Why so secretive??

New tech...hadn't met me yet. I think it's because she saw my prosthetic in the monitor and didn't want to have to try to explain what she didn't understand to me.

Rejoicing! Going electronic didn't blow up the facility and horseshoes did not fall from the sky. We survived going live!

I was supposed to go to Winthrop today for a BP workup. Instead I had the Mother of all migraine headaches. It started yesterday and just got worse through the night. I finally was able to fall asleep for a good deep nap and it broke. So I will try again for Winthrop tomorrow.

Kylie, I saw a show on Nature tonight about the kangeroo problem in Canberra. And I thought we were bad with the occassional moose wandering into town.

Now every morning at seven a.m. if I am up I watch Big Cat Diaries. I have gotten to know all the names of the different cats, which cub belongs to which mother, etc. I tell my son this. He give me a look. Then we get to talking about Murder She Wrote. I tell him I prefer the stories that take place in Cabot Cove. I know all the women in the beauty parlor, the Mayor, etc. He then gives me a look. It seems after further conversation, that I know more about the residents in a fictional town and animals on a Reserve in Africa than I do my own neighbors in the building. I think I need to get out more. I also think my son is making fun of me. Is old age starting to set in?

Andy, I'm glad you have a potential "fix" for the shoulder issue, but it sucks that you have to have surgery. I had "micro tears" down one side of my spine that all connected up to make one BIG tear and cause me horrifying pain a long time ago. Its sure no fun, especially when you don't have anything in your life you can adjust to make sure it doesn't happen again.

Planning my day here. I'm off now for holidays and today is shopping/laundry/packing day. Costco run, regular grocery run, vacuum out van, pack dry goods in boxes, find the cooler to pack in the AM, write a "pet care" list for MIL who is staying with the pets, make sure there are clean sheets on the guest bed, and do laundry in between all those chores.

Oh, did I mention the hoards of people who will descend upon the house today? The girls are popular and will be saying good bye to all their buddies who will have to do without them for a week or so.
