Saturday and Perhaps Breakfast Out?

I haven't heard from Bob so I just assume we are having breakfast at Eggbert's this morning. I will text him and ask in a little while.

I slept well last night but awoke at 4:00 to the sound of Missy choking.  She was on the bed. I picked her up and she was finally able to cough it up. It wasn't much but she couldn't get it down and she couldn't get it up. Later I just got up and got my washing treatment and wiped it up. By then, it was 5:00 so I just got up and dressed. After I dressed, I fed her and made myself a cup of Chai Latte.
She's back in on the bed now.

The mess continues in Washington.....thanks to Trump.

More later...

Bob picked me up at 6:50 and we went to breakfast at Eggberts. After I got home I watched a little news and then about 8:30, I read a book on my Kindle called "Digging In". It's about a widow and her struggles to get her life together.  I must say... I related. Maybe that's why I read until 1:00 and finished the book.

I'm not quite sure what to do now. I have the entire afternoon to decide. I'm not hungry yet since I had a sausage and cheese omelet for breakfast, some fruit and a toasted biscuit.

More even later....

I read all afternoon and then went to Sonic and had a mini sonic blast. I probably  didn't need it but..what the heck! You only line once.

I watched the news and afterward took my shower and put my PJs on so I could watch an Amazon movie with Missy. It was an Agatha Christie mystery. I forget the name.

At 8:45  Missy and I went to bed.

Friday and Lunch with Gay and Friends

I slept pretty well last night and did not wake up until about 5:00. Missy had wet on two different bath mats so I did some laundry this morning after I fed her and myself breakfast.

Then I cleaned the apartment. The only thing I didn't get done was stripping my bed. I will do that tomorrow. I did rake some leaves and bag them up. It was a beautiful spring day!

At 11:30 or so, I met Gay and her four friends from Chanute for lunch at the Kansas Buffet. I have to say it was very good! I wasn't sure what to expect since that restaurant has changed  hands. It used to be Sirloin Stockade. I think it's even better.

I took Missy out for awhile. It was a beautiful day. The next week or so is not going to be pretty. She absolutely loved it. I was talking to Evelyn and realized she was gone.  Rick was just getting into his truck and saw that I was looking for something. I told him she had wandered off while I was visiting with Evelyn. He helped me look and she came running when she heard us calling her. It seems to scare her to be out there by herself anymore.

I imagine I will have breakfast with Bob in the morning. Joanne will not get up at 6:00 to be ready to eat at 7:00.

More later...

I watched the news for while and then took my shower at 6:30 and looked for a movie to watch on Amazon TV. I couldn't find anything I was interested in watching so I ordered "Ghost",  an old movie..and watched that. Missy and I went to bed at 10:15.

Thursday and Back to Independence

I did not sleep well last night. I woke up at 2:00 with my right leg aching and my hands hurting. I slept only intermittently after that. However, I did get up and take an extra strength Tylenol capsule.

I will pick up Juanita about noon for her 2:00 appointment with Dr. Eslicker in Bartlesville. I usually go early to get her. It's a production just to get her in and out of the car since she's blind and 96 years old.  Afterward we will probably stop at Sonic and get a milkshake.  We will probably get her back to Independence by 4:00.

I probably will not do anything else today. I may take a nap when I get back home. I may clean the bathroom and kitchen again this morning. And if it gets nice enough this morning I may take Missy outside for awhile. She loves to go outside. I do need to stop at Dr. Barta's Animal Hospital and get some kitty meds for Missy to deal with fleas and ticks now that she's going outside more.

More later...

*Juanita called me this morning to tell me she had broken her toe and could not go to her doctor's appointment. After 8:00, I called Dr. Eslicker's office and re-scheduled her appointment for the 18th of April at 1:00 in the afternoon. Her appointment with Dr. Dystra, her heart doctor, is in Independence the very next Wednesday on April 25th, at 2:45. My appointment with Dr. P in Kansas City is Monday April 30th at 11:00.  Lots going on this next month. Bob and Joanne want me to eat the Salvation Army's dinner with them on April 10th,

Then I left early and went on to her Dr's office to talk to her nurse about her situation. She introduced me to an RN named Judy Shelby, who will call Juanita and check on her regularly.

