Take it off of hold

Today was a long day, 12 hours, so I may be incoherent. 

I didn't sleep well last night and got up at 2 AM.  I got ready for work. 

Ron's legs were bothering him, a lot, so we decided to take the wheelchair.  Paratransit was able to adjust the trips to accommodate the wheelchair. 

On our first trip, Ron would have been packed in the back seat with 2 other people, so a good thing he was riding in his wheelchair.  They rode us around for an hour before taking us to work. 

Our delivery was supposed to come between 6-8 AM.  It didn't come until after 10.  It was so late we had to suspend our pickup from work "Put the ride on hold". 

In the meantime, we did all the stocking we could.  Ron's leg has bothered him all day, nothing I could do about that. 

He drank a lot around dinner but I'm getting ahead of myself. 

We finally left work around 11 or so.  We went to the bank to deposit some change.  We had a good ride.  All the drivers were nice about strapping Ron down in the wheelchair. 

We got to the bank and did our business.  It takes a while to do a coin dump. Also, there were a lot of people there.  I guess a lot of people get paid at the end of the month. 

Good thing I remembered to mail my health insurance today.  The PO box is in Dallas so I'm not too worried about it getting there. 

We had to put the bank ride home, on hold, because we were running so late.  According to Dr Pepper, they had a problem with a printer, and the guy got lost trying to find us.  Frustrating. 

Ron did give them my phone number as a secondary. 

Back to the bank, we finally finished, Ron paid me, and we called to take that ride off of hold.  We had to wait a while on that but we did it. 

We got home around 2.  I was exhausted, hungry, and thirsty. 

I think I did the smart thing, I had a small snack and then took a nap.  I slept for about 2 hours and woke up pretty energized, for me. 

I still have some anxiety, etc, but not awful considering.  I did go way over my caffeine allowance today, waiting on our rides.   Not excusing that, but it may come back to bite me later tonight. 

I notice if I have too much caffeine, I can usually get a nap, but later on I have trouble sleeping at night.  I hope I'm wrong. 

Ron, frustrated with his leg pain, called the doctor.  The test results could take 7-10 days to come back.  If something is urgent they will call us. 

When we got home I don't know what he did but he was quiet while I slept.  When I got up, though, he got into the vodka and wine, telling me he was "sorry if he had a blackout but he couldn't take it anymore".  So far he has behaved. 

I hope that continues.  It's been a long day and the last thing I need is him belligerent all night.

A visit with the parents

So, my Dad's in town.  Along with my adoptive Mom.  Say what you will, she did raise me.  I slept pretty well last night - no noise.  ...
