Big Day

Today should be another big day. Though it will not be as big a day as yesterday. I have an appointment in Independence to get my hair done at 7:15 AM. Then at 8:30, I will meet Juanita for breakfast and at 9:30 I will meet Suzy Kleinbeck at the clinic to help her put together some books for our new board members. When I am finished with that, I will come on back home and Bob and I will go to the market.

We had an enormous day yesterday. We left here at quarter of eight with Sage and drove to Manhattan, Kansas, a trip of 3 1/2 hours to return her to her mother. We took them to lunch, Bob did a little shopping at the mall and then we drove over to Westmoreland, where he spent all his childhood summers and we walked around town and he looked up an old play chum and had a good visit. We went down a country road and picked up three of those distinctive red rocks that the glaciers pushed down that way millions of years ago.

We have packed those rocks from place to place since the early seventies and left some at every house we have owned. They are extremely rare nowadays since everyone else decided they liked them too.

Anyhow, we got home about 6:30 and found a very hungry dog and cat that we had left outside all day. We fed them and let them in the house and after watching the president's speech, we took our baths and went to bed. Needless to say, I slept like a log until 3:30 AM, when Slinky decided he needed to get outside to do his thing. He came back in and I ordered him back to bed. In a half hour he let me know he was hungry again and I had to come in and quiet him down so I could get some more sleep. Without his two hearing aids, Bob hears absolutely nothing so I was the only one disturbed. I was going to leave Slinky outside earlier but he began barking to get back in and I was afraid he would wake my neighbor. So I just scolded him and told him to go back to sleep. This time, I slept until 5:30, late for me, and got up to find Slinky was still asleep. He's been fed now and I have a cup of coffee before me and will soon get ready to leave for Independence at 6:45.

Maybe later this afternoon I can get our laundry done.

Sounds like you all are really busy these days. I bet your hubby enjoyed seeing his old pal. Slinky sounds like he is a bit spoiled after you! lol.

Yes, I am afraid you are right, Judy.
