Once again I'm behind on posting, reading, and commenting. So do I catch up? No, I go hunting through the internet for memes and/or recipes.
We had a busy week. I'm finally getting around to many things I'd put off. Tackline one project a day which means I break even. New projects take their place. A friend of a friend sent us two huge boxes of clothes and they've been sitting in the front room waiting for me.
Finally I went through them. Out of both boxes, there might have been a couple of pairs of shorts or capris that fit me and one pair of jeans for one of the girls. Everything else was too big or too small. I bagged them up and passed them on.
We have accumulated so darn much stuff and I'm married to a packrat who suffers untold agony every time I suggest thinning it out. So I move things from one spot to another - rather like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic.
In between all that, Ray went to the emergency room twice (they didn't keep him but sent him home once at 1:00 a.m. and the other time at 4:00 a.m.). The last time they gave him a prescription for generic Aleve.
I sent his list of medications to the e.r.; two of which are ibuprofen (for inflammation and/or pain) and aspirin (for heart). I read the warning for the Aleve. DO NOT TAKE IBUPROFEN OR ASPIRIN while taking this medicine, it said. Needless to say, we didn't fill the prescription but what if I weren't so obsessive about reading instructions?
And why didn't someone take a look at the list I sent?
Poor Ray. He's turned into a pincushion. This last time the only vein they could access was in his foot. They've worn out both arms with blood tests and i.v's.
He's feeling better now I think.
The two younger girls and I did get to the barbecue Tuesday night and had a wonderful time. I have pictures but they include other people so I'm not sure about posting them. I think Rebecca ate 4 hot dogs, one hamburger, and grabbed one more hamburger "to go" as we left. She's suddenly experiencing a growth spurt along with the urge to eat everything in sight. She's our 2 pounder and was so tiny and frail appearing for so long. No more - she's almost caught me and closing in on her sisters.
Rebecca had a friend "sleep" over last night and I don't believe either of them slept at all. Now they're both out like lights. Rochelle and Elcie are swimming at a friend's house and it's as quiet here as it ever gets.
I cooked enough chicken for two meals yesterday so today will be leftovers.
And the girls are getting bored with all this leisure. They might not admit it but I think they'll be glad to see school start.
Their Uncle Tim took Rochelle and Rebecca to see the new Harry Potter on Friday (Elcie wasn't here). I sent her on Saturday afternoon. Elcie is the true Harry Potter fan but they all loved it. Said it was sad but it was good. I wouldn't let them tell me. Right now, I've read only three of the books and the final one comes out next week. I'm playing catch up with the films on dvd so I'll have some idea of what's happening in the Harry world.
Let's see - what else? Not much. I went for coffee earlier, picked up rat food and litter for Elcie's pets, a few things at the grocer's, and a book called Catatopia for Elcie that I couldn't resist - especially at 20% off plus my 10% discount.
And the Giants are about to lose their 3rd game sraight to the Dodgers. Yep, they did. There is no joy in Mudville.
Thanks to all for the visits, the guest book, and the comments. Since I don't feel like housework today, perhaps I'll get around to most of you even if I don't leave comments on all.
