Night Owl

I must be turning into one. Cuz came to visit today. She and her sister had been working on a project until the wee hours yesterday morning. She was surprised when she got home to see my light still on. Of course, the kitchen light stays on 24/7 since I dare not turn it off.

Early this morning, I woke up (after another late night) and decided to sleep another hour. I was shocked when I looked at the clock and discovered it was five minutes until 10. I rolled (or climbed) out of bed and went to the bathroom. Before I could finish in there, the doorbell rang. It was my nurse friend to give me my shot.

On the way to the door from the bathroom, I’d pulled on my ratty old housecoat. No bath. No shower. I smelled pretty ripe. I’m sure she could smell the stench because I was about to stifle myself. She gave me my shot and didn’t linger.

I was still in my RH when Cuz came in this afternoon. Still no shower or bath. When she left, I did go in and bathe my body and get dressed.

My trip to town has been postponed again. I called to get the status of my thyroid prescription and it had yet to be approved. I’ve checked a couple more times and nothing has changed. Guess I need to call the clinic in the morning. I can’t put off going to town much longer. I’ve been eating Dole Banana Bites and I’m down to one lonely orange. I do have a pomegranate and a half. I want to make the trip take care of both prescriptions and groceries and not have to make more than the one.

Matrix called today to let me know the nurse will be here tomorrow between 12:15 and 2:15. When we hung up, I happened to wonder whether it was EDT or CDT. I called back and the girl told me it’s whatever time zone I’m in. That’s a big help. I’m right on the line. As a matter of fact, when Cuz walks from the front of their house to the back, the time on her cell phone changes from Eastern to Central. Guess I have a three hour window instead of just two.

This evening, I got an email from Matrix outlining what I was to have ready.

To prepare for your visit, please do the following:

  • Gather your medications and vitamin supplements
  • Have your primary physician information on-hand
  • Collect recent lab results for review (if available)
  • Have your health insurance card
  • Wear socks or slippers
  • Prepare a list of questions you’d like to discuss

I don’t know why socks or slippers. Maybe they think I pad around the house barefooted. I got in the habit of not doing that when Twinkle was in residence. I never knew when I might step in a gift she left for me. I should dress up and present myself at the front door in heels.

The weather has warmed up considerably from the last three days. I turned the a/c on for a few hours this afternoon. It’s off again and the EcoBreeze has taken over. Oh, and I failed to call about my budget billing. I’ll try to remember to do that tomorrow.
