My Day..... I owe my husband, big time!
Thursday, June 28, 2018
My day started good. I got up a little earlier than usual, so I started walking a little earlier. I finished early too. I had to take Mary, my elderly friend, to the Bone and Joint for a early morning This is about 45 min. to 1 hour to drive. I had to leave just before 8, so that I can also help her dress (she had surgery 2 weeks ago on her wrist). She's pretty self-sufficient, but there are a few things she can't do now.
Back to my story. I even had a pot roast in the crockpot planned. While I was walking, I remembered I didn't have any potatoes. Ugh! That's ok, I can dash down to the grocery story when it opens at 7:30. My usual routine is walk, then shower and dress for the day, then sit down at computer to drink my coffee and take my pills. I didn't have time to sit even for a min. I drank my coffee while throwing onion, celery, roast, carrots, potatoes into the crockpot. I headed out the door to pick up Mary. I was halfway to Zootown, when I remembered, I forgot to take my pills! Ugh! By the time I got to Zootown, I could feel my blood pressure going up. I called my husband and told him my routine was interrupted and I forgot to take my pills. I finished by saying, "Would you?" He's so sweet! He brought them to me! As I said, I owe him Big Time! I was very thankful to him. If I knew how to do something really nice for him, I would do it! After being married for 47 years, we're both doing nice things for each other.
Mary's appointment also included an appointment with a special Physical Therapy next door that specializes in hand and wrist. They made a custom brace for her hand and wrist. All in all, her appointment for doctor and PT took 2 hours.
From there we went to Barnes & Noble because she's bored not being able to do anything except watch TV or read books she's already read. Then to Lunch. After that, to Costco and the parking lot, which is the worst parking lot that any Costco had and the worst in Zootown. Because of that, the drivers are very aggressive with parking spots. The parking lot was really full. I finally found a spot, but we had a hike to get to the door. Then we left for home.
We were about 4 miles to home, and there was a car parked along side the road. It was an older couple and they were hitching. Its extremely rare that I do this, but I stopped to pick them up. It turned out it was a mother and son. He said, "I could have walked, but not with Mom" he was very attentive toward her. He also knew my boys. So he was mid 40s. I thought he was older than that. I gave them a ride into town to their home. Then took Mary home. I feel I did the right thing. I told her she looked familiar. We knew each, but not well. Mainly, by name and site. That's why I like living in Small Town Montana!
This first thing I was greeted with the aroma of my cooking pot-roast when I got home, How nice!
All in all, it was a good day, with just one little bump that my husband fixed.
