I'm SO not a morning person...

Which I already knew... if I had any doubts though today solidified that for me. A few days ago we had Ari's appointment with the speech therapist to work on his food issues. While we were there they looked in his ears and did a tympanic membrane vibration test. Long story short, his right ear has abnormal fluid build up and they said we needed to take Bean to his pediatrician. So, that's where this morning comes in. I called for an appt. and they told me to come in at 9 this morning. They have weekend hours until noon, I said great, we'll be there. I get there, sign in and the somewhat rude desk girl tosses a paper at me and says, "you have to sign this too." I read, it says I understand I'm being charged an extra $65 since it's a weekend... I sign, I mean I'm already here right... dragged out of bed hours before I would have liked. I tell her they should really tell people on the phone about the extra charge before they come all the way here and she says, rudely again, it's a five year old policy and they just assume everyone knows. My lack of morning person-ness is really starting to become evident now and I tell her does it look like I have a five year old? No, I'm a new patient, you should tell people. Duh.

Anyway, we go in and the doc looks in Ari's ears and tells me Yep, there's fluid. What do we do?? Nothing. Have a good day. Seriously, that's all. I'm a little peeved at this point, I feel like I seriously wasted my whole morning and about $100 to be told something I already knew. What's the freakin point?? Couldn't I have just waited until his next check up to be told something I already was told by another doctor??? Whatever.

I'm so over all of this, doctors are at the bottom of my list of people I want to be around right now. Good thing I have a fresh batch of muddy buddies ;) Today is looking pretty lazy. I was supposed to have some people over for dinner but I'm really not in the mood to clean my house. I think I'm going to go back to bed while Ari's asleep, I feel like I need to start this day over again... maybe I'll get up on the other side of the bed!
