I left off yesterday morning planning to come back later. By the time later rolled around, I was asleep. It's been one of those weeks.
Ray still has five weeks to go on the therapy. The rehab center will transport for $5/round trip. I may do one more week and then take them up on it. Or amybe have them do one day. The three days a week is a lot. It's too short a session to be worth coming back home but nothing tires me more than hanging out waiting. This morning it ran 30 minutes over and I was falling asleep (and getting a backache).
I think with the cost of gas I wouldn't quite break even but it wouldn't be too bad.
Nothing special going on. I cooked a pot roast for dinner with the usual vegetables. Rebecca made the biscuits and I taught her how to make one kind of gravy. At some point I'll teach her how to do the browning flour variety. It's a little touchier but it's not hard. I cheat a lot but I do make my own gravy. She sure likes to cook.
R & R are playing across the street until around 8. Homework done, what there was of it so they can bathe and be in bed between 8:30 and 9. Elcie's feeling a little puny but she made the day. Went to bed a little after six but she changed her mind and is lying on the living room couch. I wouldn't be surprised if she falls asleep there. She's okay; just cramping some.
I was going to tell you about my friend and the creative writing class. He has a 99 year old friend who is "writing" his memoirs in the form of telling stories to David. David records, the two of them edit, and another chapter is completed. He brings the older man to the class and reads the stories aloud for him. I've heard just one so far but he's led quite a life. It would be a shame for it to be lost.
The class was fun. I'm just not sure about 3 hours on a Wednesday morning. We'll see. I may be able to make part of it or even all. Depends on how much is going on.
The girls are in mourning over the former planet Pluto. I can't explain to them how yesterday it was a full fledged planet and today it's just a big chunk of ice and a "slave" of Neptune. And after they went to so much work to memorize all nine of them.
I got sidetracked for a couple of hours with kids.
Stilll can't come up with a title. Oh well. Sleep beckons although it's not late.
Thanks to all of you I haven't thanked personally for the comments and take care.
