The Penguins Are Stealing My Sanity

Hi Everyone... Well I finally figured it out... It isn't the hormones driving me crazy.. it is the PENGUINS I have to deal with... LOL THEY ARE TRYING TO STEAL MY SANITY... Ok background, I found out back in October I needed a hysterectomy after a vaginal sonogram confimed what I already knew... my fibroids grew back after my myomectomy which I had 3 yrs ago. Ok, so I talk to my doctor, I wanted RIGHT from the beginning to have my surgery in Febuary... First her office calls me & tells me my surgery is scheduled for December, well that is a no go for me... I have too many things to plan for... like work! So, we reschedule the surgery for jan 28, now I am gearing myself up for this surgery. Yesterday I get a pre op screening call from the hospital where the surgery is to take place... they have me scheduled for the WRONG surgery, they say the doctors office scheduled me for a myomectomy... good thing I spoke to the pre op representive. Ok so now I am getting crazy well CRAZIER. I call the doctors office to speak to them to try to straighten this all out... but alais... all I get is their answering machine!!! AHHHHHHHHHH... and of course they never called me back yesterday. So now today, I had to forgo sleep to try for 2 1/2 hrs to contact this office ( yep answering machines again)... See its not me... its the PENGUINS trying to steal my sanity... BUT I FINALLY straightened it all out... oh and you KNOW when I see my doctor, I am going to throw the BIGGEST hissy fit she has ever seen over this major faux pa... If I didn't like her so much I probably would switch doctors... And how was your day... LOL

Yes it is the penguins!

Hey Sweety, yes those will do it evertime. But now let's get down to how to cope with them. First you go buy yourself a Shamu. With him around the will think twice before being unruly. The DR however is a different matter even with Shamu they are not always settled. Just keep straightening things out and before you know it you will be a with that shinning new crown. We are here so lets us help with all those problems. Thanks for asking about my day it has went just fine. God bless

LOL, I don't know if they get fibroids... this may be just the diversion I need... I may have to go ask the crock hunter if he knows if penguins get fibroids......... FINALLY something to do besides panic & worry about my surgery... hey thanks :-)

Excuse ignorance but what is with the penguins? Do they really steal sanity?

I don't get it. Please fill me in before I lose my sanity trying to figure out what this is all about.
