You were on your way home from work or picking up the kids or maybe from working out
and then this.....
...Oh, the best laid plans, as they say.
Why is it that you finally remember what it was you wanted to do on your way home
when you get to your driveway?
The simple fact is that it happens to everyone at one time or another.
I can’t tell you how many times I have taken a different route home, in order to stop by a certain place and pick something up, only to ride right by and get home before I realize.
Sometime the situation is made a little more miserable by whatever needs to be done when you get home.
Helping the kids with homework and cooking dinner.
Starting the laundry or just gearing up for a much-anticipated tv show.
If it was anything else that was forgotten, it wouldn’t be that bad. Maybe!
In most cases, medicine is something we can’t go without.
That fact is even more so when the medicine is for an immediate illness or a loved one.
I'm not sure exactly how often Rollin picks up prescriptions for those forgotten times.
The times when you pull into your driveway and relieved turn off the car.
But right before you get out, your head drops and you sigh knowing you have to go back out.
I decided to write this blog after one of our clients called late in the evening and asked if we could run by and pick up her medicine.
I could hear the frustration in her voice.
She sounded tired and annoyed.
She even sounded as if she was disappointed in herself.
I let her know that we still had openings to pick up her medicine and even asked if she wanted us to stop by a restaurant on the way.
Turns out she was in the mood for Long Horn.
The fact is that there are going to be some days that things just get out of whack.
It may happen the entire day or at the end or anytime in between.
Rollin is here to help, but more importantly know that it’s just going to happen.
Don’t get down on yourself when it does.
Pick up the pieces and move on.
The world will keep turning and it will all be okay.
What makes a Super Woman, Super is her ability to solve the problem and move on in mind and moment.
No getting down on yourself.
No feeling guilty.
Ask for help and do what you can.
To help out with remembering prescription refills, you can print the downloadable sheet below.
Stick it on your car seat the night before.
When you leave out it will be there to give you a little reminder.
It also serves as a reminder to call on Rollin when you need help.
Print it as many times as you need to.
There are two per sheet so you can even take one with you to appoints if you need it.
