I decided to to go the urgent care facility in my town because one of my good friends was just diagnosed with strep throat a few days ago. I wasn't running a fever and I didn't see the funny spots on the back of my throat, but because someone I'm in relatively close contact with tested positive for strep I didn't want to screw around. I was at the urgent care place a few minutes before it opened, thank goodness. I was maybe the fifth patient through the doors and it took me an hour and a half to see the doctor. People who walked in an hour after me were told that the wait could be up to three hours and that they should think about calling back later to inquire about the wait time. Luckily once I got back there the visit didn't take too long--the nurse took my vitals and did a swab for the quick strep test, I waited about ten minutes or so, and then the doctor came back with the test results (negative, yay!) and I was out the door. I am very glad I don't need antibiotics because they always make me feel lousy. I'm just not a fan. Another plus: I brought my laptop with me and got a lot of work done on one of my dissertation chapters.
I needed to stop and get some food and cold medicine, so I stopped by the grocery store on the way home. It was lunchtime and I was hungry so I just could not pass up the salad bar. I made myself a nice spring mix/spinach salad with some veggies and a few more unhealthy toppings, but I needed a little comfort food.
|I really REALLY love salad bars.|
