I called my mother tonight to see how she's doing but got the answering machine.
Thursday is my annual appointment with my gastroenterologist. It may not be the best week to meet with him since I've been a little stressed. Last night I didn't eat dinner until about 9pm and I was starting to get so cranky I was nearly ready to call sick into work.
As it turns out I think I have three sick days and another three or four days of vacation if I take all of the days I have planned. I can use sick time if I'm out a long time on Thursday. At my last job I think it took me about three years to realize I could use sick time for medical appointments. I was using my vacation time for them until I found out!
