to get them done with the thought in mind that the faster I do it, the more free time I have to sit around and relax. Or work on a new book.

Am I wrong for feeling that way? Maybe I don't take the time to smell the roses, but I only have one speed and it's fast. I don't exercise so maybe it counts as exercise. Yes, that's it! The next time I see my doctor and she asks me that dreaded question, do you exercise, I can say yes. I move fast. Surely that burns up calories.

Unfortunately they're not FAT calories:)

Hope things went okay at the doctors. My hubby was in the hospital this weekend and sees orthopedic surgeon tomorrow.

I say what ever speed works for you is fine. My brother always says it doesn't matter if you are in the fast lane or the slow lane as long as you aren't in reverse.

LOL...I like how your brother thinks! Hope your hubby will be okay, surgery in the mouth isn't a picnic.

As for the doc appointments on Monday they're for my hubby. He has health issues and makes his appointments on my days off so I can go with him.

Hi Debbie, I know how you feel. I always have to be early, no matter the occasion, I get frantic if I am late for anything. It just puts my day way out. I wonder if it is because I am a virgo, either that or a nut!

Debbie Wallace said...

I've been called a nut, too, Margaret. LOL Only I'm not a virgo, I was born in Dec!
