A Very Cold Monday

Neither Bob nor I are going to exercises this morning. It's too cold to get out and we will get out later to go to Bartlesville. He has a doctor's appointment there with Dr. Eslicker, the dermatologist. He likes me to go with him because he says four ears are better then two.

I slept well last night. I woke up at 3:00 to go to the bathroom. I noticed Missy had vomited on the indoor/outdoor carpet in the bathroom hall so I picked that up with Kleenex.. In a little while I will put some carpet cleaner on it and spot clean the carpet better than just picking up the mess with Kleenex.  I did get right back to sleep after all that activity which was a blessing. I awoke the next time at 5:30 and got up then, made the bed and got myself ready for the day. 

While I was feeding Missy and eating my own granola, Bob texted me that he was not planning to go to exercise class. I was glad because I wasn't going to go either. His appointment in Bartlesville is at 11:00 and it may be a little warmer by then. We will probably leave at 10:00 or so. Afterward I hope we can stop by the mall. I want to pick up an appointment book at the Hallmark store there for the 2017 year. I carry one in my purse to keep track of my appointments. I used to get one every year from my beautician but she has stopped ordering them. I may be able to find one at the Dollar General Store nearby here. It would be cheaper.

More later....

I went with Bob to Dr. Eslicker and helped him fill out the information sheet for the new year. Dr. Eslicker froze a half dozen places where he had keratosis. Afterward we went to McCalisters and had a cup of soup and a half sandwich. Then we walked around the mall. The appointment book at the Hallmark store was free. I was glad I hadn't bought one.

He never had a sore back or pain in his legs. His appointment with the orthopedic specialist is the 21st. The day after I leave for Florida. His daughter, Denise, will go with him and fill out his paperwork. I asked him to text or better yet, to call me with the results of what Dr. Hsu had to say about his back problem and if he will need surgery.

When we got home he came in to read yesterday's newspaper and then went on back to his apartment to take a nap. Marilyn R. called and told me a solution to the transportation problem to get the Tulsa airport by 5:00.  She suggested I go with her to Tulsa on Monday the 19th and stay overnight there and use the hotel shuttle to get to the airport by 5:00. She is going to do that when she goes to Utah but she is going to do it when she returns on the 25th. She gets in too late to drive back to Coffeyville that evening. Her room was to be $101.14. I got my reservations for the same motel I will stay at in Tulsa. The room was a lot more then the same room for Marilyn but Leslie said she would pay for it so I went ahead and booked it.  It will be $146.44 with all the taxes. I put it on my Amazon credit card and Leslie will re-reimburse me..probably at church on Sunday.

My kids are just wonderful to me. The boys contribute some to my budget each month and Leslie does things like this from time to time. When I went to Hawaii two years ago, she bought my plane ticket then.  She was so worried about her brother. It was Thanksgiving time and he was alone. He and his wife had divorced. His birthday was right after Thanksgiving and he would be alone then too.  My birthday was three days after his and we really celebrated. He took me to a fancy restaurant for Thanksgiving dinner  and we went to breakfast every morning at a cute cafe. I stayed a week then. I will be with him and his new wife two weeks this year. I am so excited!.

Bob came over this evening to watch TV until 7:00. When he left, I took my bath and will lie on the sofa and watch TV until 9:00. I got my cake for the Christian Church in Independence baked and iced and ready to load into the trunk of my car tomorrow morning.  Both Karan and Phyllis brought theirs over this afternoon. I get my hair done tomorrow morning after we deliver the cakes. Bob got his baked and will ice it in the morning. We will eat lunch at Big Cheese tomorrow.
