Friday and Saturday

I woke up at 2 AM Friday morning and went to work.  I stocked and got the Dr Pepper order. 

Ron hadn't gone to the bank because they kept forecasting rain.  All he had to pay Dr Pepper were $300 in $5 bills.  I told him that wasn't going to work, took $300 out of my own pocket, and paid the guy myself. 

Ron offered to give me the $5 bills, but I told him I knew he was good for it.  After we finished at work we went home and I got a pretty good nap. 

I got up, did my God Time, and went to Walmart.  I had to get my medication, which cost about $200.  First stop, I went to the bank and changed the $5 bills for $20's.  Then I went to the pharmacy, leaving me with about $100. 

I did my shopping, Ron wanted to stay up front.  I found a fanny pack at the store, actually.  It is gray with orange accents.  Not necessarily the colors I would have chosen but the belt works for me and it is big enough for my needs.  It only cost $10, too.  I can live with that. 

I might have gone for something on Amazon but I could touch this and try it on, and I was supporting a local business.  So I got it. 

Pretty soon I was done and checked out, got Ron, and went home.  I didn't turn on the computer and went to bed early. 

Today I slept in until 5 AM.  Alright!  I hit the snooze alarm a couple of times because I had a fat and cuddly Biscuit.  Eventually I got up and fed him. 

We went to the warehouse.  I got 37 cases.  Jack took us to work. 

We had agreed today would basically be buy and park our merchandise, in the stockroom.  We did that.  Some things went into the fridge. 

We left and came home.  We had a very long ride.  It was us, the driver, and a lady from Chicago.  She wanted to go to Aldi.  However, the reservation person put the wrong address into the computer.  The driver went an hour out of his way trying to find it.  With us riding in the backseat.  It was a long and tedious journey but at least I got to see Lake Houston for the first time. 

I took a nap.  I forgot to set my alarm, which was set to give me time to do my God Time before we went out.  I couldn't, Ron's alarm went off about 20 minutes before our pickup.  We got ready.  This pickup was late, but not too bad. 

We were supposed to get the same driver both ways, but Ron called and complained he wasn't being given enough time to eat.  So they sent out driver away and sent someone else, half an hour later.  I gave him the food I had bought for the first driver.  He was very nice. 

We finally made it home.  I had taken my medication at the restaurant, but I had to get it out of my individual pill bottles instead of my pills-of-the-week, which were empty. 

When I got home I did my God Time, then I put my stuff in my new fannypack and did up my pills-of-the-week.  It took a while.  It's very tedious work, and nerve wracking, because I don't want to drop one of the organizers and have 50 prescription tablets all over the floor.  It has happened.  Thank God I don't have a dog to eat them up.  The cats don't care.  I still pick everything up of course but occasionally I will find a prescription tablet where I don't expect it. 

Again, so glad I don't have a dog to eat these. 

I finished that up and called Mom and Dad, who are dogsitting this week.  Dad is not impressed with the barking (sounds like me).  Overall, they are doing well. 

We hung up.    Ron hasn't had any blackouts the last couple of nights, thank God.  We have tomorrow off and aren't going anywhere, because they are having a big parade on one of the main roads near our home.  If we want to go anywhere, we have to take it, so forget it.  Plus, we always have a lot of "Church Ladies" riding on Sunday.  Most of them do not "represent". 

I did up the pills, I fed the cats, I got our soda delivery, I got our supplies, not a bad couple days.  Now I just need to set my clock ahead and I'm all set.

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.  ...