Then I went over to Juanita's to check on her.  The toe she broke was the small one next to her little toe on her left foot.  It was swollen and had kept her awake last night. I helped her figure out her new cell phone and helped her organize her meals on wheels and microwaved one of them for her .

Then I left to come home and ate my own microwaved Walmart frozen lunch. Leslie tells me she has ordered me some Schwans frozen meals. They are supposed to be very good. Then I drove over to Sonic and had a mini sonic blast for dessert.

More later...

I came home afterward and watched the news and then took  my bath and put my PJs on to watch something on Amazon on TV.  I ended up watching a PBS station about Mr. Rogers. He seemed like a super great guy and really hit it off with children.

Missy and I went to bed at 9:00.

Wednesday and a Trip to Tulsa.

I will be leaving about 7:45 for Tyro, which is about 10 miles west of here.  I am going to meet my daughter, Leslie, and I will leave my car at the school there and we are going to Tulsa to see her surgeon doctor. A couple of weeks ago, he took a squamous cell carcinoma off her nose and she has had stitches there ever since. He will remove the bandage today and see how it has healed.

I didn't have a plan for today anyhow and I like to spend as much time with her as possible. She is the only child I have that lives  nearby. One of my sons lives in Phoenix and the other lives in Nashville. She lives about 15 miles from me and she is my only daughter.

I slept pretty well last night. I did get up at 4:00 but I had gone to bed at 9:00. I do need to run by the bank for some money before I leave.  I had my hair done yesterday and also ate out with Bob. So I only have a couple of dollars left.

My Blue Cross/ Blue Shield supplement premium comes out today. I checked earlier and it was not yet out of my account. It's almost $300 a month. My Cox internet is to come out today too.  It is almost $60. I always almost run out of money at this time of the month. And, of course, my rent is due the 1st. It will be tight. My social security does not come in until the 11th in April. If I do not pay before the 5th, Betty adds $25 a day to the rent. So far that has never had to happen.

More later...

I met Leslie at Tyro and we drove to Tulsa and she was an hour early for her doctor's appointment but they got her right in. The doctor removed her stitches and the wound looked good. She evidently will not have to have any radiation. Whew! I was so relieved.

We walked all around the square and even had lunch at PJ Changs.  It was very good and I brought some home for supper. I may fix some rice with it instead of using the lettuce wrap.

More even later...

I didn't eat again this afternoon. I did lie down with Missy and take a nap. Later, after the news, I took my shower and watched another movie.  Afterward Missy and I went to bed

Tuesday and Hair Day

I did not sleep all that well last night. I got my feelings hurt last evening and have not been able to work through it yet. Life is too short to obsess about anything but I know that but still haven't been able to get past it yet.

I woke up at 3:00 AM and never were able to get back to sleep. I finally just got up at 4:00.  I have dressed for the day and fed myself and Missy.

Today I will go to Independence to get my hair done and cut. It really needs it since wearing that little net cap on Tuesday for the surgery wiped out last Monday's hairdo. Afterward, I will go over to Juanita's house to balance her checkbook if she has her bank statement it. Bob will be over to Betty's to visit with her.

We will probably eat at Big Cheese at lunchtime.

I have developed a very sore right hip. Lord only knows what's that's all about. I took an extra strength Tylenol capsule this morning to try to get through it. I hope it will be better soon. Getting old is not for sissies.

This  is Mini, my daughter's Corgi. And  the other puppy you can barely see is Raven, her daughter. They went with John and Leslie to Roaring River camping this past weekend.

More later...

I finally got through my hurt. Life is too short to hold on to hurt feelings.

I did go to Juanita's this morning and balanced her checkbook.  I also filled out her health questionnaire for Dr. Eslicker's office forThursday's appointment and also returned her security box keys to her bank.

