Two Days

"Thank God" I told Ron.  "I think I'm getting manic." 

It's a nice slow one. 

Yesterday: got up, shower, went to the bank.  Went to the warehouse, bought a lot of treats. 

A very long ride downtown.  Unload treats and take into Metro building.  Call around, ask for a Metrolift employee with a handcart.  We got a lot of blank, gaping, faces, and confusion.  Until they saw the treats.  Oh!  For Metrolift!  Yeah, that Metrolift.  :p 

I left Ron with the treats.  Since we were downtown he had a problem with "sharks" circling, angling for treats. 

I went and got his yearly pass.  Ron tends to be very rude to the woman so she was happy to see just me, taking my time, thanks for working so hard... and she got it on the first time.  She was so happy. 

I went out to see a couple Metrolift employees loading the treats.  The man kept rubbernecking at me.  I guess I don't meet his vision of Ron's wife. 

I may be fat, but I'm not ugly.  [shrug] 

They thanked us and rolled the cart off to the elevator.  Ron had been promising treats for a while. 

We had a while 'till our pickup.  I got some bus passes, got a snack, used the (surprisingly clean) public bathroom, and put $20 on my bus card.  That'll last me a good while. 

I am very happy they are improving the bus system.  It's going to be wonderful for me. 

Basically, my local route will go to the mall, which will connect to useful routes for shopping and work.  I have had to take 3 buses sometimes; now only 2.  It's even only one route to the bank. 

On the other end, my bus goes downtown and connects to pretty much every other route in the system.  I could actually get another job if I had to. 

So, good for me. 

I thanked the information clerk and she gaped at me "You're the only person to say that".  I smiled and walked away with my schedules. 

We had a very long ride home, over 2 and a half hours.  I was very happy to exit the vehicle. 

I actually had to beg him to stop so I could use a toilet.  Ugh.  I was about to burst. 

I did find out lithium and friends work with cheetos and a snickers bar.  Huh. 

I was exhausted.  I went straight to bed and slept until 5 AM. 

I woke up, used the toilet, and found Gravy eating a large frog.  I took away what was left. 

The thing was huge, a frog, not a toad.  It's been horribly dry.  I have no idea where he found a frog. 

I did my God Time, showered, and even had screen time before I left. 

We went to Walmart.  Ron had paid me so I had a little cash. 

I got a fannypack and some fishing hooks.  I want to learn how to fish. 

I found a few things they finally had in stock, and happily snatched them up.  I had to take my stuff to work, so I didn't get much. 

I found a really nice cashier and told her she was on my favorites list.  She liked that. 

We had a good ride to work and worked our butts off.  Snacks needed a lot of work; so did the soda machines.  Food machine was down, so I had to fix that, and then stock both food machines.  I also organized the stockroom for our bottled water delivery and Truck Day.  Busy! 

I did virtually everything; very happy about that. 

"I don't want to work tomorrow" Ron whined, echoing my thoughts.  I agreed. 

So, we don't.

A trip to the hematologist

I slept OK but woke up really tired.  I hit the snooze alarm a few times, much to Biscuit's disgust.  But I'm getting ahead of mys...
