A week or so ago I finally took the time to make a few calls and schedule myself for vital physical maintenance, including:
- An appointment with a new dentist this morning. You may recall my last dental experience, which convinced me that I needed to switch. It's only been four months since my last cleaning, but because I have a recurring toothache, I figured I'd take any dental appointment I could get.
- A complete physical later this month. Lately I've only been seeing my doctor for my twice- or thrice-annual bouts of bronchitis and/or pneumonia. I figured it wouldn't hurt if she had a look at the big picture every now and then.
- An eye doctor appointment the weekend after next. I'm on my last pair of disposable contact lenses and I've decided I'd like a pair of glasses from this decade, in case I ever need to wear glasses in public.
Once all of that stuff is out of the way, maybe I can move on to surface maintenance. My sister got me a gift certificate for an eyebrow waxing and I could use at least one more pedicure before sandal weather ends. Hey, I just remembered that I have a gift certificate for a massage kicking around somewhere! Maybe I can take a Saturday sometime and put together my own run-all-over-town spa package. Hectic and relaxing by turns...
But first, I just got a postcard that all four cats are due for their physicals and shots. Hauling them all into the vet at once is always a delight. After that, I'll really need a spa day.
