We’ve been having some trouble with our “on-demand” feature of our cable service. When trouble-shooting it over the phone didn’t fix the problem, we had to schedule an appointment with one of their tech guys. He got here earlier this morning, and of course he couldn’t find anything wrong with our signal. That means that it’s time to replace the receiver. Of course, the tech guy didn’t have a new receiver in his truck, so he had to go back to the office to get one. That meant that I had to sit here and wait. Why is it that I’m perfectly content any other time to sit at home and quilt or read … but when I know that I have to stay home and wait for an appointment, no - that’s when I want to get out or start something that I don’t want to have to stop in the middle of when the tech guy arrives (hence the delay in getting this posted).
We’re still waiting for the lab results on our Abby’s tumors. She’s healing nicely, and she seems to be in good health … other than the arthritis in her hips (she is 12 after all) and her IBS. But I can’t help but be concerned about those tumors.
And we’re waiting for our Spring Training trip. We’ve booked our motel, and we’ve purchased our tickets (which we’re waiting for, too … they should be here next week). I'm ready to start packing *now*.
I don’t like waiting … patience is not something that comes to me easily … but I am learning to live in the now, instead of focusing on what I’m (not so patiently) waiting for. For that, I am thankful.