Then I picked up Bob and we went to Big Cheese to lunch.  When we got home I took Bob home and Missy and I took a nap.

I had some Yogurt for my supper along with some hot milk chocolate. After the new this evening, I will take my shower and lay down with Missy and watch a movie. I intend to go to bed at 9:00 or thereabouts.

Monday and A Quiet Day

I slept well last night and got up at my regular time of 5:00. I fed myself and Missy and got ready for the day. I have nothing planned for today. Most of the rest of the week will be busy.

It's supposed to rain today and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. The days I am busiest. 

Tomorrow I get my hair cut and done in Independence and then will go over to Juanita's to balance her checkbook. Bob will go with me to visit his sister, Betty, while I am gone to Juanita's.

I have nothing planned for Wednesday but Thursday I go back to Bartlesville to take Juanita to Dr. Eslicker's office to have him look at the place on her neck that her doctor thinks is cancer. She also wants a mole taken off her face.

Friday, my friend, Gay, and her four riding friends will be coming to have lunch with me at the Kansas Buffet.  So, it will be a busy week.

I need to go to Walmart today and get some more frozen dinners and a few other things like Kleenex and wet wipes.  I also need to get another coffeecake mix.

More later...

I did go out to Walmart and get all those things I needed and then also went to get gas too..while I was at it and it hadn't begun really raining yet..

Then I laid down with Missy and listened to some music and took a short nap. I must have needed that.

And I got a nice thank you note from the hospital where I had my surgery in Kansas City last week. The staff that took care of me all signed it. Wasn't that a nice touch?

After I learned that Leslie and John were going on home, I went up tour Sonic and bought a mini Sonic Blast with Reeses. That hit the spot. I had one of Walmart's sweet and sour chicken frozen  single meals for lunch. It was actually pretty good. It only cost $1.88 too.

I will read for awhile and then watch the news on TV at 5:00. It's only 2:30 now. I guess I will wait until Wednesday to vacuum my carpet. I didn't do that last Thursday like I usually do since that was only two days after the surgery. It will need it by this Wednesday.

More later...

It's time for the news now and after that I will choose another movie for this evening,

It's been a stressful day I plan to go to bed by 9:00 or 9:30 and hope to be able to sleep tonight.

Sunday and Church and Coffeecake

I slept pretty well last night but got up around 4:00 AM. After I dressed and got myself ready for the day, I put my coffeecake in the oven. Every other Sunday, I make a coffeecake for the church school class. On the alternate weeks Bob makes banana nut bread. He makes coffee for the class too.

Missy is back on the bed this morning. She wet on the bathmat I put under the litter box this morning. About every third day, she does that.  About three or four days a week, I have a load of laundry because of that. It's a small price to pay for her companionship though. She is a lot of company.

So far my surgery is really phenomenal.

It's almost time for my coffeecake to come out of the oven so I will get back to this later...

Well, it was finished and is now cooling before I ice it.  In awhile, about 8:00, I will call Phyllis to tell her I am driving this morning.

So more later....the dryer has stopped.

I got the dryer contents folded and put away and went to pick up Bob at 8:50 then picked up Phyllis.

The church service was good. Karan did a good job.

After church we three went to "Just Us" for lunch.  As usual, Kay saved us a table with our pie already set out for us. When we got home and I got both of them home, I printed off the newsletter for today and got those without e-mail out on the mailbox for the mailman to pick up tomorrow afternoon.

Missy and I laid on the sofa and I watched an episode of "John Kennedy, The Reckless Years" on Amazon.

I went out and raked a few leaves and put them in the trash. I am trying to eliminate having to constantly rake leaves and put them in small grocery bags.

The NCAA basketball tournament is on this afternoon and this evening until 60 Minutes can come on. I am so sick of sports....especially basketball. That running back and forth just drives me crazy. I prefer football if I must watch sports.

More later....

After 60 Minutes was over, I took my shower and Missy and I watched a movie on Amazon with Harrison Ford called "Regarding Henry" . At 9:30, Missy and I went to bed.
