06:19 pm: Lunch With Most of My Brother's Family
I not only had to get up a couple hours early, I didn't sleep well. It's a good thing that when Junie hears the alarm, she wakes me up -- I had the bad ear up. Dixie Bones has a new brick facade and a catering truck was on one of the handicapped spots and too close to the other, but there were regular spots close enough. The restaurant is in the parking lot of a very old and cheap shopping center, but the people who came in were almost all businessfolk.

My brother, his wife, and their daughter came; their son is living with his girlfriend's family because he's mad at his folks. I renewed my belief that my sister-in-law is not very bright (my brother always dated or married women who were very submissive or not very bright) in that I had to keep explaining things to her. They brought me a present -- a neck warmer -- that has clearly been worn quite a bit and not washed. I think I'll wash it and take it to the charity the next time I go.

Their daughter had a grilled cheese sandwich, I had the Giant Stuffed Potato with pulled pork and brought about half of it home, and my brother and his wife shared a meatless Giant Potato and a pulled chicken plate.

I was really close to sleeping on the way home so as soon as I got here, I swapped shoes for slippers and Spirit and I slept for 2.5 hours. We woke up because a pharmacist who is going through my meds had some questions. Kaiser has asked me to write up a form with my meds and show that I know what they're for and how to use them before, and the letter with this one made it seem rather required (or see a pharmacist in person), so I attached a copy of the pink paper with diagnoses, insurance info, and meds and sent it off. Even I can't read my handwriting after a few days. So the pharmacist had several questions and there would have been fewer if he'd asked if I had a nephrologist. I mentioned her and then he was completely comfortable with the meds and labs.

I still wish you a happy birthday, even if I don't have a used unwashed neck warmer to give you!

Nice to Hear From You

It is nice to hear from you. The old canopy was getting ratty - it had to go. Sorry about the parking space. We are supposed to keep it clear of non-handicap and our guys. Obviously something broke down.

Ah, I'd told my brother about the bright yellow, but Google still got him to the right place. I love your BBQ!

Happy (belated) Birthday!
Glad your lunch worked out. Bummer about the present.
I'm glad you made it home safely being as tired as you were.
Take good care,
Doris

Thanks! Usually they don't bring a present, and that would have been fine. Yes, I was worried about driving a bit and I've been much more sleepy than usual lately.
