I was supposed to have my one-year mammogram this morning, followed by an appointment with the breast care specialist. I say "supposed to" because I missed it. For the first time ever, I slept through my alarm and woke up twenty minutes after I would have been getting done.
They were really nice when I called to reschedule. I never do this, never miss appointments. I never show up late. I feel terrible. The thing is, today was the best possible situation for this appointment and I screwed up. On a normal night, I get home from work at 3am. To get up for an 8:30 appointment is rough. But last week I was on vacation on Thursday and Friday. Then I had the weekend off, and Monday was a holiday, so I went in to work early and was home before midnight. I was almost on a "normal" schedule. That's about as good as it gets for an early appointment in my world. My next shot at this is at the end of the month, and I'll need to take vacation time the night before so I can get home earlier. Sigh.
I think the reason that I overslept was because I had a hard time falling asleep. My boss, who lives in South Dakota, showed up unexpectedly last night. This was especially alarming because she is nine months pregnant and would not travel without a good reason. She came to deliver some news, which I am not allowed to share. All I can say is that I don't consider it to be good news, but some might not agree with me. Time will tell. I will be working on my resume, just in case. This kind of drama I really don't need right now.
