Ray isn't hanging around the emergency room - he's in a room with a bed. I talked to him twice today (now a little after 11 pm Thursday) but haven't been over there. I woke up with what I thought might be the beginning of a cold or some other bug and decided better to stay away. I'll get there tomorrow. He understands and there's no point passing on whatever I might have had which I now think was just a bad air day here and not contagious at all.
And Rochelle was sick Wednesday night and out of school today. She was fine by later in the day and so was I.
My bedroom t.v. did something weird yesterday and Ray's the only one who knows how to fix it. I booted the girls out of the living room (bedtime anyway) so I could watch at 9 and 10 yesterday and today. I never made it to 10 before I was asleep on the couch. Problem - I woke up at midnight last night and 11 tonight. Last night I was awake off and on most of the night; I hope tonight is better. I'll try again in my own bed in a few minutes.
I met Tim for lunch yesterday, ran a couple of errands, picked up Rebecca from the bus stop, and came back home. I've done what was necessary but not much else. At least with older kids, they're somewhat independent. Dinner was simple and so was cleanup. They helped with other things and no one had much homework for a change.
We don't know yet what's happening with Ray - maybe by tomorrow. I'd like him to be home for the weekend but I'd be surprised if that happened.
This has to be the most boring post ever - I'm even boring myself. Tomorrow is major shopping day after the girls have left for school. Not too bad this month; I'm low on cereal and the usual dry goods (toilet paper and laundry detergent always) but I bought cat food and a couple of other things earlier this week so I won't have as much lugging tomorrow.
I think I'm getting sleepy again or so I hope. I'll try to find something more exciting to report by tomorrow but don't count on it. The girls' candy sales start tomorrow and I'm too tired to even do my usual rant on school fundraisers that involve door to door sales. I think I'll pass on it this year and send a small donation to the PTA instead. They'll make just as much as they would from the small amount of money they keep from the sales
Now I know I've been around a year. I bet I was ranting about candy last year at this time.
I'm way behind on reading your blogs but I'll catch up. I've had problems focusing on reading yesterday and today; one of the things that makes me believe it's air quality that's bothering me more than a cold.
Thanks again for the good wishes. I'm feeling sleepy again - probably a good thing. It's warm but not hot so I should be okay. Forecast mid 70's (F) this weekend with possible rain which will clear the air.
Take care all and good night.
P. S. My friend "J." has a new blogging home.
