Begin Again

Another day has dawned. Saw it happen, thanks to one fat cat named Martha!

Couldn't go back to sleep. The blood pressure situation has been addressed. They increased the dosage to 40mg. I had already sort of done that in an effort to make up for my mistake. If it does not respond by tomorrow, we will go from there. HeWho is trying to kill me with worry!!

Meanwhile, Cujo's wasp sting has healed and he is as good as new. Toni Louise and Eddie's yeast infections have cleared up considerably and they aren't chewing their skin off. And the park is open. The phone is the bane of my existance. the weather is horrible and the pool remains closed until ..... I don't know. 

The store is stocked and Dr. Pepper has come out with a new flavor. Dr. Pepper/Creme Soda. Unaware at the time of placing my order, I didn't get any. Today I will mix the two flavors together and see what it is like. Pringles also has a new flavor. Rotisserie Chicken. I have not tried this. Too much sodium and I don't really like Pringles. When Lays went nuts with new flavors, I tried a few and didn't care for them. I like plain old Lay's potato chips. Not that I can have them anymore. Too much salt.

Grease and salt make everything taste better, don't you know? Oh well. Having ventured out twice now in my mask, doused in hand sanitizer, I have decided I would just rather stay home. I remember my grandmother wearing gloves everytime she left the house. Cotton gloves that went in with the laundry. Maybe Covid 19 will bring them back into fashion. We touch so many things and I have never been more aware of that. I just remembered that I need to go wipe down the steering wheel in my car.

Someone called the store phone at 12:34 this morning. I decided to return the call at 6 this morning while I was drinking coffee. No one answered. I have had a few calls about the pool, but it seems the call of this season is "Do you have any campsites?" (Yes, yes I do, this is, after all a campground ... says the voice in my head) I answer in the afirmative and they ask, "Do you have one I can camp in?" When I ask WHEN this event might take place they seem to be confused about my question. "I just want to know if you have a campsite I can camp in." My brain starts to hurt at this point as I calmly explain that until I know the WHEN, I can't say. After we get that out of the way and I try to ascertain the mode of their camping adventure. Tent or RV, 30 amp or 50 amp and make my life a true nightmare as I explain each option.

I think I need to go back to bed and start over.

Grease and salt certainly do make everything taste better and to all those who tell me "Oh you'll get used to bland in no time at all" I wish they had only uncomfortable shoes to wear until I do eventually get used to bland. On the other hand, I can now taste the different flavours of different varieties of potatoes and now I know which one I like best.

So happy you returned the call at the crack of dawn!
Some people are short on shingles, and reasoning is not one of their super powers. how you deal with this is amazing!

Did I ever tell you about the time we were camping in NC and it was hotter than hades. Probbly twice as hot. I kept looking at the sign that said Air Conditioning, $1 a day. Finally I asked my mother if we could spring for air. And she said we didn't have it. Duh. A pop up camper in 1970. My only excuse is, it was so hot my brains had fried.

I don't eat flavored anything. if I want that flavor, I'll eat that thing instead of chemicals that mimic the flavor.

and that was an excellent call back. too bad you didn't wake them up.
