If you missed the start of this series, you can find it here. A lot of things will be the same or very similar.
Everything with the schedule went good last night. The Boys went to bed on time and went to sleep not too long after. I looked at the sunset here and there, took a few pictures, but nothing I haven’t posted a bunch of times, so we’ll skip that part.
One thing I’ve noticed is, the sun is definitely setting farther and farther south each night. I have a picture from Summer Solstice, I’ll see if I have one from the Equinox too. I’ll post them together and you can see the difference. Education at Casa Cuckoo, who’da thunk it?
Younger never did come get the car. I didn’t really expect her to. She finally got her tax refund and her stimulus money so she’s okay financially for right now. She’s still looking for a job, but with things shut back down cuz people are Idjits, the job market is non existent.
I had Older change the dressing on my leg. The pad was slipping (don’t you just hate when that happens), the gauze was slipping, and the whole thing was bugging me. It’s healing well. There is still some swelling around the worst parts, but the long split is scabbing over and it looks good. I mean, it looks terrible, but the healing looks good.
I took my pill at 10pm but didn’t go to sleep until around midnight. One kitty wanted love and the other kitty wanted to sing and play. GRRRR! Cats!
I got the “polite” wakeup again today. He cracks me up! “Excuse me. Gramma come living room, please.” I thanked him for using his manners and told him I was on the way.
It was 6:04am when I had everything set and settled, so the wakeup was probably around 5:45am… normal time. We just hung out, each with our devices, him laying against my left shoulder, until it was time for his meds. Meds were given and I made “morning” for Sven The Brumating Dragon.
More chillin on the couch. I drank coffee, he munched Apple Jacks and drank water. He hasn’t had a “juice” since he was so sick. It’s great, water is better for him, cheaper and better for the environment too. It’s just so weird after so many years of having to make sure we always had it, then he just stopped. He’ll still ask for “‘nother juice, please” out of habit. If we give him one, he puts it aside and asks for what he meant to ask for. So weird.
Daughter got up around 8:00 and we did the Couch Sittin Shuffle. I got more coffee and went to my room for Horizontal Time.
Ben played, he Bounced me, he harrassed Zeus, he hung out with Daughter… it was mostly chill. Even the weather was nice, 78-79F (26C). I called my doctor’s office around 1:00pm about the medication needing refill. I spoke to an actual person and they sent the refills over. What?! I was starting to get a little scared. I’m not used to all this smooth running.
Ben’s doctor called Daughter back and Ben’s med situation got sorted too. Why was everything going right?! That almost never happens at Casa Cuckoo. We have good days, sure… but two doctors’ offices taking care of medication requests so easily? Maybe that happens to other people, but my experience was usually phone-tag and delays, delays, delays…
At 3:30 Daughter went to her room to charge her devices. I decided to stay in my room until Ben came to get me. He used to play in the living room by himself, there’s no reason why he can’t do it now.
Around 4pm he knocked the cardboard out of the window. Daughter had turned the AC on earlier and if it’s gonna run, the rest of the open window needs to stay blocked. I went to investigate.
Ben saw me and said “Gramma come living room.” I told him he could’ve just asked without knocking the cardboard out. So, after picking up all the dominoes before Dogzilla could scatter them hither and yon, I took up Couch Sittin. Ben was eating Oreos, drinking a mini can of Diet Coke and watching his tablet. Exciting times at the Casa today, folks.
Daughter came to take back the Couch Sittin Duty around 5:00pm. Ben was playing with his chalk and making Happy Noises. She called the pharmacy to make sure Ben’s meds had been filled, they were. I got a text that my Protonix was ready.
Daughter is starting Ben’s dinner. First med is about a half hour away. I’ll probably go pick up the meds, and a few other things, while Ben is eating.
Thank you for stopping by today. I know the Adventures weren’t the usual kind, I know there weren’t many laughs, but I didn’t fall down and injure myself, that’s good right?! I have to go pick up the rest of the meds tonight, so who knows what could happen? Come back tomorrow and I’ll tell ya all about it.
