One day a week

Posted on Thursday, August 23rd, 2012 at 8:32 am

Well, the trips to Houston as chauffeur have dropped to once a week, and my body appreciates it, though it’s a little hard to tell this morning.  At least I’ve stopped passing kidney stones for the time being.  Sleep was pretty broken last night, three segments of 2 to 3 hours each.  So I’m off to a slow start.

.

Heading into Austin today.  The vet has returned from vacation, so I can get some Tresiderm for the dogs’ ears.  Add milk and a gallant search for BlueBell Strawberry Cheesecake.  Five in possession, four more is the target, but a fifth for current summertime heat would be appreciated.  One a month is the target.  I have a week to find them before they go off sale, but today is the target date for securing the annual rations.

.

Thursday Jam tonight.  Got a tambourine on Tuesday at Guitar Center, but the other toys I wanted were MSRP, and Musician Friend has them greatly discounted.  So I ordered about half the list from there, but they won’t be here tonight.  They are in Oklahoma heading south as I write, according to UPS tracking.  The rest will be ordered next month.  Two $80 purchases is easier than $160 in one lump.

.

Bills still coming in from medical offices associated with surgery, but the ones I’ve seen tus far have been adjusted for PPO.  I’ll have to see what the grand total is before I start trying to raise funds.

Back from Austin with only one half gallon, but I scored the Slap Ya Mama Seafood Boil, a 4 pound bag.  The dogs will be thrilled at the medicine for their ears.  I’ll be eating shrimp cocktail (9/12 ct, wild) tonight, the orange slap recipe.  Mmmmm.
