The Friday Five

This past week has been very stressful. Five things which have me breaking into the candy house and aspirin bottle to keep my sanity.

1. 5 hour wait in the hospital emergency room for admission orders. (Actually, that was pretty fast response time considering the ER was very busy)

2. The Blue Cross/Blue Shield automated telephone answering system. There is no way to override the system to speak to a live person. BC/BS are you reading this? Your system sux.

3. Going round in circles over the same issue.

4. A 4 hour wait for the hospitaler to sign the hospital discharge order. (The wait wasn't so bad as I had the Nook Color with me so spent a good portion of the time happily reading)

5. Stubborn elders, the root of the problem

Misery loves company. Have you had a stressful week this week? How do you deal with stress?


  1. Exercise usually does it for me-- that and drinking.

  2. Hmmm...not anywhere near as stressful as your week.

    Actually, my week was pretty zippity.

    Missed you on IM last night.

  3. Three words...

    Get a Dog!
