Tomorrow we fly north to see our extended family. I have a million things to do.
Tom threw his back out overnight! He's getting cold, heat, ibuprofen, rest - whatever it takes to get him back in fighting form. I haven't been "home" in 3 years. There are 4 toddlers I have never met, and a grand niece and nephew I've only seen once. I miss my family like crazy.
I went online to check us in (24 hours in advance) and also changed our baggage choices from carry-on to checked so he doesn't feel compelled to lift heavy bags up high when we board the plane.
I accidentally knocked a full glass of water off the kitchen counter. It shattered all over the floor.
I did laundry, and packed our bags on and off all day. It's so hard to make decisions. I'm making lists so I don't forget anything.
I drove to the bank to get cash. There was only one bank clerk. The man in front of me was trying to do something shady. The bank clerk wouldn't let him. He was argumentative. It took forever. Grrrr!
I went to the store to buy magazines and snacks. Then I stopped at a gas station to fill up the car's tank. The outside card reader wouldn't take my credit card. I had to go inside to pay (horrors). My card worked fine inside.
But while I was driving home a red light on the dashboard started flashing at me. Apparently there's something wrong with the brakes. I guess we'll take Tom's car instead of mine. I wonder if his car has a reasonably full gas tank?
When I got home I accidentally knocked another glass full of water off the exact same place on the kitchen counter. It shattered, too.
As I was writing this, I got a call from my doctor's office telling me my lab results. Apparently I'm pre-diabetic, for crying out loud.
I did a little housecleaning. The house is still a mess. Who cares?
