An Interesting Exercise

Today, I decided that it might be interesting to see just how many medical appointments I've had this past year. I created a spreadsheet. I had appointments on 125 different days. Some days I had multiple appointments - I think on about 15 of them. Estimated total time spent at said appointments - 161 hours. Travel time to each appointment - about 30 minutes each time. 30 minutes over 125 days is another 60 hours. So, a total of about 220-some hours of my waking days in 2008 were spent either in medical appointments or in transit to one.

That's about 5 or more weeks of a full-time job.

No wonder it takes me longer to get work projects done.

Puts things in perspective, doesn't it?

Happy New Year!

Hi Carver,
I figured you'd completely understand - I think you have perhaps even more appointments than I do! Happy New Year to you, too!
