What a night …

I have Tuesday afternoons off work at the clinic – and Jared did not feel well yesterday so he slept all morning. I came home from work- made lunch – took some clothes to the dry cleaners – dropped off *K*’s senior pictures to her mom – did laundry – and worked on my ideas for updating my website.

At 3 I has an appt. with my doctor for my recurring stomach issues. Lately I haven’t been able to get up or go to bed without a nagging stomach ache – I am thinking it’s just stress. My appt. was at 3 – like I said – at 3.30 I got up to ask the receptionist when I would be taken in – she said I was next. At 4 they called my name – and 4.30 the doctor came in. Now – I know that I work in a PT clinic so it’s a little different but I have never EVER had to have a patient wait that long! So I described my symptoms and they want to test me for an ulcer! So I was right – ulcers are caused by stress, right? Wrong.¬† Seems that they are caused by a bacteria in your stomach. So we have to set up that fun appt. (if you could pray for me that God heals me without even having to go get checked out – that would be wonderful)

So I thought we would stop at Verizon on our way to vote ‘cus my phone has stopped alerting me of missed calls and voice mails. We were at Verizon for about 50 minutes with the guy on the phone with the tech and resetting my phone and then reinstalling my phone and then resetting my phone and good news is that the VM and missed call alert works but now my phone goes straight to VM when I get a call. So now after almost an hour wait I am getting a new phone shipped to me!

Verizon is right across the street from the Boro building so we walked over to vote – the line was out the door and around the sidewalk up to the church! We voted in 2004 and we had to wait maybe 10 minutes – if that. This year – 42 minutes later – we voted. I was numebr 1212 at 6.42 PM. It will be interesting to see how Tioga County voted as a whole.

It was an afternoon and evening of waiting – which tired me out – I fell asleep at 9.30 while Jared and I watched coverage of the election!

I think I must have been in line waiting for more nervousness and worry to be handed out when God was giving out the qualities of patience and sympathy!
