Life. Don’t even talk to me about it.

Published October 5, 2014 by Iphis of Scyros

It’s just one of those days where I can’t even figure out what happened.  Other than a lot of time-consuming nothing.

My brother hit his head quite hard last night, so when it was still hurting this morning, he became convinced he had a concussion.  I had to go get him, drive him to one of those urgent care centers, and then I had to drive him to a different urgent care center, because the first one didn’t have a CAT scan.  Then I had to rush home and feed my cats (due to one of them having kidney issues, I have to give them canned food, which means feeding them four times a day, which gets more than a little annoying) and then hurry back to pick my brother up again.  Fortunately, the second urgent care center was actually pretty close to my house, so that wasn’t too awkward, but it was still annoying.

Then while they sent the CAT scan results to the first urgent care center (so the doctor he’d spoken to earlier could look at them) I had to take him to his place, drop him off, and go to the Target near him to get cat food, which was a royal pain, because that Target is always crazed on weekends. (But I was completely out of cat food, and it had to be Target, ’cause it’s much cheaper there than at the grocery store or the pet store.)  Then I go back to get him, and then we finally had had time to watch this week’s Doctor Who, but I couldn’t go home until the urgent care center called back to let him know if he had a concussion, or brain bleeding, or whatever else might have been causing the extended headache.

Ultimately, they finally called back around 5:00, and it turned out that nothing was wrong.

I’m glad that nothing was wrong.

But it was a colossal waste of everyone’s time.  (And rather a waste of his money, if his insurance doesn’t cover the $300+ cost of the CAT scan!)

So, in the end, I accomplished nothing today, apart from reading about 20 or so pages of the second book that’s due on Thursday.  But I didn’t write a single word of my paper, and I somehow doubt that’s going to happen at this point in the day.

Tomorrow I need to stay home, not answer the phone, not do anything other than working on that paper.  And laundry.  I have to do laundry.  But that doesn’t take all that long.  Mostly, I just have to get that paper written, or else!
